    hmm, I suppose, but I do not like that. More often than not people are inclusive in hate but exclusive in praise. I understand ya, but I did specifically say homosexual to disambiguate. It’s a fairly common misconception that trans people are just gay people who want to deceive straight people. Being trans, however, is not connected to sexuality, it’s identity. I would have identified as a mostly straight d00d before transitioning, with a bit of pan-curiosity, now I’m solidly pan, somewhat more attracted to men.

    TLDR: trans is not gay, but it’s kinda gay, and I’m double gay.

      I appreciate that you used the word homosexual, but the person you replied to didn’t so I was confused as to why you thought that’s what they meant. 🤷

        I was mainly trying to be funny but I did take the comment to mean she likes women, so now she knows she’s gay because she knows she’s a woman.

        I’m gonna be real with you though, I’ve been having terrible migraines today, that combined with my ADHD and who knows why I say what I do.

          I also meant my initial reply to be more sarcastic and rhetorical, but I forgot that doesn’t come across online so well. Hope you feel better soon though.
