In response to Just Plain sad.
17 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sorry that you feel the way you do Mina about this show. The reality of it all is that yes the world is so superficial when it comes to looks. Yet at the same time, you be that ugly duckling outside and feel it in the inside, and you be the odd one that everyone makes fun of and picks on your hole childhood and teenage life. You be the one that has been called every ugly name in the book and get no love and affection from anyone OUTSIDE your family. You be the one that for years get your self esteem knocked down over and over again. I hope that one day you look in that mirror and see total discuss cause the world has degraded you from felling pretty or attractive and you want nothing more then to make changes and be so financially strapped that it becomes nothing but a dream to you. I am a 39 year old transsexual. I was an ugly boy who was picked on cause I looked like a girl and beet up everyday of my life till I quit school at 16 and ran away just to find someone who would accept me. Then I meet someone that gave me affection and showed me love but controlled me and degraded me on a daily basis because I was so ugly I would never find anyone else to love me and if I ever left I would die alone and ugly. I then left and did make changes that I could afford. I stated hormones and started to make the transition of being a transsexual. I am a decent looking TS but still very insecure of myself. I have very small breast that my friends pick on me and call man breasts. I also have a somewhat masculine jaw line and broad shoulders and no hips and ass. Out of shape and unattractive under my clothes. I have to live with that on a daily basis. I would love more than anything to have a ticket to go on this show and be able to for once in my life feel better about myself and love whom I see in the mirror. To feel confident with myself. I would not do it for anyone but ME. I would be content to live my life alone for the rest of my life and be happy and love myself then be alone and disgusted with my looks. I am called Vanessa and my friends all call me Man-essa, I am not a very unattractive person and I do look very passable but there are still those features I could never change due to finances. This show does it for those like me who dream of finally loving themselves.
