What am I?
I’m 23, female I have a girlfriend we have been together for 3 years that makes a lesbian right? but, i do not feel comfortable saying that i am a lesbian, i don’t like when people points and says you’re a lesbian because i don’t really feel like a lesbian. It feels weird to say “i am a female” and i know for sure i don’t want to be a man, people usually mistakes me for a boy but i have a big breast that makes me look like a woman, i would like to get chest surgery because I’ve always wanted to get rid of my boobs i don’t like them at all. I love my vagina. I love, love women but I often have sexual dreams about men but i don’t think i can be with one. I like the idea of looking like girlyboy or a boyishgirl but i don’t know why I’ve always think that way i feel really confused i don’t fit in,i don’t like the idea of being a lesbian just because i was born a female and like females or being a FTM just because i want to get rid of my boobs and wanna look boyish, Please help meee!!
