I feel like I should have been born with a Penis

Unread postby NIKKI6037 » Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:21 pm

Is there something wrong with me that I think I should have been born with a penis and testes. I imagine and visualize using the men’s room, and having a man’s role and wish I could be called a father. I wish I could feel masculine and had a penis and scrotum and testosterone to define my manliness.

The problem is that I never felt like I had the support to ever come out and accepted myself for who I am but have always wanted to be accepted as a male.

Hi Nikki,

Nope, there is nothing wrong with those feelings! Being Trans is nothing to be ashamed of, and I'm sorry to hear that you never felt that you had the support needed to come out. I think something you'd really benefit from reading right now is our Trans Summer School series, as it offers any information you might need if you are considering transitioning as well as support for a lot of what you're feeling right now: Welcome to Trans Summer School!

Thank you jacob.

It just feels like this whole time everyday is a new day where I feel castrated all over again and I have to recalibrate my mental identity to my physical identity because deep down I feel like a male who is missing my penis. I feel like I should be somebody’s father and be accepted as a man in society.

Hey Songague,

So glad to hear this thread helped you :) Feel free to start a thread of your own if you'd like to talk more about bodies, gender identity, being trans, or anything else! We'd love to chat with you.
