Shemale, All about Shemale and thr story behind




Shemale: The phenomenon of transsexuality is reflected in all cultures and throughout the ages.

There are countless documents or mythical or historical accounts, or allusions of all kinds, which refer to and suggest the existence of transsexuals in the history of humanity. In some societies they have been idolized, in others they have been marginalized and rejected.

In Greco-Roman culture, we find, for example, Ovid’s sculpture, exhibited in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
The goddess Castalia, in Greek mythology was sympathetic and acceded ” to the desires of female souls locked in male bodies .”

In ancient Rome, there were people born with the body of a man, who decided their gender and autocastraban their male genitalia. They were the Gallae priestesses.  The Jewish philosopher Philo of Alexandria (20 BC-50 AD) described male Roman citizens who invested large sums of money to change their masculine to feminine nature.
Ovideo, poet of ancient Rome, contemplates all possible body changes in his poem “The Metamorphoses” suggesting quite clearly the desire of some people of his time to change sex. The Roman emperor Heliogabalus (218-222 AD) claimed to feel like a woman. He even asked his doctors to perform surgery to change sex.

Already in the Middle Ages we even have references to transsexuality within the Catholic Church itself. For example to Saint Wilfrida, whose legend says that he asked God to be able to become a man and was granted him. Likewise, Saint Onofre asked God to make him male, and his body was masculinized. From Pope John VIII (successor of Leo IV) rumors have always been running that a woman was born biologically, although she spent her whole life as a man, a story that was censored several times by the Inquisition. We can also mention quite obvious cases such as that of Joan of Arc (1412-1431) that was executed by the Inquisition as well as by witchcraft, by constantly wearing men’s clothes and behaving like a man at all times.

Nor does the trace of transsexuals in history disappear when they were considered deviant. Not when they were turned into criminals (the law of vagrants and crooks applied to them). Not when they were described as mentally ill.




Thousands of characters of all times and all social fields have been born transsexuals. Among them are doctors, philosophers, lawyers, telephone operators, hairdressers, mechanics, military, artists, businessmen, scientists, pharmacists, professors, politicians, photographers, plumbers, athletes, etc.

The first public case of a transsexual person subjected to a sex change was Christine Jorgensen, an American military officer, successfully operated in 1953.

To name another of the many known cases we will mention Lynn Conway, a renowned scientist in the computer world, who did not reveal her transsexuality until she was sure that she had triumphed with her discoveries.

Another character of our times is Dana Internacional, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1997 representing her country, Israel. As a curious fact we will say that that year, for the first time, he chose the public.

Undoubtedly transgender people have always existed, and in all places of the world.

We must bear in mind that the results of the psychopathology questionnaires (MMPI) show that transsexual people are remarkably free of major psychopathology such as schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder or bipolar disorder. It is therefore useless to insist that transsexuality is a whim, a fad or a perversion of the individual. On the contrary, serious research and the ability to offer multidisciplinary and global treatments for public health are increasingly necessary in order to improve the quality of life of these people.

The stories of the lives of transsexuals throughout history are possibly the most illustrative that has been published in pages on the subject transsexual.

The work of Isabel Rico is excellent. Far away are mediocre articles always with a morbid background about sex, surgical butchers, perverse and dark lives, or street characters without dignity or ambition. All this junk and science fiction. Transsexuals are ordinary citizens who are increasingly outraged to hear so many barbarities about us.

Throughout the centuries there have been transsexuals in all the countries of the planet, therefore the transsexuality in no case can treat neither of a cultural question, nor of a fashion. All of them have fought for their identity, neither more nor less what the general population would do if they were born in the genre they do not feel like theirs.

What Isabel is doing is, at last, a testimony of reality: number of human lives, men and women, who because of being transsexuals have had very difficult, very hard existences, lives of loneliness and marginalization, many times condemned to prison and , always, at all times, deprived of their rights and subjected to the distrust of some and the morbid curiosity of others.

The research in search of transsexual people who have lived through the ages, as well as the investigation into their lives, is very important for transsexuals who live today. From great scientists known in the world of science to thieves and con artists “of prestige”, passing through saints and religious: thousands of people have been born transsexuals over the centuries, and all have lived under their true identity, despite the Holy Inquisition, of the skinheads, of the Law of Vagrants and Crooks, of Muhammad and the Muslims, and of the very flames of hell.
