Yes, thanks for posting DameQ. Its interesting that even those who don't actually ever feel the need to become another gender still have gender confusion to an extent. I guess part of what you are describing is gender-typed confusion as a reaction to something.
I try to think if there is anything i was trying to rebel against when i cryed when i had to wear dresses and loved dressing boyish and climbing trees etc. I wonder if on some level i was rejecting femininity because i knew somehow that i was queer, on some level, even from a very young age. I wonder if a part of me saw what 'types' dated women and somehow assimilated myself to be more like this.
I think it can work in different ways for different people. I know some quite 'butch' women who have told me they were bi but that it was easier for them to identify as lesbian. I was friends with a woman who had a beard and was bi but said that only lesbians would date her. I guess this throws up lots more questions really but it is interesting.
