Q: What is something positive about being trans?
A: I guess for me personally, it’s getting to discover and explore different aspects of my personality. Since I’ve accepted that I’m transgender, I have in general been happier and started to let my feminine side into my everyday life. Plus a lot of the time in my past I’ve had this feeling in my stomach, that I guess you could describe as hollow, but as I’m starting to lose my hang ups about doing girly stuff, it fleetingly feels sort of solid. I assume this is what people feel when they say they feel complete. I owe this to being trans, and I guess I sort of feel like it lets me explore the best of both worlds. I get to do fun girl stuff that guys “can’t” and that’s nice. I’m also discovering a whole hosts of interests that I never knew I had, for example as a guy I have no interest what so ever in male fashion, female on the other hand… This is a cliché but I get it now, why girls like shopping. I’ve spent hours online browsing all the clothes I’d buy if I had the money.
So yeah, overall I’m going to go with learning more about myself.
