One of the things I hate about telling people I'm transgender is that they seem to automatically then assume that every characteristic or trait that I have that does not conform to a stereotypical female is because I'm transgender.
For example, last week, my spouse was looking particularly smashing in an outfit she was wearing and I complimented her by telling her that she looked "hot" and looking her over approvingly. My mother in law (hereinafter MIL) commented, "Denise, you still have a little "man" in you". Now, I really love MIL; she's a sweet old lady. But that comment totally annoyed me. I retorted (I hope not too meanly), "Well, possibly, especially if you assume that one woman cannot be attracted to another."
