In brief: To Be or Not to Be

...Urseif: if the gender w/which u identify doesn't match the gender u were assigned at birth, life can b very complicated.
Coming out & living ur life as ur affirmed gender can create conflicts & problems. But not coming out & not living ur life as ur affirmed gender can also create terrible conflict & inner turmoil. A 2010 survey of trans-identified people in us found 41% have attempted suicide.
