I asked some of my followers about the things they’d like to know/would like other people to know about dating trans folk and here’s what they came up with… But even so, if you think men who fancy me are gay because I ‘used to be a boy’ by that logic anyone who’s ever fancied a grown adult must be a paedophile – because everyone used to be a kid? And anyway, in my experience, it’s always better to wait for these things to, well, pop up naturally. It took him weeks to get his head around the fact that I was trans. Many men have been introduced to trans people through porn – so for them, we’re these hyper sexual creatures, a naughty fantasy. And don’t forget, trans people are as diverse at the rest of the population, so our dating experiences are going to be diverse too. But sorry to break it to you, your straight brother probably does. Who do you think is watching all that trans porn online? None of this stops me falling in love with about three gay men a week, mind you – but I’ve come to accept the fact that Olly Alexander probably isn’t going to marry me anytime soon. I don’t really see it that way because I’ve always felt like a girl. I don’t speak for all trans people, but for me the answer is: hot guys. Just because I’m trans doesn’t mean you have to be rude tho. I once fell in love with a very charming young man I met at a party. It was great, while it lasted, but sadly it’s not always like this.
Sexual orientation, being lesbian, gay, bisexual or straight refers to who you are attracted to.
If an X sperm fertilizes an X egg, the fetus will be female.
If a Y sperm fertilizes the X egg, the fetus will be male.
Furthermore, you already know that gender and gender identity is a qualifier in romantic entanglements. Non disclosure is a deception not because it should or shouldn't matter but because to so many people it does.
If a woman is of the opinion that sex defines gender it's not your place to change it if she isn't challenging your right to be you.
