    Thanks for writing an honest and courageous account of your journey so far. It's never easy being "different" in any way, and the restricted and restricting gender roles of the past still crush many who can't figure out how to fight back, or how to do more than simply survive their school years.

    Then, it takes a few decades to reconstruct who we really are from the barricades we spent years building around us... seems like we need better ways of growing up, doesn't it?

      It has taken me to my 50's to really gain a full sense of myself again, which has contributed to my ability to finally write, something I've wanted to do all my life!
