People ask me when I first knew I was female. Would you believe me if I told you that I don't know if I've ever known, since I don't really know what a woman is, other than a concept that exists outside me - still, I know that I have felt like one, a woman I mean, yet the only way I first knew was from males? Will you suspend prejudgment long enough to entertain the possibility that gender can be so relative?

I'm still learning about transgenderism and appreciate Zoe's effort to illuminate the issues. She sounds so sad, though; I do hope she finds things to be cheerful about.
Zoe, first and foremost I enjoyed listening ! I too am a person who is more of a female than a male. Yet society places so much importance on one or the other. I began my transition two years ago to satisfy the binary world and myself. I am preop looking to be post op in the next year. I really haven't even thought about the sexual element to all of this. I am now really more concerned about my well being and adjusting to what society deems normal. I personally do not like labels I prefer to say I identify as a woman nothing else. The act of concentrating on my genitalia to define who I am is actually ridiculous if you ask me.
