I'm 23, and I don't know why I suddenly now feel the way I do in regards to this extreme discomfort I have with myself. It just seemed to happen one day, me questioning my gender identity years ago, and it was something that I buried deep into my subconscious and tried to forget about. You see, I've got conservative parents with a rather regressive old school view on gender. I cannot afford to experiment around with my presentation for as long as I am living with them, nor can I be open with them about these sort of thoughts. They were really shocked when I told them I was into guys at the age of 18, and they're of the particular religious sort that think that sort of thing is a sin. This is just to give you a picture of my current situation. Now, I've had to come to the horrific realization that I hate being a guy and I am feeling increasingly uncomfortable, sad, and out of place with my presentation and body. I'd rather come out as bisexual to my parents all over again than have to go through with these feelings I have. Feelings that are getting worse as time goes on, and I'm scared, I'm scared because I don't know what to do.
