"She [his wife] doesn’t like it so much when I look female. She said it feels like there’s another woman here with us when I’m in full girly-girl mode. I can’t help but feel flattered by her feeling that way because that means Anna exists. Anna is real and she looks like a woman."

Translation: my wife has stated her discomfort but instead of caring about her feelings, i enjoy the validation that i so desperately seek and i keep doing it anyway"
