I have noticed that the vast majority of photos that come up on my dashboard from genderqueer blogs are AFAB tomboys. I have nothing against tomboys, but I do wonder why AMAB androgyny and genderbending is so overlooked in comparison to AFAB people, even in the genderqueer community.
I have two…
I’ve noticed that white afab trans or genderqueer people are usually recieved better.
This group was created because well I didn’t see one for transmasculine, masculine of center, non binary, bois of color. Most of the time your gender identity and race intersect or just plain collide. I wanted a space to be able to talk about the gender issues in a safe space that understands my race is just as interconnected to my experience.
This group is for anyone on that Female to “Male”/ Masculine spectrum that is a POC. POC is defined as someone is not wholly white, mixed race is fine.
Even if you still identify as Female but feel that you are a masculine of center person you are welcome here. Gender expression does not need to be masculine to be apart of this group. Just know the focus of the group is for support, advice, and a space to discuss dysphoria that may come from being any aspect of trans masculine/ masculine of center.
The wiki definition of transmasculine is below:
Transmasculine is a term used to describe those who were assigned female at birth, but identify as more male than female. Transmasculine is often used as a catch-all term for all people assigned female at birth who identify as masculine of center, including trans men, but the adoption of the term as an identity is a matter of personal preference. Those who identify as transmasculine, as opposed to simply as FTM or a man, trans or otherwise, often place themselves masculine of center- that is, they identify more closely with maleness than femaleness, and generally desire a physical appearance that reflects this identification, but do not identify as wholly male or as a man. This identity is similar to that of a demiguy in that demiguys often identify with maleness or masculinity, but only partially. It should be noted that transmasculine is not a descriptor of gender expression but of identity. Transmasculine people do not necessarily have to be stereotypically masculine in their interests or even presentation.
Again welcome all butches, bois, trans men, transmasculine, non binary, masculine of center, ags, neutrois, genderqueer, etc.
Beat it up, smash it, murder it, murk it or any of those things to your bussy or coochie BELIEVE HIM *maya Angelou voice* If that’s what you want then gone shawty. But if not beware those are violent terms for sex. Sex shouldn’t=violence (if that’s not what u want)
When everyone holds their Trans* Day of Remembrance vigil this month, please don't forget about CeCe McDonald. She's in prison right now for fighting back & surviving a brutal attack that could have put her on this very list. We need to show support for our sister.
Society has a lot of expectations and stereotypes about people of color. These ideas vary depending on race, location, and gender. I’ve found a huge difference in the way I am treated now. This was something I was not prepared for.
I read a lot about the differences I might experience when…
I’m a danger. I kinda felt the same experiences even before transition however now people don’t take a second look, they assume and know i’m a danger.
People try to test my aggression esp. when I’m with my kids which is a big no-no because I’ll hurt you over my kids and that hasn’t changed.
I now continue to watch how much space I take up and other people’s safety zones. Its weird because before being perceived as a masculine female I was expected to make space so I just alway have. Also people in my neighborhood just don’t really like black people male or female or undecided (too them anyway). We are all angry and black. My wife is a femme to a tomboy and gets some of the same treatment except they want to sexually harass her as well (she does muay thai so not too smart.)
