Not to mention that this results in some probably well-intentioned cis women missing out on connecting with lots of beautiful, amazing trans women.
So with that in mind, I have put together some suggestions for cis women on thinking through some basic trans issues, including ideas on approaching trans women in a romantic or intimate context.
Recently, I went on a dinner date with a cis woman that ended a bit awkwardly.
Some of the conversation we shared was nice, we talked about film (fyi – an easy topic to hold my interest, ladies!
And I want to be clear that working through this stuff applies the same in the context of a casual hookup as it does a romantic date.
I also want to be clear that the following represents only my own perspectives; I don’t speak for all trans women. But the fact is that there are still parties held in some places in which admittance is “women OR trans” only, meaning in this case that one should be either woman or trans, but not both.
One of the awesome things about the queer women’s communities is that I think we tend to be much more open about possibilities for intimate relationships.
Some women are poly, some are looking for an exclusive partnership, and there’s everything in between.
This should go without saying, but referring to trans women as “trannies” or “shemales” is not only ignorant, it’s adopting language that is associated with social stigmatization and even violence against trans women.
After the point that she referred to me as a “trans woman” as opposed to a “woman woman,” I found it difficult to bring myself to even say much for the last few minutes of our little disaster date.
Okay ladies, let’s stop right here and get our game together.
And given that she was aware of my body configuration I have to think that is a strange comment to make to me on a date.
Sadly, the situation only further deteriorated with the appearance of the word “ladyboy,” and the fact that somehow the subject kept getting changed when I tried to discuss these things.
This is completely false (and it makes no sense considering the word describes cis men just as it does cis women).
