We were taught about the notion of transgender in the high school I went to and I remember thinking about it's relevance to me as a female. I am very much not your stereotypical female especially not then. I didn't want to be a mother, I thought the whole idea of having a baby inside of me was weird, I loved science, I was outspoken... was I really a male inside a female body?
In the end I decided I was me inside my own body. And the idea of getting gender reassignment was pretty hardcore; would I be swapping the frying pan for the fire? I didn't know at the time, because I didn't have a strong idea of the benefits of being a man beside the few men I knew were pretty awful, people I definitely did not want to be.
Now I have a fuller understanding of the idea of what it means to be female and male within the context of society. I have found more female role models, people I'd never heard of until I was older, and it helped me a lot knowing about women who went on adventures and talked to people and did things on their own.
If you feel the need to transition from one gender to the other, of course I support your decision, but is it society forcing you to feel uncomfortable within your own skin? Perhaps we need to change society to broaden gender roles?
