I love you guys and all, but this thread and other trans spaces in general can get really depressing fast- which I understand completely and I've definitely contributed to that vibe before, but... Is there anyone out there who's transitioned (or is in the process of) and is really satisfied about how things are going? Any success stories? It's just really hard to keep moving forwards when half of what I hear are horror stories. Any uplifting moments lately?

Well you might want to elaborate on your question for one, How we have a good transition?

Like really? what do you mean? transition is subjective, some people have it good, some people have it bad, its all in your head, if you sit around your house moping all day doing nothing then of course you're gonna have a bad transition, to have a good transition you need to come out of the closet, like actually do it instead of just taking pills, go out and have some fun! enjoy your life! you dont have an excuse now.

You, of course, are 100% correct. It is entirely subjective and biased from person to person. I'll admit, I think reading some of the stories here (as I have in other similarly related threads) I focused too much out the outward looks.

As far as transition goes and acceptance via the friends and family I have currently I am very happy. I have friends who for the most part accept me as who I am and the gender I feel I am. My family, too, accepts me although they're as slow as I am with it all. (They have reservations, mainly the danger and whether or not I will be happy, my hesitations are mainly mental blocks of a homophobic father and whether or not I will like 'right')

So all in all, subjective I suppose I can't complain horribly. I am focusing more on the outward looks and whether or not I can interact with society in a 'girl' position rather than a 'guy' or 'what-the-fuck-are-you-' role. I assume most here feel these fears and emotions but what I was getting at was .... I guess, the very shallow end of it. Looks and passability.


...


After saying that I feel kind of shitty, so do forgive me. I'll go to my corner now. Just wanted to muster and claim as much information as possible as to what I can do to turn out the best I can, y'know?

just be yourself, everything you do, you do, you are a girl. get that through your head, so can you interact people in the girl position? there is no girl position, girls and guys are basically the same with some differences.

Just be yourself, stop worrying about not knowing things, you're a girl, you learn by experience, so any position you take is the girl position, if you think you're doing something super dooper manly just own it and you'll probs never do it again, the best way to go about your business is to be semi-stealth, which means, dont go walking around with a trans flag and tattooing die cis scum on your arm, be yourself, transition should be allowing you to be free, to be yourself, you dont need to hide, just go out to a bar every Wednesday night, people will put you in the 'girl position', but aslong as you just be yourself, try not to tell every passer by on the street your trans story and how you are trans etc, just chill the fuck out and be yourself.

Good luck.

If you come across as being a girl, then no one will ever think you were a guy, so be yourself, you are free now. time to take off the mask and feel the wind on your personality.

So I am about 3 months out from hormones, I've got a small amount of andro clothing (I'd have more but I've been broke more often than not) and am going to start really getting into makeup/hairstyles/etc.

I had a really hard time getting over my own 23 years of hard wiring and a homophobic dad (who has turned a new page over and is AMAZING, willing to throw money at me to an extent) and I am just not beginning to have less problems with it.

I am so excited for my titty skittles it ISN'T FUNNY. So excited that I want to jump for joy (waited for this for so fucking long) and now that it's happening I really want to get down to business.

So~ I come to the girls (and the guys if they want to answer) of seedy to ask some questions.

First and foremost, I am not a trap but I do feel that maybe some guides on 'trapping' would be acceptable advice. (Such as the the picture here: http://boards.420chan.org/cd/res/376801.php , very relevant). Does anyone else have any guides, tips, advice on feminizing my appearance? I've done a good amount, hair down to my shoulders by now and am trying everything I can manage but am ALWAYS hungry for more information (the more detailed and lengthy info, the better!)

Secondly, I want to maximize/super charge my boob growth as my genetics don't play into that and I'm rather big so I want big boobs. What can I do to do this?

Until I get the surgery (which I KNOW I am going to, maybe implants too if my boobs don't grow) I need to know how to tuck. Apparently I have been doing this since I was VERY little and never knew but it isn't really acceptable for wearing tighter clothing because I still have that bulge (WHICH I FUCKING HATE). So tips? Guides? Videos!?

It gives a better idea than none at all, really. Thanks.

Back on the original topic, though. I'm fairly fair complected, have a rather tall, lanky body. I'm assuming that mones will do a fair share of their work but I guess when it comes down to ... I dunno, a cross between feeling better about your body AND looking more feminine outwardly, is the 'trick' (hate using that word, makes it sound like you're trying to trick someone) basically a combination of everything? Clothing? Hair? Makeup? Voice? Mannerisms?

I just worry that I won't ... y'know, ever /get/ there.

I feel like this could also go in the fitness board, but I feel like it may be a little different. Does anyone have any tips for achieving a feminine frame/body/whatever via exercising? I know there are ways where you can tone your hips, butt, etc in a feminine way, but I just don't know where to start. I want to have a body that I could pass with as both male and female, y'know, genderfluid things, like I said, I just don't really know how to start.

I'm very curious about this too. Should you diet like crazy (i.e. lose as much weight as you can) pre hormones? I've heard of people losing it more easily when they start AA and sometimes 'mones than before.

Going to look at those other threads too.

1414705533412.png -(36001 B, 416x301) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. 36001
Firstly, please don't take the title offensively. I think innately all of us (MtF's) are women and it's not really 'trying' to be one but I was thinking the other night so bare with me here: If we had been born the correct gender, then we would've learned A LOT just by growing up that I think cis-gendered girls just take for granted. It's REALLY hard to ask questions and learn stuff when ... you don't even know what to ask. It's a little easier for those of us with friends who are girls or those of us with sisters who accept us and attempt to help, although I am in neither category. (I blame moving far too much and never developing the ability to make friends nor the courage to approach people.)

So, I figured that a really fantastic idea for a thread would be a thread where we could all collect and explain those little quirks, tips, tricks, and learned behaviors and such that really 'finish' being able to come off as female to society. As we all know, being perceived as female is a series of behaviors, small social quirks and cues, looks, touchups, the way you walk, talk, react. Everything! It gets frustrating sometimes because it's juggling so much simply because a lot of us are overcoming learned behaviors for ten or twenty (or in the case of others, even more!) years of learned behaviors as a gender we were ... not.

How about we all chip in and let everyone know those odd things you learned in your transition that YOU didn't even know to ask but found out by sheer luck and you'd think would be somewhat difficult to find so that we can all share the wisdom.

Basically, I just want a potluck of experience and learning to be placed here. I, for one, am horrible to make this as I am still just starting out and it spooks me but I've already learned a few things here and there (such as coloring your hair or lightening it and trimming/shaping your eyebrows make a bigger difference than you'd think!) which of course I'll share but I definitely think this would benefit us all.

I'm not offended, this is actually a really good idea and you're totally right. I think about all the time how I never had the same kind of relationship with my mother or sister or a group of female friends that your average cis girl would have and it destroys me inside a lot.

I don't really have much advice to give because I'm early in my transition myself but I just wanted to say I support and understand your idea.

Well.. if I may intervene, I don't think it's about "learning" stuff about gestures, behaviors and so ... Gestures and other "language body" stuff will come for sure if we are connected to our feminine energy. That's the key if a woman wants to be feminine. It's not how they move, but how much they are connected to their own "feminine energy".
If you want to fake a woman, it will look .... fake. The more you are aware of your inner womanhood, the more things will come naturally.
Of course, you can type "being feminine" and stuff on Google/Youtube and you'll find tips. But you get tired in the end to pay attention to so many things in public. You will feel that the whole experience is stressful and hard and you will have a felling of failure. And it's normal, because all you're doing is faking a feminine woman.
So, I would start by trying to understand who I am as a woman first. I would try to connect to my womanhood and to explore and express that in a genuine way. I would start by learning about my feminine energy (what's that, how can I connect to it and so on ..)
I transitioned 2/half years ago and I went full-time when I was about 7 months of HRT (and now I'm stealth). I always tried to understand my feminine and masculine part. And also, I always tried to understand why I needed both so much. I've been feminine in my gestures and behavior without paying attention to things. The only thing I had to be aware at first (the first months of my full-time) was walking. But even this changed in time in a natural way.
So, yeah, read whatever you think it's important to learn but really DON'T forget to learn how to connect to your own feminine energy. That's my tip ;)

I agree wholeheartedly. We are our own people and insofar as that, women/girls. I guess the goal I had of this was that others could help everyone by giving stuff they've found to pass more easily in society and be accepted as a girl/woman by those around them.

Just poking in here, since it's been 5 years since I came here for advice and discussion, and things couldn't have gone better.

Somehow I successfully reintegrated into society as a young woman with real world goals and aspirations, surrounded by unknowing, predominantly cis-het individuals and I'm progressing through my field swimmingly.

I guess I just wanted to say that it can be done, genetics backed me and so did my healthcare professionals which I understand isn't always the deal you get.

Perhaps if anyone wanted to ask me anything you think I could answer, I'd be more than happy to help just like those who helped me in 2009. Perhaps questions relating to surgery, psychotherapy, processes or anything. I think I went through them all.

Much love, I'll check back every few hours.

Alright, I'm going to be that asshole
Is there any chance of you posting the results of the surgery? There are _no_ resources online or anywhere else that show post-op several years after the fact after it all healed that aren't using outdated methods or on people that are a billion years old.
For people like me, this scares the shit out of me because I have no idea what the results even CAN be.

Took me a LONG time to work through this but there are a lot of people who are confused for (to my personal observation) two reasons:

  1. If you're bisexual, or like girls then you can get confused between what you find attractive and what you'd find attractive for yourself. This gets easier with time IMO. For example, I kind of like muscle girls. I'd NEVER want to be muscle-y myself. Think it'd be terrible for me.

2. Because you (the REAL you, on the inside and your mind) is a girl, you're going to see fantasies from the female perspective. It took me a long time to work it out but just because you see yourself in a female perspective getting fucked or sucking cock or WHATEVER does not mean it's strictly sexual. Genetically, males are designed for wanting sex 24/7. That's the dick, not you. It's bullshit but it's a byproduct of the body you were born with (and screwed over by). It's one of the things I hope goes away when I start taking mones is about 50% of my sex drive cause I have FAR too much.

I am sorry but I am sick of nearly every fucking representation in the media regarding trans issues defaulting to the "man in the dress" trope. Case in point, the new show Transparent. There are countless other shows and movies that do this as well. Dallas buyers club is another example, and look at jakes gylenhauls attitude after filming. He clearly still didn't get it even after playing rayon. He basically played her like a drag queen.

How often are young trans people represented? Never. How often are transwoman that pass well represented? Never. It gives an inaccurate view of the trans community, and I think at the best makes people just patronize us. Whether the PC mainstream says so or not, they still think of us as freaks. Or maybe golf clap worthy for our "bravery" being ourselves.

I am not trying to offend anyone, I just want a more accurate representation, instead of constantly being thrown into the lauras playground stereotype.

I didn't even know transitioning was a possibility. I hid all my female attributes because of a homophobic father, never got to really have friends who might've introduced me because I have moved more times than I am old. It's a weird place to be. If I had learned of this when I was younger, you bet your fucking ass I'd have done that. I fucking hate that I figured this shit out so late and that's also one of the reasons I struggle with it because I wonder if I will ever be able to go around life as a girl or as some half-gendered freak...

>>380298

Pretty much. I use information as a crutch and I hate jumping into a pool or taking leaps of faith. It took me the better part of 3 years to even admit to myself that I was transgendered and I wasn't just another 'AGP' male. (Fucking hate that term, accounts for a LOT of confusion.)


>>380300
>>380307

Ditto to 307. I wish I had jumped on it sooner but it's also due to lack of funds, ex-wife, kid, moving, lack of jobs. There's a lot of hurdles to get over when you're not 18 and have no debts, burdens or issues to deal with except those that life is JUST now throwing at you. (Not saying it isn't hard, just it might be easier in ways. ^_~)

You need to give kids more credit, they are just as up to speed as you are, they can use google, they can use tumblr, they can use circlejerk. they can go onto youtube and look at countless videos.

Kids these days, can legit google "i want to be a girl" and not get lauras playground as the top result. that is progress. because when i was 13 and i googled "i want to be a girl" or "i think i am a girl" or "crossdressing" every result was creepy as fuck.

It sounds like an online friend has passed. The attached picture is the only hint that you will receive about who I'm talking about (its a pretty big hint if you knew her at all.)

Has anyone heard more about her death? I've heard it was a suicide. I would ask her mom, but I do not want to increase the suffering of the family by making them thinking about it more than they have to.

Good bye friend. May you drive tanks and direct trains on the other side

Which science? Those who can say things broadly about the nature of the universe would be astrophysics, and those who could ever possibly know whether or not our brains are constructed in a way that facilitates real choice would be neurologists.

There are studies where scientists can predict 6 seconds when a decision was made before the study subjects was aware of it. Google it.

They can't predict even close to 100%. It just increases their chances of guessing right by less than 10%.

I wish I could find the article/video now... But it's certainly not as easy as you're trying to make it sound

Ah, here it is.

http://philosophybites.com/2012/05/adina-roskies-on-neuroscience-and-free-will.html

"In essence, she argues that it is a mistake to think that work in neuroscience could in any way threaten our sense that human choice is indeterministic. If we learn that the universe is deterministic, it will have to be from discoveries in physics. Perhaps physics will show that the universe is deterministic, perhaps it won't... but neuroscience won't end up settling the question either way. (After all, theoretical models in neuroscience are always probabilistic.) "

No, you could easily think 'well, the universe is deterministic and I have no choices in life' and relieve yourself of any personal responsibility. I would never do that but it seems like the natural motivation of determinists. Otherwise, what difference does it make?

I understand that we don't have perfectly free will. Our behavior is influenced by all sorts of chemical reactions, etc... but that isn't the same as determinism. I think people that want to believe in determinism just want to pretend they have no responsibility for their actions in an effort to depersonalize themselves.

Personally, even if science determined, beyond any doubt, that the universe is 100% deterministic, I would still accept personal responsibility and ability to make decisions. I would never choose to go through life feeling like I have no personal responsibility.


General Name Thread.. Unisex names? by Shit Nurringforth - Tue, 28 Oct 2014 08:41:59 EST ID:E+pImF7q No.380228 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Let's talk names, /cd/. How'd you pick yours? How long ago did you pick it out and do you still like it? I'm not actually "out" but I have been thinking about names a lot lately. I'm about 6 months into HRT and it's actually getting hard to hide this from everyone. I have been thinking about going with a gender neutral name, like Jamie or Reese. I actually think Duncan would be a really cute name for a girl. Has anyone actually gone with a gender neutral name? It seems a little indecisive to me to actually do this but there's a lot of benefits of having a gender neutral name. I'd actually be able to go ahead and change it for one. I also buy a lot of clothes online and it feels a little awkward having it addressed to the name I was given, esp. when it's all girls' clothes..

Also, general name thread.

I chose Vivian, the root word is latin for life and I like V names, I'm only 2 months into HRT though and basically no one calls me that yet. I might change it, I don't know yet.

When you have to live like us, choosing a unisex name is setting yourself up for hardship. Just don't.

If I were to choose a gender neutral name then it would give me the option of having it growing with me. I'd go ahead and do the name change and no one would clock me from name alone. Eventually no one would think anything of it just as if a cis female were named Jordan or Logan. (At least that's the hope.. ). I love feminine names but do I think a name like "Allison" is going to fit me as they would a cis female? I just don't know. What about when your name is "Alice" but with the little "M" on your ID card still? How are you going to secure a job for things like hormones and transition expenses? There are the things that concern me anyways..

The name should fit your personality more than your appearance, if that makes any sense.

IHP keeps rejecting my Entropay card. Anyone else here experiencing this? I talked to their customer support, and they whitelisted my card. Yet it still doesn't work.

What should I do? Are there any other decent sites to get my meds?

Were you logged in when you tried it? I got it working for myself after logging out. Either it hates my account or IHP most likely changed the checkout forms.

This is my take on what went wrong:
IHP uses two checkout forms, one for registered users, and non-registered. Both are read by the server in the same way. The non-registered had an extra line added to it which asks for a prescription, and the server had to be updated to read the new form. Problem is they forgot to change the form for registered users.

That's a big issue with redundancy. When you change it in one place, you need to change it everywhere else. However, I'm not sure if that was the case. I'm drawing this conclusion from retyping everything, trying several different payment methods, and working ONLY after logging out. Maybe IHP bans accounts for not sending in those prescriptions.



tl;dr:
Logout and complete your transaction.

They will take western unions to their employee in Vanuatu, you just have to get a hold of them via their support emails or their phone service. They shouldn't need a script for doing it that way.

It's an extra 20-30 buck for the international WU, but if you're SOL on payment options due to rejected cards or w/e, it gets the job did. They're bending over backwards for customer service since their profits have plummeted due to prescriptions being "necessary".

IHP changes card processors every couple of months. Most peoples payment issues stem from this because each one they switch to shits on the half it was working for to make it work for the half it wasn't.

To addend, I've been keeping up with IHP's adorably charming support lady about their card processor. They just fucked with their card processors again not less than a month ago
