Question, answered. Sort of.

July 2004. I‘d been temping in a Wells Fargo office for a couple of weeks. A co-worker wanted to be sure she had my name correct:

Office worker: So you’re Chris, right?

Me: So far. They haven’t approved my transition, so I’m not yet Christina.

Office worker (her eyes wide): Really?

On a sort of related note, is it wrong that I’d like to refer to a certain male-to-female transgendered person I’m aware of as “the most attractive former possessor of man-parts I know”?

(Note to readers! I’m doing these quick entries ’cause I’m writing a really long piece about the wedding and that’s taking a while. Signed, Chris “definitely a male” Walsh)
