Ask Policy (Please Read Before Asking Us a Question!)
-Keep in mind that we are not medical professionals, therapists, lawyers, or experts. We are just two trans guys, and our advice is based primarily on our personal experiences.
-If you want to ask any questions about your personal transition or ask for personal advice, please ask un-anonymously and we will respond privately. Unfortunately we cannot respond privately to people who are anonymous, and this is the way we want to deal with these types of questions from now on. We will generally respond to these privately (depending on whether or not we feel your question is unique and would be helpful to our followers), but if you definitely want us to not post your ask you should mention it and we will absolutely keep it private.
-If you ask any question that is easily answered by google or by one of our original articles listed on the page, we will definitely not answer it if we can’t respond to it privately. Depending on the situation and how many questions we have that day, we may still not respond to it at all. It is very important to us that we stop clogging up the blog answering questions we’ve answered several times before so this is how we will deal with it.
-If you are writing to us to address us specifically (to compliment us, call us out, ask us a question about ourselves, etc.) we would really appreciate it if you would go off anon to give us the opportunity to respond privately. This isn’t just to not clog the blog, but also because we feel it is often better to have private conversations to answer these sorts of questions or sort these sorts of things out. We really listen to your criticisms, call outs, etc. as well as your positive feedback to help shape this blog (and often in general to better ourselves as people), so don’t stop doing that! It’s just nice to do it through a private message than a public one.
-If you are writing to give your own response to a previous ask, please do so by replying to the post, not writing in to us. We understand that this is not always possible because the reply button doesn’t always appear, but it seriously goes a long way toward de-cluttering the blog to do this. You can still write in and know we will see it, but we usually avoid posting these sorts of things for organizational reasons.
-Please refrain from asking us location-specific questions or questions about your insurance. We probably don’t know the answer anyway.
If you want to have a private conversation with us but don’t have a tumblr or feel you can’t go off anon, feel free to email us at email@example.com. We don’t check this address every day, but make an attempt to do so at least once a week.
