I'm a 30s straight man from Singapore and never have I ever had any thought of actually dating or seeing a wo'man in my life. Or should I say that I have never really pay much attention to understanding or knowing transsexualism. Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-gay nor anti-transgender. I've no ill intentions at all. I am just so curious in fact, I got so mesmerized by some lovely pics of some new wo'men like Nok Yollada, Nong poy, film etc... Man, they are so sexy, so more feminine than a woman... I'm not really sure what you will think but what "if" I fall in love with a wo'man, am I gay? Straight as an arrow but if I love wo'man, am I gay? What do you think?
Hey there! Thanks for posting this great question. I think it is something that a lot of guys deal with. I do not think that you are gay because you are attracted to these girls. You are attracted to femininity. These ladies, though born male, are completely feminine. They look like women, behave like women, smell like women and (most importantly) they identify as women.
I'm sure that when you look at a man you are not sexually attracted to him. But, when you look at a woman - be she genetic or transgender - you are attracted. I think that makes you straight.
As far as being attracted to their bodies - even if they are pre-op - I just think that means you are open-minded. I personally prefer post-op girls but I would not say no to a beautiful pre-op girl. I think gender lies on the inside and it is a beautiful thing to see a woman's soul shine through these bodies. They are amazing and strong.
Also, let's face it, there is something super sexy about a pre-op woman who is 100% passable.
Thanks for your reply, I felt the same too. I think it's individual perception on an issue. Put it this way, though I still cannot accept pre-ops wo'man but I can definitely consider dating a post-ops wo'man because they have changed their physical selves. They are no longer a male(that thing and 2 nuts).
Sad thing is, not many people can accept this. Not where I come from. Like the Buddha's teaching, everyone has a choice to make, there's no right nor wrong choices. It's what you think can fits you, you go for it. At the end of the day it is the cause and effect you wish to create, you can either put a stop to it or let it be.

Well, first off, they're just plain ridiculously pretty, and anybody who claims that doesn't matter is talking from his prejudices instead of his eyes.
More than that, though, the fact is, there's something inherently romantic about the idea of transformation. Think of all the fairy tales that involve magical tranformations: Cinderella, the Frog Prince, Beauty and the Beast, and so on.
These women have gone through the closest thing to a magical transformation anybody has been through. That creates an extra romantic mystery about them.
