    Summary

    Frustrated by the fact that many cisgender writers assume all trans men are cutesy, adolescent, submissive, pre-op boys, I've decided to create beginner's guide to writing trans male characters. I hope it helps inform somebody's writing, and changes the way that fandoms view trans men.
    .
    .
    .
    There is a big difference between a trans man exploring his identity through fanfiction, and a cisgender writer repeatedly misrepresenting what it means to be FTM, usually for the purposes of a feminisation kink. If you're a cisgender writer with the best of intentions, I hope these guidelines and resources will assist you in improving your treatment of transgender men.
    .
    .
    .
    This is all based on my opinion, and my lived experience as an adult trans man. You can disregard or deeply consider my words, I don't really care which, all I ask is that you engage with me politely and respectfully. I can speak with confidence about how I, and many other trans men, feel. I'm offering a point of view. Take it or leave it.

    In which Maiza is targeted repeatedly by unknown assailants, and the Martillos close ranks and prepare to mete down Camorra vengeance.
