Absolutely nothing you say will change what’s in your pants or your DNA. Whatever you need to say to get you through the day keep it up, but one day the truth will come crashing down and it will hurt bad. You really are a pretty girl￼￼￼
You’re confusing biological sex with gender.
Yes, my biological sex is female, and although this does cause me a fair amount of distress, I accept it.
But I am not a girl. Gender and sex are two different things. (For a more in depth explanation, check out these: Stanford, Healthline, American Medical Association Journal of Ethics, and WHO. There are tons of other good reputable sources you can look for too).
The only truth that ever came crashing down upon me was the one in which I realized that I’m not a girl. I tried so hard for so long to be a girl. I’m a high school student living in a homophobic/transphobic Islamic household, so being nonbinary is really, really difficult for me. Believe me, I’d much prefer to be a cisgender (comfortable with assigned gender) girl. I tried to be a cisgender girl, even though it always felt wrong. I tried to be a cisgender girl, even though it made me miserable. In the end, being who I am, despite all the transphobia out there, made me far more happy than pretending to be someone I was not.
This isn’t a delusion. It’s just me.
Feel free to ask if you are still confused or need further clarification.

one thing I've never understood about the gender dysphoria argument is.. what if you have transient dysphoria? not like, you have dysphoria and then you transition and it goes away, but what if you experience extreme amounts of dysphoria sometimes, and then absolutely none the next second. every dysphoric trans person has good dysphoria days, but if your dysphoria just completely goes away and comes back and goes away etc etc... what does the rich white trans man counsel rule? anyways my point is is that we have created a new binary, the cis/trans binary, and people of nonwhite genders (ex: two spirit, muxe), genderfluid/flux, neurogender and intersex people often do not fit into it (though the intersex discussion is not mine to speak on, there are other posts abt that)
