Trans Trending-Who is Transitioning



You do NOT have to change your body to wriggle from the gender straight jacket, something feminist everywhere need to begin letting our young women know before its too late.

  1. 5-6 years ago, other women were starting their transition to 'malehood" like:
    * Meiko
    http://www.youtube.com/user/MeikoEliasXavier
    * Charles
    http://www.youtube.com/user/charlesasher?blend=2&ob=1
    * TJ Jourian
    http://www.youtube.com/user/trannytrent
    * Ethan
    http://www.ftmtransition.com/pictures/me/recent/recentpics.html

    At that time back in 2004-2005, they were all looking fine and young and fresh. A bit naive maybe also.

    Look at them now: they all look so old.

    Of course, we don't expect them to say "I was wrong, It was a trend...".

    And indeed, maybe they prefer to look like a 40 years old male (with a baldness pattern, a thick skin...) rather than a woman in her late 20's, who knows?

    But the point is: this journey should really be done after having taken carefully into consideration its mid and long term impacts.

    Young FTM candidates may really benefit from talking with the "old Tguys".

    The visual state of grace of transition is during the 1-2 years after first T-shot: the changes are impressive, the self-confidence is improved but then starts body decline...

  2. n response to Anon @ 10:56, I took a look at what Meiko Elias Xavier has to say on You Tube. In "Butch Lesbians vs Transmen", Meiko talks about feeling jealous and competitive of other butch lesbians prior to transition- wanting to be as butch or more butch than they were. Meiko goes on to claim this is common in the lesbian community. I have been in the lesbian community for over 30 years and I have not found this to be true. It's possible that a few young dykes may feel this way, perhaps due to insecurity and trying to figure out who they are, but this definitely does not reflect my experience of the lesbian community.

  3. DM,

    I agree. I've been in/around the Butch/Femme community for over 20 years now and the only competitiveness I've witnessed were from non Butch lesbians, and it was their issue, not the Butches in the community.

    Before trans trenders, the biggest group of female transitioners were lesbians who believed they could become Butch by taking T, instead they just became strawmen.

    Butch has ZERO to do with male/men, we're ALL woman! There only way to be truly Butch is by being the natural female you were born.

  6. WOW@G,

    The thick skin on the pics of that trans(man) look ROUGH. Do you know if this is solely from her taking T or does she have a skin disease?

    The other trans(man) obviously hasnt been on T very long despite her facial hair her femininity is still very prominent. There's hope for her.

    And despite what you think, every girl posted in the who is transitioning posts are beautiful girls.

  7. Dirt? How long does it take for you to think up snippy replies, how long does it take to think up so many negative things?

    skin disease? is that really the best you can do? You are as immature as a child.

    I bet if someone showed you a picture of a biological man, and told you that this person was a trans man, you would quickly comment on how you could see the pain, and femininity in 'her' eyes.

  10. Its a legit question Mark, because if it is from the T alone I will definitely be passing that info along. You may care little for women, I however care a lot and believe those females thinking about transitioning need to know all possible outcomes.

  12. Mark - Every trans person who does the hormones + surgeries always look at least a little unnatural or "off" physically (and I mean with clothes on.) And socially, an FtM also doesn't really stand a chance in the men's world either. Especially since transitioning doesn't solve their real problems or make them more stabile.
    It's a pity that there doesn't seem to be even one man who writes comments on this Blog.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've known and know many FTMs. Other than body dysphoria, their biggest struggle is the feeling of being incomplete. Having no male past/socialization/experiences, etc etc...

    which makes me wonder how they even rationalize the way they feel, since they don't actually have any basis of comparison

    But, ya know, whatever. Personally, I think most people transition for the wrong reasons based on what I've heard. But I guess that's up to them. You can't help people that don't want to be helped.

  14. One thing seems patently obvious from the tone of this thread: y'all are catty.

    Obviously, many behaviors are non-gendered and there is alot of crossover, but that does not extend to the absolute, and there are trends of certain gendered behaviors. One that I've noticed is that it's women who judge other women and make catty comments to each other about others. Maybe it's because you are socialized to see yourself as objects, and must turn that against others. To focus so much of your attention on the looks of ftm's is not the public service announcement you think it is, it's the unfortunate result of your marginalization as women. Your domain is smaller: it's only a subset of the larger concerns that men get to have. I've seen strong evidence of this in my social circles. Ftm's who transition get to mature as people, relax, and take on the larger issues in life: meaningful, lucrative work, family, community. The conversations we have are much different from those I've witnessed amongst women(well, lesbians), and I am glad to leave that bullshit behind. I can't imagine a bunch of grown men taking the time and energy to get online talk about the flawed looks of transmen.

  16. i agree completey Dirt. Any female identifying as an ftm should understand and know the full extent and effects T has on the body before considering starting transition. I spent 8 years trying to bury the feelings of wanting to transition, as well as a lot of counselling and work on myself and finding out who i really was. Then when i knew that my feeling of wanting to transition were not a result of any factors to do with childhood, confidence, experiences with men, women, parents, friends and everything else i discussed with counsellors. i knew that it is just the way i felt. Once i made the decision to start the transition. i did a hell of a lot of research and spoke to many long term trans guys before i even went to my doctor. So i knew the full effects good and bad. What surgery results were like both the good and bad, as well as everything else. I went into it with completely open eyes and i knew exactly what i wanted and what to expect. Where as many of these young ones might not even have a clue about some of the more dangerous outcomes T can have. The thing that worries me the most is the amount of young ones who want everything to happen so quick that they dont even go through the proper channels, and instead the purchase T on the internet that isnt even the same regulated stuff you get from the doctor, its completely different with even less known effects. I have my body regularly checked, mainly due to having many pre existing illnesses prior to transitioning, but while im at the doctors office i always make sure to have everything else checked too. The T has not affected any of my pre existing illnesses nor have i experienced any bad side effects in the year and a half i have been taking it. There are times when i dont always agree with some of the comments you make or the posting of pictures, but i do think the work you do to highlight the bad effects of T and surgeries is honourable. You are an inspirational woman Dirt.

    P.S. The work out information you are posting is really helpful.

  17. Anon @3:35 - Ya'll are girls, too. But at least you have a sense of humor.
    But men write, and generally interact, with women (including Lesbians) in a much different way than FtM's do.

  18. I am genderqueer, part of the queer community (I'm female bodied)and I actually agree with Dirt on the whole trans trend thing. It is a very real thing right now. Testosterone is a party drug in some circles I've been around. It's misused and abused, not by everyone of course, but yes, I def agree that trans trending is real and kind of scary.

    I have heard this "I am now mature" as a transman argument before.

    I am curious about what you are implying here. Are you saying that lesbians who don't transition are "immature" and in denial about their "transexuality".? Do you think all lesbians are transsexuals who cannot be fully mature until hey become "men"?

    Much more disturbing is your implication that men are "mature" while lesbian women(or maybe all women???) are immature.

    What totally breaks the sound barrier though is the "lucrative work "???? Yeah, transition so that you can pass as a male and take advantage of sexism.

    Believe me, I have worked in all male enviroments and the last adjective I would ascribe to those I worked with was mature,especially when they had to deal with a women in their privleged spaces for the first time.

    And catty??? Men can be too, don't fool yourself. Another point of interest, when men disagree, they are engaged in vigorous debate. It is socially accepted to be aggresive when they make their points. Women on the other hand have been socialized to just go along and not express what they are thinking. When they do they are assaulted with the putdown of "having a bad attitude", being a bitch or being catty.

  21. @Canadian. I have also been the sole woman in all-male work environments, including some ultra-macho ones. I can confirm what you're saying.

    Men do all the following:

    Start malicious rumors about other men they perceive as competition.

    Gossip about male coworkers' personal lives.

    Make negative comments about other men's personal grooming habits, clothing choices, and body types.
    ("I can't believe he still has that cheesy soul patch." "Heh, he really thinks that biker shit makes him look badass, instead of like a poser moron." "Dude's a fuckin' lardass, he really needs to start working out some more.")

    But for some reason, they don't get called "catty." I wonder why. Could it be...the double standard????

    ReplyDelete
  22. "Can you be any more smug and ignorant?"

    Well, I'll try. Like I said, I don't think it's your *fault* per se, it's socialized. And not all women are catty, of course. Across the board, though, the one thing that seems to be held in common is that the less a person is able to really accept their own identity and all of the implications of that, the more toxic and immature they are. I've spent plenty of time in all male spaces, come out to plenty of straight men, straight women, gay men, dykes, and the only people who get *really* catty about it are people who struggle with their own gender issues and who have considered transitioning themselves but are afraid. It's logical too-most people have no reason to feel threatened by me, and are often blown away by my ability to "pass". Secretly, some don't consider me fully male, some do. I don't care either way. But certain dykes, like many of the people on this go far, far out of their way to be disrespectful. This is behavior that speaks for itself. You are shouting to the rooftops that you aren't comfortable with yourselves.

    And when there are *so* many valid issues to discuss such as

    1)very young people transitioning
    without much thought

    2)ftm's gaining access to male privilege

    3)young ftm's having no introduction to feminism at all

    4)potential health issues

    5) people transitioning without any preparation for the experience of passing as male %100 of the time

    ....you get my point. You make yourselves seem less valid by acting like schoolyard children.

    I don't think that all "lesbians" are trans, just some. That's why the whole thing triggers you. I've met so many butches who were COMPLETELY CLEAR on the difference between themselves and ftm's. These are the coolest. It's the ones with unresolved gender issues that I avoid.

    I come here because you tell lies about ftm lives and I feel it's my responsibility to present my experience. Especially because many of you on this list have considered transitioning. I want you all to know that this list does not represent the general attitude towards ftm's in the world- only a small segment of people with unresolved gender issues who allow them to become toxic to themselves and others.

    Transitioning is an eye-opening experience and has taught me so much. It's also very humbling, and I cringe sometimes when I remember how much I used to think I knew about the world.

    And I'm 36.

    As far as "mansplaining" goes, that term doesn't really have a ring to it, does it? Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Could you come up with something more clever? I've seen you use this word several times and it always bugs me, because "mansplaining" is a real phenomenon and you could spend a little more time coming up with better wordplay.

  41. I've been on T for 1 year, 7 months, and 3 days now and I'm not going bald. If I do happen to lose some hair then so be it. That's what happens to a lot of men. I'll be 39 in 12 days and I guess if I start getting a receding hairline then so be it. I don't have a problem with it at all. If that happens and I don't care for it then I'll use rogaine. No big deal.

    I've had no bad side effects from the T. As a matter of fact before I started T I had high blood pressure, Pre-Diabetes, and sleep apnea. I don't have to take medication for my HBP now because my BP is in the normal range. I don't have to take the medication for my my pre-diabetes and I I no longer need to use a CPAP machine. My health is great now. I have no regrets since starting T. I am happier and healthier now than I ever have been before.

    Oh and yes, I am very happy. You sit and talk all this nonsense about the bad effects of T yet look at me...no more high blood pressure, Pre-Diabetes, or sleep apnea. Yeah, T can have bad side effects but only if you are not regularly going to your doctor to have blood work and what not done. I know a guy who is taking T without the supervision of a doctor. I have told him he needs to be under a doctors care but I guess he is not worried whether or not he is on a safe dose or not. I'm just saying that I have not had any bad side effects from being on T is all.

The other vitamins and supplements that I take are A multi vitamin, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Fish Oil, Flax Seed oil, B-12, B-6, Cinnamon, Apple Cider Vinegar, Calcium, D-3, Garlic, Glucosamine Plus MSM, Korean Ginseng, Whey Protein, L-Arginine, Cayenne, Cocoa Bean Extract, Green Tea with Hoodia, L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Policosanol, CLA, DHEA, Tribulus Terrestris, Chromium Picolinate, and Acai. If I workout then I also take ZMA before bed. Nothing harmful. I have researched everything that I take and had my doctor go through each new supplement that I have added over the years. I won't put anything in my body that I don't research first.

    I mean, I hear where you are coming from and all but I have done years of research on testosterone and it has only done nothing but god for me. Hell, I don't even get acne from it.

  61. I'm on a low dose of T since my T levels were naturally high due to PCOS. I'm on .25mg of T every 2 weeks. Usually a normal dose ranges from 100 mg (.5cc) to 200 mg (1cc) every 2 weeks. I know one guy on 25o mg every two weeks but then again his T level to begin with was very low and still is kinda low. I see my endo again in March to have my blood work done to check my T level, cholesterol, liver function, kidney function, etc..It will go from there.

  63. You asked about a high dose and again I am on a low dose of T. Nothing I say or do will even make you understand because you are close minded and are set in your way of thinking. No matter what anyone says you will just dismiss it and crap. Cismen, FTM's and MTF's all know you hate us and nothing we say or do will change that. You just hate men in any form. We can't help you with that one though. You are on your own there.

  66. I think she just likes the attention. She seems to want to rid the world of men, bio, FTM and whatnot. Obviously she has some really bad self-esteem issues. She probably thinks she is gonna save the world by getting rid of us but that is just her schizophrenia with borderline personality disorder talking to her.

    Obviously she has been hurt by a man in her life so she has to take it out on us all. She even attacked our significant others in one post. Who next?

    Pay no attention to her as she thrives on attention which is quite obvious. I guess negative attention is better than none. Go figure.

    Examples?

    It is pretty clear to me that as alot of the trans arguements are refuted we get responses like the ones above and responses attacking Dirt personally like the one below
    "I think she just likes the attention. She seems to want to rid the world of men, bio, FTM and whatnot. Obviously she has some really bad self-esteem issues. She probably thinks she is gonna save the world by getting rid of us but that is just her schizophrenia with borderline personality disorder talking to her."

    Interesting thing to note here is the link made betweeen questioning Ftm and "getting rid" of men and Ftm's. Why would one lead to another. This response is very similar to attacks made on feminists when they call out and analyze the more pernicous aspects of sexism and partriarchy. It seems that ANY critism is interpreted as hatred and deemed to by threatening in the extreme(ie get rid)

    Also interesting that any questioning of Ftm is linked to mental illness, to paraphrase "Any onee who disagrees with us must be crazy"

  69. "If transition actually worked, you would be living your life as any other red blooded man who could give a fuck about what some dyke on the net says, that you are here, knowing not only who I am but feel the need to comment says it all. Transition doesnt work, period!"

    Wait, transition should make bigoted, lying dumbasses less irritating? Can a physical and social process that affects few people serve to make racists or homophobes less irritating or wrong? Should I just shut up about racism because I am white and can escape it? What, exactly, is your point here? Just because I live in the world as male and receive male privilege does not mean that ignorant, transphobic boobs like you suddenly don't exist. And I have no doubt that you are more affected by a mainstream, societal fear and hatred of transsexuals than you are by any feminist qualms you might claim to have about transmen. I have nothing but compassion and support for my trans brothers who have to deal with the likes of you, and other shitbirds on this blog (blarg) who cannot accept their own identities. And I'll keep coming back here and speaking my truth until you realize that you have embarrassed yourself, overstepped your bounds, and failed to realize your true motivations before speaking.

  71. If you look at any construction site, it's not at all rare to see a Lesbian (especially Butch) working. I've never seen a FtM working anything "typically male" like construction, fixing cars, etc. I know a lot of Lesbians who do.

    I know it's hard to get the statistics, but does anybody know if there are about the same number of FtM's as MtF's?

    Male transitioners still seem to far out number female transitioner, but since females are being measured against the hyper feminine female model at younger and younger ages, the gap has been narrowed.

  75. "I've spent plenty of time in all male spaces, come out to plenty of straight men, straight women, gay men, dykes, and the only people who get *really* catty about it are people who struggle with their own gender issues and who have considered transitioning themselves but are afraid. It's logical too-most people have no reason to feel threatened by me, and are often blown away by my ability to "pass". Secretly, some don't consider me fully male, some do. I don't care either way. But certain dykes, like many of the people on this go far, far out of their way to be disrespectful. This is behavior that speaks for itself. You are shouting to the rooftops that you aren't comfortable with yourselves."

    Your first post didnt sound very mature to me, but this one, you made some very valid points. People who arent really comfortable with themselves and have their own gender issues ie dirt, bluetraveller, Dm just to name a few and some other butches, these are the people who will be resistant, dismissive, unrespectful of transmen. (note how they don't bother much with MTFs) They hate themselves, its like a jealous and bitterness thing going on. It is so obvious with people like dirt that and blue that its driving them towards insanity, lunacy and deep rage. Its almost to a point were they cant think of anything else, do anything but spill venomous rubbish on the internet about transmen.

    anon@9;05, seeing what dirt wrote and thinks of hexy, i have no sympathy for her whatsoever, apparently she is a dirt cheerleader, one of her sidekicks or used to be, she participated in transmen bashing and hating, supporting her lesbian "sisters", even when she wasn't wanted. She treated us transguys like we were here enemies and dirt and her cohorts as her bestest friends, she didnt have to be friendly to us, or be nice to us, but there was no need for her to drag us down like that. When its FTM bashing she is there cheering, when it include MTF bashing, her moods changes, she is now doing her bid of defending transexuality, like WTF, right?

    You know what my intention was all along? To stop the carneficine of bodies and the self-murder of young women and men (women especially because the FTM fad is hitting hard), because I have SURVIVOR'S GUILT, not ENVY OR HATE. And now what I've done is thought of as hate, what a twisted sick world. Grow up, girl, because if I actually hated you I wouldn't throw a shit at you, I just wouldn't care and I wouldn't say a word. You are already killing yourself, so I wouldn't need to do anything.

    Yes, I missed where it was said that he was biologically male but it doesn't make my point any less valid. Your blog is filled with hatred. (Even if you want to call it caring.)

    Like I said, you're still contradicting yourself daily. Keep it up and continue to knowingly stick your foot in your mouth.

    Since you insist he is male, that would make him a transsexual 'man' of a different sort, oh clueless one.

  81. Nothing can change his biological male status and nothing ever will. Nothing "clueless" about that, those are simply the facts.

    Anybody with half a brain is taking Calcium/Vitamin D and Omega 3-6-9 at the very least. The other stuff is rather ehh aside from DHEA, which cross-converts to sex hormones. I am not sure if that is a good idea on transition.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I think if all those suppliments are in individual pills and that person really takes that many a day, it does read a little like a satire.

    Did anyone else notice that when an MtF "transitions" they go all out, and either do it completely or don't even start. FtM's do it in a more wishy-washy kind of a way, maybe taking a little testosterone, getting some surgery, etc. sometimes seeming to enjoy being "between" genders. I've never heard of a MtF saying they would just take estrogen for awhile to see what happens, or be satisfied being between genders, whatever. I think this also shows how FtM is really just a trend.

    Men usually don't consider themselves to be anything other than male unless they're dead-set on being a "woman". It seems like an awful lot of FtM folks are less interested in being men than they are in NOT being women. (I figure this is also the reason why female "genderqueers" vastly outnumber male ones.)

    I couldnt agree more. Female transitioners seek ways in which they can escape being women, much more than they are interested in being men.

  91. So true. They are usually more interested in being a non-woman than a man, and they believe being happy when referred with male pronouns is an undoubtable sign of being male, while it's just escaping oppression - as long as they pass. This really tells everything. Also see the trans poster boy Elias Meiko Xavier for the same phenomenon. And then they pretend to be feminists?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Until what is too late???? Until someone misses their chance to transition and ends up an old, obsessed blog posting bigot like you?!?!? What right do you have to spread such hatred???????

    ReplyDelete
  93. Would you say the suffragettes were obsessed? Early feminists? Or african americans? Did the suffragettes and feminist all hate men because they wanted the right to vote? Or the right to equal work for equal pay? Or the right not to be raped? I suppose all black americans hate white americans too, because they call attention to white privilege and racism, get fucking real.

    Change is made by those who commit themselves to a worthy cause, and womens lives ARE a worthy cause. No female should HATE themselves to the pathological extent female transitioners do, and I will continue to work towards creating a world where one day that no longer happens. The only "hate" on this blog is the "hate" female transitioners have towards themselves and other women.

    No, I don't have a problem at all. I take these supplements for various reasons. I don't see how taking these supplements is such a big deal. I have always taken a lot of supplements and have done tons of research on each and every one of them.

    Thanks for posting the link to Ethan's blog! I've been searching for it for ages. He was the one that helped me realize that I'm trans. I didn't want to accept it at the time, but still his words helped me. He's amazing.

    Dirt, you have my picture up there. I'm guessing you won't take it down if I were to ask? I'm top center.

    It'd be much appreciated if you took it down.

    You have every right to voice your opinion and my photos/videos are all public and as much as I'd rather not have them posted here, I suppose you're free to do as you wish with them. I'm not even mad. Finding Ethan's blog made up for it, haha!

    Have fun gossiping,

    You'll be long and dead when transition will be stopped by society. Oh, nevermind... It'll be accepted in time just as most gays are becoming accepted in this day and age.

    Keep wasting your time obsessing while everyone else goes about their business.

  99. Dear Dirt, I was wondering if you plan to do a post about the YouTube channel called TmatesFTM.

    The reason why is because I came across the video of this young woman : http://www.youtube.com/user/AGirlThatWhistles

    It is a video audition for the next round of TMatesFTM and if you watch it, you will see the damages her very narcissistic FTM partner (his channel is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/number1alphafucker) is doing to her:
    * it is obvious this woman is enrolling TmatesFTM to please her older "boyfriend" ego
    * she says clearly she defines herself as lesbian. She lives in a small town with only one gay/lesbian bar. We can imagine the damages to her social life when the so called 23 years old boyfriend will leave her with a reputation and sexual orientation/identity to rebuild
    * finally, it is all about her boyfriend in this video not about her. She speaks like a cult member who has been touched by the light. And she is doing it at an age when people usually deserve to take time for themselves in those early adult years...

    The damages done by http://www.youtube.com/user/TMatesFTM is impressive.

    This channel promote the idea the FTM/transguy partner should be the center of the couple, the focal point of attention, that the woman should forget her own needs and trade it for more important issues like facila hair growth or the next T shot of their "man".
    It is good old mysoginy at his best and all those women they seem only to exist through their boyfriend life, moods, up and down, hair growth and it seems not to have a life of their own...

    When I look at TMatesFTM, I feel really uncomfortable. Those women are not different from the ones who are covered in islamic countries. A piercing never made you free. Having a FTM boyfriend that treat you like a dirty macho is not so cool. You do not want it from a bioguy so why are you swallowing every rude or unrespectful attitude from your partner just because he is a transguy? Do you think it does not count/it is not the same because he is trans?

    I would like deeply to thank you if you can offer us a post about TmatesFTM and if you can open a discussion about the vision of feminity this channel is promoting in order we can make our points and explain how it is a step back for feminism. :) xxx
