That's a great story. I *wish* I had been mistaken for a girl growing up, but alas, never happened ^_~ Only got teased and called a fag.

There are definitely moments in Tuck where I can identify, to quite a degree. That's one of the reasons why I'm so caught up in it.

I was the smallest person in my class until I was a senior in high school. I was considered an associate member of the girls club since Jr. High when I started getting harassed and I was pulled into the girls bathroom by my female friends for safety. I never passed as a guy that well either physically or mentally but I fit right in with the girls.I am still close friends with some of them to this day. They all told me when I realized that I was TS and later found I was intersexed was, "what took you?" we have known since Jr. High. And I think why didn't someone tell me ? As I was almost totally clueless for years as I grew up in a small town. Maybe being blonde has something to do with it ?

somthing kinda similar happened to me a few years ago in a programming class(freshman year of college). a girl came down and started talking to me, but then as we went on she kinda discovered that i might not be a girl... but i knew she was a girl... but as we started talking i started wondering if she was really a girl. but to make a long story short. it turned out our first impresions where both right.. in a way. and we are still very close freinds.

had the highest voice in the choir. not hard since it was an all boys school. but i had a higher voice than all the freashman who's voices hadn't changed yet. in fact, one song was sang had a castrati part. the director thought one of the freshman might still be able to sing it. but i was the only one, and i was a senior. ya.. the first tenors in our choir took a lot of teasing, buti didn't really notic the extra teasing i got from choir. there was so much of it already. i mean. i also played the flute, not just in chior. i had little fifes and penny whistles i'd play between classes.

every one i talk to is always amaised i made it out of highschool wouth out ever getting beat up.

Wow, more great stories.

I was at the other end of the spectrum in A Cappella choir--I was one of the lowest basses! I always got called Barry White ;p It never got me in trouble or anything, but I don't enjoy having a low voice, I've always hated it.

I (a boy then) was always going with the altos and sopranos up high in voice exercises when I was in choir. I kept this up even after the voice break (learned the falsetto or something), it was just too enjoyable to lose. And later, in college age, I actually sang alto in another choir -- I just simply said "that's my voice range" and proved it. So I was the only "male alto" there. It did wonders for my mood, because I couldn't transition yet. I have a suspicion that this has helped me tremendously with my female voice after the transition.
