I think Stephen Beatty is wonderful for discussing his life in such open terms and giving people who are transgendered a public face who is young and not afraid to say exactly what they feel and think. I have to say though when I start thinking about the sexual things related to all of this and to Chaz Bono it kind of blows my mind. I have written here previously about how when Chaz was Chastity she was a lesbian involved with a woman who is also a lesbian. Chaz becomes a man but the woman is still a lesbian. How does that work? Obviously not well, but I think that was a personality thing rather than a bits and pieces thing.

Now, you have Stephen Beatty who was Kathlyn. So, Kathlyn liked men, but now Kathlyn has become a man and still likes men so as Stephen says, he is gay and transgendered. So, when he was Kathlyn he would not have been attracted to heterosexual men? Just gay men because he was a gay man living in a woman's body?
This makes more sense in the early morning. Try to think about all of this when you are half-crocked at night and it is way more confusing.
Anyway, Stephen has a new boyfriend who made Stephen socks for Christmas and mailed them to him. For some reason Stephen is afraid of socks. If I were him I would be more afraid of making his dad angry and being forced to watch Ishtar and scenes with Madonna from Dick Tracy on a continuous loop in the punishment room.
