Dear Prudie, Several years ago I dated a woman named “Rhonda” for three months.
(Luckily we hadn’t been yet.) It wasn’t her transsexuality that ended the relationship, but her deception; I am not a transphobic person.
I always respected her as a person, but I was definitely worried about what other people would say or think about us together.
I knew our relationship would turn the heads of my loved ones, but over time I learned to adopt Ty’s nonchalance to other people’s negativity and critical perception of my life choices.
Now, living as a man who is in a relationship with a woman, Chaz is considered by society to be straight.
Many people don't think this through when a friend or loved one undergoes a transsexual transition.
