Operation Gamer Girl

Last time I mentioned that I had devised a cunning plan around my desire to attend Gen Con 2014 as myself, as Ali.

Another Cunning PlanThis is not the first time I’ve had “a plan” concerning my transition. The last time I had “a plan” was when my therapist and I were discussing the possibility of my transitioning at work in a year. I took it so seriously, but the moment i realized the goal was probably unrealistic I became disappointed and abandoned it. This time, therefore, I think I’m going to have some fun with it. At the very least, it will liven the blog up a bit. Thus I officially announce …


I know it’s cheesy. But it’s the Internet; things need to be cheesy to catch attention. A cool graphic helps, too. [Not that mine is very cool. My GimpShop skills are weak.]

Operation Gamer Girl will be my motivation for the next year. I have a target and I aim to hit it! Instead of attending Gen Con like this:

Blackadder2Er, no, not quite. More like this:

blackadder3Well, you get the idea.

Anyway, this is a perfect opportunity for me to set and achieve some real goals regarding my transition. I want my attendance at Gen Con next year to be authentic, I want it to be normal, I want it to be just me and not some guise I put on. That means making a list, building a timeline, and then going for it.

Next time: Goal-setting!

[Apologies for the silliness of this post. I promise to be more serious tomorrow.]

  • You won’t remember your old self in a year. I’m not a big gamer, but if you read my blog, you’ll know I go to a local gamer group every few weeks and have never had a bad time.

    You can head to a con in eight weeks. Look how far you’ve come in a short time!

    • Gamers really do tend to be an openminded type. D&D gamers were usually the freaks and geeks in high school, so they know what it’s like to be different.
