101 people were surveyed of all ages on November 9th, 2011 & November 10th, 2011.
ONLY people who identified as female to male (FTM) transgender/transsexual were surveyed.
The purpose of this survey was to prove that all transgender FTM people are different. We all have different goals, plans, and fears for/about transitioning. There is no right way to transition. There is no wrong way to transition.
What is shocking to me is that most FTM people that took this survey were more fearful about how other transgender men would judge them vs. how society would judge them. This is something that we need to work on as a community. It’s sad that we have so much judgement inside of our own community. Accept all transgender FTM people even if they have a different method of transitioning.
As you can tell by the survey no matter how you are transitioning or what choices you make it your transition there are other people out there making the same choices. Do not be afraid to be yourself.
