Being [TRANS] Is Like Working In A Fish Market

Except you don't clean and stack fish all day.

I don't know if the brackets make the tag appear but we'll see.

Anyway, here's a trans thread, for education and discussion about trans* stuff. Once again, any anonymous questions or comments can be submitted to http://homptalk.tumblr.com and I'll try to answer them in a timely fashion

Be nice and have a good time. And remember that I love you all.

    Ahh, thankyou. For some reason the closer I get to my date with the doctor to get on hormone treatments, the worse my dysphoria has been getting. No idea why but I find myself looking at other girls on campus and just feeling like crap because they're beautiful and in the bodies I wish I had, and I keep hating myself more and more. Also doesn't help that I feel like I've been waiting forever to start becoming myself and just don't have the patience anymore.

    It sounds like anxiety about getting close to achieving that. I'm sorry you have to go through that but it will be worth it!

    This isn't surprising. It's at the forefront of your mind as your doctor's appointment comes closer.

    Speaking of which, my doctor's appointment to get my spiro and estrogen refilled is on the 2nd. They may make me go see a psych since I haven't done that yet.

    @metalbourne @antimatter @dirtydirtyvagrant Hey guys, so what can I expect from the hormone meds in terms of exercising and fat reduction? I'm pretty much low low low body fat, but I still have this fucking belly pouch that won't go away. I've read that the hormones will distribute fat to other areas like my breasts, face and butt/hips since girls get fat in different areas than boys, but will it help to cut away at the belly fat a little as well?

    That is pretty rad, yeah.

    I don't understand how hard it is to accept something like this. I can understand needing time to adjust to it, (I mean if Anya came to me and said she thinks she was meant to be male I would still love her to death) but to outright hate someone and deny them the opportunity to be best and truest them they can be is just bullshit.

    Wow, that is a really oddly phrased sentence.

    the belly is still going to be a hassle for a while but it'll definitely help with your waist, and you will be growing breasts within six months

    It will de-emphasize it. Gnerally it doesn't "move" you just start to grow it on those other places. Expect to gain a little weight.

    With as fast of a metabolism that I have, I would be shocked to gain any weight at all, but we'll see. I just want this stupid belly to disappear already.

    Have I ever mentioned that everyone in this thread is an inspiration in a ton of different ways? Like.. seriously. I wish I could just flip a switch and make the world easier for you. Hopefully someday I'll have the opportunity to.

    Anonymous asked homptalk:
    I feel like I have the face and voice of Ron Perlman sometimes and it only makes my gender dysphoria more stressful, because all of my trans friends pass marvelously and I'm jealous for it. What do?

    A lot of people feel this way, not just trans people. There's a distinct difference between your identity as a human being and your looks, though. Remember that you don't need to look a certain way to be a certain kind of person.

    But really, every woman hates it when some dude dresses up in drag once and he's a way hotter than she is though. It's a thing that happens.
