by T i’m assuming you mean trans. i don’t often talk about my experience of being transsexual, but i don’t hide that aspect of myself, either. i don’t want to seem put off, though; i really appreciate this message, so thank you.
that said, i suppose i could speak a bit to my own experience of being transsexual: i’m not trying to be an inspiration or an example, and i truthfully don’t believe i’m at the end of my tunnel yet (or that i ever will be? i don’t know.), but i don’t mind being someone’s example or inspiration, especially if they’re dealing with their own gender/sex dysphoria. when i first began my transition, i definitely looked to others in a similar position for information, an idea of what i could experience, of what physical transition can look like, and they were big comforts to me. i think the most amazing thing that has come from transitioning, for me, is self-congruity. i feel like a singular person, and i feel whole. my brain recognizes my body, and in turn, society recognizes my body in a way that is congruous with my brain. this has freed me up to finally be myself—a self removed (but not separate) from gender and sex— but who i am in addition to all that, which is (i think?) what most people strive for, trans or cis. i feel very lucky to be who and where i am today.
i guess that was a bit more than you bargained for in writing this message, haha. well, i hope you are well and again, thank you for writing this; it’s been a long time since i thought critically about my transsexuality.
