Thanksgiving can be a hard day for us trans folk. A good chunk of us will spend the day being misgendered and dead named. My heart goes out to all of you forced to spend time with family that does not treat you right.
Stay strong. Everything will be OK 馃挄

Enby culture is people ostensibly being fine with you being enby but the moment you go on hormones they constantly ask if you're binary trans

we鈥檙e you ever nervous or scared before starting t? i鈥檓 pre-t and i see trans guys/transmascs online and i want so badly to go on t so i can look/sound like them but the act of actually starting hrt terrifies me, even though i know i鈥檒l most likely be way happier if i do it
I was nervous as hell about the permanence of it all but once I started I knew right away I was going to be on it for a long time. the changes were not super fast, it took a few weeks at first, and looking back I have 0 regrets about starting it young (16) . I hope you get the opportunity to pursue it

Today I was talking about t in public and this guy just comes up behind me, goes 鈥測ou鈥檙e trans too?鈥 and just pulls up his shirt, flashes his top surgery scars, and runs away.
And the funniest part is that I literally did the same thing the other day.
I saw someone with ace and aro rings and I just ran up to them, held up my hands, said 鈥淚 love your rings!鈥 and ran away.
Queer culture is going to to queer people, telling them you鈥檙e queer, and running away.

You鈥檙e never 鈥渢oo old鈥 to start your journey of gender affirming treatment. Everyone鈥檚 path is different and everyone鈥檚 needs are unique. At Plume, we avoid one-size-fits-all thinking and support people with diverse gender expressions, identities, and goals. If you are interested in gender-affirming hormone treatment (GAHT), you have a rainbow of options available to you.
The hormones you choose to take will alter your body, your moods, and (hopefully!) your sense of being more comfortable with yourself. The combination of medications is unique to you and your goals. Depending on your age, your gender expression, and your personal preferences, you might have a different dosage or prescription than other people you know. That鈥檚 fine鈥攊n some ways, GAHT is similar to other medications: what works for one person鈥檚 body may not be appropriate for another person鈥檚. At Plume, we focus on finding the right combination of care for you.

r/ftm about damage from binding, all posted within the past year.聽
Binding is not safe. I was only on testosterone for 3 months and was relatively unscathed, but I was binding for a year and a half, 6-8 hours a day (what is considered 鈥渟afe binding practice鈥). and that also may not sound like a lot of time, but I cannot wear bras anymore, over 2 years after I stopped binding. not even wireless, soft bralettes because if i wear one my ribs hurt and i have shooting pains when I breathe.聽
Safe binding is an oxymoron.

The idea that stopping testosterone (or any HRT) is "detransitioning" kinda contributes to the idea that the only way to be trans or to transition is to seek medical change, don't you think?

What to expect from Testosterone from just starting to 2 1/2 years
hi friends, i just hit my 2 and a half year mark on T, and i鈥檓 going to summarize all the changes in chronological order! this is gonna be long so buckle up
1 month
- SWEAT. so much sweat. the middle of winter? sweat. summer? EVEN MORE sweat. it was the first thing that happened to me, and i felt gross until i got used to it. weirdly enough, the strong body odor wouldn鈥檛 really come until 3 months, but by that time, i was already wearing a lot of deodorant to help with the sweat so i didn鈥檛 stink. i still have an almost permanently shiny face tho
- oils. your body starts to get oily and combined with the sweat you鈥檙e just glistening and you suddenly understand what greasy pizza feels like. you鈥檙e an oily snack.
- acne. because of the sweat and oils, your pores start to get clogged and acne begins to form. it鈥檚 also natural to get more persistent acne even if you have a skin care routine. remember, you鈥檙e essentially a teenage boy going through puberty. you鈥檙e gonna get acne and it鈥檚 gonna last for a few years. i still have persistent acne
- hunger. i was so fucking hungry for the first few months on t, starting right after i started t. try to keep eating healthy but it鈥檚 good to satisfy that hunger because your body is using a lot of energy shifting and also you鈥檙e literally going through puberty and that鈥檚 when cis guys eat like crazy
3 months
- leg hair thickens and darkens. it鈥檚 so fun!!! my leg hair also got a lot longer even tho i stopped shaving a while before i started T. if you already have thick hair/have family with arm hair, it won鈥檛 be just your legs. i just am like my moms side of the family and they don鈥檛 have a lot of leg hair to begin with let alone arm hair so i had to start from scratch
- start of bottom growth. at this point, your clitoris is going to start to grow. this is because when a baby is in the womb, they begin growing as female, giving the babies nipples and female genitalia. a wave of progesterone happens at a point and at this point, the baby develops in a way that will make them be assigned either male or female at birth. if the baby grows to be amab, testosterone amount grows in the body and the clitoris the baby has gets bigger and the urethra elongates and goes through the now penis, and the vagina closes and the labias majora and minora seal to create the ballsack (which is why there鈥檚 a seam on the ballsack) and testicles form in the ballsack. that鈥檚 essentially what t is trying to do to you. it鈥檚 recognizing the increased testosterone and is trying to grow the penis that would have been grown in fetal development. this normally hurts like a burning sensation, because the clitoris is a bunch of nerves and those nerve endings growing and shifting is painful. just get an ice pack or a heating pad (whatever helps you specifically) and put it between your legs.
- start of voice drop. it won鈥檛 be a drastic change, but you may start having voice cracks and your voice may become more ambiguous sounding. it will continue to deepen the longer you鈥檙e on t, and it normally hits its peak around 2 years. mine is still getting deeper, but it鈥檚 much less drastic than the 1 year to 2 year range
- potential facial hair growth
- menstruation should be stopped by now if not already stopped by norethindrone
6 month
- by this point you鈥檙e probably feeling a rollercoaster of emotions. again, it鈥檚 puberty. you鈥檙e feeling teen angst. you may feel gross. you may feel more irritable. you won鈥檛 cry as easily to the point when it鈥檚 frustrating when you鈥檙e really worked up and just CANT cry it out. you get used to it, don鈥檛 worry
- facial hair continues to grow. mostly starts of as baby fuzz but will thicken up over time. i started getting facial hair on my side burns first, then on my chin and neck. even at 2 1/2 years, my beard isn鈥檛 fully formed, it鈥檚 patchy and needs some more time but it started here
- face structure begins to change from softer to more angular
- fat redistribution. fat moves away from the hips and butt to the stomach and legs. potential weight gain as it shifts
- muscle mass changes. muscles start to appear bulkier without working out. will affect weight as muscle is heavier than fat
- continuing and increase in what i mentioned before
- here鈥檚 where my voice went from slightly getting lower to a full on drop
1 year
- upper body is settling into either a rectangular shape or a triangle shape, depending on what you鈥檙e starting with. even if you get to a rectangle shape here, you may reach a triangle later on (like i did).
- this is also the point where top surgeons start accepting referrals for the procedure. personally, my doctor did 6 months on T, but most doctors like 6months to a year on T
- leg muscles settle into place, as it can be a bit irregular up until this point (i had thick thighs and small calves up until this point)
2 years
- slow steady muscle building and bulking up. i went from being drowned in my new Philadelphia Flyers jersey i got for christmas last year to completely filling it out a year later. slow and steady wins the race my friends
- if your acne hasn鈥檛 gotten better with a skin care routine, or is becoming cystic, i suggest seeing a dermatologist. they can give you antibiotics and creams
- intense hunger starts to die down, as well as mood irregularities
- voice should be pretty deep at this point, and your body has gotten used to the thickened vocal chords so it doesn鈥檛 strain your body anymore to talk in a deep voice, it comes naturally. if you鈥檙e still having trouble at this point, consider doing vocal training
鈥斺斺斺斺
and that鈥檚 all i got folks, i may update this post when i hit 3 years to add what happened between the second and third year but i hope this helps!

Please be careful about how you talk about puberty blockers in relation to how cis kids who are going through early puberty get them but trans kids don't.
Some of these cis kids are intersex kids. For them, puberty blockers are often the first step in forcibly changing their body so that it doesn't develop in a way deemed unacceptable (ex: an afab child going through "masculizing" puberty).
It is not a privilege. This is people trying to "fix" us and erase our intersexness. They are giving us medically unnecessary "treatment" for bigotted reasons. It's a violation of our bodily autonomy. It's traumatizing. Not to mention that some of these intersex "cis kids" may go on to realize they're trans.
Don't step on intersex people when trying to make a point about trans rights. Educate yourself on us overall, because this isn't the only talking point around being trans that ignores (and ultimately invalidates) intersex people. And it's especially harmful to trans intersex people.

For some people, testosterone is an important part of their gender-affirming care. No singular gender identity is required for testosterone-based gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT), but it is commonly prescribed to trans men, and transmasculine, nonbinary, and intersex folks. 鈦犫仩 鈦犫仩 Check out our graphics for a bit more info on T and share away!鈦犫仩 鈦犫仩 For more in depth info on testosterone and gender-affirming hormone therapy, check out this blog by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jerrica: bit.ly/GoodRxT鈦犫仩 鈦犫仩 Not everyone chooses to use hormone therapy as part of their gender journey.
