Let me reproduce here an email I received from a man who would like to be a woman through gender reassignment surgery.
“I have known for over 30 years that I was a woman in a man’s body and just tried to assume it was a phase! As I made my way into my 30′s I began to wear panties and bras, pantyhose for men, garter belts, high heels, blouses, skirts and dresses in secret! For 17 years I hid this from my wife and it ended up where all my intimacy was distracted from her to my role as “Erica”! The risk was high yet when I was Erica, I was in a state of bliss and comfort and calm and I knew I was closer to who I really was than ever.
We eventually divorced and I met a wonderful girl that I told everything to. She accepted that part of me. I began to seek out endocrinologists for hormonal treatment so I get the feminine figure I craved! I investigated feminine facial surgery to enhance feminine features on my face and hands. About $120,000 should do it and my health insurance would not pay for it!
My new wife, however, was a little panicked by the idea of my growing breasts only because of my work and family etc. She knew as I know all too well that I am a woman within and I am heterosexual! Even as a woman I would only want to be with a woman! Period!
I feel so ripped off by nature for making me male! I resent society for being so selfish and judgmental to those who are different yet harmless to all those around! It breaks my heart that I may never be able to live my dream before I get yet any older or for that matter die! People, is it so terrible that a man wants to be a woman? Dress as such? Think of the happiness that is created when someone like myself is accepted and even embraced for being a free spirit in a free society!
I don’t feel I should move to Sweden, or Switzerland, or France or England to feel more accepted as they are very much indeed there! There are even women who take to those such as myself! That is my dream and my confession! Yes I would make an unattractive female but my heart beats as that of a woman! Please accept me! May The Universe Make me A Woman!”
