Questioning Transgender

Dorian94's picture

Hi. I am new here. I am in the process of figuring out if I'm Transgender or not. I have as long as I can remember wanted to be called he instead of she. In my senior year at high school I made this shirt that said on it "Please ask me about my pronoun preference" I love wearing it. When I am asked what my pronoun preference is by my professors I say he. They often ask me if I want them to call me by that pronoun in class. I say it's up to them since I don't want to distract or make other students feel uncomfortable. I am wondering if I should say yes to it instead. I also want to use the male bathroom but can't because of the way I read. I am trying to change my appearance to read more as male. Do any of you have any ideas? I feel that I am in the wrong bathroom when I go into the female one. I have gone in the male's room when no one was around to see what it was like and it felt right to me. Is it a good possibility that I am Transgender? Am I the only one who is questioning this? It seems to me that everyone who is transgender just somehow knows.
Thanks for reading,
Dorian94

Sounds like you're pretty much the definition of transgender.

You don't have to look it to be transgender. It's all about your mindset. Unfortunately, there is only one other transgender (at least I think so) on here.

question

can you tell me who that is? I am just looking for someone to connect to. I am lonely. Thanks for reading.

She might not identify as transgender, but she was a man before her long break, so you'll have to ask.
