    Summary

    This is a 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 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.
    .
    .
    .
    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.
    .

    This guide has been updated and improved since being first posted! If you are FTM and you have suggestions, feel free to comment! If you're cis, please send this (via URL) to your fellow cis writers!

    Summary

    “The music is nice,” Jon says, leaning his head gently against the side of Martin’s knee. “It’s lovely, the quiet we have here, but sometimes the silence can get a bit…”

    He waves his hand absently. “Oppressive.

    Martin lets out a small exhalation. “Yeah, I know what you mean.”

    They sit for a moment, what would have been silence filled instead with the gentle hum of a jazz ballad. Then, the couch dips again as Martin stands and says, quietly, “Dance with me?”

    Summary

    "It's easy! All you have to do is catch Martin under the mistletoe six times,” Tim explained with bright enthusiasm. Jon could practically see him vibrating from his spot on the bottom rung of the ladder. “First one to kiss him on the lips wins!”

    “Why six?”

    “It’s sort of like each time you catch him, you get one point,” Sasha explained. “First he kisses you on your hand-”

    “Like a true gentleman,” Tim interrupted.

    Sasha gave him a little glare, then continued. “After that, it’s a kiss on one cheek, then the other. Then he gives you a kiss on the forehead, then nose, then finally a kiss on the mouth.”

    “And that’s how you win Christmas,” Tim said with a nod.

    Summary

    Gerry asked, quieter, “Did he like it?” When Michael didn’t answer right away, he added, “When you gave it to him.”

    I don’t care if Monday’s blue, asserted the man in the earbud in Michael’s ear. The boy that still lived inside Michael wanted to howl the lyrics down to every cloying weekday. “I don’t know,” said the Michael that remained. “He never said.”

    Or: Michael Shelley (age inconclusive) and the mechanics of repetition.
