“Voice Training”/Everything About Yourself
IDK if “voice training”
Is something I should recommend in earnest.
I don’t know if you can train a cat–
And that’s kinda similar.
Your voice changes as you grow older,
Regardless of your gender or hormone regiment
I don’t know if it’s healthy
To try and control
Things like your nose, or your voice, or your eye color.
I don’t think it’s healthy
To attempt to be in complete control
Of your weight and your body fat percentage.
I don’t think it’s healthy to not try, either– but
There is a balance to the world
Nobody chooses their voice.
Guy I met the other day had a voice
10x higher than mine and he was
Tall and cis and didn’t give a shit–
I doubt he’s googling “voice training for ftm”
Gender dysphoria is a real big shit, but
Trans people do seem to need reminding
That you can’t control your transition, and
The things that are out of your hands
Are usually what make you an individual–
Don’t try and scrub and trim and fix
Everything about yourself–
You can’t control your physical appearance you can only
Change your perspective, which is honestly
Way, way harder IMO.
Yep, I meant what I said–
It’s harder than the impossible thing–
But it isn’t impossible, now is it? Otherwise
We wouldn’t be in this situation to begin with.
If you can change your gender, your hormones, your
Hair, your clothes–
Why not change the way you see yourself, and
Your own beautiful voice?

I hate my voice. Too high. I understand that women speak from the throat which is why their voice is melodious. Men speak from way down in the gut. Makes it deeper as well as having a bigger Adam’s apple. But I’ve never had one person look at me funny the moment I open my mouth to speak. I’ve learned to live with it. Who cares?
Literally nobody. I bet your voice is perfect. I’ve got my issues with my voice but 1. I always have and 2. I’m realizing that it just has nothing to do with other people and that it’s all my own shit— people usually just want me to speak up because I mumble softly. How you enunciate matters more than your dang voice lmao
Your post was just what I needed. Thanks.
