If you're seriously asking yourself if you're trans, you're probably trans.
If you think you might NOT be trans and that SCARES you, you're DEFINITELY trans.
Cisgender people CERTAINLY don't find the idea of NOT having to go through years of treatment, abuse and discrimination to be true to themselves *UPSETTING*
Then, once I got past that, and started trying to be an ally, I still maintained that kernel of existential doubt - sure, OTHER trans people were valid, but me? No, no, I was an imposter, a fraud.
REAL trans people suffer and I'm not suffering, I told the man in the mirror, unable to stand the sight of him
REAL trans people are
REAL trans people do
REAL trans people don't
BUT WHAT DO REAL CIS PEOPLE DO
THEY DON'T NEED TO
THEY JUST KNOW
Well if you're even asking that question, you're not cis enough to be cis.
I spent 31 years lying to myself. Often I'd tell myself it was too late. But it's NEVER too late. So many brave trans people helped me see.
But please: accept yourself.
I don't want anyone to make the same mistake I did ever again.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
YOU DESERVE HAPPINESS AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY YOU DESERVE SELF-TRUTH
Please don't let yourself spend thirty-one years to reach the point where you believe those things
Don't let yourself spend ONE MORE SECOND not believing them
