nice summary, but i think there is a further distinction - transvestites and transgenders. I'm a cd, but I don't really do the make up. So, I don't think of myself as a transvestite, or tranny. I don't venture out of my house dressed up. To me, the ones that do are transvestites, but not necessarily transgenders. Just my 2 glamourous cents.
>>1076if you are trying to be glamorous "tranny" is about the least glamorous word you could use. hth
"Trans" is not an exclusive reference to transsexual. "Trans" can refer to any gender noncomformity which includes genderqueer, gender-bending, gender-fkked, dyke, boi, Lady boy, glam boy, tomboy, and a host of other gender expressions and gender identities. Not trans people are seeking HRT or sex change.
Also transgender is an adjective not a noun. It is incorrect to say "transgenders". Please use "transgender people" instead.

I'm not overly keen on that definition of "trap".
I know it's the common usage, so I should probably give this up, but I think a trap is attempting to trick people (entrap them, if you will), and I'm not sure undergoing a biological transformation consitutes a trick.
There's no "oh god you're actually a man" if it's only something they used to be.
It doesn't matter what you're keen on. It's a term used by people who aren't from 1905 to identify a CD/TS who passes so well that you would be unable to know the truth without being told.
If you aren't keen on memes, or are offended by this term, you should probably stop using the Internet and move to Mormon country.
Also, trap is mostly related to cross dressers, so no, being a male isn't something they "used to be," it's what they are. Some may actually transition and maybe even become more of a trap, but at that point, you'd call them what they are - trans.
I wasn't sure where to post this.
I see you have separate boards for traps and transsexuals. I also noticed other places, too, have separate sections for these two. I thought a trap was simply a very passable trans girl.
Can someone explain the difference to me?
Thanks and sorry if I'm in the wrong place.
Not the wrong place, but this board is essentially archived since there's a "tips" board on TranCHAN. Anyway, the difference is that a trans person is transitioning, or plans to. A trap is a person who passes for the opposite sex. It was originally used for people who were just amazing cross dressers (Line Trap, etc), but easily applies to trans people who actually pass.
You could claim that "trap" is rude to trans people, or specifically to people who aren't passable. The reality is that humans care about looks first, and personality later—especially when it comes to nudity/porn. Also, this is the Internet, and people who don't want their feelings hurt can cancel their Internet service and read some social justice pamphlets :p
I'll throw my craigslist email out there: firstname.lastname@example.org from Ontario. I'm sure some of the people from the last thread(s) stopped using theirs. Let's get this one to 1000!

Hi y'all. I've decided to tell my mum about being trans. Going well so far but I am terrified about the prospect of telling my dad and people finding out at college. I've been to see a psych but she is telling me that I have to wait 18 weeks because anything else can happen - she doesn't even know much about any of my issues and they are refusing to prescribe t-blockers.
I'm 5'9", weigh about 60kg but have quite a bit of muscle on my back, arms and thighs. What can I do in the meantime while I wait it out? If I don't make some form of progress i'm scared that I might take my own life. ._.
Hello, I've been hearing that tea tree oil is great for use in hair and skin. I hear you should dilute it with other oils or your shampoo/conditioner. Do any of you have any experience with tea tree oil? If you do I'd appreciate any advice you could give me.
Thanks a bunch

>>1301Advice: don't. For the love of god
Search for "Dorian Thorn" on Google.
You are my only hope.
I've been searching off and on for a few years for a certain trap. She was posted a few time on the 4th channel a few years ago (2007-ish), but no nudes that I'm aware of. I foolishly never saved any photos or remembered her name. What I do remember is her appearance:
>black hair worn straight or in ponytails>olive skin (may be Hispanic)>very passable
>photos were taken in front of a mirror or by her webcam>had some sort of anime posters on her bedroom wall>her name was something Japanese starting with a "k">took photos of herself and another (biologically) girl >as of 2008-09, was only one of few results on YouTube if you searched "mtf transition hrt"
Thanks in advance dudes.
I like big butts, and I cannot lie. Unfortunately life has left me with a dissapointly flat one.
Exercise of some form is clearly the answer, but I'm concerned. My legs, and thighs in particular are already close to too muscular and masculine as they are.
Is there anything I can do to improve the booty, to work those glutes, that won't add more nasty bulk to to my pins?
Have you tried pooping?
Hey, sorry if I've posted this in the wrong area. (should probably have posted on yahoo Q's but I thought I'd get a better response here)
I masturbate over CD/trap/shemale porn. The whole thing turns me on incredibly. But, when I cum my mind suddenly flips and I think of real girls and the idea of what I did isn't appealing to me.
I should probably add that I dress up too, and the same thing happens, but this time it's worse because I'm dressed up and have to get undressed. The whole time thinking, "Maaan, why did I do that..?"
It's like I'm suffering from some kind of dissociative identity disorder.
I think what I'm asking is: What does this make me? Does anyone else have this? I don't think I'm gay because girls turn me on also. So am I bisexual?
That makes you a human with a libido!
Welcome to the club, you will either learn to appreciate the feeling or learn to control your urges, your choice!
i was like that for years and now even after i cum i think that traps are the ideal woman. its so goddamn hot. im with a cis female though and i would not want anyone different, she's perfect. I do think "damn, i wish she had a dick..." sometimes though.
So i've been on MtF hormones for about two weeks (actually, 12 days), and was curious about when other MtF individuals have started noticing any effects, whether they be physical or mental.
I'm currently taking 50mg spironolactone and 2mg estradiol orally once daily.
I'm assuming I'm experiencing mild (mental) placebo effects rather than anything chemically induced at this stage, but i'd like to know about other people's experiences at their outset.
Also, is there a generalized chart showing normal dosage ranges? I assume I'm still on the low side of both drugs, and I'd like to see what a normal range ends up becoming.
has a good chart on anti-androgen and estrogen dosages
Hey anons. There's a specific, sticky situation here and I need advice.
I'll try to keep storytime short. I've crossdressed for a long time, eventually came out to parents. To make a long story short, they disapprove. They are paying for my college fund, and have made it clear they will revoke that fund if I go full transgender on them. Not wanting to alienate them, I closeted myself. Fast-forward some years and I am going to college as an adult. That college fund is still being paid for by them and I am still in the closet (They don't suspect anything, I think).
I will finally have some control over my life, and I need a strategy for how to utilize it.
For the first two years of college I will be living in the dorms. Additionally, my funds will be choked. I will not be able to afford gender therapy ($100 an hour is ridiculous) and hormones from a legal seller. On top of that, I'm not confident I'd be able to get them without my parents knowing.
I am totally alright with illegal means of getting hormones, but don't know how. I know I can order them from inhouse pharmacy, but don't know if a PO box would be available and how I would hide it from my parents. Some advice on how to obtain hormones would be greatly appreciated. Also, the cost of these things.
Additionally, I don't know how life would be like in the college as a transitioning male. I obviously get a random roomate in a cramped dorm, making crossdress time undependable. I'm alright with taking hormones without transition but I want to do girl things. Do most colleges have groups of transgender students that are ok with some anonymity? Also, if you live in close quarters with someone who may or may not approve of your crossdressing habits, where do you go or what do you do to get time to yourself for these things.
tl;dr:How to get hormones secretly? How much does that cost? How to crossdress with a roommate who doesn't approve? How to meet fellow crossdressers with anonymity?
I would try to find a roommate that approves. My college turned my apartment into the "these people are kinda difficult and weird to live with" apartment which wasn't so bad, we had a mix of characters. I ended up sharing rooms with the other trans girl in school. She was kinda weird though but w/e.
I has to agree that you should live with people who are accepting. HOWEVER There are many sites that sell medicines that would require a RX if you went to your local pharmacy. Also, have you looked into general delivery?

This place seems sadly devoid of FTMs.
So there's no one to commisserate with about my phallo woes. BRB, crying all unmanly-like.
I know that feel... ;_;
I just wanted to ask this question here,as this community seems pretty familiar with this sort of thing. About a year ago i started dressing up in panties and stuff,putting stuff up my ass and all that. I really felt that i envy girls and wanted to look more feminine. After informing myself of various options i decided full on-trap wasnt for me. i didnt have the guts for that. So i started taking small doses of this herbal stuff called phytosoya,i had my hands on some real estrogen a while ago but couldnt go through with that. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this Phytosoya stuff and if it actually works. I have seen some small results but nothing drastic. Should i change to something else or use higher doses?
The herbal crap doesn't ever work. If it does work, it does at the cost of your internal integrity. You will have kidney failure from that stuff. I suggest not taking it.
The estrogen on the other hand is much safer. Still not perfectly safe, but safer.
However, you won't get any real results without taking testosterone blockers. But you might not want to take those.
Taking estrogen without t-blockers will give you muted feminizing effects, which is what you seem to want. I suggest that. Get off the herbal stuff. It will kill you. :D
Hey all, I’m experiencing some internal gender identity issues that’s causing me what I could only describe as “asynchronous” depression, frequently coupled with spontaneous suicidal thoughts and tendencies – I quite often contemplate this as a solution to the problem (but none of these are incurred consciously – they all manifest autonomously.) Ergo, this can often impede my ability to engage in something “productive,” and I believe it may be incurring hypersomnia – I sleep a lot (and most often less when I’m content/happy,) and most often require at least 12 hours of sleep.
The problem is the absence of a female body – I suppose I would be comfortable in being identified as a transsexual, should no harm be a consequence of it (that is, no adverse affect on social interaction, employment or other environmental orientation.) However, I would indefinitely choose to be identified as female – for a transition (should it occur) to be completely stealth. I also feel that my sexual identity is of an issue, but that’s primarily of a subjective social concern (or “stigma,” if one were to describe it.)

I think I have hypersomnia too. slept for a good 14 hours last night. fml
>>1123I know this may seem a little odd to ask, but do you experience any side-effects from it? What about problems that are more prominent in your mind - are they more often close to being solved from excessive sleep? Personally, I find that it's useful for reducing the quantity of problems present consciously and for integrating instructions, but is consequent to a temporary cognitive decline.
Also, in case this thread disappears and others reply and I somehow forget about it, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone wishes to give advice.
Personally I think it's because when I'm dreaming there are less problems to deal with. My boyfriend recently died, so I've been sleeping more and more lately... but yeah, I usually just stay in bed because I can't face the awake world.
>>1124oh, and side effects? well i get way more tired during the day. this also makes me less willing to deal with my issues and perpetuates the depression.
>>1125I'm deeply sorry to hear about your loss... :( if you need to talk about anything as such, feel free to email/IM me via my messenger account (email@example.com). I suppose ditto for the latter part of your post - I often sleep a lot when I'm overwhelmed from various problems, sometimes even gender issues can lead me to sleep a lot. However, I've always assumed that this would only occur so that the unconscious mind could reduce the overall burden of the conscious mind, but I suppose it could also be a slight negative tendency that we develop.
>>1126I agree with you here -- excessive sleep also leaves me with excess tiredness and a lack of motivation.
Urgh, life can just be horrible at times.
>>1112a board of people that bairly know you is not going to get give you a sound answer to a choice that will change your life.
the default answers are
1) do what you think you need to do to feel safe and happy
2) find a qualified physiologist that specializes in transgendered issues to help you sort this out.
>>1128I was hoping to find someone who has been in a similar situation and to learn of which solutions they adopted to resolve this problem. I'll also search for a gender oriented psychologist - thanks.
For the majority of the time, I feel that I need to transition; however, there are times in which I do identify as male, and as mentioned, there are also other times when I identify as female.
However, the problem still causes depression and suicidal thoughts if I become aware of it; there is the exception that if I'm completely unaware of it, and wholly indulged in something, then I'm content with the way I am.
Likewise, I'm unsure of whether an underlying gender issue - whether the male self was superficially developed atop an underlying female self - gave rise to a near constant depressive state that had appeared shortly after I started puberty (i.e. whether I subconsciously experience discomfort, thereby resulting in depressive feelings (but there have other things that have made me feel down too, mostly oriented with the lack of know-how in getting a girlfriend).)
I greatly appreciate all advice given from both you and others in this thread, and anyone else who contributes, and wish you all great luck in whatever you choose to endeavor in life!
this is too frighteningly similiar to how i feel a good amount of the time, i almost (quite literally) gave hard thought to whether i posted this blackout drunk, which ive been known to do on tranchan from time to time, but with one look at the syntax and articulated, well-thought-out narration, i doubt it was me, but almost every feeling and thought you mentioned, ive been there, youve pulled the core elements of my issues and worded them in a way that i cant quite manage to verbalized in psychotherapymy only advice: find a therapist, and like everyone else says, find your happiness, fuck everyone else.on paper it sounds lovely, its a bit harder to enact such a quote when shit gets real, but its a great motto to hold in your mind at all times, ive been coming out slowly, and i mean slowlyI first began looking more feminine, body/shaving wiselonger hair, body-feminization exercisesi then forcibly changed my outward personality to a more comfortable bubbly persona, which when i convey myself through it, feels not only less awkward, but also liberating like an "i dont give a fuck attitude" it really controls the conversation/environment, confidence that is (think chris crocker (although now hes not a tranny, but now returned to being a gay man(but he never said he was trans, and he always identified as being effeminate gay man)))anywho...find a supportive group of people, open-minded, accepting people
Body feminization exercises?
So, I've always been really overweight. I don't mean just like, a little, really fucking fat. Then I started weight-lifting for fitness, and now I'm like nearly 400 pounds, can benchpress 800 or more... depends on how many plates the gym has.
And I want to try trapping.
Should I like, just not even bother? I don't know how I could go from my body now down to the kind of petite, slender female body I'm thinking of. Best I think I can do is like, freaky body-builder lady.
I don't know my exact body fat percentage ratio, but I think it's something like 56% fat the last time I got checked at the gym, and I'm a little more toned now. So if you do the math, that's like 224 pounds of muscle...
How in the hell do I deal with that much muscle, and without killing myself? I mean, I've never even began to think about fitness in a way like this... I've tried thinking of jogging, but that would just make my legs get ultra ripped and nasty looking. Not the soft, subtle thighs I'd want, and I'd have to diet forever for that kind of muscle to waste. Toning would take forever, and I'd only really managed to get like, down to a normal man's physique, not a woman's.
I don't know, I feel like if Lou Ferrigno let himself go and then decided he wanted to trap. Completely hopeless...
So I don't know, is it like, just pessimisms or do I really even have a shot dropping down to like, a 150 pound petite trap?
Same thing I say to other crossdressers: Somewhere on the planet, there's a woman with the exact same body-type as you; start from there, and be realistic.
I preset to thy Jesslyn on Youtube: /watch?v=MCEjCHb_-Qg
It also depends on what you think is sexy. Personally I love bigger traps as well as small ones. Take Michelle Austin for example
