Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Submit?
- Click the “Submit” button, placed at the top right-hand of the page.
- Write your sentence, preferably just stating the section that would be written after “You Know You’re Trans When” for ease of copying.
- We are unable to credit your posts unless directly asked to do so, if you wish to be credited then sign the post before submitting to the page.
- If you do not want us to know who you are, you can state your name as “Anonymous” and your email as “Anonymous@anon.com”.
Why hasn’t my sentence been posted?
If your post was deemed inappropriate we may not have posted it. So far we haven’t seen the need to delete many submissions, therefore have not drawn up a ruling about what is acceptable to submit. However, should your post contain offensive wording, we may see fit to edit your post or not post it at all.
If your post has not been posted after about 2 weeks, it may have got lost in cyber space, so feel free to submit it again.
Why has the same type of sentence been posted twice?
While we try to avoid having the same thing posted twice within the same day, it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid having duplicates at all. Also, by posting all sentences regardless of whether a similar idea has been posted before allows all submitters to have a fair chance at getting their submission posted without being required to read through all posts before hand.
Why is it that the sentences are more biased towards one side of the trans* community?
As the site is submission based, we’re relying on you as our followers to submit. It may be that more of one identity in the trans* community are submitting at one time. It’s not our intention to cause anyone to feel left out of the site, so should you wish to see something else, feel free to submit it :)
Why are some posts credited and others not?
Should you wish to be credited, clearly state this and include your name or URL in the post so it can be copied over.
I didn’t know I can be credited, can I ask my post to be edited even though it’s already been posted?
Unfortunately we are unable to credit posts that have already been posted / queued.
What does the asterisk after ‘trans’ mean?/Why did it get changed from ‘trans’ to ‘trans*’?
After receiving a few messages asking whether we would consider putting an asterisk in, we put it to vote. The majority felt that ‘trans*’ was more inclusive than ‘trans’ and that would be the preferred terminology to use.
Trans* is taken generally to mean: Transgender, Transsexual, genderqueer, Non-Binary, Genderfluid, Genderfuck, Intersex, Third gender, Transvestite, Cross-dresser, Bi-gender, Trans man, Trans woman, Agender and further gender expressions that we may not be aware of, whereas ‘trans’ could have been taken to mean the blog only applies to trans men and trans women. We wanted more people to feel included in submitting posts and the blog as a whole.
Why don’t you have trigger warnings on triggering posts?
We have a trigger warning on the site. Further information is given here.
OMG! YOU MADE A TYPO!
Actually I think you will find the submitter submitted a typo and we just missed it. We’re human, please calm down.
Hey! That applies to me and I’m not trans*!
Obviously there is some overlap and just because a sentence applies to you, it does not mean you are trans*. Your identity is your identity, it is not defined by other people.
Will you promote my Tumblr?
Possibly, yes. If you wish for us to promote your Tumblr, send us a message with a bit about the blog. We receive a lot of submissions and asks so it may take up to a few weeks for it to show up on YKYT.
NB: Please note that we won’t promote personal Tumblrs.
