The liberal website Mic released a video of several transgender women, belittling men who refuse to date ‘women’ with penises. “Cis men are insecure about their attraction to trans women — and now they’re spilling the T about dating while trans.#DatingWhileTrans #WalkingWhile Trans,” tweeted Mic with a link to a video interviewing trans women.
“If the idea is that a guy dating a trans woman makes him gay, then what you’re basically saying is that a trans woman is not a woman, she’s like a boy playing dress up. I mean, like, I haven’t put in all the work and the money and the time and the resources into my transition for people to say I’m playing dress up. I’m not playing dress up; this is who I am 24/7,” said a trans woman Serena.
“Certain cis men who I find are trans-attracted, their approach to trans women, specifically, is a very dismissive approach. I think that their view on us is that of a weak boy. They don’t really see us as women,” said another.
“There are times where a man will approach me, and then, you know, they think I’m attractive, and then they start to talk to me and they hear my voice and then they’re like, ‘Oh, she’s transgender,’ and then, like, I feel the immediate reaction at that point is to get angry or to get violent, or to be like, ‘Why did you trick me?’ Like, you know, “Why are you walking around like this, trying to fool all these men?’” said another.
