About My Husband Betty
- Author Helen Boyd is a happily married woman whose husband enjoys sharing her wardrobe.
- the best parts of “My Husband Betty” were the real stories and interviews of people who are involved in and affected by CD/TG life, as well as the chapters on feminism and LGBT intersectionality.
- Boyd understands the complex feelings and grief work that can affect a marriage, as well as the potential benefits of making this work.
- She provides some good information about cross-dressers, but the book seems to be one long whine about how difficult it is even to know cross-dressers, how they are demeaning “real” women by their actions, and how much trouble they are.
- In “My Husband Betty” Helen Boyd clears up a lot of misconceptions that cross-dressing men have of themselves and their way of relating to women.
- It also clears up a lot of misconceptions that their female partners have of their man’s cross-dressing behavior and their wishes.
- It also pulls no punches in revealing the depth of betrayal that a woman feels when she finds out about her husband’s cross-dressing later on in their relationship, when her husband should have been honest with her from the very beginning of their relationship.
- Boyd provides much needed insight and support for the “significant others” of trans-gendered men (Male-to-Female).
- She writes of her own experiences, and backs it up with thoughtful research.
- Should be a good read for Female-to-Male, as the general concepts of understanding, acceptance, and tolerance is necessary for all transformations.
- This book is a must read for EVERYONE! Raw and real stories. I think this should be required reading for everyone.
