/cd/ Transgender Discussion
I'm mtf trans, though I've not made much progress beyond HRT for over a year. It's pretty terrible, but I need funds. So my voice sucks, still need face lasered, don't have any good clothes, etc. I present male 24/7 and it's sort of driving me insane.In mid May, I start a CNA course that lasts 3 weeks, at which point I will try to find a job doing that. My problem for the time being is my severe anxiety, and fear of how people will see me. When talking to strangers I visibly shake and stutter and my face goes hardcore red. I'm really scared of doing the CNA course and then clinicals and then looking for work, partly because I feel as though it's completely obvious that I've been taking hormones. I have very noticeable breasts and I'm afraid to bind, but I think they'll really stick out in scrubs. If all of this works out I'm hoping to move to Colorado when I get a bit of money saved up, but I've failed at this sort of thing so many times in the past it's ridiculous. For now I'm in an ultra-conservative smallish city.What am I going to do? I feel like this trans thing might kill me.
>>370399Relax.The medical field is one of the most accepting of trans people. Plenty of trans people work in hospitals. They won't care that you're trans - in general they are pretty tolerant.Honestly, you probably don't need to bind at all - for all you know, when you're in scrubs you might make you physically pass, regardless of your voice, because scrubs are gender neutral clothing that many medical workers need to wear. This also gets rid of your 'lack of clothing' problem at least while at work.Try checking out some thrift stores, like the ones that only sell almost-new clothing that is from recent years and looks reasonably good or even great, at a great price. Try somewhere like Plato's Closet if they have it over there.Moving to Colorado might help you out a lot - I don't know if people are more tolerant or not, but in bigger cities it's pretty much a given that they're more tolerant than small conservative communities. Plus you have legal recreational weed - what reason more do you need? lol
So I went out on a limb and put up a craigslist ad (first mistake?) about looking for a girl to date. I am MTF. Guess who messaged me? 18 men, 1 woman asking for nudes, and 1 lesbian who had this to say.>Hey stupid if you got a cock between your legs then your in the wrong section cause your just a man so fuck off and die>Can't change your chromosomes and the fact your male bugs me lol your not a girl so maybe try being truthful and realizing you'll ALWAYS be male lol you can always put lipstick on a pig but it will still be a man >Lol always use more pussy :) wondering the same thing why your in f4f lol clearly you can't understand the concept of girl for girl :) but your penis must make you stupid lol >Lmao gay bigot?you have a penis who likes girls how is that gay?your just a man who mist likely has a very small penis or possibly had daddy fuck your ass so you want to run away from it lol but who really knows:) what I do know is your not a girl and your not gay so maybe accept that your always and will always be male >A mans brain can't understand witty lol but must suck that only old gross guys want a crossdresser :) might be a freak of a girl who'd want you so goodluck dudeAnd lately I've seen tons of trans hate. Is it the area I live in? The way I look? Do I have to deal with these asshole for the rest of my life?And a GAY person knocking trans people. What the actual fuck. Comment too long.

>Hey stupid if you got a cock between your legs then your in the wrong section cause your just a man so fuck off and die
>Can't change your chromosomes and the fact your male bugs me lol your not a girl so maybe try being truthful and realizing you'll ALWAYS be male lol you can always put lipstick on a pig but it will still be a man
>Lol always use more pussy :) wondering the same thing why your in f4f lol clearly you can't understand the concept of girl for girl :) but your penis must make you stupid lol
>Lmao gay bigot?you have a penis who likes girls how is that gay?your just a man who mist likely has a very small penis or possibly had daddy fuck your ass so you want to run away from it lol but who really knows:) what I do know is your not a girl and your not gay so maybe accept that your always and will always be male
>A mans brain can't understand witty lol but must suck that only old gross guys want a crossdresser :) might be a freak of a girl who'd want you so goodluck dude
yup, and a lot of these assholes have more power than you too
>>370249Were there ANY positive responses at all?
>>370292read capped reread
>>370292I'd probably have to stop too. That is some mindfuck shit even in youtube videos.Harsh though, I'd laugh about it eventually.
>>370292I love this I think I'm going to do it to my kids, without fucking them.
How do I pass and not look like a fucking stubbled Tim Burton character?
>>370364i find shaving against and along the grain it keeps stubble away till early evening.>>370256have you tried wearing makeup...? cuz i think you would be fine if you put some makeup on, put in some hair accessories or even get foils.also if you hardly ever wear makeup start wearing it, start from any place, but the more you use makeup the more you will want to improve your skills.
>>370367Shaving against the grain will give you ingrown hairs and cause it to grow back thicker.
>>370364Either shave in the bath/shower after soaking for a bit or lay a warm washcloth over your face for like 5-10 min beforehand.Shave twice, once with the grain and then a second time against the grain.If you have non-blonde hair, you are still almost certainly going to need to wear makeup to cover up the shadow, but at least you shouldn't be able to feel the stubble, which i found helpful from a mental health perspective.
>>370256Why haven't you done laser yet?Is it unavailable in your area?
>>370364Oh! And i know everyone recommends those huge 3/4/5 blade shavers, but i've found that they clog super easily. I prefer the 2 bladed shavers like the Schick Slim Twin/ST2.Avoid the cheap 1 bladed shavers without aloe strips, they are *awful*.
I have reason to believe that someone here purchased a cat dress and a lion sweater for me from my amazon wishlist on March 18th. Id like to say thank you even though they shipped to the wrong address and were returned (I absolutly freaked out for a while thinking they shipped to my mothers house. luckily they did not :)that was really nice of you and even though I never received the gift I feel so happy
>>370320can't link me to them specifically? i wanna buy maybe P:
LOL I bought those for myself after seeing your wishlist in another thread, http://boards.420chan.org/cd/res/368131.php am poster right above you haha ..but since I have a well paying job, happy tranny gift day dudette AND IT'S MADDIE NOW ASSHOLE
>>370376and they went to the wrong address because I was in the process of moving and UPS required a signature for some reason..
>>370376So Maddie (love it)what youre trying to tell me is that thosewere for yourself and not me ;-;Why doesnt anyone ever warn you that nothing in life comes free?I better start making some skrilla before you clean me out of all the cat stuff lolgood life and good luck bb
>>370389I ordered them 4 u last night dummi they come CATURDAY
I have over 2 years hrt but nothing else. no attempt to wear female clothes, learn to change my voice, female haircut or anything. I still look exactly the same / possibly even younger than when I started when I was 15 which is weird. I don't look like I'm 18, I haven't aged at all. I suppose i just dont know what comes next? It feels like i'm stuck taking hormones and nothing ellse
>>370391What is it that's holding you back? And I assume you live in the US?Practice your voice, and if you have the potential to pass (which you should have if you started at late 15) then try to take steps... Maybe try to look like a gay guy, then androgynous, then fem androgynous and then take the last step and present yourself female.
>>370391Why haven't you tried to look fem OP? Like in private even. Don't think you'll pass?
>>370392I think my family are holding me back some because they are very unaccepting and have stolen my hormones a few times. But also fear, not knowing what exactly to do next, mostly fear. I dont live in the USA.>>370393I have never tried because I am scared to, I don't know why. I wear male clothes and have a male haircut and 50-60% of the time people call me "miss"/"maam" when I go shopping etc and 40-50% of the time they just think I'm a little boy (I got stopped from entering a movie rated 15+ lol)
>>370395Also I am not sure what to do to practice the voice because it sounds male to me and it definitely changed when I was about 13, but on the phone if they don't know my name/details people call me "maam" every time and then say "oh sorry" when I give my name. it's weird.
I hadn't have a blood test for 4 months. Before that, everything was always fine, so my blood tests were getting more and more rare.However, lately I noticed that there is something wrong with me and I finally got it tested. Mfw T is 319ng/dl and in male range. How fucked I am? How long has it been going on? I've been taking spiro twice a day all the time. Was it totally ineffective? \Were the pills expired? Were they only partly effective? Has it been going for 4 months or several weeks or what?Please, I need some advice from the people who had similar experience. I am so crushed and for the first time in over a year since I started hrt I feel like dropping everything and killing myself. I notice now a change to my facial features that I previously didn't see due to "frog boiled slowly" and fat redistribution. fuck fuck fuck
>>370336My last batch from IHP was definitely good - my next batch that I have from them looks like the same pills but it's in a different bottle. Don't know if I should be concerned or not lol. I really hope it's not faulty, but I guess I'll find out in a month or so when I run out of older bottle spiro.
>>370336I always take comfort in the fact that mine come in a blister pack that looks official and has the brand and some info printed all over it.I think ADC does that, got mine from the place that rhymes with "Milk Growed". IHP has a different source, and I honestly don't trust them because they are just like pills in a generic bottle with a label. I know it is silly, but it makes me feel safe that my packing would be hard to reproduce as fakes and looks like some investment was required to make the blister.
>>370339I had no idea they even had this shit at the place that rhymes with "Milk Growed", how is the pricing?
Me again. 7 days ago it was 319. Now I got results from 3 days ago. It was 700. fuck. what does this mean?
>>370349It is about the same as anywhere else, I think. I only bought it there because I had a lot of bitcoin and it was surprisingly the easiest/safest place to buy from without a cc.I think it was like 0.1btc for 200 spiro 100mg, back when the price was somewhere around 700-800. So $80 for 200 spiro including shipping, guess that is actually better than most sources.There was some trouble with the shipping though (due to some miscommunication), and the seller ended up sending them in a way I had to sign for them. Wasn't expecting to have to sign, so it scared me pretty badly. Plus you could really hear the pills when you moved the package.
Does your value as a transperson decrease if you're fat or something? I notice I rarely see chubby transpeople on sjw spaces or these kind of boards.It kind of sucks because I'm a chubby transman, who actually actively works to lose weight but nothing works so I might have to just give up and accept not looking spongeworthy.
let me break it easily, chubby transgirl will pass faster/easier on hrt than their skinny bitch counterparts.Chubby transmen? the 3 i knew in RL became Beefcake after 8 months of T. (Not sure if they did exercise or weight reduction program)...not much of a help there.
on a totally different note, have you considered getting tatooes to boost ?
>>370381>Does your value as a transperson decrease if you're fat or something?Every persons value decreases if they're fat... No matter if they're cis or trans.Though, an unpassable skinny trans woman <<<<<<<<<<< passable chubby trans woman. You just need to figure out how to be at your most valuable.
>Does your value as a transperson decrease if you're fat or something?
>>370385Nah, they're not my thing, it'll just make me look even more like trash. I've been on T for >5 years, I'm fairly naturally stout but it depresses the fuck out of me that I might have to try and get surgery or something to lose weight just to feel ok. I love narrow waists and flat bellies and I don't think I will ever in my life manage that no matter how hard I continue to gym and eat well.
you know what i'm sick of? i'm sick of how it's so fash for me to dress androgynous in skinny jeans and the queers and the hipsters think i'm all rad, but if i want to wear a dress or nailpol it's too freaky and people get all in my businessi'm not super femme but i just want to be able to wear that shit sometimespic kinda related; not me; repost of a repost
>>370371wait, can you give us some more story? people love it when you wear jeans but when you wear a dress or nailpolish they have a go at you?tell them to fuck off.
You can get away with wearing a dress these days, yung thug did it. People thought he was fresher than a mug. I feel you tho ?
So I am planning on trying injections. If anyone can give me tips on what medication to use, where to inject, pain level and the worse case scenario of injecting. I appreciate all information and help. Thank you all in advance!
>>370352seconded. I'd like to go on injections as opposed to teh patch. Such a pain and its itchy!
>>370352I just did my first self-injection Tuesday.If I didn't have a headache I'd post more. Later (tomorrow) I probably will.However I will say it was surprisingly very not painful. There was some slight pinching feeling as I drove the last 1/2 inch of the needle (1 and 1/2 inches in length total - you might only need 1 inch needles depending on how thick your legs are).What was most disturbing/difficult was just -doing- it to myself. And also the feeling you get from the hand sticking the needle in, of it just popping through and sliding in like butter, but with some slight resistance changes as it pierces different layers of your skin, fat, and muscle tissue.Pain depends on how close you go to nerves. It wasn't much for me - it was comparable to IM injections I've had in the past - think of any time youve had to have a shot in your butt. It might hurt less than that, might hurt more.Be prepared to be nervous as fuck before you stick the needle in, and possibly shaky as fuck during/after due to your nervousness. Just remember to breathe.As for injection site, check the pic. You want it in that muscle. Stick the needle in at a 90 degree angle to your skin at that spot. Stick it in fairly quickly, while pulling the skin tight to reduce pain, depress the plunger (it'll be going slowly due to the viscous nature of Estradiol Valerate injections), then pull it out at the same angle.

>>370372I also want to add, needles are cheap as fuck, don't reuse. You can get them at walmart ultra cheap. No prescription needed, but they might ask for your ID.And also, I switched to injections from sublingual Estrofem tabs, at 4mg/day split into a 1mg dose every 6 hours. It feels nice not having to take any pills other than my spiro twice a day.
I read NPR a lot because I need to keep up on my ultra-leftist news, and I've noticed that whenever an article about transgender issues come up there's a person there that posts under the name "I'ma GLAADhostage" that claims to be like discriminated against by the word "transgender". She also insists that homosexual people do not refer to themselves as "gay" and that this is a misuse of language and an affront to humanity.Is there anything to this, or is she just crazy? A couple examples of her posts:""Transgender is a distortion of the truth. The more the media and Television promote the use of the word "Transgender" the bigger the distortion it becomes. I find it hard to believe how many people have fallen for this "Transgender" scam. I'll fill you all in on a little secret most of us transition to become the men and women we identify as. We don't go to the "LGBT" or "Transgender Community" for ether instructions on how to be a man or a woman or for acknowledgement of our identities. In case you didn't notice the "LGBT" does not respect them. What the "LGBT" and "Transgender activist" want is not to be simply seen as "Men" or "Women" but instead to be seen as a "Transgender person."""Most same sex attracted people don't identify as "Gay" so why are they portrayed as "Gay" to begin with?"
Crazy as fuck, but as for the trans* comment, I guess they might have a point. (So I assume) we don't want to be transgender persons, we want to be physically of the opposite sex. However, I think this is kind of moot in regards to the LGBTQAI communities, as we acknowledge that we are in fact trans*, and seek equal rights and acknowledgement regardless. Idk. I mean, I generally consider myself a queer queer. Queer in sexuality and gender. I like what I like, and am what I am. I guess part of it is a way of coping by trying to stay in whatever weird comfort zone I might think I have. It's also me trying to not limit myself to the bounds of arbitrary labels. But as time goes on, I'm sliding out of that comfort zone in to where I really want to be, and coming to terms with my own sexuality and gender.uhh, if any of this makes sense
i understand what she's saying.....but i really can't find the words to explain what's going on in my head, or rather my intepretaion of it.....i would try to explain it but.... but i would just convey something innacurate from what i mean....so instead i give you this wonderous wallpaper.
>>370347Alternately, disregard that, I suck cocks.
So she makes some good points? She just rants so hard and ONLY complains about these trans language issues, it's kinda off-putting."He is right Bieber. A lot of "Transgender activist" would be best described as Fetishistic Transvestites or Autogynephillic transvestites that opted for sex reassignment. For them its about clothing or a mis-targeted sexual orientation. Gender identity has nothing to do with it. Ever notice including with this part on Orange is the new black "Transgender" as applied to those who transition to female is almost exclusively the domain of those attracted to females? Take a good look at the National LGBT group "Transgender Leadership" they are almost all either married to women or formerly married to women. They are Transvestites."
>>370343She doesn't sound crazy, just very very dumb.
Well, a while ago I was into Crossdressing for cosplay reasons (who am I kidding I was dressed like a whore 24/7)Anyway, anyone have makeup tips so I don't have such a manly jaw?>Pic Related, recent I.D photo
>Pic Related, recent I.D photo
My hair isn't this long anymore sadly, but I do have a hook up at a nice wig shop who also helps me get shit from victoria's secret as she has similar dimensions to me.I know I'm never going to be>This hotBut I wanna get close.
Your jaw isn't that manly, if you were trans then I'd say HRT would treat you really well.
>>370310Invest in a haircut.Invest in glasses like pic related.
>>370294oh, you'll pass fine. just gotta clean up and all. eyebrows, better hair, etc. at least from what i can tell you'll be fine.
>>370295really the chick in the photo?buy a wig do makeup the same and wear similar outfit and you're hot.
