Most transgender people have attempted suicide at least once in their lives. If you have, please lend your support here to those who are having a bad time now. Suicide is never the answer. If you are suicidal, call the Trans Lifeline at (877) 565-8860 in the US or (877) 330-6366 in Canada, or log in to our live chat room and ask to speak with a crisis moderator.
This is a forum to discuss hate and violent crimes against transgender people. It is also a place for victims to talk about what happened to them and gain help and support. Nearly 95% of crimes against us are never reported. If you are a victim, please report it here.
You may post your transgender-related poetry here. Any poetry posted must be your own and any copyright held must be held by you. Copyright infringements will be removed as soon as a moderator becomes aware of it, without notice.
An intersex individual is a person (or individual of any unisex species) who is born with genitalia and/or secondary sexual characteristics of indeterminate sex, or which combine features of both sexes.

I don't like looking like a man I love looking like myself what I see is woman but am forced by circumstance to be perceived as a man this gift of transition has always been a dream that in a million years I would never believe could actually happen and here I am
Thankfully, I legally changed my name to a gender-neutral name years before I realized that I'm trans (I knew I hated my birth name and strongly preferred something neutral but didn't think anything of it at the time, ha!) so my name isn't an issue. I don't have a list of email addresses, but if I did that would be a great idea. Maybe at some point I can figure out how to do that. I think there's at least a list of all the students in each class I'm in, which would include a majority of my cohort, plus some others.
My university organizes things in a ridiculous way, so I don't have one counselor/advisor for everything and I won't get much help there. I think my best bet is contacting each professor personally and having a conversation with them about things. I just hope they're receptive, I feel like I'll just be bothering them or wasting their time. Bleh.
