Gay men who want to be more feminine

In exchanging emails with one of my oldest online-only friends I learned that Alex wishes to become Alexandra.
I was surprised, worried and I have to confess actually displeased.
Surprised: I've always thought of Alex as a proudly feminine gay lad. I know how he's suffered from the average queer's sissyphobia. I've always pictured him strutting about in halter tops and hip huggers (or whatever he likes to wear).
Worried: Alex may be hoping that Alexandra the girl will find more acceptance than swishy Alex. MTF transsexuals don't have an easy road. Probably worse than having a hard time finding a boyfriend and being mocked for a 'poofter.'
Displeased: Alex lives in the UK, we aren't apt to ever meet. But he is one of those guys that if I were younger and he nearer I'd certainly liked to know more intimately (in all senses). Though we've only known each other via the web Alex gives off that androgynous girlyboy vibe that is one of the best things in this, the only, life. If he becomes female that won't be true anymore (not that girls, born or made aren't attractive).
This is nothing more than my wayward imagination. If become a woman is what is best for Alex(andra) then I wish him the best. But I hope he is fully sure that SRS is what he needs to become who he feels she is.
