Maybe he realized that dream after all, though not in New York.
In Lakewood, Ohio, a transgender woman was arrested for shoplifting. During her questioning, an officer played Aerosmith's "Dude Looks Like A Lady."
Hmm...When I ended my relationship with Dominick, he called every day and played that song. When I didn't pick up his call, he left the song on my voice mail. In doing that, of course, he confirmed one of the reasons why I broke it off: his immaturity. And he revealed what I always suspected to be his real attitude about me, and trans people.
Everyone told me to ignore him. I did, but he escalated his harassment for the next two years: The dumb jokes and slurs turned into spreading false rumors about me and threatening that he would make my life so miserable that a refrigerator box would seem like the Waldorf-Astoria.
Well, if he's in Ohio or someplace else, I should count my blessings--but pity the next trans person who crosses his path.
