Wife Tells Husband She’s Gay But He Has Even Bigger News (VIDEO)

Awww! 63

When Cat Kaufman decided to tell her husband of 20 years, David, that she had some big news, she was quite nervous. After all, she was about to tell him something that would rock his world, shatter their marriage, and most likely destroy their relationship: That she was a lesbian. "I could tell she was nervous," David said when Cat sat him down and told him she had some news to share. After she said that she had been "thinking of dating women," David didn't cry, or explode, or even demand a divorce. Because he had some news too. He was gay as well! Not even the craziest sitcom would try to get away with this scenario, but it happened in real life. And then it got even stranger!

After Cat broke her news to her husband, she received the unexpected answer, "Get out of town! I just figured out I'm gay!" At that point, her nerves turned to excitement and relief, she said.

But there was something else David didn't tell her -- probably because he hadn't quite figured it out himself yet. But a year later, he finally did.

He wasn't gay. He was a woman

"No, I don’t just want to be female. I really am female," David, who became transgender and changed his name to Dani, told CBS News.

Kind of unfortunate that Dani didn't feel she was a lesbian, but a heterosexual woman instead, or things could have worked out perfectly for this pair. Instead, they remained friends and live minutes from each other. Hey, maybe that is perfect.

"We're each other's best friend," says Cat.

Aww, something sweet about this! It really goes to show you that it is the person inside that counts.

What do you think of this story?

LOL @ that Transphobic rant ^^^

Obviously you want troll and get someone to engage you...so I'll bite. II hope you birth or have birth a trans kid. Maybe they can explain to you what it feels like to have been born in the wrong body in ways your tiny little brain can understand. I take it back, I would not wish that evil on your kids, you would probably disown and abandon them because their ideas of what they identify as don't align with yours.

Sounds pretty fucked up to me...

Okie, I do think that some people are born the "wrong sex". I personally view it as a type of "birth defect". I have known people in my life, who even as a child, recognized that they were the "wrong sex" physically. We, as a society are more than willing to "fix" any other "birth defect" that we have the power to "fix", so why not this one?


Also, there have been studies done that found subtle differences between a mans brain, and a woman's brain. Studies have shown, via autopsy, that a lot of men who were transgender had brains that more closely resembled a female brain, than a male brain.


And lastly, I'd like to point out that everyone else who commented on this article called these people "sick" and/or "crazy".  Why? What about this makes them sick, or crazy? Nothing that I personally can see, and I am saddened to see that name calling and unacceptance was/is the first reaction of so many people.

I'm shocked that so many are unaware of the science backing tye plight of transgendered people. Their brainwaves actually show that they have the brain of the gender they identify with, so this trans woman would have shown female brain waves even before any hormonal therapy. Get a clue and get on with your own life.

Holy shit, the trolls are coming, the trolls are coming. Just because you don't understand how it feels to be in the wrong body, doesn't mean it didn't exist. You're all being judgemental assholes towards someone who is just trying to live as she feels she should.

I am a kangaroo. I was born in a human body, but really I'm a kangaroo. And since what we are is fluid, tomorrow I

will be a flying squirel. The endagered kind, that way the tree hugging animal rights nazis will come to my defense.



Sounds dumb, huh.



So does this crap you are spewing about wrong genders.
