Transsexual Rites Of Passage : 1988

Anne Bolin

The Knock on the door had to be Sasha, picking me up for a visit to the hospital where a mutual friend, Allyssa, had just undergone surgery. Sasha, who is in her late forities but looks ten years younger, was casually dressed in blue jeans, a blouse, and heels Her brown hair was styled in a shoulder length, curly hairdo.  This, together with her petitite five foot,  four-inch grame, contributed to an aura of youthfulness, as did her seemingly boundless enerfy. Our mutual friend was ostensibly in the hospital to have a hysterectomy, as she had informed her employers.  

As we drove, we covered a number of topics, from feminism to a man Sasha, recently met. She told me of the wonderful evening she had with a man with whom she had spent the night. She found the sexual adventure complete in all respects but one: she could not have sexual adventure complete in all respects but one: she could not have intercourse, as she told him, because of her”female problems.” Allysa was, in fact, in the hospital because o these same “female problems” although the surgery will effect a permanent “cure.”
