Right on Emily, Daniel, and Jordan! I dig everything you're saying. Myself, I'm wondering if anyone has advice for how to experiment with FTMing without falling into the behavior that a lot of brothers are forced into: you know, all the negative masculine baggage that makes up the manly equivalent of the eating disorders/low self-esteem Emily's talking about. How do you give up the gender you've built your shields up for, and still keep your good stuff protected from the new one? Or, has anyone out there done some work on making up their own gender, cause if you have, please hollar out.
Peace and translove for everyone (especially Jordan), Claire
