On the 4chan LGBT boards
  • Person 1:I was in a polite discussion with a trans folk when he brought up this topic, and I'd like to discuss it here. I'm a cis, heterosexual white male. I wouldn't want to have sex with a MtF transsexual, even if "she" was attractive by my beauty standards. This isn't transphobia, it's just a matter of personal taste. Why is that so hard to understand?
  • Person 2:uh, assuming she's had reassignment surgery, you just stated "the only reason I wouldn't have sex with her is because she's trans, not because of 'undesirable' physical characteristics." sorry, but if the basis for the discrimination is PURELY the fact she's trans, then that's transphobia.
  • Person 1:I'm rejecting her on the basis of her condition. It's not a phobia or persecution, just a personal taste. Like I wouldn't start a relationship with a girl who had a lot of previous partners or with a man. It's just a matter of preference. I'm not rejecting her because she's a trannie, I'm rejecting her because the fact that she's a transsexual makes her unattractive to me. Using your logic, I could call a homosexual a heterophobic because she didn't want to have sex with me.
  • ??????????????? just wow
