"Before I found out about the trans community here in France, I already identified myself as an animal-person. However I've never related to the whole "werewolf folklore" as many therians do - after all, I'm not a wolf, and it may just be that. However the more I got to know the trans community, especially the FtM identities and such, the more I connected to this Freak identity I first didn't understand well. It may also be related to the fact I started taking testosterone and there is something fascinating in watching your body change and transform into something else, something Other and totally outside of society's binary standards about what a human body is supposed to be like. From that freak identity I started drawing parallels with monsters such as the werewolf archetype - as if transguys' bodies would be covered in fur like werewolves', for a concrete example. My image of the werewolf is more that of a gentle and misunderstood monster, albeit farouche, though. This is something I relate to very well, especially as a transboy.
So that's it. Trans bodies = freak identity = monsters = werewolf."
