I’m a girl trapped in a boy’s body. I’ve only cross-dressed once, but it was the best feeling of my life! The thought of painting my nails and wearing make-up gives me amazing thrills.

Is it a good idea to use horomones (when I’m in college) and completely and legally change my identity so that no one knows that i was John but was always Mckayla?
