Figuring it out

Someone wrote…

So I think I’ve figured it out. I identify as neither male nor female but feel best presenting as male. I’d like to take low doses of hormones and have top surgery. But I’m also okay with where I am now, since I actually know where I am.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Hooray neither male nor female people! Good to know there are more of us ; )

    I feel like a mixture of both male and female elements but feel more comfortable presenting as male as well. Like Anonymous, it’s nice to know there are other non-binary, male presenting folks out there. Congrats on finding out where you’re at!

    We are all mixtures of male and female elements. Everyone who has ever lived has this in common. This is very simply because we’re real alive beings, not just collections of labels. We grow, we change, we explore, we fail and we conquer.
    For a time in my life, I considered myself male and had no questions. I was wrong.
    For a time in my life, I considered myself female and had no questions. I was equally wrong.
    For a while now in my life, I am trying to accept myself for who and what I am without claiming allegiance to belonging with the boys or the girls. I belong with both, for I am both.

    Ditto. Always nice to be reminded that I’m not the only one! :)

    This is exactly how I would describe myself (both the original post and the comments). I’m glad I’m not the only one. I wish we could somehow get each others emails without making them public so we could support/help each other.
