Default Do you enjoy your gender?

Do you enjoy your gender and feel comfortable about it, or does your personality not suit it? What's your likes and dislikes of the gender you identify as?

I mean yeah it's okay. I'm definitely on the more tomboyish side of the spectrum though since I tend to shy away from skirts and dressing outwardly feminine a lot. For a while I felt a lot of gender dysphoria because I felt like I didn't fit in the gender binary and was questioning my gender but now I feel more comfortable being cis female. I just prefer to be more gender neutral and I tend to prefer more masculine things like the sciences and video games. But I guess that's fine since I know other people that are like me and can even be a lot more masculine.

People used to tell me I'm a "girl" (ok) because I didn't conform to some of their expectations. It made me incredibly distressed back then, now I'm still more feminine than the average guy but I couldn't care less tbh, I'm happy with it.

yes, certainly. i toyed with the idea of being genderfluid in my younger years but that's not a concept i believe in anymore.
i think i act more like a man than a woman which led to mass speculation that i'm a lesbian. i've been told that i have a sort of boyish charm about me. i don't feel the need to put emphasis on identity. i have some feminine traits and some masculine traits but that doesn't mean i'm something other than a woman.

I've always been told I was a tomboy, asked if I was a dyke, or if I wanted to be a boy when I was younger... it really fucked up my self esteem and self image. Most of the time i can't see anything else other than some thing that tries to look like a girl but fails. It's not that I've ever disliked being a girl... it's just always been an influence thing. I grew up with an older brother, all male friends, and a dad I took after a lot, and so it made sense I grew up liking "boy things". I'm comfortable being female. I don't dislike it (I hate the "perks" that come with it though, thanks ovaries) and I don't believe I'll ever change my gender identification in the future. What I do not like, though, is society's norms and standards for each gender... the stereotypes and the ridicule that young girls and boys and other identities have to deal with. It really fucked me up as a kid and I hate to think about it always happening.

Tbh I went through a brief period where I was uncertain of whether I still identified as cisgender but I don't question it anymore. My outward appearance reflects my identity - I prefer having long hair, like wearing skirts etc. which are associated with femininity. Now that I think about it, I used to have a friend who would ask if I was a "tomboy" or "girly girl", and I thought it was a stupid question and always responded neither. Just goes to show how much I hate labels.

I'm pretty ok with who I am. For the most part I always was. Wasn't always as open an honest with my dad about it. Cause I knew his stance.

But I think I always like who I was, gender wise. I like being a boy, like "boy stuff". Nobody ever questioned my sexuality at all. Most are pretty surprised when they find out. I just never really let it bother me. And I just was myself. Just JT lol!!

It's not something I have given a lot of thought tbh! I am reallyyy camp and sometimes I feel like I don't suit my body like a while ago I was friends with these guys that I played video games with over skype for a few months and when we all met up irl they was like bloodyhell wasn't expecting that because I am quite big but like I dunno tbh XD I act a lot like a girl in some ways but I can be kinda manly occasionally? XD I have never bothered with labels for my gender or sexuality so don't care xD but no my personality certainly does not match my personality and my goshh that was a ramble :')


I'm a prettyyy awkward weeb that likes alcohol and punk rock :')

When I was younger a lot of esp. white people for some reason thought I was a girl. I honestly don't know why. It was sort of annoying but no big deal either. But it greatly upset my Dad, he probably thought it was his fault somehow and he somehow had messed up as a parent.
I never felt unhappy with my gender or wanted to be something else. I don't feel like I act manly but I don't feel like I act girly either.
I'm interested in things more associated with males like hunting and football but I would also do "girl's stuff" like doing my female friends hair, reading and discussing her celebrity gossip with her and go shopping with her.
We played with dolls together as kids but also went fishing together and played baseball.

She does guy's stuff I do girl's stuff and we never questioned ourselves in any way.

So I am not sure if I would say I enjoy my gender but I am who I am and content either it.

We like being as a guy, so we have no reason to feel awkward-other than the girls-and identify as such in daily life. The only reason why we don't have it as the male one is since, we are not all male-or even dominantly more 50/50- in the system, so we use that so tat anyone who post's in the system dosen't get in any awkward situations-such as one of the girls talking and people being confused-.

Hello we are a system-more than one person inhabiting a body-, and glad to be able to be a part of here,if you have anything you wish to talk about we are willing to talk. We can also give you more info on systems if requested.

Tbh it's not something that I've thought about much. One thing that has crossed my mind quite a lot is how I really don't like male/female stereotypes and what you're "expected" to enjoy depending on your gender. Despite that I am happy with who I am though.

This might be a surprise for some considering my conservative talk and obsession with hunting and guns and cars, but when I was younger, I always thought I was gay and I liked girl things. I would play with nail polish and design dresses and watch Project Runway. I even told my parents once that I wanted to be a girl. That was before puberty. Now I am comfortably bisexual and very happy to be a man and not a woman. I could not imagine how difficult it is to be a woman and there are just so many perks of being a man.
