7358) I came out in my teens, transitioned in my early 20s, and now I’m in my late 20s. I’ve lived the past decade as a straight feminine women because my family outright said that’s the only way they’d accept my transition. And since I’m a baby, I did it so they’d stay in my life. However, it feels like I’ve been living a lie just like I did as a guy. I scheduled a hair appointment to get my hair cut short and dumped my boyfriend in order to find a women. Ladies, please don’t deny yourself the opportunity to be exactly the woman you want to be. Even if my family leaves, I know I’ll be much happier being true to myself with a more butch presentation and by dating women.
7357) Being confused is the worst because what if I choose to transition, noting all the repercussions of doing so (losing friends and family, possible harassment/assault, etc.) and then I realize after all that hell that it wasn’t the right choice?
7356) I have to come out to my sister. I’m nervious, scared actually. I don’t know what’ll happen. Two relatives accept me, the rest hate me The last time I did this, my uncle harassed, threatened to punch me, and called me a freak and skany bitch. Eeek:(
7355) Even when I feel down and alone I realize how much the trans community has made me feel less alone. My only girls clothes came from a trans man who didn’t need them anymore. Whenever I feel dysphoria or I feel like shit because of transphobia from my family and classmates, other trans people have talked me through it. Being trans sucks but I’m glad for the trans community.
7354) I’m 25 now. I’ve struggled with depression and suicidal ideations for years; dropped out of uni twice and most days can’t get out of bed. I feel like I’m too overweight and masculine to transition. I live in a house with arseholes who are transphobic and bullying. The only reason I haven’t killed myself is because I can’t bear the thought of that pain, and a couple of my friends accept me. If you’re a person with trans friends please support them!! - you could be saving their life.
7353) I feel like I’m the only one that gets what I’m going through.
7352) I think i finally have the courage to come out. I have always wanted to be a woman. Ever since I was a little boy I always thought there was something wrong with me, especially when I got to junior high, when the other girls started growing breasts and getting taller and skinnier and I was getting taller and wider. After high school I’m finally going to go to a doctor and get on HRT.
7351) i am so scared right now of making bad choices, of falling back on old self harming habits to get me through. i’m terrified of my impending poverty and being paralyzed on what to do about it (or of having to pick the obvious, uncomfortable unsafe choice). i’m relying on others to support me, but if i let them down it all falls apart and i may not make it back out. i need help, and i’m so afraid who to ask that i just lay here whimpering, hoping no one will notice because i doubt they can help.
7350) It seems like cis men expect me both to be their “bro” since I’m AMAB (as in, listen to them whine about how terrible women are and how they’re all bitches) and to be sexually available at the same time. Except, I have no interest in either of those things.
