‘Transgender feelings’ explained following man’s ER visit

steviedebbieTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Previously unaware that he was intersex, Steve Crecelius of Denver, Colorado, lived his life as a male with ‘feminine feelings’ until an ER visit 6 years ago revealed that he wasn’t actually a male at all. It’s Stevie now, and her wife and children have fully embraced the switch to the female gender.

This story was first reported on about a year ago in mainstream media but I’m bringing it up again because of relevance to current issues facing trans people.

Crecelius told ABC News then: “When I was about 6 years old, I started having these feminine feelings, but that was in the ’60s. Wearing my mom’s makeup, I thought I looked pretty.”

About the ER visit she told ABC“The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, ‘Huh, this says you’re a female. It was very liberating. I had spent so much energy after the age of 13 constantly evaluating how people looked at me and acted towards me.”

This is a great example of how fluid gender actually is and the reason we ought not be classifying people by gender, because sometimes, even the person in question doesn’t know for sure.
