    when it takes 2 hours to find something to wear. then you have to rethink it, because the shoes or boots dont go with the outfit

    When you're rehearsing for a play and say the line "I'm not a girl, I'm a boy", making you feel like you've secretly come out..

    I wish I had that problem. I would gladly give up 8-12 inches of height(and proportinate weight) to look more feminine.

    when you hide from friendly people because they don't know you are transitioning and you feel too dysphoric to explain

    Yes! I imagine being 6'2" would make passing harder.

    ...when you don't have a sister, so never had a chance to present femininely, but nevertheless crocheted your own purse, wore your mom's clothes secretly, and sewed your own skirts.

    When you're trying on hockey shoulder pads, and all you keep thinking is "will these still fit when my shoulders are smaller and my boobs come in?"

    Or when you try on a classy vest and keep thinking "will this still fit when my shoulders are bigger and my chest is flat?"

    When you have that one item that you keep in the back of your closet from the days before you started transitioning...that one you pull out to see how far you've come along...the "if I can pass in this, I can pass in anything!" item.

    Or maybe that's just me. :rolle:

    This...but in my case, it's struggling with the desire to have slim, glorious legs versus the reality that I'll probably just gain muscle under that thigh fat, and have more prominently curvy thighs as a result. :dry:

    When you watch a super graphic video showing the entire surgical procedure of a MtF reassignment surgery and your only thought is "can't wait."

    Did that. One of the things that really drove home the fact that I'm trans too.

    You have a sock drawer, underwear drawer, and dick drawer. Or is that just me?
