This Is A Repeat Story, It's The Same As My Bisexual Story, They're Kinda Intertwined....

  Ok, I've been laying bare my soul on here since I joined, so why stop now? I'm a transsexual person, and was born a genetic male. Before I realized there was something not quite right in my life, I got beat up a lot at school, and always felt out of place. I saw what happened to anyone that was different, so I kept all my feelings inside, and after I graduated from high school, I tried to just be 'normal'. I had a girlfriend, she left me, and so I started dating another, and she got pregnant. I thought the correct thing to do at this point was get married, so we did, and everything unravelled in less than a year. It was an ugly divorce, and my son was unfortunately in he middle. Long story short, I realized that I was also attracted to men. It also became increasingly apparent that I was not a typical male. My libido was a bit low, and I was a gushing romantic. I wore androgynous clothes and had long hair, still I tried to fit in, but it was a losing battle. 


My female mind was struggling to get out, and I began expressing myself in more feminine terms. I saw a Doctor and he diagnosed me as Gender Dysphoric. After this I had a boyfriend, and it was all very romantic, but he left me and married another girl, and I began hanging out in alt bars and the Village in Toronto. I was a regular Rainbow child, and a bit of an activist, and I had several boyfriends over the next few years, but nothing too serious. So, to sum this up before it turns into another life story, although I prefer men and haven't been with a woman in many years, I believe I'm still bisexual, because every once in awhile I'll be very attracted to a woman I meet. I actually had a lesbian woman lust after me for a bit, and her masculinity attracted me quite a lot. Confusing, you say?

Anyway, I'm just your typical garden variety trans/bi poster child feminist LGBT activist, and you've heard this story hundreds of times.
