How do you deal with being made fun of as a trans?
I am mtf but havent started transitioning other than wearing gender neutral clothing. I get looks around town of people trying to "figure" me out because i have a baby face. I hate being mocked by people who are much happier with their life and probably never attempted suicide. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to snap and attack them if I felt I had a chance. Safety aside it's hard to let things like that go. How do you do it?
They are making fun to impress a girl or seem more manly, they are fucking bigots. They treat our lives as trivial for the sake of their small gain. It makes me sick.
Are you fucking kidding me? Getting looks and confusing the shit out of people when you're presenting androgynous is insanely fun and gives you a self esteem boost. The problem starts when it happens when you're trying to actually look like a girl, and that's when you start feeling shitty about it.
I'm currently in the andro stage (entered it without noticing because my hair grew and my face is girly by default) and the extra attention is fucking amazing.
Thanks for replies.
I think it will get easier when I may pass. I live in US. I think last night I was overreacting as I woke up to this thread and now I feel a bit better about it.
Where I feel poorly is in never fitting in with either male or female. Too girly for the boys and too mannish for the women. I guess this just flared up because some people at the store were mocking me the other day. They did this all non directly. I walked in and one of the group started talking to me, I at first thought he was friendly. I later realized he was mocking me when he put his arms around me to give me a "hug". It felt like he was trying to show off"look, I touched the butt". This maybe was more bothersome to me because many of my old "friends" turned out to be jerks treating me like I was the groups pet. They would through me a bone now and then and say i was "cool" but would always talk behind my back and make wisecracks. It was like a competition, who could make the most fun of me right in front of my face without me knowing.
A couple days before in the grocery store this girl looked at me and started to laugh hysterically as she continued to look. Perhaps this would be more fun if I in general felt more attractive. I am very overweight so regardless of gender so I feel unnatractive to most.
I guess it's all not that bad tho, I'm going to hang in their until I pass. I think I was just having a rough day yesterday.
Good luck to you, thanks for your reply. I am excited for you entering your transition. I hope I can start to take these looks as a compliment when I start to feel better about myself and lose weight.
I'm going to try to keep a positive mindset from now on and not let this stuff bother me like it has before.
you can pass if you aim for the type of woman that would result of having a body like yours.
big women have a decade or more to learn to cope with how to make the best of how they look, most people deal with being ugly. if you try to look like someone you aren't it will never work no matter if you're trans or cis.
