For a little background, I’ve been hanging out in the Transgender Resource Center in Second Life for a bit. My First Life profile there also states that I’m a crossdresser, and what my physical gender is.
Well, I’ve gotten it three or four times of people asking me where I am in transition, how long I have been, or when I’m planning on starting.
While it’s interesting that they do take me as female (my SL presentation is femme, by choice), I’m a combination of irritated and, well, disturbed a bit when they assume that I’m transexual. Not badly so yet, but still.
Before you ask, yes, most of the people there are in transition, been through transition, or planning on going through it.
Right now, I’m being polite about it. I wonder how much I can handle before I become not so?
