OMG! Beautiful guyz!
Some very cute guys. Surprised y’all didn’t mention Anthony Correia. He’s done a bit of modeling and does shows on Cam4 as well.
Nice. Hard to believe that they were women before !
Nice! Are any of them gay? I wouldn’t mind dating a most of them.
I have often found a lot of trans-men very attractive. I don’t know if that means I like feminine faces or something.
@EdWoody: Me too! I don’t think it’s a “feminine face” thing though, although that’s certainly something interesting to think about. I’ve know a few trans men and have found several of them to be very attractive. I’ve often wondered if I could ever be with a trans man in an intimate way and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m torn because I don’t want to think that I wouldn’t give a trans man a chance, but I really do think that there is a crucial piece of anatomy that I really enjoy that just wouldn’t be part of the relationship and that might be a deal breaker for me. Fortunately, this question will always be hypothetical for me because I’m very happily married but it was also something that I wondered about. I guess that means that I’ll just have to enjoy their handsome good looks, like the second from the top and the second from the bottom. Very very cute.
@EdWoody: Non of these guys have feminine faces, at least I don’t think so. Hard to believe they used to be women. Kinda cool to see how much human bodies can transform.
Those are wonderful photographs!
They are some seriously sexy men, and I have to admit I think if the opportunity offered I would be up for being intimate with a good looking trans man. Does that make me bi? I don’t think so I am attracted to masculinity and the question of a penis is of less importance to me then the overall package
Wow, bar the 3rd and 6th pics, I’d never suspect they were tans. Hot.
You know, top surgery really needs improvement or better plastic surgeons…it’s a shame that some of them are so scarred up.
Their pecs look a bit odd
I have just got to say that this is not a good way to represent transmen.
you’re not hot because you’re thin, or white.
you’re hot because you are CONFIDENT in yourself.
as a bearish FTM who has had NO surgeries, I see no one on this list with whom I have much in common.
perhaps, if you ever post something like this again, ADD fat folks, ADD folks of color, ADD disabled folks, ADD folks who have had NO SURGERIES.
I was so hopeful that this might be a good list… but alas! :(
@humanlee: Get real. A good looking person will always be more physically attractive than an ugly person with confidence.
A great example of beauty.
Damn, the 2nd guy and 2nd to last guy are smoking hot. I’d be open to dating a Tman, i’ve just not met many and the ones i have, have been interested in women. sigh.
So you can get your comments flagged off this fucking site because you share your opinion on trans men??
Why do gay people ruin their bodies with too many tattoos ? Horrible ! So many hot gays make themselves look trashy & dirty.
@Icebloo: Just like I don’t want anyone telling me what I can and can’t do with my dick, I don’t want anyone telling what I can and can’t do with my skin. You would think that gay men would intuitively get that.
Helloooooooooo nurse!Quite the sexy lineup.
I’m a 19 year old trans lad, awaiting top surgery :) have been on testosterone for 5 months! I have people following me on my journey so feel free to add me if you are interested! Kenzie randall-beale :)
@DShucking: If you are an example of that really good looking person that good for you… for proving his point! There are plenty of beautiful people in the world. So many so that they are pretty much a dime a dozen. It is the ones with an actual heart and personality that actually stick out!
@TinoTurner: If your opinion is closed minded and negative, I certainly HOPE so! Also, for those of you who are saying, “they used to be women…” THEY WERE NEVER WOMEN! They were men in a body that resembled that of a female. Stop being closed minded and consider the language you use!
@Zekester: Well put, and I am sure there are plenty of people that find tatoos to be sexy. Of course, that is not the point. If you really like someone, you are totally selling yourself short if you let ANY physical characteristic determine your level of relationship.
This just amazes me o.o How could these sexy, more-manlier-than-me looking men have been women!? I would totally date them :D
@tdx3fan: Oops, posted my comment a bit too late :S Sorry if I offended any trans people. Although I’m sure they know what we meant.
@tdx3fan: They might not have ever been women but they were and are still female.
They may have not been women mentally and emotionally but they had women’s bodies and they were raised as women.
@iltman: I really wish more men thought like you… Being a gay trans man is a tough gig… Most guys are to focused on their intimate parts. :(
@sangsue: You have no idea how any trans man was raised… Shame on you for assuming that.
@TinoTurner: Please give me YOUR definition of what a man is…
@Sebizzar: I wish more men thought like you :)
@TinoTurner: Well thanks for at least saying that Trans folks should not be hated…lol. Seriously. I think thses guys look more masculine than many gay men.
Let me start off by saying its not a fight im looking for by posting this, its to bring awareness, but i will stand strong to defend them. Many of you men, NOT ALL, are ignorant and the comments youve posted have made me really lose hope in humanity. Just because someone is born a different gender or sexual orientation doesnt mean they feel that way inside, ALL OF YOU GAY MEN KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. What makes a woman a woman? …her anatomy? If that is true: then you will also agree that if they no longer have that anatomy then they are not women! MANY of these MEN have received surgeries completing their transition..you say theyre not men cuz they dont have penis?! some do! some dont have their female reproductive organs any more and MOST have had top surgery. So if a bio male born with a PENIS but is born sterile, does that make the NOT a MAN? A few of these men have had ALL the surgeries to become the man they were supposed to be, they just cant reproduce. Like really???!!
OPEN UP YOUR MINDS AND STOP BEING SO IGNORANT! EXPAND THAT TINY TERRIBLE NEGATIVE THOUGHT IN YOUR HEAD THAT THIS IS WRONG, IM SURE MANY OF YOU HAVE HEARD THAT FROM DISSAPROVING PEOPLE IN YOUR LIVES WHEN FIRST COMING OUT. GENDER TRANSITION IS DIFFERENT THAN SEXUAL ORIENTATION BUT THE PAIN OF HURTFUL WORDS IS ALL THE SAME. SINCE WHEN HAS DISCRIMINATION EVER BEEN OKAY IN THE LGBT COMMUNITY OR ELSEWHERE?! AT THIS POINT I BELIEVE THESE TRANSMEN ARE MORE OF A MAN THEN THE GAY MEN TALKING CRAP ON THIS SITE.
AND THANK YOU @zombiethunder
AND THANK YOU @ zombiethunder:
But for the rest of you, you should be ashamed and know the pain of discrimination:

It is incredibly disturbing that this list celebrates such a narrow representation of trans masculinity that ultimately looks like white, passable, thin trans men. In no way does this list represent the assertion that you like your “men in all shapes, sizes, and colors.” Furthermore, it was completely problematic and unnecessary to comment that “trans men are no exception” to your love of celebrating the male form unless you intended to assert that trans men aren’t quite men, which is exactly what you did.
The first guy looks like Captain Sparklez!?!?!
Typical trans rant @ramirez2014
bring awareness… blah blah blah… ignorance… blah blah blah… respect the language police or its ALL CAPS FOR YOU MR OPPRESSOR!!!!!
Good luck to them but they have female DNA in every cell of their body.
Is there a gay website that doesn’t wear people down with endless trans lectures? Gay life used to be fun
my Aunty Stella just got Dodge Charger SRT8 just by some part-time working online with a macbook air. navigate to this web-site>>> http://x.co/3noax
@Mel: DNA is neither male or female…DNA has no effect on sex or sexuality. Education CAN be fun, GROWTH can also be fun. Learning to use your words in an effective way can also be fun…It really IS all about knowledge and perspective as an older gay man I could bemoan the fact that I am no longer relevant that gays in general are historically superficial and vain and only care about youth, looks and the latest trends…As a gay man who has been out longer than most of you people have been alive I haven’t seen much growth. ALL of these online publications and comment sections represent a microcosm of the gay experience, crunch the numbers and you will find that all groups all cultures are rife with ignorance.YOU SAID Gay life used to be fun…LIFE CAN be fun my friend it is what YOU MAKE IT.
The first photo of the skinny nerdy guy is so my type…SIGH,SWOON!!!
@Mel: Please STFU and go back to your bubble where you can be blissful in your ignorance. Gender identity, just like sexual orientation, doesn’t follow biology. IF you are a gay man then you know what it’s like to have people dismiss you because they don’t agree with your orientation because they are ignorant. Yet, you feel totally free to speak ignorantly and totally dismiss something because you don’t agree with it. Hypocrite.
Transphobia is alive and well in the gay community.
“Furthermore, it was completely problematic and unnecessary to comment that ‘trans men are no exception;…’.”
Wrong. It is correct and appropriate to acknowledge reality, in this case the reality being that transmen have to deal with stigmas from inside the lgbt community. Have you read the comments? Similarly, the entire gay rights movement is built around the idea that we as gay people were ‘born this way.’ If you are going to have issues, then that line of reasoning should be a huge stumbling block for you.
It is funny how almost everything on Queerty become a battle or a war.
So much ignorance in this thread, I don’t know where to begin…
About the only time ever that anyone seems to put genotype over phenotype is when ignorant people argue about trans issues. I have the genes for blue eyes, but my eyes are green. (This is not a made up scenario, that’s actually true in my case.) Do you argue that my eyes are ‘really’ blue because that’s what my genetics say they should be? No, because genes are just a blueprint. If a house gets built differently from its blueprints, or has a wing added onto it, no one points at the blueprints and says that difference or addition isn’t really there.
Liking a trans guy doesn’t make a man any more bi than you were before liking the guy. You probably never see the genitals of ~99% of the people you find attractive. If you’re attracted to men, you’re going to be attracted to some men who were assigned female at birth without ever realizing they were such.
Trans people have been a significant part of the gay movement and world since before Stonewall, so acting like they’ve been glommed on in order to bring down your fun is disingenuous and ignorant of your history. Not to mention the fact that some trans people are also gay, it’s not an either/or situation.
You don’t know how these men were raised, they could have come out when they were very young and had been raised the vast majority of their life as their actual gender, or they could have come out as adults, or anything in between.
There’s no getting around the reality of noticeable scars for top surgery when the man’s chest was originally large enough that the keyhole method is not an option. Extra tissue has to be removed, and like any case where that has to happen, there’s going to be scars.
If you’re so afraid of female-typical genitals, know that not every trans man still has them, and even the ones that do don’t necessarily expect or even want or allow you to use them. For all you size queens, remember that if a trans guy uses prosthetics, he can pick a size that no human being could be born with, and it never goes soft ;-) And to be a bit graphic, even without surgery, trans guys’ junk after being on T for a while isn’t like a cis woman’s. The smell and taste become male, the clit enlarges to essentially be a small dick.
@Jessy R : thank you. It is very interesting. I don’t think that i can have sexe with a trans man because i don’t like woman genitals and to play with a prosthetic, not really my thing too (even how BIG it can be)…and i love sperm too. I love to play with my lover’s sperm and have it in my mouth.
@Jessy R : “And if you’re so afraid of female-typical genitals…” Are you applying that we are gay because we are afraid of women?
@Stefano: No, because I’m not talking about women, I’m talking about trans men. And the point was that if you’re hesitant about trans men because of the possibility of coming across female-typical genitals, remember that some trans men don’t even have those anymore, and even the ones that do don’t necessarily expect you to do anything with/to those.
However, if you really think that female-typical genitals = woman, there’s no point in trying to reason with you.
@Jessy R : it is my personnal choice to not having sex with trans man. Is that ok with you now?
@Stefano: You really should try it, they’re fantastic in bed.
I take offense to this, but only because my boyfriend should be on it.
@Stefano : i just don’t want too. That’s all.
@nyxiver : i just don’t want too. Arewe in a free country or in Russia ? ;-P
No one said you had to, but it didn’t hurt you to be educated about the actual reality of what’s going on down there instead of your assumptions.
The first and last pics are the same guy. I was just in his thumblr and he commented it was flattering the attention. I will come out and say that I’d do him several times cause I think he is super hot.
@Jessy R : It is my personal choice to learn what I want. I just don’t care about trans people. What you do in bed is your business, what i do in my bed is my business.
I am glad these guys are on their right path. But I could not see myself being attracted to a trans person. Bring on the overly PC rhetoric where everyone is supposed to love everyone regardless of looks. But I doubt many here would go there either.
And for the diversity police: two pics are of the same guy, one is Black, one seems Latino. That is a pretty good ratio.
@JennyFromdabloc : thank you !!!
@LadywithaLamp: DNA has no effect on sex or sexuality
Are the XX and XY sex chromosomes just there to make cells look pretty?
@Jessie R: You probably never see the genitals of ~99% of the people you find attractive
True and most of the “guys” above pass (except 3 who looks like a lesbian).
But when I do get to the unzipping stage I want to see male parts not reconstructed female parts. That’s why I’m gay.
@Mel: I was thinking of hormones,my bad. Interesting that we all start out as female in the womb.
@Jessie R: No, because genes are just a blueprint
Genes are more like a recipe. An apple pie recipe gone wrong ain’t a blueberry pie.
@Mel: People start from a female template in the womb and undergo sexual differentation in development. However, different aspects of sexual differentation happen at different times. The sexual differentation of the brain can be mismatched from the rest of the body, much like the sexual differentation of genitals is in more traditionally intersex conditions. So your apple/blueberry pie metaphor is a red herring, as are similar smart-ass remarks (e.g. comparison to race or to other species).
I don’t have any problem with trans folks. They are what they are. Most gay men get along fine with other gender atypical individuals.
What is tedious are the daily lectures about transphobia because somebody used the wrong pronoun or doesn’t accept that a trans man is *really* a man.
I’m a gay man. I’m not claiming to be a straight man who likes dick – as if that piece of information was incidental to the definition of straight man.
@Jessy R : tu sembles frustré avec le fait que certains gays ne comprennent pas les transexuel(lle)s. Sache que nous ne sommes pas des ennemis et que même si je ne me sens pas attiré par toi, cela ne veut pas dire que je te déteste. Pourquoi cette haine envers les hommes gays ?
@NoelG: Thanks for the response. As a genderqueer person whose partner is a trans man, I am very aware of the transphobia that permeates the LGBTQ community. In no way did my comment insinuate that we were ‘born this way,’ which I think is homonormative crap. My point was that the entire opening text of this article is problematic in that it ‘others’ trans men and pays lip service to some kind of love for men of all shapes, sizes and colors when the content of the article clearly celebrates white, passable, thin, trans men who have access to gender-affirming medical care. The article is not celebrating trans men – it’s celebrating some version of cis-passing trans masculinity that upholds a violent gender binary system. If the opening named the reason why trans men are no exception, then my feelings around that part of it would likely be different, but it did not address transphobia and stigma in an explicit way.
Leave it to the Queerty comment section to affirm the banality of male/male relationships.@dr_meltron:
@Mel: “What is tedious are the daily lectures about transphobia because somebody…doesn’t accept that a trans man is *really* a man.”
That’s kind of the textbook root of transphobia.
@Jessie R: That’s kind of the textbook root of transphobia.
Oh well – perhaps the LGB and T should go their separate ways.
The comments here have been both informative and eye opening. I must admit to being somewhat ignorant of this. Personally I just can’t be with a trans person simply because when it comes to intimacy, what you’re carrying down there is very important. No matter how well reconstructed, it’s just not the real thing and know I’ll be really disappointed if I were to get close to intimacy with a trans.
@Mel: FIRST OFF: I am a bio female, no where on this site does it say women cannot enter and comment on this site. SECOND OF ALL: I am dating one of the guys in one of the pictures posted. I agree with you on one thing though, gay sites shouldnt have blogs about Transmen, just because you transtion doesnt mean they like men, some do, others are straight like my boyfriend. And if they do make posts about transmen, they shouldnt allow discrimination in the comments, dont be a hypocrite and tell me to read the policy, gay men know first hand what discrimination feels like! If you are sooo concerned with “trans lectures” as you call them, and that making the site or your gay life no longer fun then dont visit this blog. And speaking of IGNORANCE, I think you are very ignorant thinking that being gay means you have to have a fun life, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT: gay, straight, bi, trans, lesbian, purple, blue, monkey for goodness sake!
I am so happy to see queerty giving some attention to the trans community. I hope the men in these photos are happy and healthy and living the lives of love that they deserve. The tattoo on the one young men about feeling freed from his cage is beautiful. So nice to see happy stories when there is so much negativity in the media – especially for the trans community. ramirez2014 – whichever of the men is your partner, appreciate and love them. Your loyalty and love is admirable.
I don’t see this as a gay site but a queer site – somewhere for folk who are alienated from the heteronormative. We have a lot of work to do in order to bring understanding to the world of sexual diversity out there. Here’s to reading these stories for the hope and beauty they are intended and a hope that we can refrain from disparaging each other. If there is anywhere on the web where understanding should reign, it’s here. Peace and love :)
Why would I want my model to look like a prepubescent child? Maybe that is why do mant straight people equate gay with child molestation. I prefer a man to look like a MAN! I dont want to feed the stereotypes.
Hot guys, and glad to see Queerty featuring transmen.
Where is this “Gay Community” that everyone is always talking about? I’d like to go there and see what all the fuss is about.
@B Damion: The gay community is a beautiful place in our imagination where we are all kind and supportive to one another, where no one judges you irregardless of your race, size, gender or gender identity…We all ride unicorns and fart rainbows.
@DShucking: actually they aren’t. after time, your chemical make up does change. It does take time, but they may keep the female parts, internally their make up has changed. I don’t know how it works, I am not going to bother posting ten thousand links. I just know because I asked my hormone doctor. You know, someone who specializes in hormones and works with a lot of trans people. And is a fucking doctor, who isn’t a crackpot fool. So, yeah just wanted to let you know.
@B Damion: @sangsue: @DShucking: I’m sorry, but I wasn’t raised as a “woman” or a “man”, I was raised by parents who cared more about my education, and my well being, over my initial gender role in life. You people focus way too much on gender, that’s why I am sick of this world and the people in it. Gender doesn’t define who you are. Who you be with, where you go, what you want. But people make it define those things. It’s stupid, really.
I see my comment was deleted for saying I prefer not to consider these transmen as biologically equal to men born with a penis. Take away the surgery and the hormone injections, what do you have? I agree with Stefano wholeheartedly. There are certain things that a transmen CANNOT inherently do as a biologically born male and if you refute that you are fooling yourself. It cracks me up that we have armchair biologists chastising us people who have worked for a degree IN biology and know what the truth is. I refuse to be bullied into thinking otherwise. So if I were to dress as Little Bo Peep and demand to be called such then everyone else would have to abide by my wishes? If I said I was Napoleon I would then magically become him? Or more generally, if I said I was dark skinned and obviously not, then you would have to recognize me as such? I cannot demand that people go along with my self perception of who I want to be even though it is obvious not “the truth”. They may truly feel that they are men, but simply are woman pretending to be men and go far and beyond to keep the illusion of such, but it is not really true. I really think that most of these people suffer from some sort of body dismorphia on a whole different level. Slay me in the comments if you must but just as you are strong in your conviction of your idea of what a true man is, so am I.
If you like dressing as Little Bo Peep then something inside you is Little Bo Peep. Biology is not gender Bo.
@Manchester: There is no species differentiation or historical figure differentiation in prenatal development. There is sex differentiation, and it does not happen all at once, and can be mismatched. The undeniable example of this reality is classically intersex people. Being trans is just an under-recognized subset of that. Show me someone born inter-species and I’ll consider the possibility of the validity of your asinine comment.
Where would I go to meet these guys? They all seem so nice and I would be very interested in dating.
Graham Gremore, did you ask permission to post these photos or did you just find their Tumblr blogs and assume that adding a link back was enough?
Transgender people are at a much higher risk of violence and assault than the LGB community. It’s also illegal to be fired for being transgender in a large number of US states (more states than it is for being LGB). By posting these men’s photos under the title ‘Sexy Trans Men’ you are outing them as transgender to a huge audience who clearly (as seen in the above comments) do not all believe that they are real men.
While I am sure you made this article with the best of intentions, you have violated these men’s privacy and potentially their safety, their welfare and their job security. Do the right thing and remove this article until you are certain that all photographs have been used with explicit permission.
@Jessie R: Where’d you cut and paste that from? Your failed term paper. If you’re talking about Watson-Crick gene pairing then it does happen all at once you idiot. If you are referring to Gene crossover that also happens all at once. One does not all of a sudden start to create a different set of DNA because they suddenly realize they were mistakingly growing a penis and need to change it. You have the same line up from the time your dads sperm met your moms egg. You are most likely referring to some sort of brain development issue. But you’d learn that in a biological psychology science class had you bothered to take one. And simple biology will tell you that a penis and a vagina are not the same thing in regards to your intersex comment. Now THAT was asinine.
@youareprobablywrong: You were born with a disorder for which there is treatment. It’s absurd to pretend not to have been a girl, boy, male, female. Get over your butthurt by terminology which has enslaved you and get on with your life.
@Mel: Thank you.
I’m a gay man. I would never have sex with a trans guy if he didn’t have a penis and testicles, and I don’t mean some semblance thereof…because I’m a gay man. Duh.
@DShucking: I wholeheartedly agree. While the shell, complete with tattoos and hormone-pill-induced body hair, may present male, I just could not see myself going there. Ever.
I’m glad these guys are on their right path and wish them love & happiness.
number four. sexy!!!!
How about…thanks for the article. I saw a collection of very beautiful men…period. Sincere and thanks.
@kenziebeale: You’re a hottie! I can’t wait to see your full transformation.
@Icebloo: Let’s face it Tatoos are a Masculine Statement. So anyone striving towards masculinity may op to get tattoos. Example: Buck Angel. Disclaimer: I am not saying getting a tatoo will make you more masc I am just saying from what I have observed many FTM op to getting them to deal with body dysphoria.
@LadywithaLamp: Great Statement!
One does not all of a sudden start to create a different set of DNA because they suddenly realize they were mistakingly growing a penis and need to change it. You have the same line up from the time your dads sperm met your moms egg.
Nope. Look up mosaicism for example.
DNA does not determine sex though, so it’s irrelevant. It biases the odds, heavily, that one or another sex will develop. But 1 in 300 men aren’t 46,XY “genetically male”, and some women are. Rarely, so are the daughters they give birth to, as here:
J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2008 Jan;93(1):182-9
A 46,XY mother who developed as a normal woman underwent spontaneous puberty, reached menarche, menstruated regularly, experienced two unassisted pregnancies, and gave birth to a 46,XY daughter with complete gonadal dysgenesis.
Maybe this might help explain when it comes to Trans and Intersex.
Sexual Hormones and the Brain: An Essential Alliance for Sexual Identity and Sexual Orientation Garcia-Falgueras A, Swaab DF Endocr Dev. 2010;17:22-35
The fetal brain develops during the intrauterine period in the male direction through a direct action of testosterone on the developing nerve cells, or in the female direction through the absence of this hormone surge. In this way, our gender identity (the conviction of belonging to the male or female gender) and sexual orientation are programmed or organized into our brain structures when we are still in the womb. However, since sexual differentiation of the genitals takes place in the first two months of pregnancy and sexual differentiation of the brain starts in the second half of pregnancy, these two processes can be influenced independently, which may result in extreme cases in trans-sexuality. This also means that in the event of ambiguous sex at birth, the degree of masculinization of the genitals may not reflect the degree of masculinization of the brain. There is no indication that social environment after birth has an effect on gender identity or sexual orientation.
When the page loaded, there was a photo of Daniel Radcliffe in the array at the top of the page. The first/last guy look like Dan. Mmmmmm!
For two years I dated a F-to-M transsexual, my beloved friend and TS activist Rob Garcia. Rob made the choice, as are increasing numbers of transsexuals, to live without reassignment surgery. F-to-M genital construction is still very lacking.
If Rob hadn’t moved, we most likely would still be together today. Powerful, handsome, sexy, and sexually creative, his masculinity lie not in his penis, but his passion. And he knew how to use sex toys with prowess.
I am a 58-year-old gay male, in an open relationship with my husband of 30 years. On two occasions, I found myself in the company of trans-men, who were male and sexy in every sense of the word. Both still had vaginas and both identified as gay men. I discovered that HOT is HOT, and the genitalia did not matter to me [and I am a bottom!]. With both men, we connected intimately, both personally and physically, and they were wonderful experiences. I realized how strong attraction can be when the mind and spirit connect, aided by beautiful eyes and smiles. So, for me at least, the attraction was not solely in the genitalia, but in the masculine spirit.
@BeachDaddyDave: Good for you BDD, you just took the first step towards transcending gender. Hopefully one day in the future we won’t look at someone and ask “Hmm I wonder if that is a male or female” and just go with how we feel in the moment.
Thank you, Ethan. I also learned something about myself from these wonderful experiences, and in ways I cannot quite articulate, I feel freed from labels and artificial constraints.
@Manchester: @Manchester: Wow!! Your comments seem amazingly intolerant and hierarchical — especially on a forum on Queerty. Do you consider yourself a member of the LBGT community? Or would your prefer LBG community or some other derivative thereof? Regarding your comments on body dysmorphia, is that far from the time when people were considered to be mentally ill for being sexually attracted to members of the same gender? I tend to believe men who want to retrofit their genitalia because they feel they’ve been born in the wrong gender. I’m thankful that I’m comfortable with my body and gender even though I was not always happy about being gay. I don’t think you intended to be offensive but you’re on a slippery slope — if not gone way over that cliff already!!
They’re bursting with TESTOSTERONE, that is why transmen look delicious.
Nothing that they do will ever change the reality that they are female.
Homosexuality has a meaning and that is the exclusive attraction to the same sex. This might upset the sensitivities of the LGBTQETC community that so intent on not being labelled “transphobic bigots”, but a female is a female is a female and a male is a male is a male.
@Mel: Incessant trans narratives have taken over mainstream gay spaces to the point where it’s almost impossible to escape them. I will never be guilt-tripped into accepting a female as a male or viceversa, no matter how much I get called phobic or closed-minded. I am a man (adult human male) and am attracted to other men (adult human males). Language is important and the minute they started going after gay people and referring to our sexuality as “closed-minded” if we didn’t include transmen or transwomen was the minute I finally pulled the wool over my eyes and saw their coercive tactics for what they truly were.
@jiljol: OMG jiljol can you not hear yourself?! Can you not hear the EXACT arguments the gay community has been fighting against since stonewall? Do you not see the irony and more important the insensitivity in your comment? The Truth whether you are willing to accept it or not is just as sexuality is not just black and white either is gender. If you say “a female is a female” and “a male is a male” what are you using to base your judgement on? Genitals? If so what do you say to men born with testicles and ovaries inside which happens with XXY Chromosomal babies. Or Men who develop large breasts because they have a tumor in their pituitary that causes the pituitary to secrete a large amount of prolatin. Nature is not black and white.
@ethan_hines: Ethan: I did not understand jiijol’s comments AT ALL! It is interesting how a comment I made, that celebrated my OWN learning and discovery, could generate that kind of bile! Ah well……if I said the sky was blue someone somewhere would argue and take offense. It’s the nature of the beast. Than you for your kind comments.
@ethan_hines: Spare me the liberal q*eer narrative of “woe is me, we are oppressed ergo we need to follow suit with whatever this group of people who claim oppression say!”.
Your argument makes zero sense and posits a logical fallacy. Stop hijacking the lives of intersex people because your community has made it clear that you do not care about them at all except to use them as some kind of rhetorical gotcha point. The existence of medical conditions related to biological sex does not change the fact that human beings are a sexually dimorphic species (female and male). Many more people are born with missing or extra fingers, but that does not change the fact that a human hand is made up of five digits. People are literally born without fibulas but you do not see “activism” trying to say that human legs are some kind of construct.
It is due time for your group to stop nitpicking medical conditions for your convenience. Very sick.
