Being transgender doesn't mean a person is "lying" about their gender, it just means that they have body parts different than the gender they identify with. Try to think about it in different terms, BMH. How about this; what if a girl got upset with you after a couple dates because you were not completely forthcoming about something that is private for you, and difficult to talk about? Shouldn't she be a little more sensitive and understanding, even if it doesn't work out in the end? Why make more suffering for people?

You're right. I won't tell her on the first date about my mental health. I'll tell my date later about it. But technically you're true gender is what inside of you.

I'd say that your true gender isn't necessarily biological. I've known a few trans and, well, I read energy. Their energy/qi was the gender that they identified as. I'd say that they were women who were born in men's bodies. The real person is the spirit inside, not the body.

As long as she or he is being honest about their true gender I just wanted to let everybody know that I don't like being played.

Give it a try, Bartmanhomer, you might like it. What have you got to lose?

I'm not so sure if I want to date a transgender. I might like her or him as a friend and I'll leave it at that.

Certainly, if you are looking for the future mother of your children, then you'd be better off finding a biological female, unless you wanted to adopt.

Exactly my point. I'm not planning to adopt a child. As I mentioned before there are disadvantage for being a transgender female which is that she can't reproduce babies.
