A Question for Mascandrogynes

Recommended Posts

If anyone here identifies as mascandrogyne, I could use some help, if you don't mind.

How would you describe what being mascandrogyne feels like?

How often do you get feelings of being partially female or neutral, if you do?

If you get those feelings, does it bother you when you feel more female, or do you feel indifferent to it, feel like you just have to deal with it, or anything similar?

I hope I'm not being intrusive, but I am on my journey to figure myself out, for myself, and it's become something very important to me.

Thank you for any help.

Hey there @Cary , just saw this and am sad it took this long to give feedback, but hope this in some way helps. I guess in a way I could identify a bit with mascandrogyne. I try for the most part to be indifferent about my gender, but would be lying if I said it didn't bother me being identified constantly as female. My natural hormones don't exactly help my situation. Life has just been a long challenge of waves of uncertainty and I'm still not out, also I don't like advertising my lack of interest in play the gender games society is accused to enforcing. I'm not androgynous, more gender non-conforming/bigender.

A lot of the experience is just learning to take the hard punches society pulls and not take people's opinions/beliefs to heart. Be yourself, don't reside and force yourself into being what everybody else believes you to be. You're your own reality, that's a mystery to many normies and mostly everybody you don't let in. It's not the most ideal situation, but you do what you can and just try to be safe as best you can. The world isn't the kindest or nicest of places, and can be straight merciless at times, but it's not always terrible. It's a journey and quest for internal/external prosperity to be the best you living free in the present as yourself. You can't help or do much if you're busy burying yourself away. Be free and proud friend, live long and prosper.

Hi @Mx.Drago,

Thank you for your reply! Thank you for sharing some of your journey with me, as well. I've done a lot more looking into the androgyne identity, and bigender, as well, and I think I can say because of the specifics, I don't think either is really a fit for me, although others have said otherwise, but only because I asked for their thoughts.

I'm just kind of going with trans nonbinary right now, because I know I'm trans and nonbinary, so it works and it's easier than getting into so many details online. 

I'm only out online, although I'm sure my kids know, one of them anyway, because I've been experimenting with my presentation a lot.

Unfortunately, I'm living in probably the most unsafe state in the US right now, and I won't be out to anyone here, anytime soon, thanks to the worst governor I've ever witnessed in my life time. As much as I'm enjoying my presentation, I've got me and my kids' safety to think about. It's now become impossible to trust anyone here I don't already know, and maybe even some people I do know.

I very much appreciate your response, though, and hope you are able to stay safe, as well.

      Hi everyone just a question about dating while transitioning or transistioned. I found heeps of social media posts and videos saying how hard it is to find a man or a woman to accept them. Then I see posts about how men love them too.   I am confused, what is it really like for an M to F transgender woman to find partners? Are cis-lesbians ok with transgender women? what are your experiences?  Also, if interested in men, what kind of experiences have you had with dating men?    I know an ex-gf who was a transgender woman who got a bf almost straight away after me. Do you think she was just lucky? she was attractive. So I assumed it was not all that hard, but then I see posts on social media saying how hard it is and they all run away.    What are some experiences you've had in real life as a transgender woman? with a man or a woman partner/dating Thank you

      I can understand that, I find it hard to make friends too. But don't worry about telling people you're transitioning. Just concentrate on making one good friend. Then when the time is right for you, you'll confide in each other. Only my closest friends know I'm ftm and I transitioned 10 years ago. It's no bodies business but yours, until you feel comfortable to share. If you don't mind me asking, where are you from? Haha yes I used to fal asleep too. The app that I use starts with very small meditations of about 5 minutes and slowly builds up. Do you have any close friends that you can talk to and vent? Apart from us obviously 😁

      I have a cami with an internal shelf bra that works fine with some tops.

      You're looking good. I have a couple of sports bras, but have only worn them outside under a tank top. I feel very confident about being in public all the time. I don't like dressing male - feels embarrassing. Kinda flipped the table from a year ago. Anyway, I have to give in to the no-tank sports bra look while the weather is still too warm.

      Since I have started looking for starter bras now, I was trying on my bralettes/sports bras and realized how affirming they were and after seeing other women wearing sportsbras out all summer, I felt it was my time too and paired with my Old Navy black joggers. So I took a aerobic walk at one of our State Parks then stopped in a local fusion place to get dinner after. Only thing is these types of bras squish what little I have going to begin with. It looks like my top is going to take some time just to get something modest. But it boosted my confidence and felt great.

      Hi @Sol, I read The Fountainhead years ago, as well as Atlas Shrugged. As I look back, I have a couple of thoughts. First, saying that I liked them doesn't seem to do both justice. They are extremely thought provoking books and should probably be required reading. Second, the themes she put forth in both works are particularly apt today in view of current events. Both are well woth the reading.

      @Sol Thank you for your answer, friend! I wanted to see what others thought of. I remember having a different book of a different author, reading the first couple of pages, then becoming scared and never finishing it. And that was 8 years ago!
    • Sol
      I read the Fountainhead, @JJ Orange! Granted, I was in like seventh grade when I read it, but yeah I liked it! It's an odd piece with Ayn Rand's unique style, but overall pretty good. There are dubious elements around the mid-late chapters so be on the lookout for that. Nothing explicit, but it was definitely enough to make me do more than one double take.

      I'm not to comfy showing a lot of skin because of being fat but sometimes if its really hot out I have to to stay cool. I love short tops, or crop top Ts on other people but not on me so much. Tank tops  and camisole tops just roll up if I pull them down  which is so annoying.

      I've been looking at immigrating to Canada (as the US is a flaming pothole and Canada seems better on several levels. And yes, I know it's not perfect) so I'll see how many gender clinics are in the area I want to move to.  As for dressing and living as my target gender, that's really what I've been trying to do for the past year on my own. Granted, I'm not moving in any big social circles but college is here and I've been looking at getting a job next year so that'll be good practice.

      Hi Helen! I started out where you are, and I can only give glowing recommendations for TransPulse.  Questioning your gender identity is pretty overwhelming and scary, but I can offer a bit of advice that helped me.  You don't have to have it all figured out in a short time period. And it's okay to try out multiple different identities to find one (or more!) that you resonate with. And, as always, there's no shame in asking questions!  So, welcome to TransPulse, and I wish you all the best on your gender journey!
