TV Alert - Lost In Transition
« on: May 20, 2018, 06:49:52 AM »
There is a show on TLC titled "Lost In Transition" at 10:00 PM Sunday night. It is about wives dealing with husbands who want to live as women. There are two more shows scheduled for the next two weeks.

Thanks. For those who don't have cable or TLC, I'm sure we'll eventually have the series available somewhere, somehow.

In the meantime, here's a preview clip of it:
http://buffalobetties.com/media/lost.mp4

I've been getting a little feedback in my messaging & mail that I haven't been running any shows or movies in a while & that I'm slacking off.

Look closer! We're currently running almost all of the Academy award nominees, UK Academy nominees, Golden Globe nominees, Saturn Award nominees, & almost all the popular crossdressing-related movies. We're also running countless TV show series.

Slacking off? What other sissy sites are running over 100 movies, dozens of crossdressing movies or shows, hundreds of other TV shows, dozens of crossdressing clips, have 2 youtube channels, plus several online music channels? NONE! AND they're all FREE!

If you start watching or listening them now, taking only enough time to sleep, it would take you almost a year to watch or hear them all!

If I just loaded you kids up with 50-75 movies after the new year, it does not mean I'm slacking off if I won't give you 20-50 more every month. I'm not netflix, hulu, or your cable company, but am a decent FREE substitute.

Well I just watched the first episode and there were bits and pieces that I thought I was living my own life. The apprehensive but understanding wife. The wife that said she couldn't never be a lesbian. The wife who let her friend do her thinking and reasoning. The wife who was very scared about being a laughing stock.

There were so many things. The thing I did see was the wives did try to put everything into perspective. My wife ended up rejecting me completely and divorced me. She accused me of being gay and even made a statement that she didn't want to catch some kind of disease from me.

By the time I got my head screwed on straight, I was divorced, unemployed, and attempted living as a women for a year. I soon found out that at age 56 I was not financially nor socially able to continue as a female. When I say "socially able" from my side I was OK but people were very discriminating and even cruel. It was next to impossible to find any kind of job to survive. So at age 60 I finally realized my life as a woman was to be no more.

I'm 73 now and as I look back I would have done things a lot different.

Hi Francene, it is sad for us that this Gender revolution did not happen early in our lives and acceptance is better than it was. I have had those feelings since I was a young boy of about four and got so much negative flack for it even from my family doctor. Perhaps because he was a family friend but I just wanted some help to understand what I was going through. At 69 years of age I, like you have come to the conclusion that I could not live as Angela in the real world and family and friends would not understand or accept me that way. It breaks my heart but is the only solution to living a peaceful life in my retirement. At least I have my dress up days and the stories on the computer to live vicariously in those moments. In my late teens I discovered the Gay Village in Toronto while working there. I could have gravitated towards the Drag lifestyle just to dress up as the real me in public but that never happened and I went home to small town Ontario where I knew I would not be accepted and started to get on with my life. Oh if things could have been different who knows where life would have taken us.

Yeah if things were more accepting, I probably would have lived most my adult life dressed as a woman. But I'm not transexual, I'm tranvestite. I just like looking & dressing like a girl, but don't feel I'm actually am one inside. It's like a gay male doesn't want to be a woman, or feel like one just because he's attracted to men.

But there will probably never be total acceptance of us among much of the population. Being too different or unusual just isn't acceptable to a lot of people. You can still get bullied in school just for being too small, too smart, handicapped, too stupid, too fat, or too poor. Those attitudes don't change much when many of those kids grow up.

Even within the gay community long ago & today, we don't get the dignity or respect they give gay men or women. Jobs in the gay community, even in gay bars, the crossdressers are never offered as high a position or pay as everyone else.

Sexually among gays, we are viewed as people who want or need to get fucked all the time. Even in the most liberal straight communities, crossdressers are veiwed as gay. Ironically, most male crossdressers are really straight & attracted to women, not men.

But if I could go back in time & change anything, what could I have possibly do that would make anything better without making something else worse or too different?

Think of the domino effect. Change one little thing or event, & you change at lot of stuff related to it.

By being the "black sheep" liberal in the family, I helped & inspired many in my family & friends to be a little better, happier, & freer. They grew to treat others better too.

Joining the gay liberation groups of the day, also placed me in suicide prevention duty. How many people wouldn't be around anymore or as free without us, if my life was different & I wasn't there at that time?

Not being the acceptable "macho" guy, the job market for what I knew how to do was more limited. I took on work in the "underdog" companies or smaller nightclubs. This gave me more opportunities & freedom to do more stuff, including design, invent, & build stuff.

Back when AIDs first turned up, at first hardly anybody knew about it or what it was. It didn't even have a name yet. I only knew that it was a sexually transmitted disease that there is no cure for, & is fatal. I spread the word about it over the mike in the nightclubs, their bulletin boards, newsletters, the gay newspapers, & organizations. How many lives did that save?

Even after it got the name "AIDs" we continued to spread information about it, & promote safe sex. Sadly, a huge amount of active gays ignored the warning, or felt they were young & invincible, so simply wouldn't catch it. Others thought it was just a NYC or California disease so would never catch it here locally. But that was a time when many were catching it here, but remained silent about it, or didn't know they caught it. It was only when it was too late, when we were surrounded by many in the final stages of the disease, slowly & miserably dieing, that did they realize that AIDs was everywhere in the gay community, & they were most likely infected.

I literally saw hundreds of people I personally knew slowly & miserably die. But so many more did survive because they did pay attention to us & our work. If I changed anything in the past, would it had affected what I did to the point that lives would have been lost? Or in another life, would I would have wound up misinformed, or careless, & caught the disease?

Being trans, small, & not macho, made me more withdrawn, & a bookworm before the days of computers. I spent countless days in the libraries reading & researching. If things were different, would my education have suffered? I've seen some family members & friends fall victim to drug & alcohol abuse. If things were different, maybe I could have been one of them. Drugs & alcohol was everywhere, easily obtained, & cheap.

I've met so many wonderful people & learned so many things that I might not have ever known if I wasn't in the right place at the right time. Would I even have had the same pets that I loved so dearly & gave a happy full life to? Changing just one thing one day, puts you in a different place another day. Who's to say that just changing one thing in your past doesn't eventually make things worse instead of better?

Some of us are at our best, & do our best when we're not given a perfect life, or don't get whatever we want.

We don't get chocolate cake every time we want it, when we want it. And we're probably better off -- a better person because of it. That's how life is for everybody, not just us. Dealing with it makes us better. Whatever don't kill you makes you stronger.

I've frequently reflected on my past, wondering what if things were different... if I turned right instead of left. Especially with a few recent "near death" experiences, wondering where I made the "wrong turn". What choices that I could lived with, would have made things better?

I think for almost all basically good people there is no "wrong turn". No matter which way we turn will be the right turn. Either direction will have different joys, consequences, & difficult scenarios. Neither will be better.

Enjoy the trees, birds, stream, & flowers taking the wrong turn down the long hard road. Take the right turn on the fast easy paved short road, & you'll miss all of that, might crash, or get mugged along the way.

I've posted the first 2 episodes of the show for those who don't have cable, the cable channel, or have limited bandwidth/speed to watch it from common online sources. As always, our media takes far less bandwidth than any other sources if you have data limits, & you never need a fast connection.

Episode 1
DVD quality, 103mb, 48 minutes.

Episode 2
SVCD quality, 113mb, 85 minutes.

They're in our members viewing area, in the movies section in the "Trans movies & specials" thread there.

If you are not a member here you will not see it, you must join to use our private viewing area. Being a member of Stories does not make you a member here, they're separate & independent sites.

As instructed when you join (Did you read the instuctions?), you may receive a confirmation/anti-spam email from us to click on to activate your membership. Check your mail for it. Some mail servers will automatically put mail from small or unknown web domains & servers into your spam or trash folder, so check them for your confirmation letter too. If you don't activate your membership through the confirmation mail in 7 days, your account will be deleted.

Because the confirmation procedure is an automated anti-spam measure, no temporary mail addresses, mail servers typically used by spammers or hackers, or registering through a proxy or ISP commonly used by spammers & hackers will be accepted. You must use a regular email address & normal isp to register. This is one way how we identify you from the monsters out there. The bad guys use bad mail servers, ISPs, & proxies.

An rare occasions, I may recognize the user, address, & their ISP as someone I know from here, our other sites, or other related sites, & activate the account personally instead. So if you're active at our other sites or related sites, & I know it, you may not get a confirmation letter, because the account was already activated by me.
