I hate my breasts and I don’t know what to do about it. I think a lot about cutting them off. I don’t like the way shirts look on me because of them. Also I don’t like being female and cringe when I hear people refer to me as she or by my first name. I wear baggy clothes and have short hair so strangers frequently assume I’m a boy until I tell them my name. Most people don’t understand my problem and make fun of me for dressing/ acting like a boy. This makes things difficult at work. Also I’m gay and worried that girls won’t find me attractive anymore if I decide to cut my breasts off. Please help.
