What would it mean for you to truly step into the fight for trans rights?How can you grow your empathy for us enough to believe we deserve public, joyful, shameless love for ourselves and from our partners?It’s ok, other people, you can stay and listen in too.Here’s the deal: it is not transphobic to decide that you don’t want to date a specific trans person based on your preferences in personality, hobbies, social beliefs, body type, etc.Some trans women, for example, are given the message that they are trying “too hard” and since they “pass,” or look cisgender to most people, they must really be men who are “tricking” people.

The transgender community is a massively diverse group with all kinds of body types, genital configurations, personalities, hobbies, and relationship styles.How do you know the cute girl you were flirting with at the bar last night isn’t a trans woman?How do you know that cute boy you’ve been flirting with on Grindr isn’t a trans man? I know attraction is complicated, and again, no one is saying you should be forced to date someone you’re not into. You can’t assume someone’s genitals based on their identity, and more so, you might be missing out on sex that’s fun and pleasurable just because you’re unable to see a penis as feminine or a vulva as masculine.Dating as a trans woman (online or in person) often means an exhausting stream of inappropriate, fetishizing, dehumanizing, and sometimes violent messages asking about my genitals, people expecting praise for fetishizing me, and others assuming my identity is either not authentic or repulsive in some way.This gets even more complicated when trans women are trying to date straight cisgender men.On the one hand, we punish trans women for being “pretty”, accuse beautiful trans women of lying by passing, and say that trans women are perpetuating misogyny by being stereotypically feminine.
