“Everyone's stories are different. Not every trans* person decides to start hormones or have surgeries. Also, not every trans* person has the same dysphoria as each other.
For me, I started to feel a disconnect with parts of my body. I saw myself in a certain way that not everyone else saw. I identify as transgender...genderqueer. I see myself as a man but not a stereotypical man. I present in a masculine way, but am not what society sees as masculine.
When I was pre-T (testosterone), I quickly began to feel self conscious. I was not being read the way I wanted to be. People kept reading me as female, when that's not how I felt. Since being on T, I am seen the way I want to be and feel a lot better and more confident about myself.
I don't feel like I was born in the wrong body. However, there isn't a part of me that identifies with being female.
I'm a boi with a fierce cunt (as Adrian puts it) and I'm totally ok with that.”
