Does gay people benefit from feminism?
Guess the gender ?
>tfw never pass edition
Can we ever find happiness in this cruel life?
Did you get fucked up sufficiently by puberty by the time you started, regardless of the exact age? If so, you're late.
Doesn't mean you can never pass, but this thread is about the struggles of post-puberty transition.
im interested in this thread's opinions on the parades.
>how do you feel about the event
>does it really make you proud of your orientation
>your feelings about controversies related to the parades
I'm a MtF that started HRT when I was 21 and have been on HRT for just over 8 months. It's been obvious to me for awhile that I will most likely never pass to my standards without corrective surgeries. I know theoretically it's possible for me to afford them in about a year if I wanted them (which I guess is what you could say I'm currently blindly working towards.)
My biggest problem with FFS at the moment is that it's become more and more apparent to me over the past few months that FFS isn't the magical save all for people that don't pass like its sometimes made out to be. The reality of the situation is that some MtFs will never pass even if they were to pay tens of thousands of dollars on corrective surgeries.
Sometimes I even feel like I would rather live with the face I have now rather than risk having a botched FFS operation that leaves me looking worse than before / still unable to pass / - thousands of dollars that could be spent on college tuition or something.
Right now I'm enjoying the effects of HRT /twinkhon status which in all honesty isn't that bad and has many perks in comparison to being a non passing MtF / not taking HRT. Objectively I know lots of men / women find me sexually attractive which means it's not hard to find partners if I want one even though I have never had very much interest in sex. There is also all kinds of implicit / explicit privilege that I'm aware of having that comes with being "attractive" / fitting into heteronormative culture, all of which would be lost if I were to try present as a non-passing MtF.
Taking HRT also means that I no longer have daily panic attacks about aging like a man / in general HRT has also lessened some of my dysphoria, however I know that twinkhon status can only last for so long. Eventually my boobs will get too big / affects of HRT will push me to the point that my "transness" becomes obvious to everyone I interact with in public, something which I have always desperately wanted to hide.
Basically this seems to leave me with four options:
1. Stop taking HRT and repress / accept life as a male and find value in life through other means besides transition. (This seems very unlikely to work in my case.)
2. Accept life as a non passing MtF and learn to cope with not being able to "blend" with the rest of society / stick out everywhere I go. (This also doesn't sound like it would work in my case, I don't really see any value in transitioning from M to non-passing trans female, though it does sound better than option 1 / 4.)
3. Risk getting FFS and potentially still not passing after it / having a botched operation / confront one of my biggest fears (FFS) and potentially pass well enough to my standards after, or be in the same spot as before physically (not passing to my standards) and 10-15k poorer. (This seems like the riskiest option of the 3 but the one with the highest reward as well.)
4. Kill myself. (I'm not actually going to do this for many reasons, I felt it was necessary to include this option so you idiots will hopefully not spam this thread with suggestions to kill myself.)
MtFs that have been through what I'm going through / are in my shoes / have suggestions, how do you think I should proceed in life, Are there other ways forward I'm not thinking of?
I am in very similar circumstances. i use an 'alpha' male personality, as a matter of fact, to come out to everyone as trans. you're just still feeling a little insecure, you probably want to go with 3 because hey, your life is worthless anyway.
Does height really matter for transitioning? Would someone really tall still be okay if their body build was decent? What's considered decent for shoulder length and could it be proportionate to height?
Height is just a meme, for the most part. Bone structure is what matters. One can be a short natal male with masculine facial and skeletal structures, or a tall natal male with feminine facial and skeletal structures.
Only once you hit like 6'3 and over is it difficult to maintain feminine proportions, since you're almost destined to have giant hands and feet at that height anyways.
Sorry for not being in the last thread. I'll try harder this time!
Get the "pre-everything will i have a chance?" people off of /passgen/ pls
Stop making "Could i pass?" threads pls, keep it all here!
>post a picture of yourself
>rate 5 other people on your post pls
>people say whether you have potential to pass as a girl/guy
>rate 5 other people on your post pls
>ignore people who don't rate other people or act like butts
>rate 5 other people on your post pls
i hate tying my hair back because it makes me realize i'm still the same boy
..also my mom said i'm looking taller XD XD
I have an issue, anons.
I'm a homosexual male, I don't have any kind of attraction towards females, but I only feel attracted to extremely handsome men. I mean, above 7/10, and I'm not even a 5/10.
Is that normal? If not, which kind of problem do I have?
I mean, I'd prefer date a woman than an ugly guy. I feel extremely bad about it and think of myself as a narcisist piece of shit who sees people only as my personal objects of pleasure, but It's not like it's totally voluntary.
This is one of the reasons I never had a boyfriend and even any friends.
Is this a human think, a gay think or what?
>I'm a homosexual male

>tfw im a butch lesbian tomboy trapped inside a straight male's body
How can I handle this feelings? WAT DO?
i dont want to go to my imam, or my parents, or anyone on any site that im not anonymous.
i am a gay muslim, i'm very straight acting and masculine. i even live in a free secular society (England).
I need help to deal with these thoughts, is there anything i can do to repress them? Bar removing my genitals.
i just want to be normal. i have heard about chemical castration but i dont know if i want that, but at this point im considering it.
is there any way? Please? i dont have anyone else to ask for help.
>i even live in a free secular society (England).
England, the country where you get arrested for burning a holy book or wearing an offensive slogan on a t-shirt, "free and secular"?
Did any of you guys go through a time when you were really religious? I spent all of jr high and high school as a very active Catholic. I would spend hours at church every week and I was anti gay to the extreme. I hated gay marriage and myself for that matter. I'm currently still Catholic but not as devout as I used to be. I only go to mass on Sunday's and that's it. I no longer form part of any church grou0.
I was extremely religious by choice until I was about 11-12 which was when started to realize that the church I attended held beliefs that deeply conflicted with my own internal sense of morality, so I stopped going / caring about organized religion and eventually became agnostic.
It probably would of been a lot of more difficult to detach my self from religion if my parents were also extremely religious but l became interested in church through my neighbors.
There are a lot of unhappy patients from Ousterhout, now retired. There must be something true. I refuse to believe that all these people are crazy or suffer from BDD. The real problem is that they go out of their way to afford this costly surgey they are fed bullshit and then they see they don't pass and have manly faces. http://m.mysanantonio.com/news/article/Jailed-transgender-woman-in-S-F-facing-life-term-6234731.php
The real problem with FFs is that it doesn't address the core issues of a man's face. So many people are frustrated because they naïvely thought that spending 50 k (on a surgery advertised to be so aggressive) would really give them a feminine face. It doesn't work like that. Ffs only scrapes the bottom
Of the barrel. I wish doctors would be honest and told their patients upfront that FFS won't necessarily make them pass
Strange dreams thread?

>Have an unshakable fear wash over me and my ass hurts like I was just fucked
>Giant devil man comes in my room and pulls my towards him (laying on stomach) and starts feeling my ass
>Ask how I'm feeling or something, small talk

>Afraid I sold my soul to the devil and am in some sort of pseudo prostitution hell, to spend the rest of my existence in a cage being fucked by the devil.
>Wake up in my bed and shit my pants (literally)
>Wake up again, it was a dream inside a dream. Still feel like I was raped.
I was fantasising about being married with a husband throughout the week, but this really shook me up. I kinda get scared being around big guys in r/l, but I've never been scared like that.
Pic related, kinda how the man made me feel when I looked at him.
how to cure AGP?
