    You're pre T and the walk to the public toilets increases your nervousness for you to choose which to enter...and the feeling of disappointment when you make a last minute ditch into the women's due to the busyness of the pub.

    when you spend the entire day with your breast forms in and even do your outside chores with them, and feel this is the way it's supposed to be, even without makeup, wigs, or overly fem clothes.

    Same, Kodo XD

    When you buy men's deodorant and spray and you beam with pride.
    Or
    When you and your Mom meet one of your moms friends in the store and your mom says, "this is my daughter." and your moms friend stares at you for a minute and then goes, "daughter?" in a small voice to your mom.

    You have a terrible posture because when you put your shoulders back your man boobs pop out. (I read a lot of trans duded do that, I'm guilty too.)

    You have a habit of clenching your teeth because it makes your face look more angular.

    You cry when you see good-looking cis people of your gender.

    When you follow up on news about that head transplant surgery the crazy Italian doctor is about to attempt this year and think of the implications for the transgender community if it ever gets perfected.

    When you hope full sensory neural interfaces will be here sooner rather than later, and that you can at least be who you were supposed to be in a VR environment akin to the Matrix :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:.

    I can dream. :slight_smile:

    You spend a year doubting and questioning and being confused about whether you could possibly be trans...

    ... while being certain transition is right for you, and transitioning, and being so happy to transition.

    I am not a smart man.

    I struggle with this too, but slouching is not behooving of a dansuer or any man for that matter. Head up, shoulders back, stomach in. Be a prince, not a punk.

    When you are driving and your binder starts to roll up and feels like it stops across your nipple! You can't do anything thing about it but endure it till you can get to a private corner somewhere to fix it. :eek:

    Push marketing knows me better than I know myself.

    I hike and do other outdoor stuff. I also buy a lot of stuff online. Youtube somehow put two and two together. The last video I watched started with an ad for a safety harness for women hunters, so that they can lean out safely while hunting from trees. The only things that they missed on were, 1) I'm not really transitioning; I kinda like sitting on the fence (I'm also not quite as femme as their spokesperson), and 2) I don't actually hunt. Still, it was a little surprising and also hilarious.

    I really tried. But I feel like shit. Maybe if I get a good compression shirt. I'm a prince of darkness anyway ^^

    when you spend all day wishing you had a nice skirt, blouse, and knee high boots instead of dress shirt, trousers, and hikers on.
