    Maybe we'll do something funnier...

    - the only thing you really worry about transitioning is the size of your penis
    - you constantly stand in front of the mirror after workout and are fully convinced that you look really damn masculine
    - everybody believes you're 3-5 years younger than you are

    Girls, feel free to join in this thread

    Every time you get out of the shower with wet hair you think you look like young Leonardo DiCaprio (or maybe that's just me...)

    -You make that pouty male selfie face in the mirror and you're convinced you look damn gorgeous
    -You purposefully make your already bushy eyebrows look even darker so you look more male
    -A stranger calls you by the right pronouns and you can't stop talking about it for literal days

    Yeah, although, I think I'm slowly becoming desensitised to YouTube comments now since it's usually the same ignorant rubbish and lame jokes that weren't funny the first time.

    But yup basically everyone is taller :/

    you're asking your confidant for the millionth time: be honest now, do you think anyone noticed anything?

    when you're walking with your girlfriend on the street and you're laughing crazy cause we both say that cute guy looked at me!!! no, no darling, @ me ^_^

    and when you're doing voice impressions in the kitchen thinking you sound not nearly enough of how you'd like to sound like

    You get asked for your ID when you want to buy beer...even when you're far older. (Btw bros we'd be awesome vampires we look like teen boys forever)

    When a customer at work accidently calls you ma'am, and you get all excited, even though she's correcting herself...

    When you dither outside the public toilets and try to convince yourself that that guy is not staring at you critically before giving in and queueing up in the ladies anyway.

    When a customer at work accidentally calls you miss and you want to dig yourself a hole and sit in it until the world ends:bang:

    You spend all day stressing about whether the bulge in your pants looks realistic or not.

    You wake up and go to sleep with shoulder and back pain every day.

    When you go to buy a hair product/scent/soap/other hygiene item that matches the gender you identify with and you feel like everyone is judging you

    Alternatively, when the lady at the scent store very cheerfully helps you pick out a cologne without acting weird and makes you feel like a million bucks

    When you have to buy tampons or pads and try to get in and out as fast as possible without anyone seeing you

    Staring at the peach fuzz on your chin and trying to convince yourself it's darker than it really is. Staring at your legs in the mirror thinking "DO THESE PANTS MAKE MY BUTT LOOK BIG?!??!?". Pulling the baby fat on your face towards your ears to try and make yourself look less like a giant blob. Etc.

    When you spend hours looking at celebrities you wish you look like.

    When you go to get your hair professionally cut and the person insists you want a pixie cut, with a nice profile, and you have to point to a guy getting his hair cut and say, No, like his hair.

    This is more based on a personal experience than trying to be #Relatable lol...

    When you have like 1 shirt that makes you feel like you really confidently pass and it shrinks by like less than a centimeter in the wash and your dysphoria causes you to totally overreact and have a meltdown because now you must "just look like a girl in boys clothes".

    ...it makes me feel better to lie to myself than to know no matter what everyone still just probably sees me as an androgynous girl...its not their fault they don't know I guess though...
