I am... by ThatDarkWolfy I am... by ThatDarkWolfy
As a pre-T transgender myself, I feel many of these things. I've been struggling to figure out a piece of art that shows how painful it is to just "be" everyday. People will say things like, "who cares what others think" or "Just deal with it. It's the way you were made".

You could never understand unless you were born like we were...
In the wrong body.

Art me

No stealies.

Doubtful it is the same thing, but I can atleast say I partially understand this. I am physically a male though I like being female (granted without the physical traits) at times and other times just being male. Both feel like me but when I feel like one, the other does not feel like me if that makes sense. I considered it a neutrality of sorts. Two sides of my psyche, the female and the male wanting to be "out and about". It feels like I am both in a sense and I have trouble figuring out what to do about that.

It's not the same thing, but it is a part of the gender spectrum. 

Does the term "Gender fluid" fit better? You drift between the two, and I know a person in real life that does the same thing. They simply go with the flow and how they feel that day. They even have two separate names to go by, one male and one female. My advice to you is simply be yourself. c: If you feel that you are male one day, then you are male. If you feel female the next, then you're female. You dress however you desire and be comfortable~

Apparently it is something called an Androgyne? It is not that I am 'fluid' and one day I might want to be one and the other I want to be the other, but more I feel like both at all times and express that, just sometimes a bit more then other times. Sorry if I did not explain it well, I am bad at expressiion. Also thank you for the response!

I'm pre-T and pre-Op FtM.
Thank you for this.
It is a perfect representation of how it feels to be trans.
