Happy MTF Butch

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

“I was born and raised a boy but always knew that wasn’t quite right. Once I hit age 18 I started taking female hormones to transform my body into that of a woman. I hoped hormones alone would make me a woman to the world but that hasn’t quite happened yet. Most people still see me as a boy (albeit a young one with smooth skin and a strangely feminine figure), and for now I’m okay with that.

I’ve tried dressing like a woman and wearing makeup, but I hated it! That’s not who I am. It never will be.

I hope one day I’ll look and sound enough like a woman that people see me as one despite my masculine fashion and personality, but until then, I’m enjoying all the stages in-between.”

    That’s awesome! I’m glad you’re growing into who you are. I know getting mistaken for a boy can be really frustrating, and in many regards there’s no getting around that, but I know a few faab butch women who also get annoyed over being often mistaken for a guy, so at least in that aspect, you’re not alone. Keep on keeping on!

    Hi Taegan! I’m curious: if you care to elaborate your being-in-the-same-spaceness, please come visit my site, http://www.mtfbutch.com/. Being one of the few butch transwomen I’ve ever known of can get lonely; I’m always looking for others in a similar boat.

    I thought you mistyped MTF, and really meant FTM. You look female to me. :) Also you’re very cute, and your style looks very natural on you~
