A nice story on a subject . . .

<p>on which most of the stories are horrifying, voyeuristic, designed to convey the impression that the person isn't "really" what they became, and/or full of embarrassing cliches and stereotypes.</p>

<p>I don't like it when stories like this print "before" photos (even though I know that's what people supposedly want to see), but at least this one was just a baby picture. And I appreciate that the former name mentioned was not Amy's actual former name. I kind of regret consenting to the one article about me that appeared around the time of my transition five years ago, and to making an appearance in the one book that talks about me, but at least I insisted on using a pseudonymous former name as well (and, in fact, didn't use a surname at all).</p>

<p>Anyway, good for her.</p>

<p>PS: In case anyone's wondering, the article I'm talking about isn't available online anymore. And I wouldn't provide the link even if it were!</p>

<p>Nice article, Donna. Thanks for posting.</p>

<p>That's a fantastic article. It's so good to see happy endings, where people are really able to come into their own and blossom into people that they feel comfortable being. I can't imagine anything worse than feeling like you didn't even belong in your own skin.</p>

<p>A Lovely story about the power of friendship! tHANKS for posting it!</p>

<p>Lovely article. My sense is that among the young gender and sexual identity is becoming a non-issue. My d was telling me about a classmate of hers who entered college as a woman and will graduate as a man. And the only reason she brought it up was because she was filling me in on who her freshman roommate was dating.</p>
