  1. I am 86. When I was a (male) child, about 6, 7, 8 or so, I wondered, dreamed, obsessed, about being a girl. In private (when alone, or in bed at night) I pretended to be a girl. But in Australia in the 1940s and 1950s, physical transitioning or even hormone therapy was not possible. I simply do not know what I might have done if it had been as available and as accepted as it is now (though of course it is only accepted by some of us). I have always remained “straight”, have only ever had relationships with women, but there has always been that sadness (in that I have always wished that I had been born female).
