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.

If you are an MTF trans woman, you have probably made many adjustments during and after the transitioning process. Because you grew up male, there are some things you have to learn now in order to be a woman. Luckily, there is a lot of information available to help you become the female you always dreamed of. To be good at applying make-up, you must be knowledgeable about the ins and outs of it. Researching is a good way to sharpen your knowledge on how to apply make-up. Through researching, you will be able to learn important information, such as what brushes to use, the colors that complement your skin tone, and so much more.

Buy Quality Products

To apply make-up beautifully, you must first have the right tools and products. As mentioned above, you must first make sure that you know which brushes and products are the best. However, you should note that quality products come with a hefty price tag. However, they do not need to cost an arm and a leg either.

Quality brushes are one good set of products to invest in because they offer you more control when you apply your make-up. Quality brushes are also beneficial because they are more durable.

Never Ignore Your Eyebrows

Never make the mistake of leaving your eyebrows ungroomed. However, grooming your eyebrows does not necessarily mean that you pluck them. The point of eyebrows is to frame the face, so cleaning up wayward strands is all that is necessary. You can reshape and tame the rest of them with eyebrow wax.

Plump Lips

transgender woman

it is undeniable that fuller lips are sexier. To have full lips without giving off a sex doll vibe, you should line the lips slightly outside the natural line. Next, you should use a lip brush to fill in your lips with your chosen lipstick. Then, powder the lipstick lightly and carefully dust away the excess. Finally, reapply the lipstick one more time. This ensures that your color will remain vibrant even for a whole night out. If you cannot seem to get the shape you want, visit a professional to learn how to achieve the right look.

Who Are Two-Spirit People

two-spirit

Two-spirit is a gender that is found in only North American who fulfills one of many mixed gender roles found traditionally among many Native Americans and Canadian First Nations indigenous groups. The mixed gender roles encompassed by the term historically included wearing the clothing and performing the work associated with both men and women. This English term emerged in 1990 out of the third annual inter-tribal Native American/First Nations gay/lesbian American conference in Winnipeg. A direct translation of the Ojibwe term, Niizh manidoowag, “two-spirited” or “two-spirit” is usually used to indicate a person whose body has a masculine spirit and a feminine spirit. The term can also be used more abstractly, to designate the presence of two contrasting human spirits or two contrasting animal spirits (which, depending on the culture, might be Eagle and Coyote). Will Roscoe writes that male and female berdaches have been “documented in over 130 tribes, in every region of North America, among every type of native culture.”The term berdache was coined by western anthropologists and used until the late 20th century, mainly to describe feminine Native Americans assigned male at birth. The term is however inaccurate and can nowadays be considered offensive. Non-natives who use this identity are often accused of “appropriating Native culture.” The history of two-spirits among Indigenous American culture dates back thousands, of years and has been documented in more than 130 North American tribes. Throughout history, a person who was recognized as two-spirit was someone who identified with both male and female gender roles, and so two-spirit is essentially a third gender recognized in Indigenous cultures. The perspective among Indigenous Americans was that having this third gender was a strength their society benefited from. In the Zuni culture, a person’s gender was not assigned at birth but was grown into 3 or 4 years of age. Two-spirits were not thought of as just a man or just a woman but as embodying characteristics of both genders in a single person, making them a more whole human being.

Two Spirit

This Two-Spirits encourages the belief that, by avoiding the pressures surrounding an individual, they are capable of establishing their own identity. This identity for native Two-Spirit individuals arises from an acceptance of their native cultural values and a rejection of Western values. This rejection specifically applies to Western conventions regarding race and sexual identity as the Two-Spirit person’s identity is maintained by their sexual orientation as both male and female and their commitment to their culture or ethnicity.

Femininity Guide for Transgender Women

transgender women

Transsexuals have a yearning to live life to the fullest. This is the reason they are “reborn” when they get sex reassignment surgery. However, when they get a new lease on life thanks to the transsexual surgery, many transgender women are faced with the challenge of how to be a feminine. Women have a deeply ingrained need to look elegant and fashionable. There is a lot that goes into making a woman look stylish. For example, men often find a woman’s handbag to be a puzzling conundrum due to the variety of items that are found inside. Though clothes, accessories, and cosmetics cannot be ruled out as contributing to femininity, the following three points play a pivotal role in a woman’s life.

Understanding femininity

transgender women

As mentioned above, femininity is more than what one wears or puts on their face. Femininity stems from how one carries their body. Words that aptly and precisely capture femininity would be, “your body makes you feel sexy, your face makes you pretty, your smile makes you gorgeous, but it’s your mind that ices the cake by making you beautiful!” Therefore, it would suffice to say that no amount of money in this world could buy femininity because it is largely a disposition.

Some trans women are at times reduced to employing “femininity coaches” so as to improve their femininity. However, while the hardest task of being a female is this aspect of understanding femininity, it must be shouldered by the transgender woman, regardless of the cost of hiring a coach.

Your movement and voice

TransSingle_35

Women do not walk or move slovenly; there is grace in their movements. Transgender women have to abide by such decorous body movement so as to stay in touch with their feminine side. As a transgender woman, if you do not want people to stare at you every time you saunter into a room, then you have to buckle down and train your body movements to mirror those of a female. At times, women don’t walk; they gracefully slide. Women don’t take a seat by dropping into a chair; they gently sit down. Women don’t sit down with their legs apart; the legs have to be neatly closed together.

When it comes to the voice, it has to be gentle like a falling feather. You can read magazines and watch videos like ‘Develop a Female Voice’ by Melanie Ann Phillips. You can also practice how to speak like a woman with a friend who is honest and unbiased. Whilst training on how to speak and move like a woman, learn to constantly smile because it brings out your feminine side.

What you carry in a handbag

Transgender women find themselves carrying handbags, something that was probably foreign to them initially. Some examples of things that are a “must” in a woman’s handbag include the following: hand sanitizer, feminine hygiene products (tampons), deodorant, a compact mirror, lip products, cash, safety pins, a notebook and a pen.
