Trans-Cis-Queer: without words

Over at The New Gay a blogger writes an article about her own experience as a cisgender girl dating a transgender boy, and the problems posed by the available language for relationships from a queer perspective.

Many other transpeople I know have had both positive and negative experiences dating cispeople, and it is always worthwhile to have a discussion about the internal and external complications language poses for such relationships and for queerness general. Our current language is far too limited for the inclusion and recognition of queer relationships and queer lives.
