Trans Trending-Who is Transitioning

You know what strikes me every week that I make this post?  If you actually take a moment to look at each young woman, you can see the beautiful woman that she will never become. There is not only a poignancy in that, but a tragedy, made more tragic since it is an avoidable tragedy. I also wonder how much of their "choice" to transition is about skirting and avoiding the hyper feminine beauty that is today's female beauty standard, rather than wearing their natural beauty on their own terms?

  2. I do agree: they transition because it is more hype to be trans than butch and it is certainly more valued to be a male than a butch in our society.
    And yes, it is also painful for me because I have seen friends and one of my ex-girlfriend becoming FTM.
    Of course the body masculinisation and mutilation is horrible (I did a mini depression when my ex got her lovely boobs cut off) but what is unbearable is to see a smart woman entering in this trans & queer newspeak bullshit. It looks like their world suddenly narrows to gender issues and that is all. It has killed her brain and ideas and future...
    Note: I have dated more males than women in my life and I still don't see what is male in those mutilated and hairy female bodies...

  3. As can be clearly seen in the pics, none of these girls are Butch or even butch persuasioned.

  4. ...and you can tell from the pics they are not butch how?

    ...is butch a mindset or an appearance.

    ...What should I be looking for to find out they are not butch?

  5. While I do agree with most of your opinions, I have to wonder if you're allowed to just take pictures of these people and post them on the internet without consent...
    I'm just saying they're just going to continue getting angry if you keep posting pictures of them without asking....

  6. Anon @5:22,

    Yes Dirt, for someone who claims that trans is a mindset induced by society, you seem awfully bothered about aesthetics. How boring.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I wonder to whom those women will ask for help in 5/10 years from now when they will see her body destroyed: do you have any ideas?

    I am just asking because most Tguys I know on T for 5/10 years are depressed by the decay of their body.

    ReplyDelete
  8. No idea what butch actually is so im not going in to it.
    "hype"
    Who wants hassle? as usual people thinking they know everything about me but they couldn’t be farther from the truth, bleh.
    same shit as usual, you have a right to have an opinion but please don’t ACT like you know why we as individuals do anything.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yeah, I'm the top right. One of my friends just showed me this post. First off, your narrow-minded thoughts on all of us are really ignorant. You have no idea who we even are, and you also have no right to be posting our pictures up without consent. So I will be looking into that. Also, there is a big difference between just being "butch" and being Trans. Who are you to say we aren't who we are? You're no one, Dirt. Just some spineless blogger who won't even post your own name on your article. And also to another anonymous, I don't know who these "transmen" were that you knew, but obviously they did not get the correct things done to transition if their bodies are decaying. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I know plenty post-op/post-t transmen who have been gender corrected for years and years now. and they're all WAY more happier being in the correct body. Dirt, and everyone else who agrees. Inform yourselves before you start hating on others or disbelieving. I wouldn't waste the money, or waste my time transitioning if I knew after everything I wouldn't be a way happier person. Who are you to say no to that? No one. I do what I do to inform those who'd like to know more about myself and the trans community. To help people become AWARE. If you don't agree, or don't like like it, then get your own life and stop following mine. Maybe if you were happy with your own life, you wouldn't have to feel satisfied with yourself clearly hating on others.

  10. LEAVE THEM ALONE. its youtube, they can vlog about whatever they want, and documenting there change is obv what there doing.
    i love my trans boyfriend, and your close minded and ignorant, and CLEARLY have NO idea what your talking about, being butch and trans are 2 COMPLETELY different things.
    and why is it so horrible that they wont be women? that makes no sense either, like the world is on a girl shortage or something? NO
    its a tragedy the struggles that Trans people have to go through, a constant struggle within themselves to feel happy about there body and to feel accepted by society and the fact that society or any ignorant person like yourself looks down on trans people is a SHAME. your rediculous.
    honestly this is 2011, get over yourself, people are different, people need to be accepted for who they are, theres absolutely no reason anyone should feel unhappy about themselves.

  13. Do we need more fTM "documenting changes" on Youtube? I mean, there are already a ton of information and websites available so why those people do feel the need of documenting anything? To add the 1000th video about their facial hair growth? To document once again the scars of another Garramore or Brownstein branded mutilation?

    Or is the real reason why they vlog openly is because they suffer from NPD? Afterall, they could share their transition diaries for family and friends only.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Honestly, you are all very narrow minded. I am a friend of Nikki's. I see nothing wrong with what HE is doing. He is beautiful now and will be just as beautiful in his new body. Some women are not truly the females you believe them to be, I believe that. A lot of women are just too afraid to come out and say they are not comfortable in their own body, get over it. Just because they don't want to be your god damn eye candy and another female you can fantasize about putting your dick in it does not mean they are any less of the person they "could" have been. I've never seen Nikki anything other than a guy. Even when I found out he was ftm, it was just obvious. I thought he was a guy for awhile then I wasn't sure. He doesn't strike me as a female in anyway. So. You can back your shit up and stop posting this bullshit because it's wrong. You are wrong for what you are saying and doing. Your criticism is un-need and uncalled for. They don't transition for the hype, they do it to feel comfortable in their bodies instead of feeling as if something about them is off for their whole lives. That is why they do what they do. I'd rather see my friends transition than deal with the stress and depression from feeling like they don't fit in anywhere. Their personal choices are none of your business, so stop making it your business buddy.

  15. hey anon, yeah for now it's finished. If I'm gonna be getting any more on it, I'd have to go to a really amazing shader. and yeah...we are in a constant struggle. Once again, you're being close-minded and only seeing it from one point. It's a constant struggle between our brain and our bodies. You think we want to have to go through this? That we choose this? No, but if it's who I am, and i'm someone different, then I'm gonna embrace that and be absolutely proud of myself (: Why are you so quick to disbelieve? It's REAL. stop being in denial. educate yourself, find peace, and go be happy.

  17. Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that because thousands of ftms have already documented their change, that I shouldn't document mine. Haha. It's for myself. It's for who ever stumbles upon it and it interests. I don't care who watches me change. It's interesting. And obviously I have people all around me who support that. The world around me will have to watch me change anyway. Day by day. People are hardly aware of it at all despite all these youtube videos. If you're tired of all of them then don't watch them.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Rachel, have you ever had a real male dick in your mouth sweetie? Have you noticed it feels and tastes different than a silicon prosthesis?
    Have you felt biomale muscles? Do you feel how they are different from the sissy faggot poseur FTM you met?

    Lying to all those Tguy is bad: onde day they will wake up and understand they live in an illusion.

    So if you want a male, don't be a coward my dear, find a real one!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nikki, why don't you close your channel for friends and relatives? Why do you need to show your body to the world? You suffer from NPD not GID my dear: you are just an exhibitionist who shouts out loud: "look at me, I am pretty, look at me I a FTM, look at me, at my butt, at my scras, I transition, look at my body, look, look"
    Youtube exposure is part of the transition pleasure.

  20. Wow, what a creeper. You really just proved your point. People, not even just guys, like you are really pathetic. You just made yourself look so ignorant. No one wants that. Is that how you get girls to want you? Telling them about your muscles and your dick online? Yes? You're so cool man. Ha. You don't even know the sexy women I get being trans...haha...whether I have a dick or not, I can please a woman any better than some perverted, bigoted person like you. Some people are just gay. Get over it because we aren't going anywhere.

  21. whoa anon, nikki is my boyfriend, and your REDICULOUS, honestly, not EVERY FTM is going to get a fake dick, and you dont just decide "hey i want a dick" theres alot of therepy and shit that goes into it, maybe if you knew anything about trans youd know. and OBVIOUSLY you dont, every transition is different, thats why there documenting it, HELLLO, nikki has a lot of support from his friends and family, and he wants to share his story so people like YOU can be more understanding, but clearly your just being narrow minded,

    oh and BTW, nikki is a real man, hes just like any other boy, and i know that, hello GIRLFRIEND STATUS, and iv had other boyfriends, and its the same, so you can shut the fuck up about what a REAL man is.

    i love youu nikkk<3

  22. Hey anon, have you ever heard of the term, go fuck yourself? That is disgusting that you would even suggest I would want a dick in my mouth. You are a fowl being with no heart. Get over the fact that you are a man. You are a disgrace. You never speak to a woman that way, ever. You make men look terrible by speaking like that. You fucking freak.

    Honestly, I like males, females and guess what else, I like ftm's. I'd prefer a female much more though because never has a female ever spoken to me in such a way. This is exactly what turns me away from the males, they are disgusting. Just like you and your vulgar thought process.

    I promise you, I'd prefer a male to female transgender over a "real male dick" any given day. Unlike you, there are people who give less of a fuck about sexual pleasure, me being one of them. I look for someone with quality over quantity, something you obviously can't do. It doesn't surprise me that you are narrow minded and have the brain capacity of a stink bug. They aren't very smart, now are they?

    Love has nothing to do with sexual orientation, so get over yourself you piece of shit.

  23. Anonymous person, I vlog about myself and my transition now because I want more people to be aware of the LGBT community. Is that so hard for you to accept? Others have done it, why can't I. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Why are you so consistent to say all I want is people to look at me? How do you know what I truly want? How many transition videos do I have, anon? Is that what I'm ALL about? No. Once again, you're judging and you don't even personally know me. Why does it even bother you so much that people do/will watch me transition? (: I personally don't mind, and that's all that actually matters. Not you, hiding being your own words.
    ahaha you all make me laugh. silly people... thank you so much for this. Reminding me why there's still hate in the world...
    There are worse people out there you could be spewing your hatred on.
    If any of you people had your own lives, you wouldn't be blogging and hating about MINE or these other people. Get over how I live my life.

  24. @Makayla, if you really loved him, you would have been on TMatesFTM. Otherwise, no you don't date a male, a real one but a masculinised female body. Don't fool yourself: you will never get sperm so kids from him and you will have to get fucked by an anonymous donor to have some...
    You are just leaving in a fantasy: wake-up my dear.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Rachel "I like males, females and guess what else, I like ftm's." so we agree FTM are sort of in between freaks: not women anymore, never a man but a masculinised female body who likes to be called by males names?

    ReplyDelete
  26. No, I don't agree with you in any way, shape or form anon. FTMs are males just not there yet. They are males none the less. You on the other hand, are a pussy hiding behind an anonymous name who can't man up and just get over the fact that they are in no way a female. Get over it and yourself. You sit here and cry over what you can't have because you can't get it anyways. Dumb ass.

    I feel so sorry for you. I really do. No female will ever want someone who thinks the way you do, they may not see it at first but when they do, they'll peach out on your ass.

  29. Anon, I'm the furthest person from a virgin. I just hold near and dear to my heart that I'd rather have love than lust because I've tried the whole lust thing. It doesn't quite work out for me, I find it to be disgusting. I'd rather someone love me than fuck me. Maybe you'd be happier that way if you tried it instead of go at people who are happy with themselves just because you can't be.

  32. Darling, you can have love+grea fuck all in the same person and for a lot of normal women, in a biomale. Go find a therapist really. You seem to like masculinised body but you do a strange link in your mind between biomale and fuck only, between FTM and love. Some FTM are morons and worse than biomales emotionnaly...

  33. By the way, Rachel, I am a bisexual 40 years woman who dates FTM, biomales and women and I can tell the difference between the 3.
    You seem to be a typical 20 something who can articulate 2 words , thinks she masters everything but in the same time is not able to live on her own as an adult and has not built a life experience yet. Thanks for your freshness but go seek a therapist 'cause you date those FTM for the wrong reasons ;)

  34. FTM are just toy boys to me. I don't respect them because they don't respect themselves.

  35. Anon,

    Rachel is your average tranny chaser, she has fetishized the female trans body, which sadly hurts both her and especially the female transitioners she's using to exercise her emotional issues. There is no point in insulting her, she clearly has done that enough to herself and those she claims to "love".

  37. "in total amazement at the beautiful men they will become".
    No, they will never become males but they wll have a mascuinised female body, prosthesis in their pants all their life, to use STP, to have scars preventing them to remove their T-shirt on the beach, small women hands and feet, to be on T and so to destroy their liver, to experience emotional up and down each time a potential partner will be attracted by their outerself and will get away once the secret is unwrapped...
    An happy life.

  41. It makes me so sad to see this. I hope that they will still grow up to be beautiful and proud women. I hope that they will realize they are making a mistake, that they can live their lives without dependence on surgeries and drugs, and that they can live free of gender stereotypes. Some of these young women are still in the early stages- hopefully they will turn away from the trans fad before more damage is done.

  43. I call it a fad and a trend because that's exactly what it is. There is no way this many young women are "trans". No way. Besides, I have yet to hear anything remotely resembling a good explanation for what it means to feel "male"(or "female" for that matter), or how someone "knows" they are "in the wrong body." And the cure for depression is not transsexual surgery.

    ReplyDelete
  44. "Some women are not truly the females you believe them to be, I believe that. A lot of women are just too afraid to come out and say they are not comfortable in their own body, get over it. Just because they don't want to be your god damn eye candy and another female you can fantasize about putting your dick in it does not mean they are any less of the person they "could" have been. "

    Rachael- This whole idea that you expressed here- that females who are uncomfortable being sexualized eye candy are therefore somehow "male", is what a lot of us are trying to fight against.
    The fact that a female does not want to be looked at "as a woman", does not want to shave and pluck and dress a certain way, does not want to be a passive partner in love making, does not want to be a sex object- does NOT make her "male". It makes her a female who needs to be strong against the tide of female-hatred that is inflicted on every girl from the moment she emerges from her mother's womb.

    Rather than encouraging your partner to enshrine her female self hatred into a shortened lifetime of drug dependence and surgeries you should be loving and encouraging her to live proud as the female she is and will forever be.

  45. I'm transitioning because it feels right for me, I identified as male before I even knew that I was female, I was 2 and told my mum in a conversation that I was a man and she told me this when I told her I was transitioning before telling her she had never mentioned this discussion.

    I lived life as a lesbian and enjoyed the lifestyle, I can't say I didn't but I always knew I was male, even though I know I will never be like a bio-male totally physically, I can accept this and am happy being me at last.

    I dont wear a packer or use an stp cause I dont want to and dont feel the need to, I am keeping my clit as I dont feel I need a dick and my partner likes what I have already so that suits me plus I am rather fond of it myself and don't feel the need to change it even though I understand that some people do.

    I am having the boobs removed as I never like them and always felt like they were an alien object attached to my body, this is how they made me feel.

    I accept that I will have a scar but to have the freedom to be me, is worth every second of what I have to go through to feel complete even if feeling complete means having to remove the breasts I was born to produce as a person who was born biologically female.

    I don't really fit into the trans community online even though I make the odd transition video, I just fit into life in general and that is how it has always been.

    My family and friends have always seen me as male and love me for who I am and for that I feel blessed.

    I have always been muscular even as a woman, I had a very male looking body muscle wise, and hope the body I get through T will be a decent one with hard work and effort but time will tell on that.

    All in all, I am still me, the same person I have always been inside but now I have the chance to become the man I am on the outside albeit dickless but hey shit happens.

    I accept that some people find it hard to understand why people like me do this, but for one second, I ask you to look past my physical appearance and see who I am as a person, judge me if you will and thats fine, but the truth of the matter is this, I will still continue the change as I am living my life not anyone else and this the right choice for me.

    I have butch lesbian friends and yes when I first told them they looked hurt and shocked as if I was deserting the lesbian lifestyle they had known me in, but then as time has moved on they accept me for my change and realise I am still the person they knew, the only difference is that my outer appearance has changed but I am still the person who was there for them when they needed me and still the same person who made good cups of coffee for them when we sat and chatted.

    So how about instead of looking at just the physical change, see the people we have become and get to know us for who we are now, as most people never knew us before the change.

  46. DM, it IS possible that that many people are trans. Just like how about 1 out of 10 are gay. Also, depression is a symptom of untreated transgenderism. Transitioning wasn't meant to be fun or a trend. It is very emotional and changes almost everything in your life. This is for bettering youself though. How can transmen feel good as women if they weren't women to begin with?
    Please get to know some trans people before you start hating on us for just being who we are. That is called intolerance and it is not accepted by most people.

  47. The trans community in general prove repeatedly that transitioning doesnt "cure" depression anymore than it "cures" body dysphoria.

  48. Yes, I do know trans people, and no, I do not hate trans people. I have known a number of trans folks I really like, as well as others whom I didn't know quite as well who seemed to be OK people. I can like people and not necessarily agree with everything they choose to do. I simply do not believe that "transition" is an actual need for these young women, and I observe that it is definitely a current trend/fad among certain groups of young women (not so many young men seem to be trans trending). In fact, my daughter was almost taken in by this trend last year. I think the majority of these young women could address their dysphoria issues in other ways. At the very least, they should wait until they are older and have tried other methods of dealing with their problems.

  49. "lesbian lifestyle".
    There is nothing like lifestyle when it comes to sexual orientation. The fact you think being homosexual is a lifestyle is creepy.
    People are bi or homo or straight at birth. There is nothing like a straight or homosexual lifestyle except for gay party goers of the circuit.

  52. and dirt you prove repeatadly that your just as insecure as any one else by your harsh judgements... maybe JUST MAYBE your pushing this "trend" as people are searching for acceptance and as the trans community are there and welcome you as you are HRT or NOT we care we listen we support were not putting down one community to gain "fame" or "attention" or "power"

    maybe offer ways to love ur self?
    people are seeing how happy some of us move on to be and how much more we achieve within our selves so they think it will help them..

  53. @Anonymous.. I know being homosexual or whatever is not a lifestyle but I was refering to when I was younger and on the gay scene which is.

    I mean what really bugs me and I find creepy are people who use the name Anonymous to spout about stuff and don't have the courage to put their real name... and hide behind a mask like you have done.

    At least Dirt has the courage to let the whole community see who she is, and even though I may not agree with all she says, she does raise some interesting points which many feel they would like to ask but fear the ridicule and bullying which could ensue by asking such questions.

    As an FTM, there are some things within the Trans Community and Lesbian Community I find strange, and know if I ever posed such a question would either be ridiculed, shunned or bullied for asking, for example:

    Why do some FTM's go with men after they start transitioning, if they liked men before why change,I know this is sexual orientation but this baffles me and many others I know but fear asking the question. The same goes for MTF's who go with women and become a lesbian instead of being a hetro guy.. why????

    Also why do some Lesbians wear packers??? me and my butch lesbian friends have discussed this and we can't understand why..

    Even though I fail to understand these choices, I still respect the fact that the individual has chosen them as they are right for them, but if you pose questions like this, many in the LGBT community get up in arms over a simple question.

    So I know that I may get a barrage of crap for writing the above, but these are some of the things which behind closed doors in the real world are what many of us wonder about but fear asking and maybe the pack mentality of some in the LGBT community needs addressing.

  54. All of these early comments in this thread are really telling. As a adult reading them, anyone should be able to tell that these are still very much children. I do not even have to go and look up their pics or videos. Just in how they are writing here and expressing themselves gives light to the fact that these people are waaaay to young to be making such radical and possible permanent changes to their bodies. I do feel sorry for them, but just we have to understand that as adults- they are being just what they are, inexperienced in life- kids.
    We cannot change their opinions that in their world, they are always right.
    It's sad. It's sad that there seems to be a real lack of role models for these young women to look up to. I get what many of them are saying/feeling.
    Time and time again I read the exact same childhood stories/feelings that I too experienced.

  55. Before the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving was formed, driving while drunk could get you a slap on the wrist and not much more.

    The gender trending movement that is butchering young women needs a Mothers Against movement that will work with doctors, legislators, policy makers, therapists, and families to end this destructive trend forever. These young women do not have the brain development to fully understand the long term consequences of their actions. Their cult is making it worse and the T further confuses their thinking patterns.

    Adults must step in to stop this carnage.

  59. You're all dumb as fuck if you think they're doing it for a "trend". No one would do this just for the fad of it. Ignorant people. Most of them are well over 20 years old. You act as if they have not lived. Stupid ass people...therapists would not give them the testosterone to change if it wasn't a real deal. They don't just do it all themselves you know. There are highly trained psychologists who know what's right. You all, are not. You're all uneducated gay haters. Dirt, you look like an old butch yourself. Judgmental much? So are you...
    you'd think of all people a fellow lgbt would support another. You people act like trans people are not real. The fuck is wrong with you guys?

  60. All the haters are 40 year old women who obviously have no lives but to hate. What losers haha. You hate the trans community yet your entire blog is dedicated to them. Why not write about yourself? Do yourself justice instead of looking like another uneducated blogging fool? At least these young adults are doing what they know will make them happy. Instead of calling yourself dirt and portraying yourself as some old woman hating on younger kids, maybe make a blog about how to find happiness, since obviously you have not yet found it. I hope you find peace some day!

    "You're all dumb as fuck if you think they're doing it for a "trend". No one would do this just for the fad of it. Ignorant people. Most of them are well over 20 years old. You act as if they have not lived. "

    again your lack of maturity screams through your comments.

    Once you are older you will realize how immature and little you knew of yourself at 20 years old- much less 25! Omg for shame that there are older people who have lived and experienced life prior to you!

    I am a adult woman 35- who can still 100% of the time pass as a young man if I so choose. Don't act like people like me have no clue how it is to feel as if we were born in the wrong body.

    Some of us just decide that it's better to fight the preconceived notions of what being a woman should look and be like. Instead of cutting up our bodies and injecting ourselves with a foreign substance.

  64. no one is 'outing' anyone here. um wake up young people- the internet, it's like available to all! and when you put something out there and make it public, you are outing yourself.

  65. Actually, once I get around to starting my video blog, I'm making it as private as possible so just my friends and family can keep contact with me. I don't live locally to any of my close family, it's going to be an important way of keeping communication and not becoming a stranger.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but you can't accuse me of having NPD at all, I guess you'll have to find someone else for your malicious little parade. I forget how you like to tar every FTM with the same angry, resentful brush.

  66. Wow!! Skyler I said pretty much the same thing a little while back and was accused of providing an excuse similar to what rapist would use.

    Bottom line for me with FTM's, is I do think it is a trend. I think many of these women, if they live to be 40 will have a lot of regret and even more mental issues than they do now.
    There was a person who Identified as Butch when she started posting on youtube and as she went on, she starting throwing the idea of trying "T" around. She stated that you never see an example of Butch women on T.V. or in movies unless they are the butt of a joke, but trans is represented. Even the "L word" skipped over butch opting for dominant and girly, and went with trans.
    My point here is to say, apparently bio males and society as a whole, can better accept trans men rather than Butch women.
    As for the anon who stated Dirt looks like "an old Butch", lol she looks like a woman in her 40's who happens also to be Butch. Here's a question, is it possible to "out" people who have already "outed" themselves? Maybe it's "more outing" them?

    Hahaha testosterone is a natural substance even for women! "On average, an adult human male body produces about ten times more testosterone than an adult human female body." So it makes it, even if it makes it less than a male. Retarded lesbian whore! Learn about your body. Maybe you should cut out your brains.

    Hi Anon @March 23, 2011 5:50 PM

    Not I! I started testosterone in 2002, and after chest surgery in 2005 and hysterectomy in 2008 the depression I'd suffered with since I hit puberty at 10 lifted.

    My body is amazing - it no longer feels like a restrictive shell, rather, it is me and I am it. My body isn't perfect - no one's is, but my minor dissatisfactions are "normal" (e.g. my belly's a bit too big).

    The relief from finally being comfortable in myself is wonderful, and at last I can get on with taking part in society rather than wanting to die.

    Um everyone knows that all humans produce testosterone. The fact remains that it IS foreign to women's bodies to have this much human produced in a money making pharmacy company- T injected into a woman's body.
    Your comment- name calling "retarded lesbian whore"- displays clearly your hatred of lesbian women- and really women in general. Must make it super hard to love the woman in you.

  76. I've been on T for 8 years. My chest has been corrected.I have no further desire for plastic surgery because I understand that I am human- not perfect. If anything, I'm more at peace with my body as it is-with flaws and everything.
    I want to know why the women in my life are happy to be women, regardless of their presentation, and you all are not. I want to know why many of them CAN explain what it feels like to feel female and you all can't. I want to know why so many posters here are full of hatred, when the intent of the blog purports to be about care.

  80. Those kids are a shame for real trans people with real issues and who in opposite to them do take years to figure out if they "should do it". Those kids go for transition just for the grace it gives them during 2 years and then they become bald ugly grotesque creature as close as a male than a hairy female with mutilated boobs can be.
    I have compassion. A lot.

  83. Suppose we made the same comment about butch women – "If you actually take a moment to look at each young woman, you can see the beautiful woman that she will never become."

    This isn't a discussion about transitioning or gender identity. It's a discussion about appearances, and as such, is about that deep – not much more. It's funny...we're actually judging these young men in transition by the same patriarchical beauty standards we condemn if others apply them toward women.

    My most recent ex-girlfriend (I'm female) is MtF female. Born male, transitioned in high school. Because she transitioned before puberty, she passes 100 percent. No one knows. I was shocked when she told me.

    She looks so femme that women fought over her at the bar. These same women, incidentally, do not count transwomen as real members of their community – opting instead to view them as members of the patriarchy taking over women's spaces. These women who fight over my ex-girlfriend, who from head to toe meets movie-star standards of femininity in America, would have her banned from Mitchfest in seconds if they knew her chromosomal makeup was XY.

    Do chromosomes make the woman (or man)? Or is it brain? Ironic, those who choose the former are the first to cry foul when they're mistaken for the wrong gender in public.

  86. "Suppose we made the same comment about butch women – "If you actually take a moment to look at each young woman, you can see the beautiful woman that she will never become."

    This is entirely irrelevant. Butch women ARE the women they became because they have changed nothing biologically to be who they are.

    "This isn't a discussion about transitioning or gender identity. It's a discussion about appearances, and as such, is about that deep – not much more. It's funny...we're actually judging these young men in transition by the same patriarchical beauty standards we condemn if others apply them toward women."

    The "judgement" you speak of would not occur if these changes are "skin" deep. The fact that transitioners are claiming that transitioning changes their physical bodies to match "what they are mentally" is what is being questioned, it is not soley based on how they look and the critique is not based on partriarchal stands but exactly the opposite.

    The lastest arguement from transitioners revolves around minimizing what transitioning involves and implies while at the same time demanding society accomodate them in terms of civil rights laws and various sweeping social changes. Sound like they want it both ways: The accomodation without the probing questions depending on which audience they are addressing.

    To those who minamize and say that they should have the right to do what they will with their bodies, does that hold for other things like abortions for the sole purpose of sex selection? I hear it is big in China and India. Transitioning is akin to that practice with the same results.

    You, too, can write using complete sentences and expressing coherent thoughts. You simply opted not to.

    It's rather misogynistic to presume that because I write coherently, I'm male. You want our gender to be taken seriously? Ditch your lowered expectations first.

    Then why does the anti-trans community claim time and again that FtMs transition because they can't bear the way women are treated in American society and MtFs transition because they want to use the patriarchy to acquire access to spaces traditionally occupied by women only? I question the patriarchy because it is a theme common to this discussion in various lesbian circles (thankfully, none in which I involve myself).

    At any rate, I've never found my ideals to mesh with the lesbian separatist movement. I prefer spending time with other women who want every gender to have a voice in the discussion. Not everyone agrees, and that's fine. To each her own.

  93. Lesbians bar are for everyone? Are you kidding me? Lesbians bar are for women who want to be together without male identified people around...
    The reason why this guy (and all other trans commenters here) wants to have access to lesbians bar is because he is (they are) unable to attract a straight woman in his bed...
    Proof in the pudding: his gf on TMates in her intro vid says she is lesbian and his -ex (cf previous post) is also lesbian.

    This transmale is a lesbo chaser...

    The so called malehood of transguys is just a performance of maleness played in safe place like LGBTQI centers or in lesbians bars where they know they will find compassion from the queer crowds and will use their "male identity" to excuse their dominant or rude behaviors...

    Those transguys, the straight ones, are too sissy to go out and play in the real male world.

    The fact you say the place is trendy confirms the trendsetter status he is seeking from his transition...

    This 'guy" is as male as Tarja Halonen.

  94. "This transmale is a lesbo chaser..."

    Indeed: he has not masculinised his body yet. After one year on T, no work-out, still women fat and curves, probably no hystero, yes he has the body of someone who tries not to repulse too much lesbians.

    Do you have any proof? This guy discloses his whole privacy online, his scars, his sexual orientation, who he dates, the evolution of his 3 poor facial hairs...He has a blog, a flickr site, a photo gallery on IRC, a youtube channel, probably a FB page somewhere...

    So who needs permission? Some transguys do not seek for such a high exposure.

  97. Oy. FTM here. Hate on me all you want, but the fact is this is not a fucking trend. I knew I was trans before I even had any knowledge that it was possible, apart from a single news article I once found about a trans woman. Yes, I plan to get chest surgery. No, it is not 'mutilation'. Get your bigoted opinions the fuck away from my body, it's mine and not yours, so fuck your attempts at policing me. If it was socially acceptable to have visible tumors on your stomach or side, and you wanted yours removed because you hated it, would you want other people harrassing you about it and telling you that you're mutilating yourself by getting it removed, that it's part of you and it's not causing you any [visible] harm so why would you even think about getting rid of it?
    Same fucking thing.
    Also, I have NEVER claimed to be a lesbian. There's no 'betrayal of butch culture' or whatever the fuck you want to call it because I have always been pansexual.
    And not all of us decide to get bottom surgery. Personally, at this point I don't plan to mostly because I don't enjoy the idea of scalpels going anywhere near sensitive tissues. But that's just me. Some guys do want it, some don't.
    For you females, if you grew up, went through puberty and all that jazz and STILL didn't have breasts, would you not be distraught, bothered? It's like that. It's like the most visible marker of your gender isn't there and because of that people will constantly question it.
    I know many men who have transitioned and it's definitely not this generation alone, considering one of them is the Dean of Graduate Studies at the university I attend, and another is a respected counsellor and sexologist.
    Fuck you and your bigoted opinions, and try actually learning FACTS.

  98. Also, in reference to a comment I saw about angry posts being the result of a 'testosterone-addled' brain or however it was phrased, I am not on T. I am also a science student in university and am planning to go into medicine.
    So suck on that, those of you who thing that it's all a 'teenage rebellious phase' or whatever. Maybe if you do something worthwhile with your own lives you can stop ranting about ours.
