But I don't believe people who say they date FTM's or MTF's and respect them as their identified gender, but could never date the 'cis' version because they hate cock or pussy. I just don't buy it. This idea that hey, boys are really hot, but sperm just turns me off too much so I date my local transguy... Eh, seriously? If somebody would like to tell me how this is not a super fucked up or just kind of weird thing to say please do tell.
Very reluctantly, after escalation of the problems a number of the trans communities have been having with posts being leaked via screencaps and posted elsewhere, we, along with many of the trans and trans partners communities have had to set the default for posts to friends only. Hopefully we will be able to change this in the future, but at the moment for the safety of our communities, this is the way things have to be.
Anyone wanting to join the community who has a community only LJ needs to email one of the moderators with both their normal and community on LJ user names. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll let my co-mod add his own email if he's ok with people having it.
I'm sorry we've had to do this, but until we can stop the problem, this is the only way we can safeguard (to the best of our ability) the communities we are responsible for.
There has been a disturbing event happening in some of the trans groups, where a transphobic person has taken screen shots of LJ entries (including friends only ones in other communities) and has posted them on another journal type site. For this reason, I have chosen for now to set new members to moderate(so they will have to talk to me before joining). I can't work out how to set the minimum lj posting in the community to friends only (if anyone knows if this is possible please email me at email@example.com). Basically, all trans groups are currently potential targets, so I'm doing what I can to minimise damage (I don't THINK anything from here has been posted elsewhere, but I can't be sure.
If anyone has any questions, or further information, please feel free to comment, I am going to set this post to filter all comments til I have read them, so let me know if you want yours unlocked when I've read it, otherwise I will leave it locked in the hope that we can continue as the safe and friendly group we have always been. The filter for this ONE post will be private.
Please can you make all posts friends only for now, and if there are any past posts you want to change the settings on, please feel free, I can't do that (that much I could work out from the FAQ's.
I'll assess what to do as I talk more to moderators, some are looking at the drastic step of deleting their entire members list and making everyone go through moderation! Hopefully that won't be necessary here.
(a note that you've read and understood this would also be much appreciated so I know how much of this community I've managed to get the attention of)
This will be a short post.
I was just curious if there are any other transguys on here that are polyamorous except for me. If so, maybe we could be friends or something(?) I have personal trans-and-poly friends, but sometimes they're difficult to get in touch with when I need them.
Any support from you guys (or support in the form of links to trans-and-poly- friendly forums/LJ communities/websites) would be really appreciated at this time.
I will flat out admit I didn't go through any other posts before posting this. But I am wondering if anyone ever feels like they are bleeding when they aren't. I have been on hormones for about 3 years now, but every once in awhile I will get like slight cramps and just a feeling like I am bleeding. But yesterday it was really bad like woke me up and lasted all day I soaked in the bath that night it seemed to help. I am going to attempt to find a place to go see a doctor but I wanted to know if anyone else goes through this at all. So any advice or information anyone could give me would be awesome.
