Like, all we’re asking is that people not exclude us from their dating pool by default with shit like, “I don’t date trans* people” or like, the second they find out that our genitalia isn’t what they expected, go “Whelp, that’s it, shit’s over, see ya.”
I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
Oh, idk, maybe because it’s transphobic? First of all, you’re assuming no trans men have a penis (hint: you’re wrong), second of all, just erasing trans* people from your dating pool and flat out saying “I don’t date trans* people” is transphobic as fuck.
If you’re only attracted to men, guess what? Trans men are men. So don’t fucking go, “I’m only attracted to men.”
To be a woman you need: to identify as a woman. That’s it. And anyone who says otherwise is transphobic trash. The idea that you need a vagina, a uterus, or ovaries is ludicrous because there are plenty of cis women who don’t have one or all of those things. What, are they not women either? Radscum logic at play again.
Why… bother to tell me that you’re pansexual if you’re not connecting it with the ‘I’m okay with dating people regardless of genitalia’? How was it even relevant then?
I didn’t shame a single person who wasn’t okay with having sex with anyone else. I did, however, shame people who excluded trans women from their dating pool by default.
And with that, I’m done. Because I am not repeating what I’ve already repeated a thousand times.
(2/2) The problem is “Transwomen? Guys, guys, that’s so gross.”Having preferences is fine. Acting like your preferences are the only preferences that matter and that it’s disgusting to have preferences that aren’t yours and that the people you’re not attracted to are /undeserving/ of having a relationship with other people is pretty fucked up.
Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
Uh, you do realize that transgender people don’t all look alike, right? You’ve probably walked past hundreds of transgender people going about your daily life and didn’t even realize it.
Transgender people don’t ‘have a certain look’. So, yeah. Reeducate yourself on that.
