While never consciously having desired to be anything other than the male stud that he is, Luke Hendrix of Nashville, Tennessee, wondered if he could possibly be in denial about being transgemder.
"I've been in denial about so many things," said Hendrix. "My drinking, my pot use, my procrastination, my horrible spending habits, even my own self-image. What if being transgender is just one more thing I've been in denial about?"
Hendrix went on to note that, being as exceptionally attractive and sought-after a man as he is, would likely only have exacerbated any denial about being misgendered.
"I'm extremely successful as a man - babes are all over me all the time," he said. "But if I became a woman, I'd be starting from scratch. Instead of being a guy who makes things happen, I'd have to get used to just sitting back and spreading my legs. Meow! Let's just say it would be different."
He added, ."Although it wouldn't be so bad having other people pay for my meals. That, I could definitely get used to."
Another possible advantage of shifting his gender identity, posited Hendrix, is that perhaps going trans might make him more politically correct. "I sometimes have trouble with that," he said.
All that being said, Hendrix does not intend to make any rash decisions about his gender identity, and plans to fully revel in his manhood for the indefinite future.
"I'm comfortable with staying a dude, at least for now," he said. "Again, maybe that's my denial talking, but, as they say, if you've got it, flaunt it. And I've got a little something - no, make that a big something - between my legs that warrants some flaunting, if you catch my drift. Just ask the ladies."
He shook his head at himself. "That politically incorrect thing again. What can I say? I'm working on it."
