I voted yes, I am, with more than much more than 50% confidence but significantly less than 100%. If things had been different in an increasingly distant past, I would have at the least scheduled appointments with a gender friendly therapist and begun to share my desires (there since at least 4 or 5, and only growing over time) as well as explore my options.
But this all assumes that something close to what’s available today would also have been reasonably available in the 60’s…in reality it wasn’t, and while some transgendered people might have had the access, wherewithal and desire to keep searching and eventually finding the resources necessary, too many of us didn’t or couldn’t. So I looked at what options were available and made choices, from then until such a time when while the feelings and desires have never changed, what I believe the person I should be for the present and future have.
So I dress when I can, put down my feelings in writings, and dream. Regrets? Like Frank, a few, but not enough as time goes on to let, for me anyway, depression set in, which I believe it so easily could do.
