Zitat des Tages – Pauline Park

“I reject the assumption that the presence or absence of the penis determines my status as a man or as a woman. While cross-dressers often find me too transsexual to elate to because I live full-time as a woman, transsexuals find me puzzling because I have not pursued hormone therapy or sex reasignment surgery. Even within the transgender community, I find myself in between.”
