Judge apologizes to inmate seeking transgender surgery →

cheesenippz:

Michelle Kosilek, a convicted murderer, first sued the Massachusetts Department of Correction 11 years ago. Two years later, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled that Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender-identity disorder, but stopped short of ordering surgery to complete Kosilek’s physical transition.

Kosilek sued again in 2005, arguing that the female hormones she was receiving were not enough to relieve her anxiety and depression. Kosilek argued that the surgery was a medical necessity and that the Department of Correction was violating her constitutional rights by refusing to provide the operation.

totossandturn asked: 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?


Answer:

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. Essentially you are a gay man just as you said. 

It is easy to forget  that sex, gender, orientation, and expression are all entirely different and unrelated aspects of who we are as people and no one label can really express all of those nuances.  I like to use the genderbread person  to explain it to people:

Good luck and I hope this helped.
