Warning: This contains mature content. If you are uncomfortable with mentioning of Transgender or Transitioning or blunt language then please do not read any further. I am warning you, ahead of time, so no mean or hurtful comment please. This a very important and mature subject matter.

So, recently I have been looking into Transgender. It began because someone I know is going through a transition themselves. A male to female transitioning. I really wasn't well informed on the subject of Transgenders, so I decided to dive into their world.

I've read many blogs, watched personal videos on Youtube and even got some information from people here on DeviantART. Before I go any farther I just want to say this:

"To the people transitioning or feeling trapped in your own body,

I wish you only the best. Someday soon I hope you can look at yourself in the mirror, and see a reflection you are truly satisfied with. Nothing is worse then being trapped in a foreign body. What started off as a mistake, I can only hope gets corrected and offers you happiness."


Now as for myself, here we go.

As for gender identity, I have always been slightly gender neutral. I enjoy being a female, don't get me wrong, aside from that time of the month. But I always feel 100% comfortable dressing, acting and doing male-stereotyped activities. It's never bothered me.

I feel comfortable as a male or female. Though, before I realized my sexuality, I hated being confused for a male. That isn't the case anymore, happily. Now...when I was younger I did believe I was sealed inside a body that wasn't correct for me.

The reason being that I'm very small busted, and that's made me very self conscious. So to come bat that feeling of horrible self image, I often wished that my body would switch to being a male. In my dreams I could shed my imperfect female body and soar into a more correct skin

So it wasn't that I wanted to become the other gender per say, I just thought that since in my view my female body was lacking, I was supposed to be a male instead. Now, as time has passed and my body has changed, though I'm still small busted I don't feel that desire to change genders anymore.

Being a female is wonderful and I'm content with how I appear now. Sure, there are still things I'd like to fix, but I don't think my desire to change completely is there anymore. At least, not as strong as it was previously. I still love Crossplaying and being a Tomboy if you will.

As stated before I see myself as Gender Neutral. I am biologically a female but have the ability to switch my thoughts, and point of view into either gender. Though I have no desire to permanently change my gender, I know that some do.

My sincerest wish is that they get the chance to be who they feel they are inside. In their heart. Anyone who insults, mocks, torments or abuses someone just because they are Transgenders or Transitioning is a sick, demented, hurtful and pathetic human being.

They are still human. They don't hurt anyone or attack your way of life. So allow them to be the correct gender for themselves.

I realize that because I am not a Transgender or Transitioning that some people may think I have no right to speak my mind on this subject, but that's your problem. I offer my support to the LGBQST community and always will.
Written quickly, but I felt I needed to speak my part.

Well screw them! I am really interested in what you have to say. In fact at the moment I am writing a book in which gender is a strong theme. I have some experiences of my own and I've read some personal experiences of people who fit under the "trans umbrella" but I am looking to hear as many viewpoints as possible in order to build realistic characters. Would you feel comfortable answering some questions about your experiences? We could do it by note, or by email. It doesn't need to be public. If you don't feel comfortable with me asking you any questions don't worry about it though :hug:

Of course, I don't mind answering questions at all. Email or note, both are fine. Whichever is more comfortable for you. :)
