But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.

Once upon a time when I thought I was a man I went to a Halloween store with my ex-wife and there I saw the most absolutely beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.  She was incredibly tall and had a purple mowhawk, piercings, tattoos, combat boots, the works.

Yeah, she was gorgeous and I was attracted to her, but it was more then that.  I envied her. I envied the strength she projected, her confidence and her femininity. There was a sort of longing I felt when I looked at her, although at the time I couldn’t understand what those feelings meant. 

Today I went shopping for cute Halloween stuff with my girlfriend. I suppose you don’t see many 6’1 foot tall gothy transgender lesbians walking around but there I was, with my piercings, side-cut, tattoos and combat boots. There I was, the woman I was always meant to be.

Who knows, maybe when I was out today I might have caught the eye of the kind of person I used to be, and perhaps they felt that kind of envy and indescribable longing that only transgender people like us can understand.
