More so than I used to admit, but that could also be because I'm unhappy with myself in other ways.

I won't go into detail right now since I have a hard time putting my private thoughts into words. Besides, it's my journey so I can take it at the pace I want. I just hope I end up happier.

By now I think the best I can tell is I'm genderfluid, tending to lean feminine a little more often. That is, I've been trying to log my feelings daily since late April and with many gaps earlier, I seem to do pretty well, now. Feminine/Female moods last longer.

Maybe it'll get better as I get attuned more to these feelings.



Really enjoying the "fuck normality" vibes in here.

I had a dream about it once... It felt weirdly realistic, and I think my brain struggled to comprehend sensory inputs from my dream body's new features. (At least, I'm assuming it was a dream... )

To be clear, if that's the most important aspect of it to you, that's okay. It's just good to understand that it's not the be-all end-all of gender for everyone.

Oh I know, and I hope in fact things turn out a bit more sophisticated for me at some point. It feels like I'm taking the piss at times, comparing how I judge things to others. :/

Gender as it relates to others is something I've been watching a bit from the sideline, learning as I go.

i think something that's important to know is that nobody else but you gets to determine how you interpret your feelings relating your gender, and how you designate your gender

gender is a personal thing. there's no "right" or "wrong" or "sophisticated" or "overly simple" way to experience it. be you, whatever that you is

(of course, if you feel like there's more complicated feelings there and you want to unravel them, by all means, keep exploring... but don't feel pressured into anything based on comparison to others)

Good news! You already are.

As for me... A lot has happened since my egg cracked in July and I'm currently in the cycle of confidence followed by doubts and dysphoria, and it's been preventing me from taking any steps beyond small things here and in private. Doesn't help that I'm a broke college student.

Maybe I should talk it out with someone here, if I ever get the confidence.

Yeah. On and off since about early 2016, though it's noted in my specialist doctor's letters to my parents that I'm suspected of having gender dysphoria after I mentioned it to them. Perhaps it's true feelings as they never went away fully, and they are pretty strong feelings indeed.

My parents don't accept me, but I'm planning to transition when I move out. Not sure how I'm gonna cope with it all though given I'm heterosexual (if you go by my assigned-at-birth sex) and perhaps maybe will ask a certain Nicole at college out, she's a heterosexual female sadly...

... relationships with others will be difficult. This is also the UK, so acceptance and getting through will also be difficult. But hey, if it makes me happy in the long run for who I am and I actually start expressing myself IRL how I want to, rather than having to fill in this stereotypical male personality somewhat (though I actually don't particularly do so, I feel men are more pressured emotionally and women more physically idk)

(Though I do plan to get with another MtF at some point who is actually an inactive member here.)

Seems the nearest gender clinic to me is in London. If I drive there I'll have to deal with idiot drivers (I'm learning to drive pretty soon).

I've thought about it at times, but looking back at it it has mostly come down to general body dysphoria, rather than gender dysphoria specifically.

I mean, that being said I have never really wanted to be particularly masculine with my gender. I guess the desired expression of my gender I wanted was "male but soft", I guess? I dunno how to put it into words.

This is literally the conclusion I have reached in these last weeks and my goodness does it feel good!

I think without places like this I might still be wondering and worrying.

Sometimes this doesn't feel much easier to attain, honestly...

I guess my ideal would be having this be completely malleable so I can do whatever I feel like based on the situation... Sadly, my body is busy degrading in the usual irreversible ways, so this'll probably never be possible.

I mean, every once in a while, but not in the sense that I'd want to get a sex change or anything like that, it's just that sometimes I wonder what living would physically feel like if my body was born with .. well, y'know, other parts.

It's not actually something I really care about though, I honestly sort of figured everyone occasionally imagined that. I'm kind of surprised actually at how many people in this thread are not only answering "yes" to this but also saying they outright want to get a change or have already done so (not saying that's a bad thing of course).
