"My vagina [anything]."
"[x] thinks I am crazy because I 'think I am a man'."
"Ah, on my period again."
"I need to see the doctor for [enter gynecological condition here]."
Self talk damages. Messages like the ones above are reinforcing ownership of the wrong body. Not only is there the rest of the world telling us by action, word, and glance that we are the wrong gender, thoughts like the above are also telling us the same straight to our subconscious.

I recently said that "[x person] is telling people that I am crazy because I 'think I am a man'," which, as hard as I try to find a way to reframe this, I cannot. I cannot reframe ownership of the female body in that one.
This process has gotten me thinking about words and how powerful they are, how damaging they can be, how, through words, we program ourselves.
They call me Trixie,
The master bitch of all magic spells!
You say your name is Twilight Sparkle?
That don't ring any bells!
I've slayed an Ursa Major
All your feats are just minor!
I'll take you back to school, Twi,
And show you who's the best rhymer!
I got crowds, from everywhere!
They come to see my magic!
My spells are straight electrifying!
I'm droppin' gods, it's tragic!
So check yourself, you impudent foal!
I'll make you stagger!
By the way, your horn looks kinda limp,

And while you're at it,

You'd have to read to know how to breathe,
you're fucking that absurd!
I thought the books were better than you!
Ed and Bella have more class!
So just take a pass, 'cause if you keep comin'
then Trixie will come beat your ass!
Dear Princess Celestia,

Some mares like Trixie talk shit

To make it worse,
Always leavin' you sweatin'
