so recently, I've seen the terms XX-sexual and XY-sexual going around and I was wondering if these are transphobic terms? If someone is attracted to just cis girls and trans guys and afab nbs, isn't that transphobic?
Eek, these are absolutely transphobic terms.
Any terms describing attraction based on one’s assigned gender and/or ~biological sex~ rather than one’s actual, self described gender is misgendering and is therefore transphobic and contributes to the false idea that biological sex is binary and exists as some sort of absolute.
Biological sex is constructed, intersex people exist, and I’m 62% sure these terms are also intersexist and based on inaccurate, shitty science, but I’m not intersex (and we don’t have an intersex mod) so I’ll stop there and ask that if any followers (particularly intersex followers) would like to chip in their two cents, to please do so, it’d be much appreciated.
