    I'm talking about a woman going out with a man who used to be a woman.
    it's not really a man though is it, it's a woman with a mutilated vagina that dresses like a man.

    do we really need this thread? - fair enough, all of you can go yes/know... but enevitably it will be filled with ignorant/offensive comments towards trans people

    and speaking as a transwoman, i dont really see this accomplishing anything usefull, but to give a platform for hatefull comments...

    hmmm... while i fully accept their GENDER as being the one they feel... i'm not sure if i would... i really wouldn't know unless i were in that situation... 50% of me is saying yes, 50% is saying no... but now while i'm thinking about it... 80% of me is saying yes, 20% no... i really can't think why i wouldn't... so if i were sexually attracted to them both physically and personally (like anyone else) then yes, probably.

    if they were post op then yes if they were pre op/not considering op then no.

    Probably. Y'see, I'm a collector of tricks. Pure sensualist, mixed with a soupçon of eccentricity, and a dash of perversion.

    Plus we could talk about sports and **** after banging. That'd be boss.

    well really we don't need any threads they are just ways for people to talk about/ see peoples opinions on things that interest them and most threads don't accomplish anything useful. Most of the problems people have to do with trans people are todo with it being "strange" and unusually so making it something we "shouldn't" talk about to avoid these comments will keep it seeming strange because people will never hear about it.

    I'm a pansexual, genderfluid person, and yes.

    Why are the transpeople not included in the poll?

    how come?
    because someone who is assigned as female at birth and then changes their sex legally or personally to match their gender (i.e male), is a man. just like someone who is assigned male at birth and whose gender is male is a man.

    Its all well and good talking about it in a civil manar... but i just hope people keep in mind that being transgender is very tough+ can cause people to have a pretty hard life... i mean 40% of trans people try and kill themselves, and most have to live under constant hate/harrassment/abuse/troubles... before they go posting hurtfull coments...

    OK, I have engaged my brain now. I have read your post and I think you really need to change the wording. Transgenic does not mean what you think it does.
    lol too true, but that's an interesting question too

    If I loved them, then sure, why not? It doesn't make a difference to me so long as they're a good person and are kind.

    I think it would really be something I'd have to confront at the time. I honestly don't know. I think it would be strange to view someone who, y'know, looked like a man, as a woman, but on the other hand it just is difficult to know how you'd feel in advance. It's an easy option to burnish your liberal credentials by saying you would, but in reality I know it's something a lot of people have problems with, and I'm really not sure how I'd feel at the time - though I'd really hope it wouldn't matter.
