I'm always hearing the negative things about being transgender - 95% of the time I'm really happy with it and there's no dysphoria because I embrace every aspect. I was wondering what makes other people enjoy being trans?

I don't see anything positive about my condition.
COuld you please explain how you are trans if you don't have dysphoria? I don't understand how thats possible

Oh no, I don't mean that I don't have dysphoria, but since I've come out and started to present as male I am so high on life. I guess I might have it easier than others because I pass 99% of the time. I like being transgender though because it gives me a bit of an edge. I spent so many years being depressed that now I'm out I'm like a horse out a box. So happy!

ahh, I understand. When i first started transitioning i felt the same way. I mean, i never liked it but i was just so happy that there was a reason for all the depression and dysphoria (even though i didnt know it was called that then).
I'm glad you can be happy with this. I'm quite jealous actually.

Yeah I totally know what you mean too. I do have my rubbish days, as does every trans person, but I just remember that it's better than how I was before

Personally, I enjoy PIV sex so the one and only thing that makes me 'lucky' to be trans is that I can still transition, be a normal man, get my metoidioplasty and testicular implants and have all my junk fixed up but I can keep that last part so it's not all anal.

After all, a cisguy who wanted a vagina would never be able to get one. A MTF transsexual couldn't get a vagina without getting rid of their penis even if they did want to (I am not saying they would, just saying it doesn't seem to be an option).



In that way, I do have one benefit. Now I do have to take hormones the rest of my life but if the situation were reversed and I was a regular dude and got told I could have a vagina (and knew how much I would enjoy it) if I took an injection every week, I would jump at the chance.



So basically I just consider myself a dude who wishes his dick was bigger (many of us do!) and has something extra special which I do enjoy.

No dysphoria leads me to believe one is not trans.

Oh don't start with the whole 'not trans enough' shit. There's no level of dysphoria that makes you makes you trans. I am a man so screw you. Ever heard of a nOnE trans person? I am no different from any other transgender person, I just don't walk around whining about how I look all the time.

I realize you're frustrated, but this isn't the best way to respond. No one made judgments about you specifically, they were just stating their opinion (and you did ask).

It's like the millionth time I've heard that though. It's hard to not take it personally.

I actually wouldn't have had a problem with your statement if you had left out the "screw you" part. Or, even if you stated in parenthesis that it was a "general you" not "you personally". It's just not cool; respond, don't react.

for me. knowing who i am and being able to see and feel the changes as i go through them, watching my friends and family see the joy i am experiencing and knowing that i am growing into the man i know i am inside.

exactly. finding who you are and bending rules, what people think and just being who YOU are.

very much so. for me, every day gets better and better. the longer i have been on testosterone, the more me i feel. i look forward to having my top surgery because i will be able to wear the clothes and present myself more and more as who i am inside.

You are either trans or not. There is no "trans enough". There is meeting the criteria and thus being trans, or not meeting it, and not being trans.

I think you'll find, if you do more research, that qualification the diagnosing criteria of being transsexual is bodily dysphoria having to do with your primary and secondary sexual characteristics, and not "whining about your body".
