Article: Bee Sting Prompts Gender Change

Yes, you read it right. It's a new one on me, but I suppose anything is possible. Judge for yourself.

Easy does it ladies-- it does mention un-diagnosed Klinefelters Syndrome which is an Intersexed condition. I suspect the Klinefelters as the real cause, but I think some of our British cousins here have panned the Daily Mail as being a way out news rag.

I can definitely agree on that. The Daily Mail is *not* popular among the trans community over here, and I've even heard of it being referred to as The Daily Fail. They frequently belittle trans people in their articles with scant regard to pronouns, or respect for that matter. I suppose the sting might have triggered some kind of hormonal event which in turn might have triggered other things that would lead to someone identifying as trans, but I am highly skeptical. Don't believe everything you read, folks!

I honestly don't know how much of the story is true. It could all be totally legit.

My problem is that this story is being played up big in the usual media circus places as an oddity, and I find it vaguely insulting. Without coming out and saying so directly, they are showcasing another "curiosity," like the transman who gave birth, and leading the cisgen world to think that we're all a bit daffy in some way. I'm sure Jay Leno's monologue is the next place this will turn up. :(

This woman and her wife and two kids were on Anderson Cooper this past week. Chloe (transwoman) clearly stated that she always felt feminine -- probably like most of us, we repressed so much and so often that we just didn't have a name to mark the feelings, but it was always there. From what I gathered, the bee sting did somehow lead to Chloe discovering her XXY syndrome (Klinefelter's). While it is most unusual for an XXY male to identify as female (most do in fact ID as male), it is not impossible (obviously). Knowing she is intersex just provided the "proof" we all hope and long for regarding validating our feelings. And I think that's what enabled Chloe to finally make that mental jump and choose to transition. [As a side note, if a bee sting or any kind of chemical reaction could (post birth) change one's sexual/gender identity, then I can see how transition would no longer be necessary -- just transition the brain. I've wondered if strokes or anything else can actually change someone's gender identity -- I'm not talking mannerisms or behaviors, but ID. Would be interesting]

Unfortunately, I missed the first few minutes of the show where they discussed the bee sting, so I don't know the details of how that led, medically speaking, to her finding out she had Kinefelter's. At any rate, the show should be on Youtube...check it out. It was interesting.

I have no clue why they keep bringing them out? This happened in 2004, she's all over FB has a blog and isn't stealth. The media is more than happy to exploit someone who seems to be begging to be exploited.

Bee sting is almost a punch line in some circles when talking of possible TS links and causes.

      I like trucks too.  I've always driven Dodge's.  I still have my 1989 Dodge D350 one ton dually.  It was primarily used as a race car hauler and I had a slide in camper on it for a while for use at the track.  I've hauled everything in this truck and it never fails to make me smile.  I always get comments about it as it's an "old school" style with bolt on fender extensions.     Jani

      Hello all    I’m half way into my 8th month of HRT I would say the explosive exuberance has subsided although I am still feeling wonderful about this journey. I’m kind of settling in with my new life and acceptance of who I am very comfortably. My wife is a little bit better as it all becomes more familiar. It’s one day at a time for me and so far they have added up nicely .    All the best to everyone on their own journey                   Sharon Aml

      Welcome Chris.  It sounds like your moving out from under of your past.  My journey was in many ways similar to yours.  I'm glad you've joined us here.  This site has helped me especially as i learned i wasn't alone.  Sharing with others eased some of the difficulties i had faced and that continue to face me as a trans* person.  I must add that i love to share my "triumphs" as well.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Elissa! Welcome to Transpulse! My mom  took about a year to come around (sort of), my dad took about 3 months. Initially they were very hostile to it. I kept in touch, and basically showed them it was not the end of the world and it was what was best  for me.   Hugs, Marcie   .

      I didn't get to make it to this years march as the sap is flowing on the farm.  I certainly enjoyed the march last year.  Here is a picture from that event. what a great group of women.  I got there early and had a great time simply relating to others.                 Hugs,   Charlize
