Telling a potential new roommate that I'm transitioning. by Ernest Buzzbanks - Mon, 17 Mar 2014 03:31:25 EST ID:p0f9+u4y No.368017 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I have a possible new roommate moving in, replacing an old one.

I hold the lease on the apartment, although she'd be on it too if she moves in.

However, I have not told her that I'm transitioning. I'm working on week 3 of hormones right now.

Should I tell her? Do you guys have experience on the matter? Advice to give?

I've been talking with her for a few days and she seems pretty cool. Stoner, just general nice person, etc.

I don't know why she needs to know at this point. Or ever, really.

I could see needing to tell her if she were planning on moving in with a female who was planning on taking T and becoming a 200 lb. yoked Buck Angel type. But I don't see how your transition would be threatening to her in any way.

I suppose telling her would allow you to gauge whether she's going to be unpleasant about your transition, in which case you probably wouldn't want her for a roommate.

Here's how it went - she didn't even say anything about it. But, she kept being super stoked about moving in, when I talked to her later about her being able to move in, she was down, and she still seems to like me a lot, and nothing's changed at all. So I'm just going to assume she doesn't give a shit lol.

I'm doing DIY HRT. Anyone have any stories about how easy it is to take hormones through airport security to other countries? I've done it domestically before and see that the TSA doesn't check medication (at least on carryon bags), which is nice, but what about elsewhere (like, theoretically, Japan)?

It's not really "airport security" you need to worry about, it's customs and immigration. They're the ones who enforce the country's laws re: importation of medicines.

If you're interested in traveling to Japan, you'll definitely want to check things out beforehand. My sister-in-law is Japanese and she has often complained about how difficult it is to get hormonal birth control over there. They're weird about some things. I guess the government is pissy about hormones because of the low birth rate.

I don't know if that would affect hormones for HRT, but know before you go.

Stallone got hassled by Australian customs a while back because he brought testosterone into the country. He's prescribed it, 'cause he's over 60 now, and his career depends on being ripped, which is pretty tough without T when you're a senior citizen. Australia DGAF about his prescription.

>but what made you transition?

After a lot of reflection it just seemed like the right thing to do. That feeling had been there strongly between 4-11, and then was this weird confusing/depressing clusterfuck from 12-18. At 19 it just seemed I wasn't getting any younger and I made a terrifying leap, glad I did.

It's just hard to deny it after a while... men don't want to be girls. Whatever age you're at OP it isn't normal to be longing to be a woman... that's something transsexuals do. You shouldn't doubt yourself.

My life was in shambles and had been for quite awhile. I lived distraction to distraction, panic attack to panic attack, yearning for death to embrace me and end the suffering. Unable to leave the house or interact with strangers without severe anxiety. I started to realize that I wasn't going to have a worthwhile life until I took action, as scary as that might be. So I started taking baby steps, and gradually it got done. Looking back I was a fool for ever hesitating and letting it get that bad in the first place.

For context, I started visiting this board three years before I transitioned.

Sure.

If you're planning to come out at some point in the future then start writing a letter. Make it detailed with sources, treat it like you would a research paper on yourself. Even if you don't send the letter it will be good for you and help you gain confidence.

Start practicing voice, its never too early.

If you're any bit overweight then try to slim down.

Start thinking about how you'll finance transition, this may seem daunting especially if you're poor like me. DIY HRT can be cheaper and more available, so you may want to go ahead and start thinking about that. I had planned to go the informed consent route but it proved too expensive. Lets just say that I don't eat out or buy video games anymore.

Start building your wardrobe with some androgynous clothing that will be useful both now and later.

The trans community sucks in many ways, its petty, fragmented, and sometimes outright obnoxious. Either its a circle jerk, a ruthless game of "who's better", or just entirely absent when you need it. Its bad enough that post transition you feel like ignoring the whole mess altogether. You're part of a tiny embattled minority that is divided over nothing but petty validation games. Why?

Here are some of the divisions:

Who is passable?:
>"I don't want to associate with unpassable transsexuals because they might out me or give me dysphoria."
Throw in a hint of Just-World Hypothesis as a justification for thinking less of the unpassable.
"Hons"

Stage of transition:
>"Now that I've had SRS I'm a real woman."
People wielding treatments for dysphoria like there video game achievements showing how "dedicated" they are.

Official or DIY HRT:
>"If you DIY then you're self-harming, only official gets results."

>Without younger people willing to out themselves this is the case. By hiding we perpetuate the need to hide. I admit that I do it, but I'd like to imagine that we could make a world where it wasn't necessary or desirable.
the internet is here though and as long as you do just a little bit of searching you'll eventually come across an internet community with younger trans people. it allows us to inspire people without putting ourselves at risk for discrimination

>lol. Its more that I respect the *need* for a neutral pronoun. They/their/them seems to be catching on sufficiently that the others may fall to the wayside.
I can, too and I hope that that does catch on. but this whole "everyone gets new pronouns!" thing is really dumb and it will die very quickly as soon as they try to take their tumblr ideology into real life

and the reason people don't like tumblr is because you get people saying they want to be men because they don't fit stereotypes for women to a T, and at the same time don't want to take testosterone or stop wearing makeup and dresses. I can't help but go WHHYYY when these people say they're trans, why why why?

there's a major difference between truly feeling like you don't fit in between the two sexes, and saying "oh I don't wanna be a girl anymore because this new label I found on tumblr sounds cool!"

Janice Raymond, who was the TERF who removed trans care and discrimination protection, said that transsexuals transition because they're unhappy with their gender role, that they prefere the opposite sex's gender role so they change their sex to match up with the gender role... Which I think is why she thought transsexualism was immoral, though I would think she had a lot of other reasons as well.
The tumblr kids says that sometimes gender roles and expectations causes "dysphoria", and because of that psuedo-social dysphoria they are "trans*" (and not cis, even though they're comfortable with their sex), also I've seen some that basically say that sometimes that psuedo-social dysphoria becomes so severe that people transition. They do buy into the "gender = gender roles" thing, as they tend to be into feminism. To them being trans is basically a "social phenomenon", and not a medical condition (also deny the idea of "brain sex"), and those who consider it a medical condition and thinks that you need body/sex dysphoria to be trans are "truscum". It's fucked up, it's like a very weird version of TERFism, it's quite absurd really.

trans-exclusionary radical feminism

they refuse to see trans women as women and trans men as men, won't allow trans women into women-only events, and many want to prevent trans people from getting the help they need (at least from what I understand on the last part)

Since this is something that I've seen lots of people worrying about on the board, I'm curious: what's the issues with stopping HRT, whether it's prescribed or DIY? I could see stuff like fat distribution going out of wack, but that's easily fixable once you get back on them. Or does stopping/pausing HRT lead to whatever breasts you've grown getting gobbled back up by your body or something?

The worst part about going off HRT is just the overall aura of masculinity that comes back, even in days. Any body or facial hair you have will grow faster and darker, breakouts from the rapid hormone swings, bulky muscle will start to come back, just a terrible feeling overall.

Hey /cd/, I'm planning on having srs in the next couple years. I really need it, but I'm just working on saving up the money. Right now though I've got a certificate for 3 lasering sessions and the money to do more as needed. I wanted to deal with my hair down there that way when I do have the money I'll already have that out of the way.

I'm not sure though, is there a standard pattern for where I need it lasered for any doctor? I know some doctors don't require it, but that doesn't change the fact that in those cases you can end up getting hair in your vagina. I don't want to risk that at all, and it can't hurt to have it done even if the doctor doesn't require it. Plus shaving my bikini line is a pain anyway.

Yeah, like I said I already have a certificate for 3 free lasering sessions, and I've already done my face, and my parents will cover whatever is left. I'd just rather have it done than worry about any possibility of having hair in my vagina eventually. It can happen with any surgeon, since hair grows through growth cycles and may not be completely eliminated by the surgeon.
