    This is my first time here and it seems like a safe place to discuss our life's struggles. I am a transsexual women that transitioned later in life. I am divorced with two college kids.

    I have always been attracted to women and my transition didn't change that. My experience, though has been that a lot of lesbian women are kind of hostile to trans woman.

    I was wondering people would help me understand this.

    Hi. Welcome to EC. I hope you'll find good help here.

    I have no real life experience with the lesbian mindset as such but I suspect it's not much different than encountering any other nasty individuals. They have no qualms about expressing their hurtful opinions and their cohorts just go along with it whether they agree or not.

    Whatever the reason for their hostility, whether it was ignorance, fear of the unknown/unfamiliar, try to separate what you know and value about yourself from their behaviour which is really nothing more than them judging a book by its cover.

    Do you have opportunities to meet new people? I would seek out some more enlightened, broad minded, considerate women if I were you.
