Keep sending those votes in, there’s still plenty of time to keep Laverne in the lead!
Before I transitioned, I was worried that no one would want to date me after I started living authentically. More than once, MY OWN MOM told me that very thing. To borrow a line from Frances Ha… Undateable.
BZZZZT! Wrong. Since I transitioned I’m getting all the attention I could possibly handle… It’s pretty fucking sweet. Yet another thing I never expected to happen… Another happy transition surprise for me :)
I really needed this tonight.
This is also something my mom said before I transitioned - and an abusive ex-partner who said that she would break up with me if I went on T, and she really gave me the impression that Trans folks are unloveable.
My mom also used attractiveness to understand why I was queer: she once asked me if I dated women because no men would want to date me. (If only she knew about all the guys I dated, and about adventures on Grindr and Squirt!)
They were both so wrong! I’ve had some really amazing, lovely dates since starting transition. And when I date people now, I am myself and that’s the best part.
