"Ny name is Michael and I am a female. I was born in 1975. While I have been asked some pretty stupid questions about my name throughout my life, all in all I embrace it. Later in life I have started spelling it Mykal to make it a little more feminine, but it still pronounced the same." Dec. 11, 2014:
"Yes, my name is Michael and I've always been female. My experience is there are a lot of ignorant and insensitive people out there. I've been insulted so many times and have dealt with some asinine comments. I love my name and would never change it.
My middle name is Rhyan. Pronounced Ryan." Jul. 14, 2014:
