I must admit that I am curious here, Dirt. When you are sifting through all of this, do you happen to run into nearly as many younger male-to-females?
I just watched a bunch of these videos, and ones made by friends of the posters- pretty depressing- and the encouraging ('hey bro, nice facial hair dude, so on) comments break my heart, I feel so helpless, it's in my nature to be protective of girls and women I guess...
was lead to this one: http://www.youtube.com/user/DrunkenLullaby52absolutely shocking, the youth of this one
This is Blue Traveler's sister here, NOT HER, because she's against what I'm saying.Here's the deal:If you post something on the internet, it's your problem.If underage FtMs get their faces here it's their problem, because they posted their vids on the web.IF YOU GET YOUR FACE HERE, IT'S YOUR FAULT, because YOU posted it ON THE INTERNET.If someone else finds it and posts it somewhere else, well, that's just part of how the internet goes, THEY CAN DO IT.And this is also a message to the people who complain about this issue, you guys should learn that this is mainly those kids' fault, who just can't keep their narcissism off the internet.Because, oh golly, I HATE MY LOOKS SO MUCH, I'M GONNA POST THEM ON A PLACE WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE THEM!!AND NOW, I'M GONNA GET "T" BECAUSE IT'S GONNA MAKE ME A TROO MAN(even if I am underage).I support this blogger ALLLL the way, she changes my views on this issue more than any other place.Remember, if you post something on the Internet, you will NEVER get it back.This should be a good lesson for you.Peace out.
Hex, I dont sift. I search "ftM" with a "this week" as a relevance. Every week new girls, takes all of about 10 minutes. And given I search "ftM", I only see females.dirt
Mouse, These young women encourage this behaviour of each other, it helps to make them feel "sure" about their "decision", especially when their gut tells them differently.dirt
BT's Sis,Well we've all seen over the years some person losing their job over something they posted on the net. Just because it was posted from the privacy of your own home, once you make it public, you no longer own it.dirt
If you subscribe to the belief that transmen are not men but rather deluded women, how can you also make a case that they should be excluded from women's spaces? Aren't they just malformed women?
For the record, I still agree that once you put something on the internet it's fair game!If you don't want it in places you don't want them to appear, simply don't post it.And since I'm on it, if you are so dysphoric, why put your image all over youtube?When I was dysphoric, it was the last thing in the world I'd have done.
Anon@2:53,If they have detransitioned, embrace their female selves regardless of what they have had done to their minds/bodies in the past, then, yes definitely!dirt
Dirt, I have asked this question a few times, but you never post my comment, yet I will ask again:What is the educational value of putting people's pictures here? How come you feel it is necessary?
Anon@3:42,The question has been asked and answered a multitude of times. The proof is in the pudding.I would question more why this group feels the need to live their lives on youtube.dirt
1. you are a fucking asshole. 2. I hope you die. 3. I can't wait until you die.4. stop bashing the entire community you assholish bitch. FUCK OFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!
The single most worrying thing of this trans youth is that it's overly represented on the FTM side.The absence of "break-the-mold" female role models (or female role models period), the voracity of the trans community to fagocitate every single non-conforming individual as trans, the devaluement of female bodies and the glamorous status of androgynous males today, both in music and popular fictions, may be causes.I don't think many of these youngsters grasp how dangerous the hormonal path is, and how gender is basically an illusion, even if one that persists very well. If you are a female-bodied, "male-brained" individual for example, then you are simply that. No need for hormones unless you are really that desperate.Then again, it might just be me, but I see "gender" as a very ridiculous detail, not unlike being brown-eyed.
okay for the person who posted Kaden (drunkenlullaby52) hes over 20 years old..
[Hex, I dont sift. I search "ftM" with a "this week" as a relevance. Every week new girls, takes all of about 10 minutes. ]Somehow, I found it hard to believe they would continue to file all of their videos under 'FTM' with how much complaining has been going on about you.
Dirt you do know that alot of the people you post up are underage, isn't there some law your breaking? What happens when someone goes to your house and beats your ugly ass?
[Dirt you do know that alot of the people you post up are underage, isn't there some law your breaking?]No, otherwise there would logically be some law that they were breaking by posting their picture on the Internet in the first place.[What happens when someone goes to your house and beats your ugly ass?]Everybody is welcome to disagree with Dirt's viewpoints online, and her protesters have the same freedom of speech she does. When you start threatening her with or attempting to carry out physical violence on her, you and I have issues. If I saw Dirt being assaulted by one of you, I don't have to think twice about who I'd be helping. I don't give a fuck what she has said, we do not beat people up for having an opinion. That kind of attitude is barbaric, and runs counter to disproving her points. That is to say, it is you being self-defeating.I must add that it does kind of bother me to see FTMs falling so fast into the trap of male socialization. Though it seems you aren't quite getting the full lessons yet, because it is considered unmanly by any gentleman to commit violence against a woman. Since many of you belong to that gender now, you may want to take note of that. If I had seen you openly smacking on a lady back in the day and took you as a man, I would have stepped into that without a second thought.
Hex, I thought you introduced yourself as an ftm? But your profile says Female?
Know this, what makes us perfectly human is the measure of our imperfection! God gave us 100% unadulterated free-agency, every persons birth right. So much so one is free to hate. It could be said this came from that time when Satan raised the question and God responded giving us and not him what he so wanted. As he suffers watching us with what he wanted as we suffer and triumph with it. this could be purely fictional, but no one has the right to control and extinguish that free-agency! Be free!
@hexydezimal 6:45 PMI do not agree with what dirt is doing, but i strongly agree with the person @6.45pm and another person who mentioned that extremely dyphoric people do not post themselves all over the internet to be admired by other people.Its such a shame that fellow transmen are all over the internet glamourising this medical condition. I would think most people know by now that dirt if "onto" them, yet they still feel this craving to publicise themselves, sounds like attention seeking to me. Its a free world, but most of FTMs on youtube do not really need to be on youtube, its not like they are really contributing to the trans community with their facial hair update or whatever.A tiny few however are really helpful.i dont know what the situation is in US, but in the UK where i live official numbers of MTFs who seek surgery & hormones are still 3 times as high compared to FTMs who seek the same. In terms of age, younger MTFs are rare, you can blame the sexist culture on this, "boys" are not allowed to be "girls".
Yer so fucked. PS bottom left has been on talk shows and such. He's not new. You should probably stay on top of your bashing if you would like to be a successful perezhilton. PPS I'm reporting you to the internet police in having your blogspot removed so you never become as big as perezhilton. And I mean public wise - you're triple his size. Did you used to get bashed now you have to bash others? You're soooooo cool. I hope one day my kids are like you. Oh wait but then I would be breeding hate and that's not nice. You were once bullied don't bully others.
"Dirt you do know that alot of the people you post up are underage, isn't there some law your breaking? "If they are underage, why do are they allowed to publish every hair grow on Youtube in the first place ?Everytime Dirt is posting photos from YouTube, people are upset and I just don't get it: if we tell and show in detail your life on a mass media like Youtube, why on earth are you complaining about having your image publicly available ? Why not creating a private Youtube channel for your friends ?All those kids are looking for a sort of fame or recognition by posting on Youtube. I bet 70% of their decision of transition was made because they can look different and want the public fame it gives on Youtube or in their local community (like in "look I am so proud to be the only trans in Nowhere, Oklahoma") so why do they complain like babies ?
LMAO, looks like looney FTMs are making more things upEven if these girls are underage, THEY put their faces on the internet, there is nothing "illegal" about reposting pictures (that are not x-rated or edited at all btw)
Mikey, we both know you nor any other ftM is going to come to my place. I'm not some delusional little girl playing dress up in daddy's clothes, I'm a grown Butch woman who has been around the block more than once.dirt
i'm not sure how many of these young ftm's are in any kind of 'official' numbers- at least here in nyc many kids are getting testosterone by underground methods (and having 't parties' where they shoot themselves up, what a horror)i was under the impression that 'hexydezimal' is a mtf?

The Munchausen correlation to transsexuality is an interesting one Dirt.
I do not necessarily agree with what Dirt is doing here either. However, it is not much different than viewing their separate accounts with her commentary underneath them. Insecurity and self-doubt often plague the average transsexual more than their dysphoria alone; with that being the case, it should come as no surprise that many are seeking affirmation over the Internet. [I'm reporting you to the internet police in having your blogspot removed]Are the cyber police on their way?[and having 't parties' where they shoot themselves up, what a horror]The thought of making testosterone into some kind of party drug doesn't sit well with me at all.
thanks loretta for the address. now i can spread my christmas cheer to dirt!!!DIE DIRT DIE
The comments on this blog (made by the angry transmales) and all the transmales pictures here with their youtube video channels are the living proof of this theory (http://site.despair.com/blog/2009/06/03/two-timely-new-tees/) : social networks are the focusing point of narcissism, stalking and attention disorder...:D !
Usually teen fads die out fast when the older folks take them up, so here's an idea: maybe a bunch of us who are middle-aged could make our own YouTube parody videos. I could borrow my kid's geeky black rimmed glasses, put on a dumb-looking baseball cap, maybe a Hawaiian shirt like Weird Al Yankovic would wear, and go "Yo, Bro's, Elvis here with the T report"--
the thing about these kidsit seems to meis that their goal is not to be maleas if they could know what that meansbut rather just to be 'trans'i think there needs to be a new name for this behavior
@DM -- ROFLMAO.
I am ftm and probably one of those "Trans betrayers" someone mentioned in another post. I have videos on youtube I won't lie about that. I posted them because I found that I looked at other people's testosterone benchmarks to be useful as I started my own transition and I hoped to do the same for others. I do not encourage anyone to transition. I have doubted certain people that I know when they came out as trans and advised them against transitioning. I completely support dirt's right to post these pictures and everything else she has to say on this blog. I check this blog because I half expect to see my own picture up here one day. I look young. I am almost 20 but have been on testosterone for a year and have been transitioning since I was 17. I have no regrets. I do appreciate dirts perspective on trans issues though. Just trying to let everyone as well as dirt know that not every ftm is a lunatic who wants her dead.
To Carson the 'not young' 20-year old ftm,Is it possible that the testosterone itself is what makes you think that you're doing the right thing?Oh, I don't think this will be printed but it's something I wonder about.
I'm disgusted at this. Not you dirt, but the responses. I'm ftm and I would never think to hurt someone for expressing their opinion. If there's one thing being trans has taught me, its that.Maybe I can explain a little of what these videos are.They are made not for the public, but for friends and others going through the same thing as a way to support each other.I can say definitely as one of these young trans men that this isn't a trend. I did not know what being trans was until a few years ago, and yet I wore boys clothing all my life. When I was a small child the thing I wanted to be the most when I grew up was a boy.I never had any girl friends, I only wanted to play with other boys. I remember when I was very young I got a barbie for my birthday. I immediately gave it to my sister and starting playing with trucks. There was no pressure, no trend. In fact, I was pressured to be a girl, not a boy. But I still (as a young child with no real concept of gender or "trends") did these things. With no outside influences. Because I'm not a girl succumbing to a trend. I'm me, and that is a man. Not a girl.
Anon@4:20,Hun, you are exactly why I blog. You arent a "man", you are a female under patriarchy. Clothes dont make the man, nor the women, our mothers wombs do.dirt
Dirt, your "mother womb" doesn't make you a woman. Your concept of being a woman does. If someone is born without a uterus, that doesn't mean they're not a woman. You place so much emphasis on ONE body part. WOMEN ARE MORE THAN A FUCKING UTERUS. And it's misogynistic of you to reduce women to that.
Anon@4:20. Lots of girls wear boys' clothes exclusively, or would if there were allowed to do so. Why? Girls' clothes tend to be pink and frilly, despite the fact that not every girl cares for this. Lots of girls have no interest in dolls, and prefer to play with trucks, legos, capguns, etc., etc., etc. Lots of girls have only male friends, because most of their fellow girls have been steered into the Barbie corner by their parents, teachers, and peer groups. Lots of girls have wished they were boys, because girls have a very limited range of socially-approved things they can do and be. Even today. You don't have to have a concept of "gender" or "gender identity" to be affected by this. It's in the air we breathe. None of the stuff you're describing makes you male, or trans. As Dirt said above, it makes you a woman in a sexist society.
Anon@5:50,First, my mothers womb DID create me and created me a female.Are we to believe that your mother's womb didnt create you?Second, nowhere has anyone said females arent more than their uteri. dirt
To elizabeth, I'm not saying that I'm not young, I know that I am young, but I personally am glad that I can live almost my entire life the way I want to, as male. Obviously it is entirely possible that the testosterone is altering my brain to make me feel that I am doing the right thing. I cannot be partial on that front. All that I know is that I feel like myself and have since I started testosterone.
"Your concept of being a woman does [make you a woman]." Do you really believe this? Seriously? Does your concept of being a tree make you a tree? Maybe your concept of being a marmoset makes you a marmoset.
Anon @5:50. Dirt was not saying, "A woman is a woman because she has a MOTHERWOMB and can have BAYBEEZ." She was saying that a woman is a woman because she's born that way, i.e., she was created female inside her mother's womb. (Dirt, correct me if I've read you wrong.) In other words, women do not make themselves female by thinking Woman Thoughts or "having a concept of themselves as women." (Whatever the hell that would be -- "Gee, I feel like a Vagina-American...gonna get me some nail polish today.")
Dirt @ 6.41 if you're talking about what happens in the womb there are so many different factors.Also why do you continually ignore the science that is there in favour of transsexuals. The "neuron numbers" one is not the most recent, there has been another since. I'm unsure it's worth linking you though.I would think it would make sense, in an argument as to whether transsexauls really have a case to ask people who actually have studied this for a living, not self elected "queer theorists". I am unsure why you have such a problem with science. I also have no doubt that like the creationists and global warming "skeptics" you will favour a minority of scientists that agree with you, because they're somehow "Oppressed"(which is never proven).
csn,The only "scientific" proof of the trans disorder are from the Doktor Frankenstein's that have created trans.dirt
Trans are slaves to other peoples persception of them, spending every waking hour worrying and stressing themselves about mannersims, pronouns, angles, body shape and structure, clothing, etc etcWhen confronted on why these things are insane (and ridiculous) and they are living some kind of disordered, grostesque fantasy, a common response I've gotten is "Well if that's the case than I LOVE this fantasy!!!"....Wow.You try and help people and it's responses like this that make you want to just not even bother.
[Is it possible that the testosterone itself is what makes you think that you're doing the right thing?]That's a legitimate question, though I can't tell you about the FTM end. My observation of doubts and insecurity on this side leads me to believe that estrogen does not cause us to think such a thing. As a matter of fact, I have a pretty friend who has been at this for almost eight years, and recently divulged that she is still insecure about her situation. Without a doubt, estrogen has done a lot of good things for me. When all is said and done though, the individual makes or breaks whether or not they feel they are doing the right thing; that hinges on how much they believe in themselves and what they are doing. Looks and physical aspects will never make a person happy; the mental piece of this puzzle is the most vital.[I did not know what being trans was until a few years ago,]None of that bullshit makes anybody transsexual; that's just what the psychological community claims. To give an example of why things like that are ridiculous, I took a brain sex test for fun while I was chatting with Bluetraveler earlier. It declared me 25% into the male spectrum because of a higher logic response, despite that I decisively believe in my womanhood.What is to say that women can't be logical? On the same token, what is to say that women can't want to do any of the things that you did in childhood? So you see, basing your existence on rigid gender roles is nonsense; that is letting a stranger tell you who to be and how to think. Only your heart, mind, and sense of self can ever tell you who you really are. No psychologist can ever do that.Mentioning which, I will never understand why people trust in psychiatrists and psychologists so implicitly. Altogether, they are the most ridiculous farce ever foisted upon humankind. Any group that has stated being homosexual is a mental illness in the past and experimented on gay people for that reason has some serious fucking screws loose of their own.
I'm sending Dirt's info out with my xmas cards. Loretta, you are too sweet! Thank you for her address and phone # and also for giving me another list of people to send to. You de bomb
Hey Dirt,I understand your point of view, and I too am FTM. I do check here also to see my face up here, but I am truly transgendered, and have considered myself male for a long time. I understand that there are thousands of transman-wanna-be's out there, and I know quite a few of them because being transgendered isn't fun at all. This is besides the point, and yes I agree with a few other sane transgendered guys on here. We aren't all lunatics, and I have a site to show you. This isn't to start a controversy, but to inform you about what is being said. I have yet to believe anything on this. It seems like someone is trying to blackmail you. I don't agree with that. To all those crazy men, she doesn't deserve to die. Terroristic threats aren't good. So I think this needs to stop. You're only making us look worse than what's only being said.P.S. Here is the website:http://dirtywhiteboi67.insanejournal.com/profile
Admittedly I never wanted to do conventional 'female-role' tasks or play with female toys or makeup as a child, to this day I have never worn makeup. But that is only the role I play. Not my identity. Butch probably experience the same 'male role'. But for the transgendered person, it's different. It's a consistent sense of self that does not connect to your physical sex. A child is encouraged into their gender role, but their identity is very different. I have always just felt like a 'boy', whatever that means, it is simply how I always felt. I asked my mother when I was in kindergarten why I wasn't 'like the other boys'. It's very difficult to explain what a true transgendered person feels. I suspect though, that it is much different from what a masculine woman feels. I tried to feel right, It felt like walking in someone elses shoes. This feeling was constant from age 5, so.. I started living as a man even before I knew what transsexual was. I know I am not part of any fad, simply because this choice is far from being glamorous. I do not want to post photographs of my every hair growth. I simply want to live as what I feel I am, a man. And I do as such, quietly with my supportive friends and family.
My dog ate a whole apple pie.
Aw, jeez. That webpage is just.. so highschool. I have stated here multiple times that I am transgendered.. but with the way these kids are acting I am almost.. starting to feel ashamed. I don't want to be compared to these kids. Oy! That just made my skin crawl.
To all the trans trolls: you are ridiculous, as well as sociopaths.And to the one(s) who faked a livejournal profile wherein Dirt "reveals" she's FTM:you have no clue about how to write a piece in another person's voice. The fakeness of it is apparent in a 10 miles radius. But then again, it would be very different to fake, because it's so apparent that Dirt is a woman. In my opinion, more of a woman than every Stepford wife wondering if her hairdo is pretty enough, or if her fuckshoes glamorous enough.The latter is not a "real woman", it's a sexist male fantasy heralded as the ultimate female ideal. As in, you know, we live in patriarchy.
[The only "scientific" proof of the trans disorder are from the Doktor Frankenstein's that have created trans.]The recent creation of a defined entity or the terminology involved, sure. I only use the manmade terms for lack of knowing any better ones.[Trans are slaves to other peoples persception of them,]Let's not be too hasty with our generalizations here, as I am nothing of the sort.[I'm sending Dirt's info out with my xmas cards. Loretta, you are too sweet! Thank you for her address and phone # and also for giving me another list of people to send to.]I will make this blunt: leave Dirt alone. This is not how adults handle things. The Internet is not real life, and returning negativity to any negativity is a vicious cycle. Except now you will be upping the ante to the next level, and she can slap you down with the law in return. Many of you are young, and it is simply not worth it. All of you need to settle down before you do something foolish.

Leigh,I don't know if you're still here but my answers to your questions, I wrote them here:http://questioningtranssexuality.blogspot.com/2010/12/simply-add-hormones-questions-and.htmlAs for Average Joes And Jills appointing themselves "queer theorists", until there's some neurological proof for transsexuality (as of now, one bad article doesn't equal confirmation, nor denial), anyone's "opinion", as long as it's grounded in facts, is in fact equally valid.This doesn't mean you have the privilege of not informing yourself before writing.But since often all that Dirt says, despite her manners, is common sense, I don't see how that's bad a priori.

"It doesnt even have to be about you, like you care what i have on you, but you probably care about your friends."So you just threatened to harm Dirt's friends -- that's how any reasonable police officer or judge would interpret that. Not only are you courting serious legal trouble, you're making yourself look like a nutcase.
I'm not surprised the empty threats are coming. The picture of the woman with the packaging tape over her tits is just sad.
You're a fucking cunt rag. You and Hex should probably fall into a pit and rot in hate together. Funny thing is - I'm a straight female who's an allie and I am no allie of yours. My best friend is trans sure in the beginning I probably thought like you but who the fuck are we to judge. Go die or something.
[You're a fucking cunt rag. You and Hex should probably fall into a pit and rot in hate together.]I hate nobody, and that includes Dirt. Might want to have a look at yourself there, though.
What these kids fail to understand is I dont "hate" them or anyone else. Fighting systems based is misogyny does not equal "hate". Utilizing male tactics to silence women and incite violence against women however IS hate!dirt
Dear Dirt,I’d love to see a blog where you talk about being molested as a young girl. I apologize but you are a very open book.Molested as a child you chop off your hair because you wanted to be a boy. Too afraid to transition (you had become attached to the feeling of being wanted and accepted, because as a tranny you wouldn’t be, so you looked forward to the rape from your father/uncle/brother etc. there is a possibility that that is all the same person…) you tagged yourself as a dyke and a lesbian to the point that now you believe everything you say. After all daddy didn’t need to know about your sexuality, but he wouldn’t screw a boy. The words dyke, butch and he-she, they hurt less than tranny or freak….but only sting half as much as the memories of the man who made you this way buried deep inside of you.You are filled with hate, and as self proclaimed white trash myself (I sure do love white pride and a good ole can o’ Pork n’ Beans!) you make me quite ashamed to admit to it. Please get the mental help needed. Please, the world would be a much better place without it.Sincerely,Craigery Divo
Dirt, however misguided, is speaking opinion and opinion alone. Not even an opinion founded in unrealistic beliefs, but what she sees as logical (which I very much encourage, even if it does lead to a conclusion I don't believe is correct). She is not trying to incite violence against the trans community, not trying to support discrimination, and not trying hurt anyone. And while I sincerely hope one day she learns to truly accept the trans community, the things people feel they need to do, and the choices they make regarding how to transition and other aspects of life as a trans gender individual, that will most likely never happen, and certainly never happen under the constant threat of violence.Also, Dirt, I am interested in your exact beliefs regarding trans.
Anon@7:46,You comment is confusing to say the least, are you asking me to start a topic so women like yourself who have been molested as children can discuss how those experiences shaped you?dirt
I like pork and beans too.
@ DirtGood way to blow off that attack like it didnt matter, too bad it actually did hurt. Just a shame craigery down there went a little too far and made himself look stupid, but the first sentence had to catch you off guard a bit eh?
[Sincerely,Craigery Divo]Nice psychoanalysis there; if any of that were the truth about the way things go, then I must have been molested. As well, being molested in reality did not make my wife into anything that you describe. Back to square one, Dr. Divo?
Craigery Divo my sister and I both were molested as girls and neither of us are lesbians. I'm bi and she is straight. in fact me and my sister have almost nothing in common besides music and wanting to preserve the environment.. your mentality that being abused in any way is automatically known is laughable since no one knew it was happening at the time. not everyone who is gay was abused she may have short hair but so what she likes it that way she is butch deal with it. ohh by the way you talking about things you obviously know nothing about only succeeds in making YOU look like a complete idiot.
When I was coming out as a lesbian in the 70s I couldn't have been prouder or happier. I was finally free to be myself, to express how I felt about other women, and to fight the political battles that needed fighting. I refused to conform to what it meant to be a woman and I became an individual, unique, strong, and powerful.These young women want that kind of pride and happiness but it's a bitter road ahead of them when they mistake being men with being something better. Butchering who you are isn't going to lead to feeling good about yourself. Just like plastic surgery, you will always believe that any part of yourself that makes you uncomfortable can be cured with cutting off a part of yourself.The trans movement is a lie. No one is comfortable in their skin at 18 and if you don't conform to patriarchy's model of the perfect female it's even worse. The lie is that playing the other gender role is going to fix everything.The truth is: find a way to be yourself without play acting as a man. You're not men and you never will be. Find strength in what makes you unique and stop trying to conform to a gender - that will never make you happy.Dirt is doing these young women a huge service by shining a giant light and mirror on what they're doing.
Dirt im not a ftm i was born male an seeing as your so manly the never hit a girl rule doesnt apply, your just to much of a coward to give out your real info
Mikey you sound quite intimated by a woman. How about you give me your address and a time to meet and I'll be there. I'm free the rest of this week except saturday and sunday.In other words pusscakes, put up or shut the fuck up.dirt
I maintain that trans is not just some fad though since hexy is my life partner that shouldn't be too surprising but like Zoe says threating dirt with violence is many things useful not being one of them. lets all be adults now and leave the macho He-man antics at the door so to speak. <3 Lexie <3
Funny how "mike" and "Craigery" manage to sound more transphobic than anyone here who's questioning the trans trend. And anyone who believes any bio males are reading this blog, other than the occasional gay man who's tired of having his spaces appropriated by FTMs...I have some oceanfront property in Kansas I'd like to sell you.
So Mikey, cat got your tongue?Waiting for your address over here, come on.dirt
Not really surprised that Mikey isn't stepping up to the plate, though I am shaking my head at how intimidating men seem to find you, trans or not. Oh no, it's a butch lesbian who thinks for herself! Better run for the hills, stalk her from a distance!Well I'm not doing anything later today after about six if you want to stop by, Dirt. Feel free to throw me an email about getting together, as I am pretty sure that you know where to send it. You drink coffee or tea?
@Dirt (do not know where to post it as I don't see a post about it on your blog) : do you think becoming a father for a ftm is part of the transition process ? ie is fatherhood (through artificial means or adoption) a part of the transition to malehood ?
Just wondering, what's your opinion on male to females?
awh man, you crack me up... if your mad delusions and insane rantings weren't so funny and so impossible to take seriously a lot of people would hate you.keep the crazy comin' the world can always use more lunatics,you whacked out coked-up bitch
@anon4:40 PMHow is that working for you?. So you thought by kissing dirt's ass you would be somehow exempt from from all the hate that she sprouts on all trans people. Hmmmmm? Oh I'm sorry did she hurt your feeling when she told you, that you are not a "real man". and oh btw by telling dirt "you knew you were trans" because you loathe the stereotypical gender roles, you are only giving her the fuel to hate on more trans people, and the fuel to associate transexuality with sexism. It doesnt matter what you say she still going to twist it and turn it around to hate on us. You can kiss her ass all you want but at the end of the day its not gonna score you any points.Im not going to apologise for that. I dont care whether you are trans or not, if you are an transphobia apologist, i will call you on it, and that include you hexy.. dah dah. @Hexy, you seem very interested at policing FTM transition, as an MTF who policied you when you are/were transitioning, for the record MTFs are still transition medically than FTMs. MTFs have the highest detransition rate than MTFs, since we FTMs "are not one of your own" maybe you should let us control and policy our own. Trans dirt apologist are even worse than dirt and her gang of haters. She has been doing this for years, what negotiations?. If you want to take a passive approach to these band of haters or none at all go ahead,you can do as you wish, but some of us are going to fight for our rights and freedom, that dirt is trying to steal from us, tooth and nail.I have never threatened dirt with death etc,cant be bothered really, she wont change. But I would understand why some angry transmen would. Dirt says the most hateful, disrespectful and disgusting stuff about us, then she moans and screams when someone give her a little, a tiny winnie taste of her medicine. If she want to be radical we can also be RADICAL, equal opportunities for all.
Anon @ 8:45 PMReally? Transphobia apologist?Most of us that are disgusted by the people attacking Dirt in an ugly, immature manner do not agree with everything that Dirt says or does, but we DO support her right to say it. How is that kissing someone's ass? Freedom of speech is her right. Defending that is NOT being a kiss ass. Can she be abrasive? Sure. Even if it does bother some of us, we are capable of understanding it's HER blog. She can say whatever the hell she pleases. And I do not care what you say, there is NO justification for threatening to rape or kill her. Is that the other reason why you haven't personally, you can't be bothered because it wouldn't change her? Not that it is WRONG? I do not care if you think me "worse" than Dirt. I'll still sleep soundly at night.
[you seem very interested at policing FTM transition]Then do it yourself. There's just no way there are this many natural-born female-to-male transsexuals springing up, all of the sudden. I see you patting each other on the ass everywhere I go, and then you turn around and threaten people who don't agree with what's going on. You are the single most important line of defense in confirming that these girls are not making a life-shattering mistake, because psychologists can be lied to.[as an MTF who policied you when you are/were transitioning]Nobody has done any such nonsense. [MTFs have the highest detransition rate than MTFs]As well as the higher population, and we have been around longer. Besides, detransition is a good thing; it means that people who are not committed are not carrying through on our end. This is not something to brag about on yours.[since we FTMs "are not one of your own" maybe you should let us control and policy our own]Feel free to provide me with examples where you have deterred young women from doing this.[Trans dirt apologist are even worse than dirt and her gang of haters.]I must have really chapped your ass to get comments like this. I am a lesbian woman who happens to be transsexual, not the other way around. If it really surprises you that I have more in common with a lesbian woman than I do with your crew of manly men, I have an ice rink in hell to sell you.[If you want to take a passive approach to these band of haters or none at all go ahead]I have been anything but passive toward bands of haters; how unfortunate that they all seem to be coming from your end.
so, lemme get this right...Dirts new right hand man ( woman)is an MTF???what the hell happened ?so question Dirt,Men embracing femminity, as far as changing themselfs into women, is that ok by you?How interesting.maybe i'll FTM the MTF , then FTNothing myself till im just a human beingNorrie May Welby!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norrie_May-Welbywhats your opinion on it Dirt?
HH,I have my own right hand thank you very much, I also have a left one that works equally well, just ask any ex g/f for confirmation.Males cannot "change" themselves into females anymore than females can change themselves into males. Biologically impossible. As for your link, another kook in the world, big deal. Someone wasnt loved as a child is what concerns me more. dirt
@HexydezimalAlright I hear you, thanks for your input. It gives me some insight on what's really going on inside that head of yours. I still dont get what your real problem with FTMs is though."Then do it yourself. There's just no way there are this many natural-born female-to-male transsexuals springing up, all of the sudden. I see you patting each other on the ass everywhere I go, and then you turn around and threaten people who don't agree with what's going on. You are the single most important line of defense in confirming that these girls are not making a life-shattering mistake, because psychologists can be lied to."I don't know how to tell the difference between a "REAL" transsexuals and a "Faux" one, do you?. Maybe you can share with us how "you" MTFs keep your own "population" so controlled. Everyone who transition is taking some kind of risk, FTM/MTF physically, mentally, socially etc, most of these "young girls" are adults. Who I'm I to tell them they are not trans if they say they are. "Nobody has done any such nonsense." Freedom is sweet isnt it. Why deny it to somebody else. Even though I would expect a fellow trans person to understand my struggles, its not always the case isn't it, history has shown us that oppressed groups can just be as oppressive as the oppressor themselves, if not more. Transexuals included..... Human nature. "As well as the higher population, and we have been around longer. Besides, detransition is a good thing; it means that people who are not committed are not carrying through on our end. This is not something to brag about on yours."not bragging, nah, just trying to put a point across, would you have liked it if MTFs were denied transition because of a minority who makes mistakes. Should we start policing innocent MTFs now due to the high detransition rate and of course the higher numbers of elder MTFs. "Feel free to provide me with examples where you have deterred young women from doing this."Its not my place to say who is real and who is a fake, like I said. Surgery and hormones are risky, I do not encourage anyone to take that route If they cant accept the consequences. Its their decision to make, they should be knowledgeable about the after effects. Its not really a secret that testestorone has its share of harmful effects. At the end of the day I cant make the final decision for somebody about their life. "I must have really chapped your ass to get comments like this. I am a lesbian woman who happens to be transsexual, not the other way around. If it really surprises you that I have more in common with a lesbian woman than I do with your crew of manly men, I have an ice rink in hell to sell you."OK, feel free, but does showing your lesbian sisters support mean that you have hate on transmen. You call us "young women" disrespecting our identities, then complain when its done to you by your so called lesbian sisters, who is being a hypocrite here?. you dont have to kiss FTMs' ass, we are all different people, we dont think the same but respecting each other's identities goes a long way. you cant dismiss someone's else trans status and expect it not to be done to you.
Sorry for the ridiculously long post and taking too much space,wasnt sure it was going to go through, it exceeded the word limit.from anon 2:49
[I still dont get what your real problem with FTMs is though.]That your side has been favoring harassment and making threats of violence against women as a legitimate tactic. Everybody was warned that I was not going to stand for this behavior, so I fail to grasp why there is all this wailing and gnashing of teeth now.[I don't know how to tell the difference between a "REAL" transsexuals and a "Faux" one,]It is somebody who is not troubled by a sometimes overwhelming conflict between their body and their mind (sense of self), and who is far more interested in being a gender role than in being an individual. As a general rule: if what somebody is saying to you sounds like bullshit, then it probably is. Use your experience.[Who I'm I to tell them they are not trans if they say they are.]Their peers; perhaps the only peers they will listen to. Many of you need to start taking more responsibility than you are, because this is not some carefree lifestyle. It is a cop out to suggest that you should be doing nothing more than allowing them to load themselves on the transition treadmill.[Freedom is sweet isnt it. Why deny it to somebody else.]I took my own freedom at some cost; it wasn't given to me.[Its not my place to say who is real and who is a fake,]Nobody else can do it.[Its not really a secret that testestorone has its share of harmful effects.]Testosterone can have plenty of harmful effects on a female body, some of which are unavoidable.[OK, feel free, but does showing your lesbian sisters support mean that you have hate on transmen.]Don't be silly. Far too often, you guys mistake disagreement for hate. If you cannot take disagreement without labeling it hate, it's time to take a close look at how insecure you are as individuals.[You call us "young women" disrespecting our identities,]I refer to a female-to-male as a man, and to a woman as a woman. If you are that sensitive about your 'identities', see what I said about being insecure above. You are also missing that I asked Dirt to do so as a matter of respect, not that I was entitled to have other people kissing my ass. You may want to keep that in mind.
Listen people don't get yourselves all in a knot over "hexydezimal", he's pretty transparent. He's on here saying the things he's saying because he desperately wants Dirt's approval. It's really quite pathetic. What's amazing tho is that Dirt allows this man to dominate the conversation ABOUT WOMEN just because he's saying something she agrees with. That's even more pathetic!!
The only thing "transparent" and "pathetic" anumic is your obvious jealously because you dont have my "approval".dirt
gosh this is sad. I can't believe so many girls are doing this to themselves. so young, too. butch flight is such a sad chapter in lesbian history. I only hope it can be overcome soon
@anumicI have a package of Kleenex in my purse if you need to wipe those tears, brave amazon of justice.I am not desperately seeking Dirt's approval. We have been chatting for a while outside of her blog, and there is a comfortable amount of common ground between us. It would be fair to say that I consider her a friend at this point. Other than my telling you that, it is no further business of yours.
hey dirt I'm in one of these pictures whatgenderami and I don't think I belong in this because I do not consider myself trans, I am still confused about gender but I'm not going to "transition" or do any of that. I mainly see myself as a butch now. Love you by the way :)
1. i agree wit the guy hoo sed i hope u die2. ftms r men not women3 YUR A FUCKIN ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!4 YUR GUNNA GO 2 HELL!!!!!!!!!!
The only thing I don't understand here is why you (Dirt) insist on deflecting questions that might show some fallacy in your way of thinking. Someone asked what you think of MTFs, and you talked about that person not being loved as a child. Why do you have such a problem with FTMs but not MTFs? Bias maybe? I'm no hater, I'm not going to bash you for your beliefs and such. As a feminist and a lesbian, I understand where you're coming from on the subject of FTMs, although I personally disagree. I'm only wondering why there's no problem with MTFs.
