Trans Man – Accepting and Loving Oneself

FTM Relationship

One of the greatest challenges a Trans Man face is to accept, embrace and love oneself. To accept themselves for whom they are, their feelings and needs and accepting the fact that not everyone you hold dear to your heart will agree to all your decisions in every step of the way. But choosing to love and honor yourself as a Transgender Man, instead of trying to force others to do it for you every day is the best decision you could ever make in life. We have to understand that our greatest task is not about finding self-love; it’s about breaking down the walls we have built against it in order to know and love yourself, despite our humanness, our flaws, and our rejections.

Ways to love oneself:

  • Tell yourself the things you love about you by believing in your abilities because you are a rare gem.

  • Start giving yourselves credit for everything you are and everything you’re about to become.

  • Avoid perfectionism because understanding nobody is perfect would make you happier and prevent you from making mistakes, so focus on being a better you by accepting who you are and embracing your flaws.

  • Holding a grudge against yourself is wrong, so one needs to let go and forgive their past mistakes. Always stay positive and overcome negative beliefs about yourself.

  • Building a strong connection with your inner self.

  • Work on your self-trust.

  • And most importantly, take care of yourself.

Earth is filled with over 7 Billion people; you shouldn’t feel lesser or subjected to accept the negative thoughts or opinions of other people. Be the best FTM Trans Guy you can be for yourself and the society, and also treat people the way you desire to be treated.

FTM Transgender GInstead of worrying yourself thinking “I am an incomplete human because I am an FTM Transgender Guy”, you need to think “I am an incredible, special, wonderful and beautiful human being with an overwhelming sense of touch and understanding and is capable of love. Believe you are a source of many wonderful things, and if you desire the need to remember what they are from time to time, make yourself a feel-good list. Keep coming back to the love that is inherently yours, it is your birthright and so it is. Value the good parts of you as well as the parts that you think needs improvement. Learn to admit judgment against yourself and soften those judgments, so that every part of yourself can be valued to highest level there is. Additionally, it is imperative you learn to commit yourself to shift your focus from judgment and criticism to tolerance and compassion. You are a victim of the beliefs you live by, you have the power to create a unique person out of yourself, don’t stop being the best Trans Man you can be.

We sometimes live in bondage of the mental cage we construct by ourselves, be free and love yourself for who you are.

Instead of believing in the idea of other people loving you, Understand the need to love yourself first.

Transgender FTM Passing

A Trans male is someone who is transitioning from female to male. Often times it is also someone who was born biologically female, but identifies as male, usually because they are unable to transition, for various reasons.

Most Transgender Female to Male do eventually choose to transition and will do so by going through HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy. They can go to a doctor to receive a prescription for what is usually biweekly injections, though there are other means of receiving the hormone, through methods like patches, gels, or several other ways.

In order to “pass” as male, some trans males will try to get the testosterone, as it will give them a generally more masculine appearance, and lower their voices. However, many FTM transgender male is unable to start hormone therapy and instead will find other ways to match a male appearance. Binding is one option, where one will bind their breasts to achieve the look of a flat chest. There are quite a lot of ways to do this, but many of them have been known to be very unsafe. One method is using Ace Bandages, but that has been very well known to cause many health problems, and most people will warn against this method. It is not safe and can cause serious damage to the ribs and lungs.

The safest known way is to buy a medical chest binder, which can be found rather easily online, and in many different styles. Most, if not all trans men will bind their chests unless they are able to receive “top” surgery, which is usually a surgery to remove most of the breast tissue from the chest.

Another thing trans men will do in order to pass is packing, where they will put something in their pants to mimic the appearance of the bulge left by male genitalia. Packers are sold online in many places and often look alike to the male genitalia. A much simpler, cheaper method of packing is to use a rolled up sock and place it properly.

Slightly oversize shirts and loose pants are usually the keys to having a masculine appearance, though some FTM trans man is able to take on a masculine appearance without the use of large t-shirts. Buying male clothes alone can help more than one would think they could, and it’s a rather easy thing to achieve, seeing as male clothing is usually much cheaper than woman’s clothing.

Much of appearing male depends on your mannerisms and things that one really wouldn’t think to focus on. Men tend to have a different walk than most women, and focusing on the gait while walking can often give a person a more “masculine” way of walking.

One thing to focus on as well is appearance while sitting. Men tend to take up as much space as they can while sitting, while women do the opposite. Generally just trying to take up as much space as possible while sitting will bring a more masculine appearance, from spreading the legs to doing something as simple as leaning back more.

Trans men are known to be of many sexualities, though a large amount of them are Pansexual, which is an attraction to someone regardless of their gender identity.

Quite a few transgender men are known to date heterosexual women, while some will date gay men. It all depends mostly on the FTM transgender man themselves, and the people that are interested in dating them.

Quite a few well known trans men include:

Chaz Bono, the son of Cher, who has written a book on his experiences as a trans man. The movie Becoming Chaz came out in 2011, which was also a movie about his transition.

Brandon Teena, who was a young trans man that was murdered in 1993. A movie was made about him, the 1999 film Boys Don’t Cry.

And Buck Angel, who is a film-maker, speaker, and advocate. He stars in a documentary about his life, as well.

Many movies have been made about or starring trans men, including those listed above, as well as the 2002 film Just, Call Me Kade, the 2006 movie Boy I Am, and the 2015 movie About Ray.

Many of the movies being created the focus on the problems facing transgender youth, which has been an increasing concern in recent years.
