There's no shame in trans attraction until someone who is trans attracted believes their trans attraction is wrong.
I understand who and what transgender and trans attracted people are. I relate to them from there. They feel that, then can't help but express love for me. I'm loving them after all.
A long exchange of heartbreak and struggle that didn't have to be, but was. TRIGGER WARNING: some language invalidates and erases the trans experience. Be advised.
The best cis-trans relationships start with the self. From there, any relationship is possible.
At one time I tried to suppress this attraction in every possible way, but it always ended in failure (and every day, I am more glad that I did not succeed in suppressing).
