      Depends on where you start. My mental state was pretty fucked before, and while I can’t say my self confidence is amazing, you shoulda seen it then. Definitely not for everyone, tho.

      • Yeah, after I posted I realized it probably meant that transitioning to your identified gender improved your mental health, not that girls are more mentally healthy. Same with self-image. I left it because, wiggle-room.

      Baby-Transfem here, started HRT literally last week:

      Until last friday I was suicidal, constantly depressed and full of self-hate I couldn’t understand.

      Since I got my first dose estrogen my mental health drastically improved (as did some other hormone-related body functions that only need the hormones in my blood but not necessarily a prolonged exposure).

      I learned from my doc that some transpersons have a brain structure of their non-assigned sex and then show exactly my pattern of relief; meaning my brain was actually born to be estrogen- instead of testosterone-dominated. (which seems to be based on the hormones oned mom exposed one during 3-4th and 10-14th week of infancy. One periods influences the gender of the brain, the other the sex of the general body)

      So while I see where you are coming from, and I heavily prepare myself for all the sexism that will probably bring me back to earth as soon as I visually feminize; I can attest that HRT improved both drastically for me (for now)

        You are on a hair trigger, friend. No one’s trying to reject you or hurt you.

        Your meme didn’t land with some of us, that doesn’t make you any less valid.

        The meme implies the list of benefits simply comes with being a woman, not just from transitioning as a trans person.

        If you’re trans, every step of transitioning to your real gender is a real improvement to your life and health.

        But if you’re not trans, or are trans, but FtoM or just look at it a little different…

        The meme is rubbing people the wrong way because it mixed up the improvements that come from transitioning as a trans person, with being a woman being better than being a man.

        If you were assigned male and transitioned or started transitioning to female, of course your life and health will be better!

        But you accidentally implied being a woman automatically solves a bunch of problems that women absolutely can and do still have, and that the problems men have are caused by them being men.

    This gives a very specific kind of trans woman vibe and I don’t think I like it. I think it’s the “angry masculine mannerisms” that is bothering me. Masc / butch trans women exist too, and it feels weird to imply only men get angry. This seems to simplify and put into a box what being a trans woman is.

    Edit: also HRT affects everyone differently and to act like it makes everyone cute and small and feminine is misleading. Being trans is exhausting sometimes and takes a lot of work, and some may never fit this description regardless of how hard they try.

    Edit 2: I’m a trans woman myself and I’m nearly 99% sure OP is just a troll at this point. If not, she’s seriously making herself look like a moron.

                If she hadn’t gone from 0 to 100 because of my very light criticism then maybe I’d be a bit more friendly. Her reaction set me off and I know I’m not in the wrong here. Fucking claiming I’m a cis man is a good way of pissing me the fuck off.

                I’m in a long term committed relationship with another woman. But go off about how I’m somehow a “pick me”. At least I’m not the one telling gender non-conforming trans women that they aren’t “real women” because they might be more masc than your ideal 100% fem and perfect trans woman. 🙄 I’ve also seen your other comments and my gosh you reek of transmed bullshit. You truly don’t understand the damage you are doing by posting dumb shit like this and it’s depressing as fuck.

              Don’t compare cracking someone’s egg to conversion therapy, they are not the same, cracking people’s eggs saves lives, it frees them from denial and allows them to be happy as their authentic self. Conversion therapy tries to force people deeper into denial. This is such a rotten and transphobic argument.

                You are not the arbiter of who is or is not trans. You are free to help someone come to the realization that they may be trans, but do not invalidate their identity in the process.

                Gender expression is a spectrum, and just because someone isn’t 100% gender conforming doesn’t automatically make them trans.

                  It is not invalidating their identity it is helping discover who they really are, helping them come out of the egg and break the denial that prevents them from being their most legitimate selves.

                  Conversion therapy is transphobia, transphobia isn’t an opinion, calling transphobia an opinion is like calling arsenic a flavor. I’m not trying to bend anyone to anything, I’m just pointing out that they’re dressing like a girl, and acting like a girl, put two and two together and you can see where that’s going. Is this really that hard for people to understand?

                Not everyone is trans, homesicle. If I take a long hard look at my gender and decide that I’m happier as the man I was born than as a woman, that’s my business. Trying to force me into a female body would make me just as miserable as your male one was for you.

                Also I couldn’t help but notice that you seem to conflate anger as a concept with masculinity.

            In another comment you clearly stated that femboys are not the same thing as trans.

            And now you want to push the transfem label onto a non-afab person just because they admit to wear gender-non-conforming clothes?

              No I said we aren’t femboys, we are women. If someone claims to be a boy and dresses fem it’s clear they aren’t entirely cis, if they were such act would give them unbelievable gender dysphoria and discomfort.

                Sounds for me like:

        Sure, you can jump gender if you feel like it, but you’re replying to a person who transcended those silly boundaries without immediately constraining themselves to a different one. I suspect they are next level happy.

          They are constraining themselves to a gender though, they’re stuck in the idea that they have to be a man because they were born male. That’s not true though, people can be a woman regardless of what they were born as. They say they’re happy now but they would be so much happier if they stopped limiting themselves and realized they can live comfortably as a woman.

    The same thing could be achieved by self reflection, developing emotional intelligence, and doing the work to improve as a man! That way hostile masculine feelings can be calmed.

    Nothing wrong with becoming a cute girl if that’s what will bring you gender euphoria.
