taokan asked: Dropping by your inbox to say that your beautiful trans and nonbinary posts brought me so much happiness, and clicking the link to this blog came as just such a pleasant surprise because I'd followed you before, and seeing your name cross my screen again with the added realization that you were like me, was just the most lovely feeling. As a genderfluid transman, seeing your coming out go so well, and you so happy, has made my day so much better than it was. Thank you for that, for being you.
thank you so much!!!
i began the process of transitioning in late january; by which i mean i finally began to question why, ever since i was a little kid, ive felt uncomfortable sometimes when people call me “she,” “lady,” “girl,” etc. and why i’ve always felt right when someone calls me “sir”- even if it’s followed by a hasty apology - Oh Im Sorry Ma’am I Wasnt Really Looking
i was afraid to come out, not just because i was afraid of people’s reactions, but because i know what coming out does; when i first came out as pan about 2 years ago, i finally began to realize that i was much “gayer” than i thought. i was worried that would happen again, i would come out as gf, and suddenly i would be confronted with my gender, with the discomfort i feel when people just assume im a girl
and of course it did, but it was all for the best. i finally told my girlfriend and she was so sweet about it; i almost cried
heh, its funny because ophelia was a cis girl back when i still thought i was a cis girl, and then when i knew i wasnt, they transitioned with me. i was scared to tell anyone though, so i just changed their character page without making a post about it at first (yes, ophelia is officially trans)
i should really post more trans headcanons here; i do on my other blog all the time. theyre so important; it feels so good to be validated, even by fictional characters.
