Pride, with Prejudice
Amanda Roman

I’m FTM and I do this with other trans guys. I’ve only (knowingly) met one trans man in person, but God am I judgey while looking at the internet! “Why is he posting photos, he doesn’t remotely pass?!” I’m especially judgemental of the trans men who look most like me, significantly overweight in areas that are the ones where women tend to carry their weight. But, I’ve also been aware of it from almost the start of my exploration of “transness” and I do work hard to correct my thinking. In 2 years it has gotten better. I haven’t been to Pride in over 20 years, and I wonder what my thoughts would be like seeing similar people face to face.
