Some people are capital-B Black; some people are capital-D Deaf; I'm capital-T Trans. :)
Note: This isn't meant to sound rude or bitter, but it might come off that way. Sometimes, also, I come across as blunt or angry when chatting online. That's just my writing style. I'm nice, I swear! :)
Believe it or not, Trans people can and do have perfectly happy, healthy love lives and sex lives. And for the record, I'm not going to tell you "how" I have sex, or anything along those lines. So don't bother asking - all you'll do is make me angry.
Transgender people are NOT sex objects and I have no patience for those who treat us as such. Try educating yourself about our lives and our community before professing to know us. (Spotting someone who's posing as a Trans person is extremely easy unless they're very familiar with the community.)
If you recognise the FTM on my screen name, odds are I'll enjoy talking to you. Regardless of what you may have seen or heard, FTMs make up roughly 50% of the Trans community. Feel free to ask me anything about being Trans or whatever, but be warned - questions about things like my genitalia and sex life really aren't your business (it doesn't seem to occur to a lot of people that those are seriously personal questions), and while you can ask if you really want to know, I may not tell you. I'm not here to be an exotic experience for you.
I'm a college graduate, with a B.A. in American Studies (focus in popular culture), and am certified as a classroom teacher for grades 1-6. I've decided, however, that I hate the institution of school as a whole and am currently working in child care, which I love.
I'm into computers. I'm a wannabe Linux geek. I dream of building a bunch of computers, stationing them all over my house, and networking them so they do everything for me.
