Look — I'm a homosexual binary trans man who enjoys vaginal penetration with his trans male partner. Sexually, it is my lifeblood. I love it. I'm not dysphoric about it, I've made my peace with it.
I've been out as a trans man for seven years. I've been a member of many trans-focused forums. I've obsessively read about testosterone and its effects for years because I wanted it so badly.
I hadn't seen the word atrophy until sometime around 2014 or 2015. Even then, no one spoke about there being a way to avoid it or treat it. I came across it from trans men who were lamenting the pain they were having, how they couldn't enjoy using that part of themselves sexually anymore...
and they had no idea there was something to be done about it. They didn't mention it. None of the sympathetic responses mentioned it. In fact, a lot of the responses were from pre-T guys who were scared it was gonna happen to them too.
So I too, in turn, had no idea there was something to be done about it, and I too had to resign myself to this pain that would inevitably come because of testosterone.
I thought vaginal penetration was something I'd have to say goodbye to until *MAY 2019*. I didn't realise this could be dealt with until five years later. This year. As an adult. Two fucking months ago.
No one on this god forsaken Earth can tell me I didn't do my research, didn't look in the right corners.
Info about trans men's health on T long term is LACKING.
trans masc culture, lack of visibility, vulgar genital names, possibly dysphoria inducing please be careful
the lack of visibility of trans masc folks i feel has left us behind other kinds of trans folks in terms of how we view ourselves and our bodies. trans fem culture has evolved so much over the past 5 years, embracing the "girlcock" aspect of their culture, loving themselves for their anatomy, coming to terms with it, and thats great! im really happy that folks are able to do that
but trans masc folks dont have that. when was the last time you heard a trans masc person say "boy pussy" or something. especially since our surgeries are less researched, so few people know how they work, and on average have more complications, i feel like the fact that we as a culture are still so ashamed of ourselves shows that we are disconnected from eachother, and this is in large part because we dont have large swaths of trans mascs coming together to validate ourselves. hell, most trans masc people i know didnt even know what T would do to their genitals! maybe its because all of us are too uncomfortable to talk about it, and that fucking sucks. im extremely lucky in having been in obscure trans masc corners for half a decade so i know how this shit works. i hate to feel like our growth and our self love is the same as it was 10 years ago.
A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "um. We apologise for abducting your leader. We did not notice her coming aboard when we were here last week."
A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.

urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.
while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.
