What do you think of an idea that trans people should date other trans people? I mean, in non exclusionary way. Sure, there are cis people who understand us and our needs, but I have had amazing connections with other trans people.
Going back and reading the responses on this thread, I am even more interested in hearing about the differences you seem to identify in appreciation of trans women from cis men versus trans men or trans women.Absolutely trans people should date other trans people. If anything it's the most typical relationship that I have encountered. It's nice being with someone who can understand you, who can advocate for you, for whom you don't have to carry a lot of mental load dealing with your transness. I mean if you can find a cis person who does that, great! go off! But more often than not it's gonna be another trans person.
Can you talk a little more about this? Are you speaking about a cis man specifically when you say this? If so, why is it particularly significant to you to have a cis man genuinely view a trans woman as beautiful? I have so many thoughts, but this seems like a perfect time to listen rather than speculate.
