I’m different, and everybody knows it. Maybe if I had a dress like Vicky’s* dress, then maybe I’d be like the other girls. ” “Yeah, I guess. It’s plain enough, and she looks like a girl when she wears it. ” “Well, sure you can, honey. But don’t you worry. You’re perfectly normal. You’re just a late-bloomer. ” Did she say handsome because she knew I’d rather be handsome than pretty? That did appeal to me, it was true, but there was something about the late-bloomer phrase that hurt me. She seemed to be saying there really was something wrong with me.

As I talked it over with Samantha, she said she wanted me to be happy and that she would try to stay with me, which I experienced as a great relief. I found that I did have the courage to risk the unknown and learn how to actualize myself. I felt confident she would continue to appreciate me. I believed that as I had seen Michael become happier with himself, surely Samantha would see the same kind of improvement in me. By making this ultimate investment in myself, I knew I could finally grow up. I felt supported and ready to embark on a miraculous journey.

No matter how comfortable I felt with myself, the fact remained that I never knew when people around me would threaten or challenge me because they didn’t think I was acceptable. Riding on BART, the Bay Area’s version of the subway, a man stared at me from across the aisle and then began yelling, “What is that? That’s a woman! ” Terrified, I got off at the next stop. If I had been a woman, I might have reacted differently. I began to struggle consciously with what I called the lie in my existence: if people perceived me as male, I had to worry about whether they might find out that I had a female body, and then would feel betrayed or deceived and entitled to punish me for it.
