Arielle saying that we can’t “live in the future” really pissed me off. Being able to envision my future is the only thing that keeps me alive.
That was definitely one of the things that frustrated me the most. Being able to create a transition timeline…
I know, I know, you guys. I should shut up about this. but it just keeps getting worse.
Look at the main page of the advocate UNDER WOMEN.
so Arielle, a supposed trans ally, likened the process of transitioning to disfiguring ones body………
Why is someone with such little knowledge of the trans community taking the role of educator to the masses?!
please stop, you’re really not helping anyone
Oh jeez, really? What a trainwreck of an “ally”
jfc i don’t understand how she thinks she’s doing good by saying this shit.
Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor."Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender
holy shit fuck this guy
i was hoping that it was just a translation problem?

Lots of pre-T guys who plan on transitioning with T or who are on T worry about balding. It’s hard to find trans guys talk publicly about their hair thinning or balding, because a lot of guys who are that far into their transition are stealth, might not want to talk about it, or they don’t have a problem with going bald or aren’t experiencing hair loss.
This guy mentions that for trans guys, there’s a link between beauty (self confidence about the way we look) and going on T. He’s pretty much implying that going on T makes us feel better about the way we look, but if we’re losing our hair, that can be a huge blow to our self esteem, whether we are cis or trans.
He mentions that he considered going off T, which some guys choose to, since at a certain point in their transition they are only maintaining changes they have already got and won’t really get new changes besides regular male things like changes in fat redistribution or hair loss.
He has ended up taking medication. Anyway, you can watch the video to see more.
