Good article and glad to see people being and doing who they are and successful at it. But the end of the article I thought was BS. Why are so many people hung up on others sexual orientation?

Very good article, except for this part:

"He is seen as a bit of a maverick, someone who has embraced his sexuality without any need for explanation or justification."

This has nothing whatever to do with his sexuality because, as noted later in the article, they don't know what his sexuality is.

FaFoxy Uh She's NOT a she, she is a HE. Just because someone is convincing in clothes and make up of the opposite gender DOESN'T make them the other gender. This guy is a Crossdresser a convincing crossdresser but still just a crossdresser, he has NO Breast, NO Vagina and No Female gender Identity there is NOTHING about him that would make anyone consider this guy a women.

Your confusing body parts as being a gender indicator. Gender is in the brain not dependent on breast, vagina or penis. Actually crossdressing is a gender variant. Gender is not a matter of black and white but rather an extensive gray area between black and white.

And you obviously didn't read my entire post as I stated this guy DOESN'T Identifies as female, he's a gay guy who cross dresses. Also whether you like it or not in our society gender is based on whats between ones legs as well has how one Identifies.

You state rather strogly the man is gay. Do you have proof of that statement? It says in the article he does not discuss is sexual orientation. So what's your basis for your statement?

I known nothing about gay culture really ? You idiot I am gay, and only like other women. For your 411 people who identify as gay, their sexuality is set they are attracted to the same sex thats the whole jest of what it means to be gay.

Jack I'm quite aware of what drag queens prefer when doing drag, but this guy isn't a drag performer now is he. Drag queens exaggerate the female form which isn't what this guy does he's a simple crossdresser, who has found a way to do his crossdressing in the fashion world and make a living at it which is fine. My whole point from my first post is that regardless of how he is dressed he is still a he clothes don't change ones gender and to pretend they do is pure fantasy.

It doesn't matter what they prefer or how they're dressed. They are men and,if anything,they should be addressed with male pronouns, same as crossdressers and other tee gees.

As a simple matter of respect and human dignity, people should be addresed as they wish to be, not as you wish to treat them.

Very pretty;however,I suspect he is more an 'opportunist' than a true transgender,since he poses as both male and female.A feminine male,at best.Nothing wrong with that;but,not a true transgender,in my opinion.

As far as I know she's not transgender. I don't think she claimed to be.

That sounds nice and all that stuff, but it's not realistic nor practical. It's make believe, and nothing more. If it's a guy, then it's he, him, Mr. and so on. If he's got a d*ck, he's a guy. Doesn't matter what his brain is thinking at that moment, I'll never call a guy in a dress or anything else - her, she and so on. Period.
Simple enough, but tee gees live in fantasy land and cannot understand they are nothing special. You are what you are, and that's that.
