Stranger and Stranger

Did you ever feel like a stranger on the planet?

There are many of us out here. We pass as one of you because our survival depends upon it. Learning everything possible about the real creature hidden inside, we maintain the appearance that has served us well all of our lives.
In most cases (in my observation so far) we have spouses, and children, and coworkers who would never suspect us of being anything other that what we have portrayed.

The more I learn about myself, the less I like the bits that have allowed me to pass all of these years. I will have to be very, very careful, since it is my goal to stay a man on this strange planet, even though I am becoming more and more female, and shedding more and more of the baggage. The locals don’t like men who are really female.

Life gets stranger and stranger.


  1. I was just writing a friend this morning. My comment to her was that there are so many of us out there. Those who we least suspect, because we are so good at maintaining the facade.

    Welcome to the world of blogging, Halle.

  2. Thanks Calie. You know I would never have been doing this without encouragement.

    Hugs, Halle

  3. I have a bloke facade too. A bit larger than life, but it does the job. One or two of the people I've come out to have received a hell of a shock, having never suspected a thing.

    As Calie said, welcome to our little corner of the Internet!
