Target to spend $20 million to convert all bathrooms to single stalls restrooms

Don't know how I feel about this.  Is this segregation, or is this Target ending any arguments someone might have about the transgender community using restrooms?  Either way it seems to be a ploy to repair the lost sales they've suffered recently since supporting the community, so I get it.  At the end of the day, they are a business.

Drag queen LYFT driver

I LOVE this.  Not only because it's putting drag into the world, but using drag to make a service fun (and she's super cute in that taxi outfit).  Also, who wouldn't love to do drag part time, make money, and put yourself out in the public doing so (IE have an excuse for dressing up in public)

Also look at the before / after, quite a transformation (looks better as a girl)

french manicure while asleep prank

I like this.. I only wish she had been able to get both hands, and did a better job of gluing.  He pulls 2 off right away, but the other 3 are stuck on pretty well and he proceeds to pry them off and likely do nail damage.  She could have told him to stop and promise to help him by soaking them.

crossdressers need speed and easy reversability

I would normally post this on my other blog:

But since I have more eyeballs here (and hopefully a larger crossdress audience), I figured I'd post here.  So obviously one of the things we struggle with is time, the other is making sure whatever we do is easily removed, especially if it's a week night.  So the first item:
1. speed: I've been watching a lot of makeup videos lately.  I'll admit I'm not that experienced with makeup, I'm sure many women aren't so great with it either.  I'm trying to break it down to the bare essentials and keep it as simple as possible.  If you ever watch ru paul's drag race, or really any drag tutorial on youtube, if they are experienced they can rush a decent makeup job under 10 minutes.  I think if you plan it out, and have practice under your belt, that's completely achievable with a decent look.  I try to keep it in this order:
1. concealer under eyes

2. Layer of foundation

3.  Powder (don't remember brand, but it's natural)

4. Now I go to eyes, starting with eyeshadow (s), then I do eyeliner and mascara.  I highly reccommend getting a liquid liner instead of a pencil.  It applies much smoother and easier:

Then if I'm feeling adventurous, I'll apply false lashes.  I think out of everything, this can make or break a feminine look.  I order the lashes off ebay.  ironically, the cheapies from china (10 for $10) sometimes work better because they are stiffer and don't flex the wrong way.  I use this to apply:

One new thing I'm experimenting with is eyebrow pencil.  I'm not shaving off my eyebrows completely off obviously, but I do trim it back so there's a sharp break between hair and skin instead of the usual fade most of us have.  I'm also filling in the gaps with a pencil to make it more full, and I have to say it does make a difference.  The eyebrows really pop, especially with facial movements.

As far as reversibility, I reccomend a good makeup remover that's easy on your skin:


Now here's the ultimate tip for both speed and reversibility that I'm EXCITED about, it's false nails.  So you basically have 2 options:

1. Use strong glue to attach them.  Works good if you do it right, but obviously taking them off isn't so easy (and often kills the nail in the process).  Even with soaking each finger in acetone for 5 minutes it can kill the fake nail (and leave your own looking pretty cruddy afterwards).

2. You buy pre-adhesive nails (easily reversible, but adhesion usually sucks).  The only somewhat exception are KISS brand nails (they will lose adhesion a bit if you decide to do dishes).  There are separate tab packets, but they seem overpriced and based on reviews they don't seem to work very well.  Now as many will tell you, a prepped nail surface is key.  That means lightly sanding down the surface, and then cleaning the surface with some alcohol.  It's also recommended you don't touch the adhesive as the oils from your fingers will affect adhesion.

Now while KISS nails work well, and they are fairly reasonable ($7 typically on amazon prime) you ARE somewhat limited in styles.  french manicures all day long, red nails.. But what if you want something cute like multicolored?  Perhaps you found some cute hand painted nails that look like watermelons?  Remember those tabs, the ones that don't seem to work.  Well I have the solution, and it will actually save you money in the long run (both in the nails themselves and the adhesive).

So first off, KISS nail packets, $7.  If you buy just plain nails (prepainted) on ebay, they can be had for a little as a dollar or two (especially if you buy quantities).  The pads are usually like $6 for 20, or about $1.50 per hand (more if you mess some up).  I have something that works better, and will only cost you about $.17 per hand!  I present to you, the ultimate in adhesion.. It's 3M 9474LE super strong adhesion tape.  This is the stuff the automotive industry uses to attach emblems to the back of cars so you know it's strong (but WILL come off).  On amazon you can buy a 2" x 36" strip (free shipping for prime members) for $8.

For each hand, you can cut off a 3/4" strip and then cut that strip into the widths of your fingernails (cutting chamfers on the corners so it mostly fits the nail).  If you want to be anal, I'm sure you could painstakingly cut fingernails shapes but I'm looking for speed here.  It should look like this:
When taking off the other paper, you may have to use an x-acto knife to make sure you don't remove the adhesive back off the nail (it's slightly thicker than your typical nail adhesive).  It'll look shinier too:

Here's the results..  They are just as strong as KISS nails, and now I'm not restricted to only buying those now.  In fact I've had these nails on my fingers the entire time while typing all of this, and nothing has popped off.

Genetic engineering - CRISPR

I've brought up the subject of DNA editing before.  Our gender is defined by chromosomes, which are made up of thousands of DNA strands.  If you can make genetic modifications on the DNA level, I see no reason why you couldn't modify your "genes" to be the opposite gender and in effect give yourself a gender change on the DNA level.  Now that's not to say you'll suddenly have the opposite genitals (even hormones won't change that), but imagine flipping a switch and having your body produce natural hormones of the gender you choose?  Also from a medical / forensics point of view (and perhaps a social point of view), you would in effect be transformed into a CISgender (at least medically).

So the buzzword (CRISPR) came up recently, and it's making news because it's changing the speed and cost at which we can experiment with DNA altering.  So much so that the cost has shrunk by 99%, and the time is sped up from a year down to a few weeks.  They make a good comparison to how the first computers (early DNA editing) were really slow, complicated, and expensive.  As time went on, computers got faster, cheaper, and more readily available to the general public.  This also happened at an exponential rate (processing power still doubles about every 18 months).  So when you consider this jump in efficiency, you have to wonder how quickly we'll see benefits from this.  They bring up the point of completely eradicating diseases, possibly slow down or stopping aging, perhaps even reversing aging.  They also bring up designer babies, where in effect you could pick out traits and have a beautiful kid.  Of course gender changes aren't mentioned, but it's only a matter of time before someone decodes the DNA strand, finds out which ones determine gender, and experiment on a human subject to see if it flips the gender switch.

Female POV porn

I knew it existed, never really found anything good until I switched search engines.  There's at least 6 good compilations on pornhub, starting with this one:

If you scroll down, there's links to other related videos that will take you to the rest.  This is quite possibly the best porn I've ever watched.  Nothing like a clear visual to spark your imagination.  My only negative comment about them, it seems like the camera is perhaps mounted on top of their head, or forehead? (which is more noticeable depending on where they are looking)  If it was closer to the eyes it would make for a more believable experience.  Now we just need dual cameras so we can have female POV virtual porn
