My identity

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 14:10:19

I self identify as a self identified transgender woman. I feel in my heart that is what I am.

I have had no surgery nor taken any artificial hormones.

Unfortunately this means that I am not in possession of a female penis sad

I believe that self identified trans women that were born biologically male have all the privilege as trans women. Trans women like me can only dream of having a female penis, being good at sports and having our rights recognised.

Therefore I would like to suggest that safe spaces are provided for me, spaces where I don't have to see female peni.

I would also like to be addressed with the correct pronouns (She/Her).

Anyone that disagrees with me is transphobic. This is my right to identify as I choose and demand fair and equal treatment.

I am a self identified transgender woman.

Surely, it would trigger your dysphoria to see a penis?

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 14:21:05

Yes it would.

SweetGrapes Tue 06-Feb-18 14:25:24

What's your opinion on the male peni? It that also triggering?

Cooking pasta tonight... probably penne....

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 14:34:13

No, the male version is not triggering at all.

With a nice creamy sauce?

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 14:40:38

That's transphobia right there. Talking about carbonara whilst I'm pouring my heart out.

I'm sorry to hear about the continued deprivation of your rights. In fact, as a result of reading a little bit about you online, you have convinced me that I am also a self identified transgender woman who is lacking a female penis sad

Is there room in your safe space for me too?

HonkyWonkWoman Tue 06-Feb-18 16:21:17

I'm sorry to naive! But what is a female penis?

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 16:25:42

OlennasWimple welcome, I wondered if it was just me.

OlennasWimple Tue 06-Feb-18 16:28:44


By the way, you're so brave. Go girl!

TinyRick Tue 06-Feb-18 16:31:52

This is a cracking read.

Missymoo100 Tue 06-Feb-18 16:32:34

Can you explain what female penis is? I don't understand is that MtF?

SweetGrapes Tue 06-Feb-18 16:34:01

Honky! Welcome to the feminist boards! I take it you haven't been here for a year or so. smile

Read any of the many trans threads and you should figure it out. smile

SweetGrapes Tue 06-Feb-18 16:34:44

Yup also called TIM (Trans identifying males)

OlennasWimple Tue 06-Feb-18 16:34:55

A female penis is a penis attached to a woman's body.

Unfortunately transtranwoman and I don't have those sad

Missymoo100 Tue 06-Feb-18 16:39:08

So what would you like to see change to ensure fair and equal treatment?

transtranswoman Tue 06-Feb-18 16:43:49

I would like safe spaces where I can change, access healthcare or support away from privileged trans women. And probably men too tbh.
I can't control my jealousy around female peni and therefore feel it is transphobic to even make me think about them.
I have the right to exist as I see fit and to tell me otherwise is hate speech.

are you cooking penne because you ran out of this?

Riverside2 Tue 06-Feb-18 16:45:51

MissyMoo - some people claim that you can be a woman and have a penis - because being a woman is about how you feel, not your biology.

this often has a connection to wearing dresses and makeup and so on.

AllMyBestFriendsAreMetalheads Tue 06-Feb-18 16:48:49

That thread is a total headfuck.

Some amusing face-palm moments though.

AllMyBestFriendsAreMetalheads Tue 06-Feb-18 16:49:23

Oops, x-post.

Missymoo100 Tue 06-Feb-18 16:50:54

Away from privileged trans women- I'm confused I thought you were a transwomen?
What do you think would be adequate in terms of safe spaces?
What do you think is lacking with current medical help available to you?
Thanks river side I get mixed up with it

CallMeAstroTerf Tue 06-Feb-18 16:53:31

I am also a self-identifying transtranswoman but I am trying to self-id as a ciswoman. Woman-only spaces are triggering because of the female peni, transwomen spaces are triggering because of the hairspray fumes and manginas. Everyone is so transtransdesisting-phobic towards me and my mum hates me as well and refuses to call me Tiddles (my gender-neutral name).
thanks for everyone feeling my pain

If you are transwomen minus surgery- why are you "not in possession on female peni"?
