I Just Want to be Me

Someone wrote…

I may be genderqueer, but I’m still not sure. I was born female, but every time I say “I’m a girl” I feel almost like giggling, as though I’m saying a lie, and often I feel completely comfortable saying “I’m a guy”.

One of my friends was recently very rude to me and told me I should be dressing more feminine, and she and her girlfriend actually laughed about the subject of more existing genders other than male and female, which made me die a little inside, so I never told them about my doubts. I just wish I could be me, I feel pushed into a little box labeled “girl” and I just don’t wanna be there.

I just want to be ME.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    If you want to be YOU, drop the baggage that is that “friend.” Stop spending time with people who don’t get you or support you, and you won’t be allowing yourself to be so miserable. You’ll be able to empower yourself and live the life you want.
