      As a cisgendered man, I really didn't have a very good understanding of transfolk and the issues that concern them until I started following Robyn.  That's sad to say, since I'm gay and really should have known better.  But I've learned a lot from this diarist and the other trans members of this site.  I suspect you will too.

          Reading your Friday diaries has become part of my weekly routine, and I've probably learned more from them than from pretty much any other diary series here on DK.  I couldn't even begin to catalogue all of the facts about transpeople you've taught me.  To cite just one example of my stunning ignorance, I didn't realize how many transpeople are gay or lesbian.  When I started reading your diaries, I just assumed you were straight.  

          I say all this not to flatter you (although some flattery is probably in order :-)), but to give you an idea of the kind of need you're filling here.  I'm a gay man living in San Francisco, and if I can be this clueless about the trans community, one can only imagine how clueless the rest of the world is.  I know you probably feel like you're beating your head against a brick wall at times, but really do I think you're succeeding at educating some people.  So I guess I'd just urge you to keep it up.
