      Why don’t Civil Servants get their own category?  Most people out there think we all wear women’s clothing under our work clothes – it’s just that for some of us it’s true!

      Thanks for the poll, Jennifer

      As the beneficiary of a classic English education I’m a generalist so to speak.
      A degree in English (post-conquest English), a degree in Fine Arts specializing in graphic printmaking. Following a series of dull minded jobs I sot of fell into social work with deaf teenagers.
      Somehow I had the gall to through a promising career away and follow my dream of teaching skiing… 25 years later, on a perfect day with perfect snow a sudden change happened and I quit!
      Went into the IT business for several years before striking out on my own again as a freelance graphic designer!
      Followed that up with some time in the construction industry as a site boss the joined my SO in her accountancy business helping struggling startups…
      And here I am! Plain old Polly

      Graduated BSEE and I was in engineering for 25 years.  Got all the way up to management.   It paid well but I hated most every second of those years.  Finally called it quits and pursued my dream of opening a bar two years ago.  It was going great until this year.  It’s been ruined and I’m at square zero thanks to Covid and our idiot governor – ya know, the egomaniac who wrote a book on how great he handled it here, even though our state has already permanently lost 40% of all it’s small businesses – and that number grows every day.  Relocation time.  Robyn, luv ya Sis, see ya in AZ  : )

      I graduated in mechatronic engineering in 2013 and in the same year I found a job in IT consulting/development, however I’ve never took this as a suitable career option for me. Rather, it became just a source of money to pay my debts and help me out with future plans. So far, this is my main occupation right now.

      Meanwhile, since 2018, I’ve been building up my skills as a race engineer. In the beginning of this year I was accepted in a selection for new freelance data engineers for a motorsport series, however I was allowed to work for them only once, mainly because of pandemics.

      My plans for the next years are to get rid of past debts, try to get as much experience as I can with local motorsport series and move to another country (UK? Europe? America?) so that I can do my MSc and work full time with motorsports. Designing cars/motorcycles, helping drivers/riders to run faster and win races, living my passion to the fullest.

      xoxo

      If by that you mean what do I consider my primary vocation, I’d have to say the arts. However like many in the artistic community, that doesn’t pay the bills. So for that I work in transportation. Nice to be an essential worker!

      I was a mid level manager in the defense industry, now retired. Always had a security clearance so had to keep crossdressing very private.

      I work as a software engineer for a major aerospace company. The company is very supportive of the LGBTQ+ community, and I came out at work in August 2019. The company has been supportive of me as an individual.

      I do maintain a security clearance and will do for the foreseeable future.

      Had to go with “other” since I’m into computer stuff. I keep lots of computer running and updated.
      Sadly while they are spread out all over the world I never go to any out of town (have some in office for testing) but at least I can work from home all the time and with that kelly can be out most of the time (just being careful with video calls)

      I travel all over the Western Region for HP that goes from Chicago all the way out to Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada up above all that…

      I’m hoping that after travel becomes normal again, I might have a chance to use my work travel as an opportunity to meet some of you ladies and make some new friends in person.

      I’ve been on disability since 2008 but before that I worked for a software company. I was hired as a font development tech, which meant I programmed pharmacy warning labels, signatures, and logos onto printer memory. I also scanned, cleaned, and turned those signatures and logos into custom fonts. Eventually I was also the company webmaster and the de facto graphic artist.

      And I’ve been in women’s underwear part time for many years also. Seriously, that few of us voted “women’s underwear”? Are we that old or is the joke that obscure? Since I’m only 52 please let it be that obscure. 🙏 😁

       I was an attendant at a little gas station then in a thrift store. I went to beauty college and on to becoming a hair stylist for most of my adult life which seems a long time ago now. Also worked at H & W screening applicants for assistance.

      Retired in 2015, at 68, waited till I turned 70 to collect SS. Was half owner in small manufacture company (process control), sold for a good price and haven’t looked back. Now I invest to make the money to live with no care. Have fun as Alysha but still don’t go out (beard thing) but still it’s great.

      Hey Roxy.

      I used to do voluntary work for a local advice bureau ( whilst I was a gyro jocky lol. My way of giving back). It was some of the most fulfilling stuff I have ever done. Payment wasn’t in wages but seeing folk get over what had seemed like an insurmountable problem until they sought advice from me at their local CAB.

      Some things are more important than money but it sometimes doesn’t seem like that when cash is in short supply!

      Take care Roxy.

      Annie.

      I used to be a spark (electrician) for abt 20 years then had some time as a gyro jockey (i.e. unemployed) followed by a shoe shop owner.

      Gave all that up to get my professional qualification in the mental health field and now work full time as a mental health care coordinator and thetapist. Also work part time as an entrepreneur.

      Take care girls

      Mineral exploration geologist/geophysicist.

      I help companies find new mineral deposits that can be extracted and processed to produce the metals and precious metals that we use every day. My work is primarily in remote field locations.

      Exploration is still a pretty macho, rough and tough business, certainly not a place where I can let my fem side out, but you never know what might be under my grubby field gear 😉

      A bachelors degree in mechanical engineering started my initial career in engineering for 6 years.  I felt stifled and underappreciated as an engineer so I branched out into engineering sales and had a 28 year career selling machinery.  Meanwhile I also earned an MBA along the way.   If I had not had the success I had to retire at 60 years of age, I might not have gone on my self discovery journey upon retirement to understand and realize there was a woman within this male shell.  So I have checked the boxes for engineering, sales/marketing and retired.

      My main work has been in admin in various offices.  But I’ve also worked in education (Library) and retail (working on the till counter and restocking goods).

      Sadly, like a lot of people of my age, my skills are now longer needed.  I mostly work in the voluntary sector, which apart from my travel expenses, my work is unpaid.

My first three trips, were Paris, Athens and Rome (my 24th birthday) and after that a three week trip to Pattaya in Thailand to bring United Nations personnel out of Cambodia (they had been monitoring elections.

          I’ve sat on a stool with a sign pointing to a sports shop, saturdays in a hairdresser, motorcycle courier and then base controller for same company, electricians labourer. One year with a cabinet maker, window restoration, and when I first came here to the USA painter. That was ’93. Used to do an apt for $400, a house $700.  Crazy life.

      Retired in 2012.

      Now, I’d like to retire from my retirement so I can devote more time to crossdressing! Being retired is just too much like work!

      IT. Specifically Programming for Custom Systems.  If it needs programming, I’ve probably touched it or something like it over the years.

      Retired for 15 years, but spent the previous nigh on four decades in a small manufacturing/exporting company that became a world leader in the products we made.

      They were/are a very low cost/high volume type of product, which naturally led to lots of copies. But we always beat the “cheep and cheerfuls” with product quality and great (personal) service.

      My many weeks away from home were a key to this and also allowed me lots of Caty time in my hotel rooms etc. The same weeks away eventually led to me getting sick of the travel and that led to selling out and retirement.
