    Just Being Me!

    I've been a single mom for the past 18+ years. This means I've had to be the man (buying cars and a house, working a full-time job, maintaining vehicles, paying bills, killing bugs, etc.) as well as the woman (nuturing, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc.) in so many...

    What Now?

    When I was growing up, I was always a little different. Nerdy, but not exceptionally. Awkward, but friendly and welcoming. Then I was berated with the ever-exhausting question, "Are you gay?" I've always wanted to yes, because it would make things so much easier. The...

    Cross-dresser Forever?

    I'm feeling rather depressed right now... A few months ago, I finally gave in to the truth and admitted to myself that I am a woman. I had known this since childhood but fought against the truth. It took me years, trying to live according to my birth gender, playing the role...

    To Be Sure!

    Gender identity is defined as the inner sense of being a man or woman, regardless of biological sex. It has nothing to do with and is not the same as sexual orientation. Been this way since childhood and it never changes. I am a female, a woman, regardless of what my outside...

    Sadly It Was A Feeling Of Self-disgust (confused About My Sexuality... Again...)

    I'm going through one of those motions again where I feel totally fine with being same-sex attracted. Even admitting to myself that I'm probably only attracted to women which the last year or so has helped me re-discover and reaffirm. I was very comfortable with identifying as...

    To Wear Another Side Of Me For A Day

    I feel like a born-male who feels trapped in a female body, yet I am a female and always have been. Suppose I'm pretty lucky then! But I think these mixed feelings have been the result of me being lucky enough not to have been too influenced by the social-norms of female and male...

    More On This Subject Of Gender Identity

    Every transgender girl is different, so I can only talk about me and my experiences. I do so often here at EP and share my stories and thoughts and desires. If you only think that a transsexual woman as being a "she-male" (an offensive term), or a woman with...

    I am not physically male,

    I should be but I am not. Ever since I was little I knew I was in the wrong body. I don't want to transition, it wouldn't make me any more male than I am now and it wouldn't make my life better. All that stuff is great for people who feel it helps them, go for it and I admire...

    For Life

    I have had gender issues my entire life. Unlike a lot of people who have gender identity issues I don't seem to relate more to one sex than another. I guess I'm just one of those whose androgynous by nature. I have done the hormone thing with doctors supervision and hours and...

    How It All Started

    I guess it all started back in the days when I use to play with my sister. She use to con me into doing her more girlish things and even playing games where I had to pretend I was a girl. I must have been 7 or 8 then and she's only less than a year behind me... by the time I was...

    Is This Me?

    When I was a kid I would always pretend to be a boy--whether it be while playing a pretend game or in real life. Several times I insisted that I was actually a boy but my parents changed my gender because they wanted a girl, that I would become a boy, and when my friends made up...
