So I believe I may be bigender. So yeah, I don't mind being a guy at times, but I like being(acting like) a girl a lot more. So I was wondering how I could pass(not be harassed by looking like a guy) in public as a girl? Would I need some HRT or not?
If anyone know some helpful sites for bigender people i'd greatly appreciate it. I also want to grow my hair out, what's a good long hairstyle for a guy like myself. Added pics(one as a guy with no makeup/wig and other with those stuff) for better advice. thanks.
You will get bothered for presenting as a woman, but you are also pretty passable. I would say, do not take HRT, but as you age it will become more of an issue if you dress like a woman. It also depends on the area you live in. Up east is pretty tolerant, big cities generally live and let live for the most part.

We need allies, the gay community is too small to reasonably pass any legislation without allies. Allies with money are a good thing and cishet women control about 70% of all domestic spending meaning that companies and politicians will continue to cater to them. Cishet women are in a position to put their overwhelming privilege to work and really help out the gay community.
However, the consumer based nature of women is extremely detrimental to gay identity and gay rights. As it stands "gay" media is really just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5646419 I know the comic is about racism, but it also shows the way women think it is okay to talk over the group that they are "allied" with.
Also cishet men who ally with the gay movement tend to do it because they actually care, not because of what gays can do for them. Men are not in it for a sassy gay friend who will do their hair and pick out clothes. Men ally with gays because they like them as people, not as tools. Men also don't do it for appearance.

First I want to make clear that this isn't a "LOL TRANS IS A MENTAL ILLNESS" thread. I don't care how trans people live their lives and I just want people to be happy. This is really just an interesting intellectual exercise.
The root cause of most mental disorders today is seen as a combination of genetic and environmental factors - i.e. you may have a family predisposition to experiencing bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, but that doesn't mean you're guaranteed to developed those disorders. Traumatic life events like physical and sexual abuse, homelessness, drug use, etc. can activate the latent potential for the disease or worsen it. The same is true vice versa - becoming homeless doesn't mean you're guaranteed to develop schizophrenia.
Is it possible that the same is true of gender dysphoria? I've gotten to know quite a lot of trans people, and they all seem to have the same sort of history that would make them susceptible to mental illness – severe bullying at school, drug addiction, homelessness, abusive parents, NEET shut-in lifestyle, social isolation, and at a far greater than the general populace. I know what your response is likely to be - that trans people face such difficulty and abuse just living their day to day lives that of course they're going to have had traumatic events and lifestyles in their past. Or that their latent gender dysphoria caused their mental and social problems before they realised they were trans.
Of course this can't be ruled out entirely, but it doesn't seem to fit what I hear from actual trans people. Usually the traumatic events happened long before they first experienced gender dysphoria, sometimes even before puberty. And feeling uncomfortable when you look in the mirror or are misgendered doesn't get you molested.
So basically my hypothesis is that a portion of the population experiences or has the potential to experience gender dysphoria, it's just that when they're well adjusted and have led a trauma and mental illness free life it doesn’t develop into full blown gender dysphoria. Thoughts?
