If they didn’t mention they were trans then that would be a problem.
It seems like it would hurt a lot of trans people’s ability to date and not really effect yours.
In one case I was already at the bar drinking when they arrived and it was obvious that they were trans and either hoped I wouldn't notice or wouldn't care.
In both of the latter cases there's embarrassment, rejection, and a waste of time for both parties - easily avoided by filtering on something that can very much be a dealbreaker for folks like me.
It’s just you have to realize that becomes your problem and you can just ignore them.I don't want to debate the legitimacy of transgenderism as that's not what I'm here about and my opinions are not likely to change in that regard.I'm open to discussing the why's and why not's, my view could be changed by a reasonable explanation of why dating sites shouldn't function this way.You might even argue that they are major factors for MOST people. My point is: there are loads of factors that someone might consider “major” when it comes to date-ability.And yet, why should we allow filters for one thing and not another? What is a dealbreaker for you might not be a dealbreaker for someone else.This seems somewhat analogous to a recent CMV post about people with disabilities (e.g. The OP said they felt that a person should have put that they use a wheelchair on their dating profile.The consensus in the comments though seemed to be that a person in a wheelchair shouldn’t HAVE to disclose that about themselves in their dating profile, just as there are many other things a person might not put front and center due to any number of reasons. I find it irritating when I'm using a dating site like Tinder, Ok Cupid, whatever and I stumble across a "woman" only to realize that it's a man that has transitioned or (in most cases) is in the process of transitioning to become a woman.Barring extremists it's generally accepted that I, as a biological cisgender man (think I'm saying that right), am under no obligation to be attracted to transgender women (that is, men transitioning to women I think).There are plenty of women who aren't transgendered and wouldn't be able to reproduce with you.You would not be able to filter out women who fall into this category with some sort of transgender indicator.
