Hi FYCTC! A while ago I submitted a picture of my girlfriend, several months ago before I saw the new submission policies. As the cis partner of a trans woman, should I not submit pictures of her, even if I have her permission (and obviously don't include identifiers)? I understand that this space isn't intended for me so I don't want to step on anyone's toes.
The submission policies only regard the pictures themselves. So the pictures should not be of a cisgender person. But if a cisgender person is submitting a picture of a trans woman with permission of that trans woman then that is completely fine.
The "how do I post a comment?" seems like someone used to "standard" blogs w/ comment systems (livejournal, wordpress, blogspot, etc). FYCTC could install the DISQus system, or just remind people that tumblr works on reblogs w/ commentary added.
I know, not a question. Here: why do you rock so hard?
We decided not to install DISQus to avoid the possibility that trolls and negative commenters might reduce the safety of this space for the trans women who submit here and for those of us working here.
I just wanted to say that I love this blog! All of these girls are beautiful, and I'm happy that they are finally living how they should have been born. It is a difficult thing to go through but the journey is worth it, and they are all brave for doing it!
Certain time and presence constraints have made it difficult for all three admins to tend to FYCTC in the last week, including queuing pictures and adding descriptions. I’m working on catching up now that I’m back.
I just wanted to post to say thank you so much, this site is a true inspiration, i've been hiding my true self for so long, i'm beginning to take steps to become myself shortly , this has shown me the way !
