    So how do you deal with having inner and outer at odds like that?
    I guess I mostly try to avoid it; mostly because I have no way to express how I feel internally. My family is all pretty conservative so we clash on most political issues. They're all extremely religious; my mother is an ESFJ if that tells you anything, so the gay thing was already hard enough for her to swallow, pun intended. She makes small concessions to my gender identity; recently we got new loofahs for the shower, and she got them in all different colors, so she let me pick the pink one. My animosity towards her comes from earlier comments she's made basically humiliating me for wanting to express my femininity; even yesterday when I picked out the loofah she still made a joke out of it. I figure there's two ways I could have gone to satisfy her: Either be a heterosexual man or a heterosexual woman, but the way I feel I'd be more comfortable as a heterosexual woman. I'm just struggling with making myself happy and keeping her happy at the same time.

    Well, then, i guess you really are fortunate, aren't you?

    That's sucky. Hopefully it's a semi-temporary situation. You can make different living arrangements at some point and some of the friction might die down.

    I feel you about the conservative family. I'm hetero and have been married to the same man for twenty years, but my family still treats me like I'm contaminated or defective because I'm politically and fiscally liberal and I don't go to church. It doesn't feel very nice, but keeping distance allows me not to think about it very often. Anyway, you're not alone in that boat and I suspect if they are like my family they'd find something to disapprove of even if you were straight and gender-typical (sorry if that's the wrong term).
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I've always wondered what it would be like to be the opposite gender. I would fantasize sometimes about being on the opposite end of the gender spectrum. Does anyone else experience this? I'm not gender confused or gay or anything btw. I'm straight and am attracted to the opposite sex.

    I'm female, heterosexual, and cisgendered, and I've experienced this a lot. I also frequently have dreams where I'm a guy.

    I'm happy to be female. I don't know -- I just feel like guys get judged pretty harshly for certain things. Girls can wear pants; guys can't wear skirts. Girls can be tomboy-ish or super girly and they both work. Guys, however, are usually not allowed to display any femininity. Also, we're slowly getting rid of all the social inequalities so eventually girls will have all the power.

    What defines the "normal range" of feminine behavior? How does one tell if something is outside that range? I would suspect significant overlap between "normal feminine" and "normal masculine", as well as considerable individual variation.

    You are not responsible for your mother's happiness. If you are respectful of her as your mother, observant of the rules of the house while you live there, honest and dependable, you have done your part. If it takes more than that to make her happy, that is something she must deal with.
