How do people cope with gender dysphoria? I’m currently at a family gathering with people saying “you’re a big girl now”, “you look like your mother”- I’m almost in tears.
Anonymous asked: I don't think it's stupid. That's something you feel really strong about, I understand. Well hopefully things will be better eventually
Thanks, it’ll probably get a little better when I’m out of school and I can introduce myself to new people as I really am. It’s just because most people wouldn’t understand and I know they don’t mean it but it still makes me feel degraded, I’m not being sexist and saying that it’s shameful to be a woman but they’re calling me something that I’m not…
Anonymous asked: Oh so you want people to be able to see you as a male, but they refer to you as a 'she'
Yeah, it probably seems stupid to some people but I cried for 3 hours last night…

Basically, I’m transgender ( I’m a boy but my body is female) and I want other people to see me as a boy as well. It’s usually when people call me ‘she’ that I get upset because I know I’m not seen as who I am. I also get uncomfortable about my body, like a lot of people do but in my case it’s more extreme. Just imagine waking up as the opposite sex, it would feel weird wouldn’t it? Hope this helped you understand.
