I feel like a guy even though I’m a girl. My mom thinks I’m too young for the surgery (which I agree,) but she teases me that I want to wear guys clothes etc. She is supportive of trans people but is for some reason scared that I might be.
I only liked pink when I was under six and I only stopped wearing dresses roughly 6 months ago. Please help. When I told my friends they just laughed and started to tell me that I’m not a guy and “you’d look bad with short hair” or “you look good as a girl, you ungrateful bitch” and “I didn’t even get a chance to give you a makeover .” 😦

Oh wow! What a difficult situation.
I guess it depends what country you’re in, but hopefully you can find a professional to talk to about this, to help you figure out your options and help you understand how you’re feeling.
It sounds like maybe some people in your life will be helpful once they get a chance to get used to the idea.
Good luck xxx
I’d just like to encourage you and let you know that God loves you just the way you are. Trying to filter your feelings can be difficult. Just because you like things that our society deems as feminine or masculine doesn’t mean that you have to change yourself to fit into those criteria. I do agree that you may need to speak with a professional to better understand what your going through. If no one has shared this with you, you should know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. I would caution you on giving to much power to your “FEELINGS” . Feelings change so easily. When i was young i wanted a tatoo of something so dumb and thank God someone a little older than me talked me out of it. Cause now that im older i dont feel the same way about that decision i was making at that time. Feelings change like the weather. When you start school the first day your excited and then after while that excitement fades. Then your feelings towards school change from excitement to i hate going. lol I believe that God didn’t make any mistakes giving you the mind and body you have. He has a special purpose for you and your life with all your complexities. Embrace who you are and not how you feel. Those are two different things. Hope this helps you find clarity.
I think this might help you and your mom. She doesn’t know what to do I bet, and uses the teasing as humor to help deal with the situation.
