I felt the need to say this: i feel like with trans people, theres always an expectation for us to have bottom surgery. But its not always what we want. Im a trans man, and ive never once really wanted bottom surgery. Theres just an expectation in general for us to have any and all surgery. But if a trans person doesnt want surgery, then they dont have to have surgery. We all just want to be happy in our bodies, and wether that requires surgery or not, let us do what we want to our bodies

Definitely! There are so many people who don’t want bottom surgery, or even top surgery; it isn’t what defines us. If you are a man then you gave a mans body, no matter what body parts you have!!

Fun fact/tip: Clean your binders cause you don't want a nasty binder of sweat strapped against your chest. Not only is it itchy but you could get Fungal Infections on your torso and nipples and it's itchy and can take a damn while to get rid of - survivor of itchy nipples and armpits

Yes definitely! Please wash them regularly!!

I've always been kind of worried to ask this because I don't know if I'll get hate or not, but I think this is a safe place to ask. I'm trans, on Testosterone, top surgery coming soon, but sometimes I like to feel "pretty" y'know? Like I'll let my sisters put makeup on me and stuff and I'm okay with it. I know I'm a guy, not non-binary, nor fluid; totally 100% male, but feminine things are okay with me...? Is it possible to be a Trans Drag Queen? What am I

Hey! There is nothing wrong with liking “feminine” things, there are so many guys out there, trans and cis, that present feminine. It doesn’t make you any less of a guy for liking things like that! I know I don’t like leaving the house without makeup on! And you can be a trans dragqueen. Drag is a form of art, not just men dressed as women. Lady Gaga is one of the best drag queens, it’s just a way for people to express themselves and it’s compleatly okay for trans guys to do drag!

There's a girl at my school who at the beginning of the year was talking about how "trans guys are so much hotter than real guys!!" And making me kinda uncomfortable in the locker room. but by the end of the year she was talking about one of my friends (in front of me and two other trans guys) and ranting about how you can't be a guy if you don't have a dick. When I called her out she looked at all of us and said "yeah. No I know!" And kept ranting. Tbh that still pisses me off a lot

I don’t blame you for being pissed off, it’s really horrible and transphobic to say things like that. You could try talking to a teacher about it and seeing if they can help you out, they may be able to have a word with her about it and make her stop saying things like that. It sucks that there are people like that out there, but there are more supportive people out there than unsupportive, just got to weed out the bad ones. I’m sure you won’t have to listen to her views for much longer, no matter what she says you are valid!
