Do you know any transsexual woman that fathered children? What do their kids call them?

Greetings, Ally!

I have not personally known any transgender women who have been the sperm donor to a child (I am using the non-gendered term for my own personal comfort, rather than in correction, for the record!), but I have known *of* several. I have also known of transgender men who have given birth to a child.

What the child ends up calling them differs. Generally, the 'appropriately gendered' term is used ("Mommy/Mama/Mother" for a transwoman or "Daddy/Papa/Father" for a transman). Of course, it depends on the preference of the parent, as they will guide the child's speech.

Hopefully my answer was a help! Feel free to add questions, comments, feedback, and follow-ups that you may have!

I am able to answer questions about transexual and transgender issues of many kinds, but in particular those tilted toward the FTM (Female-To-Male) transgender. I can offer tips for dressing, passing, binding, packing, behavior, and the like for both drag and full lifestyle/gender transition. I may also be able to offer some help with finding local peer groups, should you be interested in peer counseling. Sexuality issues, MTF (male-to-female), and other gender issues can also be touched on and I may be able to help, and for those who may be concerned, I am kink-friendly, and while I recognize that transgender and cross-dressing are two different things, am well aware of how they can intersect.

I am not a professional (I repeat: I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL!) but I can also offer some general peer counseling suggestions and help with finding groups for all branches of gender identification and sexuality. If you are in need of finding a professional, I may be able to find a name in your area to help.


I am personally FTM transgender, living full-time and accepting of my gender identity. I am nonsurgical, and have no desire to have them done (so am unable to offer personal experience these) though I have been on testosterone as of January 2012. I am well-accepted, well-supported, and have been a support for many individuals through the years.

I have been part of a number of groups, though moving has kept discussions to long distance since then. I am well-studied for a great many years in this area, having begun reading up on it when I first identified and having kept up on it since then. I have no medical credentials in the area of gender counseling but have been part of multiple peer counseling groups and to this day help educate where I can, having not only helped with offering information on the subject to fellow transgender individuals but educated professionals along the way through my personal experience.
