I’m very honored to hear that :)
Hello! I was binding for about a year before I started testosterone. So in total I’ve been binding for about 2 years. My chest has definitely been malformed by binding, for a while I had some trouble breathing, especially when I wore a binder while running. I’ve also gotten welts, bruises, acne and chafing. Make sure that your boyfriend buys a few binders so that he can wear a clean one, and also make sure he doesn’t buy a binder that is too small. A binder that’s too small can hurt your chest cavity and your back/posture. Even binders that fit pose this risk, so bind with care.
I’m an equal opportunist, I like pairings based on the chemistry between the characters, not based on their genders :)
No XD I’m a terrible terrible terrible terrible cook. I screw up Mac and Cheese, if you can believe it D:
And thank you ;)
I FOLLOW YOU ON DA and when the clock strikes 12 every night I photoshop myself into a picture with you and draw hearts ALL AROUND IT then I ceremoniously light it on fire and flush it down the toilet and cry to commemorate the way that you BURNT MY FEELINGS AND PISSED ON MY DREAMS.
Long story short, 7 DAYS See you soon =D

“Hormone testing” is a pretty useless method of trying to help with gender identity. On my first blood test my estrogen and testosterone levels were completely within normal female range. I was told by my doctor that very few FTMs actually have an unusual balance of hormones in their system prior to transition. Hopefully the therapy you are going to attend will be helpful :) I wish you the best!
You could try telling her again, but clarify that your not joking. or you could tell her something a little less straightforward and state that you don’t think that gender factors into sexual attraction. My mom seemed to appreciate that angle the most when I tried to explain my view on sexuality to her.
Memoir… maybe when I’m 75 XD
In simplest terms, it was the feeling of ” I want to spend time with this person”. Before, even with my closest friends, I wanted to spend time apart from them often and I felt awkward being with them for extended periods of time. With Nova, it was a level of comfort I’ve never felt before. I feel complete when I’m with her and incomplete when I’m not. I know that I can be 100% myself around her, it all comes naturally :)
I sure as hell do. Sometimes I get sad about it. I think I would have been able to really experience my teenage life if I had transitioned earlier. I was pretty introverted as a teen. I was relatively popular, but I hated hanging out with people because I had to put on a facade and it was exhausting. But everything happens for a reason. And I suppose that if I had transitioned earlier I might not have met my fiancee or the friends I have now.
I think my longest essay to date is 20 pages. The general length of essays at my University is about 5-10 pages.
I am not transgender by identity. I identify as male, being transgender is just what’s getting me from A to B. My identity has always been male. Before I knew I was trans I was a boy who was stuck in a girl’s body and I had resigned to the fact that I could never be the way I felt. I sort of said “well, I can wish as much as I want, but I’ll never be male, so I’d mind as well make the bet of things”. It was a very sad time in my life, thought I didn’t let it show because I felt I couldn’t tell anyone. Transition gave me a way to actualize the identity that I never thought could be real. I don’t know how to explain the specific feeling of gender. I’m not sure anyone can put that into words.
For a while my favorite song is Five Becomes Four (Yellowcard) and my favorite movie… hmmm… I’m not sure i have one. Generally I can only see a movie once, I don’t often re-watch things unless I’ve forgotten most of the plot. My favorite anime series is Sailor Moon.
My favorite thing to do after a day or work/school is lounge at home wit my laptop, a movie or episode of a series, and my girl :)
My favorite book is probably still Oryx and Crake (Atwood) but the Percy Jackson series is pretty damn awesome. I like Harry Potter as well.
My major hobby is exercise. I try to go to the gym/run/workout at least 5 times a week. I love it. I also like playing sports but that requires organization which i don’t really have the time for.
2 years ago I never would have thought I could handle it. But it’s a matter of necessity right now. I need to work and I need to finish my degree. Cosplaying is very much on the back-burner for me. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, but that’s when I put things in perspective for myself. Many people have far harder workloads and schedules than I do, that’s for sure! You gotta do what you gotta do.
Anything chocolate =D
