Also where's the best place to get a binder, I kinda want one now I'm kinda more out.
Another thing is my voice is driving me insane, it's so squeaky and mumbly. I want to sound androgynous. Stupid fucking vocal cords.
And the gender shit is making my ED worse, or is my ED making more confused about my gender.
I wish this shit was easy.

That's really great to hear @redhead! I'm glad some people have been supportive of your name
I've heard really good things about this company which makes binders, gc2b - https://www.gc2b.co - I don't know of any Australian ones though, unless you decide to bind with sports bras or something similar.
Ah I get the hating-my-voice thing too, it's horrible, hey? I think there are ways to change or train your voice, I can have a look around for you if you want?

I used to do a bit of voice training when I was in a choir (higher unfortunately) but I don't know how to retrain it again.

Do you think voice training will help you with your voice? I'm not really sure how but I'm sure there are people out there who do know

Just want to say that whatever your identity is, society is likely to accept people. For example, at footy training I played on someone who is transgender. Some one called them a her and they did not hesitate to correct and say it's him
This sounds ridiculous but today I used my old email account (the one that uses my birth name) to send an email to my new email account (the one that uses my chosen name) and when I opened up my emails like an hour later I saw the email and I just went '??? Who tf is that???' before I realised it was me and it made me really happy that my birth name isn't instantly recognisable to me anymore. It reminded me that maybe one day I won't have to hear/see it at all
