Sissy Reed Barrow “My Life as a Sissy Transvestite”
I Love my Life as a Sissy Baby Transvestite
What”s really important to me more than anything is that everyone knows I’m a Sissy Transvestite and I want to live full time as a Little Sissy Girl, my real name is Reed Barrow but I prefer to be called Sissy and I live in REDACTED. If you already know me please don”t feel uncomfortable to ask me anything you like, I want my friends to know the real me and I want to keep you as my friend so please understand that I just want to be honest with everyone and myself.
I guess a lot of people will think the worst but they will also never understand that people have there own lives and in general everyone wants to be different I think ?
I’ve been a Sissy Transvestite since I was born and why would I want to change who I really am. I can’t imagine being born without this wonderful gift, I cherish my life in lace and frills and I adore wearing Real Baby Diaper’s like Pampers. Huggies and Luv”s and Nursery Print Plastic Diaper Pants. Even though I’m a Sissy Baby Transvestite I can still think for myself and lead my everyday life, I don’t need a Supreme Bing to give my life meaning nor do I need to follow most of the public in worship ( unless is to a Dominate Supreme Female ).
I really think it’s such a travesty that most people are raised with hatred and bigotry of people and races of which they are not involved or associated with. We as Sissies are the kindest and sweetest people anyone could ever meet. Even so I will always live my life as a Sissy Baby Transvestite and take solace in knowing that I truly am a wonderful and special person. If you know a Sissy or ever meet a Sissy try and bring yourself to experiencing all life’s wonders and you may find that new and very special close personal friend in life. It takes more Courage to be a Sissy than to be a Macho Dork.
I hope you”ll want to know more about me so I”ve listed a number of websites with many more photo”s and much more information about me and my life as a Sissy Baby Transvestite. I”m hoping to one day very soon throw all my icky male clothing away and wear Baby Diaper”s and my very pretty Sissy Dresses only for the rest of my life. And finally be the little Sissy Girl Transvestite I was meant to be forever.
Back in the day,
When we were young and
Full of hope,
When women had their places
To dream and plan
A future for their daughters,
Where women could love women
And not be defined by tv, fashion mags
We were so innocent then,
We thought that we
Could fix it all with talk.
Still we talk,
Still our lives and sex
And safety stolen from us.
Cis’d and dismissed.

An Examination of Strategies to Obtain Legislation that Prohibits Discrimination Based on Gender Identity in the State of Maryland
The purpose of this paper is to explore the ways in which civil rights advocates in Maryland may win the fight to obtain protections against discrimination based on gender identity. For the purposes of this paper, we assume that we must advocate for civil rights laws inclusive of gender identity, but that we must be strategic in the way we accomplish this goal. In the words of one Maryland delegate, “(I)t needs to be covered – the question is how do we do it.”1
For the purposes of this paper, the term gender identity2 will be used to include transsexualism and transgendered identity. Transsexualism has been defined as “the desire to change one’s anatomic sexual characteristics to conform physically with one’s perception of self as a member of the opposite sex.”3 Transsexualism is officially a specific form of a broader psychiatric disorder termed gender identity disorder.4 Transgendered identity refers to having a self-image, expression, or identity not traditionally associated with one’s sex at birth or being perceived in this way.

London Radical Feminist Conference, July 2012
Statement from organisers
This July saw radical feminists from across the globe converge in London for the first women-only, radical feminist conference in 25 years.
What happened was important, urgent and necessary. Women of all ages and from many different backgrounds connected, discussed and organised, and the result was truly electrifying.
The agenda of the conference was shaped by some of the most significant issues affecting women today, with a particular focus on male violence against women and girls in all its forms.
Keynote speakers were Professor Sheila Jeffreys and Gail Dines. Panel sessions and workshops addressed topics including male violence against women and girls; prostitution; disability and women’s oppression; lesbian feminism, women-only organising and feminist culture; sharing knowledge across feminist generations; and challenging misogyny, along with several sessions focusing on organising. Some of the speeches may become available at a later time.
The organisers would like to thank all the speakers, panelists, chairs, facilitators, volunteers and delegates for making the event so incredibly vibrant and energising. We also thank all those who helped and supported the conference from a distance.
We believe that this conference, along with others taking place around the world, heralds the mobilisation of a new era of radical feminist activism. In the face of the ongoing economic, political, social and cultural oppression of women, and relentless male violence and misogyny, such mobilisation is essential and urgently needed.
We look forward to more.
I grew up in the Age of the Closet. While I came out in college to some close friends, I was aware that perceptions of my identity needed to be carefully managed, if I was to have the career I sought. There must be no public declaration—and no open defense of the rights of “perverts.” To be sure, my contemporaries in the newly-formed Mattachine Society did just that, but some prudently hid under assumed names. Most of the leaders of Mattachine found that, except for the most menial posts, gainful employment was closed to them; the lucky ones were supported by their partners.
In 1969, with Stonewall, the gay and lesbian movement (not then styled LGBTQ) went into high gear. Because of the Vietnam War, the left was dominant then in ways that are hard to imagine now. And the left, especially the far left, has a long history of suppressing opinion not deemed “progressive.” “No free speech for fascists!” the Communist Party USA proclaimed. And their definition of fascist was a broad one. Some thought that I fit it. When I became active in the movement I learned that it was simply taboo to criticise certain causes, including radical feminism and Third World advocacy (what morphed into multiculturalism).

What I would say to a trans*sister, whoever you are:
I first went to MichFest in 2002, and it was wonderful and amazing. When I left, my feet stood on the earth more solidly, and my gaze was level.
When I first heard about various trans* conflicts on the Land, I stopped and thought about it. I felt that to be a woman born in a male body must be agony.
My own issues with femaleness had to do with how not to feel naked when I checked out at the grocery store and I had stare at the magazines with scantily clad women on *every* cover; how to deal with my menstrual cycles in high school when the boys in Social Studies made snide references to how the girls’ swim team left ‘blood in the pool;’ how to be heard in math class when, overnight at 13, I went from the smart kid to practically invisible; how to travel on a plane or bus without being accosted by some dude who claimed the right to monopolize my attention and energy; and countless other daily challenges.
Much has been written over the last 15 years regarding the issue Transgender inclusion within the Gay and Lesbian Movement. The argument for inclusion originates in the notion that we are all Queer, that we are all read by the larger heteronormative society as Queer, regardless of how our own identification varies on this theme.
In the last few years, however, the tenor of this discussion has changed, with Transgender people asserting different needs – and different goals – for their Community.
