Coming Out as Femme

This blog post has some really interesting points to make about identifying as femme after an FTM transition. (click on image to be redirected to post)

“What does femme mean to you? To me, it means being brave and strong, and embracing the way I was socialized, and embracing the bits and pieces of me that don’t always fall in line with what it means to be a man. It means acknowledging that there is a gender spectrum, and that it is vast, and that no matter where I fit on it, my expression is valid and beautiful.  It means that I’m questioning the assumption that just because I transitioned and identify as male, that it means I have to be as masculine as I can be.  It means I am confident in my sensitivity.”
