Even Introverts Need A Community

Ugh, MORE talk about the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference?? Yes but this will be the last episode where we go over the PTWC the until next year, we promise. But all you wonderful listeners who stopped to talk with us at PTWC got us drunk on dopamine, so all this Philly material is kind of your fault. But it also brings up the importance of community,even to introverted misanthropes like ourselves.  While online communities are invaluable and even lifesaving, there's just something about being in a room full of people like you.

Watch First Girl I Loved and weep along with Faith.

See You In Philadelphia!

Next week's Philadelphia Transgender Wellness Conference is going to be amazing. We hope we see you there. COME SAY HI AT OUR TABLE!  But 75% of the reason we got to Philly is the food.  For that reason, please educate yourself on the following important information:

1) There's an art to ordering a Philly cheesesteak, and it's worth getting it right.

2) You can have a sandwich of pork roll or Taylor ham, but it's smart to know the difference.

You can admire the luminous Faith DaBrooke on her instagram, especially her foxy new haircut.

Is 2019 a Bad Time to Come Out Trans?

Closet.jpg

Is the political climate right now conducive to coming out trans? In this week's episode we answer a listener question: "Someone close to me has come out to me as trans and I’m so proud of her but so many things in the news scare me. I know she finds them scary too. I just wonder, if you were facing starting a transition in today’s world, would you? Would any of the threats to trans rights going on today give you pause if you were still at the beginning of this process?"

Should Pride Include Cops and Corporations?

policelesbiancouplepride.jpg
Should Pride parades ban police from marching or being involved with the parades? What part should corporations be allowed to play in Pride celebrations? In this episode we explore the question of whether some organizations should be dis-invited to Pride celebrations. 

A group called the Reclaim Pride Coalition announced in May that it will mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots with a separate march. Reclaim Pride’s Queer Liberation March will begin 2.5 hours before the official parade on June 30, and will not allow either corporate or police contingents. 

Here is an article about the NYPD apology for their actions that led to the Stonewall Riots.

Snapchat Filters

IMG-2183.png

So what's up with those gender transforming Snapchat filters? Are they a blessing or a curse? In this week's episode we answer a listener question from Bridget who asks "I was wondering if you had an opinion on the new MtF and FtM Snapchat lenses. People on Twitter seem to be having a field day with them having fun. I was wondering what your thoughts were in it. Is it awesome, awful, or couldn’t care less. It seems like there is a lot of ways to look at this. On one hand it’s nice to get a 'helping hand' for selfies that can help your self esteem. In the other hand, I could see it as people making light of something that causes restless nights of in the trans community."

Gender Conformity

 

Verwijder1.jpg

Does being transgender mean you have to accept binary gender roles? In this episode we answer two different listener questions. Hanna writes "How does one know what to change when transitioning? This seems related to the pressure everyone feels on some level to embody the vague collective ideals of one's multiple social roles (gender or otherwise), but trans people have extra baggage from another role they inhabited before choosing to live a different one. How have you navigated this in your transition? Is there anything you started doing differently after transitioning only to realize it didn't really feel like you?" Riley writes "Do you think society puts unfair pressure on binary trans folx to uphold gender stereotypes, for fear of the perception that you're not putting enough effort into your gender presentation?"

And if you didn't grow up reading Mad Magazine, be sure and check out the comedy of Dick DeBartolo, who helped shape Faith's sense of humor.

Does God Make Mistakes?

platypus-in-water.jpg

Does transition mean going against God's plan? In this episode we answer a listener question from a transwoman. She asks "I am finally taking steps necessary to create the happiness and peace I need in my life through transition. I have come out to some people who are very close to me but have not come out to my parents. I have this itching feeling that my mom knows. She confronted my fiancé about me and one of her comments was 'I’m okay with being gay but transgender is something different. God doesn’t make mistakes when it comes to gender.' What is your take on religion and gender?" So does God mistakes with gender?

Dating as a Crossdresser

Rodarte_Target.jpg

Dating is already hard enough. Adding crossdressing to the mix can make things even more difficult. In this episode we answer a listener question from Natasha who asks "I'm a cis male, straight crossdresser with no intent to transition. After purging and buying clothes/breastforms/makeup for the what feels like the 20th time in a row, I'm done suppressing the femme side of me. The problem lies in relationships; while I've had several girls crush on me, I've never gotten the courage to ask any of them out for fear of ruining the relationship, or them not accepting me. I don't want to be the stereotypical "crossdressing husband/boyfriend" whose girl 'puts up with it and survives.' My question is: What tips would you give a straight crossdresser for finding a potential partner?"

Erections & Squirrels

skyscraper-under-construction-in-moody-lighting_vyhczbir__F0000.png

Hormones can change a lot. But how much do they affect ones sexual arousal? In this episode we'll answer two different (but related) questions from listeners Sammie and Cici. They write: "We are a cis woman and trans woman in the early stages of hormone therapy and have a question for you: Erections!? Sammie’s doc told her that the end of erections is how they judge the success of the hormone therapy! Yikes! Maybe this question is too X-rated for the podcast but we are feeling conflicted about parting with Sammie’s erections.

One thing Sammie has been and is still hoping for is the"remarkable clearing of the mind,"the "sense of relief" described by trans women "that comes from eliminating their masculine sex drive, which had previously interrupted their thoughts like a car alarm that couldn't be shut off." Sammie wonders, will the “Squirrel!” like effect of girls' curves in yoga pants ever diminish? Is there tranquility ahead? Would love to hear the experience and thoughts of you, Kath and Faith, as well as our fellow gender rebels in podcast land."

Dealing with Persistent Misgendering

o-FAMILY-ARGUMENT-facebook.jpg

No one likes to be misgendered. But what point do you stop being patient with people?  In episode we answer a listener question from James who asks "When does the grace period end? I’ve come out as trans to everyone in my life at this point, but there are a few who still aren’t getting it. They use the wrong pronouns, name, and never apologize. It’s been several months now and these 'problem people' are unavoidable. They’re at my work. In my family. And even a roommate. How many times do you kindly correct someone before you’re allowed to lose your patience?"

philly_trans_wellness_2018.jpg

The amazing people at the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia have done it again. They organize the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference every year. This is a gathering of trans and cis doctors, lawyers, therapists, scientists, professors, vendors, social workers, health insurance insiders, artists, activists, poets, writers, YouTubers, podcasters, clergy, parents, nurses, comedians, entrepeneurs, and even a witch. All these fine people come together to work towards a world with greater access to resources and acceptance of transfolks.  They present workshops, give talks, throw parties, and discuss and celebrate YOU. We describe our experience of our first year at the conference: the talks we heard (Seeing Myself in the Bible: Gender Minorities in ScriptureMy Journey With Illegal Silicone Injections, Communication With Your Cis Partner, Getting FFS and Breast Implants Covered By Insurance, The Road To Desired Vocal Identity), the events we attended, and the joy of meeting some of our listeners in person!  We hope we see you there next year!

Author, activistand super wonderful fantastic person Katie Rain Hill sits down with the Gender Rebels for the second part of our 100th episode. We'll talk about growing up transgender in a religious, military family, transitioning at a young age, coming out, why listening to oposition matters, and the importance recycling bins at conferences. 

 

Be sure to check out Katie's memoir Rethinking Normal on Amazon (we can't recommend this book enough! You should buy it and read it).
Also be wowed by the Barney's Spring Campaign 2014 that Katie modelled for.
And here's a link to the WPATH standards of care.
