Sorry it has taken so long to get a reply.

So my understanding of it is when you are conflicted with your physical and assigned gender with what you identify with. Sometimes it means that you are uncomfortable in your own body or the expected role you are supposed to follow with the gender you are born with. This is where I got the information, so maybe take a look at it yourself.

I hope this has helped you.
Your Friend,
Frankie<3


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

It seems that it's when you don't feel happy being of that gender and which you have belonged to since you were born

[SIZE="a"]Thank you, that link helped. I don't think I have gender dysphoria, but rather am gender non-conforming.

This can be closed now.[/size]
