I feel like I should have been AMAB and I have had similar thoughts before in my life (including childhood) I recall, but I don't have any memories of actively wishing I was a boy or trying to present as the other gender either. I kinda thought "welp I guess I can't do anything about that...sucks bu...show more
you don't owe anyone masculinity. identify however you want and i do get that it can be hard to have to cut people off etc. but i truly think that it's worth it for the happiness that it brings. and if those people needed to be cut off, were they really a positive part of your life?

Hi! This is the OP. Thank you for your advice, though I'm not entirely sure you understood what I meant about the gender stereotypes thing since what I meant was I've always been neither really feminine nor masculine (I am ascertainly not very masculine) but I often feel like I should've been a man. Based on your response I was concerned you didn't realise, since you mentioned I could be a not-girly woman, which I have considered for a long time, but my question lies more on the side of "could I be valid if I'm a not-manly trans man". However, you might have known and I've just repeated myself, in which case I apologise. Thanks!

Just because you don’t conform to gender norms doesn’t mean your trans. You can not be a typical “girly girl” and still be a woman or non-binary. If you’re asking yourself whether or not you’re trans, you’re probably not trans.
