“Layer by layer I removed all that I thought I was, all that I thought I had to be and in the moment I was left standing naked and vulnerable without identities and labels, I remembered, I am that I am.”
- Lenita Vangellis
Am I still FTM if I don't like being referred to as a "man"? I'm still pretty young, so whenever I refer to myself, I use "boy" or "guy", but the word "man" just makes me feel awkward and uncomfortable. It confuses me, because I feel like identifying as a male means feeling like a man, but I can't stand the word. It makes me feel like less of a guy. Does that make sense?
