What's This "Dickgirl" Thing All About?


When I first came to the realization that I was MTF (Male-To-Female) transgender in November-ish 2020, I found that I effectively wanted to become a shemale. But this term is a nasty slur, and didn't quite fit right either. I had considered all the slurs, from trap, to tranny, to "chick with a dick" and that's when it hit me, why not rephrase that last one to be short, concise, and rather fun? Thus, dickgirl was born, with a flag to match.

A dickgirl specifically refers to a transgender individual that finds gender identity in the physical form of breasts and a penis. Most commonly, the penis is a source of gender euphoria, though it is possible to simply be indifferent to having a penis. You do NOT need to have testicles to be considered a dickgirl, and in fact some dickgirls may have gender-nonconforming surgeries done to provide both a penis and a vagina (a process known as "penile preservation vaginoplasty"). It is also important to note that transgender women that have gender dysphoria from their penis do not fit the definition, and as well, it is up to the individual if they wish to use this term. This part is key &dash just because an MTF transgender individual doesn't pursue bottom surgery does NOT make them a dickgirl. It's an identity like any other.

Oh I'm sorry you've been waiting for the flag that I talked about? What do you want, an SVG vector or a high-res PNG image? Choose wisely, one might be 283 bytes, but the other is close to two thousand bytes, which is like, two whole kilobytes. Look a 1,500x1,000 PNG is gonna cost ya a bit more than something you can just scale as needed. That's what you get for living in the stone age.

And now you wanna know what it means? My my you greedy bastard, here's the short of it: Deep pink for female upper half, blue for male lower half, and black-white-black for mascara eyes cuz dickgirl is beautiful, baby! Those are all the CSS names too. I think, anyway, "deep pink" might be sketchy, just use #FF1493 for it.

Unfortunately, there is still a mild amount of controversy over whether or not using a gender with a body part is a good idea at all, with some arguing that the word dickgirl itself is a slur. Most people I talk to aren't aware of the term, and a quick search of PornHub shows that the term "Shemale" is 28x more frequent in videos than "dickgirl". Of all the terms that could be used for us in person by those outside the community dickgirl is the least likely to be used. Besides, reclamation of slurs is an ongoing process within the community itself. The most important thing to remember is that the intended use case of dickgirl are MTF transgender individuals that find gender euphoria from having a penis.

Without a name for this, there is no visibility. This lack of visibility &dash the notion that "I love my penis so I can't be trans, right?" &dash kept me in the closet for twenty years longer than I should have been. There is literally no word I could pick that wouldn't offend someone in some capacity. The only way to reclaim a slur is to make a LOT of people uncomfortable. Be aware that some trans women won't be comfortable with you using this term. But remember, you're already making people uncomfortable by simply being trans at all. We are a minority within a minority. You will get shit for it. But that doesn't invalidate who you are. It is a transmedicalist ideology to believe otherwise.

Dickgirl is fun. Dickgirl is grand. Don't abuse it!
