Surviving in The Society: Transgender MTF

Transgender MTF

Transgender MtF (male to female) refers to a person who was AMAB—assigned the gender “male” at birth. This is mainly because they have a male body. However, they identify as female and want to be referred to as “she” because they realized while growing up that they were females, and is transitioning to life as a woman. This is perfectly normal and should be respected by the society.

Therefore calling a Transgender MtF or FtM is sometimes deemed offensive because the generally accepted term is “trans woman” instead of MtF and “trans man” instead of FtM. It is less provocative to use them except in the cases where it is certain that a person is comfortable with the terms MtF or FtM.

Identity Struggle/Finding Love

In our society, Transgender Women (male to female) has struggled with identity insecurities, deprivation and discrimination because of the common misconception held against them by the society that transsexuals are gay and mentally sick.

One of the problems a transgender MtF face while growing up is getting confused and lost whenever you look in the mirror, seeing a feminine face with a masculine body, trying to deny the fact that there is a girl begging to be let out, going through the process of realizing who you are could be uncomfortable, because of the gender stereotype the society presses on everyone.

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.

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.

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
