Unknown territory.

Someone wrote…

Were I to choose a label, the most accurate one would be “Ft?” The woman-identified part of my life is over, I’m on my way to a place that I don’t know. I got the “F,” the “t,” and heading into unknown territory.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’ve heard it described as FtWTF. Amusing at least.

    I know that feeling, but I do believe it’s healthy. Not always knowing what path there’s being taken. It’s an adventure. One discovers things about one’s own personality and identity on the travel.

    I love the label Ft. I often explain that I’m the invisible hyphen/arrow in between f-m.
