One of the things you hear from people constantly these days is how hard the dating game has become. You have online dating services that end up creating flaky behavior. Massive ego inflation online that makes women think they are more attractive than they are and thus, deserve better men than they can probably get. Guys who talk about relationships, but just want to have sex and ghost. It goes on and on.
Then, I’m sure it’s even worse if you’re gay since a lot of places don’t have a thriving gay culture and, yes, a lot of straight guys will get offended if they think you’re hitting on them. Still, if you’re gay, there are places you can move with lots of other people like you (Ex: San Francisco) or you may at least be able to go to the local gay club so you can be sure you are in your element.
Now, imagine being a transsexual who has been sold the lie that you can actually change sexes. You may have had your surgery or you may not. Whatever gender you identify with, you may actually be attracted to the other gender. On top of that, although there are a few trannies that can pass for attractive members of the opposite sex, almost all of them just look off. That’s what happens when you grow up with one gender’s hormones pumping through your body and then you try to pretend to pass for the other sex. On top of that, you obviously have severe mental issues and although a lot of people have been silenced on this issue because of political correctness, they quite correctly see you as what you are, which is not the sex you are claiming to be. This delusional fantasy quite naturally has severe ramifications when it comes to dating,
Recently, my colleague and I asked this question of just under 1,000 participants and we published our findings in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.
…Relationships are one of our most important sources of social support. Indeed, our relationships play an important role in our overall mental and physical well-being and our relationships are a better predictor of how long we’ll live than smoking or obesity! But, if very few people are willing to date trans people, what does this mean for their health and well-being? If trans and non-binary people lack access to one of the most stable sources of social support, this could explain some of the existing health disparities within trans communities.
…For example, while only a very small minority of cisgender, heterosexual individuals (3.1%) were willing to date a trans person…
…In a follow-up study recently presented at the Canadian Psychological Association’s annual convention, we examined people’s reasons for excluding trans folk from hypothetical dating pools. By and large, the reasons given fell into three overall categories: dehumanization/prejudice, uncertainty or lack of knowledge, and issues related to bodies and reproduction. The most common reason for being unwilling to consider dating transgender or non-binary people was that participants felt that they lacked information and understanding of what precisely these kinds of identities mean within the context of dating. For example, many simply stated that they had never really considered the question before and were unsure of what it would mean to be in a relationship with a transgender or non-binary individual. Other reasons, however, were less about lacking information, and more about a strong dislike for trans people. For example, one participant indicated that they were not interested in dating “non-humans” or people with “make believe” identities. These types of responses questioned the legitimacy of transgender and non-binary identities and took a very dehumanizing tone in referring to trans people. Finally, a minority of individuals mentioned a desire to only date people with whom they could have biologically related children, however, often these reasons were still expressed using dehumanizing language, such as saying that a trans man “was not a natural man” or a “real man” and that therefore it would not be possible to have children with him.
You can take a man, surgically add breasts to him, pump him full of estrogen and get him to wear a dress, but he’s still a MAN and by definition, a guy that’s straight doesn’t want to date another guy. The problem isn’t prejudice, it’s the fact that despite the, “Everything trans is great and you will love it” propaganda we are bombarded with, most people are not willing to do something that greatly impacts their personal life based on what we all know is a lie. Good for them.
