FtM anatomy: a clit by any other name…

The narrative we’re told about trans people is that they hate the bodies they were born with and want to live as the other sex. Therefore it would be expected that they would want to actually appear to be the other sex, rather than making their birth sex completely obvious, and that they wouldn’t want to use their hated body parts in the usual ways. But for some reason, this is not the case for lots of people currently identifying as trans. For some, it’s good enough to just rename the body parts while continuing to use them the same way anyone else of their birth sex would use them.

This is why we have people identifying as male while giving birth to babies and breastfeeding. You’d think that if someone hates being female and doesn’t want to be seen as female, she’d avoid the most female thing in the universe—pregnancy. But nope! A recent study of 16 trans men who are breastfeeding babies reveals that more than half (nine participants) don’t even get dysphoria while engaging in this timeless tradition of female mammals.

The secret to not getting dysphoria while using your female parts for their female uses is simply renaming. The women in the above study call breastfeeding “chestfeeding,” and apparently this is a strategy that works, since half of them can do it without experiencing dysphoria. (Chestfeeding sounds so creepy though, it reminds me of this.)

All of the female parts have special names for those females who don’t identify as female. Here is a very informative YouTube video where an FtM explains FtM anatomy. She has included some fantastic diagrams that she drew by taking screenshots of a real FtM and tracing over them in Photoshop.

Trans men don’t have genitals, they have “junk.” This is what a trans man’s “junk” looks like.

Nate doggydogg doesn’t say “dick” while explaining this diagram, but from watching many FtM videos lately I can tell you that they normally call the clitoris a “dick” or a “cock.”

So as you can see, an FtM has a mini-dick complete with phallus and bell-end, and by the way, there’s also a pesky hole and some lips down there for some reason too, but let’s not talk about that.

When enlarged by testosterone, the clitoris mini-dick looks like this:

Wondering how big it gets? Four centimeters when flaccid, and 6 centimeters when hard. (And for you crazy Americans that’s 1 1/2 inches to a little over two inches.)

Nate Doggydogg has been watching a ton of FtM porn and she has some very interesting observations.

Very Interesting Observation #1:

“There were only a couple of “guys” who were just about able to penetrate a lady’s “hole”.”

So, most trans men couldn’t penetrate a woman, and only two of them were just about able to. Meaning, those two couldn’t actually penetrate her, they just almost could. In other words, zero trans men that she found in FtM porn were able to penetrate a woman with their enlarged clitoris “T-cock.” The other point I have to make about this is she referred to a vagina as a “hole.” And yeah, that sounds gross, but what I want to say about that is that she also calls an FtM’s hole a “hole.” It’s almost like FtMs and “ladies” have the same hole! Is she bigoted for suggesting that?

Very Interesting Observation #2

“There were lots and lots of videos out there of trans guys being penetrated.”

What?? Why go through all the trouble to make yourself look like a man and make everybody around you pretend to believe you’re a man if you’re still going to get fucked in the vagina?

*headdesk*

At the end of the video, Nate Doggydogg warns her viewers not to watch porn if their parents are around. So she’s assuming her viewers are still young enough to live with their parents, and she’s telling them to watch porn. Awesome! [sarcasm alert].

What are the implications here for what it means to be a trans man? Any FtM who is carrying a pregnancy, getting her ova retrieved for IVF, breastfeeding, or having vaginal intercourse is making it quite clear she is female. If she wanted to be seen as a man, wouldn’t she hide her female biology away, not acknowledge it, not use it, and not let anyone else know it’s there? Wouldn’t that be the logical reaction to hating your femaleness? But apparently not. Some of these people are content to just rename their parts and grow a beard and that’s it. This leaves me with a burning question that I can’t answer: What are women gaining from renaming themselves as not-female while still letting other people know they are female? 

Although I expect that some FtMs out there are actually uncomfortable with their female bodies, there are some who have no problem with pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and vaginal sex. As long as they call it by other names, it’s okay.

What’s that Shakespeare quote again? Oh, yeah.

“A clitoris by any other name is still a sweet organ to have.”

Or something like that.

  1. Is it just me, or does the word hypocrite come to mind with these people? I know delusional, paraphiliac (with the males), traumatised, and so on, all apply, but there’s just something about this that makes me think they’re so full of bullshit.

    Also having an exposed and protruding clitoris looks distinctly uncomfortable wrt scraping on underwear. Ow.

    And seriously, if a woman with an artificially enlarged clitoris is going to call it a penis, I hope she’s not chasing heterosexual women. Because that looks extremely unsatisfactory imo.

  2. Oh Purplesage, you are just TOO MUCH!!!LMAO!!!

    Yeah give me the ole fashioned trans men who done transitioned and LEFT the Dyke communitu, went and got a hysterectomy and NEVER WOULD LET ANY MAN.IMPREGNATE THEM. Cuz men cant and DONT have babies!!!Females do!!

    And guess what? THIS BUTCHDYKE KNEW from age 12 she NEVER wanted a baby, or to marry a man, heck I never wanted hetrosex either…it ALL grossed me out. A clit is a clit is a clit with THOUSANDS of nerves, and in that way it is similar to a penis, but it is SOLELY an Organ of Pleasure, not impregnation, which is why women in conservative Islamic countries have it taken away(sadly). But a clit WILL NEVER BE A PENIS no matter how engorged or large it gets.

    If you are gonna BE a Dude, then BE a Dude, dont claim Female functions are male. Not menstruation, not vaginal sex with men, not impregnation, delivery or breastfeeding your baby…so much delusion and self hate…BE CONSISTENT.

    THEY are saying by their actions us Butch Dykes that NEVER wanted any sperm near us, or babymaking, are truly more machismo than them..and to be machismo, they gotta transition..instead of CLAIMING OUR VERY REAL FEMALE POWER…WITHIN.and with each other!!!

    More crazymaking and illogical everyday!!

  3. Do these women use the opposite terms for their genitals even at the doctor’s? I can only imagine the shock and confusion of a doctor when a patient complains of, e.g., pain in the penis or a suspected infection in there, only to discover that’s not male genitalia at all.

    I’ve seen and heard some of these FTMs claiming metoidioplasty gave them a real but small penis. I even ran across some blog from an FTM and her female partner, with some really creepy, graphic posts about their post-meta sex life, how much pleasure they both get when the FTM gets oral sex from her girlfriend, and their plans for future penetration. I’ve seen pictures of meta, and that in no way looks anything like a normal penis! Testosterone doesn’t grow the clitoris to five or six inches, nor does it does grow by several inches when aroused.

    At least some of them call a spade a spade. The famous Buck Angel (who seems like a really lovely person) doesn’t call his genitals anything but what they are. When he was doing porn, he advertised himself as “the man with a pussy.” It’s really sad how Buck feels doing porn finally gave him a love of his body and self-confidence, after so many years of shame and self-loathing.

  4. I was kind of trying to go along with the renaming of things and bigger clits and trying penetration and all but then you got to the FTM’s in porn being fucked by men and I just …

    Is there no greater signifier of what is wrong with everything? Like women trying so hard – so hard!!! _ to be anything other than what they are and still end up fucked by men. And this FTM is suggesting other trans-identified women watch that? Just make sure their parents don’t hear? Oh my god. Oh my god.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about self-harm lately, and how deep and subtle it runs through the psyche. I just can’t imagine the damage being done.

    • I don’t know. This seems much less offensive to me than all of the “female penis” transgender males. Just thinking about the quality of life of women who were/could have been young lesbians, do I want them to be so disgusted by their female biology that they can’t experience any pleasure? I feel like the person in the video you linked would never even be able to get to the point of talking about sex and genitalia without all of these mental gymnastics.

      And the first place to look for sex-ed or even information on the medical outcome of transition is apparently porn! It’s ridiculous that it is so unquestioned that porn is a neutral reflection of real life. I doubt that women with serious dysphoria would ever do porn, and I doubt that FTMs whose sexual preference is (and remains) other women only would do porn.

      And my god, Nate doggydogg looks about 12 years old, which makes the childlike euphemisms of “downstairs” and “junk” all the more disturbing. She describes the first image above as the “standard anatomy from this angle” – unintentional slip?

  5. Not only is our community hemorrhaging young dykes who’ve decided they are male it’s also losing all the lesbians who get involved with them and have to define themselves as straight despite the obvious reality.

  6. It’s the combination of babytalk and porny language that bothers me. “Junk” combined with “hole”? Really? That’s some creepy shit, especially coming from someone who looks like they’re just getting ready to move on to middle school.

    Also if they’re so obsessed with needing to penetrate people to prove how manly they are can’t they just use a strap-on, or their hands? Because even the least size-queen partner ever is going to have a hard time not laughing at the idea of being penetrated by a whole two inches of pretendy-cock.

    • Yeah I keep wondering to myself whether FtMs are aware that they can already have satisfying penetrative sex without transitioning and if they transition nothing will change in that regard because they still won’t have a penis.

      • Yes, they are perfectly aware of that. It’s just that trans people, not just men but also women are not comfortable, not happy, not confident with how they look physically. Sex is another thing, it is something between you and your partner on how you’ll satisfy each other. You can SOMEHOW compare it with people who had acne for several years, not just a phase but also also during adulthood. It is like you’re perfectly fine, very hygienic but somehow these acne wont go. They’d do anything for them to gain that self esteem boost.
