TG Caption - Getting Through the Day

  1. A little sad, and very poignant, but very well done.

    1. Yeah - I was in a bit of a weird mood when I wrote it. I don't know why, but for some reason, I was thinking about an interview with a model I saw a while back. I can't remember which one it was (though it was a famous one), but she was an absolute mess of self-consciousness. It was a really raw interview because she seemed really vulnerable about the expectation that she be "perfect" all the time. While it's not exactly like the caption I wrote, it did inspire it because it makes me remember that beautiful people are still people - with all the problems and insecurities that fact implies. So, in my mind, that idea flowed into the notion that even the most passable transgender woman can still have moments of self-consciousness about her gender, especially given the all-too-common bigotry prevalent in most of these women's lives. A bit heavy for porn, I know, but that's where my mind was.
