So this post might get a lot of negative feedback. But I don't really care.
I found myself in an awkward position last night. I was asked "So Claire, are you attracted to men or women?" too this I had to take a moment to think, as my particular sexuality has not a word.I explained. "Well I only date other trans-women."
So already I know some of my fellow transsexuals will be thinking "That means you like women, you callous ignorant woman." Which, to some degree is very true. but our society is so inundated with vocabulary that In this particular instance it is surprising to have to go beyond such a simple definition,
See, Cis-women or genetic women or whichver term you prefer to call a woman who was born with female genitals and genetics, Lack a lot of understanding when it comes to Trans-women. Not all of course, there is no such thing as an absolute except in the case of opinions. regardless, seldom have I found one of such women who truly understands the plights of transsexualism. Further so, due to such a lack it is much harder for me to bond with them I have a bad habit of reacting callously to those who can't fully grasp my trials.. this is multiplied by the fact I'm a naturally callous person.
Perhaps more importantly I am -very- attracted to pre-op transwomen. Emotionally so due to the fact I find deep seated connections and for once, have a reason to feel, they can actually break past my callousness give me a reason to care. and physically because.. well I have seen some very attractive transwomen with athletic builds. I like a woman with a package up top and down below. It's just my tastes.
In closing, I don't know what term that would be classified under and for the most part I don't care unless I have to explain it.
