Free transgender dating site cougar sex dating
If they didn’t mention they were trans then that would be a problem.
It seems like it would hurt a lot of trans people’s ability to date and not really effect yours.
Personally, I would encourage trans people to be up front simply for their own safety, but I don’t see why they should have to wear that info like a banner any more than someone in a wheelchair should have to put that front and center on their dating profile.
The consensus in the comments though seemed to be that a person in a wheelchair shouldn’t HAVE to disclose that about themselves in their dating profile, just as there are many other things a person might not put front and center due to any number of reasons.
I find it irritating when I'm using a dating site like Tinder, Ok Cupid, whatever and I stumble across a "woman" only to realize that it's a man that has transitioned or (in most cases) is in the process of transitioning to become a woman.
Barring extremists it's generally accepted that I, as a biological cisgender man (think I'm saying that right), am under no obligation to be attracted to transgender women (that is, men transitioning to women I think).
Please note that a change of view doesn't necessarily mean a reversal, or that the conversation has ended.
When they're open about it on their profile it's very easy, yes. Sometimes you can't tell though, and you waste time messaging back and forth only to find out they've got a trait that immediately disqualifies them as a partner.
I agree that it would be excessive to try and account for every physical & mental variation and account for them, but the fact that we don't need to account for doesn't mean we should account for nothing.
