Question: How to Celebrate Starting T in a Positive way?


Someone asks…

how do you not only celebrate starting T in the positive way, but also give yourself the space and time to respect the sadness that leaving the female version of you behind brings?

To all FTMs: did you take some time out on your own, or rather spend time with lots of people? Did you feel sad at all? How did you spend your last days on female hormones?

Please post your response in the comments below.

Cheekbones


Someone wrote…

When I was a kid, I wanted cheekbones so I could look like a girl. Now, I want cheekbones so I can look like a guy.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Butch


Reposted from Wandering Eye.

“BUTCH is an environmental portraiture project and exploration of the butch aesthetic, identity and presentation of female masculinity as it stands in 2013-14. It is a celebration of those who dwell outside of the stringent social binary that separates the sexes and a glimpse into the private and often unseen spaces of people who exude their authentic sense of self.”

Genderfluid Pronouns Necklace


Reposted from Save your Scissors.

“Gender isn’t a binary, and it isn’t always a fixed point either. We’d seen pronoun necklaces before and thought they were very cool and could be useful, except for one problem: they didn’t change.

This necklace is for anyone who is genderqueer, genderfluid, bigender, people in multiple systems where there is more than one gender, and anyone else who finds one set of gender pronouns to be inadequate for their self or selves expression. Flip the charms over to change which one is visible at the front, to let people know which pronouns you want used for yourself at the current time.

We used to offer pre-made sets of pronouns, but there’s no way for those to cover everyone! So finally, it’s here: PICK YOUR OWN PRONOUNS! :D”

Some days


Someone wrote…

I’m pretty much okay with how my body is physically (to put it bluntly I like having a vagina and a bit of boob) but I feel like mentally I’m detached from my body and my mental gender can fluctuate.

I look at myself and I can see myself as feminine or masculine or androgynous and I like it that way. I wouldn’t mind being referred to by any pronoun. Some days I feel more masculine or feminine or somewhere in the middle and present accordingly.

Given all this I think I am genderfluid but I have heard a lot of people say you can’t be trans without dysphoria and I don’t have dysphoria. I do experience gender euphoria though which I just learned is a thing. I don’t like being called a girl or a woman but it’s just a mild discomfort.

I am just looking for some validation really. I’m confused and don’t know if it’s okay for me to feel this way. Am I just a cis girl with internalized misogyny? I don’t like feeling limited.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

First time I think I look good in femme clothing


Submitted by Jo-I-Dunno, the model and photographer.

” I’m a transwoman and have been on HRT for 5.5 years now. I hoped hormones alone would make me look so feminine that I could keep my masculine fashion and personality but still be seen as a woman.

That hasn’t been the case. I’m still seen as male to the general public. I recently started experimenting with my hair and eyebrows and some light makeup without changing my clothes, but that didn’t work either: I just became an unusually cute boy.

But just recently I bought a started shopping for women’s clothes, and, holy smokes, I’m way hotter than I ever imagined I could be.

Beginning to rethink my MTF butch gender identity…”

Hey, Call Me Riley!


Riley Alexandr wrote…

To the tune of “Tell Her About It” by Billy Joel

Listen up
‘Cause there’s one quick thing
It’s been weighing on my mind
I was gonna wait
But it’d be too late
Though I’ve got time on my side

I’m a loving friend
And a real great listener, too
But today is when
The listener is you

Oh, listen up
I’m sure that you think
You know exactly what to say
You don’t want some kid correcting you
But there’s a will so there’s a way

You might think you know me
‘Cause you see me every day
But that’s one more reason why I’ve gotta say…

CHORUS:
Hey, call me Riley
I’m a guy and I’m a girl
There’s a spectrum labelled gender
Wouldn’t trade it for the world

Hey, call me Riley
‘Cause I’m genderfluid, see
If you could, just call me Riley
That would mean so much to me

Listen up
‘Cause dysphoria sucks
And I’m not asking a lot
Just one simple thing
That would help me out
Considering what all I got

When I try to pass
I’m hella insecure
But to start off there’s one thing that helps for sure…

CHORUS:
Hey, call me Riley
It’s a way to show you care
When you see me walking
Say, “Hey, Riley!” and I’m there

Hey call me Riley
It’s a name that you should use
When in need of my attention
That’s the name that you should choose

Cause now and then
I’ll get to worrying
And I’ll start to feel this hopelessness inside
Though you may not have done anything
Is that helping me or telling me to hide?

Listen up
‘Cause it’s hard to be myself with no respect
If we’re friends at all
Then it’s not too tall
Of an order to expect

That you call me by
The name that I told you
So the next time we meet up
Here’s what you do:

(chorus x2)

What’s your experience?

Question: documenting the transition


the german asks…

any creative ideas to document a transition? How do I make a blog or a vlog funny and interesting, should I take pictures as well? What about a good old photo-collage? I get a Little bored by all those similar YouTube Videos, so are there any other ways to record/document and track the whole process of transitioning?

I am not good in making Videos, not good in talking, singing, reading…(to record the voice and how it changes…)and I am not good in photography. As I am a lover of painting and drawing (but again, not good at it) and writing, I can`t really think of something “Special” to follow my own Transition. My head is empty. How do you do it?

I identify as… Male (Transgender!!!) :D

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t mind “they/them” pronouns. But I usually use “he/him” pronouns.

I’m attracted to… Literally everyone. I’m pansexual. (and proud!)

I want people to understand… That just because I’m a pansexual transgender that doesn’t mean I’m an alien!

You’re Dressing as You


Someone wrote…

Clothing does NOT – I repeat NOT – make the gender.

My boyfriend reminded me of this a few weeks back, when I didn’t want to wear a bracelet he got me. I wanted to wear it, honestly, but it was too girly for my identity. (I’m trans, ftm by the way. He didn’t know when he got me the bracelet.) I told him this as gently as I could.

He countered with, “If I prove that this bracelet won’t make you less of a man, would you wear it?” I told him yes.

He then proceeded to wear the bracelet around school (with a short sleeved shirt), and when anyone questioned it, he said, “I’m sorry you think men can’t wear bracelets. You must lead a boring life. I’m a man wearing a bracelet, and I feel no insecurity whatsoever. Still a man.” Gradually, he talked to almost every guy in the school.

The next week, guys started wearing bracelets to school. It was just a few at first, but then it turned into more and more, till almost everyone wore a bracelet. My boyfriend even took pictures and showed them to me. In one picture, one guy held a sign reading “#StillAMan”.

I wear the bracelet every day now, and it reminds me how much I love him, and it also reminds me that clothing does not make the gender. I can wear this bracelet wherever and whenever I want, and I am #StillAMan.

Clothing does NOT – I repeat NOT – make the gender. You can wear a bracelet or makeup or a dress and still be a man. For my trans sisters out there, you can wear pants and a hoodie and sneakers and still be a woman. Heck, wear whatever y’all wanna wear. You’re not dressing “as a woman” or “as a man”. You’re dressing as YOU.

What’s your experience?

Question: Don’t You Forget About He (and They)


Riley asks…

I’m genderfluid, with (officially) no preference regarding pronouns – or at least, that’s what I tell people. Being dfab (designated female at birth), I’ve responded to she/her for my whole life. I don’t mind this, and in fact I’m used to it, but some variety would be nice.

How could I convince squad to change up the pronouns they use to describe me? (My particular goal is for my best friend at least to use different pronouns.)

Six Years


Someone wrote…

I came out to my mother as non-binary after six years of knowing. Halfway through telling her, she said “it’s totally fine, but this is confusing” and left. I admit I’m a little hurt that she didn’t even try to understand the concept of more than two genders when it applies to her child.
