Most trans women have a special relationship with mirrors, just as we do with cameras, a we constantly check our appearance, This not simple vanity, it s much more complex than that. Just like the Wizard's wife we are seeking many things from our mirrors. Certainly we have the same problems as any other woman checking that our hair is in the right place and that our lipstick is restricted to our lips, but we are also looking for affirmation.

I will admit to having checked myself out in a shop as I walk past, and I have certainly caught other girls doing the same. Maybe it will be a milestone in my transition when I no longer have that subconscious need.
