Somewhere in between

Someone wrote…

I’ve dealt with eating disorders for the past 7 years, and due to this I didn’t really hit puberty until very late, so the last year all of a sudden I got boobs. And it’s one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever experienced.

I hate them, it’s just not me. I’m not supposed to have boobs. It’s not who I am. Yet I have no problem at all with my female genitalia. And no one understands it, I’m somewhere in between.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    For what it’s worth, I do: I’ve got no problems with my cunt (though I wouldn’t describe it as “female”) but my chest is a major problem. There’s lots of us out here, I promise.

    It’s worth exploring with a gender therapist. I know a couple of trans guys who struggled with eating disorders growing up. They both have said they felt that their discomfort with their biological sex may have led to or at least contributed some to their eating disorders. (Because they had more feminine curves/bigger breasts at a healthy weight than a very low one). You history of that and your current dislike of your breasts could very well be a sign of gender dysphoria, or it could not- not all girls “have to” like breasts. And it may take you quite some time to figure it all out, but it’s worth exploring for sure.
