I hope my question doesn't come across as offensive to anyone, but it's something I've thought about for quite some time. If a woman is attracted to a transgender, is she then considered a lesbian? Can someone enlighten me?
Who knows what the politically correct ilk of today's society thinks? It's a rather messed up situation.
One could probably look at this in a few ways. Those on the politically correct bandwagon who would accept the transitioning male as a female would say he/she is a lesbian because the transitioning person looks like and "identifies" (I use that term loosely) as a woman, when in reality, they are a male with varying degrees of plastic surgery. Then there are those who would say the transitioning person bisexual, liking males and females and then there are others who might call the person pansexual if they are attracted to any gender (a male who might think he is a woman, or a female who might think she is a man), in contrast to any sex.
Being a man who has a steady relationship with an transgender female all i can say is: for me it was the person i fell in love with. I knew her well before the surgery and in fact, guided her and stood by her side in the process.
To be perfectly fair I'm not at all fussed with what is between her legs. Her personality is all that counts.
I however do not consider myself gay, maybe bisexual, but to be fair the idea of dating a male is something my brain would object to.
So yea, i am big time in love with the woman of my dreams, do not contemplate having it any other way....
In your profile you stated you are bisexual, which is why you "are not at all fussed with what is between her legs" and that has no doubt allowed you to accept your "girlfriend" who is a male, despite the plastic surgery that has been done or what a person has between their legs. Gender reassignment surgery is more significant than a facelift or a nose job, but the person still is what they are. You fell in love with your male friend before any transitioning was done, so you do appear to be bisexual. You ARE dating a male. He has had a lot of plastic surgery. It sounds like you are not being completely honest with yourself about dating a male.
Has your transgender girlfriend undergone top and bottom surgery yet?
That was simply an academic question because I was curious.
I'm not really sure why that would be relevant, but yeah, she had the full run and has finished the physical bits about 2 yr by now.
That being said, for me it really didn't matter, I'm happy she is happy with the results, but for me personally I wish she didn't have to go trough all that stuff to feel complete. I really don't care what's between the legs. I was just as happy being with her when she still had the factory installed strap-on, as said, it's her personality I fell for, big time.
You knew her well before the surgery, so you to use your words, "fell for" a male, which is understandable since you stated you are bisexual. Your friend has or had sexual identity dysphoria which according to the latest politically correct shrinkologists is no longer considered a mental illness, but rather "distress" due to a mismatch between their gender identity and what they really are. Political correctness strikes again. People with gender dysphoria are typically transgender.
You can change your body any way you want with plastic surgery and hormones, you can change your name (like Bruce Jenner did to Caitlin) to match what your body looks like, but you cannot change your sex. You are what you are.
That brings me to my question about your relationship. Are you concerned about dating someone who in view of their gender dysphoria, might be mentally unstable?
