1) there is no link between crossdressers and transsexuals
2) all crossdressers are perverts
3) if you don't transition early you're not a true transsexual
4) late transitioners are men without penises or testicles
These axioms are not espoused by calie (nor by yours truly) and it's facile to categorize all trans people into set categories for the sake of branding. I also greatly admire her altruism as it is clearly he'll for her not to have succumbed to the temptation to follow her needs. Whether she has done the right thing or not is not for me to say. This road is hard enough for each of us to travel and I would not presume to offer advice on that front.
An interesting read nonetheless and very inspiring.
