So I woke up to a text this morning from my girlfriend of 4 months. She was telling me for the first time that she has always felt like she should have been a boy. That she would be more comfortable as one and everything.
Let's get something straight (or rather, anything but), I have absolutely nothing against people who are transsexual or transgendered. In fact I think that those people are very brave and I have a great respect for them. But I have to admit that having my own girlfriend admit something to me that sounds like she is coming out as transsexual is a little more than surprising. I would love her no matter what she identifies herself as but still: surprising to say the least.
But when I asked her if she has ever considered herself to be transsexual it turns out that she had never even heard of that before.
So I guess I'm asking for help from anybody out there: any ideas? She's just as confused as I am, I suppose we just need some ideas or speculations.
