Weird male "nicknames"
« on: June 12, 2010, 09:45:59 pm »
Lol so as my dad becomes more accepting of my transition he is realizing just how alike I am to him and how much stuff we do (and always did) together. Recently we have been fixing up our house and yard(we have 15 acres) getting it ready for my little sister's birthday party. Every weekend we wake up early and go outside and do yard work. Usually when he is ready to get started I am sitting on the couch eating breakfast. My dad still kind of avoids pronouns, so instead he comes up with crazy nicknames to call me. Like "boy", or today which was weird but really funny "hero".

Haha just wondering if anyone else's relatives or friends had come up with any weird nicknames while adjusting to transition.
Call me a cheat but I make my own fate.

I have a friend who calls me Nipples. No joke. She used to call me a word related to that but since its so similar to my birth name she went with Nipples.
My parents(mainly my dad) call me KC. Its my initials and my new middle name, Kacey. He occasionally calls me Kyle though. My mom has called me sir a couple of times :p

Tiger, bro, stuff like that! In high school my nickname was Travis. Kinda hilarious I was called a boys name for three years of school before I knew what a ftm was. Even the teachers called me that!

As a "male" IRL I get called "Birdie" sometimes.
If you do not agree to my demands... TOO LATE

Herb! That's cute. My dad called me "Boy George" a few weeks ago.  I'm not out to him either, but he's on to me.

My dad calls me brute, but he's called me it for awhile because I used to play rough with him, so I guess he just prefers to continue calling me that instead of anything else

One of my nicknames is "Gollum."  Apparently my siblings think there's a resemblance...

If you really want to confuse people, and you are a redhead, you could ask to be called "Bluey", a very traditional Aussie nickname.

 How this came about I have no idea.

I've been called Boy George more than once by people although the last time I think it was something to do with the skul and cross bones trilbe hat I was wearing, apart from that I seem to be called mate alot by people.

None too exciting, but my mom has taken to trying to call me "dude" or even "doodle." It's just so weird when she says it, she doesn't normally so it sounds like she doesn't know how to say it, you know?

I used to be really jealous about guys being called "son" (still am, actually).  I had a teacher from the deep south who used to call all the boys son (as in-- "what were you thinking, son!") and I got so jealous I actually told him and so he started calling me daughter.  Back when I was Catholic I also used to get jealous that priests would call males "my son" but would never call females "my daughter".  It was just such an affectionate term and I was so jealous that guys got that affection and I didnt.
In between the lines there's a lot of obscurity.
I'm not inclined to resign to maturity.
If it's alright, then you're all wrong.

When I hear others near me get called a he and I don't, I feel like I don't deserve it.

Hahaha! :D We used to call my sister Smeagol sometimes because in this one photo her expression looked just like him. It was hilarious (the photo and her reactions).

At my catholic church/school, everyone got called "my child".  That was kinda nice.

I think that you (and the other guys here) would really love my country!!!
Here it's common for parents to call their kids "son", boys or girls.  ;D
It's like a nickname they use, I don't know how to explain it...
So my parents called me "son" a lot of times, I have never been called "daughter". Of course, except when they are introducing me to someone...  >:( But never in everyday life.
I'm not outed, so every time my dad/mom call me "Son, could you..." I have a huge grin.  ;D
Pretty cool, I must say...

I got attacked by a dog yesterday (yeah, I know: :o), and after the doctors put 23 stitches in my face, my mom suggested that everyone start calling me "Stitch."  I'm a little traumatized, but I don't think I'd mind that nickname too much...
