Transgender women who look very hot and let men pick them up thinking they are totally female when in reality they still have a penis. That is mean and has really screwed with some mens heads and hearts.
I agree that disclosure should be done well before getting intimate, like on the first date or sooner. I can't tell you how many times a guy has hit on me through one of my dating profile's then when we start actually conversing about 4 or 5 exchanges in they ask "do you have a penis?" or "are you a woman?" This is funny because it is clearly stated in any of my profiles bio's that I am Transgender and when I inform them that yes I am Trans they get all butt hurt like it's my fault they found me attractive. I'm like bruh maybe if you actually read my profile instead of just looking at my pics you might have already knew that. Like excuse the hell out of me for having good bone structure and soft features.
You wanna transgender as an adult... fine.. but don't play head games with people and be dishonest cause that could get you killed by some dude who doesn't liked getting f***** over that way. This happens often from what I've heard.
The majority of us understand this all too well and are sure to be open and upfront from the very beginning. We're not these evil practical jokers trying to sucker men for our own amusement. Oh and I wouldn't be into a dude if he was into "getting effed over that way"

How can you say someone is born with the wrong brain wiring for the chromosomes and body they have, but also claim they do not have a mental disorder?!?!
Isn't that an oxymoron...
Obviously if all their wiring went correctly, they would have the right brain for their bodies..
I'm 100% pro people doing anything that isn't hurting some one else.. period.. go to whatever bathroom, marry whoever..
But you don't get to claim being transgender is genetic or biological and thus "not a choice" and still say there is no disorder present.

And you are neglecting the influence of genes but hey, it's easier to be an ignorant ranting bigot when you can ignorantly proclaim that your version is teuth deputy it not being the case. Care to provide a citation for your special ed meme?
Haha, I expected no less. To be called an ignorant ranting bigot, and then be asked for a citation?
So what you are saying, is hey, you might be right, show me the proof, but even if you are right, you're just an ignorant ranting bigot.
Well, you are a rabid fanatical promoter of an agenda that is harming children and add to that you seem not to understand biology or genetics.
No worries, us deplorables will always step up and help those less fortunates that couldn't afford a proper education.
