People usually assume that I'm a girl. It's very rare that even people that know my pronouns are he/him/his actually use it.
And that almost made me kill myself, for real.
For every time someone called me she/her a new cut appeared somewhere on my body.
I really hate it.
I don't self harm anymore but that still doesn't make it ok to use she/her pronouns.
Never EVER in any situation call me she/her.
It hurts like shit!
But now more and more people have started to use the right pronouns for me, which makes me unbelievably happy!
The best compliment I can get is "you look so masculine" or "I see you as a normal boy" , because some people think that trans guys aren't "real guys",like that makes me SO happy!! I tear up every time I think that maybe one day, I can get testosterone, maybe even top surgery.
That is my dream.
One thing that hurts me a lot is when I tell an adult that I'm transgender and they say "yeah a lot of teens feel that way nowadays" like, it's not my fault that I feel like a boy now is it?! I can't help that other people also feel this way!
But still it makes me feel guilty...
I didn't choose to be trans I can't help it.
It's just who I am,
A trans boy.
I might not be super masculine 24/7 but I'm no less male because of that.
Don't let anyone tell you who you are because you are you!

It's about creating yourself"
