    when my friends from Trans support group refer to me as Sarah.

    when my therapist calls me 'girl' or by my real name.

    when I was at trans group and the facilitator brought out a big box of unused make up and told us to pick what we wanted and we all had a big girl session talking about makeup and hair etc.

    When I look at cute lingerie online, and I realize I like the girl wearing it as much as I want to clothes themselves. :wink:

    I'm actually not even sure how bi I am anymore. I kinda think I might just be a lesbian, but not sure.

    This is why bra shopping is awkward. I always feel so awkward bra shopping in shops, seeing all those lingerie models. :icon_redf

    It makes me feel paranoid, like what if I look/linger in that section too long? Do people think I'm gay? Do I want people to know? Am I overthinking this? Yes. Yes I am. :eusa_doh:

    You could say that, yeah. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I suppose that's quite fitting for this thread.

    It could be worse, you could feel like I do. Feel really gay because you want a piece of that, and really sad because you weren't born like her. :icon_sad:

    Yeah, true. It's hard for me to imagine that, I suppose I forget how lucky I am in that regard. There have been times where I questioned my gender, but never seriously. Best of luck to you anyway, hopefully your friends took the news well. If you ever want to message me on my wall you are welcome to, can't say I'd be much use but...yeah.

    drove my parents home last night and my playlist played a female cover of Take Me To Church, followed by Awolnation's Woman Woman, followed by Charli XCX's Girlfriend... If they didn't know I was gay, the might do now :eusa_danc

    ...I tried to strike up a random conversation at a metal show and the guy I said "so how'd you enjoy the show?" when we were standing in line and got the response, "sorry, not interested."

    Technically yesterday, but pretty sure it counts. I saw this rainbow coffee mug saying "No One Knows I'm Gay" in a shop I was in with my mum, pointed it out to her and made a joke of it. She laughed at least even if she didn't say anything.

    It feels good being able to admit it, even if its not exactly breakfast table conversation right now.

    Standing around in the tube, spots a hot girl. She leaves, then in comes a hot guy.

    It's times like these that I'm glad I can appreciate both sides of the equation.

    I was reading the 'Female - Tops vs. Bottoms' thread and I thought...sometime, down the road, when I meet the right woman, I'm going to be able to contribute to a thread like this. It made me smile to myself. :slight_smile:
