Hello DU.

I just wanted to introduce myself real quick.

I am 42 years old, my birth name was Steve, but I go by Stephanie now, I am in the midst of a changing gender. Ever since I was a little boy, I knew I was really a girl, but I had to fight it for a long time. I even joined the Army as a youth trying to make myself a man. A couple years ago I found myself divorced and finally decided it was time for Steve to go bye bye and for Stephanie to be born. So for the past 2 years I have been living as a woman full time, and dating a wonderful man named Mike. The ironic part is I can't marry him unless they chop my man parts off, crazy aint it? Anyway, sorry I rant a lot, I am a life long Democrat because I have always been for equal rights. I love adult cartoons, hence my name Stan Smith from American Dad I love how they portray how stupid right wingers are on that show lol.

I look forward to meeting the people here and discussing how to make our country better, I'm 100% hope and change baby!

Thanks for reading this and I hope I didn't bore anyone.

37. My man Butch will park that for you - just past the lodge.

Welcome, Stan/Stephanie. I hang out here when I'm not workin' at Odd Duck Central. "Normal" is highly overrated. And yes, my man Butch is maybe a little crazy But he and Jackie are happier than if they were in their right minds Watch the vid through to the end.

You know...like a cactus. A potato cactus thing that says rude things unseriously.

That's not candy by-the-way.

Welcome!

Now we can just throw you into the deep end of the lounge pool right away or you can coast in gently, which do you prefer? Your answer to the following question will determine if you can immediately join the "War on Christmas" group where we plot to drive Bill O'Reilly insane.....

Cornflakes or breadcrumbs on top of your casseroles??

29. Welcome, welcome, welcome!!

I love JBoy's post (I thought of the tennis player first).

I think you will like it here in the Lounge. And yes, it is ridiculous that people can only marry if their junk is configured in certain ways. But we are making progress!

Best of luck with your transition. I've been a female all my life, so if you need any pointers, just ask.
