    Oh god, I can feel you anonymous on the voice thing. Mine is so fucking deep and I have no idea how I'll get a feminine sounding voice. I wish the hormone meds would lighten our voices like testosterone deepens the voice for trans men.

    Me too. I'd be really happy with a doctor girlfriend type thing there though.

    Isn't there a surgery for vocal cords, or is it bullshit/laughably expensive?

    both. voice therapy is the only thing that's guaranteed to help.

    I am really hoping the hormones give me super big boobs. I kinda want a big rack slightly more than a vagina. Just slightly.

    Also it's incredibly dangerous right? Like the risk to completely fucking up your vocal cords is pretty bad.

    I love that the internet concensus re: dr. girlfriend seems to be "dude, the voice is half the turn-on"

    I shit you not, I've seen enough Venture Bros to start identifying that Dr. Girlfriend voice as feminine now.

    Dr Girlfriend has a rad voice

    Sometimes a raspy ladyvoice is sexy

    There was a lady who cut my hair once, though, heavy smoker and all

    Her voice

    Was not sexy

    A big part of it was the constant nasty throat clearing

    So I've got two groupons now for laser hair removal, I think I'm going to go ahead and get started on my face. Tired of shaving and still seeing the shadow of a mustache and goatee. So glad I don't have a full beard to deal with.

    I know there's physiologically nothing wrong with trans people's brains, so would it be accurate to describe gender dysphoria as a full-body disfigurement? Just trying to think of an easy way to educate people on the subject.

    Also just imagine the crazy artificial genitals that will be invented eventually, you guys. People won't know what the fuck gender is then, it'll be great.

    I hate my voice. which makes it weird when someone compliments my voice.

    which isn't very often, but when they do i really wish they wouldn't.

    I also have a hard time taking compliments in general. but that's a slightly separate issue.

    I wish we could all switch physical traits so they could find loving homes with someone who wants them

    I think my voice is too high

    I've had people assure me that it's not, but I don't know. It feels high

    I want a deep, Brad Shoemaker voice

    My voice is one of the biggest parts of my poor self image. I had to go to speech therapy as a kid to get over a lisp, and being banned from singing in Rock Band really hurt because I absolutely LOVE singing.

    I kinda wish the media would go fuck off and die and stop portraying stereotypes too. Like.. I want to feel "normal" - and not in a same as everyone else way, but as in a comfortable with myself kinda way. Again, part of why I'm envious of a lot of my friends who seem to have it all together, even if I know they don't.

    being banned from singing in rock band?

    Sang one song, couldn't get the harmonies right, was banned from singing, word spread.

    I've also been prodded to not sing at work - I tend to get carried away with my headphones on, as I'll sing and hum along to anything. Comes from spending 15 years playing some sort of musical instrument and having a choir singer/floutist (bass and standard) for a mom.

    Stupid traumatic moments.
