Okay, Apparently People Aren't Getting This....

1.  WE JUST WANT TO PEE IN PEACE.

2. STRAIGHT PRIDE IS HATE PRIDE.

3. WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS.

4. WE ARE NOT TRYING TO ATTACK CULTURE.

 

 

Okay, so here's a point I would like to bring up but it may make people mad. (*oh noooo*)

 

You say that Jesus is God because he lived and did all of these magical things.

I've walked on water, too.

That's right.

Oh, you don't believe me?

Why not?

Because I don't have proof?

You don't need proof. You need faith.

 

Sigh, I don't want this to be blocked for being offensive or anything. It's just some points that I am tired of people who are against us talking about them. 

 

Why can't people just let. us. be.

I get the frustration, and I am at least regular in my church attendance, and see the points you are trying to make without feeling personally attacked. There are Trans people who do have deep spiritual parts of their lives and they see what you are pointing to.  Beliefs that are over 4K years old are being weaponized, because it is easier to spew out "old knowledge" that it is to change and learn new information, especially if people have not been prepared to study the new information, but its easy to take things on "faith" which simply means someone who knew only the little years ago still knows all things today.  Not true and needs a change.

Cause they are miserable. If they were happy, they would not be trying to make others unhappy. For some, it makes people happy when they make others unhappy. Some people are just miserable. The extremist go to great lengths to hurt others, and use religion as an excuse. One cannot profess love, then turn around and do hateful things to others. Those types need to mind their own business.

Exacrtly!!!! It's sickening to think anyone would beleive otherwise.

 

This reminds me, based on what you've said, if you haven't watched it already, there's a section from a stand-up routine of Lewis Black I think you might enjoy. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the video, I just remember it's from back when George W. Bush was president (the more recent younger one, not the older one from the 80's). The particular segment is a scathing satire of anti-homosexual sentiment and the absurd notion that it could destroy american families. If you hear the phrase "Gay Banditos"...you've found it :)

2. STRAIGHT PRIDE IS HATE PRIDE.

 

I'm NOT disagreeing with you at all here, so don't get me wrong. And I absolutely understand the frustration. I don't know what (if it was even any one thing in particular at all) prompted this obviously genuine need to speak out, and I will not ask because it's none of my business unless you choose it to be, and that is perfectly OK. So what I CAN say, and just hope I'm near the mark is this:

 

If I saw some sort of "straight pride" event, then I'd say, in this current climate, ESPECIALLY here in the US these last few years,  it's DEFINITELY most likely to be a matter of hate speech.

 

But, it does bring up a point that I think is important for EVERYBODY (gay, straight, cis, trans, bi, questioning, ANYTHING) to always keep in mind: "Equality" means "Equality". For EVERYONE.

 

Just as an example, I'll ask you this: When you feel pride at being trans, do you intend that pride at who you are to also double as being hatred for cis individuals? I imagine I'm likely not going out on any limb here to assume that's probably not your intent. And again, don't get me wrong, there's absolutely no doubt there ARE, unfortunately, narrow-minded individuals out there will take their hatred and bigotry and disguise it, like you say, as "straight pride". And that's very unfortunate.

 

But, if trans and cis (not to mention gay, bi, straight, fluid, and everything else) are ever to achieve equality, then everyone, on all sides will have to accept that either EVERYONE is allowed to feel pride in who they are (trans, cis, etc...) or NOBODY is allowed. Because that's what equal means: "We are the same".

 

Cheers, and I hope you find the serenity you're looking for. We (humanity) are all in this together...

Being from the northeast i walk on water every winter.  From what i know of the New Testament trans folks shouldn't be a problem.  Those throwing stones certainly aren't without sin.

 

Hugs,

      Honestly I feel uncomfortable talking about high school and how I was.  I always feel like I am boosting.  I mean it was basically a very good male high school experience packed full of life!   If I had known then what I know now about myself I wonder how different I would of been.   My young adult hood wasn’t terrible until my marriage/divorce Massive child support years.  That’s tragic.  Lol

      This is very true.  There are changes that I don’t feel I can talk about because it is so subjective and unprovable.  Add the fact that everyone has a different experience to some degree and you have a recipe for doubt and possible ridicule from others.   Actually Kathy, this “lightness and joy” is a very good description of my general feeling while being on E.  Although prior to E (and medical transition), I was somewhat depressed and had a deep rooted anger that was present under it all.  Also, for someone my age, I had a high pre-transition T level (835ng/dL).  So being down at 17ng/dL now, I’ve noticed very little desire to compete to the death (lol) with others and even with myself like I once did.  That has reduced my overall stress immensely and has allowed me to stay calm in situations that normally would’ve had me raging.   Emotions are closer now to the surface with the exception of anger (I’m happy about that).  Some emotions like are less controllable as some have mentioned.  These new feelings make it easier for me to empathize, apologize and forgive others much easier now.  I like the new emotional me and so does my wife.  It works well with my personality.   Susan R🌷

      It'll be hard to say until it happens, though if it has to do with weight loss and muscle mass, I'm not sure I'll lose all that much (I'm kind of a beanpole as it is). Though I will definitely keep in mind to exercise, more to prevent losing too much muscle mass.     I'm glad others find it interesting . Personally mental/emotional changes weren't immediate, sounds more or less the same for those who have shared so far. Though it does sound like it kicks in relatively early on (within the first month or so). The only possible experience I have with this so far is occasionally my eyes tear up a bit. It's far from crying. I don't really have any emotion (that I sense) attached to it, just a little wetness. Not even positive its related to HRT, but I don't recall it happening (at least not nearly this frequent) before.   I appreciate people contributing so much to this. Thanks, Taylor
    • KathyLauren
      It took me a while to notice the emotional changes, because they were really subtle.  I suspect they probably happened in the first week or two, but it took me longer than that to be aware of them.   Right now, I have been off my E for a week, due to upcoming surgery.  What I noticed coming off it (because I was looking for it) is that my emotions have gone "flat" and "heavy".  Sorry, I can't describe it any better than that.  I feel none of the lightness and joy that I have felt for the last three years.  This is what I felt pre-transition.  I know in my head that I am in a better place now, but for the time being, I don't feel it.   I presume that the change starting E happened in about the same time frame as stopping it: about a week, maybe two.   Regards, Kathy

      Aloha fam!    Just wanted to introduce myself, and let you know I'm super excited to be a part of this wonderful community!   I'm an Active Duty Navy Chief, with 11 years of service so far.  I started my transition in August of 2018, and got my diagnosis that November.  I started HRT in April 2019, and have grown so much since.  As a member of multiple communities, to include SPART*A Trans on Facebook, as well as all the major social media platforms, I wanted to reach out here and continue spreading positivity.  I have A LOT of knowledge about the policies and procedures for the Department of Defense as a whole.  So if there are any questions, concerns, or you are just wanting someone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me!   See my interests/bio for more info about me.  Again, I'm super happy to be here, and look forward to chatting with you all! Hugs! 😊💖 -Ava

      the funny thing is that I could talk a lot about emotionnal changes but in my life this subject was so controversial and impossible to prove scientifically that I mostly kept all the mental/emotionnal changes to myself so far. I could talk a lot about it and it fascinate me but I feel that if you do that you often get a sceptical eye hahaha
    • MaryMary
      for me it took a couple of weeks to have the full mental effects. It's easy to not realize it's there depending on your personnality. It's also very controversial to even mention this IRL, lol All I can say it's that it's there. I mainly observed this in the beginning because of how my gut reaction to daily parenthood changed. To me it's really like a second puberty, it's the best way I can describe it. I remember having one on one meetings with my boss and being incapable of stopping myself from crying. It was totally unwanted and very far from the frozen/dissociated/cold me from the past.  Contrary to cis woman you have 0 experience with dealing with it so it can be surprising and I know that I was a little ... unstable... in the beginning. You do learn some tricks after a while to control your hormones.
    • MaryMary
      if, like me, you have 0 T or almost then you can take P that can potentially help you gain some libido depending on your genetics. (or at least that's what I understood from my doctor)
    • MaryMary
      Before HRT the adrenal gland and the testicles are producing. Hrt blocks T from those sources and replace it by E GRS removes testicles and you take meds to have E Some doctors like mine will make me stop E once I'm old enough and all feminizing effects are done.
    • DeeDee
      This is a really fascinating thread. Thanks for starting it Taylor  I would be interested in the mental and emotional changes with HRT, was it immediate or did it take a while for your body to adjust not having T anymore?
    • MaryMary
      synthetic estrogen and T are pure forms of their respective hormones. A small percentage of testosterone is made in the adrenal glands on top of our kidneys. About 5% I think. According to my blood tests I'm not sure my liver was producing that much but hey, that's what I'm reading. I know that my doctor is trying to put my numbers near those of cis people but I have like... 99% E and 1 % T which is probably more E then a cis woman. That must be why I have 0 libido, lol That's the reason why you need a doctor for this (I know it's obvious) because it can be hard to match numbers of cis people, much harder then you might expect...
    • Jackie C.
      It's not dramatic by any means,  but yes I've lost about half a shoe size.  Of course that makes me a women's 13. Keeping in mind that I specifically started working out to keep from losing too much muscle mass and to keep myself from gaining too much weight from the HRT. Then it was a certain amount of body pride because I wanted to look nice.   So yeah, half a shoe size.    Hugs!
    • MaryMary
      wow, we took roads that are so different to us coming out and be ourselves. That's so interesting to me. Thanks a lot for sharing.   the jock who went in the USAF and the effiminate (insert pejorative word here) who studied in litterature and was part of a poetry club. lol that's so amazing
