songs that are definitely about being trans (but not really)

I'm not sure you can get closer!  I've had this stuck in my head for weeks now with the Muppet replaced with woman.

This is Home by Cavetown is, from what I've been told, the anthem for trans men. I just heard it the other day. :)

This thread's been on my mind for awhile, been wanting to keep it alive:


Super early-era Ministry:



"They say 'Why are you dressed like it's Halloween,

You look so absurd, you look so obscene.'




Why can't I live a life for me?

Why should I take the abuse that's served?

Why can't they see they're just like me?

I'm not the one that's so absurd.


It's the same, it's the same in the whole wide world."



"I haven't always been this way, I wasn't born a renegade.

I felt alone, still feel afraid, I stumble through it anyway.

I wish someone would've told me that this life is ours to choose,

No one's handing you the keys or a book with all the rules.


The little that I know I'll tell you.

When they dress you up in lies,

and you're left naked with the truth,


You throw your head back and you spit in the wind,

Let the walls crack, cause it let's the light in.


Let 'em drag you through hell,

they can't tell you to change who you are.


That's all I know so far."

      Thank you so much for sharing this, Allie!   My favorite quote: "People are under no obligation to make sense to you."   @MaeBe I started to tear up when he said that these poor kids are being treated like perverts and freaks just because they're trying to exist.    -Timi

      Exactly. Seems a common theme. Cis people just have so much difficulty wrapping their heads around how all-consuming gender dysphoria can be and how it affects practically every aspect of our lives.

      GraceH   I’m option #1, I had no idea what was going on with me until 30

      YES!!!    I'm trying to grapple with a conversation a very dear and supportive cis woman had earlier this week where she felt it necessary to "educate" my on what natal cis women experience in this world, as I if I had never thought about it and was drifting in some sort of pink cotton candy fantasy.    It just hit home to me days later that she just doesn't know or can't imagine what it's like to be me. That I've thought of my unwanted dilemma from every angle possible for every day of my life, including those long stretches of life where my sustaining practices were denial, avoidance, conformance, and when all else failed, some sort of mind-numbing substance use or abuse.    Sorry for the overflow of words and emotions. What you wrote. Yes. I don't need to be "reminded" either.    Thank you @awkward-yet-sweet   -Timi

      Hi @Rishaya. Thanks for writing on this thread--it's been a long time since. It's good to take stock and see the progress I've made these last three years. It's not so much as to "figure out" my past or even to "understand" it, but merely to accept it and move ahead. Just to read all the stories of folks here tells me that Transgender is a very wide tent and that I'm glad to be under it. My father's family lived in Utica and then Rochester, so I know a bit of that country, I accept it anyway. —Davie

      T shirts that are marketed as unisex or men's don't fit me. They ride up my hips!  I can avoid the problem in two ways. Buying a couple sizes too big, or simply buying women's T's (I'm wearing one now).    My T's from Torrid are cut different and of different material. They just don't ride up my curves.

      I'm battling another UTI, but I'll come if I have enough energy. Thanks. —Davie

      Good morning everyone!!! 3 cups of coffee into the day and feeling good!! I have a few small projects to work on around the house so that should keep me busy and out of trouble. 😄   Enjoy the day!!!! 💕🌈

      I love that smile!!

      Please don't judge me......but I actually bought one a few years back.😱     I used a Norelco to trim myself down there for years and needed to replace it so I tried the Man-scape. I wouldn't trust it everywhere, though. Actually, I began shaving that area completely several years ago with a razor.   I put a new set of blades on the Man-scape and use it to trim my eyebrows, now. 🙃😁🌈   I'm so embarrassed.

      Seen them - although I understand the pink/blue and product the same - I still get the pink now to make me feel better about myself, not them.
