I think it's easy to sensationalize transition as a binary: from female to male, from long hair to short hair, from girl to boy... but the reality is pictures are reductive, and I have always been me. I have always felt the way I feel about myself. I just didn't always have the words.
I am so thankful that someone gave me the words. And that I found the strength to share these words with the world. I'm so thankful for those around me who empowered me to speak up, and who loved me unconditionally when they did.
Transition is not binary. It is not simple. It is individual. It is not two pictures side by side. It is everything in between.
