Teen Hormones and Things

Someone wrote…

This is so confusing. I may just be a teenager dealing with normal teen hormones and things like that I mean I turn 15 in a week but I don’t feel feminine or girly? I thought I was a trans boy for a while and I tried genderfluid for a little bit too but nothing seems to fit.
I dunno what to do or what to tell my friends. I want to get a binder but that would mean I have to come out to my parents and I just don’t think I’m ready.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    If I remember my terms correctly, you may fall under Gender-Queer (don’t shoot me if I’m wrong anyone, I’m not saying I’m right.) Again, if I remember correctly, that’s just the basic umbrella term for anyone that doesn’t conform to “normal gender standards.” If you have a friend that’s good with this stuff, ask them. Have a late night heart-to-heart and tell them you’re confused or whatnot. It’s how I first realized it. Part of it may just be hormones causing you to overthink and stress out about this. Take your time. The world will (probably) still be there tomorrow.

    “Agender” or “Neutrois” might apply. I don’t think you owe anyone a comprehensive explanation, or some kind of conclusive report on who you are. I don’t see why you could just desire a binder without committing to some whole package of trans identity.

    Of course, it depends on your parents and everything. But maybe you can be given the means and space to take it bit by and bit and figure out how you feel most comfortable?
