/cd/ Transgender Discussion
How long did it take you to decide to transition.I've been thinking about it for 2 years on an off.Had been in denial for about five before that.When I was little I had said tendancies; liking dolls playing as female characters in vidya.But I haven't made the decision to just do it. I am still mulling other options such as just being that guy; we all know that guy, you know the one I'm talking about.
>Do you guys in 'murrica realy have those places that are stuck in the 40's?Most adults and senoir citizens in America have a world view that is a more modern version of the one people has in the 1950's. Everyone here is someone intolerant and bigoted.
>Do you guys in 'murrica realy have those places that are stuck in the 40's?
don't really know how i got here but around 16/17 years old i found this board (like 2011 or 2012) and i'd already been very uncomfortable with my body especially through puberty so after a year of lurking and deciding i decided i'd buy hormones. got 2 months in and parents tossed them. counsellors were opposed. "moved on" and fast forward 2 years and i'm starting again at 19/20 hooray
>>376304Yes, women cycle electricity producing bicycles at home, because its womans job to take care of the house and men go to pick up water from the well cuz its a male job to suply for the family
I just ordered three months worth of mones. My first hormones. What did you do with your life today /cd/?
>>376239They are honest with themselves. They magically happen to be straight and more feminine than me. My life is worse than theres specifically because of this freaky shit that afflicted my life.
Woke up around 3pm, made some tea and am drinking it next to my bestie/roommate. I'm trying to wake up enough to start getting ready for a party at a friends cabin tonight. Should be a good evening.
>>376243>>376243>freaky shit that afflicted my life. get on the hormones be a femme boy be supper chill,exercise,relax,get a little drunk; transition relax.>inb4 alcohol and hormones cause cirrhosis and inhibit absorption.
>freaky shit that afflicted my life.
>inb4 alcohol and hormones cause cirrhosis and inhibit absorption.
>>376277I am transitioning. I am 6 months on hrt. I was never a femme boy. Unfortunately i really liked exercising so instead of getting pretty like the fat beards who just needed to shave an lose weight i have to deal with still being a block of muscle
>>376295Thats why I dont work out alot. Just enough to get some endorphins in my life.
so, curious, and the web is oddly silent on the matterwhat happens if say, I take hormones for a few months, decide it ain't me for whatever reason, and then stopi get that any breast/nipple development is permanent. but what happens to the rest of my endocrine system/body? will I end up back at baseline (with tits) eventually? or will I be stuck somewhere in the middle.
>>376178Like running out of money like going to jail or becoming homless.Tour chances of being trans and bouncing back are lower than of you were CIS
>>376211> running out of money like going to jail or becoming homlessi'm talkin bout biological issues here, not social ones
> running out of money like going to jail or becoming homless
>>376216>>376216Well hormonaly your system could reject them,because it isnt want you need.If you suddenly go off you can have adverse reactions.Theres a long list.
In my experience, I took a lower dose of estrogen and no antiandrogens and I basically came right back to normal, the breast tissue even went away (1-2 years). On the other hand, I don't think I'll ever develop full breasts now that I committed myself to being trans. I never had any fertility tests because they were too expensive but I continued normal late-male development (brow bossing, facial bone growth).>>376231I don't think you have any clue how hormones work. Your body does not "reject" hormones like some foreign body. Your body produces these hormones at lower levels normally and are part of a functioning equilibrium. Going off hormones suddenly will not cause adverse reactions in normal circumstances besides psychological ones. If you have a physiological condition comorbid with hormone levels you should be doing this under supervision with a doctor. Otherwise, it's mostly safe to take hormones. I would recommend for the sake of your psychological health to commit to it, otherwise you might be like me with permanent 12 year old boobs.
I came out to my sister a few months ago and didn't see and talked to her much. I made progress, started hrt went almost fulltime although my voice is shit.Now I'm visiting her and can't get over the feeling of how much prettier she is than me. I mean I'm lucky for a transgirl but standing next to my sister I just feel like a bad joke. Plus I feel bad that I replaced the figure of her well respected older brother with this joke and I'm afraid that she is ashamed of me. Idk I know I shouldn't feel that way but I just can't help myself. I feel way uneasy around her.
>>376130>go outside>beautiful girls everywhere
>go outside>beautiful girls everywhere
>>376072The women in my family have such great genes, thinking about how things could have been if I was born female makes me kind of bitter.I think I'll go buy some ice cream.
>>376129Meh, I find people do sucky things and stuff, but I don't like to write them off as an inherently and thoroughly only sucky person. Not that I'm gonna hang around lol. I'm just like empathy and understanding and all that. I tend to think that people chronically suck because of issues within themselves but I am aware I don't really know lol. And I don't really feel that you control your thoughts per se, but how you react or regard them is perhaps something else, as far as never thinking certain thoughts. Though I think you can get your mind to regularly go to different thought patterns, mindfulness, neuroplasticity, etc. Besides! I was just countering that thinking negative thoughts about other people to make yourself feel better is not really a good way to go about feeling better about yourself =P imoAcknowledge and let it pass is good =) haha =P
Story of my life, Except even with my friends I feel it and I have to try really damn hard to look decent
When you're all round her or any other girl who makes you feel not as good try somethin like breath meditation or whatnot, if you can focus on your breathing and convos going on and such at the same time. Just put your focus on something other than the thoughts, forced/willed focus that is lol. If you don't feed thoughts with attention they die away eventually, for me atleast but maybe it works for others. & do the same or figure out something for the thoughts of no longer being the respectable older brother. Respectable qualities in a person are not at all dependent on gender, if you're nice you're nice, if you're honest you're honest etc etc. dicks and vajs and everything inbetween and anywhere else don't make one bit of difference, such qualities are mental things. You can still be the same person, and perhaps even more so now that you're going down a path that your mind's probably been nagging you towards and taking up thought in the first place maybe? Just try meditation or some other thing to help tame and control your negative thoughts. Mainly just that if your mind is taken up by thoughts of not being good enough and being a source of shame and your feelings taken up by the same then it'll be really hard to fully invest yourself in normal convo and bonding and such with her and others and that can show. If she acts odd that's just normal, that happens with -any- change to appearance, even a forever bearded guy merely shaving once or some uber tomboy type throwin on a dress will make people pause and be atleast a bit odd, it's just a completely normal reaction, just adjusting to possibly new 'constants' in the minds efforts to define particular people and things. This is a much more drastic sort of change, not bad, just more to get used to might take a bit more time than those examples purely cause there's a lot more goin on. Not sure how helpful all this is really though for you, i'm not trans at all i just like learning about anything so was goin through this board lol and seen something i could possibly help with but ya
What's 420chans opinion, I'm finally deciding to go ahead and try starting hormones and embracing this life I've been afraid to follow but instead to embrace it. I think my first cock I sucked and fucked cemented it now hehe.. you think I'll eventually end up passing nicely?
>>376131>>376131OP essentially equates liking cocks with being trans.OP feels that taking hormones will enhance the euphoria of liking cock.OP is need to understand that being a cock burglar does not mean that hormones are needed.
>>376132I took it as OP enjoys looking and feeling a certain way towards men. A dynamic found only in the F/M relationship.
>>375970That's likely to get you killed, asking straight men from the south whether they'd fuck you. (GA as in Georgia, right?) It may not help everyone, but being with a man helped me come to terms with it too. I usually put up a facade around men, being with him though I felt like I could really be myself.
>>376147probs referring to /ga/
>>376147>>376147/ga/ as in gay.>That's likely to get you killed, asking straight men from the south whether they'd fuck you.There are many closeted men who would pound that if they posted on craigslist.
>That's likely to get you killed, asking straight men from the south whether they'd fuck you.
I got a referral from my GP a couple of weeks ago to a gender specialist. From what I've heard, he's the specific one in my city that other trans* people see to get hormones, so essentially this is my only option.This is all well and good, but apparently the wait time to get my first appointment is 3-4 months. In this couple of weeks I've been daydreaming about starting HRT more and more and am feeling dysphoric far more frequently.Does /cd/ have any tips for coping with this agonizing dysphoric wait before I can hopefully become myself? Picture unrelated.
>>376097iffy? thats pretty standard actually. most ppl work themselves up to 8mg so that its not a shock to their body and you wouldnt be below or over 100 spiro unless there was a biological reasonf or you to. so really if you have a fairly healthy body then its pretty straight forward actually
>>376118I was actually under the impression that 4mg was as high as it went. Maybe it's an age thing?
>>3761194 mg is indeed the standard dose, which works for the vast majority of people. You can justify a higher (or lower) dose if your blood work is off though.
>>375973My doc said to remain on the 200 mg lol but I'll keep you in mind xD
>>375763Feel you, I passed the time reading cheap amazon kimdlenbooks about transitioning to pass the time but it essentially made me feel crappier, my suggestion is maybe a diet change just to make yourself feel like you've started something at least small, I'm not an expert but I'm sure you can find some helpful stuff about it
Hi there, I have an appointment to see Dr. Curtis in less than a month and i am looking for some advice on what to expect from going private with him. I am interested to find out the timescale of the whole process, advice on what to expect during the initial assessment, If I will be able to eventually get a prescription for mones from the NHS through Dr. Curtis.I have already looked further afield and am just looking to gather as much information as I can, Thank you.
>>376004Ah great, I don't know where I got that idea from, and for £900 or so, i think it'll be worth it, i HATE waiting for this...I can't wait to get on track (:
Honestly? He's a bit of a quack and is very hungry for our money. You'll definitely get your hormones regardless of your circumstances. It takes around 3 months but you can get fast tracked and skip his shrink if you've already had 6 therapy sessions somewhere else before seeing him.
>>375153> I swear to god I will jump out this fucking window if I have to wait a year to start treatment>a yearAHAHAYeah try 2 and a half fucking years before even an initial appointment. I've been shipped around doing the basics. I've had 3 people question me to make sure I'm not mentally ill, one sex therapist, a slew of blood tests and having to check in with my GP at least every month or two. It's absolute bullshit to the highest degree. I'm finally in but due to the stress of having 0 money 0 job and 0 time I've missed an appointment and if I miss another I have to start all over again. Fuck the NHS. I've been on hormones for over 2 years and they've done fuck-all to help me apart from blood tests. I tried committing suicide recently, and in the first ever appointment with a gender therapist, she said she might have to "hold back" treatment because I was suicidal too recently. I don't even give a shit about needing help apart from the fucking surgery and to be legally recognised as a woman, and chances are I'll pay for the surgery anyway because there's no surgeon on the NHS that can do a half-decent job and knows any techniques apart from the archaic penile inversion.
> I swear to god I will jump out this fucking window if I have to wait a year to start treatment>a year
>>376002I'm back home for the summer now but will be back in Brighton come september, sorry. I'll be more than keen on that drink then, but I dunno how I can find you... :/
>>376032i don't know, i'd totes be up for it but i don't know how to get around the whole no contact details thing...godamnit.
me tranny rate
you're SOOOO funny posting my pics here on /cd/ and telling everyone i'm an ftm, you're really bullying me!to all the /cd/ lurkers, I apologize for these retards spinning a tale about me. they don't like me on their imageboard, so they try to make me leave constantly, by calling my parents, insulting me, etc.please disregard the hatersI'm a guy btw
rated M for mature
>>376112sounds like you guys should take this to / S D /theyre into all kinds of humiliation over there
>>376121also sounds like if the group of people you socialize with is going to be so dis-respectful to other communities then you have poor taste in people
Hi seedee.How many of you masturbate? As in jerking off? I usually masturbate in a different way but today I was feeling little horns and the only way I could do it was jerking off. So I did. I didn't come or anything, but now here I am. It feels wrong and I feel somewhat guilty. Is doing this a bad thing? Should I feel bad? Pic totally unrelated.
>>376099I'm on hormones, but I can't increase dosage because of money issues. Chemical castration was a serious part of the reason I was happy to get onto HRT, and it isn't nearly as bad now(I have less T than a born woman does) but I want it to be complete. Have been considering orchi, as I'm not sure about SRS...
>>376100I would strong advise looking at chemical castration approaches as opposed to an orchi. If your T is already that low, an orchi is not going to make a difference. Also if you get an orchi, you're severely limiting future SRS options.
>>376101I'm not sure what other chemical castration things I can ask about. I'm fine with no longer feeling sexual pleasure -happy with it, even. Have any of you done something like this before?I'm feeling actual hope.
>>376102Ask about Depo-Provera.
I masturbate occasionally when I feel the urge to. Pre-HRT, my penis caused me a lot of dysphoria just by existing. Post-HRT, it doesn't bother me -- I can touch it and have it touched without it worrying me. I don't think I could penetrate, and that's where I draw the line, but everything else is ok.I prefer masturbating with anal toys though; jerking off doesn't bother me, but it also doesn't actually feel good. It doesn't feel like much of anything; it's a satisfaction of an urge, similar to urinating, not something enjoyable. Masturbating with a toy anally, though, is really nice.HRT caused my dysphoria, which was considerable, to dwindle to nonexistence.
I need some advice. I am passing MtF after voice surgery, planning to undergo SRS soon. I am in a relationship with a man for almost half of the year now. The problem is this - he doesn't know i am transgender. We are very close and we get very intimate sometimes. I managed to hide my genitalia from him - we basically agreed to not have sex because i convinced him that i have some problem regarding my sex organs and we can't have sex before surgery of some sort.Should i tell him I am TS before SRS? After SRS?Should i tell him about it at all?And finally - how i am supposed to tell him about that? I feel that i want him to know that but i have absolutely no idea how to do it. I am really scared that the longer i wait, the worse one of his possible reactions can be. He doesn't seem to like LGBT people, but I noticed once that he referred to a known MtF as "she" - should i take it as positive sign? I don't want to lose him... I really love him and i feel loved too.I apologize if my english sucks. Pic unrelated.
>>375955somehow I missed that part, I knew it was long distance!!
Damn, /cd/ I expect better of y'all. Be constructive here, please.>>375930You sound fucking pathetic, coming here to hate on a stranger.. as if they are your enemy. As if you actually are affected by them. Pull your head out of your ass and realize your words can be powerful, but yours are just smelly shit beneath a dog's asshole.OP, follow your heart. You will know when the time is right to tell them, and if things go sour then that is how it was meant to be. You WILL find another person who loves you. I PROMISE. Don't be afraid to take a step forward; you will find yourself relieved. Stay grateful that you are loved, but remember that part of love is trust. Allow yourself to trust your partner. If he reacts negatively, say goodbye with love. Take care of what needs to be done and LOVE YOURSELF FIRST!
>>375980Your obviously missing the whole point of the thread, morals aside thats not the issue. The issue is whats she doing is dangerous, and its pretty basic knowledge as far as Trans issues go. Thats why people are coming for her. If there wasnt some much violence towards trans people we would not care. But the FACT is that this is a major reason why Trans people get murdered....
>>375998Nice... I JUST CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT WORD PREVENTS ME FROM POSTING MY COMPLETELY HARMLESS POST.I've allready changed any word that might have been inappropriate for ANY person in the world... and I'm still not allowed to post.PENETRATE THIS FECAL MATTER.
>>376000Can you tell us a little about what your post was about? are you posting links? are you mentioning contact details?
>>376003I was asking for some shaving advice...
>>375996Same image as on /lgbt/ ... So it's about shaving?
>>376025Are you a wizzard?
I'm trying to figure out which bra I should get. By boobs are fairly small (AA) but through some t-shirts my nipples are poking through so I need something to cover them up. I ordered some sport bras and they fit fairly well but they feel like they are to warm to be worn unter a shirt.What models should I look for? I'm looking for comfy and stealth ones as for a push-up too (for certain occasions)
>>375938Shit nigga, calm down, you look fine.
>>375957yeah sorry i >>375926 forgot to say you look fine. Its just something i noticed. you have a smaller face than most transwomen.My advice?Put on heaps of weight. then your body will fill out. You wont be a slim model, unless you really work atr the gym and even then no guarantee, but people will not see how big your bones are!
>>375878You look beautiful! I like your style; that's not an old lady shirt to me.. As others have said, go try on bras!! That's the only way to ensure you don't waste your time and money. Don't be afraid, my love! Walmart and Target have surprisingly decent bras. If you MUST order them online, check out Aerie. They have comfy, smaller cup bras.
>>375979thx for the kind words!
