TRANSPRIDE
Thanks everyone for the naming help. vuv It means a whole lot and is very helpful. They're all super cool. Oddly enough, Stephen was actually my grandpa's name. c: I'm finiding myself stuck between Soren, Sonny, and Sorley.

REMINDER TO OUR FOLLOWERS

Transpride went on hold over a year ago, because most of the moderators simply had too many other things going on and left the blog. Since then, many other huge trans blogs have sprung up and are much more active.

Transpride is still up because there is a lot of good content and a lot of question and answer posts that could be helpful to people. But we are not posting new content, and don’t check the Ask Box as frequently as other trans blogs out there.

Additional things to be aware of:

  • Please do NOT use the “fan mail” function—we cannot post those messages.
  • If you need any immediate or personal help, or want input from other people in the community, please check the #ftm #mtf #genderqueer and other tags on Tumblr for a blog that is more active.

We recently passed 10,000 followers—a huge milestone! We’re glad that this blog is still helpful for so many of you, and hope that you understand where we’re coming from with the indefinite hiatus.

Soren is a good switch of Sophie.

Another suggestion:

Sophocles is an awesome boy-version of Sophie, and an awesome name in general. Or maybe Sorley or Sonny.

Stephen could be an alternate to Sophie, but that's all I could really think of.

I can not, for the life of me, figure out a male name I would want instead of my birth name (Sophie). Any advice or help on that?

Hi I was wondering if there was any website for transgender female-male my Girlfriend stuffs her pants and I was wondering if you know of any site that would have like strap ons and stuff like that I would like to get her something kinda realish so she could feel better thanks T

Most places that sell toys (Smitten Kitten, Early2Bed, Babeland, etc.) sell soft packers, mostly made of silicone and coming in three sizes, 3” 4” and 5” are the most common. Hope that helps!

Hi, I'm one month on T and from a singing/vocal coach background so have put up some vlogs on my Tumblr and youtube accounts of vocal exercises to strengthen and clarify the FTM spoken and singing voice. The submit button didn't work so have put it in here...

We closed submissions since this blog isn’t being run anymore—one of us still moderating occasionally answers the asks or reblogs something but that’s it.

Hey, my name's Skylar Logan. I'm 18 years old trans gay guy , pre-T/pre-op (starting T in late August/early September hopefully), and will be attending NYU this fall. I got my roommate assignment a little while ago. I was able to put my sex as gender identity male and get a male roommate, which I'm excited about. I was wondering what your opinion was: should I come out to my roommate before we move in and how should I do this/what should I say? Thanks and hope everyone is having a great summer.

Sorry this took so long to get to! I hope you found a good solution.

For others in this boat, I suggest coming out in advance, before arriving to campus. That way if the reaction is hostile you can request a room change and hopefully your university will deal with it. If you’re not ready to come out that soon, let them know when you feel comfortable. Some people don’t ever come out to their roommates. It’s very personal and the main thing to consider is—why do you feel the need to come out? What would the roommate gain from your coming out? What would change if you come out?

I'm only 15 but have been feeling really uncomfortable in my skin for a while. I see guys and I get really jealous of everything that they are, basically. I dress like a guy on a regular basis, in fact, last time I wore anything even slightly feminine was because my mom forced me to for her wedding, and I just wanted to hide the entire time. I'm not really certain if I am transgender just because I don't have much experience with that kind of thing. I guess I'm just waiting for confirmation...

That’s definitely something a lot of trans people can relate to, but of course if you are or aren’t is only something you can know. If you’re unsure, just know that it’s OK to wait. Lots more trans people transition while young, but you don’t have to. Everyone’s path is different and it’s OK if yours involves some more time to introspect and figure out what these feelings mean for you and what to do with them. Please don’t feel any pressure to transition—there are many cis people who are also uncomfortable with aspects of gender, and many people who fall in between cis and trans.
