A LGBT Situation

Someone wrote…

I’m kinda new here… I’m 14, and I have just started to realize what I’m like. I feel comfortable having a female body, but I still obviously think, speak, and act like a male, and have a desire to be a male. But I’m confused because I have only recently started realizing and feeling like I might be trans, and have been plenty girly in the past (in clothing, not attitude).

Even though I’m comfortable being a female, I still dress, speak, an act like a male, and am even thinking about transitioning, someday, if this feeling continues. Anyway… Help; is this a phase, or is it a LGBT situation?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Congradulations on finding this site. Its a great place. As to your question the phase vs LGBTQ thing is something only you can know, and that will take time. Questioning your gender is really complicated when you first start, but if you are in a situation where you can try experimenting. Wear guys clothes or girls clothes whatever you like and whichever you feel most comfortable in. There is more than just male and female, try doing a little research and find all the other gender identities. Try them on and see if they fit. Figuring out who you are both gender and otherwise is a long process and right now it’s probably a little overwhelming and scary. There are amazing moments of joy and moments of tears but it will likely be a journey you are glad you took.

    That was exactly me three months ago.
    Now I’m completely sure I’m a trans boy, and moving forward with my transition. With you, it might be a phase. It might be curiosity. It might be your teenage self experimenting.
    And it might be who you are.

    He great thing is, the only pressure to figure it all out is being put on by you. You can take a break, walk away, and go play Mortal Kombat or whatever you do. :)
    Just play with it, roll with it, when you find it, you’ll know it’s who you want to be. Just give it time, you will KNOW. I know you’re probably impatient to figure it all out, but sadly that’s not how it usually works.

    Peace, dude, and God bless. :p
