You can call me… Bill or Mina will do for me. Presently, I am in the middle of defining myself.
I identify as… gender neutral. I have been raised to think of myself as male, but the truth is a great deal more complicated.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I will go with what is used, presently it isn’t as important as just talking.
I’m attracted to… men.
When people talk about me, I want them to… see me as the caring, compassionate, emphatic person I try to be.
I want people to understand… I am doing the best to get through from one day to the next. I am as clueless as everyone else. And frequently more scared than you about being me.
I am 56. I have blue eyes. Up until August of 2010, I was relatively content living life as a gay male. That changed because I had my prostate removed, which essentially neutered me. It also has made me review my gender identity. Because while I am still physically male, I no longer am really male for all physical purposes. Not that I ever really was. But when my equipment was functioning, I could at least fake it. Now, I am for all purposes a female with testicles, and a penis. At least that is how I see it from my viewpoint. The equipment is there, but no longer has a reason for existing as it no longer does anything.
