Body Dysmorphia vs Gender Dysphoria
How can anybody tell the difference?
You’re living in a body
With genitals, and an
Outward physical appearance.
Everyone seems to hate puberty, it’s kind of a
I knew that I was gender dysphoric
Because I realized I’d love to be a fat man
And hated being a fat woman.
Heard fat both times.
I only mention it, to make a clear distinction–
I always knew that I wasn’t talking about
My body’s appearance. I was transitioning
From being she to him.
I was chasing something new, something
I hadn’t been.
I reject the idea that I was always a man–
I was born a woman and had to transition, had to
Find this guy somewhere within her. I don’t think that’s the same thing
As being born male.
You don’t have to be fat, to think you are.
You don’t have to be a man, to think you are one.
You don’t have to be anything, wouldn’t maybe
It be better, if we just
Let everyone live?
It’s really hard to tell the difference
Between hating your body’s sex, and
Hating your body’s characteristics.
