"You start to realize that if you don't do something that you are wondering about now, you will never have a chance. It's a very common theme among all the girls I've met who start doing this in their middle age.
Today, I think the younger people are starting a lot more to play with their gender, but that's the generation after me. Among the t-girls that I know, every single one except for me, had thoughts about this when they were a child - either tried on their sister's clothes or mother's clothes, did something for Halloween or whatever, really liked it, thought about it again when they were a teenager, but never really could do it or whatever, for the guilt or pressure, until the middle age. Me, I'm the only one who has never thought, for one second, about doing this my entire life before I actually started doing it at this age." - Claire Black (Janie)
