I grew up thinking transexuals where gay, but then again homosexuals do not change their sexual organs making them a completely different agenda to transexuals.

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

Maybe so yeah. Dont really think about it. But I would prefer not to date one. Friends? Sure.

umm.. no. friends, possibly. I'm sure I'd become used to having a transgender friend after a while, but no dating. that would just be weird.

No, no one understands them, not event themselves, hence the recommended extensive therapy before and after the snip/tuck/add-on operation. And when they realize it's a mistake... it's too late.

But of course if you never know about it then maybe you would date one. But I'm guessing there aren't too many passable t/gs out there... not from what I've seen.

Hell no. I actually feel that transsexual operations should be illegal, except in the rare case of people born as hermaphrodites. You live with what you were born with, no matter how much you dislike it.

I personally wouldn't but there are individuals who've had sex change operations who went on to live happy lives and they found partners as well. The general public is pretty ignorant about this sort of thing partly because it's so rare and also because it still has a major stigma attached to it. I was reading something about Cher's daughter who did undergo this surgery. It said that Cher had admitted that she just didn't understand it but because she loved her child she is now completely supportive of the fact that instead of a daughter she now has a son. It just took a lot of getting used to. I think this is one of those things that heterosexuals who are comfortable with their gender can't really understand because they've never experienced anything like it. I think we should be supportive of anyone who is a transexual instead of attacking them for something we just can't comprehend.
