Being transgender, like being gay, tall, short, white, black, male, or female, is another part of the human condition that makes each individual unique, and something over which we have no control. We are who we are in the deepest recesses of our minds, hearts and identities.

I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, No, I wont do it, I wont behave his way anymore. Im lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving, and then you do it.

To be honest, we have no control over whats going on with a movie, much less what people are going to think of it. Your whole life is wound up in it but you dont have control and you have to get used to being on that turbulent plane without trying to fly it. The less you think about all that the better.

I did not want to raise a genetically compromised child. I did not want my children to have to contend with the massive diversion of parental attention, and the consequences of being compelled to care for their brother after I died. I wanted a genetically perfect baby, and because that was something I could control, I chose to end his life.
