Who is Maxine Montoya? 'Bullied' trans army vet reveals she's going in for '4,000 CC boobs'
'I didn't come out as transgender in the military, however, that doesn't mean that I didn't experience dysphoria,' said Maxine, who served 11 years
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Transgender caregiver and former army-medic administrative Staff Sergeant Maxine Montoya, 41, from San Diego, California, transitioned in 2016. But before that, when she served as a male soldier for eleven years until 2011, in both Iraq and Afghanistan, Montoya revealed she was "horrifically bullied."
Montoya only began transitioning after she left the army, when she was in her 30s. She is now on a mission to fund her new "4,000 CC boobs" via OnlyFans to feel "more feminine snd empowered." Maxine, though born male felt more comfortable around girls and being feminine. She, however, adhered to the traditional gender roles and joined the army on her mother's request.
But being in the army was no cake walk for Maxine who in her shocking revelations has said that the "culture didn't accept" her. "I didn't come out as transgender in the military, however, that doesn't mean that I didn't experience dysphoria," she told Daily Mail. Narrating her ordeal, she stated that she once wore a skirt and some makeup and walked around the BX food court to get a spot of lunch. "Word of that got back to someone in my chain of command and I ended up receiving what were flat out threats against my career."
Later, she also had a "closed-door meeting" with her superintendent who verbally abused her. "The superintendent said, 'Do you want to be known as Sergeant Montoya, who shows up to work on time and does his job, or Sergeant Montoya, the man in a dress.' 'Not if it's a bad thing," I replied, deliberately being vague as to which I was referring. At that point, he kicked me out of his office and proceeded to furiously shout at my supervisor, who was also in attendance. It was nothing short of juvenile," Montoya shared, adding, "I asked myself this question: 'Do I ever want to be perceived as male?' And the answer was an immediate no."
Montoya, raised in a "sheltered and conservative family" no longer speaks to her mother, who she says is a "religious fanatic". She added, "She has a lot of her own, untended problems. And because of that she is unable to accept me as her daughter and refuses to have a relationship with me because she doesn't believe that my being transgender is right."
Despite the relentless bullying and being under "horrible depression", besides being diagnosed with cancer in her right kidney (now cured) during her hormonal therapy, Maxine is "happier than ever" and doesn't regret transitioning, which according to her was life-saving. "I'm alive and happy. I feel like for the first time in my life, I am living authentically I am me," she says. "I regret nothing about my transition. It was literally life-saving for me. I had been in a horrible depression. I had suicidal thoughts and everything and transitioning saved my life in more ways than one". Maxine who is now divorced has a daughter Mia, 16.
"I transitioned in 2016 in my thirties, and got my first breast augmentation then," she said. After most recent surgery in 2021, she is at 3,000 CCs. "I am hoping to go up to 4,000 CCs by this time next year," revealed the ex-army vet. "I could talk about my boobs all day, I couldn't be happier with the results I got from my breast augmentation. Why this big? I see this as something empowering. That exaggeration of femininity and what it represents."
