7013) Sometimes I feel like I should stop interacting with anything trans. Like, stop googling HRT timelines, stop tracking the MTF tag etc. It’s nice not to feel alone in this, but it feels like I can’t look at this stuff without being horribly self-critical. It just makes me focus on the girls whose boobs are bigger than mine, or whose faces are more feminine, or who have boyfriends when I’m always alone. It’s like I look for better versions of myself and it just makes me feel bad :(
6892) Unlike many trans people I do not correct people who refer to me as a he. To be honest, I’d much rather I didn’t do this, because I know deep down that the “proper” use of pronouns would be forced on their part. Nothing about me says “female” after all. I’d much rather be referred to in the wrong way than to feel like people are going out of their way to accommodate me, the freaky looking he/she. Hopefully someday I’ll be referred to this way without needing to say anything.
