I always wanted to be a girl. A girl, an honest to goodness girl, with all the girl things to do, all the girl things to learn, and all the boys to flirt with.
I never wanted to be a boy. So now I am a transgender-woman, and I am a woman now.
I didn’t fantasize being a transgender-girl, I fantasized being a girl.
I would trade in a blink to be a cis-girl, and I would want this miracle to have happened 68 years ago.
