Until men fully accept who we are attracted to, until we encourage other men to do the same (w/o judging them) & until we learn how to engage w/ the people we are attracted to - in ways that are healthy & legal - we are putting the people we are attracted to in serious danger.

I'm not going to say I've never been transphobic. I've made the "jokes". There have been times when I've been attracted to a woman & later found out she was trans. & my response was "WAIT! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?" Well, I've learned it means I find that person attractive. That's it.
