I saw something recently on Twitter that has me thinking about a previous post about transgenderism. What bothered me about this tweet was what was said: 98% of straight men will not date trans women because of hate.. Sorry, what? Whenever I see a statement like this, I often wonder the genesis of it. Of course, I’ve found no data to back this up – like a poll of straight men. There may be one, but does it indicate hate as being the reason? There may be that level of prejudice, then again, there might be another reason why straight men refuse to date a transgender woman.
I don’t believe I’ve ever gotten out of bed in the morning and said to myself, It’s a great day to be a heterosexual male. Seriously, who does that whether you are a man or a woman? Do we all automatically self identify when we get out of bed and go through our day? No, we are who we are. I’ve never met a single person that ever made any sort of self identification. Do gay and lesbians do that? None that I know because they, like me, are perfectly content as to who they are. Everyone lives their lives to the best they are able to at any time. N one should be prejudiced against someone for their gender, sexual orientation, or their gender identity.
