I came from an athletic family, so that wasn't a surprise. When we are growing up, trans people like me learn early on how to play the roles expected of us.

I barely made it through high school locker rooms and I was closeted. Threatening trans kids into using the incorrect locker rooms sets them up for a lifetime of toxic gender perceptions and pain. I spent my own teenage years struggling with gender dysphoria, which is the clinical term for the feeling that many trans people experience of having a body that is incongruent with their inner sense of their own gender.
