Within the community, both from the medical provider side and the transexual community, there was a sense that people who were 'non-op' (that did not want to ever have genital surgery) weren't really transexual, but were instead something else.
This kind of thinking was significantly detrimental to a significant portion of the transgender population who (for whatever reasons) don't seek genital surgery.
This method of thinking enforced notions of a required gender binary, and the notion that a trans person wasn't 'complete' if they hadn't had "the operation." It also created a divide in how people would rationalize the treatment of trans* individuals by cisgender individuals.
Our team has used that insight to build a site for the trans community to connect with other singles without the hassle of "coming out" to potential partners.Our service is designed to make it easy and fun to connect with like-minded people in a casual online environment without the pressures that come with dating as a trans person.New members are signing up everyday, making Transgender your #1 source for fun and secure transgender dating!Some trans* people still find utility in the term and that it describes their personal lived experience and their view of gender, and they self identify as such.In a broader social context however, the terms are falling out of favor.We are committed to creating a transgender dating site with a fun, casual environment where trans people can take control of their dating life and turn it into the positive experience that it deserves to be!
