I'm sorry, Hunter78. That's a sad story. May she rest in peace, my friend.

Does your story incidentally illustrate that ambient attitudes re trans women were--and remain--troubling in ways that don't always have an obvious answer?. Ways far deeper than using the proper pronouns--or labeling a hooker a hooker, or not. Ways even sex columnist dsavage has a prominent history (and continuing record) of simply getting wrong.

Love vibes to all those who don't fit the cis binary--and those who love them, in whatever still-totally-real-and-worthwhile way. My gut is that it will take large, influential swaths of straights to see trans women as sisters they can love as individuals, even if just platonic best friends sometimes--for much progress to occur for many trans women. Lg folk have seen progress in this regard--to be seen as people first. But here's a full column that considers a trans woman as merely a sexual toy that you don't want to let yourself get too involved with. How dehumanizing. From someone like Dan: sad, shortsighted.

Maybe Dan is just blind to trans issues; a lot of straights are blind to lgb issues. I'm only a soul here figuring it out for me, in my own private way. Out.

@109: because wsos needs to learn--and better at a tender age--that he should show respect to trans women too. Dan failed to teach him that. Instead, Dan and wsos had a frat-boy-type conversation above--both exuding effemmaphobia and trans phobia. The never-humanized OTHER throughout is the trans woman prostitute. Wsos is as complicit as Dan in this.

As my just-prior comments show... Dan's trans phobia is as entrenched as ever. He's just "modernized" it a little bit. What a hypocrite.
