Not very girly - November 28th 2010, 12:06 AM

Hi-hi everyone,

It's Zoe. For those who don't know me I am a transsexual, and while I am slowly sinking into the transition, I feel like I'm getting no where, does anyone have any suggestions? I already do mascara, wear girl-style fashion (as don't have that many cloths, and I wear accessories, I've changed how I sit and stand and how I walk but I just feel like there's stuff I'm missing... When I say stuff missing, I mean while I identify as a girl and not really even publicly is there anything else anyone can think of to make me seem more girly?

Hey there. I can't really identify with transsexuality, but even as a (sorry, I don't know the proper term) "genetic" female, I struggle with feeling/being girly. I like this article: http://www.wikihow.com/Be-a-Girly-Girl ... it helps me with more than just fashion. I hope this helps.


when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

To be honest; why would you want to act like somebody you're not? I mean, if you feel like you're a girl, by all means express that in any way you want, but changing the way you act, your mannerisms etc seems a bit forced to me, wouldn't you want to just... act naturally and be yourself? Who says you need to conform to either stereotype?

Yeah I know, I just want to be seen differently and I just want to help that but if I move at my own pace and be who I am I'll reach it or become who I trully am. I need to find my own path. Thanks.

Well, try not to let others' opinions of you influence how you see yourself; you are a girl, your body may not reflect that, and any stereotypes you'd attempt to live up to would just be idealistic and purely artificial, just try be you, and be comfortable in that (: ∂x
