Is it normal i'm trans-fictional

Joke title aside. Is it normal that I see myself as various cartoon characters, to where I model my appearance and personality after them? I've even styled my hair like theirs, which takes a lot of hair gel mixed with glue to get it just right. It makes me so happy to imagine I'm in their body. With all the other kinds of dysphoria out there, I don't see why this should be so rare. I know there was a guy on Totally Obsessed that was "trans-Peter Pan". Lots of haters, but he looked good and seemed nice.

Is It Normal?

  • i wish i could do this sometimes... statistically speaking it is abnormal, but sort of like cosplaying or furries. just on a higher extent.

    i would continue if it’s your passion, but remember to be stationed in reality, or it might become an unhealthy obsession.

    hope it goes well for you!

    • Definitely like cosplaying, although I'm kind of uncomfortable with the idea of that. I know that I'm not really the character, so any flaw that I or any other cosplayer would make, even trying to recreate them in reality, feels wrong. I just like to incorporate their mannerisms and styles into my own, and just pretend to myself that I am in their body.

      • oh yeah that’s kinda what i meant as in cosplay,, not just looking the part but acting like them too!

  • Definitely not normal but very interesting! What I'm getting from this is that it's like roleplaying but in daily life instead of normal roleplaying with friends maybe once or twice a week. Maybe I should start incorporating quirks from fictional characters into my life too.

  • If you like cosplaying as them then that's cool. It's also normal to want to be them since they are purposely designed to be as awesome as they can make them. I used to feel like shit for comparing myself to Batman and James Bond, until I realised that they're just written to have those impossible standards.

    But to feel like you actually ARE them isn't normal tbh. It's normal enough to admire them so much and to be so passionate about them that you live your life how they would (to an extent), but to actually think you are them isn't. You should want to be yourself, you're good enough. In fact maybe this all stems from poor self-esteem? Maybe you don't view yourself as good enough so you want to be someone better? Idk. I don't see it as healthy either way anyway.

  • This has nothing to do with gender or transgenderism, so I don't get why you would compare it to such things.

    • I didn't. Gender was not mentioned here.
      (Although, all the characters I've done this with happen to be the opposite sex too, but that's mostly irrelevant.)

  • As long as it's not getting in the way of you working, eating, sleeping, your relationships, having a roof over your head or anything else important in life, it's pretty harmless. Keep doing what you want.

    • Sometimes I don't feel like eating or sleeping because that would remind me that I'm real again. Also, I don't have any relationships, I feel more love for the characters I do this with than any real people I currently know.

  • Ever heard of the Final Fantasy house? Anyway, this is abnormal.

    • Just looked it up. Holy shit - interesting stuff. So, being "trans-fictional" is actually called soulbonding, then?

  • If that's what makes you happy go for it

    • I agree wholeheartedly. I'm transspecies myself actually, and some people don't understand. But I don't care. I was meant to be a dog, and I will always be a dog. I eat dog food, bark at the mailman, and chase squirrels.

      I have the body of a human, but I am a dog. I truly am a dog, I feel like a dog, and I am a dog. I wear a fursuit every day, and I get some looks. People judge me for it, but fuck them. I am a dog and proud of it! Woof!

        • Well, I have talked about my experiences with species dysphoria on this site, so it may have been me. Or not. Being transspecies is much more common than you may realize, but unfortunately, there is very little public awareness about us.

          However, I feel that species dysphoria needs to be something the general public is educated about, because unfortunately we face a lot of discrimination.

          For instance, as a trans dog, I should feel that I should be allowed to use lawns that are designated as a pet area as opposed to being forced to use the bathrooms with the humans. It really triggers my species dysphoria when I'm forced to use a toilet.
