Being transgender is something you’re born as and can never change!

Being transgender is something you’re born as and can never change!

I wanted to share a MyTake explaining that being transgender is how you’re born because I see a lot of people calling it a mental illness!

My very first memories are of thinking I’m a girl! I remember I learned it’s “wrong” for me to be a girl when I was wearing my grandmothers panty hose and got in trouble. I still always wanted to be a girl but I tried to pretend to be a boy because I didn’t know sex changes are possible when I was little. But I always told my girl friends I wish I was a girl and I always hated playing with the boys because they were so rough and gross!

When I was 4 years old I would pray before bed that Jesus let me wake up as a girl but of course it never worked. My cousin and her friend dressed me up as a girl when I was 7 and I was so surprised when I looked in the mirror! I really looked like a girl and it was the very first time I felt happy with my reflection! 🤗

In the 7th grade I learned sex changes are a real thing and I was able to repress my feelings for only a year after. I came out as gay in the 8th grade but I knew deep down that I wasn’t gay. I liked boys but being gay never felt right!

A friend helped me finally accept that I’m transgender when I was 13. She told me I should get a sex change after I told her that I don’t feel gay because I wanted to be a guys girlfriend not his boyfriend. When I realized I needed a sex change I just felt like uh oh. I wanted to change it so bad! I tried everything I could to stop these feelings including prayer but it never worked! At 14 I finally accepted it and started dressing as a girl full time and in June of 2010 at 15 I bought hormones off the internet with my allowance and stopped the nightmare of male puberty! Male puberty made me absolutely suicidal I was not ever going to be ok with being bulky and hairy! 🤮

Now at 24 I’m so happy with my body! I know I’ll never have a true female body until I go to heaven but my body is so close now that I feel comfy and cute and happy!! 🤗

I would never ever be happy in a mans body. It’s not a mental illness it’s how we’re born! We can’t change it no matter how much we try! We feel like this our entire lives from our very first memories! Thank you for reading I hope this MyTake reached out to at least 1 person 😃

  • I don't believe it's possible for a female soul, if you will, to become trapped in a male body. I believe God makes us exactly the way we are SUPPOSED to be at birth. I believe that what it means to be a guy or girl is strictly genetics but that it also is somewhat representative of the responsibilities to which God calls us.

    Psalm 139:13-14 "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; My soul knows it well."

    I don't believe you have to be content with what's expected of boys by society, only what's expected of men by God. God made you a man and I believe it shows great arrogance to tell God "you got it wrong, you made me wrong."

    Before you say "you can't judge me, this is between me and God." I agree already. I do not want to condemn but warn. I truly hope God blesses you but I also hope that you would fully submit yourself to God and his will. God bless you.

    • It's been shown using brain scans that typically "female" brains can form in physically male bodies, and vice versa.

    • @goaded Intriguing. I was unaware of this. That being said, "trapped in the wrong body" or not, doesn't mean that it's acceptable for anyone's response to be "let me mutilate the body I'm in, in order to be more like the body I want.

    • I wrote a take about it.

      Why do you think you get to decide what's acceptable for someone to do with their body?

  • this isn't 100% true. most children that struggle with their gender in their prepuberty time will end up identifying with their gender and 90+% of them will end up being perfectly fine because hormones will settle on normal levels during puberty. yes some of them end up being still transgender after puberty and if we only speak about those, i am 100% with you.

    however these days, modern lgbtq+ asshole doctors will give hormones to children who struggle with gender identity and it has been shown that litterally ZERO of those will fix themselves during puberty. so the lgbtq+ community actively works at increasing the problem, making it an issue that you're not porn with. they even go so far that they claim you're not born with this based on tests IGNORING that they were the ones messing with nature in the first place.

    • *born with -.-

    • I hate the lgbt community these days

  • I agree and I love that little caption... it's funny, but true!

    People become women, they aren't born women, and not all of them are born as girls!

  • Nice writing 👍

  • I think its very brave of you to speak openly how you feel, I expect its quiet hard for you looking into mirrors and seeing a penis instead of a vagina.

  • It is no mental illness! (Though the dysphoria that some have could cause a mental illness!) I wish you all the best in life :)

  • Sure but why change... why not just be that unique girl in a males body
    ? its not like you know the different that a panties are for females and boxers are for men... thats just society
    but who you are, you didn't have to buy hormones... know what I mean?

  • Actually the DSM5 which is what psychologists use to determine if someone is mentally Ill.. calls this a mental illness.

    • So what, it used to call homosexuality a mental illness.

    • "Q: Is being transgender a mental illness?

      A: No. In 2013, the term “gender identity disorder” was eliminated from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The term was replaced by “gender dysphoria,” which focuses attention on those who feel distressed by their gender identity.

      The American Psychiatric Association, which publishes the DSM, stated that “gender nonconformity is not in itself a mental disorder. The critical element of gender dysphoria is the presence of clinically significant distress associated with the condition.” Experts say much of the distress is associated with societal attitudes rather than gender identity."

    • Homosexuals normally dont cut off parts of their body.

  • Very nicely written, I'm glad you're happy now. I wrote a related take a little while ago, which might interest you.

    Some things you may not know about Transgenderism! ↗

  • Yes you are born that way, like being born with a missing limb or crooked spine etc. It's a birth defect and obviously a mental illness. Only a fool or insane person would think otherwise. Also the commies telling you it's normal and trying to pass laws promoting your mental disorder and help you cut up your body in an attempt at a "sex change" aren't your friends. Let me explain to you, that only goes until Muslims start to object to it, they you go under the bus. That's happening already. Likely it will get to the point that if you're in public in a dress or something you'll be arrested for offending Muslims. The communists want that muz fire power on their side and will kiss ass to get it. Wise up kid and take the red pill, the right are your only hope and we'll work on your head where the problem is not your crotch. This should have been done long ago and their might even have been an effective treatment by now.

  • Not mental ill just dumb.

    Transgender by definition is a TRANSitional state. You can't be born into a transitional state.

    It's a bit fucking stupid to say you can't change when that's your ultimate goal.

    • I was born a girl in a boy’s body

    • Mmm yes that doesn't make you a baby trans mate it makes you born a boy who some time later comes to realise you identify as female. Even THEN it doesn't make you trans until you actually start to transition. I mean I'm no expert on the subject I'm just talking about the use of English language

  • While i understand this... i can never get behind a community that wishes men to accept them as women, and feel like its ok to lie about their status. I might get hate for what i said but it is the truth.

    • I don’t feel like it’s ok for people to lie about it.

    • Nor do I. To me if something sexual happens, it becomes rape by fraud.

  • Gender dysphoria is a medical condition regardless of what the politicians say, it a physical fact.

    You can't say for sure if you are born with gender dysphoria or not, since it is still being researched and there is no conclusive evidence yet.

    Another fact, you will always be in a man's body since sex change is an illusion. You can look like a women, but you won't ever be one. You will need surgery and life long hormonal treatment, to get and keep the appearance of a women. But you will never be one, the DNA and chromosomes won't change, you adam's apple won't change, you won't get internal female parts, you will never smell like a women or get any of the difference the thousands of gene differences in men and women makes.

    It is a mental illness from a medical standpoint, and just because politicians made is not an official mental illness any more, doesn't make it so. You can't change the physical reality by majority votes in parliament.

    • None of that matters to me

    • Fair enough, you are a free man in a free country do as you please :)

    • WTF is a physical fact? Facts are immaterial and only represent the most supported conclusions. You aren't as smart as you think you are, bud. You're just clinging to things you think you understand, but don't. You don't even know adam's apple reduction is a thing, or that female hormones do change the scent of a person. Hell, if DNA could be changed you'd still be saying it's not original, so therefor not valid. That's the conclusion you just want to reach.

  • So a man who wants to amputate his hand for no reason is considered mentally ill, but a man who wants to amputate his penis for no reason is "transgender"? No. It's mental illness in both cases.

    • Quite simply, it's not "for no reason".

    • @goaded Sure it is. The only reason for one to amputate an appendage is as a means of saving the rest of the body. Amputating one's external genitalia because "it feels right" is the very definition of "for no reason."

    • I want a female body because I’m a woman. Having a vagina is part of having a female body. How do you not understand that. But regardless, I’m never getting the surgery so that’s not a valid point to me. But I still wish I had a vagina. My penis is uncomfortable and I get no pleasure from it.

  • YES, been there got the tee shirt. same as my life. I got within a couple of months from going under the knife. but I looked at my self in the mirror and all I saw was a guy in a dress. You couldn't tell I wasn't female, been living as one for 6 months. But I didn't go through with it. BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE...

  • NOPE!
    It's gender dysphoria, a mental disorder. It can be treated successfully and it's only recently that society has normalized it and people have in droves become deranged into the idea that you can just jump around the gender pool.

    • You didn't read the article, did you. The treatment is sex reassignment, preferably at the onset of puberty.

    • @goaded Oops.. I posted the wrong link. Sorry, the interweb has been poisoned with endless post-modern Marxist bullshit and it makes it hard to find the proper links to actual data anymore.
      The World Health Organization even had to remove "gender identity disorder" from its list of mental disorders.

      These docs stand up to the system and want people to stop simply handing out hormone pills and hacking up genitals.

    • Don't worry, you did find a proper link to actual data. IIRC, the treatment has about an 80% satisfaction rate; obviously, there's room for improvement, but it's not a bad start. Your new link is also good, but it doesn't say that the doctors think the approach is wrong, just that they're not sure it's right. That's perfectly normal in science and will improve the outcomes over time.

  • Gender disphoria just means you have a more female brain. It is a mental illness and the only effective treatment is transitioning.

    I love no-op mtf trans women. Best of both worlds ahaha.

    • I don’t think that it’s a mental illness it’s just how we’re born.

    • I have autism and I was born with it. It's still a disability.

  • That's just what the alphabet people want you to believe

  • No its not thats just a mental delusion just stop

  • Mental illness, a delusional thought, somethings possessing you. Also why you need to trick guys that your a girl? Liking same sex ia one thing, But tricking straight guys is creepy. 😒👎

  • Now wait for the misinformation. Good post.

  • My transgender brother says that being that way is an option everyone is born a certain type of way either gay or straight but no one is born transgender

    • Well your transgender brother is wrong. I bet he’s not really trans if he says it’s a choice.

    • Who are you to say that he is wrong he is what he is if that's how he feel that's how he feels you can't tell him that he's wrong what makes you think that yours special because you can voice your opinion guess what what you said is your opinion not a fact are you transgendered if not how could you understand

    • I’m tired of phony “trans” people who think it makes them cool. This is serious to me.
