My 14 Yr daughter

My daughter has slowly been changing her appearance, it started off with wearing mens clothing, now she has cut all her hair off. Wen I ask why she prefers mens clothes she tells me she hates having a feminine body. She says she doesn't want to be a boy but doesn't want to look like a girl. I feel as tho I'm losing my daughter and don't know how to handle it
