I guess I would consider myself a trans guy, but I don’t want hormones or any kind of surgery. I mean, if I were able to and was brave enough to do it. Then yeah, I’d take that chance. But it’s not something I believe is necessary to be who I am. to feel like a real guy, a dude.
Not every trans person wants the hormones or the surgeries, most do though. I feel that it’s not something I need.
Even with the body that I have now, I feel like a dude. My boobs are basically my balls, just up higher on my body. And instead of a penis, I have a vagina that doesn’t hurt much when kicked or hit.
It’s not about the anatomy, it’s about the persons feelings and preferences about it all. It’s different for everybody.
I am comfortable, I am me.
