Nobody really talks about the consequences of socially transitioning, especially in kids. I missed out on a lot of important female socialization. While I got to watch my peers enter relationships and grow as people, I was alone, telling myself and everyone else a lie.
I started binding after being groped at 13, and continued to do so until I went under the knife. Long after my breasts are gone, my ribs are still malformed, because binders work by pushing breasts into the ribcage. I was about a B cup and my binder fit perfectly.
It also caused my breasts to lose their shape and I hated the look of it, I thought that I would never recover. This was one of several factors that led to me getting a mastectomy.
Social transitioning is a gateway drug.
