"abitchforjustice": Some time ago, I posted a piece entitled "When Will Trans-Attracted Folks Get It?"...the following video appears to be an answer to my post, with a trans-attracted man who, it seems, DOES "get it".
One of my young sheroes, Ms. Diamond Stylz, has produced this video, which is an interview she's given to a trans-attracted man who gives an in depth view of what he's gone through in a transition of his own. to come to a true understanding of self and his love for the transgender woman.
This video offering will certainly serve as an education for many who steadfastly insist that "transgender women (and men) are only a fetish" for those who profess desire for us and therefore "transgenders will never find those who will commit to them in long term relationships". It can also serve as a guide to young transgender-loving men (and women, in the case of FTMs) who are out there, fearing to be open about their desires; it will let them know that they are not alone, as well as make them aware that when they are open with those desires, the world will not come apart, and they will find FREEDOM of life, spirit and mental space. This fear has been at the heart of trans-attracted folks' lack of visibility, and what made it so hard for Ms. Stylz to find someone willing to participate in such an interview; KUDOS to Ms. Stylz for having gotten Troy to do it, and KUDOS to him for sharing this part of his life and struggles with us, providing a rare glimpse into the mind of the trans-attracted!
I'll leave you all to watch it now...ENJOY! (Your comments in this much needed conversation are very welcome to me, and I'm sure, Ms. Stylz...)
Welcome to the blog that is intended for education, information, entertainment, news and advancement...and it's all about the Transgender community! If you're a transgender individual, I hope it provides you with all of the above as well as empowerment; if you're not a transgender, hopefully this blog will help in giving you a better understanding of the transgender community and that community's issues, achievements/abilities, "temperaments" and diversity. Overall, I hope your visit proves to be an interesting one.
Remember: "Communication is the Doorway through which Understanding may Walk."
