When it first happened, Jack tried to hide it. He wore bulky clothes to hide the fact that from the neck down he now had the body of his co-worker, Martha. No matter what he did, people would call him “ma’am” or “miss.” He wondered how Martha was handling it, and was surprised to find that she had embraced his body. She cut her hair short and stopped wearing makeup. She looked, well, like a guy. Jack began to wonder if he should do the same. He thought about growing his hair out, he started making sure he was always clean shaven. He knew he wasn’t ready to start wearing skirts or dresses, so he started with some yoga pants and a top that showed off his figure instead of trying to hide it. He also wasn’t sure if he was ready for makeup. He may have still had his head, but he realized that he had to admit that he was a woman now. For all intents and purposes, he WAS a woman now. He hoped he’d be able to switch back one day, but for the time being, he was accepting this.
