misanthropicqueer: Been doin’ this T thing for a year and half, and I still get freaked out when a strand of body hair moves. IS IT A BUG OH GOD WHAT IF IT’S A BUG. Spoilers: it still happens after 2.5 years… lol
paintedspats: Hey I know you’re all probably sick of getting text posts from me but this one is fairly personal… Is any one of my followers or anyone else willing to talk with me about something..? Regarding hormone replacement therapy. If anyone has gone through it or knows a great deal about it that would be wonderful because I’m trying to understand the whole process as much as possible,...
HI I HAVE A QUESTION IN REGARDS TO TOP SURGERY FOR...
officer-nipples: So by skimming photos on le before and after, It’s relaly been bothering me, WHY DO GUY’S NIPPLES LOOK SO TERRIFYING AFTER SURGERY? Like goopy and terrifying it’s really freaking me out and I want to know why I don’t want a phobia of nipples but I feel it developing Because they are often completely removed and then grafted back onto the body? Like, seriously. They’re...
So, is nipple bleeding after top surgery a normal thing, or…? I’d rather still have both nipples after this is all healed up, so it’s kind of flipping me out :l
nobody.: Okay, so I am short at a whopping 5’3”,... →
alloys: Okay, so I am short at a whopping 5’3”, and I was just looking through the compression vests on marenagroup.com; there is a full length one that I feel would be problematic seeing as I am short, I was wondering if this model would also be acceptable for top surgery?… Incidentally, I’m also 5’3” haha. Medalie requires that people (regardless of height) get the...
alloys: Question for guys who have had top surgery; for the surgical compression vest, is there a good place online where I can find one, or is there an alternative? The place that my surgeon recommended sells them for a lot, around 200 dollars, as well as the place being in Vancouver which would cost another 60, since they want to measure me there, I can’t afford that. Any advice on this would...
thatsnothowitworks: Does anyone have a copy of the letter their therapist or doctor wrote for their top surgeon that you could link me to or send a copy of to me? If you still needed letter examples, here’s what mine said: “Dr. Daniel Medalie, I am writing this letter in support of [My Name]’s request to undergo breast/chest surgery as he currently meets WPATH’s...
TW: sexist and heterosexist slurs
vintiku: “…the t word, and that is a trans*women’s slur that should not be used by anyone who isn’t MAAB trans*. the t word hasn’t been used against FAABs in a violent manner and is not ours to reclaim.” I have a serious issue with the transgender community regarding this, lol. The issue being transmen, as trans* people, don’t have the right to reclaim a slur because it’s “never been used”...
actualtranssexual: Transsexual Brain Differences Caught on Brain Scan I think the idea of late onset transsexualism is actually really interesting.
safelovedandgood: So, I’m not sure this came out the way I wanted, and I’m sure it’ll hurt someone’s feelings, but I’m not sleeping and it’s almost 8:30 in the morning and I just don’t care. I know everything’s changing all the time, and that as people acquire more information their opinions shape and form and mutate. But seriously? I just. I hated these signifiers months ago. I was saying...
Fuck Yeah FTMs!: I Want Your Opinion, Guys →
fuckyeahftms: Do you think starting testosterone at 16 is too young? Is the person too “immature,” are they still “questioning?” The reason I ask this is when I set myself up with a therapist, my mother was very supportive, and said I can start T if I get a letter from the therapist. The doctor and I decided… I don’t think it’s necessarily too young. I started when I was 17,...
Basic Respect for Transsexuals
theselfmademen: Basic Respect For Transsexuals Please use language that corresponds to my gender identity, even if my body does not seem to match, and even when talking about my past. If you are still adjusting to my transition, it is normal to make mistakes with pronouns. Don’t draw attention to it. Just correct yourself and carry on. A transsexual woman is a male-to-female. A transsexual...
Can a FtM join the Girl Scouts?
i-are-canadanian: What if he starts hormones? Probably not, and IMHO he shouldn’t be allowed to. Girl Scouts is supposed to be a women only space, and if someone identifies as male, they shouldn’t be trying to gain entrance into a space like that. It sucks that we can’t join Boy Scouts either, but that isn’t really justification for invading a women only space.
Doctor wants to know if I'm bad at picking up on...
If I was bad at picking up on social cues, would I realize that I wasn’t picking up on them? Seriously. :I
: Marriage →
pojka: Lately, I have been thinking about marriage a lot… People think that gay-marriage would help us trans* people, too.. I kind of don’t get it. Of course it would help trans* people that are gay, but would it really help straight ones, too? And how’s that? Personally, I don’t think this could help… You’re operating on the assumption that everyone lives in a place where they...

Top surgery without ever wearing a binder?
fuckyeahftms: A little bit of dilemma here… I want to start looking more masculine in the chest area… However, I have heard so many implications regarding to binders. Am wondering if it is at all possible to have top surgery even if one has never wore a binder before? Please let me know if this is possible? Yes, it’s definitely possible. Why would you need to wear a binder to get...
Guys, there’s all this cliche stuff going around about how you have 365 new days to have a better year/change yourself/do whatever/etc. DOES ANYBODY REALIZE THAT IT’S A LEAP YEAR? GUYS, THERE ARE 366 DAYS THIS YEAR. GET ON THAT.
There's a 'boy' I know...
jelly-filled-donuts: Born a female, claims to be transgender, yet ‘he’ still wears skirts, feminine clothes, and makeup. If you really truly felt that you should have been born male, then surely you wouldn’t wear stuff like that? Correct me if I’m wrong, although I’m certain I’m not… Spoilers: you’re wrong. If he says he’s a guy, he’s a guy; doesn’t matter what...
Questions for dudes who are injecting
fuckyeahftms: Is it mandatory that you aspirate? I’m not sure how exactly how to pull back and if I’ll do it right. I always hear stories about if you hit a vein you’ll die because testosterone is oil based.. I don’t know that it’s mandatory (my doctor didn’t say anything about it until I asked), but I would suggest doing it anyway; it’s not that difficult. Just pull...
So... one year on testosterone, I guess...

feyboy: I think most people are aware of the current issue surrounding fyeahftms (the shaming of a younger femme looking trans guy), but does anybody else remember the previous fiasco that fyeahftms was involved in? Surely we haven’t already forgotten the issue that was ‘femme fridays’? Do… …and it’s still fucked up.
On Femme Shaming (Actions Speak Louder Than Words)
I think most people are aware of the current issue surrounding fyeahftms (the shaming of a younger femme looking trans guy), but does anybody else remember the previous fiasco that fyeahftms was involved in? Surely we haven’t already forgotten the issue that was ‘femme fridays’? Do any of you remember when fyeahftms was more involved in themed days, and, if so, do you remember...

createartandriot-deactivated201 asked: Please please please say you're online. Spectrum got moved to Burkhardt Building, room 109 if you don't know where that is I'll come walk you over. Also if you don't reply ill come walk you over.
Shit that isn't cool:
Specifying that you really only need to know the PGPs for me and the two people with gender neutral names. You have known me for more than two years, and I have used he, him, his for all but a month of that. It is fucked up to assume that you know someone’s PGPs based on the gender you associate with their name, and it is fucked up to ask only people you know are trans*. Every fucking year...
moononwaters replied to your post: We’re doing a play for English class. Step 1) Get a pipe. Step 2) Beat them. If I had a pipe, I would. I don’t give a fuck what they think about it, or what the teacher says. This is not happening. I don’t even understand how they don’t think this is racist.
We're doing a play for English class.
Two of the characters are black and the other character is white. My entire group is white (there’s only one POC in our class -_-). Half of the group wants to use make up to make ourselves look black. I’m with the half that’s saying, ‘hell no, that’s fucking racist’. Tell me I’m not over reacting. (The best parts of this conversation involved: “do...

xanderthegreatest: 1. It makes you use internet explorer, which is a frustrating experience in itself 2. Their website sends you round in circles 3. Everything is so complicated 4. If I select “male” as my gender, they want me to register with the selective service. If I select “female,” ..well, I’m not, so.. I’m not really sure what to do about it. On the other hand, even if I DO register...
Colored condoms creep me out.

I’m bisexual and I am genuinely curious as to why someone would question the validity of my sexuality. I just love when people try to make you define your sexual orientation. It’s… That’s different, because artichokes are evil incarnate. Anyone who...
jimmythezombie: So, on Facebook, I asked people if it is possible to do the surgery without a doctor’s note. Apparently, I have to be on hormones before I can even get it done. Fucking bullshit. Not true. While some surgeons may require this, it is by no means a standard thing. I know for a fact that Garramone doesn’t require this, and he’s a rather well known surgeon. Taken...
The Trans Guy: College Application Help →
fuckyeahftms: Hi guys. I’m a 16-year-old FTM in his junior year of high school, and I’m looking into colleges and the whole application process so I can familiarize myself with it before having to do it. My name is not legally changed and will not be until after I have applied for college and… The Common App. actually specifies that you are supposed to list whatever is on your birth...
If you put down bisexuals for not being inclusive...
thetransguy: Not everyone is attracted to everyone. Bisexuals, simply have a preference of male and female. Homosexuals, simply have a preference for the same sex. Heterosexuals, simply have a preference for the opposite sex. If you’re pansexual, awesome, you’re attracted to everyone, but that doesn’t mean bisexuals are saying the non-binaries don’t exist by simply saying they are bisexual. ...
819) I feel the only person I could spend my life...
Can I just point out that it’s really fucked up to assume that a pre-op trans guy is going to be okay with being topped just because he is pre-op? Being pre-op has nothing to do with that, and to imply that it does honestly annoys me. -_-
So... Maybe this is a silly question?
Where are you supposed to go to get blood work done? I’m more than a month overdue for blood work, and I have no idea where I can even have this done. ;-;
Do any trans* people go to UMass Amherst?
Does anyone know their policies on housing trans* students who don’t want to live in their gender-neutral housing dorm? I really want to go to UMass, but I have absolutely no desire to be forced into gender-neutral housing or to be forced to live with a woman. HALP ME!
I somehow ended up with 62 followers.
The last time I checked, I only had 43. I guess I should start seeing who I want to follow back o_o
Anybody know where I can get a rash guard from?
ftjosh: Walmart or Target didn’t have any and Modell’s just had wetsuits. I’m going to the beach tomorrow and I just need a simple rash guard tshirt. Do you live near a Dick’s Sporting Goods? They generally have stuff like that.
