Study on Play Preferences of Transgender Kids

Recommended Posts

Dev

Good morning!

 

I've been contacted by Ms. Melissa Evans, a graduate student in Developmental and Therapeutic Play at Swansea University in the UK.  She's interested in how the play preferences of transgender children - including those who didn't realize they were trans at the time - might differ from the stereotypical expectations.  This survey is open to transgender people over the age of 18 as well as parents, family members, or friends of trans folks who are acquainted with their play habits.

 

I've taken the survey and found it to be entirely harmless - barring any specific traumatic memories you may have associated with play, I didn't see anything in the questions asked that has the potential to trigger any issues.  The survey is completely anonymous.  Contact information for Ms. Evans and her research supervisor is available within the survey itself.

 

If you'd like to help with this research, you can do so at the link below.

I would be incredibly grateful for anyone else willing to take part in this questionnaire, I need a few more responses for my research. This survey will be closing soon so if you can spare 20 minutes it would make a world of difference for my dissertation!

 

Thanks

Melissa

I just did the survey and it is relatively short and easy.  I certainly conjured up fond memories for me.

I completed it, I actually found it quite nice to reminisce on how the signs truly were there from a very young age. Makes you wonder how much the world could improve if we actually listened to children and observed behavioural patterns before pigeon holing everybody into a certain label

I completed it, but it seems I was 100% the opposite of what they “believe”. But then again I’m weird. 🤪 Lol

I also completed it.  Lots of narrative subjective info that would seem hard to sift through for a research project.  It would be interesting to see how it's used.

Thats what I thought as well but I'm sure there will be a wealth of data to parse.

      Your Gynecologist is your best resource.  I tell girls on the way to GCS to line up a post-op Gynecologist who does know Trans people and who has permission to communicate with their surgeons.  It was a little bit funny when I got home from GCS and was hurting while dilating pretty badly and called to schedule an appointment with a Gyn, and they told me the one the HMO wanted me to see had just gotten back from training by Dr. Meltzer and would see me the next day.  Took her six minutes to diagnose a yeast infection and two pills later, all better, but she called my Surgeon (Marci Bowers) and got acquainted since I had r3leases with both of them.   I have a Cis woman friend with vaginismus and while her dilators are a bit different, we can both commiserate.

      That's fantastic news, Trilly.  Congratulations!  Your journey to manhood has begun.  I hope its a smooth one, filled with joy and discovery.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      You guessed it on the pill reason.  Not the stomach so much as the liver though.  The injection and epidermal methods do not involve the liver as much as pills do.  As far as the estrogen gel goes, I have a tube of it about 8 feet away from me, but it works best on cis women and Trans women who are post op with a GCS technique that does create a mucous tissue inside the vagina. Estrogen in pill form is the form most likely to cause blood clots due to liver interaction.

      Congrats, dude!! Yeah, that first shot is scary, but sooo worth it! Looking forward to hearing about your journey.

      Welp, I just did my first self-injection of testosterone! Super scary, but manageable.   I am going to be chronicling my transition by taking a picture of myself every week for at least a year. I hope to have a nice montage by the end of year one! I will eventually post the video on YouTube. No links, I know, but it will be there.   Excitement!

      Ah, confidence will help a ton. Which, recently I find myself having more confidence when he is around. I also have really bad trust and abandonment issues, which he is helping me with. I am very cautious when I like someone. It blows my mind when someone tells me that they like me. I will work on my confidence and self respect.     thank you guys a ton

      Flirting isn’t a skill. It’s a comfort level.  You have to have a few things to make it work.  You have you really be interested in the person. Not just smitten.  You have to be confident in yourself as a lovable person and someone who is also desirable.  You have to relax and let things flow.  You can not plan or act out anything anyone else has said.  It can not be forced.  It comes from inside you as a confident playfulness.  Being clever and humorous is only a small part of it. But it helps a lot.   The biggest thing is to believe in yourself and be brave.  Eventually you see it’s not hard or scary.   just be you.

      Hey Michelle, the heavy dose of masculinity you quoted above reminds me so much of myself and where I came from.  The description is slightly different from mine in detail but very manly, none the less. It sounds like you’re able to look past these male features to see and feel the real you. It was easier for a time growing up to conform to the expected standards set before us but as you and I have both found, it doesn’t last forever.  Eventually, a good number of us see through the mask we put on and start to take control of the situation despite what society or culture dictates.  I congratulate you on getting to this very important part of your journey.  It will make things even better if your wife accepts you as you and becomes a vital support in this journey too.  I wish you the best in either case.   Susan R🌷

      Just something I'm curious about... the three most common methods of administering estrogen are pills, patches, and shots, but from what I can gather, the three most common methods of administering testosterone are patches, shots, and skin gels that you rub in like hand sanitizer. I've never heard of testosterone pills. Anyone know why? Does testosterone not survive in the stomach to get absorbed into the blood? Or for that matter, why is there no estrogen gel?

      Another update -- the problem is actually called vaginismus, and caused by contraction of the vaginal muscles making intercourse painful or not possible. It is not necessarily even related to gender surgery -- it is not uncommon in genetic women. The treatment is... dilation, even for genetic women, and can be handled by someone's regular gyn physician.
