Tunisian footballer tells his story with transgender and societal outlook
This was not easy for Mleih, 37, who lives between dreams of a new life and the outlook of the conservative society Tunisia.

Mleih was the oldest of an articulated experience that had profound effects on his reality, which is the experience of changing his sex and moving from the female world to the male world.

Years have passed since the case of the Tunisian female soccer player, Fatima Mleih, who caused a wide stir in social and sports circles alike when she decided to change her gender and turn into a man, if it was a decision by the weight of the mountains, but Mohamed Mleih, the young convert, still mentions its details.

Mleih said in an interview with “Sky News Arabia” that he discovered his masculine tendencies and signs of roughness and masculinity without disclosing this in a conservative society, and this was the main reason for changing his sex and joining men And in 2013, after he obtained a court ruling, the first of its kind in Tunisia, to change his gender and identity documents.

Upon birth in the city of Tataouine (in the far south of Tunisia), the family named their newborn child “Fatima”, and she was registered in the civil status books as a female.

Fatima grew up before discovering that she had masculine features and physical strength that surpassed other girls of her gender, before she made sure of that when she joined the women’s soccer team and here was the critical turning point in her life.

Mleih said, “I used to feel from an early age that I was a boy and not a girl, and the medical examinations increased my doubts before I disclosed what I feel to my family members.”

He adds: “Although going back to the past does not appeal to me, I admit well that I never felt that I was a female, my features and even my behavior tended more towards rough sex, and when I chose to play football, my certainty that I was a man increased with the delay of implementation, until I decided to get rid From my obsessions forever. “

Harsh look

And the young man, whose masculine features seem like his chin hair and athletic body, goes on: “I made my decision on my own and found great psychological relief after him. They support, and I have increased with certainty that I made the right decision and did not continue on the wrong path, a road that had no end.

He continued: “I had medical examinations and consulted with my doctor, who assured me that the operation that I will undergo is normal for those who live in a similar situation. I have turned into a man and I now feel comfortable and reassured despite what sometimes shames me from the looks of some, but I do not care as long as I live in harmony with my body and soul.”

In addition to his work in a sports institution, after his retirement from football in 2013, Mleih obtained a football coach certificate and received an offer to train a women’s football club last year.

He adds about that: “I have many ambitions like every young man and I dream one day to go through the experience of training in football. I put the difficult experience that I went through behind my back. I received an offer to train a women’s team, but I preferred to postpone the experience.”

As for his private life, he says: “I have many friends who are young men and women. I dedicate the most time to my family and I love watching European football leagues.”
