I\'m still hiding in the metaphorical closet, and so there is absolutely nothing I can do about my breasts and my too-wide hips and narrow shoulders. The only thing that makes me feel any better about my body is wearing a skirt, but then I can\'t pass for male or androgynous. Besides, it\'s much too cold outside for skirts. I don\'t think my parents would even understand my gender if I came out, much less support me. There is no one I can talk to about this except strangers on the internet.
