Straight People Are Rejecting Transgenders: Activists Demand Government Intervenes

Transgender people are being sexually rejected by almost all straight people and most gays and lesbians, according to a recent study.

The survey, conducted by pro-trans advocates, found that roughly 97 percent of heterosexuals are not sexually attracted to transgenders.

Now, a group of transgender activists is demanding that the government intervenes due to the difficulty people are having finding a partner after switching gender.

Activists argue that "trans individuals" should not be "treated differently" from "cisgender" (a person who "identifies" with the same gender they were born with) people by heterosexuals.

They blame the lack of sexual interest on the idea of "compulsory heterosexuality" and are now demanding the government takes action to "include" transgenders in straight dating.

“Why should the resultance to date trans individuals be treated differently than the coercive and regulating effects of compulsory heterosexuality?” says the 2019 study, titled Transgender Exclusion from the World of Dating.”

The article continued:

Choices in romantic partnerships are frequently overlooked and chalked-up to a mere matter of personal preference … [but] transmisogyny is symptomatic of the current gender order and demonstrates the continued role of power relations in shaping lived-realities … the current article illustrates the great degree of progress still to be made in moving toward a society that is truly inclusive of diverse gender realities.

In a just society, the authors declare, men who present themselves as transgender women should face no unusual obstacle to romance with men or women:

While education often aims to increase tolerance and inclusion, simply increasing acceptance in public places, such as schoolyards, workplaces, and washrooms is ultimately insufficient, it is equally important to consider the extent to which trans folks are included in broader social systems, such as dating and relationships, given that relationship are an import source of social support and well-being.

According to Breitbart, the government intervention is needed because the authors admit their survey of 956 people shows that transgender people are sexually unattractive.

The survey contained a disproportionately large share of young female Canadian graduates and American sexual minorities, but only 3.1 percent of the straight men and women said they would date transgender people.

Transgender men who try to live as women face sexual rejection from 71 percent of lesbians and 97.3 percent of men, the survey said.

The survey did say if the men had undergone cosmetic surgery.

The survey included a hugely disproportionate share of 106 people who are sexual minorities, including lesbians and gays plus “queer,” “bisexual,” and “two-spirit” people.

But only 45 percent of these sexual minorities said they would date a transgender person, the report said.

The sexual minorities were far more welcoming of women who want to live as men, so only one-in-six of the 45 percent minority of a minority said they would date a man who insists he is a woman.

The new survey of transgender rejection matches prior results from a 2017 survey, which also showed that many Americans decently sympathize with transgender people and want to help them:

Just four percent of normal heterosexual Americans said they would be “very open” to dating a “transgender person,” and only a third [of them] would be willing to tell their parents about the relationship, according to the survey by

Progressives believe this sexual revolution is possible because they believe sexual preferences are merely a “social construct,” which can be demolished and rebuilt by government.

“Sexual classification is neither natural nor universal, but rather historically and culturally specific …. [and] sexual orientation is more accurately described as fluid …  or in a constant state of (re)negotiation,” say the authors, Karen L. Blair, and Rhea Ashley Hoskin.

Blair used her column in Psychology Today to write an article suggesting heterosexual desire is similar to racism:

Just as sociologists have tracked acceptance of inter-racial relationships as a metric of overall societal acceptance of racial minorities, future fluctuations in the extent to which trans and non-binary individuals are included within the intimate world of dating may help to illuminate progress (or lack thereof) with respect to fully including trans and non-binary individuals within our society.
