…y, how come their salaries drop after transition while trans men see their incomes rise on average? If there’s no gendered dynamic at play here, you’d think trans femmes and trans mascs would be punished equally for their gender nonconformity. And yet we aren’t, and it’s because trans women are women and are treated as such by society at large while those on the trans masculine side tend to end up with better life outcomes overall.
…an therapy. My mind expected a female body, but was stuck with one (that used to be) more masculine. I never felt that I was in the wrong body. It seems to be a common misconception that all transgender people feel “born in the wrong body.” While I don’t want to discredit those who do feel that way, I want cisgender people to understand that most of us love our bodies. We’re just trying to feel as comfortable as possible in them.
