I wish I could show this to you guys. 

My best friend is a trans* guy, and, well, he was never very respectful of my gender or related issues. He’s the only other trans* person I know in person, and he’s older than me, and I really need him as a good role model, so this has always pained me quite a bit. I’m a FAAB genderqueer, and I present in a very feminine manner. In short, he’s always told me that I’m not trans* enough- I look like a duck and I quack like one, too, so I must be a duck. He, on the other hand, is society’s epitome of what a trans* man should be- perfectly masculine, transsexual as well as transgender, and all in all a “perfect man” by societal standards.

He just apologized to me, quite extensively, and very sincerely. In short, he was doing it because he felt that his identity was threatened, but he’s definitely seen the light and had that “duh” moment that we’ve all had when we’ve been obviously ignorant for a length of time.

I. Am. So. Happy.

For me, school starts tomorrow. 

Don’t worry, I’ll still be checking on things every day. A little bit of organized education never kept me from the internet.

Anonymous asked:
Hey, do you know if a doctor or psychiatrist would give you T? I have a doctor who I've told I'm trans but will he give it me? Or will the psychiatrist give me it? Thanks.

You’re gonna have to find/be referred to an endocrinologist (a doctor that works with hormones). Ask your doctor about it. You may also have to go through a few sessions with a gender psychologist depending on your age and area you live in. - Ray

"The Levamentum Project: Building Comfort"
-

Hi there! Im  Alex a 17 year old transman from sunny san diego and I would like to tell you about an organization I set up called The Levamentum Project. The Levamentum Project is a new organization designed to help transgender youth with their transitions. Some of the features of the project include;

-          An online store that sells handmade goods in which 80% of the profits go to Surgeries and HRT

-          A binder and packer exchange program

-          A penpal program

-          A newsletter that updates followers about the program and provides special discounts at the store.

-Inexpensive packers($6-$7.50) and binders ($16 or $27)

There are many more things we would like to add to the program and many improvements that need to be made. The only way these things can happen are if we gain more supporters and spread the word as much as possible. The program does not have any form of funding at the moment other than donations. In order to keep this program up and running we need your help! We are asking you to spread the word to all of your followers and to check out the program for yourselves. Thank You for your help and support.

-Alex
