TW: Bad politics - election where i'm from gone terrible
  • I feel ya. If you ever need a support group DM me.

  • New To Being Trans W/ A Few Questions
  • Even if you don't have a deep voice pre T, vocal training will still be of great help. There are a lot of vocal habits and innotations that people read as male or female. Just having a deep voice will not make you sound like a man or masculine.

  • The Five Stages Of T Voice Changes

    I found this to be helpful. I've been having a lot of anxiety around my voice changing so some sort of info on what to expect made me feel better.

    New To Being Trans W/ A Few Questions
  • Hello, Zeke,

    Unfortunately I haven't had top surgery yet due to monetary reasons so I can't give you much anecdotal evidence, but there is another post on this community about silicone gel being effective.

    I also recommend trying voice training and figuring out your vocal range. There's a couple of videos on YouTube that really helped me out. I can get you those resources if you'd like.

    I'm glad you chose to post on this community. Feel free to ask all the questions in the world.

    How's your week been?
  • My week was annoying. The WiFi wasn't working for eight days and the AC quit working as well. Not a pleasant expierence. Been pretty bored and aimless these days.

  • I want to get into voice training and have no baseline
  • There are some projects in the works by members of this community to make a comprehensive voice training resource. I'll ask around.

  • LGBTQ+ Pride Month events could be targets of foreign terrorists, security officials warn
  • I would be much more concerned about domestic terrorists than foreign terrorists at this point.

  • Hey Emma, hope ya find someone. You're a very cool person and it's been nice knowing you online. Being isolated sucks.

  • Who has been your biggest support during your transition?
  • My siblings have been pretty supportive from day one. I appreciate them. A good friend of mine is a trans man and it's been nice to have someone who understands what I'm going through.

    How do I convince my friend to not join the Navy?

    Not sure if this is the right community to post this, but I'll give it a shot.

    One of my very good friends is planning on going into the Navy in about a year. He's generally a moderate left leaning kinda guy, but is trans. He comes from a navy family which is part of the reason he decided to go in the first place. He's going into mechanics and stuff and not combat which is slightly better I guess, but it's very concerning to me that he's planning on joining especially because he's trans. I also feel that ethically, actively participating in that system is bad.

    How can I dissuade him from joining? I don't wanna go full force argument mode because it's ultimately his choice but I would like advice on how to softly nudge him away from it without affecting our friendship negatively. Thanks.

  • How's your week been?
  • These are the same people who would probably scoff at countries who do have almost complete separation of men and women (especially before marriage). Such a bullshit ideology they espouse.

    I must ask how that sounds good even on paper.

  • Thank you so much for your willingness to step up and help someone from our community in need.

  • Fashion Friday!
  • "I've heard for transfems that men tend to have down-turned eyes and that you want to draw your eyes a little higher (using eye-liner), so basically don't draw the eyeliner all the way to the end of the eye-lid and stop a little early to "lift" the eye. Just wondering if this is others' experiences as well or not - it's something I found useful before estrogen started to change my eye-shape."

  • Important Healthcare Information

    Hey y'all,

    This is specifically for people in the US healthcare system.

    If you are getting a test or procedure done, ask them what the cost is without insurance. It may end up being significantly cheaper.

    I had to go get a basic metabolic panel blood test today and they were going to charge me $350. When I asked what the cost was without insurance, it was $100. Mind you, I have good insurance. It's around $1500 a month.

    This has happened multiple other times with different people that I know. Just asking could save you a significant amount of money.

    Looking For More Mods (c/Trans)

    Questions for potential candidates:

    1. What is your vision for this community

    2. What time zone/country are you in

    3. Do you have mod experience with reddit or Lemmy

    4. What do you like about c/trans? What would you improve?

    5. Do you have experience with using bots on Lemmy and with the python language?

    Note: there are no right and wrong answers to these questions. The only hard requirement that we have to be a mod is that you have to be an active member of the community and have a history of that.

    Edit: The new mods have been selected. Thank you to everyone who applied.

    Lemmy's Transmasculine Problem

    Y'all, we have a problem.

    These are some of the results of a survey done on our community concerning gender identity:

    1.08% Binary Trans men (4).

    1.08% Transmasculine people (4).

    1.35% Cis women (5).

    That's right, there are more CIS WOMEN on a TRANS community than binary trans men or transmasculine people alone.

    We have a problem.

    This isn't just a Blahaj problem. Another queer instance did a similar survey and found only 3% of their users were trans and use he/him pronouns.

    Not having enough transmasc voices is going to be detrimental to our community. There are plenty of transmasc people on the internet. The problem is with Lemmy.

    So what are we gonna do about it?

    Behold, The Results Are IN

    For context, these are the results of a survey that I gave to the users of c/Trans.

    What are your thoughts?

    Goobert Breaks Into My House

    I tell this story to you as it really happened. I still cannot process the events that conspired.

    It was a chilly spring morning when Goobert first knocked on my door. Upon hearing a knock at my door, I quickly scrambled to hide my 100,000 terabytes of pirated Disney movies and Nintendo games.

    A second knock on the door. A second passed. The door swung open.

    "HELLO I AM GOOBERT" the mysterious visitor said.

    Before me stood a creature that I had never seen the likes of before. It was half-rat, half-peanut, and completely decked out in pirate attire.

    "Hi Goobert, can I get you a glass of sweet tea?" I asked.

    "YES I WOULD LIKE A GLASS OF SWEET TEA. I ALSO HATE RONALD REAGAN," Goobert declared.

    "Wow, I also hate Ronald Reagan, we must have much in common." I said, putting the kettle on the stove to boil.

    Goobert sat down at the kitchen table.

    "I must inquire, why are you in my house?" I asked.

    "I AM A PIRATE AND AM SEARCHING FOR NEW PIRATED MEDIA, SPECIFICALLY PIRATED DISNEY AND NINTENDO MEDIA. I ALSO AM LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO BUY ILLEGALLY MANUFACTURED MOONSHINE." Goobert replied.

    The kettle began to whistle.

    Are you an FTM or transmasculine individual?

    There's a space for people just like you. It's a good place to ask questions and get support from your fellow dudes and transmascs. We are few and far between on Lemmy, so having a place where we can congregate and have our own place is a rarity. I hope you'll consider joining.

    How does fat redistribution actually work on T?

    I have heard a lot of contradictory things on this subject. "It'll happen in six months" or "You have to lose weight and gain it back for it to happen in a reasonable amount of time"

    What's the truth about this? What's your experience with it?

    Behold...my new sidekick

    His name is Sir Gilbert Humphrey Hubert II. He said he'd help me pirate Nintendo games and Disney movies. He also wanted me to give him a tour of my moonshine distillery in the mountains.
