Hi there all;

    My name is Ramondt, and I am 47 years of age and an Afrikaans speaking South African.
    I believe I struck gold when starting to read some articles on Wikipedia, especially the ones dealing with transgender issues. 
    I am what you would call alternately a "third-spirit", an androgyne and so the list goes on and on. I never knew so many people all over the world 

have the same issues I have, wow!

    The problems and blessings I have are numerous, but the biggest one is 1) The way others view me (2) Using public utilities without being laughed at, shouted at or being pushed around; (3) Dealing with scrutiny and opinionated folks. 
    Due to my transgender issues, I work from home. I do not quite fit in with the normal he-she crowd even though folks generally like me, until they know that I am not quite what they thought me to be at least. 
    I write poetry in my spare time, read a lot and love playing Skyrim, the PC game. I do see myself as an intelligent human being, and truly speaking, have come to think of myself as "I am who I am and what I am".My spirit and my body are in constant battle; for now I am beginning to get used to it. 
    Would anyone with related issues like to talk with me via this page? I have been happily "married" for 20 years, am truly neither male nor female and can pass for either (and usually do). I just sometimes like to talk about some issues that family members do not seem to understand. 

Hope to hear from you soon!--Ramondt (talk) 07:14, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Ramondt. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 18:29, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
