Penny's Story

A cute little drummer living her dream.

This is exactly the bullshit I’m talking about…

So, I figured I’d post a very brief IM log. I “hide” on MySpace IM. I only have the MySpace messenger to get the real-time updates on my emails and comments. I hate chatting online; I think it’s a really horrible way to communicate.

This dude thought I was attractive enough to IM me even though I would have appeared to be offline (on chat). I’m not as pissed or annoyed or hurt as I would have been just a few days ago about this exchange. I have mixed feelings at this point. I’m feeling much better about my attractiveness and desireability – just as I am; but it’s still kind of weird when a guy IM’s me out of the blue without taking the ten seconds to read enough of my profile to discover that I’m transgender.

Anyway, here’s a very typical example of what I deal with:

pete0236:  (07/14/2008 11:11 PM): hi
pete0236 is online 07/14/2008 11:11 PM:
“I am online”

Picky Penelope: hello

pete0236: hi there how are you tonight

Picky Penelope: fine, how are you?

pete0236: im good thank you
pete0236: your profile caught my eye so i thought id drop a line

Picky Penelope: thanks
Picky Penelope: what part caught your eye?

pete0236: to be honest your picture

Picky Penelope: always is   lol
pete0236: your very attractiuve
pete0236: attractive*

Picky Penelope: thanks

pete0236: i can send a few pics if youd like

Picky Penelope: did you read any of my profile?

Messages will be delivered next time the user logs on


And he was gone. It’s gotten to the point that when a random guy emails me or IMs me, I get to the “Hey, non-reading jerk, I’M A TRANSSEXUAL” as quickly as possible. It saves both of us lots of time.

I’m almost taking an evil pleasure in messing with these guys heads. That guy has to spend tonight thinking about how he thought a transsexual was actually “very attractive.” Imagine that.
