I’ve asked a few times and I just think he over thinks it. I’m still not really sure where he draws the line between it being a sexual thing and it being what he feels like on the inside. I’ve tried talking to him about it but it really seems like he’s not really sure where the line is. I know that it isn’t all sexual and he wants to come out and dress up. (I use “he” because he doesn’t identify as female he identifies as male) that’s why I’m here trying to find an answer to my question because I want to help him with understanding himself in this sense.
Hi Sarah. With regards to try to help him figure it out, its so great you are helping, however it might take time. I am 33 and its still sexual yet I want to go out in world as a woman, but I know I am not a transwoman. maybe I am gender fluid. My point is I have been trying to work it out for 20 years, and put a lot of thought into it for the last 12 months in particular, it takes time. Experimenting with your help will certainly help, I wish I had that support!
