MI Republican Introduces Anti-Trans Prisoner Bill →
Representative Hooker’s bill is ill-conceived and is yet another attack on the gay and transgender population of Michigan by this Legislature. To the best of my knowledge, only one other state — Wisconsin — has ever passed such a bill and the federal courts struck it down as unconstitutional. Lawmakers should not be in the business of legislating medical care and should not be substituting its judgment for that of the medical profession in such matters. For Representative Hooker to dance to the tune played by Mr. Glenn, the head of an organization labeled as a hate group by the Southern Law Poverty Center is the very antithesis of the “common-sense” he purports to be exercising. I extend an offer to Mr. Hooker to meet with me and discuss this issue in greater detail.”
I'm girl, but I still like guys, but I want to be a guy. So technically I'm a gay guy stuck in a girl's body. What's the term for this, if there is one?
As humans we attempt to use labels to explain the world around us. It is difficult to assign anyone a label if they do not first believe it to be true in their own hearts and minds. With that being said, it appears that you have a ftm trans* identity meaning then your gender is male even though your sex remains female. Who you are attracted to has nothing to do with your gender.

Good luck and I hope this helped.
German teenager Kim Petras has become the world’s youngest operated transsexual after undergoing a surgery at the age of just 16. The procedure – carried out in secret and paid for by the German health service – was authorised after psychologists confirmed that she was “without doubt a girl in a boy’s body”. It is the world’s youngest ever full sex change operation and Kim had been undergoing hormone therapy since the age of 12.
Kim overcame years of taunts and bullying to achieve her dream of becoming a girl and has begun a modelling career and launched a CD.
Kim, who is now studying fashion design, began calling herself a girl when she was just two years old.

For Transgender Triathlete, a Top Finish in New York Is Secondary
After finishing in Central Park on Sunday, participants in the New York City Triathlon will huddle around the results pages, analyzing split times and category rankings.
Chris Mosier, 31, will not be among them.
Mosier is transgendered and will be competing in the triathlon for the first time as a man. In 2009, he completed the 1.1-mile swim, 25-mile bike and 6.1-mile run in 2 hours 39 minutes, good enough for 27th place in the women’s 25-29 category. Now racing in the men’s 30-34 field, one of the most competitive in the race, Mosier says he will be lucky to finish in the middle of the pack. Instead of focusing on results, Mosier said, he just wants to enjoy racing his peers
