Well I'm genetically XXY. I've always since my first memories and long before I found out about being XXY thought that I was female. Well my family considers me just a regular transsexual because everything they have looked up about XXY or Klinefelter's says that they are males and they should take testosterone, not estrogen. They are very religious and think a transsexual is the ultimate evil and sexual deviant. It doesn't help that I'm also lesbian. I was wondering if anyone knew about any sites, books, videos, etc. that was about XXY MTFs. I find it interesting anyways but also if I found enough information to show that I'm not the only one going female and any research could only help my situation. There probably isn't much research but oh well.

I remember reading a web page last year saying that doctors are now starting to classify XXY in two categories. They aren't just being looked at as males with an extra X but instead as females with a Y. I can't find it again though. The only video I have found about someone XXY transitioning was this:

So if anyone can share anything that would be great.

Thanks!

I have seen that on a site - but I don't recall where. Have you looked through the intersexed sites? They can tend to be elitist (like some transsexuals) and not count anyone without true organ duality. But it might be worth a try.

Just a thought

Like what sites? I've just tried typing variations of XXY, intersex and transsexual in search engines but not much comes up.

I never really viewed being IS as making not a regular transsexual. IS or not we go through the exact same stuff that non IS transseuxals go through. It's all the same.

You're XXY

That's 2 to 1.

Genetically female by a margin.

Hi Honey,

Me too. XXY MTF. Me? I'm a female born with an extraneous chromosome as far as anyone I know or come into contact with is concerned. I wrote a very long description of my life and feelings, and handed them out to family and friends so they could gain a fairly good understanding of who and what I am. If you want to, I can send you a copy. I found it really helpful ... as in very, very few people see me as anything other than a woman now, and they have a better understanding of intersex issues.

Be well,

Paula.

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."

      Hi ,  thanks for the warm welcome  
    • ElissaMtF
      Hi Gwen, thanks for the warm welcome. I do have a balanced life but it’s especially because it helps me to get through the dysphoric days. I try to work a lot and do relaxing things to be confronted less with the dysphoria.   I love Godiva chocolate. Lindt chocolate from Switzerland is not bad either but I prefer my Belgian chocolates. We have a Leonidas on every corner here. Do you have Leonidas chocolate in the USA?

      Thanks so much. Your message feels very welcoming  I don’t have a lot of  supportive people so thanks for offering me a place to share my feelings.

      AWW, I love that question, so sweet my dog is called “ Noisette “ which is French for “ walnut / nut “ . He is 4 years old, kinda small but very fat. His race is a mix of a mops and a bulldog.  I love him. He can be grumpy but he’s lovely

      The whole issue was not about the ability of trans to serve just like its not about the ability of immigrants to do good work. It is about Trump appeasing his base so that he can stay in power as long as possible so he can keep passing the things he really cares about and those are the things that make his money. It's a shame there are so many bigots in this country that is making it possible.

      Very well put. The journey for many is hard and long. Hopefully as time goes by it becomes easier for many.

      I would add Transgender Date to the list. While I am MTF the site does a good job of catering to everyone. They do a great job of breaking down the identities instead of just grouping everyone together. There is a vast community there so finding someone there is definitely a good chance of finding someone. There is also a lot of discussion on the site which is focused more on just dating. That may provide a good outlet for your friend as well.
