Back in the summer or fall, I bought the voice feminization program by Kathe Perez. I think these streams and lessons are specific to trans women, although anyone who wants to speak in a more feminine voice would benefit from this program
So back when I first bought it, I completed the first two lessons. One of the lessons has me recording myself repeating phrases that Kathe puts forth. I gotta say, I sounded horrible, and that increased my need to quit (or put the streams aside for a bit), which is what I did. Well, now I am beginning to work on my voice again. The dysphoria surrounding my voice and the embarrassment of sounding like a squeaky mouse deters me quite a bit.
I know, logically, that with a lot of practice, I may be able to get my voice into a decent andro space, which is honestly what I’m shooting for. My voice is sooooo deep, that even when I’m dressed obviously female, I still get sir’d and even told by little kids that I am not a woman. It’s is becoming a worry. Should I change my voice at all? Why do I need to? People are still gonna misgender me all the time.
With all that negativity, I am still gonna give it a fighting chance. I’d like to be andro voice before I go to PA for surgery. So practice, practice, and more practice.
