The transgender part wouldn't bother me. The leaving her wife part would. I don't understand people who marry when they know they're not marrying the right gender. To me that's using someone else to make yourself look normal.

I have a brother in law who did this. He always knew he was gay. He told my sister in law after 17 years of marriage and 3 kids who ended up put through hell. I don't care that he's gay but I do care that he used my sister in law like that. That's a rotten thing to do. He should never have married her in the first place.

Of course he SHOULDN'T have done it, but I am sympathetic to how this kind of thing happens. He probably wanted so badly to be "normal" and might have even believed at the time that he could become straight if he just tried hard enough. Sad all the way around though.

Okay, folks I'm back.

Time to be honest with you all. The truth is I am the transgendered one. Yes, that is correct. I used to be a man but recently had my you-know-whats taken off and pushed back inside me to make me a woman. I take a load of hormones, too. And I have breast implants. Recently I moved in with a roommate (yes, it was me all along) and I haven't told her. She has questioned my size 11 shoes, but that's not all that unusual.

Why should I tell the b**tch? Hell, I'm as much of a woman as she is. Sure, I don't have ovaries or fallopian tubes or even a womb, but who cares about that fluffy stuffing stuff. What matters is that all my outer parts resemble a woman. A little bit of lipstick and hairspray and I am more woman than any woman I know. I have dated and slept with several men who had no idea. And what business is it of anyone's anyway? Screw them.

But what really warms my heart and makes me so happy is all the love and support that I've witness here in this thread. Thank you, all of you, for understanding and nonjudgmental acceptance.

Love and Kisses,

Woofie (the pink dog)
