Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Alistair (25) and Woogle (2)
Hey my Wikialytes and Afterthoughts alike!

Guess what?

I’m a man!

Well, that is, over this past year I came out as transgender.

So you guys called it.

I am planning on beginning hormone replacement therapy in the next couple of months.

Oh I had a baby a couple years ago.
He’s cool. 

So that’s your Amy update!!!

Okay, okay I guess I should say more:

As you well know, I have been struggling with my identity as a human over the decade. Every box I placed myself into as a female felt wrong. I wasn’t a bisexual woman even though I was attracted to both genders. I was too cock hungry to be a lesbian woman. I was too into women to be a straight woman tomboy. As you knew me, I would introduce myself as genderqueer or I wouldn’t introduce myself and I would get defensive if anyone tried to guess my gender based off my writing. Or I would select my gender based off of rhetorical advantage in an argument.

After three (unfortunately very literal) near-death experiences in less than the past three years, a mirror of life raised itself to my face and realization struck me. 

I hate California Nazis.

There’s more to it than that and if it pleases my three loyal followers, I may get into it at a later date. 

I feel most secure and authentic with myself identifying as a gay man.

Preferred name/pronouns:
RL: Alistair he/his/him
SL: Amy he/she/ze/don’t care
