Am I transsexual, transvestite, or both ?
Ok, just recently I began looking into my Gender Transition, I found numerous options open to me and I was convinced for a while that I was fully Transsexual, and I am still convinced that I am at least partially Gender Dysphoric, I have had these feelings since I was a small child What I want to know is, is it possible to be both Transvestite and Transsexual at the same time? I don’t identify as male per se however I don’t want a sex change. I will admit that Transvestism has a certain sensual allure but not enough for me to consider myself fully Transvestite. So whats the deal am I Transsexual or Transvestite, or both?
It is difficult to answer if your transsexual, transvestite or both because you are the only one who have the answer to this kind of question. However, I can tell you that this isn’t all the transsexual people that wan’t a sex change. There are several transsexual people who are born in a male body who live as women, as they identify themselves to this gender. Sex change doesn’t have importance in your gender identity; if you know you are a women born in a male body, so you are. Sex change is another step that some people want to take and others not; and it is okay like that. It is a choice. I just want you to know that you are not alone in this situation.
Look at this site, this is a kind of glossary and it mentions nonsurgical transsexuals —) http://www.transproud.com/trans_terms.html
