Letter Typed for Legibility
Dennis and Rena:
Perhaps this letter will explain many things. I know you have both wondered why I’ve remained so distant and never tried to contact you the last few years.
My past life was very mixed up, an inborn problem that made a normal life impossible for me. Your mother and I separated because of it, and I’m sure you must remember something, Dennis. Rena was too young then.
To be brief, no matter how hard I’ve tried in the past, I have never been able to accept myself as a male, and nearing the brink of possible suicide, I submitted myself to extensive medical and psychological research. It was determined that I was a transsexual, physically a male, but more basically a female. The magnitude of the predominant sex could not be reduced. In December 1969, I underwent conversion surgery for sex-reassignment. I am no longer a would be man and I have my true identity now, and am much happier for it.
I’m sorry for the hurt this must bring, but you both have full lives ahead of you and I was only able to salvage a portion of mine.
Don’t ever worry about either of you being abnormal, this thing is not hereditary, and I know you will both have good lives.
Think how hard it is for my parents to accept this, they do not fully understand, nor do I understand.
I’m very sorry for the coldness on my part towards you both in the past, but now you understand why it was better I stay away, I could sense my destiny.
I’m proud of you both and wish I were free to express everything I feel.
Please don’t hate me for what I’ve done. Life is full of the unexpected.
