I Am Different ... I Am TransexualFor many who know me and those who have read my stories it is well know that I am a transexual ... a woman born in a man's body.
I've known I was a girl (at that age) and a woman all my life. Female, despite my birth defect.
I have thoughts, feelings, desires of a woman and I have on occasion acted on them.
This is not limited to my clothing choices but also my choice of sexual partners ... for me it must be a man.
I have accepted myself, with all my shot-comings and desires, long ago.
And yet I know there are still many in this world who do not and never will accept me for a multitude of reasons.
They are there reasons and I realize that.
I don't mind them commenting on my stories as long as they are not derogatory or down right rude and insulting.
For when they are that way the denigrate not only me but others like me.
It hurts to be verbally slapped this way.
I will not block you or delete you comments unless they are 'beyond the pale' and not only derogatory but also foul in their writing.
I know acceptance, tolerance and open mindedness is not a strong suit for many in this world.
But I go through every day with the hope in my heart that someday things will change.
I know and want to thank many here and by extension in the world who are tolerant of me and those like me.
It lets me realize that they maybe in fact some hope of being myself within this world.
