Listener Question: Am I a Chaser?

c20bafd0f50e38e4782e675dc7981f32.jpg

Does being attracted to a transgender woman make you a chaser? In this episode we read a listener question from Stephen who asks "I met this girl online and we started dating. A couple dates in, she tells me that she's trans. I was totally okay with it, and so we continued dating. We shortly thereafter ended up in the bedroom, and at the danger of being crass, dare I say that it was probably one of the best experiences I'd had in that department. As time went on, our relationship devolved for reasons unrelated and came to an end, but it left me more sexually open and interested.So, I tried my hand at dating men, since they share some of the parts that were fun, but I didn't like it, because as it turns out, I'm not into men. While I still very much enjoy cis women as well, I think I've grown a preference towards trans women. I definitely think that I go out of my way to be respectful and a gentleman to anyone I date, regardless of where they are on the spectrum. Does this make me a chaser, and if so, do I just stop attempting to date trans folks?"

 

We're fans of Her Story, starring Jen Richards.

 

There's plenty of talk about fetish porn in this episode, but you're going to have to do your own research there.

How to Get on Hormones

woman-consulting-doctor.jpg

Taking hormones can be a huge part of starting transition, but how does one get HRT? In this episode we answer a listener question from Mia who asks "I want to get on hormones, but am having trouble figuring out how to get access to hormones? Who can I talk to about this?" 

If you are in the greater NYC area, check out Callen-Lorde Community Health Center. Planned Parenthood also provides HRT services among other important health care work. You can also search for transgender health care providers here.

Our first episode with Dr. HD of Hormones Demystfied has a lot of good info on HRT.

Check out the Center for Transgender Health which has a page on the Transgender Standards of Care.

(And a clarification regarding psychologists and prescriptions: in some states, psychologists can prescribe  medications. However, it's only for medications that treat psychiatric conditions, not HRT.)

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.

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.

Transgender Friends

How do trans get to be friends with other trans people? Everyone loves friends, especially friends with whom we share common experiences. But transgender people are a small percentage of the total population. How do you find good transgender friends to hang out with so you can talk HRT, surgeries, or coming out?

Chasers

image_related_articleLeadwide_620x349_1m9nn.png

Who are chasers? Are they as creepy as people say? In this episode we'll dive into the twisted world of chasers, those men who fetishize transgender women and seem to be everywhere on the internet. We'll talk who they are, why they act that way, and most importantly how to deal with them. 

Be sure and check out  urnotalone if you've never been there.  Faith found it to be a great resource back in the day.
