Has your understanding of your gender changed since you transitioned?

hanjonatan hanjonatan
a question for those of you who are post-transition or have started transitioning (socially and/or medically).

has your understanding of your own gender changed since you came out? i'm thinking in terms of being "binary identified" or not, for example - did you start out identifying as genderqueer and then come to understand yourself as being binary, or vice versa? how do you think physically transitioning has impacted that, if at all?

I started out as genderqueer, then gender fluid, then male, then fluid, and now I'm just me. It's a lot less of a headache. But I definitely understand what gender is a LOT better now.

At first I was really hesitant about the feminine side of me. A lot of the information about gender that I was receiving pretty much perceived gender and masculinity/femininity as the same thing. (Like those booklets you read in the doctor's office. One of them I said pretty much said "If your daughter tends to resist the female social norms, such as playing with dolls, wearing dresses, or etc. then she way be trans." I never resisted those norms. I still like wearing sexy lingerie and that is OK because I know I am male and have gained some positive experience from living in a female identity. I'm kind of a femmie boy, but I am totally cool with that. I don't have to worry about anyone else judging me because my childhood scrapbooks were filled with frills and lace and bright pink hot wheels. I still think all those things are awesome.
