Animal-minded society would influence you to interpreting this challenge in a sexual way, which would be all about who plugs who. Don't listen to these monkeys. Think of it energetically and magnetically. You have already said that you chose your parents - so you accept reincarnation. If you accept reincarnation then you must have realized that you have been plugging others and been plugged for millenia - this is not the purpose of human life. Rather than having either one polarity become attracted to an external attraction, find the way to create an attraction to it's polar opposite within you. So a love affair is created within you. Remember, most people cannot do this because they have only one sexuality that is dominant and the other repressed, which means that they are forced to seek an outside complimentary in order to complete themselves emotionally. (whether homosexual or heterosexual)
I agree with other posters who have said to approach this issue from a mystical standpoint.

[snipped for outrageous rudeness. ]
ha tell me about it. exactly what i think. if i didnt have this, its exactly what i would have said if i was in me teens/early 20s and ignorant.
however i know better than to refer to anyone in any derogatory manner.
there also studies that show that males who have urges to be females have neuron levels similar to femals and brain sizes similar to females.
i did not choose to be this way or to have these urges. the urges are to have cosmetic surgery, hormones, and to physically become a woman:edit on 6/23/2012 by kosmicjack because: removed rudeness

supposedly feeling is retained, if not, even more enhanced than before. but for the overall picture, its neither here nor there.
im not 100% on this. its like a 50/50 battle, tho even those numbers change. some days im 100% ready to go through the change, then other days im 100% sure i want to stay a dude.
its like when ur in a good mood on a certain and make plans for something a week later, based on that good mood. then the day comes, but u feel like staying in that day. each day brings its own moods, or percentage of what gender i want to be. thats why i havent made the jump yet, cuz different days its different moods

I'm not somebody who feels a lot of sympathy for transgendered people in general, so it is hard for me to come on here and defend the feelings and sensations you have towards being a woman when you were born a man. I thought transgenders to be attention-seeking exhibitionists. A part of me still believes that the whole practice is unnatural and those having these tendencies should not be encouraged to act in this way.
However, reading stories like yours are slowly changing my mind. I am beginning to find myself becoming more tolerant of people with lifestyles they didn't choose but have to suffer for if they truly want to be themselves. It must be difficult harbouring these intense sensations inside while society looks down upon you for expressing these feelings.
At the end of the day, I think you need to find out what makes you happy and embrace that lifestyle.
