Is it wrong to decide never to date a trans person?
Here’s a piece I dug out from Aug. 2017 by one Sara C. on Medium, “When you say ‘I would never date a trans person’ It’s transphobic,here’s why”.
She says she has no problem with the idea of consent (to reject) in an individual case. But she has problems with people looking for types or refusing them.
She also says you can never be sure from an external appearance whether a person is cis or trans or fluid. There are some people you can be very sure are not trans, I would say. But with clothes on, it’s very hard to know for sure what lies beneath.
She also gives this facebook page.
It almost sounds like dating is an obligation!
There was an episode of “Mistresses” on July 5, 2016 where there is the line, “I would never date a trans person.”
