I was just banned from /r/asktransgender for questioning my gender identity and sexual orientation. Why so much hate?

Gotcha. So people are traumatized based on past events. I totally get that. Story of my life.

Indeed, the very first thing I did was ask about the ban. I received no response.

I heard epilating your face is not a good idea because it can damage the skin. Have you heard that?

I did my chest once and I'm not sure I could do it again due to pain.

Legs have been ok, but the higher up you go, the more it hurts.


I wear dresses because I feel and look amazing in them, moreso than any other article of clothing. I don't think it's due to the stereotype, because I don't feel the same way about skirts and bras. I just love dresses.

What you're talking about regarding clothing is one area that is not confusing for me -- I can easily see how wearing any type of clothing does not change your gender identity.

I can see how some people might wear clothing that is stereotypically feminine to make themselves feel better and fit in socially, because those things are unique to each culture.


I just get confused when we say "I am a man" or "I am a woman" because I can't find anything inside or outside myself that I can point to to refer to those things. Maybe I am just unable to see myself. Maybe if I could see myself, I'd know what my gender was.
