I don't know if you have noticed this before but if you look in the forum list you will find that there is a forum Gay/Bi/Trans
so to me that means any question on this issue has already been answered.
... when it comes to a woman actually declaring herself to be a male survivor, and mingling and commiserating with us as if she herself was an abused boy, I cannot seem to accept this.
At the time of the abuse she was physically a boy and identified as a boy. And since we are here trying to work through issues in our past I don't see a problem. Was the individual disrespectful to you? edit: I see Sam posted after I saw the the OP's post but before my post.
