Your significant other is thinking about transitioning? Here are some of the things I learned the night and weeks after Matt told me that he is trans: Some of these terms can be found with textbook definitions in our FAQ section. I am not an expert. My knowledge is limited and learning and understand the trans community is an ongoing process. Gender identity has very little to do with genetailia, assigned gender, chromosomes, sexual orientation, or presentation. Just because someone is currently presenting as a female does not mean that they identify as female. Gender identity is the gender that a person feels they are. I truly believe that no gender identity is wrong.
Despite the older meaning of the word “gay,” gay characters in fiction tend to be a miserable lot, and not by simple coincidence — their misery can be attributed largely to their sexuality or, more accurately, other people’s attitudes towards it. In short, they don’t just have angst, they have gayngst.
Characters suffering from gayngst are prone to alcoholism and other forms of substance abuse , self-loathing, rampant homophobia towards themselves and others , falling in tragic unrequited love with heterosexuals , contemplating and often committing suicide , and wishing that they were straight. Gayngst is a Pet-Peeve Trope of many because while it usually portrays gay people sympathetically and addresses an issue many gay people in Real Life go through, it can be interpreted as saying that it’s impossible to be gay without being miserable, or that gay people don’t deserve Happy Endings , or at its very worst and most ineptly-handled, gay relationships are innately disastrous.
In , Hirschfeld supervised the second genital reassignment surgery to be reported in detail in a peer-reviewed journal, that of Lili Elbe of Denmark. In , Hirschfeld introduced the German term “Transsexualismus”,  after which David Oliver Cauldwell introduced “transsexualism” and “transsexual” to English in and True transsexuals feel that they belong to the other sex, they want to be and function as members of the opposite sex, not only to appear as such. For them, their sex organs, the primary testes as well as the secondary penis and others are disgusting deformities that must be changed by the surgeon’s knife.
Beyond Benjamin’s work, which focused on male-to-female transsexual people, there are cases of the female to male transsexual, for whom genital surgery may not be practical. Benjamin gave certifying letters to his MTF transsexual patients that stated “Their anatomical sex, that is to say, the body, is male. Their psychological sex, that is to say, the mind, is female. Another reason for objecting to the term transsexual is the concern that it implies something to do with sexuality , when it is actually about gender identity.
Like other trans people, transsexual people prefer to be referred to by the gender pronouns and terms associated with their gender identity. For example, a trans man is a person who was assigned the female sex at birth on the basis of his genitals , but despite that assignment, identifies as a man and is transitioning or has transitioned to a male gender role; in the case of a transsexual man, he furthermore has or will have a masculine body.
Individuals who have undergone and completed sex reassignment surgery are sometimes referred to as transsexed individuals;  however, the term transsexed is not to be confused with the term transsexual, which can also refer to individuals who have not yet undergone SRS, and whose anatomical sex still does not match their psychological sense of personal gender identity. The terms gender dysphoria and gender identity disorder were not used until the s,  when Laub and Fisk published several works on transsexualism using these terms.
Male-to-female transsexualism has sometimes been called “Harry Benjamin’s syndrome” after the endocrinologist who pioneered the study of dysphoria. Harry Benjamin said in

While my BIID symptoms have lessened since getting my hysterectomy which helped to correct some of that feeling of overcompleteness and since going OFF antidepressants, I still experience this sometimes. Also known as Xenomelia and Foreign Limb Syndrome. Stumbling on resources that informed me that research on phantom limb syndrome has shown that it is possible for sufferers to manipulate their phantom appendages in physically impossible ways, or have fully-functioning appendages that they never had called congenital phantom limb syndrome.
I got a lot of search results about a disorder called BIID, and started reading. BIID is typically accompanied by the desire to amputate one or more healthy limbs to achieve that end. The cause of BIID is unknown. It can also extend to affect the relationship that you have not with any particular piece of anatomy, but ability, like being able to see or hear. The sort that I have seems to affect the entirety of my body, making me feel like I should be smaller than I currently am.
I also wrote about it at the Experience Project. Discovering this is a huge, huge deal for me. It informs my gender, my orientation, my sexuality. I thought there was something wrong with me for a long time, and just as I was coming to terms with the idea of not getting pleasure out of being touched, I discover BIID.
Yes, I answered her. This post discusses FTM transgender people, and the hormone treatment available to them. Testosterone is what gives a biologically male adolescent his deep voice, body and facial hair, and body shape.
A M2F crossdreamer may, after years of denial, come to the conclusion that she is a woman and become a transwoman. A masculine straight man can, after having had some hard real life experiences, understand that he has a feminine side after all and learn how to give in to a woman.
Here is his twitter, if you have any questions or comments to send to him. Send a Twitter direct message if you want to talk about using my services to promote redpill ideas. There are many people trying to trick us in this day and age. This varies from bullshit health advice to the blue pill nature of most of modern society. There is also another way men have been tricked and it can be from our own XY chromosome brethren. Trannies will try to trick a player to get some loving.
Trannies exhibit the most feminine hamsters by their names alone. Like the name Jessica but spelled as Jessika. It never really ends well. Trannies require others to prop them up and support their delusions. A little fun test is to imply the hottie in the dress is a he.

Born in the right body: She currently lives in the American southwest with her partner and daughter, a huge dog, three cats, and various insects who come and go. Brie has been a member of the 4thWaveNow community for two years, since her daughter first temporarily identified as transgender. In particular, Brie agreed to be our public spokesperson to counter the untruth that only religious, anti-LGB conservatives are skeptical about medical transition of gender-atypical young people.
Anyone who has spent time on our site knows we are not a monolith, but a diverse group of parents with varying though generally congruent views.
Scientist who specialize in sex and sexuality tested a sample of men using a device that measures the reaction of a mans privates to various visual stimuli. Men who are attracted to transgender women were not turned on by porn featuring two gay men, but they were turned on by porn featuring women.
To cope with his distress, he turned to alcohol and marijuana as a means of escape. Though he was employed as a female professional model, he was generally dissatisfied with his identity and existence, and “was not loving life”. Angel began researching various methods of medical transition, and began this process at the age of This was because Angel was one of the earliest trans men to be allowed hormonal transition, due to which there was limited data on prior cases like his.
He was, as his doctor stated, “going to be my guinea pig”, where experimentation was the main course of action in helping him. Angel was willing to go through with these challenges because, if this could not be a solution to his dysphoria, he would have committed suicide. Eventually, he was taking 1-cc doses of testosterone every 10 days. Bottom surgery was another aspect he was looking to change, because he wanted to obtain a physical penis to fit the male schema.
However, he quickly realized that there was no sufficient technology at the time to create what he desired. He chose not to undergo genital surgery and currently considers his medical transition complete. By this time he identified and presented as male, but had not had any genital surgery and still had a vulva , so he promoted these works describing himself as “The Man With a Pussy”.
In , he appeared in the Titan Media release Cirque Noir, becoming the first trans man to be featured in an all-male film produced by a company specializing in gay male porn.

December 19, at 1: The small deviations from that base fact are some large companies who have decided that if NN will fall, they need to get ready to be cooks instead of dinner. But your post actually suggests a better argument to me: ISPs have a relatively standardized, low cost way to bill their own customers. Similarly, if an ISP wants to play in some business itself, convincing them to let you pay to compete with them is going to be very difficult even if in the long run that is the optimal solution for all parties.
I wanted to thank you for this article. I have two trans teenagers. My 18 year old I had gave up for adoption and we recently reconnected. My 15 year old I’ve raised from birth.
December 9, at 7: It took courage for the woman in the first video to speak in front of a crowd about her experience. Notice the ugly trans symbol in the background. She said she spent one third of her life with her ex-husband. She says he liked Johnny Cash and liked to go camping. How his wife of fifteen years feels about it is of no significance. The way that the woman in the first video starts her speech seems strange to me.
Maybe bisexual, but not lesbian. She says she is queer. By the way she talked, she was still sexually attracted to her husband. She makes it clear that she entered the fifteen year marriage as a heterosexual woman. At any rate, she is courageous for standing on a stage with a trans symbol in the background speaking truth as to her experience.
