I already did one of these for the women, but apparently it needs spelled out for the gay men as well because I just got fifteen hits in one day for this question.
Seriously lads, liking a transguy is still liking a guy.Â The lack of a penis irritates me just as much as it irritates you.Â Actually, it most likely irritates me more.Â Imagine how you’d feel if you woke up one day without your dick.
Are there some cultural differences?Â It depends on the guy.Â I was raised in gay male circles and know more about gay history than most gay men my own age.Â Other transguys were into women before they came out and are still learning about interaction and social cues.Â Just like with any other guy, a particular transguy may or may not be your type.Â We’re all different though so don’t assume because you didn’t mesh with one transguy you won’t mesh with any of us.
A few myths to dispel: No, we are not straight women trying to “turn” you.Â You’re not that attractive and it’s really not worth the effort.Â Do you seriously think we decided to start shooting ourselves up with steroids and chopping off parts of our bodies just to get dates?Â It’s a bit much to go through, especially since many of us were more popular before we came out.
No, we are not the stepping stone between gay and straight.Â We are dudes, if you like one of us you still like a dude.Â You don’t get to use us as a way to figure out your own sexuality, just as straight men don’t get to use gay hookers to figure out theirs.Â It’s rude, it’s cruel, and it’s ignoring that we’re just as human as you are.
No, we are not all bottoms.Â Some of us are tops, some of us switch.Â It depends on the guy just like anyone else.
No, we are not all former butch lesbians.Â Like I said before, I was raised with gay guys.Â I have no lesbian-dar and wouldn’t know what to do in a lesbian group.Â Most of the time I end up accidentally offending someone.Â Plus, I’m not butch.Â At all.
Yes, we do like cock just as much as the next gay guy.Â If we didn’t we wouldn’t be hitting on you, would we?
We’re guys.Â Guys with a particular medical condition that requires a particular set of treatment options.Â Other than that we’re not all that different from you.
