I hate how it's thought of as being "girly" or "less of a man". That's how people shouldn't regard men like you. You aren't any less of a man or more of a woman. You are just a guy with a personality different from other guys. Society has tried to make it so black and white when in reality you are just your own person. Not everyone is going to be the same. I strongly suggest you see it less as more girly, but simply as this is what your manhood looks like. You are still 100% a man and that won't ever change
i hate it too and yes i kno i am biologically 100 percent man haha. i guess im just trying to find a label when really i dont need one

thanks for the wise words but how do i delete this thread....?
No idea man. It's no big deal if it's here no one is judgemental here
I know lots of trans women who aren't opting to have what's politely referred to as 'bottom surgery'. I know some who only want their testicles removed. I know some who wanted the whole kit and kaboodle and started on estrogen, only to find that did more than enough for them to feel okay in themselves. We have at least one trans girl on ADISC who is choosing not to transition at all - that is, she's not taking any estrogen or anti androgens, nor is she getting surgery.
In the end, they're just organs, and organs aren't inherently gendered. Having a penis doesn't make you a man, nor does being okay with having a penis (or wanting one) make you any less of a woman. I think penises can look rather fetching on people of all genders (and so can vulvas, for that matter!): if you like the aesthetic of having a penis more than a vulva/vagina then carry on having one.
Lots of trans women are gay/like other women, you're not at all unusual there. There's some nasty stuff floating around out there that pushes the idea that if you're a trans woman you should only be attracted to men (i.e. be straight)... and if you're not then you're 'not a real woman'. That's absolute garbage naturally, your sexuality has nothing to do with your gender. I know several trans women personally who only date other women.
A final note: estrogen and anti androgens will have an effect on that part of your body should you choose to take them. Erections can become difficult (or in some cases impossible) to achieve and maintain, the quantity and consistency of your semen will change (and contents, actually: you will probably become infertile after a long time of taking it), your testicles may shrink and sexual sensation will... change. If it's important to have full functionality, you might want to consider what you can do to maintain this while you transition (if you /do/ transition).
