First of all, I need to send out an apology to all of you who have commented on previous posts here in Cyrsti’s Condo. My excuse is, for once I have been busy in my everyday life with Doctor’s appointments, completing taxes and other fun filled things to do.
So, I am going to try to get to a few comments, including the one featuring WWE wrestler Tyler Reks coming out as transgender.
The first comment comes from “Sara”:
“Tyler Reks as I remember was not a big name wrestler and these guys have dreams of making it big, but all too soon fade away… So I was quite surprised to hear you mention this! I checked his bio and sure enough the 1st sentence mentions her female name and pronouns! unfortunately it also mentions her “dead name” because wrestling ring names are often an attention getting stage name, there are only a few that actually use their real name It’s not that I doubted what you reported, but it just sounded too good to be true!”
Thanks for checking Sara. I do the best I can to check sources but most of the time it is very difficult.
The next comment from “Connie”:
“How does one wrestle in a wig and wearing silicone breast forms? I have enough trouble just doing yard work; bending over, lifting, and perspiring. More than once, I’ve had to grab my wig as it’s been snagged on a limb, not to mention a breast form that slipped out of my bra because it had gotten so slippery from sweat.
John Lithgow played the part of an ex-NFL tight end who was transitioning mtf in “The World According to Garp.” His portrayal was, at that time, far from the weirdest thing in that movie. I would hope that it wouldn’t seem to be weird, at all, these days.
Who knows, maybe Tom has a desire to be Marsha Brady. He’s tried to deflate his balls, anyway. :-)”
For those of you who don’t remember, NFL QB Tom Brady was once accused of using deflated footballs to get a better grip and cheated in the process.
As far as having my breasts slip out of their bra, I still have that sensation every now and then even though my breasts are now attached to my body through the miracle of hormone replacement therapy.
Also, in the past when I wore wigs, I had the misfortune one night when I ran out of gas and was walking home to have a low hanging tree snag my wig.
Finally, I am sure if Gabbi Tuft tries to continue to wrestle, she will soon learn how sensitive the breast area becomes and will have to perhaps learn from other women wrestlers how to protect herself. Could be the least of her problems!
I really appreciate all of your comments!
