I was at a holiday outing recently when a friend of ours kept making references to transexuals.

First they seemed to be funny remarks but as the night went on, he kept going back to the same subject.

He seemed to imply he had a liking for "trannies", as he put it. Then later, he stated that if they are a hot looking chick, its all good.

The whole night, he kept going back to it, joking around about it the entire evening.

After a night of trannie references, I'm starting to wonder if trannies really turn him on and perhaps this is his way of reaching out for acceptance?

Or maybe he IS a trannie?

Thoughts?

I only like trannies if they are also lactating, amputee midgets with an eye patch, who are post-stroke with no movement on their left side (right side is ok...but I'm a lefty and it becomes awkward). Added plus if they are fans of Jefferson Starship.

But that's just me.

As for said individual, I volunteer you, Mirrodie, to find out first-hand. No pun.

Phil what about if they were fans of Jefferson Airplane or when they became just Starship. Do you take those factors into account?

I might be gay but I don't get tranny's....

Fine. I'll take one for the team and go find out. If I don't come back, tell Mom I love her!

Tommy, Jefferson Airplane...no good. Sorry, I should have specified.

All this talk makes me want to fire up the grill and have some franks and beans! haha

He is not a trannie. He sure likes them though. He is just making sure you are OK with it before showing up with one.

Can I just make a little point?

Please don't refer to them as "trannies". It's considered highly offensive, much like poof, queer, bender, homo etc.

If he likes transsexuals, so what? He's boning them and I don't see how that's anybody else's business. It's just like other people like certain traits in people.

Bender! That's a new one for me. I'm going to use that!

As for "tranny", it's not an actual insulting term. It's like "jew", which can be valid, or insulting, depending on how sensitive people are being and the context in which is it used.

We're just breaking his chops. He's a friend of ours and we don't care who or what he puts his binky in. Or whose binkies are...well...you know.  Wink

It could be he is looking for acceptance. Coming out as gay is less difficult these days but still can be. Bringing home one's first serious boy/girlfriend is difficult. This, however, is at a point where maybe he is not sure how anyone will react. Maybe he has met someone who is a trans and wants to guage his friend's reactions. Just pull him aside and ask him about it quietly. Do not make a big scene. He could be so vulerable about this he does not want to lose anyone.

Or, he just wanted to be silly. But, I would go with the first choice.

Exactly. It's all good, even if he really IS into trannies!( or is secretly a trannie waiting to bust out!) Big grin

The fact that he kept bringing-up the subject says a lot. There are a number of guys out there who like the look of a woman, but a woman can't give them what they want physically. So they go for "Chicks with dicks". I've seen this happen before: for some reason some guys like this like to drop hints to their friends. A guy I know used to work with a married guy who carried around a suit of playing cards featuring chicks with dicks. He'd sometimes take them out and remark positively on the pics, usually saying things like "If you couldn't get a woman, would you do one of these?". I heard later that the guy came out as being bisexual, but I'd say his sexual interests also lay elsewhere.

Actually I've got trans friends. It was pretty much unanimous between them that "trannie" was offensive. If anything trannie is discriminatory.

Call me PC but i'm sure you don't like being called "breeder" or the straight equivalent.

There's being non-PC, and just downright rude.

IF (big IF) he is a trannie waiting to get out and saying stuff like: " h if they are a hot looking chick, its all good. ".. that means that one day he will come dresses up and he wants you to play "house" with him/her (Whatever).

I agree. There is a difference in being transsexual than just doing drag.

Most men with transsexuals are not gay. Bi at the most.

I can beat the lot of you. I am a transsexual!

For the record, I don't like being called a 'trannie' Makes me feel like a gearbox.
Also, 'trannie' is kind of used to sum up everyone how dresses as women. In reality, there are at least 3 different 'types' of 'trannie'.

Transvestites, who just dress in the clothes.
Transgender, those who like to blur the line between the genders.
and Transsexuals, those who feel they were born in the wrong body and seek help to change temselves to their real gender.

As to you're friend. He's definatly trying to tell you something, but from personal experiance, it may be more to do with his attraction to transgendered people ( a much nicer general term, I feel). But everyone is different, and the best thing you can do is treat him as normal, not make a big deal of the situation and do not ask them directly. When he's ready, He'll let you know.

Best Wishes,
Jess B
