66 Year Old Gets Sex Change In Britain

January 19, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – Michael Mason, a 66 year old businessman from the United Kingdom, has become Britain’s oldest person to receive a sex change operation, after an entire life spent wishing he was a woman.

Michael, now going by the name Michelle (naturally), told reporters that she had always felt as though she was meant to be female, since she was a little boy.

“I had a fascination with girls’ clothes and I cried when my mum dressed me for school because I wanted to wear a gym slip like the girls,” he explained sadly. β€œAt primary school I always hung around with the girls, that was how I liked it but when I was sent to an all-boys grammar school things had to change.
“The woman who became my wife was only the second girlfriend I had ever had. It was the 1960s and people never really spoke about being transvestites or sex changes or anything like that, so you just got on with things. But I was miserable.”
So, after four children, and eleven grandchildren, Michelle decided it was time to take steps to make her life what she wanted it to be. She began hormone treatments in 2007, and was surprised by the support she was able to get from her family, even if her life changed dramatically.

“My wife knew I was unhappy but she did not know how far it went. I expected her to go mad but she calmly said if I want to become a woman then I should admit it. But it was the end of our marriage.”

She is now dating a 70 year old man who used to be a chairman with Britain’s Conservative Party. They are planning a life together, which Michelle hopes will lead to all the dreams she has always wanted.

“He is my rock and the love of my life and I hope that by this time next year we will be living together.”
