In my office environment there were two women with whom I connected very well. I am inclined to think that part of the reason is my femme (may I say) aura which though I don’t act overtly effeminate, I believe can be sensed by other woman though they consciously may not realize it themselves.
As humans we possess an inherently spirit component which can and does communicate. I believe this part of me somehow connects with other cis women and makes them feel more at ease with me in a given situation. I have noticed this while also noticing, sometimes with a mental chuckle other times with a painful sadness, that conversations amongst myself and women subtly begin to change when for some unknown reason I suddenly become a man. It is almost like the femme spirit connection that has made them comfortable with me gets short circuited so that then I must be treated as a male.
In our office environment I have enjoyed times of, may I say girl talk? One of the ladies was expecting. I have enjoyed some motherhood talks that frankly I thought were reserved for the status of “women only.”
With one of the ladies whom I believe is lesbian I was seriously considering opening up to her about my own trans identity. We were all very comfortable together and such female connection helped me while en drab to manage my dysphoria.
They have both left our firm. I am now in an environment of men. They are good men, but to be sure would never accept my trans identity and certainly can’t be connected with on a femme level.
Yes, I lament and am left lonely at work. Such is the lot of we who are trans. Thank you ladies for being here for me.
