Follow the Bouncing Gender Balls

No silly's not those balls! By now you have probably seen the story of the ABC News guy (Ennis) who decided he wanted to be a girl and then made up all kinds of crazy stories of why he was wrong and rejoined the male camp.
He is not alone, not long ago I viewed part of a YouTube video which included a segment on "Walt" who went through SRS, lived as a woman and decided he was wrong and rejoined the world as a guy.

I believe all of this is good.  Sure, we are always going to have the naysayers who point to Walt or Ennis as proof any gender change is wrong, immoral or whatever. On the other hand we transgender folks know this is not a decision to be taken lightly. These two guys were proof of it!

So much of a life can be enriched or destroyed by the gender transition process it's scary- or should be. You Cyrsti's Condo's regulars know one of my main "soapbox" preaching points is you damn well better get out in the world and socialize yourself as a woman to the best of your ability. Before you decide.  More than likely the feminine life is not entirely the "walk in the park"  you thought it would be. Ask any genetic or fully transitioned trans woman.

The moral to the story is , if you are similar to me in the past and think your cross dressing may be a symptom of something deeper, you need to do all the research you can on it, up to and including living it. At that point, no matter what anyone says, the door should be open for you to come back. Even for Ennis and Walt..."let em live."
