Hello all, Yesterday, I did my first shopping in the men's section in my local Walmart. I bought some boxers, a long sleeved shirt with a beanie, and a new flannel shirt. I also bought a sports bra to help with binding. My binding job isn't perfect but it has helped so much. While my chest isn't completely flat, it's flat enough to make me feel better. Today is also my first time wearing boxers and it feels so natural. This may not be a big deal to many, but to somepony like me, this is huge. I actually feel a bit manly today. It is my first step and this journey is going to take time. I just felt it appropriate to document this occasion. If anypony has any other pretransition tips, I'd appreciate them. I can't afford a binder yet but am making do with what I have. I feel better. Nopony can take this away from me. Thank you to everypony who commented on my previous thread. It means alot. You guys are awesome. -Bakura PS: no I'm not out to family as ftm yet. I still have to deal with being misgendered and it stinks. Just yesterday, my dad said something about a "girl's" hat and I flinched. How did/do you guys deal with this while being in the closet? It doesn't bother me as much because I'm becoming more confident in who I am, even if I don't "pass" very well.
