Look Like Yourself: Rien

posted by Look Like Yourself Project on Dec 12 at 10:30am

I've always been a tomboy. From elementary school on, any time I picked my own clothes they were always oversized and typically from the boys department. At some point during college I realized my attraction to women and identified as a lesbian until recently. The label never quite felt right, but I couldn't put my finger on why that was. Denial was easier than working through it. I did not have many resources and wasn't comfortable discussing my dysphoria. As I entered adulthood, I began to present myself in a very androgynous way. This helped ease the dysphoria a bit, but only temporarily.

I think it was 5 or so, and knowing I wasn't a 'girl' in the way that the other girls in kindergarten were. I didn't know what the alternative was though, so I just went along with it. I think it probably wasn't until middle school that I was even introduced to the possibility of trans and non-binary identities, but I didn't openly identify as nb until sophomore year of college.

I first realized it when I was around 10 or 11, I definitely looked like a little boy in my basketball shorts with these braids. One of the guys working at a store called me a boy and I didn't correct him. It sounded right when he said it. It felt right.

It was around 4 or 5 I didn't really fit into my gender and being that I lived mainly with my nieces and aunt's I never truly had male leadership in my life. By the age of 13-14 I began crossdressing and displaying female tendencies. By age 16-18 I began seeking hormonal treatment.

I would say i started realizing i didn't relate to my birth in my early teens. I never wore the typical girl clothes or played with the usual girl toys.
