I’ve gone through some stuff. In my time, I’ve been a daughter and a wife and a girlfriend, but not a mother, no matter how much I tried. I live with another woman now, and these are the best years of my life. I’ve been in loving relationships and abusive ones, and some that should have ended up on a tawdry talk show. I’ve been the wife of a crossdresser and crossdressed myself. I’ve been molested as a child and raped as a young adult, pushed down a flight of stairs and had my finger broken by an ex-boyfriend who still makes a point of popping up in my life from time to time, 23 years after the fact. I’ve been a political activist as a student, and I remain political today. Like I said, I’ve gone through some stuff. And it’s time to make some sense of it all.



  1. I think I just read all of your posts and wow… very powerful. I can’t even… my head…

    I feel the same way I do just after finishing an all-consuming book. Disconnected from reality. Overusing of the ellipsis. It might be that “gay” has a touch of the mystical for me. Is that insensitive? I’m sorry. I’ve never personally met anyone openly or suspiciously gay. Is that even more insensitive? I don’t mean to stick my foot in my mouth. I should stop now. I feel like I’m hypnotized by your story. Yes, that’s the word. Dazzled. Under a spell. Please tell me more.

  2. Interesting blog. A lot of good stuff here.

    Great subtitle for your blog, by the way.

  4. Hi there,

    My name is Alex and I just had a quick question about your blog. Please email me back at your earliest convenience!

    I just wanted to thank you. I read the blog you wrote about being married to a person who identifies as their opposite gender. I have allowed myself to feel like less of a woman for 13 years.
