(CNSNews.com) – A 26-year-old lesbian deployed to Afghanistan reportedly brought along male hormones — part of her ongoing sex change from female to male,the Military Times reported this week.
The Specialist — who eventually plans to take the name “Keith” — says she has been legally married to a woman for the past two years. Contacted in Afghanistan by the newspaper, Keith said her voice is getting deeper: “I’m getting more muscle. I feel more energy. I feel more like myself,” she was quoted as saying.
Keith also told the Military Times that her deployment to Afghanistan is a good opportunity to start taking male hormones: “I work out about every day, so the body definition is looking good.” She said she’s able to work out more when she’s deployed than she could when she’s home.
