Man goes to the Dr. & finds out he's actually a woman!
What do you do when a standard trip to the Emergency Room ends up in a sex change? Well, it's a situation that a man in Denver, Colorado, experienced when he went to the ER because of kidney stones--only to have the nurse come back and inform him that he is "intersex", meaning that he was actually born with both male and female parts.
What do you do when you find out that you're not who you thought you were?

The man in question, Steve Crecelius, actually took it quite well, since the he had always felt different from little boys since he enjoys "wearing my mom's clothes and makeup, very secretly, not telling anybody." The diagnosis came as a shock (how could it not?) but now, five years later, Steve is living as Stevie and considers herself "the luckiest woman in the world." He shares how it all happened:
When I was 17, I was working my first part-time job at a TV station as a floor cameraman and the person in charge said to me, 'You know, you walk like a queer.' And I thought I was hiding who I was, and I wasn't. I had a kidney stone and we're in the emergency room. The nurse is reading the ultrasound and says, 'Huh, this says you're a female'. It validated everything I had always felt inside.

It's a surprising story but also very touching. Stevie is living with her wife and their six children (which I assume they had before Steve decided to life his life as a woman). Of course, he/she had concerns about the kids but they all said they still love their dad and Stevie still shares an intimate relationship with Debbie, her wife. It's inspiring how much this family has stuck together, despite what some would consider big odds. I really love that they all stuck together and remain a big, happy family.
What do you think of this man who one day found out he was intersex? Are you proud that his family stuck by him no matter what? Share with us in the comments below!
