For most transgenders, having the body and gender they want is more than enough, the pinnacle of their desires. But for Lea Membrey, this is not the end of it. The 20-year old from Auckland, New Zealand went to a sperm bank three times to store her own (this was done before she transitioned) so that she can father her own child when it becomes possible to have biological children of her own!
Lea started transitioning in July 2015 after feeling “disconnected” from her original male body. She has felt like that ever since she was a boy. She has been bullied and abused during her school years for being gay, a label that she’s not really comfortable with.
It was when she met other transgender women that she became serious with transitioning.
She has already spent thousands of dollars for procedures such as breast implants, botox, lip fillers, and laser hair removal.
“Although I don’t want children anytime soon I do want them to be naturally mine. I think it is incredible to know I can still have a baby that is half my DNA.
“I had to bank the sperm before I started intensive hormone treatments because once you begin that your male organs eventually stop working altogether.
“Now, nearly two years after I started the hormones, my testosterone is undetectable – I’m at the same level as a biological woman.”
Lea plans to have full gender reassignment surgery in the future, but right now she is focused on altering her outside appearance so that she will be regarded as female.
She recalls her experience with breast augmentation.
“Getting a boob job about a year ago was an absolutely amazing experience.”
“It never felt weird at all. It was all so natural to me to wake up the next morning and have breasts.”
“Being able to show them off and have some great cleavage gave me that boost of confidence I needed to keep going on this journey.”
“I love being able to look at myself in the mirror when I’m naked and not seeing a man’s flat chest. It’s very empowering to have this feminine thing on my body.”
“I do see myself getting the full surgery but that’s not a priority for me right now.”
“What’s most important for me is being able go outside today and wholeheartedly be seen as a female.”
Lea further admitted:
“I get a lot of people saying to me ‘you shouldn’t have got your boob job, you should have got the sex change surgery first’ but I feel like my boob job has made people see me as a female.
“I’d rather go out of the house and look really natural and be happy knowing that I’m 100 per cent female.”
Lea is now very happy after starting her transition phase and couldn’t believe she waited long before doing it.
“My life is actually liveable now and I don’t have to deny who I am anymore.
“I am who I am supposed to be and I could never go back to being male.
“You have to embrace your true self because at the end of the day, it’s your life and your happiness.”
The Story Of The North Pond Hermit Who Lived Away From People For 27 Years
He spent 27 years in the wilderness and his family never reported him missing.
There are times that we get fed up with life and its demands. People work hard to earn money and thrive in the modern world. While that may be the way of life but for others, some prefer a life without hassles, problems, and interaction with others. Escaping the realities of life could be a good idea, at least for a 20-year-old man, who vanished and eventually hid in the woods of Maine for more than two decades.
The story of the "North Pond Hermit" haunted the locals for 27 years. Christopher Knight disappeared into the woods and lived in a tent in an inaccessible forest. He survived by the food he stole from surrounding cabins and campsites. He never had a conversation or interaction with another human being for nearly three decades, not until he was caught red-handed when he broke into a summer camp for the disabled.
Chris Knight left his car and vanished in 1986.
Girl Shares Great Grandmother’s Nude Photos To Shut Down Slut-Shaming Memes Online
Who ever thought that a great grandma’s nude photos can help stop the sharing of slut-shaming photos online.
Has the new generation of women really grown too liberated that their future grandchildren will be too ashamed to call them grandmothers? Are today’s ladies dressing provocatively that they deserve to become subjects of slut-shaming memes?
Comparing the women of the 1900s to the new millennium women, we can indeed notice that girls before dress more modestly than today. This is the era where wearing pants seem to be a sin, but it doesn’t really mean that ladies dress up to seduce men. Why not look at it in a more positive way like being fashionable or dressing more comfortably?
Slut-shaming wrongfully labels "too sexy" women as "slutty" and it has been going on for a long time now.
Wanted Man Turns Himself In After He Loses In A Facebook Dare With A Police
A wanted man lost to a Facebook dare with the police and he finally ended up behind the bars.
Social media already has an established name on communication and information dissemination, but apparently, its ability is not limited to just keeping people from different parts of the world connected. It appears that it is also an effective tool to catch criminals.
In a very odd scenario, a wanted man from Michigan voluntarily turned himself in after losing to a police on a Facebook challenge he came up with. He agreed to surrender himself if the police’s Facebook post about him reaches 1,000 shares. Moreover, he promised to appear at the police station with a box of doughnut if he loses to them.
