morganasticramblings asked: Writing in again. I'm fluey right now and that may be screwing with my brain but I'm also feeling rather dissonant/dsyphoric, anyone have any advice on dealing with those feelings positively? :) Thanks. :)
Opening this up to followers- please send in suggestions, you can either send an ask here or to morganasticramblings directly. :)
It can definitely be difficult to handle dysphoria when something makes it worse- I hope someone can give you some helpful advice!
morganasticramblings asked: Hi. I'm a trans female androgyne. :) I was curious to get an idea of why other MAAB people have chosen not to pursue any kind of medical transition and how they plan to work with the bodies they have, as I'm at something of a crossroads with it myself. Any thoughts/advice from anyone? :)
I’m opening this up to followers! In case you haven’t seen the site, there are personal stories, some of them from MAAB people about why they’ve chosen not to transition and how they’re dealing with it. Those might be helpful.

Looking over your tumblr it’s clear that you have a strong interest and focus in the health and well being of trans men. In our experience trans men often have to bear the burden of educating many of their health care providers about pertinent (and often impertinent) transgender health issues themselves.
Today we at Ethica Press are launching Transforming Practice: Life Stories of Transgender Men that Change How Health Providers Work, the first book of it’s kind to demonstrate how health providers might better support those questioning or struggling with gender transition on the trans-masculine spectrum. We think this book is important to the Non-Op audience and we’d love it if you would share information about its release. The book is now available on our website and Amazon.com, and we’ll soon be launching a Kindle version.
A trans-ally, social worker and current Medical student, Marcus Greatheart was inspired to write the book after discovering how common it was to find discouraging and despair-filled accounts of gender transition among his trans male friends. In response, he interviewed satisfied, post-transition trans men about the factors and circumstances that contributed to their experiences with gender transition in order to understand what worked well and share it with those initiating or still in the transition process, whether they choose to operate or not.
If you’re interested in delving deeper into this topic with your audience we would love to assist you by providing additional press material, setting up one-on-one interviews with Marcus, or writing a guest post for your blog at your request.
PS…Please forward this email to coworkers, friends, family…anyone you think would be interested.
corpos-translucidos asked: Hey there! I'm the director of the documentary project Corpos Trans*Lúcidos (Trans*Lucid Bodies) that is made by self documentary videos previously posted online by trans* people. We are looking for people to contribute. If you have some time, please visit us and reblog our last post so we can get to most people as possible and make a great documentary? :) Thanks a lot!
(I don’t know these people and can’t vouch for the validity. Anyone who wants to contribute, please be safe and look into it first.)
Anonymous asked: Thanks for making your site and your blog~ Both me and a friend of mine are currently not in transitioning, and I don't plan too in the near future. Top surgery hopefully, but as for hormones, I doubt it for now. I've always really felt there was no real safe zone, because so many people are transitioning and expect you to do the same. if you don't, than it invalidates you. And I hate that, but thanks for existing too~
Anonymous asked: Taking Enpulse is increasing the size of my clit. I've been taking it about a month now, four a day at bedtime, but since I had a really small one to start with -- and stupid me didn't measure -- I'm not really sure what the growth is like. It's the most obvious during/right after sex. If I had to make a guess, before it's like a lima bean and when engorged it's like the size of a marble. I get it at GNC but you could probably find a better deal online.
Anonymous asked: Pumping. There are smaller pumps designed for clits.
purplegoesbothways asked: I've been having a hard time lately because I just got top surgery and my mind is playing tricks on me because of the major change, and making me feel like not having dangly bits means I will never be taken seriously, or be happy and myself. It's going away slowly I hope, but this and your independent sites were among the first I went to to help me deal with this. I'm going through your archives and it's making me feel good right now. Thank you for existing.
I’m glad it helped. :) I have a similar situation, because I’m so feminine and am never seen as anything other than female/prepubescent and would have to take T to change that, but I really don’t want to take T because of the permanent effects.
It’s never fun to feel like you have to change in ways you don’t want just to be seen as who you are.
