Want to be a Woman
I Have posted the following on the Gay,Sexual and Bisexual area as that was where I started to find myself a couple of days ago. I have been living as a man for 44 years but have always doubted my sexuality, until now. I am not gay, but could never understand why I feel the way I do. Now I know. Am I Crazy?

Hi, Me again, and YES, I am wearing panties again:-)
Since my last posting on this great site I started a lot of reading on SRS and the results thereof. What was great was the fact that guys from 18 to 50 had undergone SRS and the success rate far outweights the horror stories.
There is a definite route for any guy to take if he feels the way I do. I will not go into detail here, but just search for 'transgender' on Google and you will be amazed!
The most incredible findings was the photos of post SRS women. The grafting of vaginas has come a long way since the 1950's. Furthermore, it will be possible to live my life as a REAL WOMAN, experiencing orgasm, and providing pleasure to a man as well. Granted, the process can take anything from 6-24 months to start fulfilling your role as a woman, but the question I had to answer myself was- Is it what I really want??? To live the rest of my life as a woman... The resounding answer to my questions is YES. I WANT TO BE A WOMAN. I would be able to bring incredible joy and please in a lucky man's life. I would be able to find love as a woman. I would be able to wear female clothing and be able to feel SEXY about myself. I'll be able to make love to a guy the way it is intended to be....INCREDIBLE. I would be able to flirt, be able to be MYSELF.
It is going to be a long road for me - actually, for anyone that considers this, but after what I found while researching SRS, it is going to be worth it.
Currently I am a woman trapped in a man's body. I will be able to become a woman living in a woman's body.

A warm welcome here on our site.

I am proud of you, for the amount of "self-research" you already did. And I can promise you, there is so much more still to find on the internet.
I think the most leberating feeling you can experience is to become one with then real you! The woman inside, she needs to be empowered and grow confidance.
I know of a person, who at the age of 80, in South Africa, followed through with SRS, and I can tell you, let your hart follow your dreams.
Keep on chatting to people on this forum, aswell as on the Gender DynamiX forum, as the more people you can meet, the more ideas you can share! If you go onto the Gender DynamiX forum, you will find a lot of information there, and also if you go to resources, you will find some very helpfull links, specially for South Africa! There is some more private SA web pages, and links wrt SA legal aspects aswell!

Please feel free to post here again!

I don't know in which area you live, in Johannesburg and in Cape Town you can also find support and social groups

Hope to hear from you again
