Is it transphobic to refuse to date a trans person?

Personally I really don't care who you want to be, what you wear or identify as. As long as you lead a positive honest life that's legal you do you.

I am attracted to a persons personality when it comes to a relationship but when it comes to sexual relationships and being intimate I am not interested in a relationship with a person with a penis. I'm not turned on thinking about what would be expected of me when in a relationship with anyone with nale genitals.

Does that make me transphobic?

How do you feel about this situation if it was you?

  • I wouldn't date someone I find ugly. Let's be completely honest here: most transgender people don't pass as their intended gender. They look off. It isn't their fault. They just didn't get the right medical help, obviously. But it isn't my responsibility to simply overlook that flaw.
    And yeah, if they don't have the right equipment that you're looking for, then that is almost certainly a deal-breaker. What they've got between their legs is probably more important than what gender they identify as.

  • Everything a trans does not like makes everyone else trans phobic.

    It's Thier power word!

    Don't date them cause you don't like Thier personality!

    They will scream transphobic for anything!

    It's like darker skinned people calling others racist! Yet they constantly make bad jokes about it.

    Turn them down!

    So far turned down 5 trans cause they are terrible people get screamed at and sworn at and labeled transphobic by them on all social media.

    I don't care

    It screams how awful a person they are and every one sees that.

    Who wants to date someone that screams things cause they got turned down for a date?

  • A trans woman neo vagina is made from scrotum/testicle skin. Not many straight guys would want that. It’s called being heterosexual.

    Not transphobic

    • A post op trans woman neo vagina is made from their own scrotum/testicle skin. I’m not lying. Google it if you don’t believe me. I find it hard to believe a guy can be straight and want to be with a trans woman

    • agree 100%

    • @bananathunder I thought this would be a good explanation on why a man could say he isn’t interested in trans women without being called a transphobic. It’s called be heterosexual

  • I’m not afraid of trans people, so no phobia here, nor do I treat them differently from other people I run into when I interact with them so no bigotry either. However, I’m super-straight and would never feel attraction to a trans woman even if the full course of surgery was done. This isn’t wrong at all. The biological drive that results in attraction is aimed at reproduction and male sexuality is usually not fluid, so it is no surprise that the large majority of men will only be attracted to biological women.

  • Not at all! Why should someone be labeled as phobic if they are straight and want to be with a real woman?

    • But the people on the left say a trans woman is a real woman so it doesn't that make you transphobic

    • They are entitled to their opinion and I’m entitled to mine, that those on the left are living a form of psychosis.

  • No, it's not transphobic to not date trans people.

    I won't date trans people cause I'm not attracted to them. If you don't call gay guys who won't date women misogynists, why would you call me transphobic for my preference?

    Plus it's super creepy and borderline rape like to coerce sex from people by threatening their public image. "If you don't have sex with me you're transphobic."

  • No it doesn't

  • i refuse to date with anyone but i sure as hell wouldn't date a trans but i doubt it is my transphobia because i would totally bang a trans woman if she was hot enough.

  • We all have preferences. No one has an obligation to be an equal opportunity dater. Transphobic means not wanting to associate with or be near transsexuals. One can be perfectly fine with people being transsexual while still not wanting to date one.

  • Listen, there is absolutely nothing wrong with not wanting to date a man who's pretending to be a woman. Those who want to do it, it's your life, do what you want. But no one has any business trying to act like there is something wrong with the vast majority of men who do not want to date another man.

  • No. You want to be with someone that has a vagina. Trans women do not have a vagina. They also don't have ovaries, fallopian tubes, a uterus, etc all things that women are born with and have (outside of some very rare medical conditions or having a hysterectomy)

  • It is fine to transphobic. Normal to prefer girls by birth.

  • Nope. People have their preferences

  • It isn't transphobic any more than it is homophobic for a straight guy to not want to suck dick. Transwomen are just delusional men who poison themselves with hormones and mutilate their bodies to approximate womanhood, but they can never truly be women short of having their brains transplanted into a biologically female body, if that's even possible.

  • No. I like vaginas, not dicks or mutilated dicks

  • Nope, but the question is a typical attempt to shame people for their preferences.

  • Phobic? You think I'm afraid?

  • Obviously it is not, you can't have sex with them, you can't have kids with them

  • No it doesn't all, we all have different sexual likes and dislikes,,,

  • People will say it is, the world will accuse you of it.

    BUT, it's your life too. It's your decision whether you want to date or not. If they wanna get butthurt, that's on them.

    It's impossible to please everyone. Everybody has a "you did evil" ploy.

    My advice to you: Don't give a fuck.

  • hell no. Is it homophobic to refuse to date a gay person?

  • I used to feel the same way. a sex game with a very bountiful trans girl in it changed my views and forced me to hear what they had to say... used that very same game with another former transphobe with the same outcome.

  • No, it's not. It's called a personal preference.

  • Nope. Anyone who says otherwise is a predator. Trying to guilt/shame someone into having sex is some predator shit.

    • If the question was a nail then your reply is the hammer cause holy shit you hit the nail on the head.
