Transgender officer on Kansas City’s police force

An interesting story about a male-to-female transgender police officer in Kansas City.

This is a really interesting story about a m2f transgender police officer in Kansas City.

Jessica, a Kansas City police officer, is 6 feet tall with a chin dimple, pink manicured fingernails and a birth certificate that says “male.” She legally changed her name from David to Jessica last year and started hormone therapy, but she hasn’t had a SRS. And in January, she gained the right to dress as a woman at work.

As early as age 6, he resented that his sisters got to wear pretty dresses. He got picked on for being effeminate. He rarely cut his hair and dated little. He gained one or two friends, outcasts like him. Upon graduation, he focused on learning to act more like a man. He served in the Marine Corps for three years, married a girl from high school and then switched military branches to the Navy. At times he thought he had what he considered his “problem” licked.

After nine years he returned to St. Joseph. Bills piled up. His marriage broke down. He applied at several Missouri police departments. The thought of getting killed on the job appealed to him, since he didn’t value life much as a man. Then a back injury knocked him out of work for months, giving him time to dwell on his future.

On the Internet, David finally discovered a name for the internal hell he’d been living: gender identity disorder.

  1. The first question? Are they doing their job as well as their coworkers?If so i say leave them alone…There is more important things to argue than what sex a person wants to be.If a person can’t take a person for who they are they should try to look through the other persons eyes .And they might be able to see the whole picture instead of one dot…………

  2. God bless you Jessica, you’ve done what so many of us wish we should have done, so many of us haven’t done it because of the possible family and friend rejection, how are we going to keep a job, and mostly how are we going to be treated by the general public, there is a lot of understandable fear that keeps us from takinig that big step. Now in my late years I’m still an trying to do just that.God bless any one that takes that big step, If it makes you a happy person and it gives you what you need to dress to match how you’er brain and body feels then by God do it. Bye for now Josephine.
