I don't think I'm ever going to have the money to pay out of pocket for a big name FFS surgeon and I'm not sure how I'd go about finding insurance that covers it, I can imagine myself saving up at least a few thousand over the next couple years though, so could any plastic surgeon who can do genioplasty for regular women work with this? Or does that still require special experience? That's really the dead-ringer in my mind, or at least the thing I'm most personally dissatisfied with, I mean the nose, jaw and brow are also not necessarily ideal but the chin just seems untenable, and I'm coming up on 2 and a half years at this point so I'm not sure I hold out much hope of it getting better, that's another thing that's odd, I'm markedly less satisfied with my appearance now than I was a year ago, I feel almost like I'm going backwards, I don't know if I was wrong then or am wrong now, but I miss it. maybe if I gain weight, on the one hand I'd be fatter but on the other maybe that would help

anyway I'm trailing off anyone with more minor things have experience just getting plastic surgery without the whole deal? I figure genioplasty now, maybe rhinoplasty a little later on, I dont really give a shit about anything else if I'm being honest, maybe as I age something else will come up that I want to do something about

Also do you usually have to have all the money up front or do they do payment plans or something like that

This'll probably do honestly, I can exist pretty comfortably as this I think, probably as I get older the underlying bone structure will become more prominent and I'll want it then, but definitely after SRS, it's just a lot of work to keep up, electrolysis will make it quite a bit easier though, and I can start that relatively soon, and then I won't be paranoid about having missed something or my makeup wearing off

A pointless thread.

Is anyone who was posting between 2009 to 2013 around? How are you doing? If not that's okay.

I used to come here everyday after highschool when I was a teenager and I found this board really pleasant. I would come home and smoke a bowl and read pages and pages of the never ending discussion about hormones, clothing, triumph and sorrow.

It was nice because seedy cuties taught me so much, they taught me how to manage my difficult hair and about makeup and passing. I was pretty fat as well and the tough love culture here convinced me to become skinny right before coming of age. I grew up in a smallish redneck town with 34,000 people and couldn't have learned any of it without /cd/, and while everyone acted bleak and with a stark honesty you were mostly all pretty nice people. When I finally moved in early 2012 to the big city and started taking hormones it was a wonderful feeling to finally be one of those /cd/ posters who popped skittles and posted in passing threads.

I stopped counting so constantly but in a few months I hit 5 years on hormones. It's weird that all of the faces from back then will all be in their late 20s or early 30s now, I'm 24 myself. Being a tranny is weird, my life has gone in a direction I never thought it would.

Although it slowed down some when that lgbt board came out on a different imageboard, it's nice to see this place hasn't changed much.

>I want to not blame myself too hard because really, who actually fucking transitioned in the 00s? Like some people, sure, but basically fucking nobody. But I still feel really stupid and that it's all my fault.

Very much nothing to blame oneself over. Lucky to remain housed if you were out as a minor back then--physical transition was practically impossible. I knew I was trans at 13 (2004), was out a few years later and ready to transition,but my family rejected me hard, as was typical, and I had to wait until the day I turned 18 to sneak off and start the process.

Bizarre as she may be, if you want a snapshot of what it was like to be out or just knowingly trans back then, Jennifer Diane Reitz's letters are actually a pretty good source.
http://www.transsexual.org/letters17.html
Her advice to a 14-year-old here would have been correct. Keep your head down, try not to get abused or killed, wait it out. Someone's parents would have to not only consent, but take them around to various doctors until they found one sympathetic and knowledgeable (or one of the few trans clinics in the US) to get help--without insurance coverage. Few people had access to aboveboard medical transition even if they knew they were trans and able to come out. Their families prevented it, through indifference or malice.

DIY was not super safe (in the random-pills sense or the family-discovering-it sense) or reliable, required finding one of the few sources that could tell you how to do that plus having a steady supply of money of your own and the ability to get and access a PO box. I couldn't have bc DIY testosterone was not a thing then, but even for trans girls I knew it was usually too difficult.

99% of the people I knew who physically transitioned in the 90s or early naughts did so as adults, usually working a shitton of miserable jobs, and it utterly destroyed part of their social lives (and sometimes their career chances or schooling) to do so.

I'd have a day off from school here or there but never got suspended, so the chances I happened on something like that were so small. Sure I landed on Susan's or Laura's at some point, but don't remember getting very far in. It was all just the same to any little mention in media or whatever that I saw - "transvestites" wearing women's clothes, and there's nothing special about that. I remember one time when I was a younger/mid teen and took one of the brief rare chances I could while alone to crossdress (and I use that word because at the time that's literally as far as I knew how deep the rabbit hole goes) and thinking "I can't wait to be like 26 so I'll be moved out and alone and can wear whatever clothes I want all the time!". What an ignorant sap. I didn't even see any porn or masturbate until I was 16. And when I saw the first shemale/trap porn all I thought was how she was just born lucky to end up feminine.

>unless you had a very particular family
Yeah, I'm sure I didn't. I blame a lot of neuroses over femininity on them. But I don't think they would have thrown me on the street if I had self medded or something. It's not like I even have been using legit sources for the majority of my transition anyway, so why would it matter?

>>411085
>>411081
And the fact that you're all assuming I'm talking exclusively about early teens and not also late makes it hurt even more. 18 would have been life changing for me compared to how I am now. Like I won't begrudge you a complaint about it being "another negative" though to me it's like a guh, because you deserve the ability by being as old, and I get to the average person born 20 years before me my own complaints could cause the same feeling.

I just don't have an excuse really, I fucked up. I had money to my name, I went to a progressive uni that could have provided me with resources. But I didn't and I even actively made things worse for myself in the manner of my ignorance. And here in front of me are several examples of people around my time, with probably really no more resources than me who still transitioned then. I didn't even have to make any particular effort to find you, you're just here. It makes it clear that it really just wasn't *that* hard; I fucked up and there's nobody else to blame.

Recently turned 18.. yay me. Got home tonight from work and my mom changed the locks to the house.

Her texts now read how unwelcome I am because of what I am choosing to be and I’m an adult so I’m on my own.

I don’t really have a great job.. I don’t have any of my clothes or my fucking medicine.

Things I paid for are inside but because I’m FTM, and she’s too concerned about making America great again.. I won’t be able to get my inhaler or underwear.

Can I call the police to at least let me retrieve my things?

My friend is letting me crash at his place tonight but he also lives with his family and they don’t know I’m here.. I’m just happy not to be outside but what can I do?

I went through something similar as well and can second this.

Only real suggestion I can make in this situation is to to try accessing any local trans services you might have around (if you don't have any friends to let you stay with them long-term), or if there are none and this is like a rural area, consider moving to the nearest city somehow. I cannot imagine trying to break into a new city with nothing today, it was hard enough a decade ago.

How do you strike the proper balance between supporting and celebrating the lives of legitimate trans individuals without propagandizing so much about transgenderism that you end up indoctrinating a bunch of impressionable youngins to pursue transgenderism as a personality quirk?

"Size" actually came up for me in Suporn, weirdly, but it was depth (and cosmetic). A lot of the push for heterosexuality by certain people was related to me having top level of depth and good cosmetic, and most of them saw it as a waste for my vagina to not be used by men. Weird vagina envy too from some staff members. Saying things like "I wish I could take a penis as long/big as you". And if you had little depth and to a lesser degree poor cosmetic (lowest for Suporn is about 5.5, avg 6-6.5, with highest around 8) they behaved coolly towards you, like it was not even worth attempting to assimilate you, unless you were particularly passable. Really, "unqualifiedly heterosexual barbie dolls".

>Multiple doctors pushing and pushing me to get a hysto
A trans man friend actually had the opposite issue. He had wanted a hysto for many years but the doctors would try to dismiss his desires for it and SRS generally by suggesting that in mid/late 50s his desire for a penis was frivolous. He had his stage 1 date delayed by over 5 years getting jerked around by psychiatrists because of his unrelated serious depression. He had issues with top surgery almost getting not happening as well. Really put him in some dark places in the name of Helping.

>>410975

>Holy shit
To make this story even worse, the picture I drew and nearly had my surgery stopped over was of a close (cis het) friend and I and her dog. The cis het woman who was like a mentor to me and a majorly supportive figure to me at the time was the "androgynous" woman. So the homophobic response was them just looking for things to be uncharitable about.

>Oh my god. I would want to know that story though... lots of our stuff gets brushed off at the margins.
Suporn SRS is notoriously hard. People often go in underestimating the difficulty of recovery and end up with post-op depression and just want to go home. I do think that her parents should not have agreed to accompany her home, and that if she had come to the group breakfast other patients probably would've been able to help support her because it was like a big sorority in some ways.

The fact that you've already been through the virilizing effects of testosterone does not mean taking estrogen does "absolutely nothing" even if you don't pass at all some people find their mental states are at least improved and you still have changes that happen in your body. There's also always the risk that the doctor just isn't dosing you properly.

I’m a trans PhD researcher seeking participants for a research study on transgender people on the political right. This study is meant to understand participants' beliefs and their relationship with the trans community as a whole. The study involves a short screening survey and interview conducted via email. The interview asks questions about participants’ beliefs and experiences. Qualified participants will be 18+, live in the United States, identify as transgender/trans/transsexual/nonbinary/etc, and have viewpoints that align with the political right (conservatism, libertarianism, tea party, nationalist, individualist, etc).

If you are interested in participating, you can click the link below. The name, survey responses, and email address you provide are completely confidential. If you are worried about confidentiality, you can create a new email address and name to use for the study.

Any identifiable information will be held confidentially. You will be assigned a pseudonym in the study records and publications. You can contact me at trans1@ucsc.edu if you have any questions about the project.

I'm gonna second the above poster and say to immediately stop browsing 4chan if you do. I don't think lesbian trans women are really hated at all. Particularly not in real life trans spaces. At most there is some hostility towards them cause some (early on) can be kind of homophobic about str8 trans women, especially with older transitioners, or how many fail to understand that str8 trans women are not conventionally "privileged" by being hetero the way a cis woman would be when it is time for the fucking discourse. Most hate will just be your usual anti-gay ideology from people who believe all women should be completely heterosexual.

I'm a lesbian trans woman and I can't recall ever getting hate for being trans and a lesbian inside of the trans community outside of "HBSer/HSTS/TruTrans" idiots who are still just the garden variety homophobes I was talking about. Like the baby"transbians" are always fucking each other and causing drama and that is annoying but can't think of real hate that I've witnessed that str8 trans women didn't also get in their own way.

Find your nearest informed consent provided and transition, OP. Don't waste more time stressing out about this non-issue (as hard as that is). Good luck.

being straight i guess i always kind of assumed there were unique struggles to being a trans lesbian, because on top of the usual kind of prejudice and heteronormitivity cis lesbians deal with there, i've seen people who are transphobic use it as a way to invalidate them, especially ones who transitioned later in life and ones who are just now starting to transition, i feel like that's the prejudice /lgbt/ operating off of, just a way in true 4chan fashion to elevate oneself by putting every person who is even slightly more marginalized than you are down so that you can feel a little more "normal" with-in the system that's disenfranchised you to begin, kind of saying "i like dick and a had the privilege of transitioning a few years before you did therefor i'm more of a woman than you are", not realizing of course that the people they're pathetically trying to ingratiate themselves with hate them JUST as much, and see them exactly the same way

but yeah i have never heard of a real prejudice towards trans lesbians from with-in the trans community outside of places like 4chan and similar places, i think in the LGB- part there is a slightly more serious issue of transphobia in general, but again pretty much exclusively online, because people like Arielle Scarcella realize they get booted from real-life LGBT spaces pretty quickly for peddling their beliefs, and that's unambiguously a good thing in my mind, i don't give a shit if it just makes them quiet about it without changing their minds, because if a belief is as fringe as theirs are then by stopping the spread of it you snuff that idea out, and there's nothing they can do about it, they can childishly keep digging their feet in until they die and it won't matter

That is all very true. The sad part of /lgbt/'s obsession with validation through hierarchical bullshit is that there will always be someone who transitioned younger or whatever. It is such short-term gain when they could be using the energy to build meaningful communities.

"Cotton ceiling" discourse and anti-trans lesbians are very much an Online thing, for sure. In-person lesbian communities have had bad stuff over the years, like the entire MichFest saga, but lesbian and bi women have historically been a largely trans inclusive group no matter what the anti-trans crowd wants you to believe. You can get /lgbt/ types or Arielle Scarcellas at in-person trans or lesbian spaces but like you said they're not tolerated much. And they're not even exclusively anti-trans lesbian, they're anti-trans woman entirely.


Gonna reiterate for OP: go to your nearest informed consent and just transition. You can't change how these fools act or let it stop you from being yourself.

do you think the dudes who buy into this shit realize these are pretty close to gender identities? most of them always seem to get mad about non-binary people and trans people in general, and then go on to discuss how they all experience and express masculinity differently, try to work out "types" of men, and discuss how they identify with these gender neutral character traits through the lens of being the "kind" of man they think they are

i'm not saying these people are non-binary, i'm just saying i think this is way closer than a lot of people realize given what we currently know about gender, and it's always funny the people most likely to seriously identify with this shit will also vehemently oppose the idea gender is a spectrum

Yeah, I wouldn't call the Alpha/Beta/Omega/Sigma stuff individual genders but ways of doing gender. Like the whole foundation of this line of thinking is being really invested in maleness and masculinity. I say that as someone who doesn't buy into these "personality types" being real in the sense that they're exclusive to men or this rigidly defined and immutable though.

Some trans women have gender fantasies and some trans women are cockhounds. Yet you insist that the AGP typology must exist but that HSTS doesn't.

It is flawed from a conceptual level. Do all astronauts have a rocket fetish? Do all bakers, a bread-making fetish? Does every couple who has a child, have a breeding fetish? Some of all the above, I'm sure, do legitimately have these fetishes. There are many sexual proclivities under the sun, far more than any one individual to care to document. But it has no bearing on the act itself, as a universal. The only reason such a fine microscope is applied to transgenders is because transgenders are controversial. The controversy forms the conclusion, rather than a conclusion drawn from a pool of evidence. The choice to undergo the process of transition is multifactorial, as is the decision to become a baker, to become an astronaut, to have a child. Reduction to a single, all-encompassing rationale serves little purpose, function, or material gain in understanding the transgender condition, anymore than self-guided accusations that astronauts are all obsessed with pointy phallic steel objects makes one understand the condition of being an astronaut.

Such a reduction in core motivation serves one function, and only one function: demagogy. All other potential motivations are discounted, downplayed, and neglected in favor of an all-or-nothing position that plays more to the practitioner's own preconceptions than the experiences of the person in question. In the sphere of transgender communities itself, it, too, fulfills a desire: that to contradict, to ridicule, to disenfranchise, and to underline the experiences of those judged unworthy. All based on an idea that is not backed in hard science but the case observations of a single practitioner made in an era when the field was very much still susceptible to the same cognitive biases that would happily diagnose anyone even slightly outside the expected norms of human behavior as 'psychotic', regardless if any symptoms of psychosis were present.

It is time we dropped this idea and moved on. The world does not need another wastebin heuristic.

>For optimal breast growth it's often recommended to start with low oral estrogen and slowly increase it over the span of 6-12 months.

>The most essential component of transfeminine HRT is to get total testosterone below 50ng/dL and estradiol above 100pg/mL.

Based on data I've seen, about 150mg of spiro alone produces breast growth in about 50% of natal males. Less than that produces growth in less of them, and more in more. But keep in mind that it isn't spiro that causes breast growth, but rather sufficient suppression of testosterone. Check your levels every 3 months. It's not about the dose of spiro, it's about the estradiol and testosterone levels in your blood

I'm sure it factors in somewhat, but only to the degree that if they get more feedback than expected in one direction or the other it could affect their projections for reelection campaign. Like they probably have certain estimates they use to determine what they should support and how strongly and one of the factors is probably direct feedback, even if it's just a small factor.
Kind of proven by the absolutely seething response to sports by people including otherwise liberals making it a popular issue to come out against

Yep it's kind of a numbers game. The more you flood them with angry messages the more they'll have to think about their stance and if it'll affect their reelection chances. Also yay guess I'm still here

Times are changing? It's awful to see that media are letting them get away with it. Lia Thomas lost lol and it falls away completely.

Just confused? Overwhelmed?

Hi. I'm approaching a kind of point in my life where a lot of things are coming together and I'm a little overwhelmed with everything. I've quietly been on estrogen on and off (forcibly taken off a couple of times) over the past two or so years, but still haven't presented as a woman. The few clothes I had were taken from me anyway--my parents are an annoying kind of religious.

Everything is kind of catching up to me now. I thought hormones would be enough to keep me going, but a lot changed that I just never got to think about, and it's left me unable to even function sometimes. The sexuality I lost touch with somewhere halfway through finally came back, and I've ended up mostly liking men now. Romance and relationships are finally weighing on my mind after what feels like forever. And I'm getting tired of playing this weird role I've taken on to distract myself from what I'm longing to do: live as a woman.

But it also doesn't feel like I've had much of a choice. I'm not sure. I don't feel like I have a particularly feminine face or anything, though I guess my body would pass if I took care of it. The word "escape" has been on my mind forever but somehow I can't see past all these new things I'm being afflicted with anymore. I'm graduating in two months with a degree where I should have a job lined up by now, but I just haven't done anything for it. I feel lost, like nothing has really changed over the past three years or whatever, or like I didn't prepare correctly for when I eventually get out of this house. I've lived a really sheltered life, and I can't help but think in the back of my mind that everything is going to collapse once I leave my bubble.

And I guess I just don't get it. I feel like I've endured so much and yet like things have only now started. Maybe I just lack patience, but it's so embarrassing to feel so inexperienced and unready even now. I'm 21 and yet I feel like a child who just ran out of time. It's just frustrating. Sorry for such a scattered opening post, I've never really gathered my thoughts like this before. I'm just not sure what comes next.

I think that beyond transness these aren't really uncommon feelings (being unfulfilled or underachieving) for young millennials and zoomers. 21 is young though, even though it doesn't feel like it, and I still remember feeling like I hadn't accomplished enough (both professionally and transition related) at the point too.

Being trans and 21 can be hard, especially if you've been very sheltered and haven't had to fend for yourself, so yeah,once you're out there life will probably come along to burst your bubble, but it is about not backing down in order to have the kind of life you want. There have been multiple times in my life where I have had to make decisions that were hard and hurt me, like being homeless and moving someplace totally new with no other to rely on for support, because it was worth it to get to transition and live the life I wanted. You've already done some really hard shit like coming out it sounds like, even if you haven't lived up to your expectations of it, but from experience dwelling on the time I've wasted stuck in stasis hasn't ever made me feel better, so I would recommend instead focusing for now on what you can do to land smoothly wherever you're headed. I would say that comes next. Recommit yourself.
I don't know, don't want to just spit platitudes but don't give up on yourself yet OP.

I do think I just need to keep going with more confidence. I started hormones with just the impulse that I needed it to keep going, and I have zero regrets about it, even if things didn't happen as fast as I would have liked. Going back feels impossible, even though it seems tempting on the grounds that I'll live "harmoniously" with people. I think there is a real survival thing that keeps pushing me forward along transition even if it takes away what would otherwise appear to be a stable life. Things don't really seem to work that way, though, because I know if I tried living a "normal" life, I might as well cease to exist.

And as you say, I think that bubble will just burst naturally as I keep making decisions that make me happy. I'm sure I'll find a way to adapt as long as I focus on what I want. Thank you.

idk show us what you actually look like, outside, in direct sunlight, because as it stands, you look like a soft boy who's avoided the sun and is about 23.

you haven't even got electrolysis yet (7 years on hrt!)

it's very easy to pass in pics, in controlled lighting, everyone here knows it.

i like how op's virginity is your top concern, it's the kind of fixation you only really find in people who haven't lost their's yet

this is really low effort too, you're just banking on our self-loathing doing all the work for you, and picking on who you perceive to be the most vulnerable but plenty of us have beat the odds and gotten much higher than you'll ever get even with the handicap, everything that you so clearly project a desperate longing for I have and I'm sure OP has at least plenty more than you; a loving and supporting family, wonderful partner who I spend almost every day with, a fulfilling job doing something that actually matters, one where I'm deeply cared about, where I can see the difference I'm making every day and I'm just getting started in life, I get an entire life from start to finish entirely of my own design, and years and years of hard work and abject misery have finally paid off, I'm lucky as hell that I've gotten to where I'm at and now that I've made it I finally know what it's like to truly be loved, and to have a reason to wake up in the morning, and to be genuinely excited for what comes next not terrified of everything that can possibly go wrong, more people will cry at my funeral than will ever even know your name

go do something more important with your life
