I read her tweet and rolled my eyes so hard they almost rolled out of my head. So in the spirit of good comedy, I created the translol hashtag to give my fellow trans people a chance to tell the trans jokes for a change. You know, the only jokes about us that are actually funny.

Celibacy — for our purposes, defined as abstaining from intercourse — is usually left out of open, sex-positive talk, reserved for the devoutly religious. But what I found out is that the choice to not have sex is just as personal and individual as the decision to have it — and religion is only one of many reasons for making that choice. A discovery of self, a desire for a deeper-than-sex connection, and a redirection of time and energy were expressed across the conversations I had.
Age 42, was celibate from May —April After a bad breakup, I needed to take a moment to look at the choices I was making regarding the men I allowed in my life. A pattern emerged: most of my relationships began not by going on dates and getting to know one another, but as hook-ups.

I went to Babeland and the Pleasure Chest and spoke to their staff about different vibrators and dildos and amassed quite a collection of toys that I could use on myself. It was the best way to learn about my body, what got me off, what felt good, [and] what was boring.
One night we started making out — one thing led to another and we had sex. It felt very natural. Age 31, was celibate until marriage in January That being said, I personally wanted to remain celibate until marriage because of what I was exposed to while growing up.

We, as a society, have not created a space for men to openly express their desire to be with trans women. We tell men to keep their attraction to trans women secret, to limit it to the internet, frame it as a passing fetish or transaction. Thousands of words have been dedicated to analyzing whether such and such famous man is now suspect, merely because he took a photo with a fan who happened to be a trans woman.
This questioning has led many well-known men to adamantly defend their heterosexuality and has tarnished the reputation and careers of others. When a man can be shamed merely for interacting with a trans women — whether it be through a photograph, a sex tape or correspondences — what does this say about how society views trans women? More important, what does this do to trans women? This pervasive ideology says that trans women are shameful, that trans women are not worthy of being seen and that trans women must remain a secret — invisible and disposable.
