In our transgender community there never seems to be a shortage of interesting, thought provoking articles and posts.
I found this one to be particularly interesting from several different viewpoints. It's called "I Am The Transsexual Your Boyfriend Wants to Be With."
Here's an excerpt: “I wonder if you had leveled with me about your intrigue with these men who look like women, or women with the parts of men, I wouldn’t be so scared. Scared of not knowing you, of life as the fool who blindly trusts while you meet escorts, the partner who will never understand you or your fascination with what I cruelly call “things.”
As I said, this article will take you in more than a couple different directions and it is worth a read here.
