wonder if anyone here is in the same boat. i've been chatting with an online friend, she is very kind and is open about being a lesbian. i have started to become bi-curious and wanted to try relationships with women. however, she recently confided in me that she used to be a boy and started HRT when she was a teenager. this struck me as a complete surprise because i've seen 1 picture of her and she seemed to pass and her voice is very feminine. she is classic libfem, "sex work is work", puts her pronouns in her display name, but i still can't help but feel blindsided.
just wanted to vent here, i suppose.
