It has been about 2 years since I've posted anything on here. A lot has changed for me. I'm still a detransitioned woman, but even that is fading and becoming more of a memory as time goes on. Each day that memory of being "detransitioned" or a "detransitioner" fades, and each day me being the actual female I was born as gets stronger and stronger. Honestly, I don't want to be known as a "detransitioner" for the rest of my life. I would like this to become a part of my history. Just like you wouldn't call me a "former cutter" anymore. You would say that I have mental health issues with a history of cutting over 5 years ago. I do not want this detransitioner business to be a defining characteristic of who I am as a person. I let my identity as a man go on for too long, been there, done that, and it just doesn't consume me the way it used to do.
I've moved on from all of this. I'm just a regular woman. I have facial hair, chest hair, whatever, but I am just like any other woman. I'm not "cis" and I'm not "trans" and I'm not "genderqueer." The only two labels I have are "woman" and "lesbian." That's it. Sorry I don't fit into the boxes of trans-cis-queer identity politics. That's just not who I am. I exist outside of the millions of your gender boxes. That's reality. For years I genuinely thought I was transsexual; I thought that I was a man. I fit the criteria (and still fit some of it), but back then I strictly fit all of the criteria. I followed the trans narrative and did everything legitimately - I had the symptoms. Yet, here we are! Maybe sociologists and psychologists and doctors in general can do studies about people like me, as long as they don't try to convince me toward transition again. I know that butch lesbians are seen as an eyesore in society, but you cannot change me. Kicking and screaming you will not change me. Not for a million bucks. I'm much too happy these days to go through any of that ever again. No concerns here of re-transitioning!
In light of all of this, I wanted to share with you all a piece I had written to a website, which unfortunately wouldn't publish it, due to the fact they do not consider Gender Dysphoria a mental health issue (but it is). I hope this piece will show you all where I am at now in my life.
