|Buck explained all that, saying he's gone the male-hormones-and- chest-reduction route, but he's held on to his vagina "because I didn't think that particular procedure was going to work for me. It's not as advanced as male-to-female surgery. And I don't need a piece of meat between my legs that doesn't work."|

it's so frustrating that he can say "I don't want to be with you if you're going to be like this..." you have always been like this!!! oh, anyway. I'm just sorry that he's not being supportive.
I have a sweet friend who is a dyke but more and more she identifies as a fag. And she is such a fag!!!!! I'm glad I know her; I'm glad that the more I know, the more transparent the lines around gender and sexuality become. It's very freeing, even for someone like me who is maybe only 10% gender queer and 40% sexuality queer, if that makes any sense.

It is also amazing how much he gets centred on himself & transitioning, and then will say 'omg! we're going to have a baby!'. It is very exciting.
I'm glad that mshollyk started this thread & feels welcome here, cause I think my partner is scared off because it is a 'mothering' website. Hmmmm...
In any case, I just wanted to say 'hi' & wish everyone luck with their situations.
