      I love reading about the Transfans who now buy TF's for their kids in much the same way that others of a previous generation bought GIJoes for theirs, and continue to do. It's just a warm fuzzy feeling; we're building a community, one Transfan at a time...ain't it something?

      But I really don't care where they'll end after I go - it's good enough if they make it in my lifetime (a fellow Transfan recently lost his collection in a fire, and the general cheer up was "they can be replaced", which is ultimately true).

      As a Transfan since 1985 and an ATTer since around 1997, the online face of Transfandom has definitely changed.
