I've been feeling a lot of dysphoria lately.
I keep thinking that I might be trans.
Now here's the problem:
Some times when I feel like a girl, a few minutes later I'll deny it and feel like a boy again.
I am so confused.
Sometimes I want to be a girl but sometimes I want to stay a boy.
I keep saying things like "I'm too boyish to be a girl but I'm too emotional to be a boy".
I am pretty muscular for my age and I have a very deep voice and I hit puberty at 9 so that's why I feel like I can't be a girl.
But I feel like I can't be a boy because I act very feminine.
I'm so confused.
Help pls.

Welcome to TP and you my friend are in the right place to learn all about yourself.  Now we do not like to label anyone and none of us are licensed therapists but in my opinion you sound like you are in the middle road of being nonbinary.  You are both and this can swap back and forth all the time.  I am not nonbinary so I may not be the best person to talk with about this but there are many here who are and hopefully they chime in.

For now just take a breathe and know you are no longer alone and dealing with this all by yourself.   There is lots of acceptance and love and tons of support here.

So read and ask and learn but be patient with yourself as a transgender journey has no limits and timelines and defiantly no owners manual.

I'm an Androgyne and you so very much sound like me!

 

Wikipedia defines Androgyny as: the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics into an ambiguous form. Androgyny may be expressed with regard to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual identity.

 

I would suggest that you might look into it a bit on line and then look back into yourself.

Hope this may help you.

Hi, CCK.  I see you talking about "can't be" and "feel like".  What about "want"? 

 

Who do you want to be?  In a perfect world, would you rather be a boy or a girl?  Or is some kind of non-binary identity what you want?  This isn't about who you have been in the past or the present.  It is about who you want to be in the future.

I want to be what my heart tells me to be.

I want to be a girl.

But it's all because of religious and social issues that I'm trying to deny it.

I've struggled trying to figure out my sexuality for years and now I've finally found out. But gender is a lot bigger than sexuality to me.

I'm just worried that once I find the gender I'm comfortable with, I might regret it later.

For about 2 weeks I thought I was bigender but changed my mind back to male for some reason. 

The reason I'm hesitant to identify as a specific gender is that I don't want it to change my life completely (I have a phobia of change)

You should see a gender therapist to work on your fears and come to terms with your identity.  Your heart knows the answer, but your fears are holding you back.

 

I totally understand the fear.  It held me back until I was 62 years old.  You are, I think, starting at an earlier age, so you have a better chance of conquering it.  
 

Just consider that accepting a non-binary identity that isn’t what you really want, out of fear, is not much different from staying in the male identity that you don’t want, out of fear.

Great advice.

 

Your never to old to reach for the brass ring.  Sometimes its on the other Merry-Go-Round though and you need to get off one and get on another to get to it.  You are who you are in the end and a gender therapist can and will assist you with these questions and choices...

Mine did.

We don't have any here...

 

Many of my friends say I might be genderfluid because my gender usually changes a lot.

Sometimes I think I should be a girl.

Sometimes I think I'm non binary.

Sometimes I think I'm bigender.

And sometimes I'm happy as a boy.

I would suggest a gender therapist I too struggled with my identity since I was a kid but most of that was because I kept trying to deny who I really was. Just take your time and don’t be afraid to talk and ask questions. Eventually you will figure it out.

There are gender therapists that do it online or even by phone. For me, I was hesitant to seek help, but it was the best move I made.

I understand the confusion, for me, it came after I began transitioning. The thought that I wasn't a boy because I didn't think or want to act or talk like a boy, but that my body gave me away not being a girl. I identify as female, but I still sometimes wonder...  Imho, I tend to think that we are to some extent genderfluid. This goes for cisgender people as well.

 

Hugs,

Brandi

Confusion is ok. You dont have to understand it all at once. You just need to breathe and think for a little while. Do some reading. Google can give you lots of information. 

 

Maybe you should look up some gender therapists. Semd them a message and get a consult... It's always worth trying.

 

Hugs ❤️

I have a friend who is genderfluid and you sound a lot like them. They go back and forth between pronouns, some days they are more feminine and others more masculine, and sometimes they don't want to be either, or even both! 

 

You don't have to label yourself anytime soon, explore a bit see what you are comfortable with, no one will rush you. If someone tries to, just come get me and I'll throw hands for ya :))

Don't rush yourself, but don't lie to yourself either. Explore a bit and find what's best fot you :))

Aidan is right.  Be honest first and don't feel like you need to have an answer now.

 

Here is something you can do to help sort this out.  Start by asking yourself what you fear?  What do you fear transitioning to female.  What do you fear about remaining male?  What do you fear you might lose becoming a girl?  What do you fear you might miss out on or suffer for staying a guy?  This will help you figure out what is holding you back from making a clear choice.

 

Don't stop there, however.  Get more knowledge on what you fear.  Maybe you fear rejection if you transition.  What might really happen if you transition with friends and loved ones?  Find out what others have experienced.  Find out how others have handled the problem.  Then ask yourself which is worse, suffering dysphoria and keeping relationships or relieving dysphoria with transition and risking loss of some relationships?  What ever it is you fear, make sure you have the most realistic idea of what might happen, by getting good advice from wise people and reading what educated people have written.  That way, your fears aren't living in ignorance.  You will know for sure your fears are based in reality.

 

HRT can help with muscle mass and will probably give you greater access to emotion.  There is nothing to help with your voice, but if i can feminize my voice (which is naturally quite deep) then so can you.  You can totally be a girl, if you are willing to do what it takes to become the girl you have in mind.  Some people say fake it until you make it.  Retraining yourself is kind of a fake it until you become it thing.

 

You are stronger than you think.  You can figure this out.  You don't have to have all the answers right now.  You can call yourself gender fluid or NB or whatever until you make a choice.  There is no rule anywhere where you have to pick something at a certain age and stick with it.  If you really need a label, what about 'gender questioning'?  All you need to do is allow yourself to slow down and start getting your thoughts organized and never, never, feel bad about being confused.  I doubt there is anyone else here who hasn't been confused.

 

You got this.

as everyone said "you dont need to rush" but if you want to figure out your gender still then try to find out one or ones that fits you the most

      I posted the stock photo of these booties in the "Payless Back to Life" post here in the Fashion forum, but I thought it might be helpful to anyone considering them, to see what they look like on a real woman's feet (and yes, the woman is me).  They are black, so they don't photograph too well.  I adjusted the brightness of the photo hoping the details would stand out a little more.  These booties are so cute.   The Payless website states that these booties have four-inch heels, but that is clearly not the case.  They are actually just a bit over three-inches in height, so they are really comfortable (well, for me anyway).  I walked in them all-day today and my feet still feel great.

      I'm thinking that a communist country like the old USSR fell down the same rabbit hole that the US did. The critical problem with Marxist communism has always been the part where the ruling party steps back and just lets the workers do their thing. That never happened because, well obviously. The democratic component was never considered. There was one party. Period. That party worked to enrich itself at the expense of its people. The result was bread lines. Democracy makes the difference. The quality of life in Europe where democratic socialism is currently working is better than ours on all levels. Better education. Better healthcare. Better security. Happier citizens. Nobody's perfect, but a blended approach seems to be working for other people. It seems like a good idea to try. We'll need our own take on it, but we should be able to build a society that works for everybody if we want it. I want it. Do you?   I'm pretty sure the rich won't pay their fair share actually. They're pretty good at hiding money and there are too many people in government at the federal level that want to hide their own money too. I'm going to ask you a question though. If the rich weren't concerned with higher taxes, why are they fighting it? I think that with appropriate leadership and funding for our institutions' (like the chronically underfunded IRS) we can reduce the amount the very rich hide away and smuggle out of the country. No tax system is going to be perfect. The one we have now is killing the middle class and the younger generations. I refuse to sit by and say, "Why bother," because I know that a segment of the population is going to cheat. That's why we have laws and law enforcement. It is your duty as an American to use what power you have to make the country better.     Bad faith argument. "Things suck and they've always sucked so don't try." Yeah, we have a real corruption problem in the federal government. That doesn't mean that all politicians are corrupt. Some absolutely are. I can name names, but I think we all know who they are at this point. Do I think Biden is beyond it? No. I think unless there's a huge blue wave he's not going to be able to get half the things he wants done. Mostly because I've seen it before. The opposition party blocked Obama for his entire second term because they could. Joe is too interested in reaching across the isle when the people across the isle have repeatedly shown that they're not willing to compromise on lining their own pockets.   Again, one side has shown that they REALLY want to be the Communist party we remember from the 80's. I don't want them to seize power. They're really close right now. So please, vote. I'm going to end on a song...     Hugs!

      Jackie, did you forget the history of the cold war. Russia was a socialist country built on communist thinking. That is where this country will be heading if Biden and Harris win. I do agree with your definitions but what is authoritarianism without socialism. One can't work without the other. Do you really think the rich will pay their fair share of taxes? I know they won't. If the rich were to pay all the taxes they really owed to the government they could move the deficit out of the trillions down into the millions. The plan Biden has proposed which would make the rich pay more taxes will never see the light of day. Non of the taxes collected will become social nor physical country improvements. They will be used to line their own pockets. Always have and always will.
    • Jackie C.
      I agree with this part. We disagree about how we're going to reach our goal.   I'd like to introduce you to Rosemary Ketchum (Wheeling WV City Council), Pluto (Chair of Indiana Green Party) and Christopher Kalcich (Selinsgrove PA Borough Council). I agree that there should be some of us in the federal government as well, but hey, one step at a time. Politicians on the federal level usually get their start in local politics.   Socialism: A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.   Nobody is advocating for this. People are advocating for more socialist programs. The goal here is to provide needs (housing, food, health care, education) to people that might not otherwise have it. Every American deserves to reach their full potential. People can still be rich, we just want people who were born poor to have a chance too. Nobody should have to choose between living indoors and buying medicine for their children.   What you're describing -     - Is actually Authoritarianism.   I will point out that there two forms of socialism. One (the Nazis) happens when you take things away from one group and give them to another. The other, (the one I'd like to see) happens when you try and lift everybody up regardless of the color of their skin or what's in their pants.   Authoritarian: Favoring or enforcing strict obedience to authority, especially that of the government, at the expense of personal freedom.   It also happens to be the style of government practiced by some of the best buddies (North Korea, Russia, etc.) of our current ruling party. It's also part and parcel of our current system where the government bails out big businesses so they continue to stagnate and keep new, small businesses from sprouting up. It also helps concentrate money into the hands of people who are already very, very, very rich.   I would like to see that stop. Back in the 50's, we understood some things that we've seem to have forgotten. An average adult can work about forty hours a week before productivity starts to suffer, the number is closer to thirty if the job requires a lot of brain work. We understood that the CEO making about twenty times what the lowest paid worker in their company made was sustainable. Our education was top-notch. Most people could get a job with their high school diploma and work within that company for the rest of their lives. The company valued their workers, and helped to take care of them. Civil rights was garbage back then, but we had worker's rights mostly figured out. Now I'm not going to try and tell you anything, but I want you to think about who has been defunding the things that made that possible. Who is attacking the structures who made those worker's rights a thing. Now I want you to think about who made the advances in civil rights and who keeps patching the economy back together every eight years.   For my entire lifetime, there's been a repeating series of recessions. They happen about four years into the reign of one of our political parties. Every time. Then the other party gets into power, and just about gets everything running again. It's running worse, but it's headed in the right direction. The opposing party gets into power, claims credit for everything the previous party did and then promptly drives us off a cliff again. For my entire lifetime, one party has had our military engaged in petty bully wars with tiny, weaker countries to further the interests of our big corporations. For my entire (adult) lifetime, I've seen my tax dollars go to bail out failing corporations while the CEOs that drove it into the ground fail upwards.   This needs to stop. Both major parties are complicit, but only one of them has a faction within it that is saying, "No more." I stand with them.   Hugs!

      Suspicion and fear of the "different" is the root of more human error than as of yet been given a quantity.  One of my college professors in Behavioral Science who emphasized the Scientific Method of research had a poster in the classroom that asked us "Are you the measure of humanity or the measurer of human behavior?"  His point was that we needed to include ourselves as subjects of our own research, and spent time with each of us discussing an assigned research project to get us to know what we were taking into the project of ourselves and our preconceived ideas about the subject.  At the end of the project we sat down again and subtracted anything that looked like it mirrored the preconceptions.  With those gone, we wrote the projects up for grading.  My response was a little more full than many, but still pretty darn short.  Two of my classmates who wrote "I learned a lot about myself, but almost nothing about what I studied" actually got very high grades.  I got an 85% or high B grade and it had been brutal.

      I think we have felt the need sometimes and sadly many take their lives because they are unable to handle the pain - but I applaud ALL OF YOU HERE AT TP - myself included - that we fight through the pain - and take what we've been given and conquer our fears - treat yourself extra special today and be proud of all you have managed to overcome and carrying the load you've been given - a load you never asked for. Even The Pain Richard Page Three long years now Since I've seen her face Three long years now Since she left this angry place Her destiny called her But too soon for her age If I'd only listened She might be here today And we're all gonna ride this river And we're all gonna feel the rain And we all take what we're given Even the pain Cold, tired and hungry Now she's movin' with the wind And all I do is worry 'Bout the pain she must be in If only I could see you Tell me why you didn't write Now there's no one to defend you And I can't sleep at night And we see that light before us Through the darkness and the shame But it all breaks down Even the pain So roll on mighty river Take us down to the sea Wash away the muddy water And set us free

      Let me explain socialism to everyone. Socialism is where the government tells you how to live where you can live, what you can do, basically you will have no choices in life. A socialist government will set up what is called station and you will not be allowed to live outside of the station you are born to with the exception of certain circumstances with which the government allows you to move. Personally I don't need or want anyone making decisions for me in any way or form. You won't have the right to choose the field of work you want. You wouldn't be able to go into business without government permission and they would never let a new business open that endangers the finances of a large business already making millions. This would no longer be a free country where you would be able to walk down the street without fear. I don't need that kind of control nor would I ever want that kind of fear. I don't fear the way this country has been growing. A vote towards socialism is a step backwards. We need to grow in the right direction and we need a true voice, a transgender voice, in government seats. We need a transgender person in one or more government seats. Only then could we get heard. We don't need someone to make our choices for us.

      I doubt that anyone enjoys paying taxes.  But most folks do enjoy decent roads and the rest of the infrastructure that enable us to function as a society.  These things are also necessary for businesses to operate and prosper.  Elizabeth Warren pointed out that even the wealthy depend on these things to increase their wealth.  A factory cannot function without the working class, why is it too much to expect them to have secure lives? I personally don't expect much from a Biden administration.  But just a little less hostility would be nice. We don't really have a progressive party in this country, only far right, and center-right. Using the label "socialist" as a smear is useless as it can range from gulags to the Nordic Model". And as a veteran, I am offended when it is implied that wanting to improve our country is unpatriotic.   Okay, my rant is over.

      I think your nails look way better than mine. I need professional help.   Honestly, I don't think 90% of guys would so much as notice your nails if you didn't draw attention to them. Men are kind of oblivious. They usually notice that you HAVE hair, but not so much that you have it styled. They realize that you're wearing clothes, but not that it's a new blouse/skirt combo that looks super cute. Unless you did something super obvious with your hands, I don't think most guys would pick up on it. Even less of a chance if your nails aren't painted.     I love the way you phrase that: "I'm... I'm more than just a crossdresser. The power... it frightens me. My female side... she's breaking free! Oh no! Run! I'm changing!" I'd buy that comic-book. Of course I've also thought that "Coming Out" stories should be called "Origin Stories" so there's probably something wrong with me.   So yeah, give me a little hint. What's the dilemma? The whole point here is doing whatever it is that makes you happy and comfortable in your own skin. If that's painted nails and dresses full-time with nothing else, that's a perfectly valid way to be. If you feel like you want HRT and/or surgery to feel more authentic, that's OK too. It's just about making yourself happy and making life a little easier to deal with.   Hugs!
