women binder

What if I told you guys that even as a trans guy, I don’t wear my binder during sex? That I sometimes skipped binding on hot days because I overheat easily and could literally die. That I am okay being topless in front of my close friends. AND HO GET READY FOR THE BIG ONE. That I still cosplay female characters even after coming out.

Does that make you uncomfortable? I’m sorry, but that’s my life.

Saying that trans guy has to be dysphoric 24/7 in order to be considered valid is just as bad as when cis people say that you have to try and pass or you have to get top/bottom surgery. Both are equally unwarranted and disgusting. It also once again gives into the sexism against ftm who constantly have to prove themselves because god forbid they do anything slightly feminine (like let’s say, pose sexily in women’s clothing, binder or not) and are suddenly thrown under the bus for “not being real men”.

Wanna know what gives me dysphoria? When you guys call me lazy because I chose to skip binding on a hot day. When you guys think it’s weird and “kinda gross” that I still will put on the female cosplays. When you guys tell me maybe I would pass more if I didn’t have colored hair, wore makeup, or constantly showed off my curves.

You don’t get to dictate our lives or how we feel. As for my fellow trans men who do struggle with dysphoria and don’t like seeing these kinds of behaviors those like me, YOU can surround yourself with the things YOU need to get by, just as I and other trans guys will do. Unfollow, block, ask for content to be tagged, have a discussion instead of a screaming contest, IT REALLY ISN’T THAT HARD.

But sure, just keep ruining someone’s life by threatening their career, misgendering them and sending them death threats that’s cool

#LibraryShelfieDay!!

Here are a few of the many shelves that hold books from the Lawrence D. and Betty Jeanne Longo Collection of Reproductive Biology, a collection of rare books, pamphlets, manuscripts, and reference works spanning the late 15th to the 20th century and related to women’s health, human reproduction, and the history of gynecology and obstetrics. Titles pictured here include Maladies de L'Utérus, Maladies dés Femmes, Hamilton on Female Complaints, Osborn’s Midwifery, Clinical Notes on Uterine Surgery, What a Young Girl Ought to Know, and Married and Single.

Find out more about the Longo Collection here and here.

Campaign-ending moves:
  • 2004: Candidate’s voice cracks in a funny way while celebrating his campaign’s momentum in primaries. Losing candidate in general kind of rich and stiff and out of touch.
  • 2008: Vice Presidential candidate says being able to see Russia from parts of Alaska means she has foreign policy experience.
  • 2012: Candidate is kind of rich and stiff and out of touch, clumsily refers to his collection of resumes submitted by women’s groups as “binders full of women.”
  • 2016: Nothing. Bragging about sexual assault? Calling for the assassination of your opponent? Claiming you’ll only accept the results of the election if you win? All totally fine apparently.

hi! i've been trying to improve my nb wardrobe (i'm dfab masc pre-t and only recently started having an income that supports me buying a few new pieces of clothing) and wondered if you or any of your followers had advice on tank tops? i like wearing tanks (to show off my tattoos obv) but it's hard to find styles that don't show a binder. i've tried gc2b's tank binders but i'm kinda fat and don't like how tight they are across the belly to wear on their own, tho i like them with a top ls shirt.

I wear this binder in black mainly, although I have just ordered this one in nude after a friend recommended it. 

On the right is me wearing a very unisex-style women’s tank. The binder definitely does peek out, especially at the lowest point of the neck hole. On the left is actually a men’s sleeveless t-shirt but because the shoulders are narrower than mine it looks very tank-like. This style doesn’t show the binder at all and definitely reads more masc. Hope this is helpful as you treat yourself to some new clothing! Anyone else have any good tank tips?
