Late Transitions

Some people transition later in life.  They may not realize they're trans* -- they almost always know something  is wrong early on, but may not understand what.  Or they may know exactly what's going on, but they've been told they "have to be" their assigned sex so they try to until they can't sustain the lie any longer.

This is precisely the kind of thing that happened to Hyperspaceman -- living en femme, getting married, getting pregnant, having a daughter, and eventually realizing that this was not working.  Thus began the transition to male.  He is much happier now.  But his daughter is pretty much the only relative still speaking to him. 0_o
