Since I was a 5 year old boy I longed to be a girl. As I have matured I have contemplated the questions:
1) Am I a man who has an unnatural desire to a woman? Or
2) Am I a woman who just wants to be?
And in light of my deep Biblical faith the questions have morphed into, “Am I woman who has been tasked for whatever reason with male responsibilities in this world?”
Perhaps there is another / are others that I am not seeing. However I believe before I can move forward decisively one of those questions (or one not yet asked) must be answered. In that answer I believe I would find that solid footing on which to move forward. What a relief to be delivered from the mire.
In the meanwhile I come here. It used to be CDH, but I feel I fit in so much better here.
I come for two reason:
1) to learn from others that have perhaps answered those or similar questions previously.
2) because I would really like the answer to be grounded in question #2, I come to be Charlene – if only momentarily, vicariously, but always delighfully. As life at this moment doesn’t readily permit me to live as a woman I find here I can do so with no impunity.
Many here have made your dream your reality. Thank you for being here where I (and I believe other also) can draw strength, hope, acceptance, kindness, understanding, and vicarious life to make my / our male reality much more bearable.
Keep sharing your life and successes. They are treasures to we, who in the moment can only live our lives vicariously.
