There are apparently thousands of people on various social media who say they love, like or are attracted to Transgender women. While that’s cool and all that … do you actually know the difference between transgender, transsexual and transvestite?
How about sexual orientation and gender identity?
If you are trying to communicate with trans people then you really should know who you are talking to…or risk sounding ignorant .
Ill give you an example…I recently did a post in which I identify as a transgender woman who is also lesbian
So, my sexual orientation is lesbian 🏳️🌈 and my gender identity is female. 👱🏻♀️
Sexual orientation is about who you are attracted to and fall in love with; gender identity is about who you are.
Within 5 minutes, guys were commenting on my post with flirts and invitations. One guy posted a shirtless pic of himself on my post. (Immediately deleted and blocked) He’s a moron.
So in a nutshell…get your basic adjectives, pronouns and understanding down. Be respectful…be considerate and even though it may be a new experience for you, try being genuine and be yourself. You might prefer it to being a cartoon character, an anonymous zip or worst of all…a phony.
You can’t be a dumbfuck forever now can you?
