On a legal scale, I can see why that'd be confusing. The seperation of sex and gender is a mental thing, and it'd be hard to have it implemented into terms for legal stuff. Sadly, it'll probably be a long time before it's full recongnized legally.

If you want to change your gender, just fill out some forms for legal reasons and start putting your gender down as whatever you want (male, female, fa'afafine, etc.). Having your sex changed, however, would require going through SRS and legally changing it that way.

Would definitely be the end of the world as we know it, and the start of something much, much better.
Well put into those kind of terms it is very simple, however working with it on a legal level is more difficult (Everything is a bit more difficult legally). Although Gender is a social identity, it's hard to get the government to label social identities and how they would go about other terms that would otherwise be related to a birth male/female. Basically, it should be that simple, but because of how the system works it's a tad more complicated and takes more time. Bah, I'm probably not making any sense anyhow.
Nah, I get what you mean. Government has to have 3 layers to everything to make sure they don't step on ANYONE's toes. Because oh no you might hurt someone's feelings or beliefs!!! (ps grow up government)

The Mayans were before Caeser, who implemented leap-years.
That's more politics then it is government (Which is somewhat seperate, atleast in my opinion). It would really just depend on where you go to be honest, in some places you might see things like separation of sex and gender as common knowledge, in other places such speak will get you ran out of town (South) As far as old people being in charge, I'm waiting for the baby boomer generation to start to really kick the bucket (Which should start around 2030 or so, give or take a decade) Not that I'm excited for people to die, but once they start dying off I'm curious to see if that would deliver some significant change.
fun fact: if your gender presented doesn't match your legal sex/gender on your identification, it's technically against the law to be allowed on an airplane in Canada. And yeah, changing legal gender requires SRS across the country last I checked. probably not going to change in the near future either, even if the NDP make government next election

[QUOTE=ForgottenKane;35142897]Sounds like it would hurt like hell.[/QUOTE] Looks like only getting off the initial hairs. Just getting the regrowth sounds a lot easier.
[QUOTE=ForgottenKane;35142897]Sounds like it would hurt like hell.[/QUOTE] It does for the first ~5 times. Afterwards, it just makes things a lot easier. Makes ingrown hairs more frequent, however.
[QUOTE=Rammlied;35142857]On another forum I frequent a girl mentioned this; [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilator[/url] I want this so bad :v would makes my life so much easier[/QUOTE] I have one. It's slower than shaving, but it rips the hair right out of the follicle and leaves your skins sooo smooth for a lot longer. Totally worth the pain.
I haven't been able to remove my hair in any way. Keep on asking my mom to get me hair removal products but she just keeps on getting my brother and sister stuff.

maybe because I can't stand pain, but I blacked out when I used those. Annika said something about me being low in my estrogen cycle but I'm never trying those again. Shaving is better than epilap I agree with forks.
I recently came out to my best friend about being transgender and she took it better then I ever could have hoped. We've talked about it a lot and shes actually excited about the whole thing, saying that I've always felt like more of a girlfriend to her and how we could share clothes and just do girly things together. This whole week I've been much happier then I've been in a long time. I'm going to come out to my sister soon, who I'm sure will be very understanding and with her help we'll tell my parents and hopefully can see about starting hormones. I'm a little nervous about the thought of hormones though, I don't have any doubt in my mind that they're what I want, but with school I'm not sure how I'm going to get the courage to start living as a girl full time without fully looking like one, not to mention having the entire school know about it, but I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
Congrats!
Holy fuck I hate hair so much.
