Here I will blather endlessly about my feelings and opinions related to my transitioning.
This is a secondary blog, so I can't follow-back.
Hi there, Anon
I’m 5’4” on a very good day provided I’m wearing the right shoes.
I don’t know what my height would be otherwise as I don’t ask/don’t get it checked. My license reads 5’3” because when I went to get that changed the person checking the form missed that box so after the temp was printed when I asked about it he said I’d need to wait in line all over again and I couldn’t afford to miss work. I’ll change that when I get my name changed this summer.
But to answer your question, I’m short, and relatively baby faced if I shaved. I keep reminding myself that there are in fact cisguys who are my height or shorter. There are actors just a couple inches taller than me. I walk around town and ride the bus with guys my height or shorter, I go to school with guys my height or shorter, and there will always be guys my height or shorter.
That being said I think it helps that my partner is just about my height, and my best friend is an inch shorter (not to say the answer to all your problems is to surround yourself with short people). But height has become so much less of a deal than it was. I feel so much more secure in myself, that I don’t notice my height much, and it bothers me so much less often.
I hope that helped.
