Who here is end stage? As in stealth, or fully transitioned, or living your life satisfied with what you've done?

I'm on year 10 of hrt. Living as a normal woman for ages.

Hows your life going? How are you doing? Do you have much contact with the trans community? Do you want contact with other late stage tranners?

>I believe that the idea of sex proclamations in normal conversation is ridiculous and outdated
Asking for pronouns in conversation is just an act of common courtesy to people. Some people have struggled very hard just to be seen as they are, and every time someone screws up their pronoun it reminds them of times they have been hurt, and intentionally using the wrong one is an act of disrespect in and of itself. It's like intentionally mispronouncing someone's name just to be a shit.

I mostly hear "I'd be fine with any pronoun!" from cis people attempting to argue with trans people's needs, but among people who have had their identity in question, I would say it's much more common for people to have s strong preference. If it doesn't trouble you to use anything, that's fine, but we set up good social practices to accommodate for everyone. And it really doesn't take very long. Seconds.

>the politically active ones, tend to be adamant about "my penis is a female penis" ..Those type of extremists turned me off from the mainstream trans movement.
I mean, it actually makes less sense for someone who identifies as a woman and functions as a woman in everyday life (either by passing or by being identified as transfemme) to have a male penis. It's a penis which is located on a woman. It's not much more complicated than that. I had sex dysphoria, so my body parts felt wrong, but I have to admit that they were at least mine. It wasn't the breasts of some female version or me, or some random woman. They were breasts attached to a man.

Anyway, I don't know if there is even is a mainstream trans movement so much as a bunch of trans people in existence and some views which reach the cis majority's consciousness as representative (which may or may not be). when I poll other trans people about things I find a much greater plurality of views than someone else might expect.

>Just ignore the bits you pick and choose to believe from the same people telling you the things you don't.

Ive always loved that some people who pride themselves on their logic and reason and how they "fucking love science" falter immediately at literally the first thing that science tells them that they didn't already believe, everything that's at the bleeding edge of science now they'll reject just like the majority of people did in the past towards all the radical ideas they make fun of people for not believing

How does the fact she had it harder than younger trans people do now excuse her egregious transphobia? It sucks, it really sucks for her to live like that, and it's way more bewildering and upsetting than the same shit coming from a TERF, but not really any less damaging or inexcusable

Anyone else have this problem after starting HRT? Like I physically don't want to, not like in a "I want to quit" way but in a "i have 0 sex drive but im still addicted to the dopamine", it's not enjoyable at all anymore unless the desire spontaneously comes into my head, which is like a couple times a week at this point but I still masturbate at least once or twice a day, even looking at wild porn on speed I feel "eh i just want to cum and be done"

I was really worried about having thinning hair before I started but about 5 months after starting HRT it's thicker than it's ever been, and it was really thick as a kid. It's hard to take a good picture but everything that doesn't stay combed down is new growth. Guess I thought I'd share for anyone else who is worried about it. I am still pretty young but I still had noticeable hair loss because it ran in the family, obviously with more loss it would take longer but usually the effect is the same, there are timelines of people almost completely bald having at least passable hair after a couple years. I think spiro contributes to this more, my dose since starting is 200mg and a weekly shot of 10mg estradiol valerate.

Also doesn't show in this pic well but the hair line is starting to come down too and once it actually fills in a bit more it won't have that distinctive male pattern of it going up on the sides

At this point i feel like im obviously going to need it, but it's only been 5 months, how long should I wait to see/do they usually make you wait? Grateful to even be starting to get trans face at this point but i dont want to look like that forever.

Also are there degrees in the price depending on what they change? I feel like I would be fine if they just shaved the chin, i can't imagine just thats in the 20,000-50,000 range ive seen quoted, how would you finance it as well, is there a general amount they want up front?

I mean counting my blessings I dont have an Adam's apple so that's a huge painful expensive one I won't need, shoulders are fine, voice will be too I'm fairly confident, so really I think I'm only looking at face, feet (im only a women's 12 tbf but theyre wide as shit and awful looking), and bottom surgery in that order probably, srs will be almost entirely for me, I don't have enough material to work with for them to make anything really functional

Im looking at all the niche surgeries people talk about getting and im terrified im just missing something when I think i'd be fine without any of them

FFS couldn't hurt for you, but it doesn't seem like you have a bad starting place. Smiling will help fill out your cheeks, you'll figure out your hairstyle and makeup over time and look back and think it looked stupid before.

Recently I paid around $12k for my jaw contouring (ie chin and full jawline). Brow contouring is around the same, but there's some overlap (anesthesia and operating room costs) when you do multiple things at once.

Years ago I paid about $20k for brow and adam's apple in the US (spiegel)

They don't do degrees of change per thing. If you want your jaw changed a tiny bit, that's going to be the same price as completely reshaping your jaw.

They usually want some kind of small deposit to book the appointment and then need the rest a month beforehand. I think for FFS I paid like $500 but for SRS I paid 10-20% ahead of time.

I mean the hair I don't mind and don't think I will I just have to get it evened out because it used to be more of a pixie cut and has probably grown about 3-4 inches since I started the first of feb.

I've not even legitimately tried to wear makeup and get it right though, I'm not wearing any in that picture I think my skin just looks weird because I had just spent 40 minutes shaving and then doused my face in witch hazel and sea breeze, you can kind of see that the splotches around my lip are just from shaving too close if you look closely but I mean don't lol, this is still annoyingly as close as I can shave and I've not found anyway to totally eliminate stubble with makeup so since it's mask season I just don't bother, in terms of consistency though I'm pretty pleased with how my skin is coming along in general, a few months after HRT all of us sudden a switch flipped and I could instantly feel that pressure and started doing a psychotic level of self-care and kind of soured on eating altogether, but even places I don't work on that much skin is noticeably softer

the hair though was what I was worried most about before I started but that's probably been the quickest most dramatic change, probably almost twice as full as it's been and I can tell because half the strands are only like an inch, especially in areas where it was thinning, and the hairline itself is lowering there's like a half inch of that clearly new hair filling in the male pattern, so I really don't even need that dishonest haircut any more it's just where my hair parts naturally and how I like to do it, don't really care for pulling it back no matter where my hairline is, lot of how quickly it's going is probably from starting out on 200mg of spiro because I had hair loss and acne, neither of which I have now, which is brilliant

also there's leave-in conditioner in it i hadn't washed out yet it's not actually this greasy lls

thanks for the info, that answered my question, I was under the impression it was more of a thing they did in one go, 12k is pretty reasonable, i also imagined there would be some kind of financing available but i mean now that i think about it that doesn't really make any sense because they can't reposes your chin if you default on it

beyond the chin really starting to think priorities wise I'll go with feet next because it'll be great to wearing something other than sneakers and vans, I mean you can tell from this the jaw line isn't great but when I'm not looking straight up at a 180 degree angle it doesn't look this sharp or defined at all, well laser on my neck is obviously first before anything but that's next to nothing compared to surgery, I'll knock that out in a few months probably

I thought this board told me that patches were “the good shit,” but my doctor told me that pills and injections better absorbs the estrogen. What the hell? My last lab results had my testosterone higher than my estrogen. This hasn’t been the case since I was off of HRT! Did you all lie to me?! : - 0 : - (

Yup, they do! Please look up Oestrogel and Proget Gel. The good thing is that being transdermal, it bypasses the liver completely. Furthermore, it produces way more stable levels than pills, patches or injections do (look up the pharmokinetics of estrogen article on Wikipedia). That's what I use and I'm fairly happy with it.

Sup seedy,

Do you have any anecdotes/ first-hand/ second-hand experience with butt, hip, or even breast implants? Did you or a friend get them and how are they? How did everything go?

I did some face things and srs, now I am considering butt/ hip/ breast enchantment, but I'm a bit borderline. I have basically no figure (36B = bwh 38-30-36) but look alright dressed. It just doesn't seem natural to me because I didn't have much of a chance to get actual curves and proportions.

I can't wear certain things, I'll never be able to wear a proper swimsuit, not comfortable showing myself naked or in underwear, I won't be properly comfortable with my current proportions. I am 32 (started at 25) so I want to enjoy the rest of my 30s and feel attractive and confident again. These are normal woman insecurities, though being trans exacerbates them.

But what I worry is that implants won't do enough or will be obvious/ bad or hard to deal with. I don't want a perfect model body/ kardashian ass or anything, just something more proportioned to the rest of me.

It's weird that /r/asktransgender used to be really popular when I started, but it has declined in quality so much. There are almost no threads about implants at all even though that's the most popular cosmetic surgery in the world, and the threads that do exist are just questions with no answers. Do trans women just not care about getting implants? Or are we all focused too much on kawaii vuvus and man rolls to think about spending precious neetbux on implants?

hi op. i got breast implants totally paid for by my insurance. feels good.

it was honestly a rollercoaster of emotions. i was pretty sure i wanted them, and about a week after i got them, i was in the depths of depression and was convinced i wanted them removed from my body. i was in pain, my tits felt like they were going to explode, and my body looked different from what i was used to. i felt fine after another week, and now i like them and forget they are there a lot. still regaining sensitivity in one of my nipples, so that kind of sucks, but whatever, they look awesome and make me feel better about myself. this is all kinda common with cosmetic surgery, so since you had some before you're probably aware of how you specifically will react.

anyway, things specific to transwomen and implants that you can't just google.

since you started at 25, your tits are probably far apart. mine were too. they can't really do anything about that; they can put the implants closer together, but then your nips are more lateral. they can do that and surgically move the nip, but you get horrible scarring, it looks super weird, and you will lose all feeling in your nips. so, you just kind of have to accept that your boobs will stay far apart. if you can manage to give yourself some cleavage now with a push up bra, you will be fine. for me, the placing of the implants makes them look super natural, and yeah they're far apart, but not so far that they look weird.

the more breast tissue you already have, the better your outcome in terms of retaining sensation and looking natural. i was like a b and went up to a d, so it wasn't a radical change for me. i have great feeling in one of my nips and they look super natural. so if you are flat now, they will look super fake. also, the liquid implants look way more natural than the gel ones, but the gel ones don't sag as much. and, i'll add, regardless of which type of implant you get, they will look fake for at least the first few months. they don't start settling in completely for about a year tops.

as far as curves, i was blessed with nice hips and an amazing ass, and my fat distributes really well so my thighs look awesome. this was even before hrt. i got implants because, well, i'm 6 feet tall, and with my amazing ass and big height, i looked weird with only a b cup, so i got implants to make my proportions more even. worked very well, i'd say. they look great, and where i rarely got misgendered before, it never happens now.

for me, the biggest negatives are:
  • lack of sensation in my left breast (this is still coming back, i'm 6 months out) and loss of sensation in my right one (it's mostly back). i
  • having what really are strange foreign bodies in my chest. most of the time, i forget i have them, but if someone squeezes my tits it feels like... like i'm wearing a vest with water balloons in the chest area.
  • stretch marks. liberal application of moisturizer should be used if you get implants. i wasn't as diligent as i should have been. fortunately for me, stretch marks on my body always fade to being nearly invisible, so i normally don't worry too much about them. but, when i first got the implants, my tits were so red and covered in stretch marks that they looked awful.
  • wearing a bra. i think most women agree that bras are like prisons for your tits. before i could get away with not wearing a bra and almost no one would know. now i cannot. it's very obvious. having not grown up wearing bras and not being used to them, i don't like wearing a bra, they're very restricting. so now i actually have to choose between comfort and acceptability/looking nice.

other than that, i'm very happy with them. if i ever need to get them replaced, i think i might go down in size a bit, but i'm super, super happy with them. they look amazing.

thanks anon. I know I'm late in responding, but that's all nice to know.

I just scheduled my surgery this past week for november. I did two consults, both recommended the same thing. silicone breast implants, butt implants, and lipo fat transfer to hips. I went with the doctor who has about 10x the experience with butt implants.

I'm still nervous about it being such a big change that people are going to notice and talk about it behind my back. even though I am doing it in cold weather so I can cover up to an extent. and the pandemic may mean we don't go back to work until after that, that would be great because no one would remember exactly what I looked like before.

nothing is going through insurance even though it might be possible. I don't want to go through that process again though I did it with SRS. My insurance now is even more of a nuisance to deal with, so I'm going about it like a regular woman with insecurities.

Recently, an infamous title among hardcore gamers- Dwarf Fortress- recently announced its intentions of adding transgender representation to the "Dwarf"s (main controllable characters of the games).

This created a lot of controversy (such as articles like these https://www.oneangrygamer.net/2019/03/dwarf-fortress-on-steam-will-feature-trans-dwarves-but-you-cant-talk-about-it-on-the-forums/80873/ ) and distasteful pictures such as the OP. Some people said they were going to create disturbing "murder farms" for transsexuals in game.

What do the people here think about this? Do you think Dwarf Fortress should include transgender dwarves, or do you think it would open our community to more abuse from bigots?

How does a general thread about a game like dwarf fortress become one of if not the worst thread on the board?

Why? The answer is objectively incontrovertibly yes. Why shouldn't they? I really hope they go through with it and the Cyberpunk 2077 people stay true to the tabletop which had LGBT characters from the start. From the looks of it they will. It's really funny when chuds talk about it's a deviation from the tabletop when not only is it not, the lead designer of the original game is on the fucking development team lmao

Easily two of the most reactionary game fan bases (shockingly for Cyberpunk, i guess all the CDPR dick riders that love how white the Witcher is thought it would be like their trad gf simulator and not a franchise inextricably linked to left-wing politics and social justice). It's amazing to see them get so mad about something so innocuous, their skin is so paper thin it's unreal, and at this point they're just ostracizing themselves, the majority of well-adjusted people do not give a shit about this.

And as time goes on and more and more of this representation starts to come in and the alt right computer touchers reeeee their last reeeee it'll be like they never existed. Every kid brought up to day is brought up in a way that these things are just a fact of life, it's absurd to have an opinion on it.

hi /cd/, needed an anonymous place to vent. I'm a trans guy and ever since I started T a few months ago my libido has been overwhelming. I've fucked a bunch of new people (plus my long-term boyfriend) since January and it's not enough. I'm staying with friends right now and I have no private place to masturbate (I normally need to cum at least twice a day) and it's driving me crazy. It's hard for me to get my mind off of sex and get anything done. I don't want to do anything that my friends would be uncomfortable with but I can hardly control myself.

That plus I seem to be developing... inconvenient? tastes. I've always been a size king but none of my dildos feel filling enough anymore and I can't afford an even bigger one, nor an even more powerful vibrator. Non-con used to be a turn-off/trigger for me but lately I've been fantasizing more and more about being pinned down and fucked against my will until I'm crying and sore. my politics and my kinks are almost diametrically opposed, politically I want trans men to be viewed more or less the same as cis men and I despise straight chasers, but in bed I just want to be tied up and hurt and stretched and be called a pathetic fucktoy only useful for pleasuring cock.

I have no outlet right now. I'm coming home on Sunday where at least I'll be able to masturbate in peace but that feels like it's an eternity away, and thanks to covid it'll be months before I can arrange the gangbang of my dreams. but I don't want to pause T for any reason and I'm kind of getting off on the denial >_<

hey, transwoman here, but before i transitioned (i.e. when i had a ton of t in me) i masturbated a few times a day normally. honestly when i was in college i would go to a one person bathroom on campus and masturbate during a class. i know guys go to the bathroom to jack off. people don't talk about it a lot, but i guarantee you, guys are jacking it all the goddamn time. it's probably less convenient for you, because cis guys can literally just head to the bathroom and jack it without any extra equipment or anything, and it doesn't sound like that would do it for you. but, i would say, when the urge strikes, make privacy, and get down and dirty.

these days i masturbate like two times a week on average so i don't have the same needs at all, but past me feels your pain.

also, ditto to what the other poster said. like, everybody masturbates to problematic stuff. i'm a very leftist person, but i personally think that pretty much any kind of play is kosher when it comes to sex, so long as everyone is consenting adults. i would not condone racism in any circumstance, except pornography and sex, as an example (not something i'm into but i'm just giving an example). it's total fantasy, so it's ok. i have masturbated to the thought of being enslaved and murdered before. so long as it's all in your head, or all between two or more consenting adults, you're all good, baby.

Hello. Just out of curiosity. What's your depth 2 years after GRS surgery? Don't know if the photo of vaginal dilators is a standard type for everyone, but in my case I'm at the last dot mark on the biggest one (the orange one). I feel like I lost so much depth and I'm kind of worry. My surgeon never answered to this question because it's quite different for everyone (and I know that of course) but my question is: do you feel like you lost a lot of depth in time?
Thank you for your answers and hope you're all ok and you didn't had to deal with this covid horror

I went to Suporn so my dilators don't have dots, just inches/centimeters. I have stayed around 7-8 inches but I know most people who "lose" depth because of where my surgeon tells people to start measuring and the healing process making swelling go down. Most settled somewhere around 6-6 1/2. Every surgeon really is different though.

I've been doing this for months now with the needles they gave me, and I used to be just fine with it, just leave an ice pack on the spot for a few minutes then bam would barely feel it, and this was surprising since historically I cant stand needles

But recently for some reason it's started to hurt a lot and the quessiness I have aboit the feeling of needles going into my muscle has come back and at this point I can barely psych myself up to do it each week

I know it's incredibly viscous, about the consistency of honey, which I think is why he prescribed such a low gauge but is there anyway just like a regular insulin needle would work? Idk which these ones are, theyre about as thick as a paperclip, I have 4 left of these that Im sure I can get myself to use, i figured out some of it was because they were getting blunted going into the vial so I just swap the same tip onto new syringes, extract it, then swap back in the new one

But still, this used to be something I almost enjoyed, now I can barely get myself to do it, I don't want to go to the patch because it seems annoying and potentially less effective but my doctor also said he was loath to prescribe oral because of the potential health complications, so this is basically my only option

I usually use 25G. What you can do is draw with a wider needle and then switch needles and inject with a smaller one.

if its that viscous, insulin needle will take ages to draw and inject. it sounds thicker than what ive been using by your description of 'honey,' and if thats truly accurate, by god, im sorry. maybe you can be prescribed a different formulation that is thinner?

are you doing IM? because if so, this causes more pain for viscous injections, and may be contributing to the anxiety. you could talk to your endo about doing subQ instead.

there's also apparently a technique that may reduce the chance of you having a bad reaction by preemptively increasing your blood pressure (anxiety from needle sticks are lowering it, contributing to the nausea, etc): https://www.anxietycanada.com/articles/applied-tension-technique-for-people-who-faint-at-the-sight-of-blood-or-needles/

Away from home but thats what I ended up doing, doctor recommended I stay at the same gauge because of the formulation but said just use one for drawing and one for injections, which has worked. Maybe honey is a bit much, closer to maybe syrup, my problem know is theres so much force required to actually inject it and I'm such a weakling that my hand shakes and I end up with a little bruise around the injection site sometimes.

All in all i think it's still what i prefer over oral and transdermal, I hadn't heard there were subcutaneous injections too, i might look into it, also I always assumed there had to be something that would last longer than a week at a time, like an actual tiny device that doses it consistently or something

I'm stealth, living in Europe, started when I was 32 ... I'll give you 100% genuine true answers. I do pass, without any doubt. Did my surgery in Montreal, had complications. Did not had any need to do ffs, and still don't need, because genetics. I'm a little bit known for my job (I insist, not related to "my condition") in my country and really not "being proud to be trans" bullshit. Just living my life... I lurk here from time to time and this board helped me when I started back then. Started self medicating with the help of 420chan to be honest, that's why I'm still watching this

Well I mean the problem with that of course is that this whole thing works based on signifiers, none of which individually are intrinsically masculine. Gender presentation emerges as a whole greater than the sum of its parts. If you know someone is trans your brain can be very good at picking out tells like broader shoulders, sharper jaw, taller, deeper voice, etc. but with the exception of certain ones like visible Adam's apple, no one of these features on their own would seem out of place on a cis woman. Passing is a matter of having enough aspects of one's appearance fall with-in acceptable ranges so that people, whether they want to or not, categorize you in their heads as female. If you're posting a picture of yourself and asking "do I pass?" then it's, very, very, very easy for someone to come along and say "No because x" even if you pass the point of almost never being clocked, which as actually not THAT hard to do for most builds if you start early in life. Not to mention the fact that a still image can be poured over and studied intently whereas you see people for a few seconds at a time in the real world. The flip-side to this is that once you come to the understanding that trans people are the gender they identify as, then you start to see them all that way and your brain starts to become much more forgiving in terms of picking out tells. Because of how much my mindset shifted after starting HRT, unless it's someone who is pre-HRT or just started or they have a very unfortunate build I find it almost impossible to tell these days, i see pictures all the time of trans people i wouldn't have said were trans and cis people that I thought were trans

OP here. I'm really sorry that I triggered this with my post. Will be more careful in the future. I realize that I really have to be more careful with those things.
Passing is very subjective and in my case it's calculated ONLY on the base of how many "sir" I get (none since year 2 of my transition) . I'm still " in the middle " (androgynous) but it's more about my energy I guess. I dress 80% with a jean and a t-shirt and I don't do makeup (only when I'm forced because I have to get in front of the camera, due to my job). So to be honest, I don't know what is good enough to pass but I really wish you to be free of any kind of anxiety. And once again sorry, wasn't my purpose

I actually bailed on an orchie with some sketchy no-psych-letters orchi doc in Philly back in 2006/07? before i tried again. i'm blanking on the name. He was super creepy in the office visit, senile, shakey hands; rambled about how girls shop for heels? and how his injections don't hurt because he times it with a spank? didn't actually explain the surgical procedure. it was weird. I was with a friend and just literally noped out. I remember tried to look him up again a year or two later and it seemed like he just kinda disappeared.
