"When did you decide to be female/male?" #questionscisfolksneverhear
Such a simple concept. I have no idea why it confuses so many cis people.
The times I have tried to explain being transgender from my perspective, it’s met with confused stares and questions like “Why would your parents decide to raise you as a boy if you had a vagina?”
And I’d respond “No, I didn’t have a vagina. I had a penis.”
"Oh, so you were a boy! Why didn’t you just say so?"
"Because I wasn’t!"
