I thought it was about damn time for an update!
11 months post-op top surgery and one year and nine months on T.
Something I wanted to discuss but forgot was health insurance and applying as male for next year. Perhaps I will write a little somethin’ about all that jazz soon.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on here, but I wanted to pose a question:
What is a man or what does it mean to be a man?
Things I’ve been thinking about…
I really, truly can’t understand why you would want to invest yourself in defining trans* identity exclusively by body dysphoria and medical transition.
I am a trans woman. I have body dysphoria just like you do, but my most difficult and triggering moments aren’t in front of…
I really need to try to update more regularly, but life just gets so busy!
Anyway, here’s a little (who am I kidding, it’s 10 minutes long…I blab..) update video on what’s been going on with me!
I’m a year and a half on testosterone and eight months post-op! Woo!
A pretty lengthy update covering the Philly Trans* Health Conference/my trip to NYC, coming out to my grandparents, becoming legally male (minus birth certificate!) and other fun things going on in my life!
I’m 1 year and 5 months on T and 7 months post-op top surgery!
Sorry the video is so long…I just had a lot to talk about!
serenity6809 asked: Wow. I stumbled upon your blog tonight and literally read the entire thing in one sitting. I am in awe of your strength, especially at such a young age. I am not transgendered, nor do I personally know any transgendered individuals myself. However, I can relate to different aspects of the journey. My question: do you have any spiritual beliefs and if so, how do they play a part of this process?
Well first off, thank you for taking the time to read threw my blog. I really appreciate it!
To answer your question, no I technicaly don’t have any spiritual beliefs, but I would definitely say I am a spiritual person and identify as agnostic.
I did not grow up going to church or temple, etc. My parents felt that my siblings and I should explore religion on our own, figure things out for ourselves. I’m very thankful for that.
I hope this answers your question, and thanks again for reading/watching :)
Anonymous asked: i dont really understand what genderqueer means. does that mean your transgender or no?
Genderqueer falls under the transgender umbrella. So technically, if you say you’re genderqueer that would mean you are trans*. (Read the post I reblogged below my last video!) There are many interpretations/definitions of genderqueer.
For me, I still say I am genderqueer because I don’t fit the typical male stereotype…or what society sees as being masculine and male. However, at the end of the day I want to be read as male and I want people to use male pronouns when referring to me.
Gender is super fluid, and some people see genderqueer falling in the middle of the “gender spectrum” or outside of it as well. As I said before, there are several interpretations of what it means to be genderqueer.
Hopefully I answered your question and didn’t confuse you more. Also, my apologies for not answering this sooner!
