Call Me Ben; Mr. Brock Is My Father-In-Law

BenBrock1On this day of the eighth of July, in 2016, at 0938, as sworn by Judge Wyatt, I am officially Bennett Alexander Brock, male.

Since last March, I have been on HRT, and I have had two gender confirming surgeries. I have no immediate plans to do anything further. If this is as good as it gets, then this is as good as it gets.

I didn’t have too many expectations when I started this process. I just knew I couldn’t be female anymore. I couldn’t live the rest of my life like that. Am I where I expected to be? Yes and no. Is the process completely over? Not really, but I think I have most of the major stuff out of the way. I’m fairly certain you would consider me “transitioned”.

As I said, I’ll probably work on some things. Body sculpting, voice therapy, etc. But I will be more insistent about being called by an appropriate name, and having my gender respected. As far as I’m concerned, I have completed my obligations to society to not be considered female anymore.

I know I should feel elated, but I’m currently in some pain due to my recent surgeries. I hope to celebrate soon.

Ben

    I am so happy for you. I cannot expect to know your struggle, although I had (she has passed) a good friend who was finally able to live her life as the gender she knew she was born as. I saw her relief at being to live her truth. I hope all is good in your future and acceptance is wide spread. Getting to “know” you in the small way of facebook, I find you a beautiful, caring and courageous man. I am honored that you have been my “friend” and that you cared enough to reach out to me. My love and friendship always are yours.

    Ben, congrats, if I met you on the street I would never think that you had been female at one time. Or really you never really were female. Good luck in the future
