To the person who mentioned telling their parents about their boyfriend, when I told my parents about my boyfriend being FTM, I done so in a way where I explained Gender Identity Disorder, Dysphoria and the problems and feelings my boyfriend described to me when we talked about how he was feeling and what he planned to do. My parents don't fully understand but they accept it as long as we're happy. In truth s/he should not worry, their reaction doesn't matter, only those in the relationship.
slighty confused as the person i like is ftm and i'm a female who identifies as bisexual. after transition, would he still be considered trans or bisexual, which is what he identifies himself as before?
His sexual orientation will not change because of his transition. He will still be transgender after his transition. I hope I answered your question. (:
I'd like to explain to my parents that my boyfriend is trans*. They don't know. They also don't know I have dated women before. I know there are going to be a lot of questions and I am ready for them. My biggest concern is how to explain to my parents that he is the guy they have always thought he was and not the man he is with an anatomy of someone they have never seen me with. How do I properly, from the first step, educate them about the difference?
I was straight with my dad I said “__ is not a girl, he has the anatomy of a female, but in his head he is a man.” then I proceeded to ask if he’d call him by Lucas and use male pronouns. After that my dad just asked questions and I’d answer them. Others should submit stories and experiences, or a straight answer. I couldn’t tell you a perfect way to do this.
My boyfriend has excitingly scheduled a date for his top surgery. I love how having a set date has lessened his dysphoria. I find him extremely physically attractive already (identify as straight female so he's comfortable w/ my appreciation), but I want this surgery for him b/c I understand its extreme importance to his identity. However, I do selfishly worry about our sex life as his nipples play a large role in his finishing. Please suggest anything you can to make me a better partner for him
After he gets his top surgery and loses the sensation he will probably figure out another way to enhance his sexual experience and I am sure if you ask him to tell you and show you what he’s comfortable with he will tell you.
how does one go about telling an ftm she likes him?
It’s no different than telling a cis-gendered person just tell them you like them (: be confident
Luc.. so, when did you know that you were trans? How old were you? How was your family? What is the most difficult part about being trans? What's your favorite part about being trans? Did you ever think you were a lesbian? Did you ever come out as a lesbian? Hahaha sorry for the super loaded question, but ya lol. Thanks so much. :) <3
When I was younger I always did stereotypical boy stuff, I always felt kind of different, so I guess I always kind of knew. I acknowledged being transgender at 15 and came out at 16. My mom was cool with it, I guess and none of my extended family or my dad know because I’m not really close to them. My least favorite part of being trans is probably the psychological conflicts like dysphoria, things like that. My favorite part… It taught me that people can still love you for what you are, even if you’re different. Hahaa, yes I was out as a lesbian at one point and yeah, I though I was one. Sorry that was so long. Yeaaah.
Hey there! My name is Roxie, and I’m a cis-female currently in a relationship with a sexy, funny, sweet, intelligent, well-dressed, eloquent, amazing guy who happens to be trans-masculine.
I’ve also recently started a blog about dating trans*masculine/genderqueer individuals, for their partners – I love and appreciate your blog so much, and basically I wanted to add my own two cents so that one day the Internet can be full of trans*partner support and love – much like the support and love you’ve given me. I don’t know (or pretend to know) everything, and if you think I have missed something vital or would like to discuss something you think I missed the mark on entirely, please let me know through my ask box. I can only ever really speak to my experience, and I will strive to not generalize. The goal of my blog is to make things a little clearer for other partners or prospective partners.
I (and hopefully some guest posters/moderators I’m currently courting) will regularly post materials on subjects such as dysphoria, sex, sexual identity, the queer community, what transitioning can mean for some folks, and also answer any questions asked – unless I (or we) find them offensive or intruding, in which case I will nonetheless reply privately to explain why I (or we) will not answer the question.
Anyways! I would really appreciate a promo on your crazy awesome quality blog.
Please come check us out sometime!
BLITZ - an all inclusive trans* and gender non conforming resource
“YOU ARE AN ARTIST OF YOUR OWN CREATION”
Creating a safe space for the exchange of ideas and resources for all people under the trans-umbrella and those exploring gender identity.
Through the development of on-line resources and social programming, trans-people and those exploring gender identity will come together to discuss and learn of similarities and the differences; bonds will form; barriers where more work is needed will be realized and through understanding ourselves we will unite and respect one another.
I saw you used the 'f2t' tag on some of your ftm posts. You know that's an acronym that radfems use that means 'female to tranny'? Not trying to be bothersome, just letting you know.
I probably accidently put t because I had no idea what that meant and never seen it before lol. i am really sorry though.
