    She may not have acknowledged it to herself, even into adulthood. She could have been settled into the job before the recognition that explained all the discomfort in her life.

    There are many radically different transgender experiences but if that was hers then it would fit a known pattern.

    Anyone considering a dog for personal safety should treat that decision as seriously as they would buying a gun.

      be accepted as a candidate for ordination as a deacon or priest in the Episcopal Church? We are talking about heavy psych evals and heavy interviews. It is a VERY difficult process. She knew somewhere along the line. She should have shared her journey.

        Is it the sort of interviewing that would require a mention of gender dysphoria? In particular, of the repressed kind? I don't know whether that was her situation of course.
