From as far back as I remember I have always felt male within. I was made aware of my difference in gender identity when I first started Kindergarten at age 3 and 1/2 as I had to use the bathroom that was for girls and not the one that I felt was the right place for me.
From that moment on life became more complicated as my gender was at odds with societies expectations. Throughout the kindergarten years my freedom to be myself was increasingly challenged. I was expected to conform to the stereotype of what a girl was, yet i felt so deeply that i was a boy.
I did not know the language of gender dysphoria , or transsexual etc back then. To this day none of these words sit comfortably with me,
The words that do are those of a life journey that is simpler in mind set. Boy, Youth , Man.
