"Hey just to let you know that ftm means transgender not first time mum"
“Yeah i know, it’s for both :)”
Literally what the fuck kind of response is that????
FTM is also used in “mommy communities.” So it is actually for both….
this was really confusing to me when we were in the process of conceiving. I mean, I’m a ftm dad and every time i’d read FTM in the mommy communities my brain would get all tripped out. Id be like : THERE ARE OTHER FTM DADS!?! yeah: First time mom. :)
Trans Parents- how do you talk to your little people?
About where they came from/ were made?
I just found a guide, for adults, for ” what makes a baby ” childrens book.
All I can say is wow.

“It is revolutionary for any trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist.”

Laverne Cox is a goddess. Full stop.
It is beyond comprehension to me that anyone could look at Laverne and say anything but “Oh my god she’s gorgeous,” much less “That’s a man.” HOW??? WHY?????
This is not to imply that I don’t believe it happens, because people are HORRIBLE, of course it happens. I just don’t understand HOW. Are they even seeing the same person I’m seeing????
looking through old photos is really fucking weird.
anyway, tomorrow i will be one month on T. it’s pretty crazy to think about.
i haven’t noticed too many changes yet, which is what i expected. right now i’m on .5mg weekly, which is relatively low but i wanted to start at a low dose anyway.
Im on the same dose - and have been all 8 years. remember T is cumulative. every persons body requires more/less .
