How can you become neither?

Recommended Posts

Entropic

Born male but I really don't feel like a man or a woman. I don't really care how society views me, pronouns don't matter to me that much. I will probably always just say he, because "used in a generic sense or when the sex of the person is unspecified" -websters. So grammatically correct if you are unsure.

Now, I am considering the idea of getting my testicles removed. I don't feel attached to them, they mostly just get in the way. Uncomfortable to sit in certain positions, painful if you hit them the wrong way. Problem is from what I understand your penis pretty much becomes useless after that, so would it be better to just fully change my parts? And once removed my hormones would need something to regulate them, so which do I take? This is all up in the air right now, just some food for thought. Whenever/if I choose to take action I will of course speak with medical specialists.

We have several members here who have had Orchiectomies only and have no problems physically, but they are mostly MtF and take Estrogen.  I also have IRL friends who have had "orchie's" and who have found an Endocrinologist who keeps them at a certain level of each hormone to prevent bone density problems.  All in all pretty uneventful as it should be,  There is what is called a cosmetic Vulvaplasty where only the labia majora and urethral repositioning and cliteroplasty using the penile glans are used, but no vaginal cavity.  Those are possibilities, but you must be the one to choose and be comfortable.

 

I doubt your state will provide the option of a gender neutral state ID card any time soon but they will probably give you a license with an androgynous  picture on it without too much trouble.  Take it slow on your look changing but go for it, and most  people will not say anything for a long time.

Hi Entropic,  The NH Governor recently signed a Gender Identity Law which prohibits discrimination.  "The new law defines gender identity as “a person’s gender-related identity, appearance, or behavior, whether or not that gender-related identity, appearance, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person’s physiology or assigned sex at birth.”

I saw recently that there was a move to amend the choices on state issued driver's licenses and ID's in Maine and Massachusetts.  I would hope with the new law this issue will be addressed soon. Currently the change form just offers male and female checkboxes.

 

An Orchi affects the use of your penis only to the effect that semen is no longer produced.  Everything else functions although libido may be curtailed so the addition of one or both hormones in proper doses is recommended.

I think Oregon, California, Washington and DC all offer or will soon offer a gender neutral option as well.

This is something I've been looking into as well and so far I've found there is no easy solution. As far as I'm concerned the penis is only useful for going to the toilet, everything else is annoying to me. It seems this is different to you.

 

So here is the important thing - whatever happens without testicles depends largely on your hormones. If you don't choose any hormone replacement, you risk ending up with a variety of typical health issues - low bone density, depression etc. To compensate there is either testosterone replacement or oestrogen replacement. As far as I am aware, testosterone replacement would effectively maintain most of the functionality of the male body, including erections. Oestrogen on the other hand interrupts most of it and depending on the dosage will have some feminising effects. To me none of these options are ideal (I hate erections, but wouldn't want too obvious feminine features either), but you may find that testosterone replacement might be what you're looking for.

 

Whatever you end up preferring, I fully agree that you'll need some very good expert advice. This is not one of the standard routes, so it requires some extra care.

Vicky, this law just passed and came into effect.  I'm not sure many outlets have the information yet.  I am really hoping this will be a springboard to more protections and positive changes for us in NH which is generally considered a conversation state.  If Maine can do it so can we.

Despite the vitriol we hear and read about everyday, there is change afoot.

      If this policy is not blocked by the courts, the result will be more trans women murdered and assaulted.  If homeless trans folk cannot find shelter in an appropriate place, they will either live on the street, or seek housing in men's shelters, where they will be preyed upon.  But hey, trans folk are unimportant to this administration, so if more of us die, its no sweat off their backs.     Carolyn Marie

      TOns of nostalgia for sure! It’s funny how I can remember back to those days and what I was doing back then, who I was hanging with while I was playing. I started out PvP, but that’s cause the girl I was seeing at the time, played wow, and she is the one that got me to start. I don’t like pvp that much, cause I don’t enjoy getting ganked while I’m questing. It was kinda fun at Wintergrasp, and some battlegrounds. But it sucks questing alone. As for PvE, I don’t mind questing alone, but I do miss the Raids. My guild doesn’t have as many people as we used to, and I haven’t Raided with my old group forever. The new Characters are fun tho. Allied Races are a bit op at times, but I love it. Tell me if you ever start up again! We could quest together, and I could run you though some dungeons. 😊

      Hahah indeed ^ . ^ Cool though! Glad to have started when it came out as I really liked BC...though that could just be nostalgia talking 😄 Had a pretty cool soundtrack though that is for sure.

      What really irritated me in a companion article was that he endorsed people with very slanderous views about lgbtq people. Including the one who compared the community to isis! Really? I’m sorry but I don’t see any lgbtq people driving around in US supplied tanks and armored vehicles going town to town and beheading people for disagreeing with them, or just for kicks. I don’t see any of us strapping bombs to ourselves and blowing up outdoor markets. I don’t see any of us demanding shariah law (well maybe a few odd cases but those are individuals) so it’s not a community platform. Maybe we can be seen as subversive to some who really think that we are a threat to how they choose to live but it’s really a delusion. The only thing I’ve seen at the core of the issue is the desire to be free and those who choose to impede that freedom. I really don’t think isis shares that point of view. To them freedom is one sided. Perhaps these idiots should look in the mirror and see how close they are in ideology to the middle eastern boogie man?

      The problem with impeachment is that the Senate is the jury that needs to convict him of the offenses, and we know that with McConnell in there, that will not happen, in fact McConnell can even refuse to have the matter heard there so impeachment will be hollow and ineffective.  Presenting the evidence during the campaign next year will hopefully make even Trumps devotees wake up and at least not vote for him.

      As Kirsten mentioned, a name of She will create attention toward you...for a variety of reasons.  Even non-judgmental folks may react with a bit of confusion.  And most folks, I suspect, would require an explanation first that you're using She as a proper name and not just a pronoun, before adjusting thereafter.  In other words, if you have a desire to "stop all the questions," an unusual name like that will not stop them.   Best of luck!   Astrid

      Weights? Like Dumbells and such :o? If so, what size (i have access to i think..they're 10lbs at the moment. Will those suffice?)?? I've done forward lunges before, but i tend to lose my balance and feel a strain in my feet, so i was never sure if i was doing them right, do you have any tips ;^_^? Don't want to get half way down and then go ALL the way down flat on my ass, you know xD? Resistance bands i do have. I have the "Spri" ones that are kinda like...wide and rectangular, do those work? 2 tbsp, got it! Thank you!!!! Ah, i did forget that. I heard about and witnessed the risk of mental instability when it came to hrt...which scares me....a lot...it wouldn't be an over-exaggeration to say i'm petrified of the idea...anything that can be done in that department? Classic saying, that. Which you're very right about xD! ? Off topic: Any idea how to edit posts? wanted to change something in my original one ;^_^...

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, hon, and thank you for sharing how you feel and what's going on in your life.  Keeping things inside is never a good thing, and you recognize that, which helps.  Opening up to us here, even if we're all relatively anonymous, is a step in the right direction.  I hope you continue to let us into your life, if even just a little, so we can offer whatever help that we can.  That's what we do around here; offer support, information, and a place to vent.  Anything you need from us, any time of day or night, someone will be here for you.   It gets better, hon.  It does.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      It’s just another example of politicians bait and switch. And yes there’s too much petty “change things back” politics that have absolutely no bearing on the real issues he ran on. What about balancing the budget? Creating more jobs? Improving the quality of life for all Americans? For someone so persuasive about that it sure seems like he wants to exclude a growing segment of the population from those benefits. Isn’t personal bias supposed to have no place in executive decision? Shouldn’t it be impeachable to lie during campaign speeches or when bringing personal bias into the office of president?

      Add weights to your squats, and add in lunges. Forward and backwards. Also adding weights to those will help. Or resistance bands.  Be careful with peanut butter. It may be high in protein, but it’s also very high in fats. It’ll make you chunky before it makes you thick. I go by the rule of 2 tbsp of pb a day max.    I didnt notice anything mentioned about hrt either. That will do a good job of shaping yourself as well but it is all limited due to your genes too. Like the old adage goes.... You get what you get and don’t get upset. Cause it’s better than what you had rite?! 😜
    • Kirsten
      Like your actual first name will be She? That’s very interesting I guess. But it’ll create a lot of questions I’m sure.  I have a friend who changed her name to Mädchen when she transitioned. It means girl in German. We call her Maddie though. Maybe something like that could be an option as well.
