Transgender Tired Of Being A Woman Needs Change

Chelsea Attonley, was a man who felt he would be better off as a woman, and undertook a sex change. Years after, she wants to go back to being a man after admitting that being a woman is exhausting.

Chelsea Attonley, a transgender, was once a man who was born Matthew, but decided he wanted to become a woman and spent £10,000 to effect a sex change to become a woman.

But now, 7 years after, she is tired of living life as a woman and wants the United Kingdom taxpayers to foot the bill for a further £14,000 of surgery so she can become a man again, her reason being that it is exhausting going through life as a woman.

The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea Attonley, 30, said she is tired of putting on make-up and wearing heels always, and now accepts that she should have stayed a man.

Chelsea said she had struggled with her identity while growing up in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, and as a child, she would dress up in women's clothes.

In her twenties she became a drag queen known as Miss Malibu, drawing on glamour model Katie Price's look for inspiration.

The newspaper noted that an initial bid for a sex change to become a woman was turned down by a doctor, sending Chelsea into a spiral of depression, she said.

Chelsea, who lives on welfare benefits, told a magazine she finds dressing and acting as a girl 'exhausting' and feels she has never been fully accepted as a real woman.

She is aiming to have a breast reduction on the NHS and painful gender reassignment surgery to give her back a penis at a total cost of £14,000.

Chelsea, who changed her name by deed poll from Matthew in 2008 after a £5,000 boob job in Thailand partly funded by benefit money, says she gradually began having doubts about the sex change.

Chelsea told the Mail:

I have always longed to be a woman, but no amount of surgery can give me an actual female body and I feel like I am living a lie.

It is exhausting putting on make-up and wearing heels all the time. Even then I don't feel I look like a proper woman. I suffered from depression and anxiety as a result of the hormones too.

I have realised it would be easier to stop fighting the way I look naturally and accept that I was born a man physically. Now I have decided I want to live as Matthew, I am desperate to have my FF-cup boobs removed.

I need to have these operations for the sake of my mental health. I am lucky enough to live in a country where there is free health care.

No matter how much make-up I put on or how I dressed, I knew people would not know me as a real woman.

I was fighting a losing battle. When people found out about my past, they treated me like a liar and a fake. I suffered from anxiety and depression.
