From Glaad - Let's Stop Shaming Trans Women and the men Who Love Them

Great article but I just want to reiterate the point: We are just as deserving of love and affection as anyone else. Now, I understand some people are specifically attracted to trans women and that is fine... After all I like redheads. The problem comes when you see things like "scandal" and "secret affair" attracted to these relationships. It is as if there is something to hide because you know, we really are men and loving us or having sex with us makes you gay (another absolutely horrific label!) [sarcasm].

People have this idea that we are freaks or that men who are attracted to us have some kind of weird sexual fetish. This is the mentality that needs to stop. Hopefully it will as people become more accepting but that isn't enough. We need to stand up and speak out. We are human beings who deserve to be treated with respect. I also think it is great that some people are standing up and saying enough is enough... Anywho, read the article on Glaad's website:
