About me

By Betty Jašková, February 7, 2008, 2:01, Reflections

I‘m a transvestite. I’m just like any other guy, with the exception sometimes I look / dress up as a woman. Some of you may know what a word “transvestite” means, some don’t. Transvestite is a person who dresses up like a person of opposite gender. I don’t consider myself to be a weirdo, I already accepted this part of me and try to live with it, overcoming the obstacles of bourgeoisie society we live in. Bourgeoisie society that judges without knowing me.

This post has an follow up, my latest situation and thoughts: Betty in 2014 – evolution of a transvestite

How was Betty born?

My otherness became evident already in childhood. Already as a child I was too sensitive, I played often with girls. As the time progressed I started to dress occasionally in parts of femme clothing in secret , using a lipstick every now and then. After the end of my late puberty I learned what I’m with the help of the internet. I was already studying at university and thanks to hours spent on internet I learned I’m not alone. After that there was a short period when I thought I was a transsexual, which quite obsessed me. I was already considering how to get to hormonal therapy medicaments. Then it faded, and that was the end of my transsexual period.

I chose name Betty long time ago, when I was studying at university, after discovering Betty Page, a 50-ties fetish pin-up model. I liked her seductive and provocative look, crazy photos, as well as her direct passion which radiated from her photos. Later on I added surname, which I "borrowed" from a friend and I became Betty Jašková. Well In English I use only Betty Jaskova, to avoid misunderstanding. "Jašková" means crazy, what fits me and I like it. 🙂

After finishing university came the crash - crash with the real life with all it’s problems. I tried to suppress my otherness with all possible ways: starting with multiple phase training in sports, through workaholic approach, to “reseting” my mind during weekends in bars and clubs. It’s hard to tell now how much it was suppression and how much I really liked work and sports. One thing is sure, I didn’t have any courage and self-esteem to “manifest” myself as a woman.

The change came just before I turned 30, when I told myself: ENOUGH! My buying fever started and I often bought femme things that didn’t even suit me. I bought books about makeup and learned from them. One day I decided I will do my first complete makeover, and after few hours of preparations I finished the makeover by putting on the wig. Then I looked into the mirror and my heart jumped. After very long time I felt happy and calm, I knew I will never give this up.

What then?

I started to make contacts via internet within transgender community and then I started to attend events, mainly in Czech republic. There I met lots of amazing people who helped me a lot. Not forgetting also my online friends who helped me as well. I want to thank you all, it would be much harder without you.

And then? I think I can compare myself to a dog off the chain :). I didn‘t miss a single event, traveled a lot, visited alternative events a met lot‘s of people. Only now, as I look back, I see how much has changed in last few months. And I know a lot will change.

Basic stats:

  • location: Prague, Czech Republic.
  • age: about 30
  • height: 186 cm = 6 feet 1 inch, without heels 🙂
  • weight: 66 kg = 145 lbs
  • measures: 94-77-92 cm = 37-30- 36 inches
  • hair color: like today?
  • eye color: people who know me, know 🙂

    Hi darling how are you? I'm a transgender still closeted, despite i have already had my body shaved, been wearing my nails painted in clear nailpolish and etc. I even took some hormones which developed a bit my breasts. Mostly attracted to women. Would you give me some some advice? I'd like to know if you have made use of hormones. I'm from Brazil. Thank you for your blog and being the person you are.

    • Betty says:

      Hello Sam, thanks for showing interest in my website. Unfortunately I can't advice on hormones, my knowledge in this area is limited. Personally I wouldn't take hormones without prior discussion with a specialist.

  2. Sam says:

    Hello, Betty, I love your website. Interesting for everybody, chiefly us, transgenders people. It's a fascinating subject.

  3. Michelle says:

    Hello Betty, I just look at your website and I love it.
    Like you, it's difficult to live as a man for moments and as a women for others.

    Thank you for this site.
    Merry Christmas and happy new year for you Betty !

    kisses

    Thanks for this site. I have a friend who confessed to me that he is a closeted transvestite, and he feels that he is being his true self only when he is cross dressed. He is married and his wife doesn't know, nor does he think she would understand or support him. It breaks my heart that he has to suppress who he is, and he wishes he could live as woman but he doesn't have any way to do that unless he asks for a divorce. I am trying to support him as much as I can and am considering buying him a set of artificial "strap on" breasts. he is very excited about the thought of having a pair to wear while he is alone at home. I want to find a local transvestite to help teach him to make himself up too. I am the first person he has cross dressed in front of and I can't do enough to help give him a little of the freedom he deserves.

    • Betty says:

      Hello John,

      it's great to have a friend like yourself. Most transgender people don't get support when they need it most. Thumbs up for you.

      As for local TV, try registering at http://www.trannyladies.info it's a dating/social site for transgender people I created.

      Best regards, Betty

    Hey Betty, i love your site, it helped me realise i'm not alone 🙂
    2 Things:
    I'm a young teenager, i love secretly dressing up as a girl; especially helpful is that my parents go out a lot, any tips?
    Secondly, do you have anything on manicures?

    Thanks!

      Hello Christina,

      in your place I'd first try to come clear with my urges and feelings. It can help you to find a direction in your life. If you are an teenager often dressing up and looking sexy as a girl might look the most important thing in your life. Been there myself. But there is more. If your family is open-minded I'd try to open up top some close. The sooner you start to form as personality the better for you, cause being a different requires that. You might feel sick to death sometimes. From people, from their reactions, bigot opinions, etc. Read on Internet, read personal blogs. Don't get lost in chat rooms. Mostly just waste of time. Meet decent and open people from community and discuss your problems. You will grow regardless of sex, looks, etc.

      As for manicure, no special tips. My nails are naturally feminine looking and they grow very fast 🙂
