I was born in France, on November 4th,
in the year of 1899, of French parentage, and raised in
Constantinople, Turkey. On the day of my birth, the
physicians were in a quandary as to my sex, not knowing
whether I was a male or female. As this condition created
such a sensation at the time, the French hospital made an
agreement with my family for the purchase of my body after
my death, for the purpose of scientific research.
AS TO MY MODE OF DRESSING
Before my birth, there were four daughters in the family.
As my mother greatly desired the birth of a son, I was
dressed as a boy until I reached the age of twelve years,
and always went to the boys’ classes at school until this
age. While mingling with the boys in all their activities,
the feminine condition would always assert itself in my
When I reached the age of thirteen, my entire life took on a
complete change. One sides of the body started to develop
just like a woman, while the other side developed with every
sign of the male. When this condition became known, it added
to the sensation created at the time of my birth. Not only
was it discovered that I was double sexed, but doubled
bodied as well.
Naturally you are interested in knowing my mode of dressing
at the present time. Sometimes I am dressed as a man, while
at times I dress as a woman. The facial condition varies
most decidedly. On the female side, I have the high check
bone and the teeth are shaped as those in a female. On the
opposite side I have the condition as one would find it in
the male. My arm and leg on the female side of the body are
two inches shorter than those on the male side, the male
side being very muscular and hairy. The female side is
exceedingly supple, as one would expect in the sex.
