  1. All have now been contacted. Weird how you lump everyone together.

  2. And who gave you permisson to write about me? WTF are you calling it a trend? No one chooses to be this way, and dysphoria certainly isn't fun.

  3. You approach is definitely controversial but I love your views. Dysphoria doesn't mean that you are trans. It means you have body issues and insecurities. Taking testosterone isn't a quick fix to ending dysphoria and it is definitely a trend for most women on youtube. I also suffer from dysphoria, so I bind my chest, keep my hair short and STILL IDENTIFY AS FEMALE. I am the kind if female that I WANT TO BE. And not what society says

  4. Just a thought -- as regards clothing for women, we really aren't given much choice other than a bra which puts our boobs on display, or nothing, which lets them bounce dangerously about -- in my case, hitting small children on the head if I turn round quickly! :)

    Just thinking, why don't we have female-oriented options, other than squash them totally flat so I can pretend they're not there.......

    I think keeping your hair short isn't necessarily about dysphoria, just can't be bothered with washing/drying/combing in my case, don't see why anyone with any sense would do anything else.

  5. So sad. Donprejs is a gorgeous girl. I can't help but think most of these girls are lesbians unable to deal with being gay, and the medical establishment isn't helping.

    The 'I always felt like a boy' line is crap. I never felt like anything, I often felt dysphoric but once I reclaimed my body for my own that faded.

  6. "All have now been contacted. Weird how you lump everyone together."

    Why weird? If your point is that there IS a trend amongst young women, then you're gonna want to find as many examples of new trans transition diaries as you can.

    I'm sorry to say that to me, most just sound like someone DESPERATE to escape who they are at the moment, rather than become who they supposedly really are inside. Heck, that's pretty much the definition of being young, to be totally frank.

    Always felt like a boy, always felt like trapped in the wrong body -- yeah, same old cant! And the cult of T, the new eucharist for beleaguered females.

    I love the masculinity that I physically display with short hair, although I have been considering dreadlocks. Having short hair allows me to express androgyny and I'm able to embrace my masculinity without feeling like I have to transition. As far as binding, I agree with the need to have better options for women, in terms of bras. I find the binder to fit my needs best for now. I try to find things that helps balance my dysphoria and not just focusing on the physical. I don't reject my body parts and wouldn't dream of any surgeries. This blog is helping view things differently with gender, females and THE TRUTH ABOUT TRANS

  8. There is no such thing as feeling like a "boy". You feel how u feel. U cant label emotions and mannerisms to a specific gender

  9. "I love the masculinity that I physically display with short hair,"

    Except if fashions change and chaps start wearing their hair long (and women start wearing their hair short), then you'd be expressing your femininity by having short hair! Devils advocate me!

    Whatever short hair MEANS (I shave my head myself), I don't label it as my 'masculinity', although I do display my overt rejection of femininity by so doing. But rejecting one doesn't have to mean embracing the other for me.

    As regards undergarments, it just kind of struck me that bras etc AREN'T designed to be comfortable for women, but what DISPLAYS our supposed assets. Even sports bras, to some extent try to lift what wouldn't naturally be lifted! WHY should we want to lift our breasts anyway, which you can predict is going to make your shoulders ache! If you forget about putting them on display, then surely the only consideration is stopping them wanging about too much, hence something to hold them approximately in place, but not binding as such (plus if I could find the industrial strength construction that would be needed to flatten mine, my ribs would probably snap!).

    I tend to wear light lycra vests as undergarments, but anything too restrictive is either impossible to get on, or too damn uncomfortable!

    It's weird -- despite not wearing a bra for the last 20 years, it's not a conversation that I've had for a long time!

  10. lol etch, she's had multiple times to use my pictures as well, yet she has always by passed my stuff. I have a theory that it's because no one would have believed I was female pre supplemented T, therefore not really destroying much femininity on my part. Natural Testosterone was already ridiculous high and always had been.

  11. "I also suffer from dysphoria, so

    This is hilarious. And how different do you suppose your actions are from that of transmen?

  12. The difference between her and transmen is she identifies as female. She has the right to bind and cut her hair and still want to be 100% female. No one can judge how someone expresses themselves. If everyone were robots life would be boring.

  13. All those Transguys, pretending they don't have boobs. Acting like men. You'd think they were men or something but they're not cause they're girls!

    Also Patriarchy

    Only if you're daft enough to think that being a man or being male has to do with 'acting' like a man, or believe that men should act differently to women (or any other human being).

  15. "The difference between her and transmen is she identifies as female."

    I would beg to differ -- the real difference as far as I'm concerned is she is female and recognises it. As opposed, say, to being under the delusion that IDENTIFYING as male means anything at all.

    "This is hilarious. And how different do you suppose your actions are from that of transmen?"

    A very revealing comment. ACTIONS by themselves don't mean much -- DRESSING as what others may classify as 'male' doesn't make you any more male, OR any less female! I can fully understand why someone would cut their hair, that doesn't make you male (Although you may get MISTAKEN as a male if you do it, as I found out yet again this morning at the bus stop). I can perhaps also partly understand why someone would bind (although the possible restrictions on your breathing should a little unpleasant to me).

    The difference as regards transman, it seems to me, is they either BELIEVE they already are a man, or think that trying to dress/act/pass as a man will make them 'more of a man', and less of a female. I notice that many men share the same ideas, in that NOT looking or acting like a proper man is anathema to them.........

  16. The difference between me and a transman is simple. IM NOT NOR WILL I EVER IDENTIFY MALE. Before the t machine, there was such a thing as butch women and androgyny. Before ubber masculine women were persuaded to "just transition already", we were binding with ace bandages and expressing ourselves AND embracing ourselves. We weren't all running around trying to explain the difference between sex and gender.

  17. I disagree re: bras, there are minimizer and sport bras (Natori is a brand I like). I find it far more comfortable to be active in a bra than without, because the pain of bouncing isn't there when something is supporting and undergirding. (I'm also a larger size which probably factors into my views).

  18. "I also suffer from dysphoria, so I bind my chest, keep my hair short and STILL IDENTIFY AS FEMALE."

    Wow. That's so totally radical and awesome. I've never heard of or seen anyone like you before. Are you a unicorn? You're so special.

    People like you are the ones that like to take advantage of "masculine" privilege in lesbian communities but take none of the responsibility of actually being male in the world. Then you want a fucking cookie for being special and different.

  20. @ Anon 1:03 - what is this male 'responsibility' that these devious butch women are avoiding?

    Your entitlement speech is total projection. The definition of special snowflake syndrome is a person who expects others to bend scientific definitions in order to maintain their 'identity'.

  21. "Your entitlement speech is total projection."

    Yep, usual trans trope of trying to turn around feminist arguments and claim that we're doing exactly what we accuse them of.

    Yawn.

    "what is this male 'responsibility' that these devious butch women are avoiding?"

    Yeah, I thought that was a corker -- ooohhhh, that HEAVY burden of male responsibility that transmen are supposedly carrying.

    ""I also suffer from dysphoria, so I bind my chest, keep my hair short and STILL IDENTIFY AS FEMALE."" I thought this was an interesting and HONEST comment.

    Still puzzled by the enormous significance everyone seems to be attaching to having short hair though! Yeah, I understand the practicality of it (I've shaved my head for the past 20 years), understand the daft reactions you get, but personally, it doesn't mean that much to me in terms of supposedly being or seeking to appear masculine. I guess it does say 'not feminine' (and no dichotomy please, not feminine isn't the same as masculine), but I don't do it now for that reason, but just because its easy to maintain, looks cool (I like the shape of my skull), and feels nice.

    The state of my head isn't about gender, cos I don't do gender.

  22. @ Anon 1:03- Butches aren't male. Males can't be Butch. Butch is a female identity. And 'masculinity' is not the sole domain of men. Get that through your thick skull!
