I'm already quite androgynous, but I'll like some of the benefits of estrogen (smoother skin, fat distribution)

I want to pass as more of a girl whenever I want to.

I'm also confident being a guy. Don't mind already looking a bit girly, so fuck it, I want to have fun while I can still pass as a trap. I'm 20 so my clock is ticking. Are there any longterm negative effects with estrogen? Is there such a thing as "casual" hormone treatment? (Maybe home-made remedies that aren't as extreme)

My main concern is probably the...

Any estrogen you'd be taking is bio-identical, so it'll only have as many longterm negative effects as people naturally running on estrogen have, i.e. nothing that hasn't been well-documented.

You can take low doses of estrogen and AA's, or better yet estrogen and a DHT inhibitor to get a more neutral hormone balance without totally vacating the testosterone from your body.

There shouldn't be any real risk of mental issues as long as you keep a decent level of hormones in your body.

If you use your dick it'll stay in fine working...

When I'm horny or just feel like I want to cum I like putting on music videos were the women are pretty and dressed slutty. I can't really jerk off to it unless my in goes into thinking about other men's body(especially their cocks, and good physique). I'm pretty sure I've managed to fetishize women by thinking about other men, because i really only became interested in about the opposite gender by watching porn( remember getting really horny when I saw the mens flaccid penis in those first porn flicks I saw.

Since I've been a repressed homosexual...

That has nothing to do with my sexuality or sexual urges. Why are people trying to shill gender dysphoria onto other gay/confused people?

I don't get off on thinking of myself as a woman. All I want is to get leaner and stronger.

Is it possible to be gay and be attracted to the opposite sex?
I've accepted that I am gay and my family accepted that ever since I came out when I was 16. But recently there's this girl whom I can't stop thinking about. I enjoy spending time with her and want to be close with her the same way I have desired my ex boyfriend. This is the only time I have been attracted to a female but I feel it is more intense that any attraction I have felt for males.

I know I am friendzoned (gayzoned?) because she knows I'm gay and it will be awkward if all of...

Why are transsexuals so obsessed with being uber-sex goddesses? Every one I talk to on here wants to have sex 24/7 and shamelessly wants to be a 10/10 big titties no imperfections slut.

I don't really think that there are that many people on here like that. Sex is nice, and looking attractive is nice and makes you feel more feminine and helps with dysphoria...

I think most would be happy with being 7/10s who have sex maybe a couple to few times a wee, and that's pretty normal I think.

Complete integration has now occurred, which has allowed my feminine aspect to be seen and related to as a particular individual who possesses both positive and negative qualities. The most important aspect of this final level is that, as the personification of "Wisdom" suggests, my anime is now developed enough that no single object can fully and permanently contain the images to which it is related. I am finally free. I am finally... me.

It's almost impossible to find on the net. Trying to not be an ugly fat tranny so I need to do this right. All I find is eating disorder blogs and information telling me not to do it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I know the idea is just "don't eat". But for how long? How much is unsafe?

Or you could eat right and excercise WITHOUT endangering your health both mentally and physically.

>>5689478
Just not eating is silly.

Find your BMR. That will be a rough estimate to how much many calories your body needs to not panic and fuck itself up. Eat that much. That's how many calories your body needs to maintain itself assuming you're bed-ridden.

Then exercise. All the calories you burn from exercise will be your calorie deficit. Because it's your BMR, exercise includes everything including from your everyday walking.
