TRANSMEN

I will never know how painful it is to get caught in my zipper. I would take the chance, if it meant I had a penis and I could pee standing up
.
I will never know how embarrassing it is to get an erection in public. I would happily hide my visible arousal, if it meant I could get an erection.

I will never know the disgust of having to go to the doctor for a prostate exam. I would go and get an exam every week, if it meant I had a prostate.

I will never know the agony of being kicked in the balls. I wouldn't curse or scream about it, if it meant I had balls that could be injured.

I will never need to use a condom for the reason "I don't want my partner to get pregnant". I'd never gripe about having to use a condom, if it meant I had the ability to get someone pregnant.




TRANSWOMEN

I will never know the moodiness, bloating, and cramps of having PMS. I would not complain and I would try to deal with the agony, if it meant I got a period.

I will never know the dread of going to a gynecologist. I would cheerfully skip into the office, if it meant I had a vagina.

I will never know the discomfort having hot flashes. I would smile while I fanned my sweaty face, if it meant there was estrogen in my body to lose.

I will never know the anxiety of waiting on a pregnancy test. I would patiently wait for days, if it meant I could possibly be pregnant.

I will never know the pain and joy of childbirth. I would have a natural birth with no drugs for pain, if it meant I could give birth to a child.
These are fictional quotes expressed from the viewpoint of Transmen and Transwomen. They are about events, thoughts, and concerns many people would recognize as having experienced in their physical male or female body. Even though they are presented in a somewhat humorous manner, I think many transfolk will find them bittersweet. Remember, sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. :) These are experiences that most cisgender people would probably assume transgender folks wouldn't miss or care about if they never experience them in their desired physical body. These experiences are often seen as "little", trivial", or "stupid" things. Some of these experiences, cisgender people wish they didn't even have to experience for themselves. I think it's an interesting look at human experience related to physical bodies and being transgender. It's a different take on transgender thoughts and experience that some people may not even think about.

Totally agree. Transman one is spot on (and I can imagine the transwoman one too. But not from personal POV)
Having little 'feeling' bcause of a condom? How about a) not being able to be penetrative sex, or b) having to use a prostetic with no feeling at all, or c) having to go through heavy surgery to get some sort of a 'penis', having to implant a special device to get it erected, and if you're unlucky not having any tactile sense in it either.

I wish we could put cispeople into our bodies for JUST ONE DAY. Then they would understand.

Transwoman here. My thoughts exactly. I don't care how painful it would be, I'd do anything to be able to be pregnant and bear a child :\
