In a moment of sheer madness, caused by the urgent need to change the subject and knowing that this could only be done with something sensational, I heard myself announcing that I had a collection of famous breasts on my phone. As the tumbleweed blew around the room in the ensuing stunned silence, I realised that this was one of those moments when the idea should have been thought through and rejected as a plan.
I first blogged this in February 2014. I am reblogging it now as I want everything about me in the same place. I realise that my Tumblr account has become almost exclusively “likes” and “rebloggs.” This actually follows on from my first post on here which you can find here: https://charlotte-j.co.uk/2014/04/07/2/ Seven years ago myContinue reading “On Fancying Men”
This is a powerful and wonderful article by Zoe Williams. In it she explains why she has been wrong in not writing about trans issues for 10 years and argues that the feminist, climate and trans campaigns should be about acceptance and inclusivity.
I wrote this to my wife by email when she opened a letter to me, from the hospital, inviting me to Speech and Language Therapy. I was 600 miles away at the time…..

I have come away from the LGBT Youth Scotland Reception at the Scottish Parliament feeling really upbeat.

While I was waiting I went to watch the Scottish Parliament sitting. Way more efficient than Westminster. The electronic voting system meant that theyContinue reading “LGBT Youth Scotland”
This is the first blog in which I have managed to write more than a few posts. I love the idea of a blog in the same way that I loved the idea of writing a diary when I was a teenager. My room was littered with notebooks with, at most, two entries and IContinue reading “The Ether”
I have my next meeting at the Gender Identity Clinic on Thursday! Yeah, gulp. How does that make me feel? Anxious, divided, undecided, excited, shaky, positive, disloyal, over joyed, frustrated, negative, …… You get the picture! But surely this should be a good thing. This is what I have been looking forward to, working towards,Continue reading “To Be or Not To Be (Me), that is the (toilet) question!”
I shaved my legs this morning! To be honest I have let myself go since going back to work so there was a lot of tidying up to do. The downside of this is that it can take some time, though I was in a friends lovely shower so it was no hardship. The upsideContinue reading “Travel Tights”
