I’ve been told many times that people thought I was a woman when they heard me speaking on the phone. I always thought I sounded like a man. Maybe that’s part of being intersex? I once learned that if you put your open hands in front of your ears but close to the skull,(like donkey ears) and then speak, you will hear what others hear as your true voice. I also do know that my larynx, trachea and epiglottis are all sort of misaligned and it’s easy for me to choke. When I have an operation, the anesthesiologists have difficulty putting the tube in. The people that I know that have mastered the feminine voice have told me that it’s like singing all the time. That seems similar to what others here have mentioned also.
Thanks Kerri for this good question and good luck. Marg
