Imagine what its like to be something you’re not.
I am born in the wrong body. I am the wrong gender. I am the wrong everything.
Imagine looking in to the mirror and seeing a complete stranger. This skin is not mine, it feels uninviting and alien. But you will never understand. You go through your daily lives taking your body and lifestyle for granted.
But me? I am imprisoned inside this foreign flesh and blood and will never escape. I wish there was a word for this kind of feeling and mentality.. where you’re born in a body you know isn’t yours. Perhaps one day someone else will feel this way and they will make a word for it.
So who am I, really?
I am Shrek the ogre trapped in a human female’s body. I invite you all to take a journey with me where I fight to become who I truly am… and fight for my rights along the way!
