Transgender men are real men

Posted by   + Show Post

I have seen a few posts about transgender people tonight. I have also seen some individuals try and say that a transgender man isn't a real man or is just a woman pretending to be a man. I just wanted to address that. Manhood is not defined by what is between one's legs. It is defined by how one acts and presents oneself. Just like womanhood is not defined by what is between one's legs and/or one's ability to birth children. It is defined by how one acts and presents oneself.

Now if you have questions, I will be more than glad to answer them. I am transgender myself and so is my wife. So I am very aware of the issues surrounding transgender men and transgender women (as well as the other non-binary transgender individuals).

Thank you for the support. And for clarification, I am a female to male individual and my wife is a male to female individual.

I see no problems with her post ... Perhaps you shouldn't open them if you have a problem. It's the intelligent thing to do.

I have a question- is there a difference between identifying as a mother vs. A father?

Thank you for the concern but that was not me. That is another member. I don't have a flicker account. My wife only has like 10 pictures on the internet total and most are protected on her FB account.

Quoting UgtaBkdnMe:

Some bitch in here started a thread about you a few weeks ago. Posted a link to your flicker account, she said she was being nice but she wasn't I was highly irritated.

Quoting purpleducky:

Lol, I do not think I have ever been accused of being too polite or classy before. That is a first.

Quoting UgtaBkdnMe:

You're too polit and classy for this forum :)

Ok, so you were born female and identify as male? What about your wife?



Quoting purpleducky:
