Default I'm back, and I'm a different gender now.

Hey kids.

I don't really expect anyone to remember me, because I never came here all that frequently, but I guess I joined in 2006, and I know I used to at least come in to say a few words every few months. I even started this game one time called A Matter of Thirds that sort of caught on here. Anyhow, I was a boy back then, and this was something that caused me a lot of anxiety the more I thought about it. So in August I decided to do something about it, and now I'm a girl.

Those of you who are familiar with how this works will know that a gender transition does not happen overnight, or even in a single month. Where I am right now, I present as and am known as female in about 95% of my world. I feel a freedom to exist now that I had never known before. I'm ready to put the gender issues behind me and just get on with being the best person I can possibly be. So to anyone else out there who is fighting your own gender issues, my message is that your dreams are possible. And to everyone else, please be nice to us.

Thank you.

What Melian said!

Also, I don't think we ever did solve all of your 'matter of thirds' puzzles!

Thanks everyone.

And yes, Tad, there were still some unfinished puzzles. No one ever got 'club, land, stone' as I recall. One of these days I'll go make some more and fun times can be had by a small minority.

I'm new so I don't remember you from before, but congrats on your transition! I'm glad it's working out for you so well. And if I may say so, you're looking rather cute

I remember you, and I'm about two and a half months away from my own surgery (and climbing he walls with anticipation).
