Love this body, but don’t, but do.

Someone wrote…

I want someone to love my body, but when they do, I become convinced they’re misgendering me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Oh I feel like this would be the story of my life if I could let anybody get close enough to love my body.

    Hits so close to home! You’re definitely not alone in feeling this way.

    This is why I have such a hard time dating, and why I feel I need surgery so badly.

    Same here! Thankfully a really supportive and loving girlfriend helps with this feeling.

    Get out of my head.

    Amazing insight into yourself and a great ability to express what everyone else feels.

    Not only do I feel this myself, but I am so afraid of others feeling this way about me.
