Definitely! And I did not mean to erase them by neglecting to mention them. Trans women (and men) were a vital part of the Stonewall riots and the early gay rights movement, and it is to our everlasting shame as a community that we shut them out to appease straight sensibilities.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that you *were* erasing them. I didn't understand the importance of the T in GLBT history until very recently, so I'm working on understanding that better myself.

I'm not entirely sure it's all about straight sensibilities either, but that might be my sensitivity as a bisexual woman to my own invisibility and erasure.

Seriously. I spent my high school and half of my college years convinced I didn't exist, until I woke up and damn well decided to identify as bi and to hell with everyone else.
