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.

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.

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.

Tips for Trans Guys Who Want to Look Exceptionally Attractive

Female to Male Transgender

Many trans guys count on FTM dating site to find a partner. While there are some who are there because they enjoy being a part of a community where they belong, some are there because that’s the only place they can display confidence. In reality, there are a lot of trans men who lack self-esteem. One of the reasons these individuals have a hard time believing in themselves is because they do not feel they are physically attractive. They are not comfortable wearing a man’s clothes although it is their preferred type of wardrobe.

If you are a trans man and you happen to be struggling to look exceptionally good with what you wear, consider the following tips.

Refrain from wearing anything that you find awkward on you.

Although it may not really look awkward, do not wear it if you don’t feel like it. Just like any other guys, not all trending fashion items look good on them. Do not try to wear a wardrobe just because you want to join the bandwagon.

Choose the right pair of pants.

Don’t go for a complicated fashion style. A simple pair of pants can make you look great provided that you know the kind that will emphasize your best but less feminine assets. Avoid wearing pleated pants as this will only put the accent on your curves, particularly your thighs and hips. Instead, find the kind that is flat-front to make your hips less obvious.

Be selective in the shirts you wear.

If you are a pre-op trans man and you don’t want to make your chest obvious, you have to know the rules in wearing a shirt. Ones with the asymmetrical pattern are the kind that can conceal your bulges. Imagine wearing a shirt with patterns like stripes. The lines on your chest will surely arch and make your breast noticeable. This can be avoided if you wear a plain shirt or one without the pattern on the chest part.

Highlight your arms.

Transgender Female to MaleYour arms are the safest part you can headline when dressing up. Wear a shirt that is a little fitting on your shoulders and arms. It has to be loose in the midsection to keep your chest unnoticed but it should not be too big for your body frame.

Go for shoes that make you look taller.

To make your body look longer and achieve a more masculine physique, you have to be picky when it comes to your shoes. Boots are a great choice because it literally improves your height and it also comes in a manly form. Sneakers are also an option but when it comes to versatility, boots are exceptional.

When you make it a habit to abide by these female to male fashion rules, it will be easier for you to carry yourself with confidence. It will no longer intimidate you when someone you met in a transgender dating site asks you out on a date. There’s no need to go to extremes when trying to look like a real man. A trans man that is truly attractive is one who always keeps it simple and demonstrates the right attitude.

Debunking Facial Hair Myths Tips for FTM Transgender Guys

FTM Transgender Guys

Facial hair and manliness go hand in hand. It is therefore important for FTM transgender guys to know the nuts and bolts dealing with facial hair and shaving if they want to embrace masculinity. If you are an FTM transgender guy who has started hormone replacement therapy, you might be wondering if you will be able to grow facial hair. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee you would be able to grow it, even if you have started hormone replacement therapy because facial hair growth is largely based on genetics. If your genetics do not favor facial hair, then you might not be able to grow a beard.

There are some indications that might give you a better picture of whether or not you would be lucky enough to grow a beard. For example, if your dad or uncles have a beard, then your chances of growing one during/after your hormone replacement therapy is higher.

Can Facial Hair Products Help You Grow a Beard?

Many FTM transgender guys would do anything to grow a beard. Unfortunately, many of them are convinced that products like Minoxidil can play a significant role in helping them grow one. However, the truth is that no product can help you grow a beard. As mentioned earlier, genetics is the primary factor that determines hair growth. Therefore, do not invest your money in costly products that blatantly promise to grow a beard overnight. All you need to grow a beard is the right genetics, hormone replacement therapy, and some patience.

Does Shaving Promote Beard Growth?

FTM Transgender GuysThere are several myths that surround facial hair growth. Unfortunately, both cis men and FTM transgender guys swallow some of these myths hook, line, and sinker. One of these myths is that shaving promotes beard growth. The truth of the matter is that it does not, and there has not been a single piece of research that has shown this. Shaving will neither help you grow facial hair nor help your facial hair become thicker.

Does Taking More Testosterone Boost Facial Hair Growth?

Some myths that surround facial hair growth are dangerous and can adversely affect the body. A good example of such a myth is that taking more testosterone can help boost your chances of growing facial hair. While testosterone will make you experience a second puberty, making you grow facial hair, it cannot help you grow facial hair if your genetics do not favor it. Therefore, never make the mistake of taking more testosterone in order to boost facial hair growth. Only take the prescribed amount, as taking more than that might have harmful effects on your body.

Relationship Tips for FTM Transgender Guys

FTM Ttransgender Guys

Being a FTM Transgender Men is not easy. You are faced with a plethora of challenges personally, sexually, and socially. When it comes to relationships, things can get even more complicated. However, this does not mean you should avoid them. You have sexual and romantic needs and to fulfill them, you must know how to combat some of the challenges that come with relationships. Whether you are dating another trans person or a cisgender person, you should be aware of the potential bumps you could experience. Below are some tips that will help you have a smooth relationship with your partner.

Treat Your Transitioning Process and Relationship Differently

Many FTM transgender guys make the mistake of letting the transition process take over their relationship. Even though it is understandable that the transitioning period can be very demanding, it is important to make sure that it does not mess with your relationship. When you let your transitioning process consume all your thoughts and energy, your relationship will become bland and unfulfilling.

Even though your partner may be willing to support you during your transitioning period, you shouldn’t let all your conversations be about one topic. It can be rather frustrating for your partner if all your conversations are only about you and your situation. Your partner also needs to be listened to and cared for in order to make your relationship work.

Avoid Stereotypical Masculine Behavior

While it is important to embrace your masculinity, it is equally important to not go overboard. You could end up damaging a relationship by taking your masculine behavior and actions too far. Stereotypical masculine behaviors, such as refusing to do chores or avoiding the display of vulnerabilities, will only have a negative impact on your relationship. Sharing your emotions with your partner does not make you any less of a man. Opening up to your partner will, in fact, make your relationship stronger.

Communicate Your Sexual ConcernsFTM Ttransgender Guys

Communication is crucial on so many different levels. If you want to be intimate with your partner, it is important that you communicate accordingly. A good way to accomplish this is to directly tell your partner what turns you on or off during sex. Communicate with your partner about which body parts you like touched and which ones are off-limits. It is important you have this conversation before the two of you hit the sack. Even though such talk may not be romantic or sexy, it is important because it will lead to more satisfying sex and a better relationship.

Walk Away If the Relationship Is Not Working

Relationships are supposed to be safe havens. If you find your relationship is not providing you with the love and support you need, walk away. Never make the mistake of hanging around in an abusive relationship. It will only mess with your self-esteem and prevent you from living your life to the fullest. It is better to walk away with a broken heart than to let a relationship break you as a person.

Passing Tips for FTM Transgender Men

FTM Transgender Men

The life of a FTM Transgender Men can be very difficult, especially if they don’t pass as male. If you don’t pass as a male, going out in public can be overwhelmingly challenging and intimidating. When someone who is trying to be polite refers to you as “ma’am,” it can be detrimental to your efforts to embrace your masculinity. Below are some tips to help you pass as male in public. While these tips may not fix everything, they will at least decrease the chances of being referred to as “ma’am.”

Wear Clothes Made for Men

FTM Transgender Men

One of the easiest and simplest ways of passing as a male is by wearing male clothes. Unlike female clothes that are designed to highlight curves, men’s clothing tends to be straighter and hides curves. If your body is curvy, wearing male clothes can help you hide your curves. In particular, straight cut pants from the men’s department can help create a flatter behind.

You should try to dress more conservatively that you might have before. This will help you to avoid being mistaken for a lesbian. Simply choose a male image you want to project and cultivate a look to suit that image.

Even out Your Chest

The chest is one of the areas that gives many FTM Transgender Guys a headache. This is because it is very hard to pass as a male when you have a curvy chest. If your chest does protrude, you should invest in a good binder to flatten it. Binding your chest flattens it and gives you a masculine appearance. There are multiple types, so you must do some research and choose the binding methodology that suits you best.

As a side point, binding yourself tightly for too long might be harmful because it causes rib and back pain. It is important to use moderation and give yourself a break from binding occasionally. Also, never use tape or elastic bandages when binding your chest

Get a Hair Cut

FTM Transgender Men

Long hair can have a negative impact on the male image you want to project. If you currently have medium length or long hair, it would be wise to consider a haircut. A good haircut that will certainly help you project a male image. Typical male hairstyles involve keeping your hair short in the back and on the sides.

It is often said that barbers do a much better job at providing a male haircut compared to hairdressers. However, it would be wise to try them both and see which one works better for you. You should not, however, under any circumstances take a pair of scissors and try to do the work yourself. Get a professional haircut, and it will be worth every penny.

Packing Tips for FTM Transgender Men

FTM Transgender Men

As a FTM transgender guy, how you feel is equally as important as how you look. Therefore, it is important not only to project a male image but also to feel comfortable in your own skin. One of the places that FTM transgender men have a problem when it comes to feeling like a man is in their nether regions. Given that they have neither a male-looking nor a male-feeling crotch, feeling truly manly can pose some challenges. Luckily, all this can be remedied thanks to packing. In fact, packing is crucial for those who have not undergone a sex reassignment surgery.

Packing, for the uninitiated, is the art of creating a male-looking and male-feeling bulge in the crotch. Packing is essential for FTM transgender guys because it offers them a realistic bulge like that of a regular guy. Some of the terms that are used to refer to a packing device include packy, packer, and STP packer. STP packers are particularly beneficial because you can use them to pee while standing like a man.

It is worth mentioning that not all trans men pack. Some say that packing is too hot or sticky, leading to an uncomfortable feeling. If you find that packing is uncomfortable, you don’t have to do it. Additionally, others do not pack simply because they find it unnecessary.

Occasions that May Warrant Packing

Packing can be particularly advantageous in some specific situations. Even if you don’t like packing, wearing one during these occasions can significantly help you project a strong male image. Many of the occasions that may require you to wear a packing device include times where your crotch area is exposed, such as while swimming. Additionally, if you are the daring type who likes to wear tight fitting pants, packing would be handy because it would help you create a male-looking bulge.

Hard Packing and Soft Packing

FTM Transgender Men

As an FTM transgender men, it is important to understand some of the terms that go with packing. Specifically, you must know how to distinguish between hard packing and soft packing. Packing hard can be defined as the act of wearing a dildo or another prosthetic device that is usually erect. Hard packing is usually done for the purpose of sexual enjoyment. Given that men don’t usually walk about with erect phalluses, it would probably be best to leave hard packing for the bedroom. On the other hand, soft packing simply refers to wearing a packing device simply to create the illusion of a flaccid phallus.

In conclusion, if you are packing for the first time, it would be a good idea to do some research on the products and styles available so that you can create a convincing look with your packing device. Researching online will give you plenty of examples to emulate and teach you how the male scrotum sits under underwear.

How to Display Male Body Language for FTM Transgender Male

FTM Transgender Male

People are very good at reading body language. They can tell whether you are confidence about yourself or if you are tense and nervous just by looking at you. Additionally, male and female body language has some distinct differences in style. As a result, it is important to know what kind of body language is attractive as a FTM transgender male. If you understand and practice attractive body language techniques, you will not only build your confidence but also enjoy an unrivaled masculine image.

Have Good Posture

FTM Transgender Male

Although it may sound cliché, good posture is the first step to having attractive male body language. As a FTM trans guy, it is important to have a good body posture because it creates an aura of confidence around you. There is nothing more obviously unattractive than terrible posture. Slouching as you walk and sit will only show people that you do not have confidence. On the other hand, walking around with an elevated chest and shoulders back will certainly make you feel and look more attractive and manly.

Slow Down Your Movements

Men that display attractive body language are sure of themselves. Their body movements are often precise and calculated. As a FTM transgender male, you should also try to act like this. You should slow down your body movement, as this makes you look more confident and natural. Try to make your movements smooth and graceful. This does not mean you should walk like a tortoise. It simply means avoiding running around like a headless chicken.

Eye Contact

FTM Transgender Male

A key aspect of good body language for both men and women is eye contact. When conversing with other people, proper eye contact is one of the main things they will immediately notice. To be an alpha male, you need to know how to maintain proper eye contact with those you are talking with. Additionally, this will certainly get you more points when conversing with women. Looking down or averting your eyes when conversing with a lady will reveal a lack of confidence. On the other hand, never blinking or holding eye contact for too long can make your partner feel uncomfortable. You should learn the difference between staring and maintaining proper eye contact. Coupled with a smile, good eye contact will help you project attractive male body language.

Embracing the Journey from Female to Male

Female to Male

In this world, there are people who are born female but identify as male. Such people yearn to transition to the gender they have always identified with. If you are a female who identifies with the male gender, understand that you are not alone. Thanks to the advancement of technology, you can physically transition to the male you have always been.

Female to MaleThe surgery that will enable you to transform from female to male is known as Sex Reassignment Surgery. This surgery alters your physical features to match those of the male gender. It involves two stages: the upper surgery and the bottom surgery. The upper surgery includes a double mastectomy and the reconstruction of the chest. This will get rid of your bust and give you a flat, manly chest. The bottom surgery involves a surgery known as RFF Phalloplasty. This procedure involves the use of skin and veins from the forearm to construct a male phallus. Apart from RFF Phalloplasty, there is another similar procedure called ALT Phalloplasty that uses skin and veins from the thighs to make a male phallus instead.

Transitioning from female to male is a unique journey for each person who chooses to undertake it. You not only have to transition physically but socially as well. Below are some insightful tips that will help you learn how to embrace your journey from female to male.

Accept Yourself

Just because you do not identify with the gender you received at birth does not make you a basket case. It is perfectly normal not to identify with the gender assigned at birth. Many people, unfortunately, are faced with gender dysphoria due to this situation. Therefore, it is essential to accept who you are. In fact, accepting yourself is a vital step in your transitioning process.

Start by Coming Out

The best starting point for your transition is to come out. While this step may be uncomfortable, you need to take it nonetheless. Your family, friends, and loved ones need time to adjust to the news. Even after your physical transformation it might take time because people were used to the female you. During this step, you will need a strong support system, so finding friends and family members who are accepting of your change should be a priority.

Start Acting/Dressing like a Guy

Female to Male

Social transformation is an important step on your journey to embracing your masculinity. You can start your social transformation simply by acting and dressing like a guy. You cannot expect people to address you as a “he” when you are dressed in clearly feminine clothes. Remember: the acting will eventually have to stop for you to become the real you, meaning it will eventually become your reality and not an act. There are various websites online where you can read about how to project a manly image.

Seek Professional Help

For your physical transformation, you will need professional help. You should begin by talking to a therapist, who can help you with the emotional problems you may be going through. Next, you should look for a professional doctor who can advise you on the best route to follow for your physical transformation.

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.

female to male

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.

chaz bono

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.

Buck Angel

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.
