Re: I am not a lady, and I am certainly not a princess!

I'm not a lesbian, or bi-sexual... But I'm not very girlie either. I don't know how to do hair or make-up. I don't wear skirts or dresses unless I'm forced too. I live in my jeans and shirts.

I won't feel like a princess, I don't relish the thought of wearing nice lingerie afterwards. I'm mostly just scared and a little excited to get my health back. I can't wait to get on the road to recovery.

Re: I am not a lady, and I am certainly not a princess!

Same here. I am a lesbian and I'm only 'princessy" in the most Xena-like manner. (Okay, that's a slight exaggeration... more like a Bookworm Butch.)

I agree that there have to be plenty of us on here.

Maybe we need a lesbian specific Q&A article in the archives. That could be useful.

Re: I am not a lady, and I am certainly not a princess!

I have never been a real feminine female either. I don't think sexual orientation matters when it comes to hysterectomy recovery. We're all women, and we will have or have had the same procedure. If you want to see yourself as a warrior princess, Cinderella, or no princess at all, it doesn't matter. What matters is that there is a lot of great info on this site. Ignore what doesn't help you - being called a princess- and focus on the good info and support. Take away what you need and leave the rest behind. If you want to know the reason for the terms like princess, it comes from years and years ago before this site existed in this form. (((Kathy))) the founder of the site used to tell hysterectomy stories in an AOL chat room to other women to help them understand what was going on. It stuck. Those who have just had a hysterectomy are called princesses because they are supposed to be cared for and relax like a fairy tale princess would. Don't use the term if you don't like it. All women are welcome here and we don't separate because of our differences. We come together because of the things that make us similar in order to support each other through this ordeal. The more we separate the more support and information we lose. Also where could we separate? Somewhere on the sexuality spectrum? By religious belief? Age? National origin? Occupation? Do you see where I'm going? The more we can all share the better. We can't tailor the site to everyone, so we try to make it as inclusive as possible. If you don't like --> then don't use it. Use ---> Just realize that if someone refers to you as a she is likely trying to be helpful and doesn't know you don't see yourself that way. Just take the well wishes or advice and forget about the Just be who you are and we will accept you, respect you, and provide you with all the support we can. And we often send Most people like those.
