Thought I should share an experience that had me scratching my head. Yesterday I had another “what the hell, why not” moment and dropped by the old restaurant where a few of my old co workers were working to have a beer. Sitting down with my younger friend – and shes bi – I was saying how we are both part of the community…. though not in the gay or bi category. Well, sometimes some people are a little slow picking up on this stuff, right? So I blurted out ” I’m a crossdresser, I’m back at the TG end of the community “, sort to speak. Of course because I have the luck that I do, the old manager and bartender were walking by at the time…. 🙄
Now the young girl just smiled about it saying shes glad I’m not gay, which I thought odd coming from someone bi ( no, shes waaay to young for that girls ) but doesn’t mention anything else at all. The other two dropped by and we chatted and caught up without a word or grin or anything about what I had said. Don’t get me wrong, it was all friendly and all, but I felt like I had lit a firework and nothing happened, just a little fizzle…..
I know I could have received a warm response – which would have made my heart sing – or a cold response, which would have hurt, but I was prepared for that. But no response? Emotionally I did not know what to think about that. When you finally decide to open up you want to talk about it. I’m not sure if I had the easiest acceptance ever, or just a simple refusal to acknowledge what I’d said….. oh well, I still felt good about talking about it there, and it certainly could have been worse. Still, you would like to know where you stand with them afterwards, wouldn’t you?
They sure stared at my much longer hair though!!😅
