Rearranging my parts.

Someone wrote…

I used to be a boy. Now I’m a woman, living as a man. My shrink, and my parents, can’t understand why I would need to do such radical things to my body in order to find comfort with masculinity. I tell them, masculinity is not about having a penis, nor is femininity about having a vagina. If it takes rearranging my parts to discover my gender, then so be it.

They still don’t get it. And that’s okay.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I totally understand that.
    My thoughts are the same, but in the opposite. I want to be bio male but identify as female (at least some of the time). I’d feel more comfortable bio male, but at least 50% of the time I’m more comfortable in fem clothes.
    I’ve always wished to be bio male so I could be flamboyantly different. Where I live, it’s not “weird” when girls dress in a way so they kind of look like guys, but it’s a little “weirder” when guys dress more like girls. I enjoy being weird and having attention directed towards me because of my appearance. So it would suit me better to be MtF, so I guess I’d be FtMtF? Lol, whatever.
    For the moment, just genderless works fine for me.
