Queer as fuck. I don't feel transgender any more. I used to be a woman and at one point identified as one, and am very proud of that. To be told by some politico trans people that saying that undermines my identity as a trans man just makes me feel invisible all over again. I don't identify with people who want to fit into binary gender norms for the sake of "normalcy." I can be normal and still be a man who used to be a woman.
