INDEX OF AUTHORS

I have permitted my heart to go out to a friend I have always 

experienced most exalted feelings, and have been made better by 

them morally, mentally, and spiritually. Love is with me a 

religion." 

 

With regard to her attitude toward the other sex, she writes: "I 

have never felt a dislike for men, but have good comrades among 

them. During my childhood I associated with both girls and boys, 

enjoying them all, but wondering why the girls cared to flirt 

with boys. Later in life I have had other friendships with men, 

some of whom cared for me, much to my regret, for, naturally, I 

do not care to marry." 

 

She is a musician, and herself attributes her nature in part to 

artistic temperament. She is of good intelligence, and shows 

remarkable talent for various branches of physical science. She 

is about 5 feet 4 inches in height, and her features are rather 

large. The pelvic measurements are normal, and the external 

sexual organs are fairly normal in most respects, though somewhat 

small. At a period ten years subsequent to the date of this 

history, further examination, under anesthetics, by a 

gynecologist, showed no traces of ovary on one side. The general 

conformation of the body is feminine. But with arms, palms up, 

extended in front of her with inner sides of hands touching, she 

cannot bring the inner sides of forearms together, as nearly 

every woman can, showing that the feminine angle of arm is lost. 

 

She is left-handed and shows a better development throughout on 

the left side. She is quiet and dignified, but has many boyish 

tricks of manner and speech which seem to be instinctive; she 

tries to watch herself continually, however, in order to avoid 

them, affecting feminine ways and feminine interests, but always 

being conscious of an effort in so doing. 

 

Miss M. can see nothing wrong in her feelings; and, until, at the 

age of 28, she came across the translation of Krafft-Ebing's 

book, she had no idea "that feelings like mine were 'under the 

ban of society' as he puts it, or were considered unnatural and 

depraved." She would like to help to bring light on the subject 

and to lift the shadow from other lives. "I emphatically 

protest," she says, "against the uselessness and the inhumanity 

of attempts to 'cure' inverts. I am quite sure they have perfect 

right to live in freedom and happiness as long as they live 

unselfish lives. One must bear in mind that it is the soul that 

needs to be satisfied, and not merely the senses."
