Just turned 33. Diagnosed with gender identity disorder and bipolar disorder with rapid cycling around age 10. Nothing was done until I was 16. Being diagnosed with gender dysphoria solved a lot, answered questio s from the past It took years to start HRT, huge decisiin. Not to be made overnight, nit something to "try'. This is no experiment, joke, temporary whatever so you can "feel it'. This changes you in so many ways. I prefer transsexual when I refer to myself as I'm medically transitioning, want top and bottom surgery. I hate going yo the beach or quarry dressed like every dude, but they can remove their tops. Obviously binding 24/7 is not healthy, but the dysphoria hits to see breasts. They don't belong. I saw a therapist since 2011 for sexual orientation/identity issues. He had no clue, so I was lucky to find an incredible health centre for everyone, with fkcus on the LGBTQ community. I was approved for HRT in 2014, a lot came up.

Women born that way living that way deserve their own space, as do males born and living male, transwomen, and transmen. Nothing has to include everyone, it isn’t “transphobic”, its a persons choice. Not everything has to include you, grow up, join the real world, because if you can’t face that, well, you’re not going to be able to handle independent life, let alone getting a job.

Nobody owes you anything. It is not transphobic to not include someone for any reason. Stop being a victim and grow up. This isn’t daycare. If you can’t handle being excluded once in a while.. sorry.. nobody owes you anything and…

T (testosterone) and what it does

Basics “T” is testosterone, a hormone (found in males and females, but less in females, way more in males) and can work as an anabolic steroid. It is very heavily controlled, because it can be abused! It affects specific features…
