    Subject: Re: I really relate to the movie!
    Date: Mar 27, 2004
    Sender: BePrevious | Next

    Hi,

    I really related to the movie too, but I didn't relate with being a TS because I'm not and I'm bi-gendered, not bi-sexual.

    I was able to replace the man in the story with a female who accepts and promotes the changes I'd like to have. This happens way more than people realize.

    I even took the medication she took in the movie when she moves in with the male lead. Her feelings when on it were very similar to mine. In the end I made the same decisions she made too. (I don't want to ruin the ending)

    Anyway, it was a great movie and I think you'll enjoy it even if you just want to watch a good movie.

    I really relate to the movie!

    Once upon a time, I was in a similiar situation like the character, Fernanda, in the movie "Princesa". It's hard being a transgender person of male to female transexual because inside you feel that you are a women but in reality, you can never truly achieve the reality of being a biological woman, and "straight" men will desert you once they discover you are not a biological female. However, I have come to term with my life and I'm now happily in a relationship with a wonderful, bisexual man.
