Idk, I might stop thinking about straight girls if you're rough enough.
Ooh rank 2, dayum gj girl!
heh, I was joking about the cheeto dust but we've taken it upon ourselves to vote cheetos out of our LANs just because it gets everywhere. We are really serious about being clean and stuff so no ones rigs get messed up.
Glad you pwned some noobs though
OH did you ever watch Pure Pwnage? I think that's what started my love for Canadian accents even though Jeremy's is like... such a caricature.
Yes it is. Glenn died and Aaron is secretly bisexual and getting the feelings for Maggie. Also, Maggie is prego.
>Real shame that it sort of lost its spark so fast...
Aw yiss, I remember downloading it through some cnc forums lol
I actually went to one of the screenings and met Doug, he is the shyest guy ever like SO NICE, it's like let's out all the crazy when he plays FPS Doug it's amazing.
Like.. Ugh, I felt bad when they lost their friend and stopped the internet series, like.. the tv show wasn't bad but it just wasn't the same.
oh elanna ilu for being into PP
5ever mai waifu
this was my captcha....
is...is that who I think it is in the middle?
nonono no ageplay just make me feel loved and keep me safe that's all
I hate ageplay I think it's super gross (no offense to anyone who likes it)
I'm glad you understand x.x
of course it's /pol/
it still makes me upset though but I guess that means it's working
tfw you will never stroke Elanna's hair while she wrecks noobs on Halo.
Kinda wish lgbt dropped the T just out of spite, freakin gays have no loyalty, theyve gotten their piece with gay marriage and are satisfied with not giving a fuck any more it seems
t should drop lgb. Why is t grouped with sexualities when its not a sexuality thing? We want different things to them, being paired with them means they fight for lgbt rights then drop t second they can in exchange for lgb rights.
Basically just something they have in negotiations that they can drop.
omg, it's morning I have coffee but no timbits
no timbits to share with elanna
WHY COULDN'T I HAVE BEEN BORN IN CANADA!?!?!?
but yeah, totally one day, we'll share bits and bites and cuddles and kinky stuff ; 3;
yeah I never got that, I wonder if it would have all been better if it was just GSM so people couldn't bitch about letters.
yeah but the current push started from a pol thread hating on both gays and trannies apparently
hey I'm gay too, there are lots of loud self-hating lgbt people in general that think if they can just throw enough people under the bus then they'll push all of societies hate off of themselves and show they're one of "the good ones" but it's not a majority
I wish i lived somewhere where it's always dark
fuck all these shitty doubts. Why can't things be simple?
I just want to know what to do.
Remember that you're not looking for physical effects with only a month. But for a lot of us the anxiety and uncertainty went away when the pills were popped.
Basically the only way to know for sure when you're questioning is to give a try. You could even not have more than a month of pills so you're forced to re-evaluate.
Thanks so much for the advice. I hope this helps, i'm spending so much time worrying about this.
nothing but doubt and worry about shit and anxiety about how I'll look and transitioning etc.
>so far on HRT
only thing I worry about is ways to pass. Now I worry about frivolous things (my weight, smelling good, etc.) and my dysphoria is going down
just do it mang. I'm even on a low dose and I'm feeling pretty good and cannot wait to get my dosage increased
>tfw will never get to stroke elanna's hair
>get out of shower
>look in mirror
>get delusional as fuck and think I could pass
>think face looks feminine
>get sad because you know you're being delusional
>go back to escapism
You should enjoy it while it lasts desu. Feels great.
Well I am taking everyone's advice and going to some job agencies tomorrow. I am going out later to get some mens interview clothes and some clear hair bands and a ace bandage to bind my tittys. If a job requires to know current medication do I tell them I am on hrt? If I have my hair done super clean with a small pony tail in the back it would be okay right? I'm afraid now with how curvy I am that I will end up looking like a dyke in a suit.
>driving home from wedding yesterday
>tell friend that you can't wait to get out of the binder you've been wearing all weekend
>he asks what a binder is
>a top that keeps the boobs from being too obvious
>he tells me it's probably going to feel great getting out of that corset too
>tfw you aren't wearing a corset
It only lasts for a short while though and I know everything I see isn't true so why bother?
I am 100% hon.
>I know you won't, but at least consider girl mode.
I am not legally female, my name isn't changed, and I have facial hair still. All that takes money to do so I need some job to save up for electrolysis and court stuff, then by maybe May 2016 I will be all ready to move and to start full time but as I am now I just can't, no employer wants to hassle with a trans person mid transition.
Legal doesn't actually matter to most place, and you're probably protected in California. I'm concerned that you don't have any idea how to boy/faggot mode right and that will hurt you more than your pretty decent looking girlmode would.
Honestly you probably won't get hired anywhere decent looking like that, people here want to pretend you can do anything but its not true. Unless you go in girl mode don't expect much return from them.
>tfw everyone passes except you
>tfw people don't believe you're a hon
You're asking about putting hair that's not even at your jaw into a ponytail. That's not someone who knows how to man.
It's not about hating trans. It's about an andro girl being more acceptable than a faggy looking boy.
>tfw therapy was a huge success
I got 100% accepted by my pastor and loved and not judged at all and I feel a m a z I m g to not be in the closet about anything or being guilty! I didn't even get that pray away the trans thing either !
I have to be stuck guy mode till I can save up for electrolysis. Once the beard is gone then I can do girl mode but not till its all gone, I am being serious when I say I have the strongest facial hair here.

>calling about billing when I got HIV test

>"Oh, I see..."
>"Yeah they check for all that during your annual appointment and it's covered then any time outside of it is not covered by insurance"
>"Well I'm transgender so I don't actually get pap smears."
Something something something about checking with my doctor to see if I can get it covered any way. Outing myself to strangers has gotten easier.
Good morning ladies.
I'm sorry that sucks lol but hopefully they'll let your insurance cover it
>mfw captcha only ever has me match bags and jewelry and food now
>mfw captcha thinks I'm a grill
It weirds me out that non Americans use 4chan or know English. However I feel bad for you that you are stuck in a shitty country. Ever tried to seek asylum in Canada? They love brown people who immigrate.
Be that as it may I'm pretty sure the ladies where I work wouldn't be too happy about me using the women's room. If only Spiro didn't make me have to pee every hour, I'd be able to just not use the restrooms at work at all.
>Your country is USA
GEE I WONDER WHAT THE A IS
FUCKING MURRICA STRONG BITCH
joking aside, American to most Americans means people from the US, not North or South Americans, most of the time I hear North or South America to differentiate between the two but yeah.. lol
No, last time i tried to talk with my mom she beated me and told me if i want to start hormones i have to leave the house and disappear forever from the family.
South american mode: its impossible to earn enough money to live, eat and get hormones.
Shit city mode: get beaten everyday
>tfw you will never get gendered as a girl by captcha
Kayla is so cute lmao. She reminds me of pic related
>All your people are killed by your "police", or while still at preschool
That is such a fucking lie, only people who get in trouble with the police are people who are criminals. If you don't break the law or resist arrest the cops never fuck with you. I never once broke the speed limit so I have never been pulled over.
i used to help a friend out and he'd do sexual health lectures, one of which was 'Rimming: how to do it safely' or something. I've not actually done it yet butttt I know how to do it. I wouldn't want it done to me because it seems gross, having a tongue in my butt but what my mouth does is a different story
but you are the only one in the last few weeks that says there are from
south america city
and was I right in assuming you were the same one that was told by their parents to fuck off if they want to get on HRT?
I'm a spic too, I was just trying to help but I'll fuck off now sis.
I know who you are and you're not in Brazil, VZ or Colombia.
I'm also not basing my opinions of your country from tv, which I don't have, but on people who are actually there and have no reason to make things sound nicer, which is a hell of a lot better than letting depression color shit.
>When is your date?
That was like two months ago, I haven't actually been on a date since September-ish.
The last thing I did for money paid enough for a weekend trip to hang out with old friends on top of survival expenses. Things are okay but slow.
Right because the US in a state of bedlam and dystopian turmoil.
The only places you have to seriously worry about being shot are in shithole minority areas. School shootings happen but you dont see college kids lining up in droves to purchase bullet-proof vests and pistols.
no more political talk please
lets talk about bralettes, are they cute or not?
GRRRR FUCK why do my breasts look so full and look big but when i measure there is just 2" in difference? 6 fucking centimetres? in one FUCKING YEAR despite taking progesterone non-stop
i hate this. I don't want anything besides SRS and now i apparantly have to get breast augmentation fuck
there we go, that's the date I was thinking about. I was wondering if you got a date set for srs.
fug I feel dumb now, I was super confused, I need caffeine in me.
Oh that sucks though, that wait must be brutal, I can't imagine.
You don't get it. This isn't about crime related violence. This is about insanity that grips the American public and manifests itself in explosions of violence that defy rational explanation.
A year just isn't enough time. Are you eating properly?
>33 inches is huge
Okay, it's not small but it's definitely well within cis female ranges. And one year on e is not much, five months on prog either, and for a lot of trans women srs causes growth bursts.
It's annoying as fuck and I really wish my old way of handling it (yoga, pot and replaying torment) worked.
I havent tried seeking asylum yet. My country is pretty developed about lgbt bullshit, fags can marry and trannies can go in the streets and dont get lynched, unless you arent in the 10% wealthier of the country and your parents support you and youre still young, im none of them.
>tfw actually got some
HOW WAS THE WEEKEND MTFG
I heard that prog should be taken 2-3 years after E, as it "finalizes" the growth, and that taking it straight away stunts the growth.
This is all mostly transmyth though as some studies say its kinda pointless.
Progesterone is very important in other things though and should be taken as taking AAs actually removes your natural prog.
that got me through a lot of shit but even now video games can't do anything. I haven't played a game in almost a year.
I was at goodwill getting clothes a couple of months ago and saw their book section and got a bunch of stuff. It's really helped me to just sit down, turn everything off and read. I might try yoga though. Well I hope getting your date and that your date isn't too far from now.
I'm out for work bye girls <3
I'm in the same position except I don't pass at all and I boymode on my fragile days and it actually makes me worse. I take breaks to cry in a toilet cubicle and I figured out the reason I always feel sick there is anxiety.
Retail is horrible.
vegetarian but yes, i eat properly, even with a surplus. Gained 8 kg within a year.
i still look ridiculous with my current setup of blobs and chest...
got some what?
trans myth i guess? I take part in 2 studies with a group that does research and they denied that. They didn't even recommended progesterone cause CPA already has gestagenic effects, but i insisted on it. Mostly for my mood
look at the nipples, already tanner 4 or whatever
Just read some of my old work that I've actually edited. http://caddycorbitt.tumblr.com/page/6
I can't share what I'm working on right now it's even more embarrassing than my tumblr.
yeah i know those bathroom feels. I did it a lot at my old job when customers sir'd me or my dysphoria/depression got the better of me. im sry about that. hugs for you
thankfully i have a cashier job and I actually genuinely like helping people, so that should keep me from being down all day
Fair dos anon, personally I don't know what to make of it, have taken 100mcg a day for 6 months and have noticed extra water retention and weight gain, not just in boobs tho, which makes me question if its needed.
Yeah and I'm going to run away for a while so I don't have to read any criticism while I'm working on something new.
Also do you really want to read 30 pages of unedited speed writing? Like, it just seems awful for everyone involved. Those I posted are super short.
>do you really want to read 30 pages of unedited speed writing?
I would read them carefully and afterwards grill you about the details, stylistic choices and whatever else strikes my fancy.

it's almost like being transgender was a part-time hobby you could choose to participate in whenever you wanted to, but of course we know that's not the case.....ha ha..........................ha.
>it's almost like being transgender was a part-time hobby you could choose to participate in whenever you wanted to
but what if i want to participate all the time, chemically, by taking HRT
It's just a story I heard in passing on /mu.
Besides hasn't Circe decided she's just normally gay now? And alison. People get on and off HRT all the time.
hey I have only been in transition for 9 months, I am trying my best
That girl in your pic had some angular facial features and I seem to remember some threads on /fa/ trying to decide if she was trans or not. I don't know if it's the same as the story you're thinking of.
>finally decide to cut my hair short
>salon is closed on mondays
>on the walk back some old dude tugs on my ponytail
> Tfw giant man hands
> Tfw wide af shoulders
> Tfw bulky fat arms
My face may pass but my body doesn't.
literally just the shittiest under 2 dollar shampoo and conditioners I can find. it's all about the method. I can type it out if you'd like but it will take a while to fully explain my routine and the reason behind it
The lengths some people will go for cosplay.
I think it is her unless someone matched the pictures on the wall to do a perfect copy of her room. I'm only commenting on the pictures not the stories, idk what /fa/ has said about the girl the other anon mentioned.
still like shit, I have to go to job agencies tomorrow, my mom is serious about kicking me out
a bit over 2 months ago
i'm scared and don't know what to do ._.;
>tfw people always think i'm rawr

My hair is naturally very stubbornly straight. the big secret is to wash your hair as infrequently as physically possible. If you think you can get away with not washing your hair, then don't. Once it gets to 3~4 days without a wash, either do a full clean (Shampoo on hair down to the ears, don't apply lower, the rinse will get it enough. Conditioner on hair below ears, hand brush through hair THOROUGHLY, depending on hair length this could be the longest part of your shower.) or just do a dab of conditioner on the top of the head and spread evenly. Your natural oils repair your hair MUCH better than any conditioner you can find. Don't use expensive products because they will actually end up fucking your hair up so that only other expensive products can fix it. After bleaching hair, condition for a HALF AN HOUR. Don't be afraid of dying your hair, it barely does any real damage. After hair drys (don't use a blow dryer unless you NEED to have dry hair) brush hair thoroughly but don't overbrush. PAT dry with your towel, DONT RUB.
I generally don't care about my weight but my current job will force me to lose some eventually.
Shit, and I have been using the Wen hair care system for $80 bucks and its shit

This is very good advice and exactly what I do.
Even cis girls don't know how to take care of their hair, I told my cousin this like... a few months ago and her shit hair is beautiful now.
Good looking out sis.
I cannot answer this accurately, as I am not Kayla.

I wish I could but I would just be a man without a penis.
But one day I wish to pass and have a boyfriend.
Bfs are lame.
I got me a lesbian nurse :D
It's a cute name but are you ready to live with the facts it sounds exactly like this pokemon's name ?
>mfw 13 hour sleep
i feel so comfy but i have this stupid kink on the right side of my neck that i can't get to go away.
how are you doing today mtfg?
>Implying being beautiful on the outside and ugly on the inside is anything but A-tier.
Why not beautiful on the outside and on the inside?
I'm too manly to pass.
Literally more masculine than my own father and i've been on HRT for two years.
Wanting to cancel a first date because I'm not really even into the guy. Maybe he's different in real life.
I don't know. I'm not going to cancel.
Hot dad who disappeared is texting me every day now for the last four days and I'm still pissed about the two week radio silence but it looks like we're making solid plans again to get together and I'm excited about it.
Fingers crossed for both I guess. How'd the movies go with that guy?
>aunt comes over
>im eating chocolate, chicken legs, pizza bites, and peanut butter cookies
she said I eat like a pregnant girl
lmao wait what
prob not true
even if he is you can still have a good time so i wouldn't be too worried. also that's a definite redflag for hot dad lol. maybe he has a good excuse tho?
yesterday's date was fun! he's like 7/10 but i really like his personality. he's very broad and burly but a genuinely nice guy. very sweet. went to get coffee then dinner then more coffee then movie. i didn't think he liked me much as more than a friend since h didn't make any kind of move the whole time? but at the end of the night he insisted on walking me to my door and then we made out a little bit. it was very qt and formal. i'm enjoying getting to know him.
>tfw was a t-starved manlet
>tfw passing pre and post hrt
>tfw gonna drop 40k on dr spiegel ffs anyway
>tfw teleporting to the finish-line in one year
Definite red flag. His excuse was he needed time to think and was "really busy with work" or some other bullshit.
>at the end of the night he insisted on walking me to my door and then we made out a little bit
This is adorable.
>His excuse was he needed time to think
that's a good enough excuse on it's own, people process things differently. You know this already... don't get bitter because he had to take some time and understand his own feelings.
I only say bitter because of "or some other bullshit." it just sounds like you think he's lying, so just let him go if the relationship is already starting off badly unless you just want dick.
I mean for you to google if people have had something they ordered stopped by customs from a site you'd be ordering from.
Let's skip this hypothetical bullshit, I'm not holding your hand with this anymore.
like 95% of girls pass after they've been on hrt for a few years so the odds are in your favorr
lol yaaa...well he's still hot so i guess it is what it is? as long as you don't develop feelings. how's the date guy?
preparation h and courage
if a guy just vanishes for weeks one of two things happened
1) he was seeing someone else he actually cares about and that fell through
2) he doesn't care much about you and wasn't seeing anyone.
trust me i do it to men all of the time. it's not even on purpose really. it just sort of happens with dating.
>like 95% of girls pass after they've been on hrt for a few years so the odds are in your favorr
I've been on HRT for two years and can't pass no matter what.
