In the area where I currently live, I didn't think that I would ever experience transphobia first hand. Phoenix is pretty progressive and most people who do know that I'm transgender are either supportive or don't comment too much about it. It actually wasn't until I started getting into the dating scene that I started experiencing transphobia first-hand. Before you read these experiences, I want you to understand that there are people in the world who simply don't understand what it is to be transgender, and quite often they don't intend to say transphobic things.
Woo, no big surprise there, right? I know. The purpose of this post is to bring it back to the front of your mind that when going through a transition, your changes are different than others, and you need to embrace them.
