Help Eden become more trans inclusive/respectful!

While Eden is quite trans-friendly already (especially more than other sex toy sites), there's some things the trans community here would like to see changed.

Something I've seen a few times already; the "trans forum" is called Transgendered Issues, which many people agree isn't an accurate term. Possibly "Transgendered" could be replaced with "Trans*" or some other word that the EF trans community agrees on. I'm not terribly picky about this sort of thing so I shouldn't be the one to decide on the wording Also, personally I think the "Gender Friendly" section is a bit confusing, and should be renamed something like "Gender Play" or "Gender Expression", I'm not sure how many agree with me on that though. I don't find "Gender Friendly" offensive at all, just a bit strange

There is a decent sized trans community on Eden now, a lot of them are asking for things like binders, breast forms (both of which can be used for crossdressers and costumes as well as for transfolk, so the audience is less limited), more packers (I personally think the Mr.Limpy and Mr.Right are a fine selection but as the FtM/transmasculine community here grows, it might be nice to see more options, especially ones like the Mr. Right that are good quality and come in different skin tones), tucking underwear (again, meant for transwomen but can be used for crossdressing as well), and trans related literature (such as the quickly discontinued book link) and porn/erotica.

I think binders would be a really great addition, especially since EF already carries packing supplies. FtMs, transmasculines, genderqueers, tomboys, and other female-bodied folk who wish to have flat chests would really love them, I don't see why Eden would be opposed to carrying them since they already have packers as long as there was people who would buy them. Same with tucking underwear and breast forms, if Eden carries RodeoH harnesses why not tucking underwear?

While many FtMs on the site have been asking for pack-and-pees (Packers that have a tube to urinate through), I don't really agree that they should be on Eden as they're quite the specialty item, and I have a suspicion that they'd need to be FDA approved (which is why the LELO Lily Cup isn't here).

If you have more suggestions on how Eden can be more trans friendly, post it!

All are very valid points. I've passed this on to our product manager and one of our developers. If you all will weigh in on what you want to name the subcategory, I'll submit the request to get it changed as soon as possible.

This is a really good post, very well thought out! I always thought the 'gender friendly' section was a bit confusing; what's the rest of Eden, gender hostile?

I also think that it would be awesome to carry some things for MTF people, since Eden already caters to Trans people with packers and harnesses. While it doesn't have to be super extensive, a few things would be nice, especially for people just getting 'into it.'

Awesome post! Sorry I don't have much to add, other than "Yeah!"

AHahha my partner made a similar joke when he first saw the "Gender Friendly" title XD

Definitely, I know a few people have suggested things in the Eden Should Carry threads for MtFs but I haven't seen anything stocked. I think my next blog post will be encouraging MtFs to join Eden

GONE! GONE!
More stuff for trans* women is definitely needed. I understand why we have packers and nothing else on one hand since those are made by manufacturers that Eden already carries the entire product line of, but things like tucking panties would fit perfectly well in the lingerie section.

I like the idea of including tucking panties. I think that that would be a huge sale, not only with MtF individuals but anyone who likes the feeling of being beautiful in a woman's panties and doesn't want their penis flopping out. There does seem to be a disproportionate amount of FtM products to MtF products, but that may be because, like Gold Lion said, they're the same manufacturers that make Fleshlight and the likes.
