Another Halloween has came and gone…almost. I have seen a few places around here in Cincinnati which are having theme parties this weekend which are loosely Halloween based. After all, some people I know would want Halloween celebrated year around.
One of those is the “moderator” who I have mentioned extensively here in Cyrsti’s Condo. She is the one who got bounced from the board (and all her activities as social director) of the established cross dresser-transgender support group I am a member of. I am rather proud of the fact I have taken the high road in the whole affair. In fact, at Monday’s meeting, I was prodded to give my true feelings on the subject. But just shut up.
Since, to my knowledge, none of them read my blog, I can do it here. I really only have a couple problems with the “moderator”. I think she is and has been a little frenetic in the way she approached having “socials.” Her invitations began to take on the idea of when you went out, you were going to meet her. Leaving the “group” idea out. In other words, the socials became Stacey’s and not Crossport (the group.) I think in her mind though, she was simply going out and inviting anyone else to join her.
On a bigger stage, I think her biggest problems came with her attitude concerning transgender safety as a whole. Since she hadn’t had much of a problem with going public with her transition, she figured society had changed and no one else should have a problem either. While times have changed, we all know they haven’t changed that much. I think she was ignoring the people in the group going through heart wrenching times with spouses and family.
Finally, I think her total willingness to to throw caution to the wind and give out her personal phone number to anyone who wanted it was ill advised.
Going full circle back back to Halloween, Liz and I actually went to two themed events, so life was good. My costume was simple, I dressed as a witch. Complete with long flowing skirt and spider accessorized witches hat. My goal was simple, to be viewed as a woman dressed up in a simple costume.
Plus the actual Halloween evening was so nasty weather wise, there weren’t even very many Trick or Treaters.
I do hope where ever you are, you accomplished all your Halloween dreams!
