Sharing my thoughts for today, and something that might surprise you!
Lots of guys might have shame being a shorter stature. According to statistics, a man is “short”, if they come in under 5’7″ in the USA. I am 5’5″! I have absolutely no shame or body dysphoria. I know I am fortunate that way!
So many people with non-conforming bodies and atypical genitals are not so fortunate. Be it if we are born intersex with natural bodily variations, or call ourselves transgender, this world can be a cruel cold place for those of us who have bodies that do not conform to “typical”. This sometimes creates body dysphoria and gender dysphoria. If you are wondering what intersex is, please go to this link: United Nations’ Intersex Fact Sheet.
Being raised the wrong gender, as female, all my life, I have had this obsession with shorter men. More than likely because I was taught at three and four that I was not allowed to be a boy. It would not be until the last two years of my life that I figured out that I had been lied to!
Starting as a young teen, I even memorized the names of famous, short-statured, male actors and rock stars even! As an unusual teenager posters of some of these shorter men were tacked onto my pink bedroom walls. Well, obviously you could see why I had this short man obsession! Now that I appear a little dude, and legally so! I am absolutely celebrating my life more!
My entire existence has improved! I have a life now! I sadly lived the majority of my life with major depression and being tormented by psychiatry and doctors. My genuine existence had been completely erased. Half my life is over now, however, I now have HOPE, and can live my genuine and authentic self now!
I hope my story, along with many other stories, is a lesson learned to all the doctors, psychiatrists, and parents out there. You can read more about me here.
We do not need to be fixed! Just let us be, please. Fix Society Please instead!
