17:46 Question of the Week
" A common experience amongst TS/TG people seems to be the attempt by many psychologists to undermine their personal relationships. The non-transsexual person in the relationship is usually strongly advised to leave the relationship as quickly as possible, even if the relationship is a strong, functional and stable one. Why do these people give such advice, particularly when they often have made little or no examination of the nature or dynamics of the relationship? It seems to be practice based on dogma and very limited understanding of our relationships. "
