My male gender fits me ever so badly. What do I do?

My gender identity has been something I've had a lot of thought and confusion about for some time. Now that I'm racing headlong towards 30, I feel like it's got to be time to do something about it rather than just pushing it down again, like I've been doing all my life. I was born male, and I have an overwhelming urge to be feminine, to be a girl. Not a snowflake, but a snowdrift inside. [more inside]

Top job candidate was sloppy, didn't hew to gender norms, during the interview. Now what?

My husband is transgendered. How do I tell my parents?

My husband will probably be starting hormones and this may eventually lead to gender reassignment surgery. I fully support him, however it goes. There is a lot of advice out there for how transgendered people should tell their partners or parents, but very little for how supportive partners should tell their families. Any advice?

Mean Girls

Why don't other women like me? Women who meet me singly, or as part of a mixed-gender group usually like me. I function just fine in mixed-gender or mostly male situations. When I'm part of an all-woman group, I get bullied and scapegoated. In particular, the "queen bee" of the group almost always singles me out as a target. What am I doing wrong?

Should I act on my sexual attraction to women before I settle down into a monogamous sex life with a man?

I'm a late 20s woman who has only ever been in relationships with men. I'm fairly sure I'll only ever fall in love with a man, although I fantasize regularly about women. Should I act on my sexual attraction to women before I settle down into a monogamous sex life with a man? I'm not really into casual sex at this point in my life, but I can't picture myself in a serious relationship with a woman either.
