About the Author

I was born and raised near Montreal, Quebec, midway through the baby-boom, the second of three daughters. (How I got the middle name Xavier is a story in itself.)
I started out with a disability, and eventually became a differently-abled person. I have learned in my life that with the three H's, Hope, Humor, and Humility, life offers more than enough rewards.
The branches of a tree grow upward and outward, yet in life, our branches can all come back together again in a great knot, and a new tree begins growing upwards - awkward picture, isn't it? Recently I have found tranquility, love, and inspiration, and so it's as though life is beginning all over again. I hope to share my optimistic disposition with my readers; to know your limits, yet hope and strive for your dreams, is what brings out our truest humanity.

I now share a Twitter account with my old ex, Robert E Vonne - check out our tweets. @robinrobin55

Peace and cheers!

I'd like to request something of you, before I start. Please, do not judge immediately based on your preconceptions. Don't tell me I'm an abomination just because you've been told that my ideas are wrong, think for yourself. Thank you. <p> Also, if you know me by another name, please do not reveal it here. <p> My name is Ali. I'm an average high school student. I'm sixteen years old, and I think of myself as an average teenage girl. Except for one thing. <br> I have a you-know-what down there. I was born male. <p> The odd thing is I didn't realize I was gender-curious until two years ago. Many people know from a young age that they are in the wrong body. I was always interested in transformations, like the Animorphs series, and I sometimes wondered what it would be like to be a girl. That was normal for kids, though. <p> What brought me to my senses was when I started having dreams where I was a girl. The dreams persisted and I looked it up, I started researching gender identity disorder. The symptoms matched up and I realized that maybe it was true, maybe I was supposed to be a girl. <p> I told some of my most trusted friends about it, and they agreed that I needed to tell my mom. It was difficult, but I eventually sent her a message. I'd like to thank Sara Bereilles (I think that's how to spell her name) for her song Brave, because without it, I would never have been able to tell anyone about how I felt. <p> My mom accepted me, but I realized I would have to make changes myself. I shave my legs every month, I wear her clothes from time to time (only after everyone is asleep of course), I research hormone replacement therapy, se<_>xu<_>al reassignment surgery, facial feminization surgery, laryncheal surgery. <p> I've chosen my path now. This summer, I'm telling the rest of the world who I really am. Next school year, I'll start wearing girl's clothes to school. My goal is to go to Prom my senior year. In a dress. <p> At the beginning of all this, I wanted to start on hormones right away, then have srs as soon as I turned 18. But now, I've realized that I don't mind having the wrong organs, as long as I know that one day, they'll be set right. I might start taking testosterone blockers to stop the damage, but I started puberty already. Hormones won't reverse the damage that's been done, like my height, broad shoulders, and body hair. What they can do is move fat where it belongs, my hips and chest. My face may be masculine, but that's what ffs is for. And electrolysis can get rid of my body hair. <p> So what do I want you to get from all this? Well, maybe I just wanted people to know that people like me exist. But maybe it's because I want you to know how much of a blessing nook has been for me. I can be a girl whenever I want to. I can have violet eyes, and black hair with pink streaks, and wear any dress I can imagine, and be friends with whoever I like, and act like the happy, outgoing girl I am, because that's how people see me here. <br> You have something truly fantastic, rpers of nook world. I hope you realize that. ^AliCat^
