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.

No. I am a female-to-male individual married to a male-to-female individual.

So you're a woman to male trans who is with another woman to male?

I think it's sad that people feel wrong in their bodies and I think a transgender man is a man. None of my business.

How did you meet?
Is it common for 2 transgendered people to be in a relationship?

Quoting purpleducky:

Correct. My wife was born male and identifies as female.

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







Quoting purpleducky:

Male.

Live your life as you see fit. Shoot call yourself a cat if it floats your boat, but it won't change my mind to the fact that your are a man pretending to be a woman which to me is a lame excuse for being a creeper on a woman's site.

Maybe they mean biologically they will never be male?

I dunno. Honestly, if someone wants to present themselves as a male, act like a male, what have you, I'll consider them a male. Unless they were someone I knew prior to the change, and then it just might take a little bit to get used calling "her" a him.

She has already explained this. If you have such a problem with hop your merry ass out of her post!

If you are such a "real MAN" what the hell are you doing on a site for WOMEN... MOTHERS... FEMALES...

If being a MAN is more than whats between your legs, according to you... get the fuck out of here and stop being a creeper. Because I would have a REAL issue with a REAL MAN being so open on a MOM site.

You mean some of these cuntastic women can use their brain cells to make logical decisions!?! Omg!

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.

Because this is a site for MOTHERS not WOMEN. I am a mom. Mom and male do not have to be mutually exclusive, especially with the variety of families we have nowadays.
