    I'm not a transgender.

    I'm a human being and I consider transgender as human beings too. We all are breathing under same roof on this planet with a qualification of living and having the right to nurture our environment and Mother Earth.

    Maybe I am not on hormones yet, but I'm seriously thinking about it. and beside that I dress like a girl at least three days a week. I think I can indentify myself better as a transgender than as a man.

    where a FAAB person likeing traditional feminine things like nail polish or hair care, somehow diminishes that persons Trans-ness. anyway, I know (hope) thats bogus but its been something im dealing with lately.

    It is so hard to be transgendered.

    But it's even harder to be married, a father and also be transgendered. I love my wife more than anything in the world. I am afraid I'm either going to lose a big part of me (the woman I am on the in side), or the woman I love. So it's a lose, lose situation.
