A question for people who have transitioned: have you found that your sexual orientation has changed since you transitioned? If it has, would you consider yourself to be a heterosexual, bisexual or gay?
I'll use myself as an example. Many people who knew me before I transitioned were kind of shocked to see that my sexual orientation appeared to have changed as I transitioned. I had a female partner in my pre-Jillian days. Yet, what the aforementioned people didn't know was that I had dreamed/fantasized about being the female in a relationship with a male. This goes way back, to when I was a teenager -- when I thought the Power That Be wasn't quite sure which gender to make me, so left me in-between. Thing is, I never thought about being a male in a relationship with a male. I was always the female counterpart.
The times being what they were, I got caught up in family life and dedicated myself to that unit . . . until the time came when I was single again, and free to explore the gender issue I had put on the backburner so many years before. As I "came out" to the world en femme and men started showing interest in me, I allowed myself to explore with some of them. They did -- and still do -- saw/see me as a woman. Being with a man felt natural to me. Finally, after all those years, I was in the role I needed. But also, in my own theos
