Being “visibly trans*” is fucking dangerous as shit, and if you think we all have an obligation for our entire lives to be political, you are, in fact, privileged.
On that note, speculating on whether anybody is trans and providing guidelines on how to…
If someone just blurted out and asked me if I were trans I would probably hit them.
Three ONE simple rule ■ to physical transition.
If you don’t have dysphoria, don’t physically transition.
If you think even for a second that you’re going to miss your breasts, don’t have top surgery. If you’re uncomfortable with any of the changes of testosterone,…
And then stuck with permanent changes and ending up with more dysphoria than before?
Yeah, smart idea.
Three simple rules to physical transition.
- If you don’t have dysphoria, don’t physically transition.
- If you think even for a second that you’re going to miss your breasts, don’t have top surgery.
- If you’re uncomfortable with any of the changes of testosterone, don’t start it.
You don’t get to choose the changes.
Everytime I tell someone I want to be a doctor…
They say I should be a plastic surgeon/endocrinologist/urologist/gender therapist, only because I am trans.
And there for I should ‘pay it forward’.
I don’t know if you’ve ever seen Silence Of The Lambs but that could be the reason behind why they just hand out testosterone and surgery letters.
Let’s just say, you’ve had bottom surgery.
Do you think you should have to tell a (potential)partner that you’re essentially sterile?
If so, when?
(You may or may not be stealth to them.)
When I first came out, I thought there was no such thing as a stupid trans person.
I thought that due to the maturity and understanding of your body and your brain, you couldn’t be stupid and trans.
To understand the way your brain works different from a cis persons, the understanding of complex surgical procedures and hormone treatments would make you a smart person.
But then, I joined tumblr.
There is no point in responding to these bullies because they won’t even acknowledge that they are bullies. But to everyone being picked on by them because you aren’t following the way they want you to transition, I am sorry. You don’t deserve it. Please ignore them and keep your head up. Your gender and your life is your own. They don’t have a say in it at all.
These people aren’t bullies. They’re not seeking you out and trying to make you feel shit about yourselves.
All they’re trying to do is help you and make sure you don’t transition and end up regretting it.
I’m questioning whether this is even worth it right now…
I don’t want to go back to being Latona and hearing “I told you so”
and I don’t want to go back to hating myself that I end up attempting again…
But it’s causing me so many problems with my family… mostly my dad but I’m so close to just saying fuck it and giving up…
I don’t know what to do…
I think if you’re willing to not transition because ‘ugh its just too hard’ then maybe you weren’t trans in the first place.
