Since I've noticed everyone seems to be giving them and wanted to get in on the action.

I'm Nathaniel (Nate for short), sixteen years old, living in Murrieta, CA. I haven't been identifying as trans for a terribly long time... )

I always find these things hard, so I'll go back to re-posting something I wrote a couple of years ago. Behind a cut, for tl;dr.

The Alchemical Boy )

Not much has changed since then, unfortunately. Husband still unsupportive, still no nearer to the dream of transition, though it's still on my mind pretty much every single day.

I'll probably end up introducing myself again after the site goes to open beta and there are a few more members, but I figured the couple of you who've joined already should get a chance to know who's running the comm.

My name is Nicky, I'm a 23 year old cosmetology student and I'm from San Francisco, CA (though I currently live in Washington, DC). I came out as trans when I was just past 20, started T about six months after that, and have been living mostly stealth for the past two years.

I'd like this community to become a resource for transmen, allies, and those who are questioning. Because not everyone is a gender studies major I'd like to ask that we not attack people for a simple mistake. We all started off on this without knowing much (if anything), I think it's important to give people a chance to learn rather than shouting at them to look everything up themselves.

This means that I'm not going to be the language gestapo. If you're offended by something someone has said go ahead and tell them POLITELY. Be prepared to back up your feelings, not everyone agrees with what is offensive and what isn't (see: queer). I'm not going to ban people for debating (lord knows I do it), but I will give out warnings for open attacks. Three warnings and you're gone, I don't have the patience to deal with people who can't argue civilly.

Please, no genderqueer issues in here. I know that a lot of times they overlap, but I'd like this community to maintain a more narrow focus. [community profile] polygender seems to be the genderqueer resource on DW and I've opened up [community profile] transgender for all people on the trans* spectrum.

By the same token, this is an ALL AGES community so keep the explicit stuff on [community profile] ftm_adult. I don't want this community to be screened, especially not when the youngest of us are often the ones who need the most support.

Really I'm pretty laid back. I prefer everyone act like adults simply because it means I don't have to be the bad guy, I hate being the bad guy. Play nice, stay on topic, and we'll all get along just fine.
