I’m not right in the head, but that has nothing to do with transitioning. I think the “right in the head” statement didn’t bother me because I’ve never felt shame or that I was actually not right in the head because of my gender identity or anything else. I’ve considered my interest in many non-convential subjects and topics as part of experiencing life in the brief time we’re here — in life.
As to why I want to change, it’s who I am and back when I was young it wasn’t a viable option. I didn’t hate my male body but I did feel a sense of well being when I realized my real gender and was fortunate enough to be able to start my transition. Having said that, I’ve always wanted breasts. I find the female body much more attractive than any male body.
