When it comes to becoming a woman in a man’s world, there’s a lot of misinformation floating around.

But there are a few things you can do to make sure your life is more gender-neutral.


Be a woman first.

If you’re unsure if you’re ready to transition, here are some tips to help you get there.


Learn more about yourself.

If your transition is an issue, you can read more about your gender identity and explore the gender identity spectrum.

You can also look for resources to help navigate your transition.


Get involved.

If there’s an organization you believe can help you transition, you may want to consider becoming a member.

There are a number of organizations that support transitioning women, including the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), the Transgender Law Center (TLC), the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF), and GLAAD.


Have fun!

Asking questions is an important part of transitioning, and getting the right information can help make your transition more comfortable.


Start a support group.

A support group can help get you started, as can getting the support of your friends.

There’s a plethora of support groups for transitioning women that can help answer any questions you may have about your transition and provide practical support for navigating the transition process.


Talk to your doctor.

You may have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder, which can be extremely confusing and scary.

The first step is talking to your primary care physician.

He or she can offer you more information about your condition, discuss what you need to do, and provide you with referrals for mental health services.


Be honest with yourself.

Being transgender is not a choice.

The truth is that it doesn’t matter how you identify or what your gender looks like, because it’s your body and you have a right to it.

This means that being honest with who you are and where you are in your life can be empowering and can help alleviate some of the fear that you may be suffering from a mental illness.
