Born a boy in I was raised as a girl and live as a woman today
I grew up in small town, village really, in a large family of boys. My mother treated me like a girl and I wore girl clothes. I wore my hair long, in braids and I answered to Ericka a girl name. In grade school the boys made fun of me and girls thought I was weird. It's not like anyone was fooled, in my town everyone knew my mother had only boys buy raising me as a girl was because she always wanted a girl and never got her.
In junior high and high school I was more accepted as a girl by the other girls. Mind you, while they blossomed I didn't, so I wore padded bras and more than once a girl would help me straighten out. I never participated in sports and I grew up with narrow shoulders and I walked like a girl because I always did. In high school one girl was curious if I had a p**** or not and I showed her and she showed me what a girl really looked like. I can't say the girl part was interesting to me. By then I wore my p**** in a sling to keep it behaved and not show.
I went on my first date with a boy, I let him kiss me and feel me up, he made me e********. I had to put out, which meant letting him take me from the back. I dated him for two years and at school we were a couple and no one said anything much about it. Maybe curious as how we had s**, but we weren't pushed around.
When I was 19 my draft number came up and I was asked if I was 'q****'. I said no, not really and I joined the Army and went go basic training. I reverted to my girl self when I was home but not in the Army. I was assigned as a clerk to Germany and avoided Viet Nam. On my trips home I dressed as a girl and went out. But on base and everything Army I was strictly regulation dress.
I am both gay and not gay, if you can get it. Gay enough to date men when I'm a woman, but not gay in the sense that I never date men dressed as a man. It sometimes took my 'date' a moment to figure out that I was a special girl. I was always a girl in every sense with them and if I liked them it sometimes ended up in s**, and I could certainly entertain s** with them, it's just not what they think when we start dating. I had no problem getting dates. There are many men who like dating girls like me.
I am retired now and live in Carlsbad and I 'date' regularly and I have men who look me up. I have lived all my life as a girl and I have no problem 'pulling it off'. I go by Erika and I have can make a man enjoy the evening and my company. And at this age I meet men who enjoy being with a woman like me, not surprised at all if we find that we get along well enough to get amorous and enjoy each other's company.
