I still couldn’t put exactly how I feel into words but regardless I just really felt like I needed to make this video. Thank you to everyone who has always been so supportive it means the world. Stay strong.

Our professor assigned us an ‘inspiration’ project. We had the freedom to do whatever we wanted with it, so I thought it was a great opportunity to come out to my new class and tell them that I am a female to male transgender.

    I’m really proud you came out that’s very brave of you! I’m actually a
    lesbian and came out just to 2 friends one a week ago and the other 4
    months ago I’m ready to come out to my school but I want to come out to my
    parents first and my biggest struggle is to do it to my family (brothers
    sisters parents cousins uncles… )

    The society has too big of a problem with you, guys. People change their
    bodies all the time. Celebrities and the Regular people with money have
    Nose jobs, Boob job, Buttock augmentation, Glutathione injections, etc.
    They change their natural born bodies because they are unhappy. Same thing
    with Transgenders but why is it that you guys get such criticism?
    I have my bad moments as a bisexual female but i feel more bad for
    Transgenders. I just love everything about you, You’re pretty amazing,

    The university students are really cool, by the way.

    You’re lucky that you pass well and look good….the same can’t be said
    about most transgender, the ones that are bullied by the same people who
    are now pretending here to support transgender people….sigh

    I love the words you say, and want you to know, you are really beautiful.
    Also want to say, I am a guy, but for years I been wanting to be a girl, I
    felt like a girl for so long and I always been playing with girls as a
    child, doing typically “girl stuff”. I have yet to tell my parents about
    it, but I am scared, not of their reactions but when my brother knows. I
    don’t want to know what he will think about it, cause it scares me. I did
    start wearing tighter jeans, I have had makeup and dresses on. And female
    clothes make me more comfortable with myself. O totally feel like a girl,
    but I have only told a few people, plus comments on youtube to see a public
    reaction from people I don’t know. That is easier for me to understand what
    I should prepare for I guess. I also told some friends and my 2 ex’s. They
    both dumped me for this, tho one of them actually is bisexual. But I feel
    like I’m gonna come out with this to my family when they wake up or either
    in couple of days. And start wearing my tighter jeans again, start dressing
    like that again cause that’s what makes me comfy. Thanks for this video, it
    actually encourage me to tell them, and that is what I need. Thanks

    You are fucking beautiful and perfect in everyway. I came out as trans last
    summer and ive been on hrt for 3 months and its so amazing to feel
    comfortable in my own skin. Keep being perf. Even though I’m a new viewer
    im sure that you’ve already been inspirational to tons of young
    transpeople. Thank you for fighting to end transphobia.

    and for that I respect you even more. It doesn’t change my view on you and

    I admire you so much when it comes to attitude, style, and now confidence.
    While I myself am not transgender, I am a HUGE advocative supporter of
    gender fluidity. I love you Cwissi. Keep being amazing <3

    <3 My sister is transgender and she is very very insecure and hates being
    around people other than me, our mom, and my boyfriend... I really hope
    she'll start being more comfortable around people soon.
