Its not always easy.... Not even close

So I don't know if anyone else here is still in high school but it is such a hard place to be when you are transgender. It's hard and very few people are there to support, if any. My experience in high school hasn't been easy at all. I feel like I'm alone. My GSA is helpful, but even there I don't really feel right. Everyone there identifies as Gay,Lesbian,Pansexual, or Bisexual. There is one other who identifies as trans, but i believe this is just to either get attention, or perhaps the individual is unsure about who they are. They are not completely right in the head, and I don't mean that I don't believe them, but the fact that they wear just tank tops to school, revealing their chest, and all female clothes.... it makes me wonder. In a way, it angers me. But besides that, I don't feel like there is really anyone i can talk to about this, I have my girlfriend, who is completely supportive, but it's not the same as actually having another trans person to talk to. I have recently started coming out to more people, one person being the co-adviser of the school's GSA, he was of course really supportive but also had a lot of questions, which i was very happy to answer! :)

I will probably Make another post about more complications with being trans* in high school; I don't want this getting too long. Thank you for reading! :lol:

Hello Forest...and Welcome.

It's been a long time since I was a teen...but I remember how I felt. Especially when puberty hit. But no one knew about it. It was my secret that I was sure I could never tell anyone. Things are slowly improving though, and people are coming out at younger ages than people did just 20 or 30 years ago.

If you haven't run across it already, you might wanna check out the pinned post "Being a Teen..." I guess I better check it out too - it's been quite a while since I wrote that. I need to check the links in that post...make sure everything is up-to-date.
