Question for MtFs:
Do you feel envious of women's periods or glad to avoid that part?
As a cis woman I feel lucky to have the body I want, and I like menstruating.
As an MtF, I know it would be unpleasant. I won't deny that it wouldn't necessarily be ideal.
At the same time, if I had a choice I would have been born Cis Female, and thus I would menstruate.
I like the idea of being a mom, so the necessities would be worth it I guess.
I already get bloating, cramps and light-headedness. In exchange for being "legitimate" and having the option to reproduce, I'd be more than willing to take on the relatively small additional burden of shoving a silicon cup up in there for a bit.
If I had the choice to have periods, I wouldn't take it unless it came with something else, such as fertility, or ... being reborn as non-trans.
It's unpleasant on its own, and not having to deal with it on its own is probably the only tangible benefit of being trans...
Menstruating would in fact feel comforting because it's irrefutable proof that I'm a biological female, not only in brain but body too. The physical pain of it can't be any worse than the mental suffering I experience as a biological male.
If I was cis female I'd probably hate it so I don't see why I'd want it. No intentions of ever wanting kids either so it'd just be a negative function.
I like the colour of blood. The way it's milling around my body all the time invisibly giving me life and then once a month I get to see some of it, it makes me feel more in touch with my body, gender, living-ness...
I use it to fertilise my plants, as it's so nutritious. When I was little I used to use it as lipstick (but it's kinda sticky desu)
I like having sex on my period, getting my blood everywhere. Like how cis men like getting their jizz on girls' bodies and stuff.
The pain is a nice excuse for an afternoon in bed with a book, beyond that it's not so bad for me at least.
I'm gay too and I like going down on menstruating girls, it tastes so wild or something lol
Holy shit, OP. Lmao. I've often wondered what the female version of an /r9k/ post would read like and thanks to you, I think I just found out.
I wouldn't say I'm envious of the periods, but their ability to bear children. That's something I will never experience, even if I want to. Periods themselves seem like a hassle and I'd probably take BC, etc. to avoid having one until I wanted to be pregnant.
I feel envious of the ability to birth children.
From what I hear about cramps, though, I'm glad I don't have that. I realize some of my friends have a decent time, but there are also a bunch that have severe pain that means they can't do anything for 1-2 days.
>It's unpleasant on its own, and not having to deal with it on its own is probably the only tangible benefit of being trans...
basically what she said.
>I like the colour of blood. The way it's milling around my body all the time invisibly giving me life and then once a month I get to see some of it, it makes me feel more in touch with my body, gender, living-ness...
I feel like you're trolling.
Envious definitely. It's just one of those things that nearly all women experience that I'll never know.
Plus all girls have different periods, a lot seem to have no cramps or pain. Ironically when talking to ftms I've noticed a lot of them seem to get really bad periods.
I get that autism is a meme word for anything a bit weird or lame, but really it does mean a lack of social understanding/ empathy, and I clearly have a surplus of it to superimpose meaning into my bodily functions suchly.
Honestly not trolling, just have a fetish for menstrual blood. Why's it so normal to have like a jizz or piss fetish but blood is off the table?
>just have a fetish for menstrual blood
I like it too. Would't say a fetish, but I appreciate it non-sexually and certainly don't mind eating mentrual blood. Then again I am a crazy pagan.
>I use it to fertilise my plants, as it's so nutritious.
>When I was little I used to use it as lipstick (but it's kinda sticky desu)
What the fuck
>I like having sex on my period, getting my blood everywhere.
I'm cis lesbian too and like having my period, but... what the fuck
I like the smell too though and the fact that you are somehow evacuating something, I feel like my body is washing itself
I don't really get cramps though, rarely, sometimes a headache before it begins
im not much of a cum person m'self (and i don't believe anybody truly likes cum) but don't kid yourself
its not so much that everyone finds blood completely unappealing, but that you're like a dog rummaging through trash for tampons or rotting flesh. its hardly a sustainable or quality source.
damn you're singing of a disgusting fish smelling clot that's been choked in a poussey
that and why would old blood be symbolic of life??? find some real blod you poser
My drive to transition is very maternal, I could never see myself as a dad, but thinking about my child calling me mommy and crying on my shoulder gives me a really warm feeling.
If you knew older, passing trannies who started when they were young, you'd know I was right.
>Just as trans girls don't get menopause because they keep taking HRT forever a cis woman can stop menopause by taking HRT
No shit sherlock. My mom takes HRT since she's post menopausal. Many women do. They still don't age as well. Don't forget, there are other factors in play than just menopause. Childbirth certainly doesn't help a woman age better. Another example of better aging: tranny tits are younger than cis woman tits given the same age for both people.
>Women after menopause have to take hormones to avoid bad aging
While transwomen have to take them all their life
So? Either way, trannies have very stable levels in comparison. Not to mention, cis women on HRT typically don't get as good of care.
Also, butthurt cis girls detected. You all always get so buttmad whenever menopause is brought up in this context. Just shows how much you despise its inevitable approach.
>an entire thread full of transwomen expressing relief at the fact that they are nothing like cis women
Fookin nasty m8. God damn I am so glad I am only into guys now.
>Either way, trannies have very stable levels in comparison
Tranny's oestrogen are 100% medical ones
I don't see how women's would be less good...
>Also, butthurt cis girls detected. You all always get so buttmad whenever menopause is brought up in this context. Just shows how much you despise its inevitable approach.
I was just refuting what they just said, no need to insult anyone
And obviously you're the butthurt one
>Tranny's oestrogen are 100% medical ones
>I don't see how women's would be less good...
Well, there are many different kinds of estrogens. Many many different medications. My mom is on premarin, which is known to be a shit-tier way of getting estrogen. Trannies used to use it, too, but things have changed and there are better methods now.
>And obviously you're the butthurt one
I'm butthurt because I called you butthurt? Okay.
>Well, there are many different kinds of estrogens. Many many different medications. My mom is on premarin, which is known to be a shit-tier way of getting estrogen. Trannies used to use it, too, but things have changed and there are better methods now.
Ok then if they took both the same they'd be the same results, I don't understand why cis women would have it worse?
You do realise the only reason trannies get to have bioidentical estrogen is because of cis women in menopause? That stuff was original developed for menopause and is still mainly used in menopause, it was never developed for trannies to grow tits. If your mum is still taking premarin she must go to one shitty doctor/gyno.
>Ok then if they took both the same they'd be the same results, I don't understand why cis women would have it worse?
Because medical science has moved forward and premarin is not as good as more bioidentical estrogents.
>get your mom off that horse piss
I tried, but she's pretty set in her ways and is all "you're not my doctor blahblahblah"
>You do realise the only reason trannies get to have bioidentical estrogen is because of cis women in menopause?
No shit. That doesn't mean that all doctors around the world magically become up-to-date with their methods. Premarin usage is still very common for post menopausal women, which is unfortunate.
>If your mum is still taking premarin she must go to one shitty doctor/gyno.
Agreed. It's an old guy, probably just set in his ways.
>You all always get so buttmad whenever menopause is brought up in this context. Just shows how much you despise its inevitable approach.
Of course we despise it you heartless motherfucker
No I didn't, you just need to develop a tougher skin. Girls go too far all the time insulting trannies, but I don't let it phase me. Instead I bring up menopause and they go apeshit. They can dish it out, but they can't take it at all.
>ignoring thread just to shitpost
What exactly, if I may ask, did you expect? It's transrelated thread, this is just how it goes.
I'm not saying you are at all. I'm just saying, cis girls tend not to have a thick skin in regards to insults online. Trannies on the other hand develop a thick skin typically, or simply never discuss it.
>cis girls tend not to have a thick skin in regards to insults online.
I don't know really,
But sure I do
>Trannies on the other hand develop a thick skin typically
I bet they do, they get insulted anywhere all the time
>Läl, trans girls are some of the most easily offended there is. Talking to them is like walking on egg shells.
Yeah, you're right. I was thinking more along the lines of imageboard trannies who discuss the topic on non-tranny/legbutt boards.
to be honest sometimes i wonder what is like to have one and wish i could feel it
Pros: I would l know what its like
I could have an excuse to be pissed off
plus im sure if i transitioned that would be one small thing looming over me, so in a small way... yes
That's not a better one, most people want to reproduce.
It's more interesting to know if people want the 'negative' side of being a woman or can see the beauty in that side. The resounding no makes me feel like these transwomen don't really want to be women at all
>The resounding no
>Yes, wants to have periods
>Only with fertility (kinda goes without saying. Is basically another "yes, wants to have periods")
What a resounding "No".
Whether the what drives them to want a period is to have kids or to feel more like a real woman they still want to have a period.
Having a period is part of fertility and fertility comes with a period. They're not mutually exclusive.
And the last one is saying they understand that while they're shitty it's still another "I'm female" signifier, seems like a yes to me as you can recognize that periods are uncomfortable for many women but still envy it as that poster was saying.
>All just want it for the fertility
And I'm sure all cis women love their periods solely because they adore feeling bloated and shitty while flushing their uterine lining for a week every month. Obviously fertility has nothing to do with it.
I've thought that shit should be banned. Same with the EE ones too. Both cause increases in cancer rates above normal. Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone only raise cancer rates to that of a natal female with that E2 and P levels in her system.
OP here. My question was about periods not about fertility, bc I know almost everyone wants that, hence over 7 billion of us
Looking at people who don't want periods or just for fertility that's a count of 12, people who want it to feel like a woman is 7. Counting achieved.
I am a cis woman and I don't want any children, and I still like getting my period.
I'm simply surprised that most trans people seem to not want that, I would've guessed otherwise.
I'm not saying it doesn't count. Just saying I had expected most-all transwomen to want other aspects of it as well, not JUST the procreative side.
Count again, friend
fml I wish I could find a partner with the same fetish (tho not a man obvs) I'm stuck apprecaiting my bodily tides alone :')
I am saying no and I don't care what some internet loser thinks of me, trust me. I don't care I am not tru trans enough, I am still on hormones that could be in hands of legitimate trans people instead but they are not.
Angry because fetishists have access to hormones while you don't, hon? :^)
>umadbro? *le masterrusemen face*
Nobody cares if you find the idea of you as a female attractive, you'll just end up killing yourself anyway, I'm not sure why you even felt the need to respond. You're either legitimately offended and do care what "some loser on the internet" thinks of you, or you're just trying to start drama or something. You're not even using your buzzwords right, shake my head to be honest pham.
