Profile: James/JD

A young, pale-skinned trans guy with buzzed brown hair, facial piercings, and what appear to be stretched earlobes. He is wearing a black t-shirt and looking at the camera.

You can call me… James or JD. Sometimes Turd Ferguson.

I identify as… A boy. I’d like to say a man but that’s something I’ll never be. I’m an ex-lesbian, queer loving, feminine tranny boy that would rather pick apart computers then watch football.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Male pronouns still make me giddy even after years of usage. A constant reminder of what I’m not and what I am really has an impact. That didn’t make sense.

I’m attracted to… Queer women. Intelligent, strong women who don’t give a fuck about gender or sexuality.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Realize that I’m still me. My choice of taking permanent hormones does not affect who I always was. I’m still Rebecca, the nationally ranked swimmer, video game fanatic, Apple loving dork. I’m just happy now.

I want people to understand… That I wish I didn’t have to do this. I wish I didn’t have to physically alter my body to feel at peace. I wish I didn’t have to fight with health insurance to cover who I am, to change birth certificates and legal documents. It’s not an easy path, but I’m finding out that the journey is worth the happiness.

About James/JD
I’m a 19 year old trans guy. I’ll be roughly 1 month on testosterone in September. I work at Apple, I like boobs and video games and boxer briefs. That really sums me up.

    My name is JD too! I’ve, however never been a nationally ranked swimmer, and can’t even swim at all so you’ve definitely got one up on me.

    If you ever find yourself in PA you can come pick apart my computer (maybe then it will actually work) and we can get some xbox 360 time in. Do you like Call of Duty? I’m on a major Call of Duty kick right now (whereas my girlfriend is on a major “don’t talk to me I’m playing Assassin’s Creed” kick right now).

    Hey I’m on T, am just a hair over 20 years old and I like video games and boxer briefs too. Apple computers tho, anh, they’re better than microsoft obviously, but in my books not that much better.

    CoD is chill but I’m beating the Rockstar games right now. GTA: SA and shit. but that’s because I only have a 5 year old PS2 and I’m too broke to get something better.

    but if you’re in nor cal respond to this and maybe we can grab a brew and beat up my old ps2 (or old school n64) or play on whatever you have that i’m sure is a million times better
