For a brief while there was a boom in art among transgender men, deceptions of wombs in the midst of destruction, eraser lines across chests and stomach and groins, collages that covered dysphoric bodies in flowers or syringes – scars or tattoos. Art that reclaimed our bodies and our right to change it, our right to hate the parts of us that hurt us, our right to love the bodies that rise from the ashes of our “self-mutilation,” and “female death,”.
That time was short, art was marked as violence towards women. How dare we mutilate the female body, how dare we degrade, demean, or demonize the sacred womb. Don’t you know there are people who love theirs? How dare you express your pain on paper while you are denied your hormones and your surgeries.
Of course, it wasn’t about art. It was about control. It always has been, the desire of cis men and yes – cis women, to control our bodies. It was not just the drawings, that was a facade – even to those who didn’t recognize it as such, those who thought they were doing good when they beat us down. It was about the way you see our surgeries as mutilation, the way you create a double standard – that cisgender women have the right to a hysterectomy but the transgender man does not even have the right to say he never wants a child to pass his hips, god forbid.
Shouts of, “There are some trans men who want to give birth,” and yes – I know, but this is not about them and it never has been, because you hate them too – you do not care about the medical mistreatment of the pregnant trans man and you question his male identity for carrying a child to term. It was never about that, it was about seeing trans men being angry and then centering yourself in the conversation that your were not invited too.

Trans men deserve to be able to speak about our experiences and oppression on our own terms, using our own language, without being told that we need to use different language from out-groups. We don't deserve to have our language policed when discussing our own experiences.

Binding for a long time CAN change the skin elasticity in your chest which CAN lead to certain top surgery methods becoming less recommended because some of them are partially reliant on skin elasticity for the best results. Surgeries like keyhole and periareolar do have better results once healed if you have good skin elasticity in your chest, but that is not the ONLY thing that determines if either of those surgeries would be a good fit for you (chest size is usually the biggest factor but even nipple size and placement can help determine what will have the best result). There are also pros and cons to every single type of top surgery and you can be completely eligible for one type but still opt for another because the results are the most preferable for you and the pros just outweigh any cons. When you begin the process of seeking out top surgery you will have a consultation where you and your surgeon will determine together which option is best for you.
I say this from experience because when I went to my consulation my chest WAS small enough to be eligible for keyhole, and my surgeon told me this and told me he could do keyhole for me if I wanted, but he personally thought double incision would yield better results because binding for nearly a decade had worn down the elasticity in my chest and with DI he was confident he would have a better time sculpting the chest. I have known other trans men who had similar experiences.
So, yeah, binding can change the skin‘s elasticity which can can indeed change your options for top surgery somewhat, but ANYONE fearmongering about binding and claiming that it will make you “ineligible“ for top surgery is completely full of shit and does not have your best interest at heart. There are totally health risks associated with binding, but if you are safe and thoughtful about it you will be okay. There are health risks associated with, like, ibuprofen. There is absolutely nothing wrong with educated “risk taking.”
The reality is there is very little research into medical transition. This means it IS good to be careful and to do research and pay attention to anecdotal experiences from fellow trans folk. It’s good to ask questions and keep in touch with trustworthy doctors or members of your community. But it also means that terrible people will use this as a vantage point to feed you fear-mongering anti-transition propaganda. The reality is that transitioning is not risk free but it is also not deadly. Know the facts but do not let anyone scare you away from being your happiest and most authentic self via bad faith transphobia.

Mutual Aid Needed - Help Myles Transition!
Hello! My name is Myles and I am a 24 year old transgender man who has just begun his transition this year. I am trying to raise money to help buy my hrt, voice training lessons, and to start putting money towards a consultation for top surgery. I am chronically ill and currently work two jobs and my partner works full time at one, and we still struggle to pay for everything, much less things like surgery. I have really been struggling with my chronic sciatica and mental illness, namely PTSD, and trying to navigate what my doctors think is autism--which goes to say that working is difficult and I have a lot of doctor appointments due to this.
Anything helps and genuinely means the world to me. Thank you for your help and even your consideration.
I also do sketch and writing commissions, and am happy to compensate anyone for their contributions whenever I can. Thank you all so very much!

hey, so uh,,, u siad ur into peaky blinders. if it's not too much of a hassle, could i request some alfie solomons × trans man reader? i dont have anything specific for it, aside from maybe if alfie could call the reader his jewel,,, sorry if that's weird
Alfie Solomons x Trans Male Reader
Notes: Of course, sorry for the long wait! I love this concept <3 I tried my best to keep this to the 1919-20s themes and context, however adding that pinch of modern beliefs and ideas. Tried to really use the gcse history in this one xx
Warnings: mentions of war, its a fluff!
You had known Alfie since you met him during the war. You had been in the medical branch,a seemingly fit decision as you studied medicine during your time at university. You met him in a field hospital, tending to him and practically saving his life. Ever since then you guys had been stuck together like glue. Despite the intimidating and viciousness Alfie surrounded himself as, he had made a promise to you. He promised that you’d both still stay in contact if the war ended.
Four years later ,when the war had ended, he still kept that promise and you both also admitted your feelings to each other, surprised that the other liked each other back. Alfie tried to persuade you not to go back to work because he believed he could support you both with his own work, which was true. You still wanted to pitch in and help in your own way.
It had been a long and uneventful evening waiting for Alfie to finish with his work related business. You wasn’t exactly aware what it was that he was doing but you just hoped he were safe. Occupying yourself with a book while you sat on the opulent, sleek sofa that faced the quaint fireplace. You were so immersed in the book itself, as well your own thoughts, you didn’t notice the sound of the door opening and the fumble of somebody entering inside. Tilting your head backwards when you felt firm yet gentle hands on either side of your shoulders, “Hello, love!” You beamed as a tender smile painted your face when you caught eyes with Alfie, he returned that smile. He leant down to leave a soft peck against your forehead before occupying himself on the sofa with you, immediately pulling you in to a cuddle. His muscular arms wrapping around you, “How have you been, my jewel?” His rich voice spoke in a hushed tone, the familiar pet name making you swoon for him over again. “I’ve been well, better now you’re back.” You hummed, “And yourself?” You closed eyes, relaxing in the moment as he played with your hair, stroking it ever so gently. “Hmm, same as you, wasn’t very enjoyable being away from you.” You could hear the sincerity in his voice making you well up with happiness, “Is that so?” The faint nod from the other confirming it. A calm silence fell over the both of you and you could feel his hand stop stroking your hair , instead resting upon the side of your head. The sounds of faint snores bringing a soft smile to your lips. It didn’t take much for you to join him in slumber, wrapped around the arms in your lover while the crackling and popping of the fireplace confirmed the feeling of serenity. Confirming the feeling of a blissful and tranquil evening.

hi! I’m not a Muslim but I have a weird question. this will probably come off as phobic or something but I really don’t mean it that way.
if a afab in a hijab transitions to male, do they not wear their hijab anymore?? I’m really sorry if this is a bad question to ask, I’ve just seen your blog around and I saw a snap story of a lady in a hijab doing her makeup and I thought about this question. I hoped you would have an answer. I’m really sorry. Please forgive me if this is phobic in anyway. This is a genuine question that google sucks ass at answering..
Hi! I am sorry I took so long to answer this. I had a few hate-asks that threw me off answering non-queer-muslim-culture-is asks, but this doesn't come off as transphobic at all. It's a good question.
It really depends on the person, so I'm not qualified to answer for everyone. I'm ftm (female to male) and I don't wear hijab, but I know plenty of ftm folks do wear hijab. If anyone else has any input, feel free to put it in the replies!
