Do You Miss Anything about Living as a Guy?

1.jpg

It's amazing to transition, but is everything always perfect afterward? This week we answer a listener question from Nora. She asks "Is there anything about being a cis male that you miss? Please don’t misconstrue this as 'do you regret transitioning?'  That question would be rude, inconsiderate, and non of my business. And it’s not a sociological question such as 'Don’t you wish women earned as much as men?'  I’m just wondering about day-to-day stuff  where there’s a (generalized) difference between the way women and men do things, or the way they act.

As we discuss in the episode, check out this article on Everyday Feminism about women's secondary status in public places.

Finding the will to get in shape can be tough, doubly so for transgender people who may be nervous about going to a gym with binary changing rooms. In this episode we answer a listener question from Bree who asks "Do you have any tips for going to the gym? Despite having been full-time for almost a year, I am terrified of going to they gym. My problem is I just don't know how to approach the gym and I am dragging my heels getting back in there because of it. Any advice?”

Impostor Syndrome

Vtaf1vz.jpg

Are you transgender but sometimes feel like an imposter? In this episode we answer a listener question from Ashley who writes "How do you deal with impostor syndrome? I'm six weeks into HRT and while I still have to present male most of the time, I'm generally hopeful for the future. But some days (rarely) I wake up and ask 'What am I doing?' I know in my heart of hearts that I'm a trans woman and that transition is for me, but some times I feel like a total fake.'"

Will taking hormones inadvertantly out you? In this episode we answer a question from Dace who asks "If I’m on HRT will it become obvious to everyone? Is it a good idea or even possible to be on HRT and hide it from some people (i.e. family and friends who I think wouldn’t be ok with it)?"

Developing a Sense of Style

4a69010c236831c48ffbc78827cdfa2c.jpg

A sense of style can show the world who you are, but how do you figure out your own sense of style? In this episode we answer a listener question from Steph who asks "I am a primarily feminine non-binary individual, born male. How does one go about developing a sense of style for one's new self?  I am trying to learn what feels right for me, but I do not have the education of someone that grew up female.  Also, do you have any advice for growing a brand new wardrobe?" We'll talk about finding different looks, keys to a robust wardrobe, and how to have fun figuring out your own sense of style. 


Check out Faith's Pinterest for ideas on business goth, and check out British TV show Fresh Meat for Oregon's cool outfits. Reddit Makeup Addiction is a great resource for learning makeup basics (and complex stuff too).  Also be sure and check out our Feminize for Free episode for some great frugal fashion ideas.
