Between the (Gender) Lines: the Science of Transgender Identity

Kerouac is still around? I was in school in the 80s. For some Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace also rate as literary bro-speak for sexist self-important dude; I find with them that self-important, yes, but sexist ymmv. Those are rather most sophisticated-type literary sexists; going by Hemingway, Kerouac and Bukowski is easiest. Kerouac, though, is SO overrated. Capote himself was no master as he acknowledged , but he really worked hard on his books, and he birthed the true crime literary genre with In Cold Blood, so I really respect his work, as a journalist and as a writer. I broke my rule for the first time last year, and that guy raped me.

There are many people trying to trick us in this day and age. This varies from bullshit health advice to the blue pill nature of most of modern society.

Dating a trans woman does not make you gay. Dating a trans woman is ultimately dating a woman; what you are attracted to physically is typically her femininity. We are not men. Yes, we were born.

December 19, at 1: The small deviations from that base fact are some large companies who have decided that if NN will fall, they need to get ready to be cooks instead of dinner. But your post actually suggests a better argument to me: ISPs have a relatively standardized, low cost way to bill their own customers. Similarly, if an ISP wants to play in some business itself, convincing them to let you pay to compete with them is going to be very difficult even if in the long run that is the optimal solution for all parties.

Almost by definition, when a new idea first comes along almost everyone thinks it is worthless. The latter could even lead to a better world than the one we have now, where the internet actually prioritizes traffic in accordance with its economic value. In theory, ISPs could do this more easily by negotiating variable cost plans with their own customers, and letting customers shape their own traffic. But the reality is that customers hate variable pricing.

To cope with his distress, he turned to alcohol and marijuana as a means of escape. Though he was employed as a female professional model, he was generally dissatisfied with his identity and existence, and “was not loving life”. Angel began researching various methods of medical transition, and began this process at the age of This was because Angel was one of the earliest trans men to be allowed hormonal transition, due to which there was limited data on prior cases like his.

He was, as his doctor stated, “going to be my guinea pig”, where experimentation was the main course of action in helping him. Angel was willing to go through with these challenges because, if this could not be a solution to his dysphoria, he would have committed suicide. Eventually, he was taking 1-cc doses of testosterone every 10 days.

Bottom surgery was another aspect he was looking to change, because he wanted to obtain a physical penis to fit the male schema. However, he quickly realized that there was no sufficient technology at the time to create what he desired. He chose not to undergo genital surgery and currently considers his medical transition complete.

8 Ways To Spot A Transsexual

In a Sprite ad for Latin-America , a guy reunites with his school friends, and each encounter finishes with “[insert friend’s childhood nickname], eeeeeeeh! The last one, nicknamed “Oso” “bear” in Spanish , turns out to have transitioned from male to female; we only see her from the back but she’s clearly using heels and a minidress. What do her friends do? Unfortunately, this charity offends her, and she ends the friendship. Maho, one of the two main characters in the manga Double House , is a trans woman, as are a number of the secondary characters.

The world’s largest hotel is in Saudi Arabia, hosts 10, guests, and looks pretty much how you would expect the world’s largest hotel in Saudi Arabia to look..

Yes, I answered her. This post discusses FTM transgender people, and the hormone treatment available to them. Testosterone is what gives a biologically male adolescent his deep voice, body and facial hair, and body shape. Biologically female patients who want to transition towards a traditionally masculine appearance can be prescribed testosterone, either after a course of pubertal suppression or after they have gone through a female puberty.

Testosterone comes in many forms, but usually FTM patients are prescribed injections or a patch. For FTM patients, menstruation can be a frustrating ordeal and a monthly reminder that their body remains female despite their inner identity being male. Within the first six months of hormone treatment, they will stop getting their periods, which is often a huge relief.

Why I no longer hate ‘TERFs’

In , Hirschfeld supervised the second genital reassignment surgery to be reported in detail in a peer-reviewed journal, that of Lili Elbe of Denmark. In , Hirschfeld introduced the German term “Transsexualismus”, [12] after which David Oliver Cauldwell introduced “transsexualism” and “transsexual” to English in and True transsexuals feel that they belong to the other sex, they want to be and function as members of the opposite sex, not only to appear as such.

For them, their sex organs, the primary testes as well as the secondary penis and others are disgusting deformities that must be changed by the surgeon’s knife. Beyond Benjamin’s work, which focused on male-to-female transsexual people, there are cases of the female to male transsexual, for whom genital surgery may not be practical.

Posted on November 21, by Scott Alexander I. Jonah got swallowed by a whale. But the Bible says Jonah got swallowed by a big fish. So the Bible seems to think whales are just big fish. Therefore the Bible is fallible. Therefore, the Bible was not written by God. For all we know, Jonah was swallowed by a really really really big herring. The second problem is that if the ancient Hebrews want to call whales a kind of fish, let them call whales a kind of fish. Suppose you travel back in time to ancient Israel and try to explain to King Solomon that whales are a kind of mammal and not a kind of fish.

So you try again and say that a whale is a behemah, not a dag. You try to explain that no, Solomon is wrong, dag are actually defined not by their swimming-in-sea-with-fins-ness, but by their genes. Who died and made you an expert on Biblical Hebrew? You try to explain that whales actually have tiny little hairs, too small to even see, just as cows and sheep and pigs have hair.

Which is all well and good, but is not the primary focus of this here Transproviser. This was always meant to be a blog about a little bit of everything.

A way for me to share a little bit of who I am and what I think with the world.

“I stared far back into my past and remembered the child who couldn’t be catalogued by Sears. I saw her standing in front of her own mirror, in her father’s suit, asking me .

The original link was no longer working so I just replaced it. Anyway, I thought I would say a few words on the topic. I appreciate that there are so many people out there who are willing to read up on things that they might need to consider when they are dating a trans person. However, I urge people who are dating trans folk of any stripe to first and foremost remember that this person is human first and, as with all humans, they have their own set of ideals, values, insecurities, holdovers from childhood, etc.

That said, there are some widespread issues that trans people have when it comes to dating. For all trans people, the correct pronoun is a big one. Griping about incorrect pronoun usage is already common on blogs by trans folk. But as an emotional or sexual partner, it is even more crucial that you not only get it right, but that you support your partner when they come home grumpy from having been misgendered a bunch of times that day. We already hear all the excuses at work and elsewhere about: With more specific reference to trans guys, something I read a lot on the blogs of my fellow trans men is that they have trouble dealing with the gendered expectations that partners may have.

Whichever sexual orientation a trans guy has, he often winds up dating people who have fairly strict ideas about how a man should act. Unfortunately, this can put a lot of pressure on a guy, especially in early transition when he is still discovering what it means for him to be a man. In terms of sexuality, patience is the key. This guy is discovering a whole new worlds and there will be ups and downs.
