And actually fanboyism/girlism is something I really hate.
I was only a fangirl of Rios when I was 14 or something
Now, now, don't sell yourself short: you're a fangirl of sweet Genci, right?
I don't mind a bit of fanboyism/girlism (might adopt that) and most MTF'ers do have it in various degrees (whether they want to admit it or not. Some can hide it better than others). Everybody needs to float just a bit now and again as long as you're standing with both feet firmly on the ground when it really matters and it doesn't cloud your judgement (too much).
I'm far from a fairweatherfan, though.
In the Tour de France, one year, I desperately wanted to change my support to Lance Armstrong because my favorites were losing miserably from him year after year.
You knew in advance when Lance was going to attack and when my favorites were going to be embarrassed.
Rationally, I respect the man from Texas so supporting him makes sense because he was the ultimate professional but when it came down to it, I had to continue supporting my old favorites because in the end, there's a reason why you became a supporter (and seeing them get humiliated year after year by Lance )
And other than being a total professional, I find him to be totally and utterly arrogant. Talking about Lance, I read somewhere that he was dating one of the Olson twins.
