This post by FtM Doctor evoked many different feelings for me and it feels really quite a raw and in-my-face subject for me at this still early stage in my transition. For me right now, it’s incredibly important to me that I am experienced by others as male as this is congruent with what I feel inside. It doesn’t always happen though and sometimes I shrug it off and try and reflect on what it was about me in the moment that gave away I am not an XY male. Other times I get hurt or angry. Occasionally I want to hide away until my body morphs enough and I have had the chest surgery that I really need to feel freedom with my body and fully be myself.
I’ve got more thoughts to add about this in coming weeks as it is such an ongoing thing for me and most transguys I expect, especially early on.
