If there was absolutely no downside to it (losing family, friends, etc for doing it), would you transition?
I guess I ask because every time I say “I don’t want to transition,” the why’s keep becoming fewer and fewer, and the more most of them start with “I don’t want to lose…”
I have never felt that living full time or transitioning was right for me.
I have never felt I was born with or that I live in the wrong body.
I do not feel that “this is right” when I am en femme.
I have never felt conflicted, confused, or frustrated about who I am.
So, no, regardless of family and friend support and reaction, I can’t see myself ever transitioning. I am happy in both of my genders. I don’t want to commit to one… ever. And transitioning, from my perspective, would essentially be that. I don’t want to give up my male gender identity any more than I want to give up my female gender identity.
If you are not already, I would encourage you to seek out a gender therapist to talk abut our feelings to help you determine if this is the right step for you. And yes, most of us lose something, or someone, when we want to live our lives the way we feel is right for us.
I wish it were not that way.
