    When a kid asks you stuff like "if you are a boy why do you wear both earrings" and you die from the inside because the only person that is usuing your correct pronouns are like 3 year olds at a park

    when you are looking at the new wardrobe rack you bought with like 5 dresses on it, and cant stop smiling even as you wonder how you're going to get space for it in your bedroom. haha.

    When you are never more excited to go to the doctor as when it concerns paperwork and consultations to get you on HRT.

    I was volunteering at a summer camp for little kids and they didn't know what my gender was but everytime they asked i just didn't properly answer. It was kind of cute but also exhausting.

    This was before i really started looking into what my gender might be but i knew i wasn't comfortable with my assigned at birth gender.

    When you do a silent little fight the whole day for not letting any guy hold the door for you. At least I realized that gentle manners are not dead.

    When you start feeling attraction for a guy and want him to befriend you like the other guys BUT at the same time to show some interest in you despite being 90% likely to be straight.

    << Yes! Daily!

    Also when you constantly worry about people’s perception of you in public. When you have confidence to walk into a woman’s toilet but then get paranoid once inside that people will stare at you when you leave it. When you also get misgendered and it sends you into a mental breakdown. When you find a bit of happiness purchasing clothes and toiletries in the desired gender. When all you can picture is yourself as a woman in the future finally happy

    When you are watching game of thrones and are jealous of how gorgeous Daenerys Targaryen is, but everyone thinks you like her because she is "hot".
    (Men are unnecessarily nasty).

    See, if I watched game of thrones, both of those would apply. But I don't watch game of thrones, so neither apply.

    you have any thoughts of being masculine, but then you go "Do I haaaafff taaa?"
