My story is much the same. Only I’m born female. But from a small child I knew i was different I was a tomboy then and still am, I played lot of sports fought with boys for the right to play often told your a girl get lost. My nic back then was sport a name my grandfather called me. And I like it. I was never a bully but I got into lot of fights protecting the ones who need protecting from bullies. Witch earned me the name scrapper this i didn’t like to much, because it made me feel like kids saw me as a bully. Funny thing is years later, I found so many people form old school days, who have made comments to me on face book, Hey I remember you man you were awesome never took sh”t form anyone all ways looking out for the little ones. I know all that doesn’t make me trans male, Just saying, I knew back than I was more male then female. So all you wonderful people there is hope and love for everyone HUGS to all. OH got distracted. I am dealing with dysphoria, its been a battle in me for years with no fault of my own I’ve had to struggle with it not knowing just what it was till recently. I am now getting help.
