the scalpel poem [Apr. 21st, 2005|12:15 am]

suck me
out from inside
cut my figure down
to bone and skin
cheat me
sew me up and
beat me
deconstruct me
tie me up and
fuck me
cut me open
suck out the past
release the future
into my hands

move me
sedate me and
improve me
cut my nipples down to size
trust me
this is how you
thrust me
when i'm upside down
and inside out
on your bed
inside your head
touch me
dissect me and
discuss me
pin my skin to the sheet
touch my breasts and lick my feet
i'm upside downandinsideout and i'm never
i'm drowning
so pull me up and throw me
wrap your arms around me
as i pull your body out from in
and you come and
tuck me in

into a bed of razorblades--
i know i won't wake up the same

Cross-posting here from ftm and femme_ftm...

My dilemma is that I'm starting to deal again with issues of whether or not to transition. It is a lot of trouble, and it probably won't make my life easier, but sometimes I just want to be male.

A few years ago I was identifying as transmale, then as feminine male, then moved into an identity of 'intergender' in order to try and find a way of thinking about myself that would encompass all of me and keep me from fragmenting. Recently I've been going through a period of picking up clothing that's traditionally feminine (some of it in self-jest, like my pink backpack) and seeing how it feels. I recently began weight training again and with that I've begun losing my curves (I actually did appreciate them).sighCollapse )

hi,, im getting closer to the point of making a decision about top surgery (masectomy) but still very hesitant about it. i think it would make me really happy but im not sure if im a canidate for keyhole-lipo which is what i would prefer . i'm a b cup... its hard to think of going from an unscarred body which any female would be pleased to have to a scarred and visibly imperfect one. i'm worried about complications- ive seen the pictures... a lot of them are not pretty. any thoughts?

the new guy [Dec. 22nd, 2004|09:09 pm]

Hey y'all, you haven't heard from me before, I don't think, but I am embarking on my transitional journey after years of agonizing about it. I'd love to hear from any FtMs who can offer surgical advice or experiences. If anyone needs a frame of reference, the chronicling of my journey can be found in my regular LJ, the bulk of it starting in November. I think most if not all the entries pertaining to this show up on the first page of my journal.

The following is the latest in my obstacles. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.




There is no breast operation that will guarantee sensation. Given your
description, you are not a good candidate for keyhole. Any procedure that
preserves enough tissue to improve the chance for erotic sensation would, in
my estimation, leave too much breast tissue behind to really achieve the
right appearance. That is why I recommend the double incision operation for
those patients not suitable for keyhole.
We do not have a payment plan, but do have references to third party
companies that will finance procedures with credit.
The total of costs for the surgery comes to $7,550.
I am not currently scheduled for any meeting until the Harry Benjamin
meeting next April.
If you would like more detailed information, please provide a mailing
address and we will get it to you.

Strike one. I guess. I am intent on having a surgery that will maintain sensation in my chest... maybe if I lose enough weight, that in addition to the fat redistributing effects of the T will make 'em small enough for the surgery that does offer some hope of retaining erotic feeling.
