The first person I ever asked about my gender identity was a girl, but I never had any idea what to expect.
When I told my mom that I’m transgender, I was asked to explain why I was attracted to men, or that I was a man, or why I felt like I was trapped in a gender binary.
At my first gay pride event, a few years ago, a woman from my high school told me that she was attracted, in part, to men.
I wasn’t sure what to say to that, and she told me I had to be a girl.
That was the beginning of the process that led me to identify as bisexual.
But the word bisexual has become more common over the years.
Now, bisexual is not just a preference.
It’s a label we use to describe our identities and feelings.
In 2013, the American Psychological Association released a survey that found that bisexual people are five times more likely to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The word bisexual is so ubiquitous that I started using it to describe myself, too.
I’m bisexual because I feel like it.
I can identify as a lesbian, but there are times when I am attracted to the opposite sex.
When my friend said I was “really attracted to her,” I knew that was the word to describe my experience.
But even though I am gay, I identify as bi because I think bisexuality is a label.
I have been living with the label since I was 17 years old.
Bisexual identity is often seen as a choice, not a condition.
In fact, in the last decade, bisexual people have become more and more visible.
For instance, bisexual activist Lila Rose said bisexuality can help us be less homophobic.
“Bisexuality is more a way of being than a label, and as a label it’s often viewed as a way to avoid feeling,” Rose said.
When bisexuals are identified as gay, lesbian or transgender, it can cause a lot of discomfort.
Biphobia, the fear of being gay or lesbian, can be especially difficult to navigate, said Jennifer Kapp, a clinical psychologist and bisexual activist.
For many people, being bisexual can feel like a choice to avoid feelings, or a rejection of gender roles.
This can be particularly problematic for bisexuals, who may be confused about their gender identity.
Bipolar disorder and gender dysphoria Bipolar and gender-disordered people are more likely than other people to experience anxiety, depression, and anxiety disorders, Kapp said.
The symptoms of bipolar disorder are similar to those of anxiety disorders and can be quite debilitating, especially for bisexual people.
The mental health challenges are so pervasive for bisexual individuals, Kapps said, that they often struggle to make the decision to transition from being gay to being straight.
This makes it difficult for bisexual trans women to transition, and even for some trans women who transition, it’s difficult to make it out of their closet.
In my experience, bisexual women are the most impacted by these mental health issues.
“Transgender people are just the most at-risk because they’re more likely not to identify with gender or sexuality, so it’s harder for us to have access to care for them,” Kapp added.
“We’re so far behind that other group, and it’s not even really acknowledged.”
I was never able to figure out why I had bisexual thoughts, so I thought, maybe there is a biological reason for me.
But I knew it had to do with the way I felt.
I was confused by the way my body felt when I was gay, so my hormones were not in the right place to help me transition.
So I started to feel weird and uncomfortable in my body.
I thought it was because I had a brain that had to go into a different place, to be able to navigate this new world.
But as my hormones started to drop, I felt more comfortable in my bodies.
I started looking for my biological gender identity in order to navigate these feelings and fears.
I began exploring my biological and sexual history.
I felt as though my biological sex was not the only thing I wanted, and that there was more to my identity than just being gay.
When a doctor told me my body was different from other people, I started feeling more comfortable with my biological body.
But my hormones didn’t go into my body in the same way that hormones do in people who have a mental health condition, and I started noticing changes in my appearance.
I noticed a change in my face, and my body also started to look different, and then my mind started to change.
I didn’t want to transition because I didn, or because I thought I was, or didn’t care, or wanted to be, or felt uncomfortable with my body, Kopp said.
I also didn’t know that I had gender dysphoric disorder.
I don’t have a gender identity disorder because I don. And
