I am a GIRL and will be Sent to Conscription with male military forces in a year.What should i do ?

A+ A-

Biologically i was born a male.But since i was a little kid,my brain and spirit always felt like a girl. Before i even knew about transgenders or LGBTQ people. I actually thought i was the only human being stuck in the wrong body.Anyway ! I always treated myself and talked to it as a girl.I'm pretty sure people here are familiar with my story and it's struggles. But I'm 22 now and I didn't have my transition yet, and i have a brother. Which means I am going to place loaded with men that i will sleep,eat,shower...etc with !!! I don't know if like i even survived not getting bullied or raped,if i will survive mentally ! I don't really know what to do ! Suicide sometimes seems an answer to this particular problem ! I don't hate my life ! I love and accept myself ! but i'd rather die than go through this horrific experience

I am geniusly against nationalism ! thinking my dirt is better than yours cause i was born on it !!! but if it's an obligation to go to the army, i don't mind at all !I am a tough girl ! I have been through bad shit ! but let it be with female military.

I don't know what to do please help, advice, i am losing time and hope .

  • Oh NO! This sounds terrible. Is military service mandatory where you are? Do you have the means to talk a european or american attorney about the process for applying for asylum elsewhere? I believe forced military conscription can be a reason for asylum but I'm not a lawyer.

    التجنيد Conscription is compulsory in Egypt for males of ages between 18 and 30.Service is postponed for students until their studies are finished, before they turn 25 years old and they can not travel abroad without travel permit from the Ministry of Defense.A conscript can be enlisted in one of the various arms and branches of the Egyptian Army, the Egyptian Air Defence Forces or the Egyptian Navy.

    Advice

    Hi Julliet,

    Asked a lawyer in Egypt and this was their advice:

    "There is no easy way for her to avoid service, unless she evades registration, flees the country and applies for asylum from abroad or applies for asylum whilst still in Egypt. I think her asylum application may actually be successful if followed through or if she travels abroad, she can apply whilst in a country with a progressive asylum policy if she can successfully prove a well-founded fear of persecution if repatriated."

    If you legally transition from male to female, I think you can pretty much evade military service. I know how mad this will be because just a taste of it through the military education course was enough to trigger intense gender dysphoria that turned me towards excessive consumption of hash, alcohol and tobacco for a long while. After sobering up I just had to start doing anything to transition which I am now doing.

    Good luck Juliet!! Do whatever it takes to avoid this!!
