Can we get some long term mtfs?
I notice most mtfs focus more on the young lives of women, or other mtfs.

Some asian men have really pronounced bone structures. Korean men in particular often have large heads.
My only worry is that this is a different generation of trans people.
Where SRS use to be the bees knees, its looked down upon or avoided mostly today for most trans.
Though I do agree if you're going to transition now of all times would be
Caroline Cossey, (Tula) Model and actress from '70s and '80s.
Leslie Townsend, glamour model, and highly paid escort when young.
Brazilian fashion model
Wendy Carlos, 76 now.
Composer and synthesizer musician.
Famous for Switched On Bach which was the first gold classical album, and received a Grammy for it. Also scored the music for a few movies including A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Walt Disney's Tron.
Denied it for ages, but the evidence was found.
Outed in 1961, born in 1935.
Estelle Asmodelle, 51yo
Australian model, belly dancer, musician, activist, inventor, abstract artist and academic.
I remember meeting an older trans woman that worked as a therapist when I was hospitalized for severe depression and GID. The staff would refer to her with male pronouns when she wasn't around and I saw her walk into the men's restroom. Was pretty surreal. I think the RN that worked there was trans too cause she had the kind of breathy boyish voice that a lot of trans women have along with a prominent brow and adam's apple.
I think its good to know there are older, passable trans women with decent normal jobs as opposed to the stereotypical sex worker or fashion model.
There is a set of pages that Lynn Conway
put together on successful transwomen and transmen.
The transwomen's page always bugged me because it includes shitty IT techs just for having SRS, but she removed the woman who got trans rights passed in Spain (among other important trans women) because she hadn't had the op. Even Conway is meh about her old site.
The trajectory of my own life was likely altered by the controversy around the outing of Tula after she was a Bond girl. It isn't well known, but she had a playboy photoshoot done and ready for pub just before she was outed. It was never run due to the outing. If the News of the World had waited just a few months, then we'd have had a transwoman playboy playmate of the month back in late '81 or early '82. She did do a later pictorial in '91 as a transsexual, but it wasn't for playmate of the month.
I don't think Conway's pages were only for showing great successes, but instead for showing everyday successful transsexuals.
Wow it's almost like people are ugly if you stretch features to a point where they don't look anything like they do
Yeah but the lack of great successes towards showing only a certain kind of small success leads to it skewing, idk, I don't want to say honly but it does skew towards older postop transitioners.
