This person them goes on (aside from many comments suggesting that as a
post-op, I am still male and using masculine pronouns to describe me) to
suggest that I had incompetent therapists and I am not a transsexual.
Those issues I have passed long before and been able to overcome. I had
several very good therapists at the Vancouver Clinic and privately. I
overcame that issue and went on in a short time to SRS. Few would have been
able to do that. I doubt that many on this list have had to experience the
same horrible treatment prior to transition. I am thankful that most will
never have to endure what I experienced.
That someone would stoop so low in making such comments goes beyond any
civil discourse or any normal communication. It is contemptible and crass.
If nothing else, it does show clearly how base and low the person who made
those remarks is - a foul low-life who claims to be TS yet has not even
Yes, having been raped does indeed have an effect. Last night, the story of
the Central Park Jogger on TV and I had to turn it off. You have to try to
live with what happened and that is indeed difficult at times. My
psychiatrist still helps me with that.
I find the actions of this person beneath contempt. While I had stated I
would not respond to any further insults from her/him/it, the comments were
too extreme for me to simply pass them by.
If the rest of you on this list find this to be acceptable behaviour, then
you have my deepest pity. I hope one day you will become human. While this
group is unmoderated, it is still normal to follow civilized conduct, even
in some small matters. That such should happen and the person remain here
to harass others is perhaps unavoidable. I shall treat this person with the
contempt so richly deserved and would urge others to avoid contamination by
association - or communication - with he/she/it.

Jennifer does have a point... you, yourself in the article about you
that you posted obviously made an issue out of your rape to the
interviewer and then linked it to your decision to transition. It
says so right here...
"Willow decided to reverse her gender after a harrowing two years as a
man in Thailand. (S)he travelled there in 1995 to make a loan
transaction with two Americans who authorities later learned had
forged documents. All three were arrested, and Willow - then known as
Will - spent six weeks in a Bangkok prison, where he was repeatedly
raped by the guards.
When he got out on bail, the Thai authorities withheld his passport.
He sought psychological counselling, and his therapist suggested
becoming a woman. "
Since you, yourself, have brought up the issue, publicized it and
linked it to your decision to transition then it would appear
disingenuous at best for you to berate Jennifer for bringing it up
If you had at any time dealt with the media, you would know that one rarely
has the ability to limit what is written, and how the story is presented.
The more public a figure you are (and I was) and the more "sensational" the
story is (i.e. any reference to sex) the less control you have.
Perhaps this is a waste of time. As you implied in an earlier post, you
have had a different life. Perhaps a sheltered one. My experiences are
very different from yours and communication thus suffers.
Yes, I take issue with any person who belittles another for being a victim.
>The matter had been cross Canada news for two years - it was hardly new. It
>is a fact that it happened. I suppose to you a woman who is named as a rape
>victim is publicizing the event.
An extremely disingenuous statement from someone who is attempting to
make making a career out of his (at the time) rape incident.
"A production company has optioned the rights for a screenplay she
wrote about her nightmare in Thailand"
So even you Willow can not have it both ways. You can either
self-promote your rape via screenplays and such or you can be
indignant when someone makes a reference to it. I would counsel you
to "Choose one", but of course you already have.
>If you had at any time dealt with the media, you would know that one rarely
>has the ability to limit what is written, and how the story is presented.
I know that if you had not mentioned your rape in a Canadian newspaper
and then attempted to option it out for a screenplay, we would not be
talking about this now.
>Yes, I take issue with any person who belittles another for being a victim.
And I take issue with anyone who prostitutes and parades their
victimhood, whether it be as a transsexual or a rape victim, in the
apparent interests of self-promotion.
>"Willow decided to reverse her gender after a harrowing two years as a

is there any independant verification available of this, or is it just the
story she told to a reporter and the publication that we have to believe?
WHEN ITS TIME ITS TIME
the hardest step of any journey is the first, the most satisfying is the last.
>>"Willow decided to reverse her gender after a harrowing two years as a

>is there any independant verification available of this, or is it just the

Willow doesn't deny this so we should presume that it's true. I would
imagine that the story is probably much more complicated then that
I've also known several crossdressers who later in life (50's, 60's)
decided to either go full time and/or get SRS. One of them backed out
the evening before hir SRS in Oregon. In any case, it does happen but
I don't tend to think of such people as female really.... more
transgendered (or gender confused) then anything else.
Mmm It looks fairly typical piece of bad tabloid style journalism to me. The first
paragraph says it all, though the bit about going to a restaurant to have hormones is
gem. All thats missing is a topless photo LOL
I think if I was in Willow's position, I think I would be very angry about it makes
it all seem so trivial and sounds more like peice of satire than a serious, sensitive
and respectful account of events.

No, a certain person on this list has chosen to make an issue out of
the fact that you transitioned after a therapist advised it as a
treatment for your being raped.

No, most of us have not. And most, if not all of the rest of us would
not consider such a valid reason to transition and seek surgery.
Especially in a short time.

I don't take rape lightly. Both one of my dearest friends, and my
daughter have been through that experience. Funny thing, neither of
them has felt the slightest need to change gender.

Ah, the dreaded pity card. You can't refute what I said, as it is
based on facts that you made public. Sorry sir, but your remarks
Thank you Diane. This person weaves and bobs like a sleazy politician.
No, I think the names of rape victims should NEVER be publicized. But
let's keep the facts straight here. You were not a woman who was
raped. You were a man who was involved in a shady deal, and you got
caught. Lot's of men get raped in prison. Funny, they don't usually
decide to transition and change sex.
> If you had at any time dealt with the media, you would know that one rarely

YOU mentioned it to a writer covering YOUR decision to change sex.
The way it is written makes it clear that YOU identified your rape as
the reason that YOU decided to change sex.
> Perhaps this is a waste of time. As you implied in an earlier post, you
> have had a different life. Perhaps a sheltered one. My experiences are

Yes, Diane has had a different life. She is a transsexual, you
clearly were not. Granted, it IS arguable that you are one now.
> Yes, I take issue with any person who belittles another for being a victim.
Sorry, but NO ONE has belittled you for being a victim. You have been
belittled for being a pompous jerk who has come into this newsgroup
and told we are delusional and ashamed unless we are following your
example and identifying as out, loud, and proud "transsexual women."
I am neither. In fact, most of the time I tend to forget I am even a
transsexual at all.
You know, that is all we need. Some idiot teaching the world that men
decide to be women because they got sodomized. That is really going
to help educate people.

Well put Diane.
Let's see... Thid was interviewed, posted a link to the article, and
never stated that there were any errors or misquotes in it. Looks
pretty much like all the verification anyone could ask for.
And this sort of thing is not without precedent. I read a book
several years ago by a "former transsexual" who reverted after getting
religion. It was obvious that he was NEVER a transsexual and that a
therapist had pushed him into having surgery.
Thialand is one of the more gender nuteral nations. They have various ways of
dealing with gender. If there were a problem with the law there and she spent
time in jail, was raped it would be more likely that she would have been taken
to an airport and sent back to the united states. If on the other hand she were
free inThialand and detained for no ligt reason the american Embasy would have
reissued her pasport and taken her out of the country.
Seeing a tharapist there would have been useless unless volintary. I love
Thialans, the people are wonderful. I hope to go back one day, I lived there
for a years in the 60"s. ( the war you know).
I would like to see independant varification of her story so as to see if these
people would have taken and abused her this way.
The story is tragic, but having bought into lmany storys in the past I wish
proof. Did it happen, or did she make it up , give it to a reporter and try to
sell it as a movie.
Hell, If its fiction its one hell of a good one. if true, a very bad inditement
for the people who mis treated her.
Well not impossible I don't know Willow at all really. I suppose one does wonder why,
if the story is true why it sounds like a tale of BDSM/ enforced feminisation and you
put 2 + 2 together and it comes to Transvestite! LOL.
That said though having had some minor dealings with journalists myself and having
known others who have even appeared in National Newspapers and TV in the UK. The way
journalists write things in relation to TG and TS people can often be insensitive,
sensationalised, cliched, popularist, and border on soft tranny porn in it's style.
So I dare say this could be the case.
Mind one does wonder why she hasn't done what a friend of mine once did and go round
and throttle the journalist LOL ;) Though I suppose sometimes people can get so
carried away with the notariety of appearing in a Newspaper, they turn a blind eye to
the fact that everything they said has been twisted round to some kind of "angle" and
in many ways their innocence and trust has been abused, at worse journalism can
sometimes seem like a form of psycholgical rape in itself.
I doubt that the journalist ( or anyone else) would have known what
had transpired in a prison in Thailand unless Willow herself provided
in the details. The bit about the therapist suggesting transition as
a "cure" for the problems the prison rape brought up is something that
only could have been relayed by Willow as well.
Of course it is always possible that the journalist got things badly
screwed up but then one would not have expected Willow to so readily
point us to that article to verify things that she had said.
I've seen self-promoting trannies for years (usually on day time TV)
and I'm not impressed. Changing sex in the hopes of becoming some
sort of hero or movie star is, IMHO, an incredibly bad idea and one
that rarely, if ever these days, pans out. Fortunately we're just too
common - the days of Christine Jorgenson and Renee Richards are
thankfully long past.
Yes that's true. It's difficult to say I suppose. I did have a journalism student
create a Website about me as a University project once. And also had a minor
appearance in a Welsh language TV program about the sex lives of the Welsh (I'm
A Post Op Welsh speaking Transsexual Vicar, stole the lime-lite there, well I just
couldn't compete there. ;) ) Also once appeared in a local Freebee Fashion and
Culture magazine as part of an article publicising a club.
Since I had only just gone full-time at the time I realised from these minor
incidents of notoriety that one can do without that sort of thing. Well it can
prevent one from living ones life quietly as a relatively ordinary person let alone
as a woman and has the potential to create more problems in one's life than it is

I suppose if it were possible to attract huge amounts of money through this sort of
thing it might have some attraction, but generally notoriety of this sort is a pain
in the butt and has the potential to interfere in a very negative way in ones life,
and as you point out the days of TS rarity and the potential for big bucks are long
gone. Well even the Vicar only got 50 quid and was still complaining about having
difficulties in using Ladies rest rooms in her home village, I wonder why ;?
Trannies on TV is seen as Low budget "reality" TV and IMO one gets involved in it
entirely at one's own risk and/or through one's own stupidity.
Well I suppose it sounds a bit condemning of Willows motives. But it does appear from
that article even if it is half true that her transition period has been very short
and it can I think take a while to learn about the pitfalls of publicity as a TS, or
even as a full-time TG person for that matter.
One notable aspect about it though, is there is no picture, and Willow may not be
entirely who or what she says she is. This doesn't necessarily the person behind this
is not TS or TG but it seems unlikely that anyone desirous of a quiet unmolested life
as a TS Woman would want to do this sort of thing. But then it takes all sorts to
make up a world and if one is willing to pay the price of this sort of notoriety then
it's fair enough.
I most certainly was not involved in a shady deal as is suggested as is
shown by the fact that our Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons
flew to Bangkok to get me out of the Thai clutches, something historically
unique. A national leader does not waste his time of energy on a person who
simple gets caught.
The American embassy would do nothing - I am Canadian. Our small embassy
did what they could but the real push to get me out of the country came when
Preston Manning, the leader of our Opposition in the House of Commons and
his Foreign Affairs Critic, Bob Mills, flew to Thailand to drive a deal with
the Thai government to get me out of the country. that was and remains an
historical first, one and only. Political leaders do not do that as a rule,
one testament to my prior status and profile.
Oh yes, the four Thai judges were bribed to let me out on bail after seven
weeks. They did not give receipts.
Or would you prefer the notes of the psychiatrist who has treated me for
five years for PTSD? Of course, I might demand proof of your stores as
well, if they were of interest in any way.
Proof? What sillies?
I am dismayed and disquisted at the posts regarding my Thai experience. I
have replied to those posted that seemed to contain more than insults, but
most certainly any other victim will never come forward in this group to
seek assistance after this effort by Jennifer Usher and Diane. Demanding
proof is right off the wall - the story was covered nationally for over two
As to the bad taste in using the wrong pronouns, I thought that stupid game
ceased long ago - and it has in most civil TS groups. Even stupider when
the person making the comment still has a penis and yet calls herself a
woman. Bah! Humbug! the group of you are loathsome creatures that seem to
delight in slinking about in the mud... You are so distorted you cannot
recognize a person who honours her reputation and is credited for that.
You speak from your experiences. Let me speak from mine...
Firstly, as a lawyer I had a high public profile in B.C. - higher than your
vicar. I had been involved politically, had my own TV program for four
years (and no, I do not intend to provide "proof" of this to any standard).
When I departed for Thailand, I had a rich history of community service and
was very well known.
The incidents in Thailand were carried from coast to coast in Canada. I was
finally let out of the country after our Leader of the Opposition in the
House of Commons flew over to drive a deal with the Thai government - again
under the view of the press. As I saw it then and now, the publicity in
Canada kept me safe - it is easy to be killed in Bangkok and the deed only
costs $20US. Petty cash for Citibank and the Royal Thai police. Does your
Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons even know your name?? Or
Tony Blaire. If not, you are in a different world and ill equipped to offer
Now, after returning, the very first interview asked the question "Were you
raped". I answered "yes" and that was all. The media followed from there.
After some time, newspapers follow up on stories. They had covered the
original story, knew that I was of interest, and contacted me to find
Willow. The result is obvious - or should be. while you may have been
permitted to return to obscurity, I did not have that luxury. It was then
that I wrote the screenplay and sold the rights to my life story - simply to
get my point across. Many saw news of the initial - and corrupt - arrest.
That had damaged my reputation in some circles. I needed to correct that.
I repeat - all of you are basing comments on very partial information. Do
you seriously believe a rape victim wants to talk about that???!!!.
Nonsense. But by not talking, the Thai government would have been given a
free ride. Instead, I became a thorn in their side. And still am. I
became a witness against them during extratadition proceedings in another
matter, as I am also a witness against the accused in the Air India bombing
of 12 years ago. That resulted in FBI protective surveillance as I was
living in the United States during the first Air India trail.
Low budget reality TV?? Heck no - top in the media for an interview on a
daily TV show. The host, a friend for over 25 years, introduced me as the
most honest and trustworthy person he had ever known. No Jerry Springer.
The newspapers - feature articles not shoved onto the back pages. My return
from Thailand - front page above the fold. Oh yes, someone, maybe you,
mentioned photos to prove who I was. What tripe! If attachments were
permitted here, I might - but that would only result in JU and DM commencing
an insulting series of posts as two how I looked - without the opportunity
to reply. Am I the entity? Damn rights I am, honey. And at 56, I look
very good but have no desire to "prove" that to the group who inhabit this
list. Do you know how insulting you are to even ask that???
"One's own risk and stupidity"?? For you, perhaps. Those who are not
public can easily crawl back into the shadows. That type of assumption
belongs to JU.
How quick you and this group are to rush to judgment - to malign others
based only on your won experiences. Yet you hold up hold up the banner of
As to an unmolested life, I determined during transition that I would use my
skills to help the TS/TG community, to gain the rights we need. Your birth
certificate laws are changing. Would that have happened unless some were
willing to stand up and be counted. Of course not. Yet you, who did
nothing, get a benefit. Nice, that. I am using my legal and political
skills to advance TS/TG rights in Canada, my country. Unlike, you, and JU
and DM (or so I assume) who do nothing, I am indeed doing something. And
honey, when you do something for our community you are public no matter what
you wish to be.
Fine, lay back and take a free ride. That's what you appear to be doing.
But remember that some must step forward to get you that free ride. The way
I see things, you then turn around and insult the very people who made an

Go back to doing nothing. Sure, someone will go out and gain you rights

I am accused of telling those here how to do things. Not a bit. Just
continue to sit back and enjoy the free ride, as you are doing. Don't march
for justice, don't fight for marriage rights or name change. Let others do
that. Continue in mediocrity and nothingness. Hide, but all means.
Bah! Maybe the Welch are as Churchill said...

That is simply not true. No one gets a "free ride", especially now with the
activists becoming more visible each day.
I read of problems transsexual people have here and the only thing I can
attribute it to is the increased awareness of society, an awareness that
seems to be mostly negative.
I transitioned before the internet....before Jerry Springer, and overall I
can say that I had few problems. I began being as stealth as I could and I
had no problems changing my credentials. After SRS, changing my birth
certificate was a simple matter. I did have a severe financial struggle but
no more so than any other person beginning in a new place with few contacts
and armed only with skills in a field that at that time was dominated by
I will support, in any way I can, those women struggling quietly through
transition, but I would not even acknowledge the transgendered activist
groups which unnecessarily include transsexual people in their agenda and
are succeeding only in slowing down and possibly even reversing the gains
made by them over the last 40 years.
As I said.....I would really hate to try to transition today........I feel
like I was the one who really had the "free ride".

You are indeed right. You know, it make me wonder who we try to gain rights

them in the mud they create for themselves. After all, I am fine with my

Happily, other groups have more support and courtesy. The minority here do
not represent most TS/TG people. They represent a small cancer at best.
The majority here are content - or so it seems - to sit back and say or do
nothing, from fear of attack if no other reason. That is the silent
majority everywhere. It is impossible to get them to do anything - even to

I think that people are naturally concerned with the link between your
experience and the decision to get SRS thereafter. The newspaper
article that you quoted indicated that your decision to transition
occurred because of your rape experience while still in jail.
This naturally sets of some red flags to most post-ops who's personal
experience and the experience of all they have met thus far has been
that TSs feel that they need to change gender from a very early age.
I would ask you if you had been an active crossdresser from an early
age - my assumption is that you had been. I gave known
crossdressers who decided to go full time to varying degrees later on
in life - late fifties to sixties - as you have done. I know of
possibly only one other TS who choose to wait such a long time - most
of us are unable to survive that long.
So I put together your extremely late transition along with your
obvious identification with non-TS individuals, transgendered people
and drag queens (Lyle, Jenice, etc) and wonder if you are one of
those individuals who are primarily a crossdresser and then decided to
go further in their fifties. I don't know one way or another of
course but I do know that your experience (lack of prior strong need
to change physical sex, extremely late transition, etc) is much
different from the other TSs that I have encountered.

You continually insist on misinterpreting what I am saying. By the
numbers (once again)....
1. I do not now nor ever have demanded proof of your experience. I
take you at your word that rape occurred while you were a man in a
men's prison in Thailand.
2. My only point of contention is your pretending to be victimized by
this discussion while AT THE SAME TIME publicizing your rape
experience in various newspapers and even attempting to write a
screenplay about it.
3. You can not have it both ways. You can not be indignant about some
alleged invasion of your privacy about an incident while at the same
time putting the incident up for sale on the big screen.

Another round of weaving, ducking, and dodging. The question at hand
is, did the person using the name Willow have SRS as a result of being
sodomized in a Thailand prison? Notice how this person avoids that
issue, and tries to misdirect the discussion?
I disagree. It sounds like the journalist was honest. That this
person does not pass, and that Willow's quotes were the basis of the
statement that SRS was sought because of the rape.

BUT, Willow is obviously quite proud of it.
