What prompted you to really decide that you were trans? Like, what made you say: “Yep, I’m trans for sure.”?

      I used to go to women's meetings in church and i felt like i was in such the wrong place for me. Now im older, and i was warching Jamiedodger on YouTube...and i was like'for some reason i really relate to this, even though im not trans'... then it clicked one day, and i was like 'oh my gosh...i am trans.' But it was difficult because im nonbinary, not a transman, and something still seemed off until i realized it.

      Ha - FTM, falling pretty strictly in the binary here. I was dressing, living, and generally existing as a masculine person for most of my childhood, but still lived as a woman. (still had long hair, wore makeup, and tried to be the "chapstick bisexual"). Saw a "Trans Guy Bingo" card online, and got a bingo. Five times. That was the wake up call I needed, BINGO!

      Actually, it was many past experiences combined to make me realize I was a trans girl. There were many instances where I’d make my avatar look more feminine, or I would want to dance only the girl’s part in a game. It all combined and I eventually found who I was through time and reflection.

      When I cut my hair really short. I finally felt like I was finally the boy I had always longed to be

      I had asked my friends to try using different pronouns for me - particularly, they/them and he/him. i realized how happy being called "he" made me feel - like a pressure in my chest was lifted, and like someone was giving me a warm hug after a long day. It really clicked for me then, and I've happily identified as a transgender man since 8th grade :)!

      this is kind of a funny story but i first realized by watching a roseboy tiktok compilation on YouTube. it made me realize and understand more than gender is just a construct and that people can be a boy without looking like one. at first i thought i was agender/non-binary, but now i identify as a gender non-conforming trans man. i am a man, i want to be seen and referred to as a man, but i may not present like a man

      Also, we did another game where boys went to one side of the room and girls went to the other side. I'm afab [a female at birth] so I didn't really want to go to the girls side, but I did. My teacher kind of caught on and she stopped me and said "you can stay in the middle if you want" and I basically started bawling because nobody understood me that way before.

        @Cameron_Cameron_000 thats so sweet of the teacher!

      At school in 7th grade, my teacher would do this game where we would be in a circle and take turns saying our name. There was someone who had already had my dead name, so I took it as an opportunity to tell people my name was actually Cameron. And now everyone calls me Cameron without thinking about it. [I'm agender and use they/them pronouns, please!]

      When I was around 12 I had just cut my hair short for the first time, and strangers started gendering to me as male in public. I really, really enjoyed it. I had been questioning my gender for a while at that point, but that really set it in stone for me that I was a trans man.
