    Summary

    Enzo emerges into the arrivals hall looking frazzled by the logistics of traveling with a one-year old. But when he sees them he breaks into a smile, pops the break on the stroller, and drops his bags so he can pull TK into a hug. Over the dull hum of the airport Carlos hears him say, "Hey kid, it's really good to see you." And Carlos can see how tightly they're holding on to each other.

    Summary

    The store is busy, and TK mills around, looking at things he can’t quite afford until the clerk behind the counter has a free moment.

    “What can I get for you, sir?” The clerk asks, and TK drums his fingers against the counter.

    “I’m looking for work.”

    The clerk snorts and steps away. “Everyone is lookin’ for work, kid.”

    TK follows him down the counter, dodging a customer who’s asking for a pound of flour and two yards of burlap.

    “I'm desperate,” TK tells him, and the clerk snorts again.

    “Everyone is desperate.”

    “My father is sick, my mother passed, and I have a baby brother—.”

    “Kid,” the clerk says, a spoonful of flour paused above the sack of flour, “everyone’s father is sick. Everyone’s mama just passed. And everyone has a baby brother. Or a son or daughter—someone back home waiting on them to send them money. You’re not special.”

    --

    TK leaves home in search of work. In 1915, he finds himself on a ranch outside of Austin, Texas, working for a family that will change his life forever.

    Summary

    There is a big difference between a trans man exploring his identity/sexuality through fanfiction, and a cis writer repeatedly misrepresenting what it means to be FTM. If you're a cis writer with the best of intentions, I hope these guidelines and resources will assist you in improving your treatment of trans men.

    Chapter 1: Writing Guide, FTM Anatomy.
    Chapter 2: Gallery of Trans Men.
    Chapter 3: FTM Media Recommendations.
    Chapter 4: Racism in Trans Headcanons.

     

    This guide was originally posted on my old account, which has since been deleted due to transphobic comments, including threats of violence. I have posted it again anyway, because I take this matter very seriously. Please do not repost, plagiarise, or copy this guide. But please feel free to share a link to it, so that cis authors can improve the way that they depict trans men.

     
    I have tagged fandoms and characters which are discussed in the guide, and are therefore relevant. If you encounter this guide while browsing those tags, that's why.
