About Me

It has been brought to my attention that I have been keeping some rather important bits of information about myself from you all.

I don't actually think it's that important for everyone to know. But I guess I'm a little too close to it all to know. So I have decided to give you all some more details about who I am.

I am a twenty something living in Australia. I wasn't born here because my mum, who was born here, was living overseas at the time. But I've lived here almost my whole life and I love this country (most of the time).

I am also only attracted to women. I don't know why this is important to you, but apparently it is. I have never been attracted to men. And I can be sure, because, I am.

Lastly, and I suppose, most importantly. I have XY chromosomes. Meaning I was born male, which makes me transsexual (pre-op).

I didn't think it was important to say on here. I see myself as a woman and I live as a woman. And most everyone that sees me as I go about my business day to day see me that way too, including the ones that know.

I was trying to live "stealth" which basically means I don't want every man and his dog knowing I used to be a man. Which is also a good reason to keep as much of this info to myself.

Another reason I didn't want to mention this on here is. I don't want to attract "tranny chasers". I have nothing against them but I'm not interested in helping people satisfy this fetish. It can get a little scary at times with some people and my safety is pretty important to me.

I am sorry if anyone feels I should have divulged this information earlier but I honestly didn't think it was important.

PS. I wrote this a little while ago and realized it is important to tell you all. It's mostly important for me. Because; I was scared to press "publish". I don't know why. I'm not ashamed of who I am.

Please, if you don't like who I am, instead of being mean and judgemental, just don't read this blog.

If anyone does have questions though I will try and answer them. But I've found I'm not very "typical" in my experiences. So anything I say is just my opinion.


  1. I'm so glad you shared this and I think you brave to do so. I have something I have always wanted to ask, though.
    Where do you stand on your sexuality? As in, someone who lives as a woman and likes soley women is called a lesbian, someone who lives as a man and likes soley men is called gay, you see yourself as having an identity or a label in this respect? Or do you think it all totally beside the point?
    I'm sorry if the answer is really obvious. I've just always wanted to know.

  2. Hi Lucy;

    First of all. I don't think there is such a thing as silly or obvious questions. If you want to know something, the best way to find out is to ask questions. How else are you supposed to know?

    To answer your question; I identify as lesbian. It's easy for me. I identify as a woman and I'm attracted to women. So in my mind, it's no different for me than a genetic woman, beside the chromosome malfunction.

    For some transgendered people though, I've found it's beside the point. And they chose to reject any label. Including any gender or sexual reference. I find it is an individual thing.

    Thank you for your support, it means a lot to me. And sorry if I have made it more confusing for you.

  4. Thank you Ashley;
    I feel the same about you!

    It really does help to have encouragement and support...even from strangers (maybe especially from strangers?!)

    p.s. if my comment on your blog is overly weird, I blame insomnia!
