    Never really felt entirely like a man

    and being a woman was even further from it. Since I was a child I wanted to wear girl's clothes, and I came out as gender-variant in college. For some reason the urge to be feminine comes and goes. So like I dressed feminine and enjoyed presenting as a female in college but...

    I have been a two spirit all my life.
