I dated a FTM guy for almost two years. That experience really made me think about gender and gender identity. Anyway, I've become really vocal about my support for trans and GQ people.
At work they've started to ask me questions about transsexuality and different gender identities. Generally I try to answer as honestly as possible- because I really think that things are changing. It's taking a while, and it's gonna have to happen under the radar, but things will change.
If all of us that support T or GQ people speak out and start dialogue about this topic, we can expand acceptance or at least tolerance.
