    Hi! Quick background, i am a 17 year old pansexual girl.
    I like being a girl and identify as a girl, but sometimes i feel like a boy. In private I carry myself and dress like a boy at times, but i have a lot of issues because I dont feel comfortable doing or feeling this way. I also cringe internally whenever anyone uses she/her when talking about me and occasionally get "penis envy".
    My questions would be can I identify as a girl if I use boy pronouns? How do i get comfortable being a boy with/without presenting as one? Is there a title for any of this or anything im missing? Any advice would be a world of help. Thank you.

    Sure, use any pronouns you like. There are no rules. For the rest of your question, I'm going to have to pass. I'm M2F, and really don't understand anything about boys or men, being one, becoming one, etc. But as far as the pronouns, go for it (in my opinion).

    Hugs,
    Audry

    Another suggestion is you could be a Demigirl like me, identifying partially as female and partially another gender (in this case male). (I go by she/her, he/him and they/them). But hey, you know you better then any of us, so you do you!

    You can use any pronouns you'd like. I am currently FTM and have also been through that. If you feel like both you could use the pronouns they/them or just say you don't care about which pronouns are used. I used they/them pronouns until January of 2016 only because I was told that it was wrong to be Transgender. I have always known I was a boy but I still like girly things and I don't normally hang around guys. As far as your situation I would advise you be comfortable with you because at the end of the day You are you and You're great. Use any pronouns you want. I admit that it is going to take some time for people to get used to, even yourself but once you are used to it, its like you are finally free.

    Using a set of pronouns doesn't necessarily mean you identify with that gender! Pronouns and gender shouldn't be inherently tied -- you can be male-identifying and use she/her if you want, or female-identifying and use he/him if you want...or they/them, or what have you. It might be hard for some people to figure out and wrap their heads around at first, but in the end it comes down to what you feel will be best for you!!

    There is actually a category that touches on that very subject and that is being a term called Genderfluid. Meaning you can associate as a male or female. Sometimes you're a male and sometimes you're a female

    This video talks a little bit about some non-cis identities if you want to watch it. Hope I helped you. :)
