Happy Valentine’s Day to me.
..I missed this guy ;_;
(I am very serious)
My name’s Toby
I need more trans friends but non trans friends are welcome as well! If you enjoy short walks to the refrigerator, weed, aliens, comedy, and dinosaurs then you should come talk to me. If not, just being weird helps too.
The name’s Chase, 18, half Native American (Tsimshian, Coast Salish, Musqueam Nation)
Pre-everything, only recently started to transition… I found a therapist, and a group, and have to come out to my family… My friends are all aware, and supportive, but, of course, there’s still the close-minded family to worry about…
From British Columbia, Canada.
Message me, I love to meet new people, and I think it’d be cool to get a few trans or ally friends~
Trans guy here, experimenting with nipple clamps. I have a reasonable amount of sensation, even after my grafts…it HAS been around two years, I guess!
Just being careful.
Hello, I’m Oliver. I’m a twenty year old trans man from Maryland. Follow me if you would like. oliveracedavis.com
What a hairy bloke
I think the larger conversation that needs to be had is who are the ones getting the most visibility in this community, and who are quick to defend them.
I also feel like in the eyes of some people I’ve totes lost -100 radical/liberal/anarcho whatever the fuck points for not “identifying” as ftm and for just being like, so, this is a medical thing and T is like medicine whoop-dee-doo I wanna be stealth in life.
Because I feel like the token person of color that only pops in to remind ya’ll that trans POC exist in your white washed worlds where you think you are doing good and being super heros for trans*folk.
I implore you to read this article which goes into depth about how this will actually hurt low-income individuals and those who are in imprisoned within the U.S. legal system, particularly people of color.
Basically, because the diagnosis will no longer be recognized as a disorder, there are legal grounds now to deny imprisoned trans individuals access to hormones, therapy, and surgeries. The same arguement can now be made for low-income individuals. The de-medicalization of gender identity disorder now affects our benefits system in terms of what clinics will be allowed to use state funding to treat people who are transsexual as well as claiming disability based on said disorder (which is rare, but has been done).
There’s a great amount of privilege surrounding the argument of transsexualism as an identity versus a disorder. Your linguistic approach to how you want to relate to it as an identity is probably wrapped up in your ability to afford hormones, therapy, and surgery without government and legal intervention recognizing that it is a need and thus funding it.
“I want to think about the DSM and other medical and medicalizing tools in a way that asks what we want from them in a set of systems that takes away survival chances from the most vulnerable in our communities rather than looking to the DSM to define my own or anyone’s identity; I would rather ask, how can the DSM be utilized to create the best distributive outcomes and benefits for our communities members.”
Long story short, the declassification of it as a disorder is going to do more harm than good for the most oppressed group of transsexuals.
so I found a free ftm porn video that wasn’t too err offensive with its words. Just a bit archaic. (Just to be safe trigger warning for misgendering and it’s a porn site, so rape in the ads possibly)
How do you know who is trans and who isn’t?
Are you talking about only dating pre-hormone/pre-op trans men?
What about stealth trans men? If they don’t have their status written all over their faces and are wearing some pride t-shirt that outs them, how do you differentiate between them and cis…
So, this is what working out does, yeah?
I’ve been surprised to see myself in the mirror lately because up until recently I was always skeptical that I could morph my body into something I like. My brother got all of the work out talks, football try-out encouragement talks, and muscle building advice from my dad, but that was obviously something they didn’t willingly share with me. Having to learn how to tone and build muscle is something I really have no idea how to do, save what I’ve read on the internet. But whatever I’m doing is working, so I guess I’ll keep doing it? There’s a part of me that is rather lonely going about this though. I still wish I got the fatherly boyhood texas football jock talks. I’m pretty sure my dad would be stoked for me right now.
cry so hard.
so cute and so sad
