I am in my 50s and have been on several dating sites over the last few years. And, yeah, not for me. Some guys are fake and others only want a hook up. I am no prude and sometimes a hook up is ok, but I am just looking for someone to hang out with, talk to, go to a movie, concerts (someday). I have found no one interested in this on the dating sites. I gave up on those awhile ago. However, I do have a funny story. Eharmony could not find a match for me and even stated this rarely happens we are sorry. LOL! Hmmmmmm........Good story, hang in there, I'm trying!!

I agree 100%!!! Sex now at 53 is better than I ever could imagined. I left an abusive husband at age 36 that I met when I was 13. And I never knew I could feel this way. Bravo to the Gen X women that are now finally feeling the things we should have years ago! We all got this girls however we would like it. lol!!

I am writing this with tears in my eyes. As a close relative to a trans (in secret at this time). This is appalling!!!! How brave of Kai to said what was needed to be said ! And to Amber as well. I can see how this is possible in Texas but it should not matter where you live. We are all people including all trans kids. And deserve the right to be who they are without repercussions and certainly without criminal charges and lack of support from their community. I am hopeful this will not pass. I continue to support a child's/person's right to be whomever they are meant to be. Thank you Jim!

Horrifying. As a former practicing catholic and now a mental health nurse, this is troubling. I do think she should have been treated for mental illness first it seems she had many mental health issues. Then, possibly if that did not work go to the church. What a tragedy that she died so young. Thank you for a good story.

I am so glad you got out. So did I after 20+ years. I hope young girls read your story and take heart. There are plenty of fish in the sea and no none deserves to be abused physically, mentally, or emotionally. Thank you!

In the year 2021 this is very disturbing. I have friends and relatives that are transgender. Kids have enough problems just being kids and the ones that are trans even more. Not to mention the healing from the last 4 years with Trump in the White House. This is unacceptable in my opinion and almost censorship. We should be embracing all our children no matter what. I guess parents could keep their child from being exposed to the book. But, that to me sets us back many years and is damaging to the future of our children. Thanks Jim great as usual!!

Thanks as always Jim. I worked in a doctor's office in the early 90s in the small racist town I grew up in and the only radio station I could get was a local AM station which promoted and played Rush Limbaugh's disgusting radio show. We had no choice but to listen to it because of the doctor we worked for at the time. I, too, am glad he is gone. And I was fired by the doctor from Texas I worked for at the time because I could not put up with his ignorant views and racist comments and made this known. He is now deceased as well. I can only hope for a better future for our children and grandchildren.
