Profile: Tori

You can call me… Tori.

I identify as… female.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “she,” thank you very much.

I’m attracted to… interesting people.  Ever since my transition began, I’ve realized gender is just one of a laundry list of qualities.  And while I may prefer males, all else being equal, the fact is that all else is SELDOM equal.  And a good heart and a good mind are more important than any particular set of genitals.

Gender hardly even matters to me at all anymore.

When people talk about me, I want them to… know that my personality is blossoming newly for the first time, without the pain of depression and repression.  I’m discovering new things about myself every day, and I hope you will be there for me too as I figure out just who “Tori” really is.

I want people to understand… Every single thing you’re afraid of is much, much less terrible than you think.  Don’t let fear stop you from being true to yourself.  I wasted YEARS down that road, and in the end, for what?  I’m  happier than I dreamed I could be.
