Re: Friend with Benefits, turned crush...

Before you start getting too invested in working out living arrangements for him - has he expressed an interest/comfort in living with you and your grandmother while he goes to college? Have you two talked about this or are you just thinking of trying to offer it? And is he thinking couch surfing wh...

Re: Fictional Crushes Affecting Relationship

Hi, wintersolstice! I agree with Sam W that they way you're categorizing your attraction could be helping to cause this split for you. I may be totally off base here, but you mention that you have used these fictional crushes as a coping mechanism in the past. It might also help for you to explore t...

Oh, wow. I'm... so sorry to hear that, CaptainWildRose. It sounded like your sister had been initially accepting, but now you're forcing yourself to go back into the closet even to yourself. =( How did you feel during this conversation with your sister?

Re: Trans, nonbinary, or something else?

I'm glad you could relate to my experience, easternstar! I think it's a pretty common one that unfortunately just doesn't get talked about much, and as such, so many people are left feeling alone and left out. Have you searched around facebook and meetup.com for any other local queer/trans groups in...

Re: Is little to no pleasure normal?

If it's okay, may I ask - Are you masturbating and looking for a BAM moment of pleasure because you want to/you're horny and want to take care of it this way OR because that's what you've read/society has told you that you should do and that's how you should feel?

Gender expression =/= gender! You can totally be a feminine trans boy, tiediedragon! That's extremely valid! As Sam W said, a lot of the times trans folk are expected to hyperconform to binary gender standards. It's extremely unfair and incorrect. There's a piece on Into I think you might really dig...
