I Think I Might be Genderfluid

Someone wrote…

I think I might be genderfluid. I’m a female from birth, but my whole life, people have always thought that I’m a boy. I usually laugh it off when people misgender me, but in truth, I don’t know how to feel about that, especially since I’ve deliberately grown my hair out and started wearing skirts so people assume I’m a female. People have thought I was a boy upon meeting me when I had makeup on and my hair in pigtails, because of my face.

I sometimes think I should let my masculinity show, because people already think I’m a guy, but I’m scared, and I’m not sure what I’m scared of.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I think you left out the most important part of the question : How do YOU feel about your gender? How do YOU feel when people gender you as female? As male?
    Please answer these questions as honestly as possible before going any further. The path will be much clearer when you do.
