Trannies are disturbing ...
I'm not very knowlegeble about trannys but i don't really think guys who like them are heterosexual.
I've just returned from yet another couple of weeks in Thailand for the sole purpose of spending time in the company of ladyboys. I am not attracted to men at all and what I seek sexually is a woman with a cock, if she doesn't have a cock I am not interested, unless she is perhaps a genetic female, but I consider myself heterosexual.
I also have no issues in eating out with, walking around with and drinking in regular bars with my 'girlfriends' but am well aware of the stares and curiosity that commonly ensue when in the company of transsexuals, including the occasional unkind comment from the narrow-minded sexually ill-at-ease individuals who appeal to others at all costs that they are 100% straight. And when in Amsterdam I commonly stroll those aforementioned streets and have several close TS friends that I see in and away from their kamers. In my opinion they are truly sexually exciting individuals.
I am perfectly at ease with my sexuality, whatever you may consider it to be, but guys are of no interest to me as what I see in a 'tranny', as you crudely put it, is a woman who knows precisely how to make a guy, such as myself, feel very good, commonly much more so than your average female can achieve.
It's obvious they are not everyone's cup-of-tea, so if you're not interested in that area of sexuality then that's your choice. Just as some guys prefer Asian, Black or European girls.
I agree that occasionally some may not reveal openly their status as they display themselves behind their kamer windows, or may in your eyes look horrendous or obviously un-feminine. But many look stunning and are often more attractive and commonly considered more sexy than genetic females by their admirers. They really don't mind being asked, they get asked for confirmation all the time, even genetic girls get asked too just in case.
The key is to relax with yourself, if it's truly not your thing then fine, but maybe you're secretly interested in the concept but need to broaden your own sexuality and discover something new. But please don't accuse those that enjoy these potentially wonderful human beings as being something they may or may not be. Those are the choices others are freely entitled to make and labels are not necessary at all.
It is very presumptuous to assume people who like transsexuals are not heterosexual. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being non-hetero, or gay.
People are people and there are good and bad in all shades of sexuality and race.
