Tiffany upstairs needs me at least in practical ways. She has been for her penis removing at last and a vagina putting in. I’ve been feeding Oedipuss while she was in hospital.

She shows me her new genitalia, then we look at Guardian Soulmates online. Some are quite nice. Since we are both open to either a woman or a man (how flexible is that), Tiff suggests going halves on a subscription.

‘But I’d only tick ‘fling’ for myself, Tiff. You want the whole big affaire d’amour.’

‘I don’t believe you just want a fling. The way you go on about Conservative Jeremy.’

‘CJ? Pah! He was just a shag.’

‘I don’t know how you could have gone to bed with a Conservative.’

‘ The ‘C’ isn’t his politics. He only does missionary position.’

‘I’d love that.’

‘Anyway I’m deffo not ready for another seventeen-year joined-at-the-hip thing like with Ilka.’

‘Oh, I want joined-at-the-hip. I want forever. I want the love of a good woman. Or a knight on a white horse.’

  1. Love getting your stuff, Suki. Often think about how you’re getting on.

    • To be honest Jane, we moved on pretty sharpish from Guardian Soulmates.

      Who wants a man who cries. Or a woman who doesn’t wear make-up on principle.

  2. Tiffany is very brave to have had the op. I am halfway there, having been on female hormones for years, but don’t intend to go any further, since, like you Suki, I like both. Not having met anyone yet, I want to keep my options open. Anyway I don’t like surgery. I know from friends who have gone through with it, it seems very successful. Nevertheless, Tiffany IS very brave, as of course there is no going back, and I do know of one who wishes she could.

    Anyway, colleges and artists DO find my body with breasts and male bits interesting enough to employ me.

    • Thanks for this Bea. You too are brave – helping to create a world in which everyone can be who they want to be. Most people are, I believe, scared of a) difference, and b) being different. You are liberated. All power to you.

      • Aww thank you Suki. I am just ME.

        P.S. My modelling for the colleges, I have been told, DOES break down any prejudices the students might have had.
