If you experience gender dysphoria what are your personal ways you like to deal with it?

      I like playing games that let you make your own avatar, so I can make one that looks like how I wish I did. Also online dollmakers. Then I just daydream everyday situations but instead of me, I imagine that avatar doing what I would do.

      Ahahhah I don't.... ._. I just cope.. But sometimes I feel better when I wear baggy clothes or clothes I really like .. dressing masculine.. make up that makes me look more masculine .. stuff like that Or just refusing to be sad and telling myself I'm hot even if I'm average at best

      FTM here :] i watch my favorite movies and hide under a blanket when it gets bad. on an okay day, i do my hair. Hair can make a huge difference. We're in this together, brother :]

      I'm FTM and I've actually taken a lot of comfort in male Kpop idols and Genshin characters lately. Many of the male characters are not traditionally masculine, but are still fawned over by the fans as attractive men. There are a couple that look very similar to how I do now, and it is very validating to know that these characters that look like me are unquestionably seen as men. It's obviously not a one-size-fits-all solution but it's helped my confidence a lot

        @Cloudlight Yeah! Fandoms seem to have a comforting aspect to them its very nice.

      Move to Denver and then transition. That's how I dealt with it

        @AlikeMe oh man i actually was planning on moving to colorado! Ive been there theres alot of chill people and they are very accepting. They have protective laws too which is very nice :)

          @Cheeese caution about Colorado as a whole: article 26 of our Constitution give cities with population of more than 2,000 at census which aren't consolidated city-counties "home rule" which de facto means that only laws that the city likes are enforced in that city. Prime examples are Colorado Springs and Castle Rock. Consolidated city-counties are Denver and Broomfield, meaning that state law is fully in effect in those cities.

      Depends whether or not you're able to transition safely.
