In June, Richard Ramsey conduct operations at Lower Bucks Hospital, Bristol Township. Finish the operation, its name was changed to Renee Ramsey. Now, ramsey be a tall woman, thin, and wearing a sweater worn by his wife.

Ramsey had decided to become a woman at the age of 77 years for several reasons. First, at age 20 to 30 of the year, he was not aware of irregularities in her. Second, at the age of 40 years, he realized but still in doubt about his identity.

Third, when age 50 to 60 of the year, he was absolutely sure that he wanted to be a woman, but could not do surgery because it still has a wife. And finally when his wife dies, there is no reason that could keep him to really become a woman.

“Actually, my desire to become a woman so long ago,” said Ramsey who is a veteran of over 20 years, as quoted by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Wednesday (12/11/2009).

“Now the hardest thing I have to do is learn to be a woman. If I am angry, I should be angry as a woman. But now I feel more happy and calm. I am also more happy that the lady was called by everyone,” said Ramsey.

Leis are open practice at the Center for Transgender Surgery since the year 204, had surgery for 250 people, either male or female, who wants to change her genitals. And none of the patients who regret the operation. “They’re just waiting for the surgery for a very long time and have carefully considered. In fact, they appeared happier after the surgery,” said Leis.

Fortunately, 2 years later, he managed to convince a woman to marry him. They have 4 children and his sex life was fine. But then he divorced his wife and moved to Arizona.

Though still unsure of their gender, but Ramsey was married again to a woman in 1982. Ramsey never told his wife that he was a transgender. “But he began to wonder why a lot of lingerie in the laundry. And finally I confess that I also use it,” said Ramsey.

“We have a sex life smoothly. Berhubungang But each sex, I always imagined what it would be in a position like my wife,” he added. Ramsey produce 1 child from second marriage, but until now his son does not know that he is transgender.
