Bonjour Dark! Comment allez-vous aujourd'hui? I need some advice about something... My best friend keeps telling me that 'I'm not really transgender' because I like to wear make-up and wear dresses. What should I do? Should I stop being feminine and dress more masculine? I fucking hate myself so much. I just want to be normal.
is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity differs from what
is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Gender identity is someone’s internal, personal sense of being a man or a
woman (or as someone outside of that gender binary). For transgender
people, the sex they were assigned at birth and their own internal
gender identity do not match. What this entails, is that being transgender does not signify that you must DRESS THE PART.”
Dark scowled, and banged one of his knees on the underside of his desk from the frustration.
“Your clothes do not determine the way you feel or how you identify. Your interests, your hobbies, the way you speak, the way you think, the way you act, who you love, they do not determine what you yourself know is truth. Your friend is naive to believe that wearing boyish clothes makes someone more of a man, or that wearing dresses makes them too much of a woman. You wear what you desire to wear, lovely, and don’t let any imbecile tell you that you’re too much or too little of anything. You are just right as you are.”
