Me at Calgary Pride 2012, marching with TESA (The Trans Equality Society of Alberta).
Yes, I made the sign. You can’t see it, but the letters are all glittery!
Don’t be alarmed, I didn’t cut my hair off, it’s in a ponytail! =)

We recently discovered why we’ve been seeing an asterisk next to “trans” so we decided to send out a post that explains it. Check out this picture and visit ItsPronouncedMetrosexual.com.
The word “transvestite” should not be in this. It’s a derogatory and offensive term.
The proper term is “crossdresser”. I’m shocked that it’s not even on there.
Good effort though.
EDIT: Also, I really don’t think the term should not be right next to transsexual. In my opinion, it sends the wrong message to people who know nothing about the trans* community.
My 10 year highschool reunion is coming up, so I put this together, for my classmates who are on facebook and may stumble upon my profile on the facebook group and wonder who I am. It’s a lot easier than explaining!
I graduated in 2002, and it’s now 2012.. but these were the best photos I could find for a comparison.
This is the cutest thing ever!
And of course I can also relate.
Hey guys, Dominic here.
I’m a 29 year old femme FTM.
In light of the recent ignorant anonymous comment, I thought I would share this video I made a year ago, about what makes a person a man.
I go into society’s definition of what a “man” is, and define what I think makes a person a man, or simply, male.
[Video footage used:
Scatterheart performing “more than a man” in Fall 2009, and Spring 2010.. and a scene from a movie called “Victor/Victoria” from 1982, featuring Julie Andrews as Victor/Victoria.. a struggling soprano singer who makes it big when she pretends she is a gay male, and takes a job as a female impersonator.]
“More than a man” by Scatterheart, of course.

My trans-related Tumblr:
Hope you all get something out of this video, and remember there is no wrong way to be a man. Or any other gender, for that matter ;)
Thanks! That means a lot coming from you!
lol @ YouTube comment:
“wtf r u doing to yourself your a girl not a guy chemicals cant change that…ur a mess”
Oh yes, because that’s TOTALLY how it works! Oops.. I’ve already been on testosterone for four years and I chopped off my boobs and had my reproductive organs scooped out.. shit! Whatever am I going to do?! I’m such a mess!
Don’t know if this is allowed but
I met this amazing transman on Omegle and just as I was going to ask them if they had facebook, tumblr, or anything we could keep contact on it disconnected because I lost my net connection due to a storm. I really, really enjoyed speaking with this person and this was the only place I could think of to possibly run into them so I decided to post this.
I myself am a transman and to better help this person find me if they follow this blog we spoke of cosplay, dir en grey, Asagi from the band D, sewing, singing and guitar, the fact we’re both demisexual, and things similar to that. I know the fact I’m going out of my way to find this person may seem creepy, but this is how much I enjoy speaking with this person and I have never had so much in common with someone before.

Thank you for your time.
If you’re trans* too, why can’t you use male pronouns when referring to this guy? =/
Unless of course he prefers gender neutral pronouns.. but you really went out of your way to avoid using male pronouns.. why?
Wearing my hair in a samurai ponytail a lot lately.

FTM TELEVISION HACKED. ALL VIDEOS GONE.
FTM Television was “hacked” today (our account was somehow compromised).
All of our videos were deleted, and the password was changed twice.
We don’t know who did this or how it happened.
I was able to regain access to the account and change the password because the recovery email is my personal email address.. but all videos are gone, and we don’t know if we can get them back. We are absolutely heartbroken.
To our subscribers, we are so sorry. We are trying to see if there’s any way we can have our videos restored. Hopefully it’s possible.
If you are transgender/gender variant or an ally (but especially transgender or gender variant in any way), please fill out this survey for me!
Problematic and discriminatory comment from someone WITHIN the FTM community (TW)
“No, actually. Being comfortable with one’s genitalia has nothing to do with gender identity. Some transmen — MANY, actually, are comfortable with what they’ve got between their legs and use it for sexual gratification, and it DOESN’T make them any less male. Your biggest problem is that you equate physical sex with gender. That’s the kind of bullshit cisgender people say to us. When you say shit like this, or have these kinds of views, you’re oppressing people in your OWN community.”

FTMtv week 36 - Dominic - Shit non-trans people say
Here’s my week 36 video (finally)!
Week 36’s topic is offensive things cisgender (or non-trans) people say.
In this video, I go into some of the things people said to ME when they found out I was trans..
in the most unique way.. I play 4 different characters!! This video was SO much fun to make, and definitely worth a watch!
FTMtv week 38 - Dominic - Coming out (revisited) with special guests!
It’s week 38 on FTM Television, and this week’s topic is coming out.
The video footage in this video was actually recorded back in August of 2011 for week 6. My week 6 video was late at the time as it was.. and I never ended up posting it. Well, here it is now. Revisiting old topics gives me the chance to catch up! ;)
Anyway, this video is really long, however, when you watch it, it doesn’t seem that long for some reason.
The interviewer guy in my video is my good friend Milo, who is actually a sub now on FTMtv.. but now has way less hair and a way deeper voice!
The adorable little blonde kid in this video is his.
The ickiest YouTube comment I ever received
“What confuses me is that you were once a woman who wanted to become a man. And a true man likes to play with boobs! You had the perfect thing going on. You are a man inside obviously and you had unlimited access to a nice pair of soft squishy boobies and a pussy to play with. Now you have to go out and hunt for that. Unless of course you want to be a man so you can be with another man. But to each their own I always say.
Do you miss the boobies at all?”
I was looking through old youtube comments and found this one.
There are so many things wrong with this comment..
Doesn’t reading it just make you feel icky?
