Are most male to female transsexual women exclusively attracted to men?

    No. According to the most recent study conducted in the U.K. with a sample size of about 800, the percentage of heterosexual transsexual females is approx 33%. Many of these Trans-women identified as homosexual males prior to transition. Another 1/3 identify as bisexual, and the remaining 1/3 identify as lesbian or asexual.

    Prior to Transition, since they are functioning in a male role, a large number of Transsexual females attempt to have relationships with women (some very satisfying.) These appear to be typical heterosexual relationships. Once a Transwoman accepts her condition and begins to live her life as a female, things can get very confusing, especially if she had difficulty with the aforementioned heterosexual relationships. Things can get even more confusing if she is attractive and starts to receive attention from men. It's not unheard of for Transsexual women to find their sexuality seems to change in the course of Transition. What is actually happening is that the her true sexuality, which was repressed as part of her attempt to function in the male role, begins to emerge. Once she is free to live as a female, so too her sexuality is freed, and she can entertain relationships with males and not feel as though it is a homosexual relationship.

    So to the outside observer, the Trans-woman's sexuality seemed to change, when in fact it simply came into alignment along with the body/mind congruence. Of course, not all Transwomen experience this. Some continue to pursue relationships with both genders, while others are never attracted to men and identify as lesbian after they Transition - all the more proof that gender and sexuality exist independently of each other.

    It amazes me how such a simple concept is lost on so many people (Heather for example.)

    For myself, I do not believe GENDER is what defined my sexual preference; I was attracted to men before realizing I was female to male transsexual. I identify as a gay man, (not as a gay transsexual man). I am a female to male transsexual, which is my 'label', but I am a man, which is my 'truth'. Being that I am attracted to men, I would be considered or 'labeled' as gay. Labels do not bother me unless they are used maliciously. Hope that doesn't sound too stupid or confusing. :-)

    Erica gave a very informative and accurate answer, and all I can say is that it is true from what I've observed. I know a few transsexual women, and their sexual orientations are all over the map, more so than natal women.

  • 1 decade ago

    Erica pretty much nailed it.

    I was always attracted to both men and women. I had relationships that were physical since prior to puberty. Hence my attractions were in place long before the sexual life began.

    I have had since transition relationships with men and women and transwomen. I found that other women were the right thing for me overall. This is not to say that I still do not find men attractive but I am in a wonderful long term relationship that will last me the rest of my life.

    when you have gone through the experience of changing sex (try it some time...), sexual orientation is a fairly minor issue and not something people get too worked up about.

    trans people, male or female, can be straight, gay, bi or asexual, like anybody else. it's entirely possible that transgender women are lesbian more often than cisgender women. i certainly am. i like girls. and i like being a girl.

    Yes since they feel like women themselves.

    I can't speak for most, but I can for myself. Yes I am attracted to some men. Maybe not what a regular straight woman would be attracted to. I'm bisexual too by the way.
