Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, Fallon Fox, has come out as transgender. The fighter, who has been perceived as a woman decided to come forward because she could not hide who she is anymore. “For years I’ve known at some point it’s very likely the shoe would drop,” Fox said. “Maybe someone would guess that I’m trans. Maybe they would know me from my life before I transitioned. I’ve been waiting for that phone call to happen.” Fox spent time going to conversion therapy under her father’s wishes. There, the therapist attempted to convince her she was a gay male. After several years of battling with this issue and thoughts of suicide, Fox decided to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Although the fighter says this has been the best decision of her life, she is now facing an investigation by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation to determine if her license is still valid being transgender. “I’m technically, legally, physically, and mentally female. Everything about me is female. I happen to fall into the transgender category, but I’d rather describe myself as a woman first, transsexual woman second.” [www.huffingtonpost.com]
