Anonymous asked: “Im 22, it just hit me not to long ago that I'm not straight. The problem is I can't stop thinking about my sexuality and my desire for femininity. I like to cross dress and have convinced myself I want to be a girl. I tried to repress the urges but the more I do the stronger they get. I'm terrified because who I feel like I am on the inside is completely opposite of who I show myself to be, it would be a huge change I don't know if I can handle. I'm confused and don't know where to start.”
First of all, you should stop repressing yourself. It is hard for sure, especially in certain environments, but you are the leading role of this life and no one can tell you in which “look” or “form” or anything you have to live in.
It must be noted that being feminine has nothing to do with your sexuality, so it is different being not straight and being feminine.
As some hints, ask yourself if it is just the look you have outside or there is more, in case it is more than just looks. All cases are okay, and I will suggest you to consult a local LGBTQ* organization as I believe it will be a great help for you. Also try to discuss this with your best friend or a person you trust the most, who sees you as a person first rather than anything, as I also feel like you need some support from people you love as well.
I hope this helps and best wishes.
