I don't think I've ever seen someone ask "should I [transition/take this transition step]" who doesn't already, to some degree, know the answer. They just want permission to want it.
Usually they claim to be unsure or conflicted because they're ambivalent now, yet wanting something else.
That's it. You have the answer. Because we learn to cope, dysphoria often feels not like self-revulsion, but ambivalence. Their question amounts to "should I pursue euphoria?"
Yes. You have permission. Do it.
I just want to say that it's kind of fucked up that you and I are expected to continue performing at high levels through a pandemic, but in the last six months I've watched various bedrock foundational systems including federal education and public health systems fail and basic routine stuff like home sale transactions get botched.
Things aren't great!
I'm the admin of https://mspsocial.net though you may know me better from other recent public activities. Contact me if you have questions about the instance or adjusting to mastodon generally.
Other things I do are bike, play volleyball, and get cancelled #onhere for being a pragmatist.
