101:43 Question of the Week

"I know reliable statistics are rare in our community, but I wonder what you know about long-term relationship outcomes among transsexual people. I've heard that among post-operative trans women, a handful find cis-gender life partners, a small percentage stay with the life partner they had before transition, about half wind up with each other as life partners, and the other half wind up with no life partner at all. Do you know of any statistics about this subject? Or from your own observations? What about non-operative transsexual women? I think the dynamic may be different because SRS can be the "last straw" that breaks up a relationship. And what about transsexual men?"
(From: Lannie)
