I am not advertising Pantene Hair products, just showing some recent You Tube stuff sent to me by friends.
This is a PEOPLE MAGAZINE article on the project.
Hey, I'm a new FtM member, but I'm still questioning that. At the moment, I'm still figuring out my name, but you can just call me Victor or Vex. Either one works. Here's some stuff about me.
Height: 5'2" (sadly)
Gendre: AFAB (FtM; Questioning)
Interests: Art, music, cooking, baking, sewing, gaming, game creation, Chinese (gay) dramas anything involving computers really
Parents: Supportive but questions me about it
Thank you for reading this.
This is a decent book. I bought the paperback version some time ago. They referenced a companion audio file that could be downloaded that demonstrated the exercises, etc. Unfortunately I cannot find it.
Thank you! I just want to let you know that I prefer to go by Dillon, but my parents said that I am not allowed to make that my first name.
(and the name Dillon B had already been taken)
Shawna and Laura,
I'm reading through a Kindle book called The Voice Book for Trans and Non-Binary People. It has good reviews and it has been helpful so far. It doesn't have an Audible version so you would have to read it rather than listen to it. But it has lessons you could learn while reading and then practice while you're driving.
I have also watched a number of YouTube videos that have been helpful. There are several sisters who I can't believe they aren't cis, so I steer away from any others.
If I find a good source for lessons that can be done while driving I will post here.
Love and Hugs 💋
Well I asked for “the gift of shopping “. Lol
Gift cards are my best friend lately.
There are so many female things I want it’s crazy. Some I am not ready to wear in public yet but nevertheless want them.
I don’t know all my sizes from brand to brand so I need to try things on. I can’t exactly ask for anything outright yet. I love to shop and look and buy. Dream over some things.
Same to you Shawna! And I'm sorry I've been misspelling your name. I had read one of your earlier posts where you said you had tried to put Shawn as your name but it wouldn't let you, so I was trying to respect that. I wasn't paying enough attention to your signature in your replies!
I had downloaded an iPhone app call VoiceUp and it seemed to be helping. The analyzer gave me fairly good numbers well into the female range with very little male range recorded. Just after a short while too. Though to me I still sound male.
I realize the range of a cis women can vary fairly low in pitch to very high. But still. To me I still sound male. I hate it.
At best I may sound like a gay male. Which is a beginning I suppose.
I plan to seek out a voice trainer in my area if I can get it covered under insurance. Fingers crossed.
Tally, I'm so happy that you're finally making it to the endocrinologist! I want to start HRT so much! A while ago I actually started on some herb cream that was causing changes very quickly. I was ecstatic but soon realized I had to slow down for safety but also because at some point in the not so distant future my wife would figure it out. That's when I came out to her and she insisted I stop. My dysphoria skyrocketed.
If you're comfortable with it please share as your body begins to align with your true self.
We may of been born and even lived a huge amount of time in our male shells but inside we are women. Something we are trying slowly to bring out and bloom.
This is how I know you. Read you. I am glad to of met you here and hope to hear and read more from you.
lot of love
This is the best time of the year to browse through the female side of Wally World, and buy frilly things with lots of straps. "My wife/gf/mistress told me she wants a new _____ for Christmas." If it doesn't fit, "surprize her" by exchanging yourself after Christmas for a better size. Realistically, they're too busy to care about anything except getting off ... er, work that is, not the other.
Has there been any further response to your question?
Did you get the EVA MTF for the iphone?
I too am working on my voice, since I sound VERY male, and am still in transition.
You have no idea how much I feel this. For years, I would literally tell myself that I should have been a boy, that I was just waiting for the testosterone to kick in, everything like that, but totally dismissed the idea that I was trans. It was (and still kinda is) confusing, but eventually I learned to just do what made me the happiest, which I now know is rocking a man's jeans, a man's haircut, and a man's name.
I'm just so used to getting a reaction from females as if I'm a guy. I'm overly sensitive to the idea that something I have said was taken wrong. It has happened so many times with varying reactions.
