Being Different

Many people find the gender assigned to them by society, be it male or female, doesn't match how they feel about themselves, and their own self image. They may self-define as transgender, polygender, transsexual or one of the growing number of names for those who choose to break away from society's dualistic view of gender. However they may wish to face the world, being different can be a daunting task, and a little guidance may be helpful.
