I will always be “Transgender”, no matter how well my procedures turn out. I very much hope to “pass”, but passing is a cosmetic goal, not an eraser of my past. I have experienced the hardships of desires, how they altered my relationships with men and woman alike. My struggles with transgender desires has taught me so much about people and society, and it has lead me onto a path of tolerance that I am very proud of.
How can I after all I have been through even consider stepping away from all my brothers that want to be sisters. Who else knows how sincere this desire really is; how beautiful & harmless, and yet so despised by the ignorant.
I am going to spend the rest of my life trying to educate the ignorant; primarily by being the best woman I can be, and by being proud of my courage to be that woman.
