What happens when we say something out loud? Does it become more real? Is it any less really when we keep it to ourselves?

After spending over $600,000 to look like a human Ken doll, Rodrigo Alves has just come out as a transgender woman.
The Celebrity Big Brother contestant tells Sunday people, “It feels amazing to finally tell the world I’m a girl.”
“I’m known as Ken but inside I’ve always felt like Barbie.”
Alves, who now goes by Roddy and uses the pronouns “she” and “her,” says she’s has been taking hormone injections to give her more feminine hips and now wears a D-cup bra.
“I finally feel like the real me,” Roddy says. “Glamorous, beautiful and feminine.”
“For years I tried to live my life as a man,” she continues. “I had a fake six pack put in, I had fake muscles in my arms but I was lying to myself. I’m a woman and have always had a feminine brain. Now my body matches my mind.”
Over the years, Roddy has had over 100 cosmetic surgeries, including liposuction, gel fillers, facelifts, and 11 rhinoplasties. In 2018, she had four ribs removed to slim down her waist.
And she’s not finished yet.
“I’m having silicone breast implants,” Roddy says. “I’ll be able to wear dresses that show my cleavage and look sexy. I’m very excited.”
