I am a transsexual man. This means that I fully identify as a male and live my life as a male. However, I was born with a female body. At the time of my assault, nobody knew I was transsexual; they all thought I was a tomboy.

One individual in chat was initially very supportive. We were telling each other our stories and also getting to know each other, like you do in the beginning of a possible friendship. So, I decided to tell him about my gender identity. Initially, he was very respectful, treating me as a full man and asking appropriate questions to try to get to know me better. Then he warned me that most people on here would not accept me as a man and therefore would not accept me in a men-only support group.

All, is his assessment of this community correct?
