I feel as though it is customary to post progress pictures or comparison pictures since I have started testosterone and honestly I have tried to keep up with it.
But my feelings come down to this:
I was never a girl and I think back to times that indicate quite strongly that I knew that from a very young age. I was never a girl so posting "before and after" type pictures isn't that fun to me. I feel as though I am showing you these pictures as a way of saying "I was a girl." I was not a girl, I was always me and I am a better me now.
I've even had people in tell me things like "I never would have known you were a girl had I not seen that comparison."
That is not a compliment, it will never be a compliment.
I don't think I will post many comparison photos in the future and that is entirely my choice.
I was never a girl, I just didn't consciously realize it until now.
