Cis People

soundoftheantipsychiatree:

My god, cis people, aside from those who are explicitly and thoroughly informed on the issues and experiences of trans people, are just so fucking ignorant sometimes it blows my mind.

I posted on Facebook about how Netflix misgenders Brandon Teena and how fucking disrespectful that is. First comment, cis guy, “I don’t see the issue here”.

As if I give a shit about your cispinions. Fuck off.

You seem to be confusing ignorance with intentional neglect of knowledge.

People can’t really form an opinion either way on things they have no knowledge about. Outside of tumblr unless you are trans or very good friends with someone who is. No one talks about it. Its not a thing. They have no reason to go looking for the right way to talk or think about it because they have no reason to. You should use that moment to explain why thats bad instead of posting a rant to the coddling masses on tumblr. You’re not helping the problem when its literally like, a paragraph and a few minutes of effort.

I’m feeling very discouraged lately by my lack of noticeable changes from testosterone.

Tomorrow is my 6 months on T I’ll be posting my 6 months comparison tomorrow and I’m hoping a couple people can give me some insight on it. Apart from that, the only things that have changed are noticeable only to me. I have body hair, I have significant genital growth, I have acne, but that’s about it. I know it’s only been 6 months and I should be comparing this to cis male puberty, but it still doesn’t feel like enough.

A lot of guys I’ve seen begin to pass after 4-6 months, but that isn’t going to be the case for me at all, and it’s very disheartening. I had to graduate high school with photos where I look like a lesbian and I’m 4 months on testosterone. 

I guess it can all be equated to unrealistic expectations. Maybe not so much unrealistic as they are very optimistic. I thought by now I’d at least pass more, but if anything I get more people staring at me in public and wondering what I am. 

have your testosterone levels checked, you may be absorbing and converting T to estrogen and might need to have your dose upped or lowered depending

Ftm transition help(HRT)

horrendousatbest:

Hi, Im Jake Dausi and I’m ftm transgender. I’m about to be approved for HRT(Hormone Replacement Surgery) and I’m really excited about that. I’ve been living as a transgender Male for about two years and I’ve been wanting HRT for just about as long, I finally got my doctor one my side and I can start the process in a few months, but there is a big problem.

The cost of HRT is $200 a month, and I’m only 17 and can’t afford that big of a bill on my own. Now dont worry I’m no self absorbed enough to ask for donations, that would  be rude, but I am asking for help.

As some of you know I sell Plushies and Art commissions here on Tumblr and other well known sites(Deviantart, Gigapause, Redbubble Etc) but I’ve been having trouble getting commissions. I’m asking anyone to please spread the word about it to others so that I can possible get some more commissions. Below Ill but links to both my Tumblr, my Email, and my Deviant page for anyone willing to help.

Thank you for listening, this would really mean a lot.

if you are getting injections there is NO WAY it should be that much, i only pay $60 every 3 months for my shots. If you can get a prescription faxed to any pharmacy, get it faxed to stroheckers rx, they are great and very affordible

Phalloplasty + hair removal

the-way-it-went:

Okay so the time has come. I need to start getting plans together for hair removal. I’m getting referred for phalloplasty, and this is the first step. I need to call the clinic I’m looking at and talk prices, start getting a plan as to when I can start, how much I’ll need to save to fund it. I’m really scared to call. I’m going to say I need a surgical procedure that requires I get all hair removed from one forearm and I’d like to come in to talk about that. Then Hopefully I get there and my vagueness won’t be too fucking weird and it won’t cost more than my fucking rent and I can just get it over with, book a bunch of appointments. Then all I have to do is show up with money and sit there.

Fuck I’m nervous.

Lots of surgical procedures require skin grafts. That shouldn’t be weird at all. All you need to tell them is that you are having a skin graft. Done and done, if they ask where to, say you don’t feel comfortable explaining your medical history with them.

All trans people are rays of sunshine and are guaranteed to brighten up your day. ;u;

PFFFFFFFT no, a lot of us are dicks. We have the same level of asshole to ray of sunshine as the rest of the world. 

FOR POST TOP SURGERY GUYS

If you’re not squeamish about looking at pictures of scars that is. 

I have found out that the best way to explain away your large top surgery scars, is, get this. A lung transplant. The scars are almost identical, you can think of 1000 ways lungs might need to get replaced as a cover up. So if you’re ever at the pool, and someone asks, all you have to say is something like. “I lived in a house where they had black mold yada yada” depending on the crowd. I would keep it accident related though, makes it seem more believable than a guy in his late teens early 20s getting a tumor.

Another gender therapy appointment today.
I’m kinda getting sick of them, i feel like the therapist is digging for worms, i mean, i understand they have to ‘check’ i’m not transitioning on some whim, but just because i have a weird life story doesn’t mean its linked to my gender. 

She has suggested that i only want to transition to escape my mothers view of me, but the reality is that it took me so long to come out because of the negative language my mum uses to anyone that isn’t a slim petite feminine girly girl, which really affected me as a kid.
It made me have a lot of internalized homophobia and transphobia towards the image i actually felt i fit into. So i kept rejecting it.
 

She has also suggested that i am too articulate and try and fit in too much to each sentence, but i mean, the sessions are only an hour long and she’ll go off into asking me about things that really have no importance, like career things. So i feel i have to try and fit the actual important stuff in, because i don’t want to have these sessions anymore as i know 100% i’m doing the right thing transitioning and my mental health and positive body image reflects that.

gah maybe i’m bitching, i just don’t like people questioning my choices based on my upbringing.

You should trust your therapist. If they don’t think you are transgender, they can help you with whatever problem might be influencing you. Its a good thing not to have gender identity disorder, even if you’ve already made peace with it and have come to accept the likelihood with determination. 
Though what your therapist might be doing is suggesting things she knows it ISNT to get you to reflect on your resolve. Its a kind of reverse psychology thing. Still i would never have started hormones if my therapist hadn’t been on board 100%. I’d have taken daddy issues any day. It would’ve have saved me whats racked up to over 8k in surgery, legal shit and hormones. 

nah, she knows i have dysphoria and i’ve already been officially diagnosed with gender identity disorder by three different doctors.
She herself has also signed me off to see the dr to talk about top surgery etc. And i’ve been on hormones for 7 months.
I’m guessing she’s just working on building a kind of psychological profile of my history and marking key life events?
Idk, maybe i’m just scared they are going to turn around one day and stop prescribing me testosterone or not let me have any surgery. It’s an irrational fear, but i don’t have much faith in the NHS. 
Its a tough road to travel, transitioning. 

Once you have the letter of diagnosis saying hormones and surgery are necessary, you don’t have to go to the therapist any more and they can’t take it back. I would wonder why they said you still have to go if you have your T and Top Surgery letters
