I'm female and I want to transition to being male. I'm asexual and aromantic too btw. I never really felt feminine and I hate being a woman. When I told my parents they got angry and kicked me out. I'm using my mobile data to write this. I have enough money for a few days but it's not enough..



Advice please!

Advice please!
Go to your local council and tell them you are trans and need support. You should be speaking with the Council more than TSR.

You could call childline: https://www.childline.org.uk/ (0800 1111) or other helplines, and/or find a trusted friend or family member.

If you are under 16 and live in the UK I don't think your parents have the legal right to not provide for you. If you are 16-17 in the UK you have priority for housing. http://england.shelter.org.uk/legal/...d_17-year-olds. (england shelter urgent helpline: 0808 800 4444)

You could approach police and tell them about your situation and that you need help with living arrangements, and during the time when you are still on the streets try to get help from shelters and food banks:

Call your local council and tell them the situation - tell them that you've become homeless and then they have the responsibility to find you somewhere to stay. If possible, even apply for universal credit because if you're 16-18 you can apply since you'd be classed as estranged from parents. I'd also look into the YMCA housing within your area, they may have rooms available and if they do, and you want a room - they will interview you and then decide if they will give you the room. They're usually really good with giving rooms, especially if you're homeless. If you try looking on booking.com for rooms at hostels while you sort something out, they can be cheap depending on the area. I wish you all the luck in the world and I'm really sorry that your parents have done this. If you need any more advice, just ask. I've recently just helped my boyfriend who had been made homeless, and I can do research for you. I can send you my number if you want to talk any more.

I personally do not agree with transgenderism, but I think the important thing now is safety.

If you are under 16 I don't believe parents in the UK have the legal right to not provide for you. If you are 16-17 you have priority for housing. http://england.shelter.org.uk/legal/...d_17-year-olds

Try these: https://www.crisis.org.uk/get-help/
They're a charity within the UK who may be able to help, they're in 12 locations across the UK. Do you also have basic necessities? If not, they're should be some charities nearby who are able to give you a bag of items to carry with you, and some food for the time being.

I want to transition from being female to male. I hate being a woman it's horrible for me.

it's not a sexual thing i'm asexual and aromantic i just don't feel like a girl. i hate feminine things i love short hair, boys clothes and video games.. i am a man on the inside not a woman..

My parents kicked me out and said I cannot return unless I stay as my assigned gender at birth. as a muslim i should obey my parents .


What should I do? Continue being female or leave but lose my family and be male?

I am Muslim but I think being LGBT+ is natural in some people. I interpret my religion in a liberal and an open minded way. I'm not a muslim fundamentalist..
Tell me what to do?
What is your choice tell me please?

firstly.. enjoying you calling an incredibly liberal/accepting person transphobic. Its a pretty telling thing to do...

Secondly.. i've been there and done the trans thing. take your time with it - don't rush into it, and remember a few things:

1, nothing magically changes after you come out.. its a long process if you do go down that route, and you need to be mentally capable of dealing with it - that starts with being stable enough before you set off, something which you don't seem to be.
2, you can express as much 'male' characteristics as you like without transitioning. You have 2 years until your an adult and can do what you like and leave home easily. It may be that the most sensible route is that you just be a really really boyish girl for the next two years, then when your at uni - do what ever the hell you want and your parents won't be able to do a thing
3, Gender non-conformity doesn't mean your transgender.. and mental-pain comes from many sources. Really take your time to question yourself and think whether your pain is caused by your gender, or whether there are wider reasons.


I ask you to think about them because from personal experience, they really matter. It may be that you go through all of it, and then still decide there is no option but to transition - in which case go to your GP and get the ball rolling if you can deal with your parents, if you cant, then wait..

For me, I have always been a bit of a gender-non conformist.. I could easily make the opposite list that you did about girl things.. and when I was going through a really bad time, I was really anxious, depressed and down, I thought the two were connected.. I am feeling awful, and I don't fully conform to my gender? I must be transgender, and this feeling must be dysphoria. After that its very easy to convince yourself that your feelings are real, and painful. No one can question you because only you know your feelings, so its really simple to have people believe you. Turns out for me though it was wrong, I caused myself years more of pain, lost a lot of people, created permanent scars in my relationships with my family, missed some of the potentially best years of my life... all of which led me to exile myself away from everything half of the way around the world. Turns out I am not transgender, I'm just a boy who has a few more feminine tendencies then most boys, and who gets along with girls better then boys.. turns out it wasn't dysphoria I was feeling it was an awful bout of depression with some other mental health issues thrown in, that I would eventually somewhat work my way through.

I wish I could say that I would have listened to myself back then, but honestly - if someone told me what I am telling you know, I would have told them to **** off for being a trans phobic ****.

Still, you can always try.

if you don't feel like a girl and you actually feel like a boy, there's nothing more you can do than to wait till you can actually move from your parents. you can't do anything about it, unless there's a place for you to go. start with a binder and then move onwards slowly. this sorta stuff takes over a year though, so you need to be careful and you can't actually do it all untill you're away from your parents tbh

Hi there,

Just to let you know I've moved your 3 threads into one as they are on the same subject. Please don't post more than one thread on the same topic unless a number of months have passed. This is a general rule, no matter what the content.

I hope things get better for you soon!

Moderation note: please do not post anything offensive, off-topic, or spam in threads. Debating transgender issues should go in the Society forum, this thread is to offer advice and support only. Please think about how your words may affect other, very vulnerable people. Any further rule breaking rules will be removed and warned.

Thank you.
