Anonymous said: I'm a trans man and have been on T for two years. I had unprotected sex with a trans woman three months ago. She has been on hormones for two years as well. What are the chances that I could be pregnant? I don't want to buy a test and feel dysphoric if it's not likely.

I think it depends on the dosage and other variables like that. Most trans women will become sterile (let me know if this is the wrong term) in about 3 months? For trans men it’s more up in the air I think? I don’t have much knowledge in this stuff. But what I honestly think you should do is talk to a healthcare professional that you trust and then go from there. 

If anyone has more information on this topic, please let me know.

Anonymous said: I'm getting into a relationship with a male (I am a female) who considers himself trans. I think this is amazing and I love the chance to be with him, but he wants me to get a strap-on so we can have sex this way, because he prefers it. The thing is, I am not comfortable with this. How do I tell him this without seeming judgmental or bitchy?

I don’t know your partner and I don’t know you so it’s hard for me to give advice like this but to put it simply, talk to him. Explain how you feel uncomfortable about it, talk it out. That’s all you really can do. I hope this helps.

Anonymous said: One of my closest friends is a pre-op trans male, using the pronoun "they." When I'm referring to them in the past - when they identified as a girl - am I supposed to use "she" or "they?"

If their preferred pronoun is they/them, then you use they. Never use a pronoun that someone does not prefer. Even if you’re talking about them in the past, it’s disrespectful.

A message I got from @daavenrey

(Since your ask isn’t working)

I just wanted to say Thank You, especially as a colored pre-op transgender woman in her teens, this blog offers so much support, as well as focus on transgender issues in the media and around the world.  It means a lot to have representation, as well as a blog dedicated to the struggle of a minority within a minority, facing/challenging stigmas towards us in our “modern” society, specifically America.  It’s rare to find an educated stance and prospective and informational blog amongst the countless white cis male run blogs exploiting us as freaks and creatures in the porn industry here in Tumblr.  It doesn’t help at all, regarding the fact that I am a Southeast Asian transgender woman (Filipino), and at least half of this “shemale porn”, is marginalized towards “asian ladyboys”.  It is disgusting how many cross dressers, transvestites, and cis-men, (heterosexual), treat/see me because I’m another “pretty face”, further more because I am Asian.
 ”



I actually disabled my ask box because I was getting inappropriate and irrelevant messages from trans men/cis men. But I just opened it up again because I realize regardless of that, it would make it easier for people with actual relevant comments and/or questions (like you) to contact me. So, yeah, sorry about it being closed. But I fixed it now.

Thank you for sending me this, I try my hardest to run this blog as best as I can. It means a lot to me to hear you say that. :)

While we celebrated LGBT Pride in June, four trans women of color were murdered across the country.
What will we do to protect our sisters?

transwomanism:

Gender, Sex, Biology & Trans Women

Many of us understand sex and gender as categorically separate when envisioning trans women. How do we enforce transmisogyny through biological essentialist views of what we define as “sex” when imagining trans women? This storify examines how we enforce physical & ontological gender violence through non-consensual cisnormative separations of sex and gender. Sex is very much a gendered concept with its own colonial and violent baggage.

Note: This is a partial storify. Read the full version here

IMPORTANT GROSS PSYCHIATRIST ALERT

tinycrowley:

Dr. B. Gupta in Louisville, Kentucky, USA is a known trans/homophobic psych. I have personally been turned away from his services because of my gender and sexuality when I was forced to come out to him, he proceeded to tell me that he could no longer help me. Please spread this like wildfire. We may not have many psychs here but this guy is not worth your money.
