    is somebody to just rant at.

    I have been so thankful for having started reading the diaries of the trans community here because it meant that when friends started drifting out of the closet post-college I could be a person to just rant at without needing to be put through Trans 101 to understand why something might matter That Much.

    Besides the fact that well, obviously someone DOES care if they put themselves through Trans 101 before they knew they were close to anyone who actually was. I will always cherish the memory of the reaction I got out of one of them pre-Coming-Out when I mentioned some things that made it clear I was very much going to be a personal ally when that Coming Out eventually occurred.

    Part of the reason I've been so emotionally wiped out is that I've been an outsider available for talking at through all this.
