So what is TransAttraction anyway? Simply put, it’s a heterosexual males attraction towards transgender women. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone, there are other guys out there who feel exactly the same way you do.
I know that this isn’t the easiest thing for a guy to figure out on his own, I also know it can be pretty hard when you don’t have anyone to talk to or relate to, for this reason I created TransAttracted.com.
I’d like TransAttracted to feel like a safe environment for guys to talk about their attractions, learn more about the women they are attracted to and pickup some correct terminology along the way.
When i first published my article in 2014 titled – My Attraction to Transgender women shouldn’t be a secret, it was the first most of my friends and family knew about the way I felt and how long I’d kept it a secret.
I got some great feedback from friends, I had a few guys get in touch and tell me they had the same feelings but didn’t really feel like they had anyone to talk to. I also posted the article on reddit and got a few replies with what felt like hostile undertones, it wasn’t conducive to me sharing openly and at that time I wished I hadn’t because of the comments.
With that said, I want the TransAttracted website be a safe place for guys to talk about things, we’re not going to tell you off for using the wrong words, we will gently correct you. Learn about some of the issues trans-women face today and some of the challenges that still exist for them.
We’re not going to be colour blind for want of a better term and pretend that there are no differences between trans-women and cis-women, there are differences, but most of the guys reading this have already realized or will soon realize that these differences should be celebrated and embraced as a good thing.
I’m not talking about the physical differences here, I’m talking about the important stuff, a trans-woman might understand you as a guy better than any cis-woman, she might even watch star-wars and play the xbox with you, be your favorite geek, she’s been there and done that – think about the possibilities.
Be the best guy you can be 🙂
