Dinner with Isabelle

Isabelle is the type of person that trans people would be very happy to be paired with. She sees an individual and not a gender and although happily married to a man and having a young son, she confided that she previously dated some women in her past. Over dinner I told her that she was a rare pearl in that regard in her ability to focus on what constitutes a person rather than the packaging.

It doesn't hurt of course that she is 36 and has been spared the conditioning some of us underwent but there is also a positive energy and zest for life that gives her a wonderful resilience and a sense of perspective.

If I am at all positive about future generations, it is precisely because of people like her.
