And I don't just mean pronouns. Like just general ways people interact with you differently. I've noticed some changes but I'm not sure if it's necessarily a matter of me transitioning or just something coincidental...
for instance, ever since I've transitioned and actually started passing in girlmode, I've noticed guys feel a lot more comfortable venting their life stories to me. It's happened multiple times; we'll just be hanging out talking and then they'll go into massive rants about their personal lives and their relationships with their group of friends.
also I think I get cut off more than I used to in conversations. It feels a bit harder to get a word in.
>I think I get cut off more than I used to in conversations
Men can smell if you're emitting excess estrogen and it acts as a signal to let us know you want to be dominated, I read this in a snapple fact.
>tfw the other day one of my guy friends literally grabbed my arm, sniffed it, and told me i smelled good
>tfw i wasn't even wearing any fragrance
I noticed people are stepping into my private space more often now and that everyone doesn't see me, like I am invisible unless I literally take space and extend shoulders out like a bodyguard but I don't think these occurrences are HRT-related.
I don't pass so I don't understand why it is happening to me. Maybe I should cut my hair short.
>tfw bisexual male
>tfw can't enjoy from the social benefits of being the one taking the d
>tfw have to give them to women anyway to get laid
sometimes i wish i were a trans desu, but i just don't feel it at all, i love being male.
"really weird"? ok. I don't have tits anymore, my dick is a strap on, I don't sleep with straight guys, and I only top. But there are lots of FTMs who are bisexual or bottoms or whatever. I'm sure you could find one who would be willing to have sex with you.
>strangers buy me things
>strangers cat call me
>government employees smile and say nice things to me
>guys offer me their seat on the bus, train, or anywhere crowded
>guys open doors for me
>I don't have to wait in lines to get into clubs
>street hustlers think I will humor their shit long enough to make a buck
>I get excellent service in any male dominated store (gun stores, electronics, etc.)
>my family treats me like a social pharia
I'm not full-time, and still present as male at work, but everyone suddenly wants to talk to me all the time. I used to be able to pass hours in silence, and that's off the table now.
Maybe I look...happy?
I noticed old men asking me to smile and people just being more open to talking to me. I also have had a few instances of creepy drunks being creepy, but not much else.
Guys don't really hit on me. No one actually seems to hit on me.
Yeah, based on anthropology studies guys generally interrupt/lead conversations more and pick topics of discussion while females tend to have a more passive role in discussion.
Ironically, I've always been cut off in conversations and treated like that, and had life stories spilled to me.
In my experience as a non-trans female, I think it has a lot to do with how women carry themselves. I think MTF trans feel like they have to try real hard to be feminine to pass, and a lot of the traditionally feminine mannerisms are passive. I'm a bit masculine personality wise, so despite the boobs and all that I have no problem dominating conversations when I want to, even with angry old men at bars arguing politics. You just have to interrupt them right back and use rude language.
I do think it's shitty that trans people have so much pressure to pass put on them, not just with looks but behavior.
