Jennifer Seeley wrote the Transgender Companion, which claims that it is the complete guide to becoming the woman you want to be. Intrigued by this, I recently bought and read through the transgender companion.
Jennifer is a non-op, male to female transsexual, and unfortunately spends most of the time justifying her decision not to go through with sex reassignment surgery. Her approach in the book goes overboard in trying not to offend the reader by prefacing almost every opinion she puts forth with words like “this is only my opinion and it’s okay if you think otherwise”. After reading this for the tenth time I started to wonder if she was trying to communicate a hidden message – perhaps she believes there is something wrong with alternate views, and in an effort to appear welcoming she over emphasizes her openness?
The information about transitioning and presenting yourself more convincingly as a woman is okay, but nothing you couldn’t find searching the Internet for a weekend.
The most helpful part of the book was Jennifer’s emphasis on self acceptance and not overly focusing on any one part of your body that you don’t like. Whether it’s your height or broad shoulders, or something else that communicates your masculinity.
P.S. If you’re looking for a crossdressing guide worth reading go here. Learn how to cross dress and pass as a woman.
