The life I would’ve lived isn’t worth living in To put it simply, I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body, and I’ve felt that way ever since I was 4. I never knew there was a word for that feeling, nor was it possible for a boy to become a girl, so I never told anyone and I just continued to do traditionally ‘boyish’ things to try to fit in.

In hindsight I suppose I should have probably had a clue when he would no longer use the bathrooms at school or any other public place. Or when he was so distraught about bathing suits, bra’s and even how he looked in a tank top. He’s always preferred wearing really baggy clothing even when all the other ‘girls’ in his class were wearing skinny jeans and revealing tops.
Although, I must admit I am glad that was never an issue. But honestly, having my almost 16 year old bi-sexual daughter come out as a 16 year old bi-sexual boy wasn’t really as mind-blowing as I would have thought. Yes, for a minute I was a little perplexed, mostly because I thought I truly knew him. I knew he was gay long before he told me. Shouldn’t I have known this as well? Regardless, I accepted it, tossed in a few jokes for good measure and moved on with our regular banter.

First, consider this story from Germany, which begins with this mind-bending sentence: A woman does not have sperm, and a woman cannot father a child. And if the person has sperm and fathers the child, then that person cannot be the child’s mother.
In this case, the man, who now identifies as a woman, wanted to be listed as the mother of his child, which was born to his female partner. So, this man fathers a child with his female partner using previously frozen sperm , but since he now identifies as a woman obviously, a lesbian woman, since his partner is female , he wants to be registered as the baby’s mother.

Here, five Torontonians tell their stories Image: Sports became my escape. I started playing baseball when I was eight and continued through my teens.
