Zhana Vrangalova late last month wrote a piece for Them about the results of a study by two Canadian researchers that showed that the vast majority of cisgender people (those who identify as their biological sex) would not consider dating a trans person, and that is just another example of the discrimination trans people suffer.
Of 958 participants in the study, only 12 percent said they would consider dating a trans woman or trans man.
The high rates of trans exclusion from potential dating pools are undoubtedly due in part to cisnormativity, cissexism, and transphobia — all of which lead to lack of knowledge about transgender people and their bodies, discomfort with these unknowns, and fear of being discriminated against by proxy of one’s romantic partner.
It is also possible that at least some of the trans exclusion is due to the fact that for some people, sexual orientation might be not (just) about a partner’s gender identity, but attraction to specific body types and/or judgment of reproductive capabilities.
We’ll admit this is the first time we’ve ever seen the word “cissexism” in print.
Varad Mehta of @DecisionDeskHQ — an obvious “transphobe” — had a few observations (view this person’s tweet (Link): here):
“Virtually all heterosexuals excluded trans folks from their dating pool.” I think I see the problem here.

A Response or two that tweet received:
“It’s your fault transgender people have mental and emotional problems because you won’t date them.”
Now there’s a winning pitch if I ever heard one
