Ok, ok. So when it comes to the LGBT+ community and me, I was never confused about who I was. I knew right from the start that I was bis**ual. I never really felt like "female" or "male" was the right term for me but I don't know how I feel about being non-binary either. I always said I don't care what my pronoun are and when I address myself I always use female terms. I don't feel female and I think I'm starting to lean towards he/him or they/them pronouns. I don't get upset or anything when people address me as female it just feels really odd and out of place, ya know? I am already done growing (it has been 6 years since my period started). I get that estrogen levels drop near your period but this feeling is constantly there. My friends are very accepting of me (I wish my parents were) and one of my friends already knows about this feeling. When I started puberty, I grew a mustache but I was having these feeling even before then. My mom brought me to a skin&hair doctor and it turns out that I have oddly high levels of testosterone for a female and I was almost born a hermaphrodite. I was wondering if that was it. I also wonder if my brothers have the same feelings because they have oddly high levels of estrogen which lead them to have gynecomastia.

I completely understand your situation, although I am transgender and very comfortable with my identity. I'm kind of the same way as your brothers, but I have never experienced gynecomastia. I have oddly high estrogen levels, which caused me to hit puberty when I was 16, almost 17. But lately, I was put on hormone blockers to start transitioning (just to make me not go through puberty all the way) and I will be starting taking estrogen to start fully transitioning. Take it from me, dear. At first, if you feel "weird" being addressed as male or they/them pronouns, that is completely normal. It happened with me. It felt weird, but oddly comfortable, and now I'm very confident in my gender identity. I believe in you <3 Figuring out your gender identity takes time. You got this, dear.
