Too funny – things could be much worse, though. At least you’re on the left side of the equation in that comic. I have the aspiration to be “left-sided” but only the ability to be “right sided”…
Hello. This is my first post here even though I’ve been visiting your site for over two years. My partner is a transman. We’ve been together for three years, and living together for the last two. He transitioned while working at his current job, (over 12 years ago), so he’s completely out at work. On the flip side, he’s completely not out socially. Only one very close friend knows his history, and that is only because I absolutely had to have someone to talk to about the changes in my life. It was actually your book, She’s Not the Man I Married, that helped me articulate what I was feeling – I was in a closet for the first time in my life, at 44, and needed support.
The internet can be a wonderful place, and I’ve been able to find many resources to help me understand more about transgender issues. My sweetheart recommended Jamison Green’s book, Becoming a Visible Man, as a place for me to start learning more about what being a transman was like. He also took me to the local transgender center, and I have met many wonderful people there. The peer-counseling group for Significant Others was resurrected, and in time I became one of the facilitators for the group. The peer group for transman, Some Transgenders Are Guys, adopted me as an unofficial mom.
So… Please consider this an extremely belated “Thank You” for all of the thoughtful blog posts you have typed up and sent out into the wilds of the internet. And also a “Thank You” for the fun posts as well. I loved Captain Cross-Dresser.
I share my life with cats. I teach science at a public middle school. I live with and love a trans partner. I’m trying to make the world kinder and safer place for my trans friends and their significant others. And I read you blog. And sometimes, I type.
And, yes, I need an edit button to fix my spelling and grammar mistakes!
