I’m curious when you began to suspect that there was more to the gender journey than a fascination with clothes of the opposite gender. That perhaps transition was something in your future?
For myself, I remember going to sleep when I was young wishing, praying, hoping to wake up in the right body. Night after night after night. Somewhere along the way I forgot this, and thought it was just a phase, or just a fascination. It wasn’t until many many years later that I was able to remember who I was.
When did you first suspect?
I knew I was a girl when I was 6 years old and in first grade. I used to play with the girls in recess. I was picked on by boys that called me a sissy. I really wanted to play with the girls and not the boys.
I used to pray to God that he would change me into a girl. I want to be a girly girl.
