Just saw this on FB. Here's a statement he (she?) made:

"First, yes this is really me and yes I am transgender. Second, one does not "become" transgender you are or you aren't. I have known this since I was five years old and it has been a very heavy burden to carry. I never asked for nor did I want this. For most of my life I would have given anything to not feel the way I do and at one point it drove me to consider suicide. Now I am perfectly comfortable with who I am and have been very open about this for many years. I told Wendler and Dave Tate at Elitefts when I first signed on and they were and still are very supportive of me as are nearly all of my close friends which comprise the majority of the top lifters in the sport. Ed Coan even recently reached out to me to offer his support.

At this point I do live my life in both genders but I am still undecided about whether or not to fully transition to living as a female full time. It would solve many of the most difficult issues I have struggled with but would also be a huge sacrifice as I would have to give up much of what I have worked so hard for. I also have three amazing sons that fully support whatever decision I make but I feel that I need to be there for them as I am at least until they're adults even if it means a great deal of sacrifice for myself.

One thing that I am 100% certain of is that if I do eventually decide to transition I would never compete in powerlifting again. I feel that would be a no-win situation and I would never want to do anything that would reflect negatively on the transgender or powerlifting communities.

If you have respectful questions ask away. I am an open book. ".

I find it hard to understand anyone who feels like this either way (male/female or female/male) your born into a body so that is who you are. I understand gay people or lesbian but to want to mutilate your body to where you're no longer male or female is baffling.

Good luck to him / her.

I cannot imagine a much more miserable life than believing you are born in the wrong sex (provisos about being born in the First World etc being as given).

I like this. I'm sick and tirede of getting b**ched out by MtFs when I say that competing as female is giving them an unfair advantage.

Because your male bonedensity and muscle structure gained from transitioning later in life makes me transphobic.

I've been reading some stuff on transgender and feminism. It's interesting but as you say, you can change your gender but you can't change your sex

Thread idea - "What would you name yourself if you changed gender?"

I don't think I'd be Waynetta.

The thing I'm not sure about is if he knew he felt this way since he was 5 what was the driving force behind pushing his body so much towards the 'alpha male' or big bulky man look? Worried about acceptance or in denial? Really curious not trying to be negative.

He probably won't get the same press that Bruce/Caitlin is getting, which is a shame cos you know he didn't kill anyone.
