My SRS account & Background Info

Awww! I Love these little Heart Smilies! There Sooo Cute!

Regardless of your own views on post-op (formerly TS) women, you might like to read the articles below. I suggest starting with the TearS article if you are not familiar with the causes of this congenital condition and its treatment (there is an extract below of the key points). My SRS account may then find a wider context for you to understand it in. Lastly, I have added a link to TSGirlfriend ('m lesbian but it might be helpful) and provided here an FAQ about Post-Op women that I have started. This is because many people (reasonably) seem to be in the dark as to what to expect when dealing with a formerly transsexual woman and have confused ideas about the subject in general.

One of the aims of this site is to show what you may expect from formerly TS Girls. In a nutshell though - post-op women are the same as any other women. We have the same emotional, social, psychological and physical needs as any other woman...

However, if you want to learn more about TS issues then there are some TS information links provided below.

Susanna's SRS Story - Full Version in a single webpage - takes longer to load!

Susanna's SRS Story - Paged - Page 1 of 5

Please be patient when opening this account as it is fairly long and takes a minute to load... (Lots of piccies!). I am in the process of breaking this down into managable pages but this will be a few weeks before it is complete and ready for upload.

For those of you who are interested in the quick intellectual explaination of why transsexuality occurs - here it is in a nutshell...

An Extract from the TearS Article

Every baby of every mammal begins [life] potentially female. During the second month of foetal development, hormones released within the foetus determine whether the baby will remain female or change to male. The tiny body and physical brain are very strongly influenced at this stage, overall sexual identity then being largely fixed. This is why all males have nipples and the scar remaining of their original female sex. 1, 3 The crucial period, when the genetic trigger activates the process to remain female or change to male is over very quickly. This information has been known for over 25 years.

As with any part of foetal development, the process can go wrong. Baby may be born with the body of one sex but the brain and mind of the other, leaving it stranded across (trans) the sexes. Brain research has all but proven this ætiology. 2 In autopsies carried out on ts-born people, all had the brain-sexing of the sex opposite that ascribed to them at birth. (In nature and medicine, if something is dimorphic this means it comes in two distinct types. In this instance, being dimorphic means the layout of parts of the brain, and the prioritising of thoughts, differ between males and females.)
