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.

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.

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.
