How to Express

Someone wrote…

I’ve struggled with my assigned gender for the last two years. I’ve tried cutting my hair short, wearing more masculine clothes and copying body language. I’ve realised that I’m still not happy and I still have dysphoria.

The problem is I don’t know how to express what I feel inside on the outside. The truth is I like the nowadays norms of what femininity is supposed to look like but not how its supposed to act like. So I feel androgynous inside but I don’t like short hair or leg hair and I hate how male clothing is boring and uncreative. I want to try contouring make up to make my facial structure look more ‘manish’ while being quite feminine in appearance.

Hopefully that will satisfy me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
