A few links collected from the twitterverse and blogosphere:
New ways to pack….
TranZwear has come out with a line of customized underthings designed to accommodate a packy without the need for an additional pouch. Â Read the review (and ogle the pictures) at Transguys. Â Also available, swim trunks, swim/shower briefs and bikini bottoms, all modified for packing. Â Hmmm.. I may need to check those out. Â I’m pretty happy with my packing pouch but recently found out that Babeland has stopped selling them. Â Apparently they didn’t sell as well as the strapped version — the sales person I talked to said the complaints she’d heard were that the velcro version causes the packy to hang too low. Â I wear briefs and that limits how low I hang, but I guess if you wore boxers and loose pants, there might be issues. Â I dunno, I just wanted to avoid having yet another wasteband. Â I don’t know that I can afford to replace my standard briefs with the TranZWear creations, but I’m interested in checking them out sometime and very happy that creative, trans-positive people are out there coming up with new solutions.
K-Daddy, you rock!
Sinclair was surprised to see kd lang mention her Top Hot Butches list in this video interview on Extra! Canada’s Gay and Lesbian News. Â The interviewer gushes all over kd in a massive display of butch idolizing (well-deserved) and kd, or should I say K-Daddy, is wonderfully funny, self-effacing and butch. Â I love how she blushes when discussing how butch she is in comparison to the Top Hot Butches #1 Butch, Rachel Maddow.
Transmen and pregnancy
Dr James Pate, MD, is an OB/GYN at the University of Minnesota and future gender specialist (so says his about page). Â In this post, heÂ answers an email sent to him by a couple in Israel. Â The two men, one cismale gay, the other transgender gay male, want to become fathers by impregnating the transman. Â They’re concerned about the effects of his previous high-dosage testosterone treatment (he’s quit and started having a menstral cycle again). Â Anyhow, they wrote to Dr. Pate out of concern about a possible link between high testosterone levels and autism in the resulting child. Â I think it’s a great write up, very informative. Â I’m also really in love with the idea of these two guys wanting to be dads so much that one of them is willing to deal with periods again. Â Seriously, these guys should be celebrated.
Ask Sugarbutch Anything…
Another link to one of my favorite butch blogs, this one addresses a question I posed to Sinclair as a part of her 5 year anniversary celebration. Â I asked about the origin of ‘Sugarbutch’ the term and also asked what her advice to a newly minted butch would be. Â Check it out.
Hey, you, yeah, you… if you see a link you think I’d like, something I might include in my next round-up, please send it to me at kyle at butchtastic dot net.
