Question pertaining to Trans sexuality(maybe trigger? dunno)
I would like to preface this by saying that I am a happily married straight white man, and thus cannot comprehend on a fundamental level the difficulties the LGBT or any other minority community encounters, thus I beg you for your patience as I stumble through unknown territory. I would also like to state that I try to live my life in such a way that so long as people are not messing with me or my wife and are not radically intollerant or willfuly ignorant I don’t give a flying fuck how they want to live their life.
My question relates to the dating/sexual preferences of trans individuals. Before transitioning are they attracted to more “stardard” sexual orientations? Does HRT change any sexual leanings? Is it considred homosexual to be attracted to the same gender as your birth, regardless of the state of transitioning?
Again, I beg your patience if I have inadvertantly insulted anyone, but I am a transplant to a redneck hick area that is about as progressive as free-floating algae, so trying to reach out to any potential nearby trans people to ask is a no go, and I am extremely unfamiliar with acceptable vernacular to use in the community. Please forgive my ignorance, as I am trying to learn to be less so.
Answer: I’m going to leave this open for anyone who can answer for him! He wants several responses so please comment. Thanks!
