Transsexuals have a yearning to live life to the fullest. This is the reason they are “reborn” when they get sex reassignment surgery. However, when they get a new lease on life thanks to the transsexual surgery, many transgender women are faced with the challenge of how to be a feminine. Women have a deeply ingrained need to look elegant and fashionable. There is a lot that goes into making a woman look stylish. For example, men often find a woman’s handbag to be a puzzling conundrum due to the variety of items that are found inside. Though clothes, accessories, and cosmetics cannot be ruled out as contributing to femininity, the following three points play a pivotal role in a woman’s life.
As mentioned above, femininity is more than what one wears or puts on their face. Femininity stems from how one carries their body. Words that aptly and precisely capture femininity would be, “your body makes you feel sexy, your face makes you pretty, your smile makes you gorgeous, but it’s your mind that ices the cake by making you beautiful!” Therefore, it would suffice to say that no amount of money in this world could buy femininity because it is largely a disposition.
Some transgender women are at times reduced to employing “femininity coaches” so as to improve their femininity. However, while the hardest task for being a female is this aspect of understanding femininity, it must to be shouldered by the Transgender Woman, regardless of the cost of hiring a coach.
Your movement and voice
Women do not walk or move slovenly; there is grace in their movements. Transgender women have to abide by such decorous body movement so as to stay in touch with their feminine side. As a transgender woman, if you do not want people to stare at you every time you saunter into a room, then you have to buckle down and train your body movements to mirror those of a female. At times, women don’t walk; they gracefully slide. Women don’t take a seat by dropping into a chair; they gently sit down. Women don’t sit down with their legs apart; the legs have to be neatly closed together.
When it comes to the voice, it has to be gentle like a falling feather. You can read magazines and watch videos like ‘Develop a Female Voice’ by Melanie Ann Phillips. You can also practice how to speak like a woman with a friend who is honest and unbiased. Whilst training how to speak and move like a woman, learn to constantly smile because it brings out your feminine side.
What you carry in a handbag
Transgender women find themselves carrying handbags, something that was probably foreign to them initially. Some examples of things that are a “must” in a woman’s handbag include the following: hand sanitizer, feminine hygiene products (tampons), deodorant, a compact mirror, lip products, cash, safety pins, a notebook and a pen.
