Gender identity issues are common for many people, and there is a lot of prejudice against those who are not cisgendered, even in places where you wouldn't expect it. Growing up or just living as someone who is not cisgendered is difficult.Transgender is the state of one's gender identity (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex."
This thread is for anyone seeking help on gender identity-related issues. As such, anyone who makes rude or criticising remarks is not welcome in this thread.
You may also have noticed that this is a separate thread from the usual LGBTQ acronym -- we thought gender identity issues were different enough to warrant their own thread. Issues relating to sexual orientation can be discussed in this thread.
