i was molested for about 12 years of my life, and ever since i was eight i’ve had feelings that i couldn’t explain. i knew i yearned to be something else, or better yet, somebody else. i’ve known for a while that i was transgender (ftm), yet every single time i bring it up to my therapist or a parent i’m told i just don’t want to attract the other gender. it hurts so deeply that they want to put it off as an excuse. i just want them to realize that what happened to me doesn’t define what i want to truly identify as.
