GUEST,Patsy BS: About This Whole Transgender Thing.... (147* d) RE: BS: About This Whole Transgender Thing.... 29 Apr 14

Could it possibly be that it is the fact that many Transgender people are stunning to look at that makes some people (men)uneasy about it? I was introduced to lady several years ago by an acquaintance who had gone through the whole process of Transgender. Her background was from Indian culture and her own family had issues about her attending any family ceremonies as a woman, the ironic thing was as a man they could accommodate the idea and allow him/her to attend. It was only acceptable for her to appear at family functions as a male as she was from birth despite the fact that she had gone through surgery and hormone treatment. She was elegant, intelligent and absolutely stunning with a model figure to match. Anyone would have been proud to have a daughter as stunning however, eventually in time her father finally accepted her as a daughter. It was her father's blessing that turned things around for her and she is now very happy fulfilled woman. Transgenders do not have an easy time and possibly suffer from bigotry and ignorance more so than a gay person coming out.

In particular I am thinking about the Ladyboys from Bangkok who are stunningly attractive but I bet there are not many hetero men who would admit to admiring their beauty or enjoying a performance or actually admit to being there! April Ashley is another beauty who made the headlines as a Transgender and I remember reading it in disbelief because I had been envious of her classic sophisticated looks when I thought she was a woman! It seems to me that the reason that more men have a problem with it is the deep down fear abd insecurity of being duped. I could be wrong.
