I’ve been thinking about Testosterone a lot more these days. I really want to be perceived as male, even if my true gender is somewhere in the middle. The consequences of starting a physical transition scare me so much!

Any advice on how to get past the fear of people judging and having those dreaded conversations?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I have been / still am stuck at this point somedays. But I came to the conclusion that I NEED the testosterone to make the body I have my own. Because from out of my own skin, it is easier to be me, to be somewhere in the middle than from out of a body that doesn`t belong to me at all. So I transition to be able to create some roots that will keep me grounded, that allow me to be whoever I want when ever I want.. In my case, I need the more masculine identification, because I have absollutely NO identification with the female body I have now. And for someone who is..genderfluid it is more important to have a safe place to start from, I think. I can only live my true “beeing-in-the-middle” when it is starting on the masculine side of the spectrum, where I feel safe and home.

    only my stupid thougts and experiences…

    My recommendation would be to start with the person you trust most. You don’t have to come out to everyone all at once.
