  1. I was talking to my husband about dysphoria, and he said all men experience it. He says when a boy grows into a man, suddenly gets tall and starts hitting doors, or finds that his punch actually goes through the wall, or feels the hair on his face for the first time, it is odd and he wonders about the skin he’s in.

    I realize that the same goes for women, not only in puberty, but also during pregnancy.

    In these cases, there are stories and support systems to help people through this discomfort. People there to say that it is perfectly normal and that everyone feels this way from time to time.

    Where is that support system for trans people? Who is there to say, you don’t feel right, and that’s okay. Here is what we can do about it?
    Thoughts?
