Hi There!

Me in Paris

If this is your first visit to this space, hello and thanks for coming.

(And for the regular readers of this space – thanks! I’m glad you have been here all along!)

If you are wondering what’s going on here, check out the “How to Read This Blog” link, as well as the “About M()” link on the top right – those are good places to start.

I think what you will find here is that I’m just an everyday person, with a wife (Anh), kids (Peri, John and Samwich), a great bunch of friends and a job that I love.

Yup, I happen to be transgendered, but I don’t consider that to be a defining characteristic, just one of many.

I hope that you can find something interesting, funny, new or informative here…. so welcome!

Megan

    Mine is just a strange question. If Washington changed your drivers license and recognizes you as a female (congrats on following your heart) how do they let you stay legally married to a woman when Washington has a ban against same sex marriages? Is there a legal twist in there?

    Megan>> Once you are married, the state can’t “unmarry” you… Just to be clear, I have a license thats “F”, but an M passport and an M birth certificate. What gender am I? Who knows….

    Hey Megan! I just read your story on abcnews.go.com.I just wanted to say I really admire your class and courage in what you’ve been through. We all face different battles and I one day hope to have the same amount of courage to be myself that you have had to be yourself.

    Stay cool,
    Lizzy (from New Zealand)

    I think you’re an inspiration. I’m dealing with being transgender, but I’m a female who wants to be male. I wish I had the money and the courage to go through what you’ve gone through. It’s amazing to see someone be successful despite being transgender. Thank you for doing the story on ABC.. I feel more confident in myself after having seen it.

    Megan!
    Good for you!! I met a transgender person about 20 years ago… I learned so much from him as he underwent the full surgery…as a nurse, I wanted to be of some help to her and she was a wealth of information to me! She was truly trapped in her old body and her transformation was just incredible. I was thrilled to see your story and to hear your coworkers so supportive. Live your life and ignore the ignorant people. They do not know the pain and conflict you have endured. You are surrounded by many beautiful people and know that there are a lot of people like myself who have seen the benefit of taking the chance and embracing the life that was meant to be yours. Good for you, Megan, GOOD FOR YOU.. Evi

    You go girl !!!

    I posted a comment on Nightline also.

    I’m a former attorney and current Realtor Broker [Asst. Broker] in MD/DC/VA.

    Never thought that I would meet anyone quite like me. Like you, I wear no makeup either and am a former pilot. Unlike you, my first Realtor firm fired me the minute they found out about me.

    Fire me off an e-mail. I’d love to hear from you.
