    I've mentioned a few times that I come from a christian family and they are having trouble fully accepting me. In fact, from a christian POV or what my family tells me as much as I feel like I want to go FtM and get the surgery, that'd be the final nail in the coffin and would "send me to hell". In other words, if I "give in" and have sex with girls once in awhile I may be forgiven, but if I go through with the lifestyle and get the sex change, there's no way I'll be going to heaven.. So to be 100% honest I'm a bit scared to go through with this at times to say the least. Are there any christian members out there with advice? (Anyone can comment though of course). I probably should've asked this sooner, but I was nervous to be honest. I don't want to offend anyone or be seen as a coward for not living the lifestyle, but I also don't want my family to hate me. I don't believe my mom will hate or disown me, but my dad might... That's why I'm worried.

    I would appreciate some opinions on hairstyles.. I haven't come out fully as trans and as much as I'd love to just shave my head or have a realllly short hairstyle... I'm afraid of my father making comments like "You look butch" or "where's your bike" ...He just sees these as jokes and even has a gay friend, but I don't think he can handle seeing that his daughter feels like a son to him... Anyway, my question is, is a short bob hairstyle considered gender neutral? It seems like the best I can get away with for now and I don't really mind looking gender neutral even though I'd rather look like a male.

    It's been awhile since I've last visited this site. How's everyone doing? I finally got the balls to get my hair cut lol. This was a big deal for me because I come from a religious family and my father is always looking at girls with short hair saying remarks like "Dyke on a bike" and "Carpet Muncher" so I thought if I got my hair cut he'd get mad and say that to me. I was worried over nothing though because my family actually likes my hair. My dad did seem shocked, but didn't turn out too bad. It feels so much better having hair like this and I feel one step closer to being myself. :)

    Hello, I'm Kris and this will be my first blog post. I just joined this site recently and I've been really hesitent to joining the community because I come from a religious family... I'm currently trying to figure out if I am transgender, transsexual, or if I'm just going through gender identity... I shouldn't say just because even if it is that I absolutely can't stand it! Every time I'm called a she/her, pretty/beautiful I get upset... I hate that feeling because I know it's supposed to be a compliment, but I take it as an insult. I've been fighting this since I was a kid, but it didn't become that apparent until 8th grade. Anyway, I'd love to make friends on here and (off topic a bit) if anyone here has a wattpad account, let me know. :) I love to write and I one day hope my stories can be animated.

Me vs. Gender Stereotypes

Just feeling the need to rant after realizing it's already August. (Time flies after high school). I told myself this would be the Summer I learn or at least start to learn to drive. Yes, I'm 25 and still have this horrible fear of driving. I am a nervous/paranoid person and for those who don't know, I have Asperger's Syndrome. The reason for the title of this blog is because I'm not driving, I constantly battle this gender male stereotype in my head... Telling me things like "What kind of man doesn't drive a car?" "Men love cars so you have to drive!" "Men drive better than women so if you drive badly, YOU are a woman." I absolutely despise this voice in my head and I've brought it up a coulple times how I've been brought up and had to battle sexist beliefs. I'm so nervous to actually get behind the wheel... I keep telling myself (despite that stupid voice) that just because I'm not a driver (yet) doesn't make me less of a man. Still, I hate having this phobia and really hope to overcome it this month.

PS: I know men don't drive better than women, but it's something my father ALWAYS said to me growing up and now it's just something that automatically pops up in my head when I try to drive. It really sucks.

    Kris McKinley I wouldn't know anything about Auto Insurers, but yes, that would probably be a good point to bring up to my dad. (If indeed he was serious about what he says).
