I heard transexuals are either a girl or a boy trapped in the wrong body, so technically that does not make them gay, while gay people accept who they are, but have one thing in common with transexuals, they both are attracted to same sex but have a different gender, either feminine or masculine to be honest its hard to elaborate in these terms because both possess similar agendas.

i know this question is odd but honest would you date a transexual? As a straight man i wouldn't i would rather date a biological born female than a transgender, but i do understand that transexuals are straight not gay, gay date gays, lesbians date lesbians so the big question is would you date or do you find a transexuals attractive as you may find the opposite sex attracted to you?. i just need your opinions hehe
If I wanted to date a "mirage"-man who used to be a woman I would specifically go looking for one.

There are too many genetically born men on planet earth to date someone who "aspires" to be a male.

Sorry. Answer is never.

No I wouldn't. Transgenders aren't right in the head, which would lead to an unstable relationship. If I went out with a transgendered woman who used to be a man, that would be like dating a man. It would be too weird.

Transgenders suffer from a psychological disorder called Gender Identity Disorder.

Hmmm, I'm not sure. One of my heroes is transgendered (Ben Barres), but to be honest, I can't say I've ever found a female to male trans attractive. Somethings missing. OTOH, feelings of great respect can cross over to a type of infatuation for me, so it's possible.

Ummm, NO.

With the exception of hermaphrodites, anyone who has had sexual reassignment surgery is merely a Surgically mutilated male or female, NOT 'Magically changed from the sex they were born.'

I've never had a transexual friend before, so I'm pretty sure that my conversations with that person would be extremely awkward. I don't think I could stay friends with one.

Dating is simply out of the question if I couldn't be friends with them.

No. It's still obvious they are men. The hands, the Adam's Apple. They've had "Hot Tranny" contests on the Howard Stern Show...despite what they say on the radio it was always obvious they were men when you saw the pics online.

One of my best friends is transgender. I knew him before and after the change and he is much happier now than he ever was before. He's a human being just like anybody else and I adore him as a friend. However, I could never date a transgender person. This isn't because of prejudice or narrowmindedness - it's just my sexuality. I was actually talking about this with my friend the other night. He's gay and he said he could possibly date someone transgender and I said I couldn't. I need the real thing - meaning man part. I also like very manly men. Most transgender men are not as masculine as the men I am attracted to. My transgender friend has dated lesbians and bisexual women and gay men. Like I said - I think it depends on your sexuality. If I was attracted to more effeminate men or if I was bisexual - I would probably be fine with a transgender man.
