>>5643230 Well im big into rock climbing which uses a lot of upper body muscle. Id like to be strong and also fem because I dont want to limit what I can do or who I can be because of gender dysphoria.
So fuck that other fitness thread. Thinking of getting back into gymnastics. A bit late in life, and my body's going to complain for a while, but I'd love to some of that flexibility and muscle control.
>>5643630 Ummm. Its been a dream of mine to climb the cliffs in yosemite. Ever since then I've been working and planning to do it. Knitting is nice but it doesnt compare to standing on what feels like the top of the world.
>>5643630 It's really weird to encounter this kind of assumption about trans women. Yeah, the NHS and some really backward therapists want us to become caricatures of femininity before they'll respect our identities, but by and large we're transitioning to become more true to ourselves, not less.
>>5643705 Typically, marginalized groups can do no right and popular groups can do no wrong. If you're MtF and you knit, you're putting women down. If you climb rocks, you're not really a woman. Compare this to how a black person who commits crimes is a nigger, and one who obeys the law is some wimpy Uncle Tom.
Now contrast that to how to the only way a white straight man can mess up is if he's gay, black, or a woman. Literally all three of which are literally impossible.
It's similar to how I never feel guilty about anything and I'm always proud of myself for everything, even if I mess up. You too can have great self-esteem and be happy! All you have to do is move the goalpost for your own failings to something that is literally impossible. For me, so long as I'm not straight, I feel like I've won.
>>5648953 also you don't have to cycle shit at all. You are male regardless of how much estrogen you pump into your body. You will put on muscle faster than women and the way it sits on your skeleton will be more masculine looking. So if anything you should be worried about getting to big not having low T lol what a joke
>>5648977 >You will put on muscle faster than women False. Muscular hypertrophy is one of testosterone's effects - it's what allows men to put on and maintain muscle more easily than women. Trans women usually maintain testosterone levels that are low for a cis woman in order to benefit more from comparatively lower doses of estrogen, as well as prevent further masculinization. In modern treatment it is widely preferred to the older practice of prescribing extremely high doses of estrogenic drugs to outcompete testosterone.
>and the way it sits on your skeleton will be more masculine looking. This depends on how masculine the skeleton in question is, but can be true. A caveat is that muscle will build more easily in places that women normally have an easier time building it (for reasons mentioned in the earlier part of the response), and that this usually serves to make a generally fit trans woman look more like a fit woman than a fit man.
