What if I am a FEMININE MALE?

The Reitz-TeechConsult Test has classified your internal gender identity to be mostly masculine and that your gender issues are primarily matters of personal expression rather than a medical problem. Any struggles you have are most likely caused by internal shame over your needs and desires or because of curiosity over what those needs represent. There is, however, some indication of a strong feminine side to your being, and this is intrinsic to your personality.

Then WHAT?

Your situation is fairly uncomplicated, so you should be relieved. Since your situation is almost certainly not a matter of any real physical or biological concern, the suggestions for your circumstance are relatively simple:

1. If you feel uncomfortable about your gender expression, counselling might be helpful. The primary goal would be to make it possible for you to enjoy your gender expressions free from shame or embarrassment and to resolve any questions you might have.

2. Your gender issues and expressions are more than mere play, and are a form of personal identity expression but this is no indication of transexualism. Indeed, all information suggests that the path of the transexual is not one you should take, as it would almost certainly lead to severe unhappiness.

It is possible that a partial step towards greater feminine expression might lead to greater happiness, but such an undertaking should be approached with extreme caution.
