I suck at writing about myself like this, but I’ll give it the good old college try. My name is Kaylee Scruggs and I’ve had some interesting experiences in my life. I am a trans woman and a bit of an odd one.
I am physicist and philosopher by education and a supposed computer expert by experience. I am a writer, blogger, and In the past, I have been a computer programmer, tester of dirt, and operator of an odd laser printer. I am very passionate about social justice issues. When I grow up, I want to become a minister and chaplain. I live in Weatherly, which gives me many opportunities to see the beauty of of this area, with my dog and several cats.
I clean up nice and have the manners for the fanciest of dinners, but don’t let that fool you. I’m a redneck under it all, although a very liberal one. To give you an idea of me, I’ll relate one of my favorite stories. One winter Sunday, after church, I spot a car on the side of the road with a flat tire. I pull up behind the car and realize that it’s someone from church. So, in a skirt, pantyhose, and flats, proceed to change the tire. Even better, some muscle man tried before me and couldn’t get the lug nuts to break. Brains beat brawn.
I suppose I ought to say something about my spirituality. I am an Episcopalian and Celtic Christian. I have been many things, but most recently, a pagan. Having been a pagan for so long has made me a better Christian. If you respect my religious choices, I’ll respect yours, no matter how different they are from mine. Most of my closest friends have spiritualities that are very different from mine, and I would not want it any other way.
Unlike nearly every other trans person I’ve met, I can’t say that I knew that I was trans from birth. Maybe I did and maybe I didn’t, but because I suffered a lot of abuse when I was very young, I don’t remember much from back then. For me, the first time I realized I was a woman was about age 13. Took even longer for me to fully feel and understand what it meant. It was all head knowledge until about 33. I eased into it as well.
Well, that’s all I can think of to share. If you want to know more about some part of me, please let me know.
