Betrayal of one’s trust is something that happens surprisingly often in TG fiction. It might even qualify as a “TG trope” if it weren’t for the fact that no one (I assume) actually fantasizes about being betrayed. It’s just that betrayal figures into most TG plots in the way that the hero is tricked or coerced (or out-and-out forced) into female guise, usually at the hands of someone they trust (e.g. a parent, a sibling or other family member, a friend, sometimes even one’s offspring). I don’t know if this has anything to do with the way cross-dressers so often feel let-down by people in their life (judging them, or worse), but it’s certainly food for thought. In this slight little story (click the above icon to download the PDF), a late Halloween offering, a trusting son suffers his father’s betrayal and both pay the price. Enjoy!
