    So, this month's Out magazine floored me: It was great to see a national publication put almost all its emphasis on the T in LGBT. Also, with so many CUTE ftm "trans fags" in it i realized that i think i'm more attracted to masculinity for its own sake than the innate gender of the masculine individual.

    this is what i mean: there were SO MANY pics of ftm's, and so many of them were attractive in one way or another, that as i was flipping through admiring all the other pics i lost track of which were pictures of born men and which ones were ftm's... many of the ftm's were so authentically masculine that it became almost impossible to look at all the faces and know for sure who was born with which parts. i had a panicky moment of, "wait?! which ones are really boys???!" then i had another moment of, "who really cares if the dude is hot?"

    anyone else have any experiences/thoughts to share about this?

    I often find myself attracted to woman who display stereotypical masculine traits. Butch lesbians, thicker bodied women with a 'masculine' walk, muscular women (but not the freakishly huge ones, just like I'm not attracted to freakishly huge men...except for chuckystud, I would simply BEG to have sex with him).

    Like you said, it's having an attraction to masculinity for its own sake moreso than to the innate gender of the masculine individual.

    And honestly, I don't keep posting after you cause I'm stalking you...honest, hehe.

    i remember once, before i started getting facial hair and was constantly getting hit on by straight guys and lesbians who thought me female, that there was this HOT HOT guy at the club, incredible arms... i walked over and we started talking. finally i was like, "so, sexy, what's your name?"

    "i thought you were a john or a michael."
    "i thought you were a britney or a christy."

    we bought each other a drink and called it a night. but that was back in like 1995 and where i was living the t in lgbt was all but invisible. 13 years later i wonder if we'd have kept talking?
