Text Reads:As a trans person I feel a lot of pressure to never fuck up, as no matter what I’ll always represent the whole trans community to whoever I meet. That goes for all trans people, and it sucks. Submitted by Anon

Text Reads:I overheard my girlfriend’s father on the phone. He called me an “it” and a “she” like I can’t be a boy because I wasn’t born with a penis. My body may have physically female parts, but the way I love your daughter transcends any gender definition. Just let her be happy with me. Submitted by Anon

Text Reads:It’s my gender assignment I reject and have always rejected. I reject not so much being labeled male, I reject being labeled boy. I was never boy. I was girl. Now I am woman. If it were up to me, my passport/residency card/driver’s license wouldn’t have an F on it either, it would have a W for woman. I don’t really think of myself as female, just as I don’t think of myself as cisgender or as FAAB. ~ Kat Callahan

Text Reads:I now advocate the use of trans and woman being separated by a space. I am, after all, a woman first, and a trans person second. If it were up to me, and it were not so damn cumbersome, I might instead refer to myself as a woman who is transgender, but… That doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. I would expect the same of trans men (space!), and expect that there are men who would prefer to think of themselves men who happen to be transgender. Their gender coming first and foremost. ~ Kat Callahan

Text Reads:The most common thing I hear about my transition is ‘God doesn’t make mistakes. If he’d wanted you to be a male, you’d have been born that way.’ You’re right - God doesn’t make mistakes. God has a plan for everything and everyone. This is a a journey that has made me stronger and wiser, and you can’t convince me for one second that this wasn’t God’s plan for me. No one starts off in life where they want to go. God challenges you and life takes unexpected turns. I’m exactly where God wants me to be. Submitted by Elliot Posey

Text Reads:I’m very sick of hearing things like “but that’s a BOYS name.” or “those are BOY clothes!” It literally makes me sick to know that everything is so black and white in our society and there is this ginormous amount of people who aren’t like that and are shunned for it. We are people too. Submitted by Connor

Text Reads:I came out of the closet about being transgender to my friend and she said ‘you’re not transgender.’ I asked why and she said because I didn’t get a sex change. Or was on hormones. They said if I was on hormones maybe they might consider calling me by my preferred name and he. I am transgender not transsexual. Some people are not accepting of our decisions but that doesn’t mean you have to listen to them. Be yourself despite what people might say. Submitted by Anon

I looked into the possibility of a sex change, but realised that it wouldn’t work for me, because I didn’t feel particularly male either. ~ CJ Gross

Anonymous asked: hey just a heads up terms like mtf and ftm are really problematic and practically misgendering the trans women/men by saying they were <insert gender> before, so it would be a good idea not to call the submitters that in the tags if they're not explicitly ok with it. consider just tagging it as transmasculine/transfeminine or trans man/woman or nonbinary instead as the case may be. also he/she pronouns don't explicitly mean they are binary genders. thanks


Answer:

(Edited)
If anyone has a problem with me tagging their submitted post with “FtM” or “MtF” would you please let me know? I find that a lot of people who are submitting do so because it’s a space they feel safe say what point they have transitioned from. 

As a pointer for Anon, I go to every single blog that asks me to link to them. I look at every single first page (or more) and I read every single about me. Most blogs I have done this to have the markers FtM, MtF, Non-binary or genderfluid/genderqueer on them. 

As a transsexual myself, I don’t find those terms problematic. To me it’s a simple marker is all. I’d find it more problematic if someone tagged my posts as non-binary, when I am not. On the tagging front, I find that tagging “FtM” or “MtF” on posts helps people to find there way here.

With gendered pronouns, if they are in a quote or submission quote, it is because someone has written them with the intention of them being gendered as such. I have no control over this

Are my followers here happy in the majority with my tagging submitted items specifically related to being either “FtM” or “MtF” as such, or would you prefer me to tag ‘transman’ and ‘transwoman’ instead?

Do message me at let me know. I can reply privately (this goes for anon who sent me this too).
