My dilemma is that I hate lying to these women. Some of these relationships were accidental in that in testing my ability to pass, I ended up caught in a web not realizing it would work better than expected. So while I have now proven to myself that my combination of genetics and hard work have produced a working version of Joanna, I now almost don't know what to do with her and how far to take her.
Certainly, I do very much value the relationships I have made and want to honour them as much as possible but I am concerned about slipping up one day and having one of them accuse me of malicious deceit. This would be maybe well deserved (I don't know) but I am hoping that at this point the frequency of overlap with these women will stay at a level to keep the status quo manageable.
What a tangled web and yet what a wonderful experience to be accepted as a woman by other women.
This evening a young woman talking on her cell phone opened the door for me as I entered the mall. Upon my thanking her and her replying don't mention it, the person she was speaking to prompted her to reply:"oh I was just talking to a lady". She made my day.
