For the transsexual anon (Female wanting to be male), I have some tips for you and it was too long to send in an ask, so here I am.
(Also, the link is a great site right here on tumblr for FtM transsexuals).
I have been going to trans psychiatry for four years now and the thing I have been told the most is that no one will understand.
It’s pretty sad that it is this way because you really want the people you love to understand how you feel. There is basically no way to explain to someone that “you feel wrong” just the way it’s impossible to explain a color to someone who’s never seen it.
I came out to my mother six years ago and she’s unfortunately not so supportive of my decision, but that’s her deal.
What you can try to tell your parents is this:
"What if you woke up one day and you had a woman’s body, after living your whole life as a man, and you knew that there was a chance to make it right, wouldn’t you take that chance? Wouldn’t you try to become the one you’ve always felt like you are?"
And vice verca.
I talked to my mom this way and she nodded saying “fine fine” she understood that it was an awful feeling, but no more than that.
It takes a lot of courage and bravery to explain to people, to go to the trans psychiatrist and the doctors, but if it’s what you feel is right, then that’s what you need to do.
I hope that what little I have to offer helped, and I hope that the link helps as well, they are all very kind and helpful on there so don’t be afraid to submit a question :)
Or does that just make me a weird creeper?
I mean today Chris and I were sitting in Central Park and I saw this gay couple maybe a few years older than us through the park hand in hand and it put the biggest smile on my face (this smile was probably aided by the alcohol I had at dinner). Then on…
Infatuation: foolish or all-absorbing passion or an instance of this: a mere infatuation that will not last.
Lust: To have a very strong sexual desire for someone
Love: 1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. 2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, friend, or lover.
There’s a new boy at my school. His name is Cole. He transferred just over a month ago, I believe it’s been. The second he walked in, I looked at him and started crushing on him. He was just so cute. But I figured it’d go nowhere, because he was probably straight. Then my friend Maddie started getting to know him… She ran up and practically tackled me one afternoon, and all she said was “He’s gay.” She went on to explain he had come out to her during one of their classes. She had early on figured out my crush on him. She promised to introduce us. Basically, the introduction was extremely awkward. He came up, said hi, and left. But that night, he messaged me on Facebook. We proceeded to talk for almost two hours. I told him I’d sit with him on the bus. So I did. And we talked about everything. Then he asked about band. So I took him with me, to the band room. And we continued to talk, and still are, about a lot of stuff. And at some point, I confessed my crush on him. And to my surprise, he confessed to having one back. And that he thinks I’m cute. I couldn’t be happier. <3
