    I'm having a difficult time understanding the identified gender side of it.

    From what you're saying, it's entirely possible to be a biological male who's attracted to women, but from a mental/emotional standpoint considers himself to be a woman.

    There's an old straight male joke, "I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body." So you're saying such a thing is quite literally possible?

    I haven't ever considered my own self-perceived gender. I've just always known I'm a male who's attracted to females. My first crush was Kindergarden, a girl named Jenny Rankey (I couldn't be misspelling her last name). I've also always been interested in stereotypical "man" things, like cars and sports. And nerd things like chess and numismatics.

    I guess I just have a hard time getting the gender identity thing. Sexual attraction I recognize, so I've always known I'm straight. As for gender, I've always had a male body and there's never been a question of should or shouldn't. It just is.
