1. Some people just aren't going to pass. What if Dwayne Johnson or Sylvester Stallone wanted to transition(assuming they don't have unlimited money to throw at it. Hehe)? That doesn't mean that a person can't live a fulfilling life though, sometimes some things in life are cruel and hard to accept.

  2. I wouldn't say never. I'm not sure I pass, but I pass MUCH better now that I'm getting to be pretty good at makeup. Being a whole different gender is a lot of work.

  3. Lots of people are responding that phone cameras are to blame, but there's still people who post beautiful selfies here with their phones. Does anyone have advice for how to take a phone selfie that looks good?

  4. Good soft lighting. Soft lighting that illuminates your face completely. Think a light with a lamp shade and not a spotlight centered on your face. Note that you don't want a light so bright that you look like you've been heaven sent, just enough to light your face evenly. Harsh shadows can really call attention to imperfections that people who see you in person might not even notice.

  5. Yay! I wonder if Amazon owes me a percentage of these sales. ๐Ÿค”

  6. love the top! the wing is subtle you could take it a little further if you are feeling brave!

  7. Working on it! I devoted December to getting better at doing it. I'm getting good at the basic wing, but the longer ones are still tough.

  8. wayne goss on youtube is amazing for tips! i have large hoods so need surgery before i can look half as good as you!

  9. As someone who's currently struggling to find a job, if I thought I were pretty enough and had more of a personality for it, yes. Absolutely.

  10. Not sure what the hesitation was, but you look fantastic. Definitely keep it up.

  11. The hesitation is mostly my brain saying: "Hey you, just a little over two years ago you were wearing tshirts and jeans all the time, what are you doing?!" ๐Ÿ˜„

  12. Oh that one. I understand that one. I tell myself that Iโ€™m doing what I always wanted so itโ€™s only me holding me back. But a lot of days itโ€™s insanely hard.

  13. Your life sounds so much like mine right now. Lots of psych meds for anxiety and depression, barely any friends, no significant other, looking for a job but no luck yet, I was talked out of going to college by my dad -- so no education, and I pretty much never go anywhere.

  14. Hehe. I doubt they ever will be. My family are some of the most stubborn people I've ever met.

  15. If you want good girl head pats, then yes. Bad girls get. . . other pats. . .๐Ÿ˜‰โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿคญ

  16. Hehe. I actually didn't even think I was being THAT bad. I didn't know this post would get flagged as NSFW. ๐Ÿ˜†

  17. Unless you were able to get on puberty blockers at a very young age, transitioning "young" doesn't always give you a whole lot of help. I'm sure that my face was more feminine in my teens to twenties, but by the time I was 15 I was already hitting puberty, was 6' tall and starting to grow facial hair. This is why I think those "don't say gay" bills and whatnot are all ridiculous. If a child thinks they might be transgender, they need to be cared for ASAP, otherwise it could mean a lifetime of dysphoria.

  18. I'm definitely putting money to the side for breast/ffs and possibly hair transplant for widows peak if it isn't bad. Still have mixed feelings but a half inch down more would mean less dysphoria then the 6k for the surgery is worth it.

  19. I think "feeling like a woman" is a state of mind, and really depends on individual. Pantihose and shoes that "click" make me feel like a woman, for example. I'm sure everyone else is different.

  20. What other issues could that be? I always would have preferred to be a women. But I dont want to transition. I dont have body disphoria and the risks and sideeffects of transitioning a way too bad for me. And some of my life goals like being a father with a loving wife can only be achieved as a men.

  21. Well I don't know what else there is to say then. If you don't want to transition, then don't transition. We all had to weigh the pros and cons of transitioning before we started on estrogen.

  22. My nails are so fragile after HRT that they tear and break without nail polish on.

  23. Some do some don't. I'm one of the unlucky ones that don't unfortunately.

  24. Just to give you some hope, it only started happening to me recently. I'm 2 years on HRT. It was kind of surprising!

  25. You can do it. One step at a time. You don't have to summon a lot of courage at once. Take little steps and before you know it, you'll have found more courage than you thought you could!

  26. Hi! I've never been to Poland, but my whole dad's side of the family is Polish! I hope you're doing well. You look great!

  27. Anyone else getting serious Edie Brickell vibes from this photo?

  28. I'm sorry you went through that. I'm living with my very unsupportive family right now. When they deadname me or misgender me, it hurts, but I try to twist it around and use it as motivation. If they don't see a woman yet, I'll keep improving myself until they do. Here on translater, we're dumped into learning an entirely new gender at 30+ when most women have had practically that long to learn and practice already.

  29. Thank you! your before picture actually looks really feminine, soooo thatโ€™s good โ€ฆ But anyway, youโ€™re really pretty and look amazing now!

  30. Yeah! I've always been pretty feminine. It caused me a lot of trouble growing up, but I guess it works to my advantage now. ๐Ÿ˜ Thanks so much for the compliment!

  31. I feel like i will spend years doing little things to upkeep my appearance, i dont wanna get fuckin old before i even had a chance to live! But they wont be major things like im having done now, and i will be out by then :) Trust me, i want out of this bullshit guy life. im getting mighty tired of rubes calling me bro, man, guy, buddy, dude, sir, and whatever else all effing day lol. Men REALLY love to let you know what gender they think you are xD

  32. If there's one thing I've learned since coming out and living as a woman, is that most guys are insensitive jerks. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

  33. I mean its on me that they are calling me those things, im making an effort to not look girly or trans atm, i look like the fookin unabomber alot of the time lol. I just notice how often guys use gendered language with other โ€œguysโ€ Im afraid of people thinking im trans, so im hiding until im ready to come out >.<

  34. Oh, I see! Well good luck! It might go better for you then you think. My family ended up being extremely transphobic, but nearly all my friends are supportive! I thought I'd be totally alone if I ever came out.

  35. It's me, the nerdy trans girl on the other side of your phone who wants to tell you that you're amazing too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  36. This is silly. I started transitioning at 36. Adult male? Adult female? When it comes down to it, what do labels even mean? I decided to load my body with estrogen and here I am 2 years later living a much better life. Isn't that the most important thing?

  37. As someone who's currently struggling to present as a woman all the time, there comes a time when you're just going to have to take a leap into the water. You can tip-toe in a little bit at a time, but eventually you're going to have to summon up the courage to go in all the way.

  38. I know, It's just so scary. I am going to be out of the closet this year, I just don't know when. It depends on how long I can hide the changes. It's gonna be a scary year
