I've been having some gender-related wonderings recently. By now, most people in society seem to at least be aware that it's possible for a person to have a gender identification that doesn't match their biological sex. It's possible for a biological man to be a woman, and for a biological woman to be a man.
My question is: is it possible to be partway between the two? Somewhere between cis- and transgendered?
This was mostly brought up by a shopping trip I was on last night. I went out and bought some new women's underwear and a dress. While I was shopping, I suddenly had this overwhelming feeling of being female. Like I was identifying with the other gender. I get these flashes sometimes. But they're not lasting or permanent. They come and go.
Basically, I'm happy with my male gender and don't want to transition. But sometimes I wish to be a woman. I want to express myself that way, be seen as female, and identify myself that way. Not even as an LG, but an adult woman. At the same time, not permanently. I like being male. But sometimes, the other side seems to appear...
So basically, is there a term for this? Switching between cis- and fully transgender, or being halfway between the two? Or is it something else altogether?
(I'd also like to take some time to express my respect and appreciation for all the transgender people and activists who've made it safe for a guy to go shopping for girls' clothes and not face reprisal. People like you have made the world a better place for all of us! Keep spreading the message of love )
