I can relate a lot. Going out alone presenting feminine is still a little scary for me, but I don’t see that changing much unless I exclusively hang out in the small part of town where it’s not an issue.
I have noticed that wearing boy clothes in public is a safe place for me if I’m overly stressed or anxious. I don’t like presenting male for only that reason though- I’ve done that for 40 years.
And yeah, haven’t been into sports for 10 years or so (used to love MMA), but I love loud, aggressive heavy metal music, playing and listening- video games, and violent movies of all genres.
Having said that, I feel like I have not allowed myself to try to like anything seen as feminine. I’ve been reading more books by female writers in female perspectives. And, maybe I do like romantic movies, I just need to try to watch a whole one. Definitely not muscials, though.
67? That is so cool. Definitely my hero.
