Re: Would you rather have been born cis or accepted as trans?

I guess my position is pretty privileged. I'm accepted by everyone I'm out to, like parents and friends and I'm now stealth, so most of my new friends don't even know I'm trans. (I moved to a new city after starting my transition so the chances of being outed are small.) Society as a whole? I mean this country still has a long way to go but it's definitely not the worst place to be to transition. HRT and surgeries are most likely going to be free. I only pay 10 euros (around 12 dollars) every three months for my T shots.

Yet I still would prefer to simply have been born cis. I see being trans more as a medical condition, not something that is necessarily part of my identity. Sure, it shaped me into the person I am today, but would have preferred to not make some of the experiences I've made.
