    For as long as I can remember,

    femininity has intrigued me. But it was something that was out of my immediate grasp. Yes when I had a chance, I would put on my Mom and sister's clothes. Growing up in the 60's was the perfect excuse for wearing my hair long. My Dad didn't like it but my Mom said it was alright...

    I've liked girly things (makeup,

    My grandma bought me a very expensive necklace.

    Its very girly, and I told her in advance not to buy me anything for a girl. When I opened it, I almost cried, 'cause I will never wear it. Makes me feel a little selfish, but I don't her not to buy me anything for a girl........... (alyx)

    Why am I having doubts?

    I know I would be 100% more comfortable with my body if it were male. These feelings of dysphoria are not make believe. So why am I questioning it?

    My story. Ever since I was a little "girl"

    I always knew something was off. I was never interested in things that most girls my age were. I'd rather wear boys clothes. I always thought it was because my dad used to call me his little boy before my brother came along. As I got older I knew it was much more than that, just...

    I feel like I need to finally take the first

    step to transitioning. I have been afraid to do anything mostly because Ive been afraid what others may think but I need to think about me for once. Id love to talk to other trans individuals and make some friends maybe get some advice from others.

    I feel shame that I have not done anything to start transitioning. A few friends know my true identity, but I am afraid to share it with the world. I am so vocal about my support for people who are LGBT, but i feel like a hypocrite because I don't come out myself. I am also a...

    Does my mother not believe what I tell her because she really thinks it's my autism, or because she doesn't want me to be transgender? Apparently girls with autism relate more to boys. But there's a difference between relating to boys and being a boy trapped in a girl's body. I...
