But if I can’t go from the body I have to a body that I am certain would feel very right - right like having wings would be or even right like wearing spats would be - then I think, maybe not for me. Which isn’t to say it’s not for you, of course. You should move toward whatever changes, whatever surgeries, whatever renovations or alterations or restorations will create you in the glory you deserve, oh yes you should. And you should do it with your usual style, and you should do it without shame, and when you’re healed up and ready we can go shopping for something fabulous to showcase the many wonders of you.
