My name is Emma. I am:
aunt, big sister, daughter, different, female-identified, femme-ish, friend, gay-curious, gender dysphoric, human, in transition, intelligent, introvert, kinky, leopard, little sister, MTF, male-assigned, miss, misunderstood, myself, none of the above,
none of your business, not sure of others, oblivious, orphan, out-ish,
quiet, readable, shy, transfemale, transwoman, wannabe.
Random thought of the day - I've realised I like geeks but I'm not one myself.
I am shy, funny, and kind.
Oh, and my height. I'm quite tall.
Though not as tall as some people might think.
I have a fairly unsophisticated taste in books - Terry Pratchett, JK Rowling, Philip Pullman, Louise Rennison and have just been reading Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga books.

And I'm a transsexual woman. (I used to say "I'll fess up, I'm a transsexual woman" but that makes it sound like something for which I should feel guilty, and I certainly don't.) If you think that means 'man in a dress' you can go away now, please.
