If I may ask Cala (and please accept my apology if this is inappropriate), you are dysphoric about…
Allison Washington

No offence to anyone was meant by saying normal cis woman. It was more of a commentary on myself and not feeling normal, rather than a differentiator between cis and trans.

I’m an AFAB, but often feel disgusted by gender and genitalia in general, so maybe that should make me agender rather than gender dysphoric… In general I’m not very good with labels so forgive me for any mistakes I might make.

When it comes to feelings of dysphoria, I get them when I’m reminded that I have genitals. My labia rubbing together, my arm rubbing against my breasts, feeling a tampon inside me… If I’m not careful and focus on these little reminders, I start feeling disgusted by my body.

Thank you for asking. Your stories are so interesting and you have so much to tell, that you being curious about this stranger on the internet feels good. I hope I clarified anything you were uncertain of.
