When did you learn the term "transgender" referred to you?
That's Hannah up there.

Well, You see I grew up in a Christian house with 5 older siblings (3 sisters and 1 brother).  Yes, I grew up as a little girl and never really heard the term Trans till about the age of twelve or so. During that time I knew there was something different about me compared to the other kids I played with but obviously didn't really pay much attention to it. My friends and I played "imaginary games" Where now I'd just call it poor roleplay. hah. But they always had me play the boy roles and told me that I'd make a really cool guy or that I'd be better as one. Which only furthered my confusion though I didn't think too much into it.  

Once I started 6th grade I instantly became best friends with this girl named Lucy. I found her adorable, really nice, cool, and slowly found that my feelings drifted from best friend to love interest I guess. So one night when I slept over she kissed me. So I told her how I felt and she told me in these words,

"but you're a girl."

And of course I was devastated and was sadly hung up about it for the rest of my 6th grade experience. At school she referred to me as a "lezbo" and things like that to add onto my growing depression. I was upset because I didn't think of it like that and thought of myself as a guy just liking a girl. It kinda sounds weird when I write it but yeah…

So during that summer I stayed in my house and was too ashamed and afraid to leave my house till I moved to this shitty little town. At first I was so excited for the change of scenery and people. The first day of school I was reunited with a childhood buddy named Jordan which was nice since I was new. I made a best friend which I've mentioned on my blog before- Madison. Months after adjusting to the new area, she got me to get a "scene" haircut and dress with more femininity.I have a small bust size and was pressured to get into push ups to look more "attractive". So I did. People started talking to me and liking me more because my hair was really different and all so I stood out like a leprechaun in a grey-scale background. But to be completely and absolutely honest with you, I wasn't happy.

During the summer afterwards I slowly was able to grasp the idea of Transgender and the more and more that I read about it, The more I found that I could understand and relate to it. Had a few chats with my older friends (in their twenties.) about it too and yeah sorry I dragged this on so long I didn't mean to. o ^ o

So, Hi I'm Kyle.
Yep.

Okay back on topic,
My friend/EX boyfriend is trans. His name is Hunter(I picked out the name for him....)
I was hanging out with him back before he knew what trans was, and told me
"I don't want to be a girl anymore..."
"What?"
"I just...Feel like a boy. Is this wierd or..."
Then I explained what trans was. And Doodly doo,I got to pick his name.His parents were really upset...
Oh well.
Yeah,we had to part ways because he moved schools do to bullying. I get to see him next year,since i'm moving to his school! SHFASFHASDASHZ

You know, oddly enough this kinda helped me understand more about myself. ;3; Similar childhood... even my sister and mom said I should have been a boy-and half the time I feel that way too, even though my 'male' side [I've named Alex] is gay and I've even drawn him in variations [under the Japanese translation of the name, Arekkusu]. I love the suffix -kun vs any of the others. ;3; Just fits, you know?

But it kinda is funny when people can't tell what gender you are... its a huge troll opportunity... and be all 'you've just been owned... and you don't even know it'.

It seems like you and I are incredibly similar in this matter... Even down to the playing 'imaginary games', where I was always made to be a boy because, well, I grew up around boys and none of them wanted to have a girl character in our games.. It was very refreshing to read something that was so similar to my own life, except the hair i suppose c: I just shaved off a part of the hair on the left side of my head and stretched my ears. I would say perhaps the hardest thing for my was coming to a point where I accepted being trans and was able to try to describe it to my friends... who not all accepted it very well.. I also enjoy that you have taken a boy's name... I still go by Jessica or Dove, but if and when I ever actually just say 'fuck it i'm not a girl anymore' I would go by Nicholas.

Anyways, thank you for writing this, and possibly reading this drab comment c:

I get the "oh no. You're way too pretty to be a boy" or "what a waste." I've also gotten "but you'll always be Sarah to me." Erg.

You're awesome. I wish I was brave enough to do something like this. I just don't have the confidence yet.

Yeah, I still get the "but aren't you lesbian or something?" question a lot...I lived as a girl until I was close to adolescence, then it hit me, kinda like when you're trying to figure out a question when it suddenly all comes together. It just sorta...clicked. :P
