Happy Friday, Gentle Readers. Though not too gentle, please, because you know The Betties like it rough. *rawr* Welcome to another fantasmic edition of The Betties Advice Blog. What we need our adoring public to do, is send us your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Then we will answer them right here on Fridays if we deem them worthy of our attention.
This week we have an offering from someone who doesn't necessarily have relationship trouble, just someone who wants to know what we think about something. Which is great because us Betties are known for speaking our minds.
I want to know why you think heterosexual men are attracted to transexual or transgendered individuals, who are now female.
I think what we need to do first, is to define our terms. Wikipedia helped me plagiarize this:
Transvestite: Transvestism (also called transvestitism) is the practice of cross-dressing, which is wearing the clothing of the opposite sex.
Transgendered: Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex" (identification by others as male or female based on physical/genetic sex). "Transgender" does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual; some may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable to them. The precise definition for transgender remains in flux, but includes:
"Of, relating to, or designating a person whose identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender roles, but combines or moves between these."
"People who were assigned a sex, usually at birth and based on their genitals, but who feel that this is a false or incomplete description of themselves."
"Non-identification with, or non-presentation as, the sex (and assumed gender) one was assigned at birth."
So, now that we've cleared that up, I think that straight dudes could possibly be attracted to hot trannies because once you've become enough of a man-whore, you need to branch out. If one were to keep an open mind about such things, one could reach epic realms of sluttiness! Think of the possibilities! Not only would you broaden your fuckability to include chicks, but dudes who look like chicks/have recently become chicks/people with no clear gender at all! There is actually a proper term to describe this phenomena:
Pansexuality is a sexual orientation, characterized by the potential for aesthetic attraction, romantic love, or sexual desire towards people, regardless of their gender identity or biological sex. The word pansexual is derived from the Greek prefix pan-, meaning "all". It is intended to negate the idea of two genders (as expressed by bi-).
There you have it. It takes all kinds. Lesson of the day: Broaden your mind and your loins will follow.
What is this? The other two Betties are absent? That's because Pina is too busy down at the wharves, trying to get sailors to barter their chewing gum and nylons for her services. Where is the Muffin, you say? She went back to Hot Yoga, and now she can't get her foot down from behind her head. While Hunka is excited, it makes it difficult for her to function in every day life.
With that, let us leave you with a song. Until next week, bitches and trannylicious alike.
