Ok, this is gonna sound weird, and I'm sorry if I offend anyone. (Small note, came out bisexual this year.) I should ask a professional but I am not comfortable with that yet, that's hard to get too, especially with homophobic and DEFINITELY transphobic parents. So I'm here, hoping to find an answer to why why I feel so confused. Recently, I've been feeling uncomfortable/annoyed with gender stereotypes especially with my friend group, all my close friends are female, I just get along with females much better, yet I feel excluded whether its going to the bathrooms and being separated from them, if its getting changed, i feel left out, which I feel some people may take as perverted because, nakedness. I feel disconnected when talking about generally female topics, conversations I cannot contribute in because I am male. Overall, just not happy with my social situation. My body and genitals is a strange grey area, I don't really care about them, I'm not exactly uncomfortable my body, but I dislike it and I would not be against suddenly being able to switch sex. My main problem is in the social aspect. I want to be able to be close with my friends, I tend to be a clingy person, but people that see would assume I'm dating one of them. Recently me, and my other three friends, (all female, like I said) had a small party, and because it was just us and (We will call her Jess) Jess' mother, we all did our makeup, including myself because why not, I'm pretty gay. When I did that, I felt a lot happier with myself, I was more comfortable and I could look in a mirror and like what I see, basically I was comfortable with being feminine and more outgoing. So, with all that said, could that be considered dysphoria? I am very hesitant to suddenly decide something like this, since I don't want to take away from people who are trans and need to transition, when I think dysphoria, I think major discomfort over your body and genitals, like "you are trapped in the wrong gender". I don't think I have that, I'm not the most educated on dysphoria and trans, so that's why I'm here, and I hope I am not offending people with what I've said or the terms I use. I tried talking to Jess about this, but that didn't help too much since I felt i came off as stupid and maybe perverted, "I feel left out when I can't get changed with everyone else, when I have to get kicked out of the room so everyone else can change clothes." Saying that to her made me feel I came off wrong, so I just ended up dropping it, because I was never gonna be able to get my point across. Sorry this is really long. But thanks if you took your time to read and answer. Coopo.
