Transgender Woman Wants To Go Back To Being A Man
A British transgender woman says she wants to go back to being a man, six years after her gender switch.
Back in 2007, Chelsea Attonley, then living as Matthew, met glamor model Katie Price and expressed a desire to be a woman and look like her. Price encouraged Matthew to do it, so not long after, she underwent gender reassignment surgery. That operation cost the NHS the equivalent of over $16,000 U.S. dollars.
Now, Attonley has decided that she no longer wants to be a woman and is asking the NHS for the nearly $23,000 to reverse her reassignment surgery.
“I have always longed to be a woman, but no amount of surgery can give me an actual female body and I feel like I am living a lie,” said Attonley. “It is exhausting putting on make-up and wearing heels all the time. Even then I don’t feel I look like a proper woman. I suffered from depression and anxiety as a result of the hormones too. I have realized it would be easier to stop fighting the way I look naturally and accept that I was born a man physically.”[su_csky_ad]
