I'll have another go, lol, to further confuse things.
Surely to my way of thinking, if one suffers gender dysphoria, thinks like a female and is convinced they are or should be female, Then GAY does not enter into the equasion, it logically would be natural to be attracted to men. Hang on, I hav'nt finished, before some of you start hanging me out to dry. Like the last time I advocated this theory.
That does not take into account the diversity of human nature, Irregardless of what gender you see yourself as, basically if you are a genuine TG and gender dysphoric, mentally assuming the identity of a woman, if you fancy men, per se, that would seem natural, if you fancy women, that would make you a lesbian. No sin either way.
If your just a thrill seeking knicker wearer and identify as a man and seek the company of males for sex, then in my opinion that would make you gay. This is about how you percieve labels, not wether anything is wrong or right. Back to labels, not eveyone
agrees with labeling, but they do help identify what we are, where would we be if they did'nt label tins, tubes and packets.... eating rollmops with custard cleaning our teeth with haemeroid cream lol.
Now we go onto the perception of the all unknowing general public, in particular the ignoramus element of society, there is less of a phobia about being gay or a lesbian than being a transgendered person usually being seen as a weirdo gay that wears dresses, this is also the general idea of how gay men see us. Coming out once to a gay guy when I was younger and he discovered I was wearing knickers, holdups and a bra under my ambiguous outer wear, said ''FFS if I wanted to shag somone in frilly knickers I would be chasing girls''
And I note Penny's point, why do so many men lose interest when they discover a TG/TS is post op.
What am I? happy living and loving a who rather than a what.
