Wanting a sex change... (10)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2007-12-09 21:41 ID:SuMemAhE

I have had a very steady relationship for about two years now, and nothing has really come between myself (female) and my boyfriend (except for some religious issues). About halfway into our relationship, I came out of the closet as a bisexual after a long period of denial. My boyfriend was OK with that. I still am uncomfortable with having sexual attractions to females, though.

But recently, I have been thinking about how I feel about both men and women throughout my life. I thought about how basically all my life I have been friends with guys, and that I forget that I am a girl a lot when I am hanging out with my friends (until they're drunk). I don't think the bisexuality has anything to do with it, but I have come to the conclusion that I feel like a gay man in a woman's body.

I have certain hobbies like writing, cosmetology, and painting, and I feel guilty when doing them. I feel that they aren't fit to me. If I was a homosexual male, my passion for them would probably bloom out more. I don't really know how to explain this very well, it's a strange feeling. I mean, all my life, through high school and stuff, I just have felt as if I never fit in, or was different, even though I had tons of friends and went out a lot. I just always felt different. I think this is what I was feeling, wanting to get a sex change.

Well, TL;DR version, how can I explain to my boyfriend that I want a sex change? And if you were in his position, what would you do? I'm really frustrated about this. Should I tell my parents as well?
