On a Tuesday in April 2017, Janet Macbeth composed an all-office email. “My story,” read the subject line in Nishnaabemwin, the Ojibwe language.

“Hello everyone,” the email continued in Nishnaabemwin. “My name is Janet.”
I'm a 66 year old male who has been thinking about SRS for many years.  I also was a  full cross dresser for a few years.  I wear a bra, pantyhose and nail polish daily because it just feels right.

I cannot read it. It wants me to subscribe to read it, which I'm not going to do.

That site generally allows a some free reads.  I have often linked to it before.

Anyone else have this problem?

I guess they changed.  Used to be you could read some articles, before you would be asked to pay.  I guess I won't be linking to them again.

Hi everyone. I managed to access the "The Star"s post first go and thought it was my duty as a person on this site to give others who cant read it the opporunity to do so. I have copy+pasted the post to a document if you would like to read it. The thing is that I don't seem able to upload a document to this post. Were to go from here?

If you use mozilla the addon "remove site cookies" can deal with most paywalls like that click the button and all of their cookies are gone including the one that tracks how many stories you have viewed. Another useful addon is "Disable Javascript" which lets you disable javascript on a site by site basis.

I just did a google search on janet macbeth, then clicked the google news option and got the story from the second choice on the results list:

I have also found using "private windows" or similar helps with some sites.  Private windows start open without anything cached or saved etc.

The Toronto Star article goes a lot more into her life and experiences.  That article is in today's Toronto Star, which may be available in libraries and news stands elsewhere.
