Vocal Therapy Offers A Non-Surgical Method of Feminizing the Voice That Works

thank you - I've tried hard to change my voice but to no avail yet I don't have a deep voice.

Speech therapy/voice therapy has been around for a while. The issue is manipulation of the larynx, and moving the sounds forward into the upper airway. This change the vibration and resonance. With training, one can elevate their pitch. It takes a great deal of practice. I went through a year and a half of speech therapy, and still opted for the Wendler's glottoplasty. Honestly, I would have been happier if I could have built a time machine, went back to when I was a pre-pubertal kid, and taken HRT to keep my voice from changing. The kids who can still transition and go through the puberty they want, have a huge advantage. Unfortunately, a certain party wants to make life miserable for all transgender individuals regardless of age.

this is the way I have chosen because it allows me to keep my deep masculine voice so that I can easily troll people online or in person.

      Yeah.  The eyeliner, foundation,  lipstick, blush, eye shadow and whatever else they sell to gullible young women gets abandoned as we get older, but it also depends on the crowd.  My wife wears makeup whenever she leaves the house, chiefly foundation that blends with her skin, hides blemishes (not that she has anything of the sort, says her dutiful mate) and probably can't really be noticed.  And lip balm.  Neither can be particularly noticed.   Yesterday we ate out and our waitress, young sweet thing, had at least eyeliner and heavy-duty lip paint, seemingly one step beyond lipstick, sort of a shiny black.  And facial piercings, which tend to freak me out.   The women at church after 40 or so are subtle in their makeup.  Some of the younger ones are more, shall we say, colorful.

      I don't have the report, but there was a study on teenage suicide prevention programs.  The conclusion was interesting: telling kids that suicide was an option that they should not take caused more kids to kill themselves.  Help should be available, but over-broadcasting it apparently turns some kids suicidal.   "Real" trans kids do not need anyone to tell them they are trans.  Someone with other problems may be told that all they need to do is transition and their problem will go away, sort of like giving an appendectomy for a broken leg.  I was glad to see the detransitioning rate is as low as it is; stuff I had read indicated it was a lot higher.   I think kids should be told there are resources available but not be pushed, which apparently happens to some kids, according to the testimonies of some detransitioners.  Gender dysphoria is real but treating it is not the solution to every problem.   Someone may work out they are trans only after decades, and growing up in the wrong gender will generate comorbidities.    I think detransitioning would generate all sorts of problems, particularly if the individual transitions again (someone did this).  Physical, emotional, psychological problems.  Best to be mean and screen people as accurately as possible, which I think is being done.  Gatekeeping can be important in sorting out those who are trans from those who are, say, suffering from bipolar disorder.

      Indeed.  I also suspect that there are trans folks who may not know who they really are.   And also those who think they are, due to the increasing focus on the issue, when perhaps they might not be.  Trying to figure it out it's like trying to diagnose yourself on WebMD.

      Woman's t shirt, women's jeans, sneakers.  No bra.  My boobies are bigger without a sports bra, but it is a Catch-22.  I fail the pencil test, so I don't technically need a bra. Bra == girl, boobs == girl.  Thinking about just breaking the barrier, accepting I look this way and cannot fight it, and buying a nice pink top and a denim skirt.  It would cause a lot of uproar that I do not want to face.

      Maybe there's a reason, just sayin'

      Looks nice. I've never tried makeup.  One time my daughter put some on me, it was pretty bad.  But admittedly, the light was not so great.  IDK, I don't really notice any women my age with any.

      I can deal with mental torture pretty well for the most part. I can listen to a song 90 times straight. Especially up beat ones except for the one Dylan Mulvanne came out with. I feel like my mind would definitely go crazy.

      Maybe not.  But some trans people don't want to be visible for… reasons.
    • Ashley0616
      I hope you are feeling better. I'm sorry what you have to go through.

      my outfit to my cousins bridal shower. Also my first experience having my makeup applied professionally. The makeup artist, another trans woman, did a great job and used a hair straightener on my hair.

      Yikes, @Birdie, I hope you do rest and recover well.  I get occasional tachycardia, and it is scary when it happens.  It certainly wasn't an over-reaction for them to call the ambulance, especially with chest pains as well.     I hope you said yes!

      I'm also interested.... it would be nice to figure out how to gain a bit of weight.   I don't have and eating disorder, or at least I don't think I do. I just don't seem to eat enough. I have always had a high metabolism, and I have always been slender. But at my current height I used to be 115 lb. A year ago I was down to 105 lbs. I know I lost weight when I got assaulted, and I never gained it back. But recently my husband put me on the scale because he said I've looked and felt really skinny. I weighed only 97 lb, which is not healthy for my height.  So I have to gain 15 to 18 lb, I'm not sure how I can do that.   Mostly, I think I have a hard time sitting down and just eating a meal. I get distracted taking care of the kids, and I don't usually feel really hungry because I nibble on things through the day. I live on a lot of nuts and berries and vegetables.  Good nutrients, but not much calories.  Probably need to eat more pork and mashed potatoes 😄
