ABC News Article with video interview

Quote
“When I was about 6 years old, I started having these feminine feelings, but that was in the ’60s. Wearing my mom’s makeup, I thought I looked pretty,” Crecelius told ABC News.

Quote
Steve, who now goes by “Stevie,” said his wife and their six children accepted his new identity right away.
“We told them individually. Some were in person and some weren’t,” Crecelius said. “Every one of them said, ‘We don’t care one way or the other. We love you for who you are and you’re still my dad.’”

Crecelius and his wife, Debbie, have been together for 25 years and she’s supported him every step of the way, including taking him to buy his first bra.

Quote
“I think we were pretty good when she began to mourn the loss of her husband,” Crecelius said. “We worked through what we needed to. The concept of unconditional love is a larger story.”

Quote
For Crecelius, he hopes he can be an advocate for those born intersex and same-sex couples.
“I think of bullying, because I haven’t heard anyone talk about this. It’s important to talk about,” Crecelius said. “People need to be accepting and understand. I was born this way, and loving each other and supporting each other will always be the main factor in our household.”

I cut out the most interesting pieces of the article you are welcome to read it in full. I think this is a wonderful story with a surprisingly happy ending. Not everyone would be so lucky to have such a supportive family.
Thank you for considering my point of view; however wrong it may be to you.

That's a lovely story, and illustrates how I feel about gender and sexuality. We're all people. I think if we love, the physical details of that love shouldn't matter.
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.
