Alice Jane is a male, a husband and father, an engineer and, in her words, a Slackware Linux geek. Oh, and Alice Jane is also a crossdresser, with no desire to go beyond occasional crossdressing.
Alice Jane is not an expert on gender health and identity issues, nor is she a medical doctor, a psychiatrist, or a psychologist.
Nevertheless, she has attempted to write an essay on sex and gender, which was prompted by a question from a cisgender woman, a friend, who has been struggling to understand how Alice can be a husband, father...and a crossdresser? For many, it boggles the mind.
I'm featuring this post because I think Alice has done a good job in her attempt to answer her friend's questions. She's sharing her answer, in the form of an essay, via her blog. Clearly, her essay lacks credits, and is certainly not written by an "expert", but she's done her homework, it it's worth reading for those of you who may have to explain similar questions.
Go here to read her post, An essay on sex and gender. Then, go here to read a followup post, More on sex and gender. It's all in her blog, Alice Jane in Newcastle.
