    People of all hues can be attractive regardless of how you see yourself. The world is expanding to see that we all have tastes niche and some not so much. Main thing is if you are happy in yourself, this matter is no one elses business but yours .I would not give too much thought to what nomclemanture says. Enjoy it :)

    Carve that niche in society for yourself..

    Its nothing new and dont start some absolutely crazy garbage about straight men being into trans women being gay

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

       Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Wow so first look on this forum for a few years (sorry for the quiet, hi hope everyone’s cool) and this is genuinely chilling!

    you are who you are if you like cia guys and girls only that’s cool(hell it’s one more than I like!) Complaining that trans people have changed what a word means genuinely horrifies me! If progress in another section of society makes you worried about the definition of a label then tough ****! It doesn’t change the essence of who you are.

    and petty platitudes about how you’re fine with trans people don’t affect the bias you’ve shown!

    I didn’t complain about trans people changing the term bisexuality but rather activists who changed. And yes my sexual orientation is just as important as their gender identity. The idea you don’t respect bisexuality is what is chilling.

    You're trying to say that bi people who dont particularly mind if their romantic or sexual partner is trans or cis are not bi - thats not respecting their identity.

    Gender is a social construction, referring to male and female.

    Sexual orientation, as the name suggests, refers to the biological sexes of XX and XY. You are attracted to both XX and XY, so you are bisexual.

    Another person may interpret their sexuality based on gender, sexual orientation, or both. But that's for other people to decide.

    Based on what you've told us over the course of this thread, you define your sexuality based on the biological sexes. And as there are only two biological sexes, and as you are attracted to both of these sexes, you can quite clearly define yourself as bisexual (irrespective of what anyone else thinks or believes).

    Whether you are interested in trans-men or trans-women is a different question. Technically, they are still one or the other biological sex, so fall within your definition of bisexual. If you are not attracted to a trans- person, there's nothing wrong with that. After all, you're bisexual but don't find all men and all women attractive - irrespective of whether they identify as cis- or trans-.
