Janelle Villapando January 3, Washboard-Abs-No-Face and unsolicited dick pics that most women, unfortunately, receive. But searching for Mr. In terms of looks, I prefer taller guys. They view me as exotic, a kink, something new to try. But I finally reached my limit when one of my dates bumped into someone he knew when we were together.

A lot of people who avoid dating trans people focus on the dysphoria, and envy and all of that stuff, but in my experience, it helps you grow closer knowing you share similar problems, that you got each others' backs when you're misgendered, and you both understand each others' struggles.
Once I got out of the area I started processing what had happened. I knew that it was all going too well for him to even be interested in me. That trans visibility deserves a safe space to exist which can then foster easier acceptance from others.
