5623) It was beyond surreal to have an encounter with a trans person who was out irl, have the topic of trans issues come up, and to be told “you wouldn’t understand, being cis and all”. I was too shocked to correct them. I can’t believe I’m finally passing well enough for a statement like that to even be made.
5622) It’s frustrating and gross that people will automatically assign “femme” and “butch” to women in a lesbian relationships, without taking into consideration that not all relationships are like that. It’s also frustrating that I’m automatically branded the butch when I’m dating a girl because of my somewhat “mannish” appearance.
5621) I really hate having a common birth name because you hear it constantly: on the news, people talking to their friends… even people closer to me! It’s frustrating. I wish I didn’t associate that name with every shitty dysphoric feeling it came with, considering how often I have to hear it. Not to mention, I keep flinching like I heard my name being called even though that’s not my name anymore, and it’s getting old!
5620) during and after sex, i always feel like i inflicted my body on my partner. like they shouldn’t have to put up with the pain and sadness and frustration and failure that’s written into my weird, disfigured flesh. i always think afterward that, if they were looking for a girl, they deserved a normal one. not me. never me. it leads me to feel inferior in relationships even when my partner actively works to help me not feel that way.
5619) i hate being heavy, it makes it so hard to buy girl clothes, especially when you want to wear them out in public.
5618) You see a lot of early transitioners that are drop dead gorgeous and pass flawlessly. Well I’m what you’d call an “early transitioner” and I’m neither. I guess I had my hopes too high…
5617) I always worry I’ll end up alone because I’m trans.
5616) The fact that I’m colorblind came up in a convo yesterday… and the person said, “Wow, colorblindness is super rare in girls! You’re the first one I’ve ever seen!” Well buddy, that might have to do with me not being biologically female, lol, but you don’t need to know that…I’m glad you thought that, though. It meant a lot.
5615) Some people take it as a compliment but I feel somewhat awkward when people gush about how “natural” I look. I can’t explain it, it just makes me uncomfortable, but not enough to say anything.
