I was getting really frustrated with it constantly saying “her” even though I didn’t have my gender shown in my profile, and this video showed me how to change it. :]

MI Republican Introduces Anti-Trans Prisoner Bill →

Representative Hooker’s bill is ill-conceived and is yet another attack on the gay and transgender population of Michigan by this Legislature. To the best of my knowledge, only one other state — Wisconsin — has ever passed such a bill and the federal courts struck it down as unconstitutional. Lawmakers should not be in the business of legislating medical care and should not be substituting its judgment for that of the medical profession in such matters. For Representative Hooker to dance to the tune played by Mr. Glenn, the head of an organization labeled as a hate group by the Southern Law Poverty Center is the very antithesis of the “common-sense” he purports to be exercising. I extend an offer to Mr. Hooker to meet with me and discuss this issue in greater detail.”

Judge apologizes to inmate seeking transgender surgery →

cheesenippz:

Michelle Kosilek, a convicted murderer, first sued the Massachusetts Department of Correction 11 years ago. Two years later, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled that Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender-identity disorder, but stopped short of ordering surgery to complete Kosilek’s physical transition.

Kosilek sued again in 2005, arguing that the female hormones she was receiving were not enough to relieve her anxiety and depression. Kosilek argued that the surgery was a medical necessity and that the Department of Correction was violating her constitutional rights by refusing to provide the operation.

totossandturn asked: I'm girl, but I still like guys, but I want to be a guy. So technically I'm a gay guy stuck in a girl's body. What's the term for this, if there is one?


Answer:

As humans we attempt to use labels to explain the world around us. It is difficult to assign anyone a label if they do not first believe it to be true in their own hearts and minds. With that being said, it appears that you have a ftm trans* identity meaning then your gender is male even though your sex remains female. Who you are attracted to has nothing to do with your gender. Essentially you are a gay man just as you said. 

It is easy to forget  that sex, gender, orientation, and expression are all entirely different and unrelated aspects of who we are as people and no one label can really express all of those nuances.  I like to use the genderbread person  to explain it to people:

Good luck and I hope this helped.

Trans wedding in Cuba highlights growing tolerance →

In a development considered unthinkable just a few years ago, a transgender woman and a man identifying himself as gay were married in a public wedding in Havana on Aug. 13, with family members, friends and newly emerging gay activists attending the ceremony.

“This is the first wedding between a transsexual woman and a gay man,” the 31-year-old groom, Ignacio Estrada, told the Associated Press. “We celebrate it at the top of our voices and affirm that this is a step forward for the gay community in Cuba,” the AP quoted Estrada as saying.

German teenager Kim Petras has become the world’s youngest operated  transsexual after undergoing a surgery at the age of just 16. The  procedure – carried out in secret and paid for by the German health service – was authorised after psychologists confirmed that she was “without  doubt a girl in a boy’s body”.  It is the world’s youngest ever full sex  change operation and Kim had been undergoing hormone therapy since the age of 12. Kim  overcame years of taunts and bullying to achieve her dream of becoming a  girl and has begun a modelling career and launched a CD. Kim, who is now studying fashion design, began calling herself a girl when she was just two years old.

lucywallace:

Your eyes peer through the dress,
Down my chest, between my legs,
Through the pores to the genetic secret
Hidden between layers of color and disguise.

You see, I’m a bit of a chameleon.
Most days I see what others do so I change to see
What I want.
What I am not surrounded by, inverted…

For Transgender Triathlete, a Top Finish in New York Is Secondary


After finishing in Central Park on Sunday, participants in the New York City Triathlon will huddle around the results pages, analyzing split times and category rankings.

Chris Mosier, 31, will not be among them.

Mosier is transgendered and will be competing in the triathlon for the first time as a man. In 2009, he completed the 1.1-mile swim, 25-mile bike and 6.1-mile run in 2 hours 39 minutes, good enough for 27th place in the women’s 25-29 category. Now racing in the men’s 30-34 field, one of the most competitive in the race, Mosier says he will be lucky to finish in the middle of the pack. Instead of focusing on results, Mosier said, he just wants to enjoy racing his peers
