Inauspicious Day announcement
I have decided to counteract the ignorant and hateful attitudes being formally placed in positions of authority today by going public about my gender status.
(Do not adjust your sets; there is no cause for alarm; keep calm and carry on; the south tower is secure.)
The short version is that I have always preferred a female identity, though I suppressed this idea for most of my life because I thought it was logically impossible.
It makes me happy to be addressed and thought of as female, so please do that if you are willing and able – but I will not take offense to anyone who does otherwise, whether deliberately or accidentally.
I won't be making any dramatic changes to my appearance; I have been on HRT since mid-July, so you've already seen how that's going.
There is much more information at http://woozalia.com/wiki/Me/transition , but please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. It is a great relief to be able to discuss this openly after so many years!
