Why haven't a group of trans people and/or allies come together to help transmen and women with the financial side of monitored, safe transitioning? It seems to me that the reason a lot of uninsured trans people (especially MTF) resort to self-meddling because of the high costs of seeing a qualified therapist. I feel like that shouldn't be a thing in 2016.
I know for FTM, there is a foundation for helping to cover the costs of top surgery (and maybe bottom surgery/hysto?). That's pretty cool, imo, but I think it'd be great for something more inclusive... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5707090 Why haven't you done it yourself? Be an activist. Fundraise. Wave the flag of social justice and get some shekels thrown to you. Or, just sit here and shitpost about your feels and how society's bad for not helping people with a thing like this.
>>5706983 Man I'm scared of aids... Last year I had sex with 8 guys bareback, 6 came inside me... Most from grindr.... What jack shit have I done... I always asked for condoms but the bastards... The bastards always complained.... Man I'm scared. I can't even get tested right now because my last unsafe contact was like one week ago. How long do I have to wait? I should have taken prep... Does it really prevents aids like birth control pills prevent pregnancies? Or it's not that effective?
Your survey is a little weak, but the discussion can certainly salvage it.
There are some people transitioning because it is more acceptable than being gender non-conforming in the way that they are, and there are some transitioning as an aid to the kind of gender non-conforming they prefer (think the guys on femgen for a readily-observed example).
There are people being scared off from transition by social pressures, yes, and there would be slightly more people transitioning, with many earlier, in a society that didn't place such a huge stigma on it. Homelessness is a heavy price to pay for being wrong about your parents', employer's, or landlord's reaction, and many trans youth have had to pay it.
Femgen FAQ: ▶What is a fem guy? A young, androgynous guy with soft features. Mostly gay, but not all. ▶Are fem guys trans? Some inevitably turn out trans. Some age into twunkhood and continue slutting it up on Grindr well past their mid twenties. ▶Can I be a fem guy? Often with enough effort, yes. Masculine bone structure, height, and aging make it hard. ▶Should I go on HRT? If you can deal with the tits and infertility, you'll look younger longer and you won't age like a man. ▶Is liking fem guys considered gay or straight? Gay.... Comment too long.

Question LGBT. I'm at Uni and I've had a lot of people tell me that gender is just a social construct and that it doesn't actually exist. I'm confused by this because if that is the case I don't understand how someone can be transgender if gender doesn't exist and there aren't actually any differences between men and women. Last week someone got pissed at me for using the word men because apparently they don't exist because there is no gender. Can someone please help me understand because I feel like I've been logically mind fucked... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5705706 Funfact: a lot of transgender people don't believe in gender being social construct. They see two genders and want to be the one opposite of what they were given. There's a reason why trutrans people shit all over androgynous folk.
