Non-binary/Gender Queer people with chest and body dysphoria, often have to lie and say they are trans men to get the same treatment as FTM's, if they are seeking any kind of surgery. It is a common misconception, mostly by health services, that Body and Gender Dysphoria is a condition exclusive to #FTM or #MTF.
This is because a large number of people believe the label Non-binary/Gender Queer is from people who like to dress 'androgynously' (aka not exclusively in 'male' or 'female' clothing). This is NOT TRUE. being Gender Queer is also to do with not feeling like you are your GENDER ASSIGNED AT BIRTH. Androgynous and Gender Queer are completely different things.
There is minimal information out there and such little recognition of genders beyond the binary, so much so people are living in pain and confusion because they don't even have access to the information about their own gender.
Services for trans people need to start looking #BEYONDTHEBINARY - gender is not black and white and i can speak for thousands of gender queer people when I say i feel cursed by my genetics, i hate myself, i hope with all my heart i don't have to live my whole life hiding in baggy jumpers, suffering crippling anxiety from chest dysphoria and injuring my back and ribs with binders. One day WE WILL ALL be free ✨✨ Everyone, specifically Cisnormative people, please EDUCATE yourself, trans people have enough shit to deal with without facing uneducated people everyday.
