Attraction to trans women and when it crosses the line into problematic fetish and objectification?

1 comment

Hello Juliett,

 

I enjoy your videos and blog, and first want to thank you for your creative efforts and presentations educating cis gendered individuals about various issues as it relates to trans ppl within the LBGT community. My question is for cis males like myself that are attracted to the feminine features, characteristics, mannerisms, and aura that applies to both cis and trans women. As to be respectful and not offend, fetishize, or objectify trans women/the lbgt community, at what point or when does attraction cross the line and become a fetish, objectification, or "tranny chasing" in your opinion?

Hello Jamaal and sorry for the delay, I've been lax on the old website recently... I guess for me it's like anything really, if it exists as part of a relationship or a genuine and open attraction then it's fine. If it's a dirty secret and something you wouldn't consider in a genuine relationship then it wouldn't be welcome attention. I guess that would be my opinion if I were single.

 

I've been approached by plenty of guys who wouldn't be seen dead with a trans-woman on a regular day out and I guess that's the dividing line. If you would date the person openly then it's probably going to be fine. There are exceptions of course but I think that's a pretty reasonable expectation.

  • Hi. I am new to crossdressing. Used to do it when younger. I would wear my mothers underwear, but she caught me. She did threaten to punish me by buying me ladies underwear. I begged her to, but mom didn’t carry her threat through. But mom recently died. This fired me up to start cross dressing once again. My wardrobe has changed from male to feminine. But I wonder how I can get rid of all my body hairs, even round my genital area. I would be glad of any information on this. Thanks Maria
  • Because of anatomy, women walk differently than men and it is my understanding that this walk cycle can be quite difficult to master. In any case, it will always be "performance art" for anyone born male. Please enjoy the video.
  • Hi, I may be visiting New Zealand within the next month or so. I'm going to need to do a few things while I'm there. I hope to be landing in Auckland. The first is a crossdressing makeover. NZ has a significant LGBT community; but I can't find a place online. I've got every search engine in the world, but no luck. Can someone help me out with this? Secondly, I need to go wardrobe shopping. I need everything. I also need to go somewhere they'll actually measure me. Most importantly, I need to learn how to contact "real" CDs, who are open to sharing with newbies. So far, the only thing I've come up with is going to Drag-Shows and trying to get an introduction to one or more of the performers to get hooked-up. I suppose maybe even offering an honorarium might not be such a bad thing. As you can probably tell I could benefit from some advice in this area. I want to be percieved as being sincere and not an admirer looking for a date.
