    Default Why does MyFreeCams not allow transgender models?

    I applied in 2014 to model for MyFreeCams & I was told they aren't accepting transgender models.

    I was offended, but forgot about it and moved on to other sites that allowed me. (i.e. your loss, not mine.)

    I was shocked to find that the policy is still in place 4 years later!

    Does anyone know why they won't approve trans people to model for them?

    I think this is really backwards, exclusionary / discriminatory, and just a bad financial decision in general. I also am interested in working there and expanding my online presence and feel slighted that I can't just because I am not a cisgender female.

    How can I do something about this? How do you all feel about this?

    You can start an online campaign and find others who feel as you do, I suppose if you want to make change. BUT I'm not sure how effective that will be unless you get a major trans sexworker advocacy group to support that cause. You're basically shouting at closed ears because the owner of MFC does not believe cis male performers nor trans women fit the aesthetic of mfc. Ive wondered this before if there is even anything that can be done legally to change that?

    Certain cam sites want to make themselves stand out in the market place.

    camwithher use to be non-nude only cam models with fake tits and almost all of them where white,

    then certain sites do not even list ebony models at all on their site.

    Flirt4Free use to be only studios

    So certain sites out there are basically racist, sexist or now trans phobic.

    myfreecams is one of the many cam sites out there. They have created a certain brand for themselves for a long time. So it would take a huge community protest to get them to change. but since this is business and feeding a fantasy and sometimes stereotype it will be very hard to make them change.

    It's better to focus on sites that will accept you, and then build a brand for yourself outside of the webcam business all together.

    Canada is starting to allow trans people put X on their IDs.

    So as for the rest of the world who knows.

    This also depends on what states and countries you live in. Some states allow trans individuals to have Female on their driver license before SRS (sex reassignment surgery), some do not.

    You can be trans and work on MFC if your ID says Female. If you’re pre op, just do none nude if you are passable, lol!

    In the state I'm from, even before surgery if you get a court order to change your name (pretty easy depending on the county you are in) you can get a new social security card and drivers license. Once you have surgery you can have your birth certificate changed (if you were born in that state) with no public record it was any different.

    Thank you! This is what I really wanted to know. If you can get the licensed changed how would MFC know? And please understand, I don't mean to offend anyone by saying they should hide who they are. I'm just trying to work out the possibilities.

    Ive wanted to work on MFC for a long time, at least give it a shot, but, never even tried since they are so no-trans. God forbid anyone be able to make them any more money lol. Its okay though, Streamate is fine by me.

    It's some bullshit and if you want to protest it I will happily support you. It's just discrimination justified under the hubris of "aesthetics" and "earning potential" — when we all know trans camgirls are babes who can make bank like anyone else.

    That said, I'm pretty sure a couple post-op camgirls have made it on there by skirting ID checks.. if that's you, give it a shot and fuck 'em.

    Fellow trans girl here.

    In Mexico you can legally change your gender in all of your documents, even in your birth certificate, without needing to prove SRS or transition.

    But yes, the MFC thing is bullshit. Honestly what I've done is to work only with sites who are ok with trans performers. ManyVids has done a great job at this. I get that MFC has an amazing traffic, but I strongly believe we should do business with only those who are openly willing to do business with us.

    If you are pre-op, the answer is obvious.

    However, if you had SRS and your documents are updated, there's no way they can know unless you tell them.

    I've literally seen a few post op trans girls on MFC and other camsites. It's silly to think it hasn't happened before.

    You're not missing anything. There are way better sites that understand that accepting women from all walks of life will only serve to have more models online, and more $$$ in your pocket. I can't stand looking at that site because all the girls look the same to me then there would be your occasional BBW. You could sign up anyways and just do non nude shows. The site doesn't need to know.

    They technically also have a rule that they do not bring on any ladies over the age of 45. Sometimes enforced, sometimes not at their discretion.

    It used to be 35, but when I applied didn't have a single issue.

    They are no longer #1 in cam traffic, CB is. They have been doing a major campaign through Crakrev to get traffic for the past couple of months. Which tells me they are slipping in the market.

    All cam sites rise and fall as others come up the pipeline.

    Yes, I noticed the new rev share programs with CrackRev. You can always tell a camsite is going south when their rev share programs get generous, LOL!

    In the United States It has been in place for years that if they have Surgery they can petition the court to change the sex on their legal documents. It was normally always allowed.


    In the last year It has been put in law that you do NOT have to have gender reassignment surgery, and still change your Sex via legal documents. (Ie: be a transman and labled as a male but still have a vagina) This law is untried in many areas, but is perfectly legal.

    Personally, I wouldn't even bother with MFC. I don't care for the system and they're bigots anyway. I know Chaturbate does allow transgender cam models with no issue, at least from what I've seen, plus they have high traffic and the payout is about the same as MFC. I would recommend trying there instead, since MFC really isn't that good of a site and camscore can hurt you more than help you if you're new and don't hustle right anyway, besides the obvious no transgender models issue.

    They don't allow men either. I guess they hate men. They, like all sites have their rules. This doesn't make them bigots. I can see where this thread is going.

    They just help further perpetuate the idea that trans women aren't seen as women. So yeah, they are bigots. Nobody said they hate trans girls, nobody said they hate men. I can see where you are going.

    And regardless of where this thread is 'going', I dont see an issue with there being a safe space for trans camgirls to discuss issues like this. If its bothersome to someone, there are a ton of other threads they can visit. Ya'll get to rant about any site you want and get support, so I don't exactly get why we cant do the same in a specific situation. Its a sensitive topic and I think that attempts at reversal of blame and shoulder-shrugging is insensitive.
