Why am I confident enough to style my hair fem everyday, yet I am still afraid to just say I want to be a woman? Some days I just someone would call me out so I could just say “YES I WANT TO BE A WOMAN!”

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I feel kind of the same way, but opposite…I feel like I am ok with saying that I want to be a non-binary gender, but actually taking the physical steps to get there is still terrifying to me, because there are some people who I’ve kept in the dark about my gender…and taking those steps to change into who I feel I am would mean acknowledging to those people that I really am not a binary gender.

    So go ahead an say it. I, personally, always wanted to be a Ocelot. Not that it was ever going to happen. Curiously, I never had any idea what gender of Ocelot I’d be… I guess it didn’t really matter to me.
