Just thinking out loud…
In the 7+ years since I came out, I have known, or know, several trans men. Of the 5, only 1 is actively in the trans community and another to a small extent. What I’ve seen here seems to be a pretty small percentage compared to trans women. However, the statistics I seen shows roughly a 50/50 split in the trans population.
Given this background, I was surprised to see how the split works out here. What’s the current thinking as to why this is? From what I’ve seen in my community is that the percentage of passable trans men seems to be higher than trans women. The only thing that come to mind for me is perhaps trans men don’t have as much need for camaraderie and support.
The primary question that I would ask is what do you think we trans women could do to support the goal?
While I do acknowledge trans men when they join the site, there isn’t much that I can offer in terms of discussing affirmation surgeries, hormone therapies, binders, etc. On the other hand, I believe the coming out process isn’t really that much different between the groups and because of that, I will share thoughts, offer suggestions and things to think about.
