‘Warrior princess’: Former Navy SEAL is now a woman

Kristn beckFormer U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Beck fought 20 years for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” and now wants his own true happiness: living life as the woman he always wanted to be.

Purple Heart recipient Chris Beck retired in 2011 and is now Kristin Beck who wrote a book about her life, “Warrior Princess: A U.S. Navy SEAL’s Journey to Coming out Transgender.”

Beck gave an exclusive interview to CNN’s Anderson Cooper describing the inner battle of living life trapped in the body of a man.

She discussed life as a SEAL and serving overseas, deployed months and months at a time with her brothers in arms, fighting and burying her true inner identity, hoping to “cure” herself.

“I gave true brotherhood,” she told Anderson. “I did my best, 150% all the time, and I gave strength and honor and my full brotherhood to every military person I ever worked with.”

But now Beck is out, and she wants people to leave her in peace as she starts to finally live free of her secret.

CNN reported:

“There’s a lot of prejudice out there. There’s been a lot of transgender people who are killed for prejudice, for hatred. When the book came out — some amazing support and some amazing praises — but also some pretty amazing bigotry and hatred.”

Beck says she doesn’t need people to love, or even like, her.

“But I don’t want you to beat me up and kill me. You don’t have to like me, I don’t care. But please don’t kill me.”.

    What better way to get people to leave you alone than to go on CNN and tell your twisted story to the whole world. This country is no longer sick and dying. It's dead.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. It's time for you. I am now going through very similar issues. Dina-formerly David

    "You don’t have to like me, I don’t care. But please don’t kill me.” –This guy was actually once a SEAL?
