why do you post all that depressing stuff about gay trans guys? I have happily dated gay cis men and I have a bunch of friends who are in happy relationships with cis men. cis gay men were and are always supportive. I don't understand why there is that negative image online. I sent you an link for a video of a happy gay/cis couple but you didn't post it (yet?). Is there an agenda in proving that cis gay men are assholes or what?
Zak: Haha, no, there is not (to my knowledge anyway) an agenda in proving that cis gay men are assholes. In fact, I personally have had experience dating a cis gay man who certainly isn’t an asshole, was totally accepting of me as a guy, and is now one of my close friends. The reason that we post a lot of depressing stuff about gay trans guys is that there’s a lot of depressing stuff out there. Maybe this reflects reality, but it could also be that people are much more likely to post about their problems online than their positive experiences. The reason we haven’t posted your video is probably that it got buried in our queue or accidentally deleted. It certainly isn’t because we adverse to posting positive depictions of gay cis men and gay trans men together. Anyway, if you want to resend us that video, please do! We’ll make sure to check it out and post it.
By the way, if you’re looking for more positive stuff by/for gay trans* men, I’d recommend checking out Warren’s videos on youtube. He isn’t making public videos anymore, but he’s a gay trans* guy with a fairly positive outlook who is happily partnered with a cis man. I know a lot of happy gay trans* guys are out there, and many have had great experiences with cis men. We’ll try to make sure we post some more positive stuff. : )
