It sounds like total crap, but it had my attention.

I have a friend who is putting together a cedar point trans event. He's wondering who would be interested in going on June 17th? He's trying to get a group rate so the more people we get to go the cheaper the price. Let me know!

Be-All [May. 2nd, 2006|09:06 pm]

So I was asked to present a workshop at this years Be-All. It's a predominately female based conference but they are desperately looking to include the masculine side this year. Saturday will be the day for the masculine side of the spectrum. Dr Michael Brownstein, MD, Dr. Marci Bowers, MD, Dr. Toby Meltzer, MD. Joelle Ruby Ryan, Ph.D. are just some of the speakers (and will be doing consolations). We're also trying to get other trans-masculine workshops as well. If you want to speak on something let me know (drag kings, passing, non-op, post-op, sex, issues, anything). The price to attend the conference seems a bit high but really you get a lot for the amount of money and they DO offer scholarships and they have a Saturday package. I really hope that I will see and or help some people go this year.

I haven't updated my livejournal in ages and haven't posted on here in ages. Lately I have been putting more thought into my gender and body issues. I have come back to identifying as genderqueer. I have also been getting quite a bit of shit on the trans chat room on yahoo. They seem to have a problem with me being genderqueer and on hormones. Someone on there said I was just a confused crossdresser. I have also been getting into arguments about access to hormones. I tend to have some issues with the SOC. But one person seemed to think that it wasn't rigid enough. As far as I am concerned a person should be able to get hormones just because they want them. But the person I was arguing with said that you go on hormones to transition. According to that line of thinking I shouldn't be on hormones. Oh well, I like being on hormones. If anyone doesn't like it, to bad. I guess that is about it for now.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE HELP [Sep. 1st, 2005|05:34 pm]

I giving a cry for help, and hopefully someone will hear me. i dont know how many people have been looking at the news, but the whole area of new orleans is devestated. my home may be the only one of the bunch of us people staying here (meaning me and the three other people im living with) that has made it without damage. they just recently stated that they are moving the people from the eastbank to the westbank, the highest ground in the area. there is no flooding there, but on the eastbank they were having problems with looting. we cant go home for atleast another month, and im sure that what is left will probably not be there by that time due to looting. my girlfriend, her friend and house-mate, and his girlfriend were from chalmette. this is st. bernard parish. that is all under 18' of water. there has been nothing officially said, but from the mouth of an EMT that stayed, "there are atleast 200 bodies floating around the parish." they cant pump the water out until they repair the levees that have broken, and the ones that are beginning to break, one of which is 500 feet wide. we have nothing here for us, and we have nothing to go back to. we have someplace to stay, but the money supply is short. We have been asked to get jobs, and are looking for alternate places for more permanent living. we are currently staying on the floor of my grandfather's living room.

We would appreciate anything anyone can give us; prayer, clothing, money, anything. I only ask because I know all of you guys are a great bunch. If anyone wants to get together and meet, I'm staying on the outskirts of Houston. We have a car, that by the grace of god, made it this far, but can't handle anything not local. Email me at fighting_eternaly@opendiary.com for information on how to send things.

Again, anything is appreciated, and I hope everyone else who was affected by the storm is ok, and in a better condition than we are.

Coming ever closer... [Aug. 30th, 2005|07:03 pm]

Hey...

So...hi. I haven't seen a lot of traffic on this community, but it should be worth writing to, anyway.

I'm currently identified as genderqueer and am in the middle of considering taking testosterone. I have a lot of fears about this which I've written about elsewhere... What I feel is going on is that I really do want to take testosterone, but I'm just really scared. I'm scared of the biological consequences of T and long-term binding like tissue breakdown and hypertrophic scarring (though ironically heart disease is one of the things I simply *know* I'm going to have to deal with, and no one suggests transitioning to female in order to avoid it, so it's not that scary), I'm scared of the social consequences of being visibly transgender.Read more...Collapse )

post-T sexual sensation [Aug. 18th, 2005|06:12 pm]
queeredbodies

So, I took my 3rd T shot on Saturday, and I have some questions for other post-T guys about changes in sexual sensation.

So far the hormones love me in a sexual sense (and all the others). My cock has gotten to be about an inch long already, and it is pretty sensitive, which I know is normal and have heard may become less acute with time (so far the only issue with this has been irritation when I wear my packer all day). However, the last couple of days I have noticed that vaginal penetration feels different than it used to-- not bad, persay, just different. I still want it, and don't forsee that changing; however, I noticed this morning that angles that used to be failsafe for driving me wild weren't working as well. I was not lubricating nearly as much as I normally do (which I've also heard is common). Certain angles were slightly uncomfortable in a way I couldn't quite pinpoint. Everything still felt good, all around, just different. I don't know if all of this is related to the T or if it was just how things felt today.

My question, I think, is what have your experiences been in this arena, and did you find that, as I have heard with cock hypersensitivity, vaginal sensitivity settled down over time? Or were the sensation changes permanent? In any case, how did you who enjoy vaginal penetration handle this? Did it remain something you enjoy?

I don't think this necessarily means I won't enjoy it anymore. I'm just wondering if it means i'll have to find new ways to enjoy it (my first step toward this was to buy a bottle of lube today).

Any input will be most welcome. Thanks!

~S.
