Hey, y'all! (!) I don't know if this is a repeat thread, but I've seen this pop up a few times in other places, and I'm curious. What do y'all make of the potential link between autism and transgenderism? D'you think they both have something to do with prenatal T levels? Do you think that autism can prevent people from realizing that they're transgender at an early age? I myself am a mildly autistic (Aspie) FTM with distinctly male finger ratios (indicating higher levels of prenatal T). I suspect that part of the reason that it took me so long to figure out my identity is that I: a) Am very slow at understanding emotions, even my own, and thus didn't figure out that I was dissatisfied with my gender until recently b) Was terrified of 'not fitting in', and thus did my best to act like a stereotypical straight cisgender girl so that people wouldn't think I was even weirder than I already felt. What about y'all? Any thoughts?
