Am I okay?

Ever since I was young I was different (which is fair, everyone is different). I would play with monster trucks and watch superhero movies while in my heels and dresses. Everything was fine. I was happy. But as I got older my parents would tell me "you can't play with that," or "you can't wear that," and I never really got it. Getting older I noticed all of these things they were condemning were activities and behaviors of the opposite s**. Ever since kindergarten I've been living as what I'm supposed to be. In more recent years though, I have been able to slowly slip in some more masculine clothing. I don't feel like I'm a guy but I'm definitely not a girl. What am I?

After the first time my mom couldn't keep me out of girls stuff and eventually bought me my own. It was "our secret" and we kept it from dad till I was almost 13.

  • I am agender myself, which is having no gender. You sound as though you could be anything under the Nonbinary umbrella. don't let anyone tell you who you are, though, it took me a while to figure things out, decide for yourself. By the way, you are definitely okay and 100% valid. Good luck

  • I get that needing a label can feel more secure, so I would encourage you to search it, sounds to me like you non-binary maybe, not swaying in either gender direction. That's great. Just be unapologetically yourself.

  • You are someone that needs to speak with someone else. I would start with a therapist. Tell them your feelings and go from there. Whatever you do don't let family or society tell you who you are. Good luck
