I remember back when I first started leaving voice messages; I would stutter and often times just hang up the phone hoping she would see the "missed call" and call me back (which rarely happened).Now, what I'm about tell you are statements I've used that have worked a huge percentage of the time.We are not objects to have secret sex with, to discard and to laugh at on the radio or the gossip blogosphere.
I’ve stood witness to many so-called scandals, mostly published on gossip blogs, where passing interactions with trans women spawn hundreds of headlines, particularly for a man with fame and social capital.For a man to be associated with a trans women, in effect, is to say that he is no longer a “real” man (as if such a thing exists) because he sleeps with “fake” women (as if such a thing exists).
