Top model admits being transsexual

Taiwanese model Alicia Liu (Xun Ai) has admitted that she is a transsexual.

The 24-year-old model-cum-actress, nicknamed Xiao Ai, said she underwent sex-change surgery at the age of 18.

"My ex-boyfriend paid for it," she said in an interview with a Taiwan magazine on Friday.

Liu, whose original name was Zi Hua, became popular following her appearances on a parody television programme.

She was described as having a face as innocent as an angel with sexy curves and a sweet voice.

She is 171cm in height and weighed 50kg with a vital statistics of 34C-25-34.

Liu’s "real" identity was exposed when a schoolmate a year her junior revealed her "secret" on the Internet recently.

The schoolmate had also attached a photo taken from the school’s graduation album, in which Liu was placed in the male category.

After that, Liu called for a press conference to state that she was happy with her current name and identity.

"As far as I can remember, I love being a woman. The past is not important," she said while showing reporters her identity card, which stated that she is a female.

She neither denied nor admitted the rumour at that press conference.

However, on Friday, a week after the press conference, she admitted that she was a transsexual, reported China Times.

Liu said she had always been treating herself as a woman. She wore a skirt to school and used the female toilets.

She had five boyfriends and it was her second lover who paid for her operation.

The model also said she had a normal sex life like any other women. Some of her ex-boyfriends did not know of her true gender.

Her fifth lover, also a model, had shouted vulgar words upon finding out that she is a transsexual.

She thanked her family for their support.

Why is it that those who have undergone sex correction surgery are still thought to be 'transing' their sex when in fact they are the sex to which they now identify not only mentally but physically? She simply melded her genital sex with her brain gender. She is not living a life of mimicry but as the female she was born to be. This confusion is a result of the misinformed who equate a transgender/transvestite with one who actually NEEDS to bring their physical body into harmony with their brain.

Society should be more forgiving towards transsexuals. They are very nice people trapped in the wrong bodies.
