How Sexual Orientation Works When You're Transgender

The word 'transgender' is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the gender they were assigned at birth. The short version of the term, 'trans,' is most often used to describe people who are transgender.

For instance, say there was a transgender woman named Chloe. Her birth certificate said 'male,' and the name given to her at birth was Chris.

However, she always felt like a girl, and thus started to identify as a woman growing up. This change in gender identity makes Chloe transgender, and out of respect for her, people now call her Chloe and not Chris.

How Sexual Orientation Works When You're Transgender

A lot of people get confused by how sexual orientation works when a person is transgender. That's partly due to the terms 'sex', 'gender,' and 'sexual orientation' being used interchangeably. However, these words are quite different:

  • Sex: The term 'sex' refers to the anatomy of an individual's reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics. This is typically referred to as body parts around the pelvic region, such as the testicles, prostate, or penis (most often attributed to a male). The female reproductive system is typically referred to as a system that includes the vulva, uterus, ovaries, and breasts.
  • Gender: Gender can be defined as the social roles based on the sex of the person or the personal identification of one's gender based on internal awareness. There are many gender identities, like the classic male or female, or additional identities like agender, androgyne, bigender, genderqueer, and more.
  • Sexual Orientation:This refers to an emotional, romantic, or sexual attraction to other people. For instance, a transgender man (a person who identifies as male now) can be attracted to other men, and thus also identify as a gay man. If he were to be attracted to women, he would be identified as straight, or some other type of sexual orientation.

A Breakdown of Sexual Orientation

Sexual orientation tends to line up with your gender identity, not your biological sex. Trans reader broke it down for us:

  • If you are male and,
    • you like guys: you are gay.
    • you like girls: you are straight.
    • you like both: you are bisexual.
  • If you are female and,
    • you like girls: you are straight.
    • you like girls: you are lesbian.
    • you like both: you are bisexual.

However, if you are transgender, things are complicated by two factors: 1) how the world sees you and 2) how you see yourself.

  • If you are a transgender woman, but the world sees you as male and,
    • you like guys: they think you are gay.
    • you like girls: they think you are straight.
    • you like both: they think you are bisexual.
  • If you are a transgender man, but the world sees you as female and,
    • you like guys: they think you are straight.
    • you like girls: they think you are lesbian.
    • you like both: they think you are bisexual.

But,

  • If you are transgender and see yourself as female and,
    • you like guys: then you are straight.
    • you like girls: then you are lesbian.
    • you like both: then you are bisexual.
  • If you are transgender and see yourself as male and,
    • you like guys: then you are gay.
    • you like girls: then you are straight.
    • you like both: then you are bisexual.

No matter what your body looks like.

Additional Sexual Orientations

People should know that transgender folks can be asexual and not be interested in sexual relationships. Individuals who are asexual tend to not feel sexual attraction. Just like teens might know they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or hetero, it is also possible for a teen to clearly know that they are asexual.

Trans folks can also be pansexual. Pansexuality (sometimes called omnisexuality or polysexuality) refers to feeling attraction to people regardless of their gender identities, sex or sexual orientation. Being transgender and gender identity, in general, might color how someone relates to their sexual orientation. But just like it's possible for a cisgender person to exhibit any kind of sexual orientation, it's the same for a transgender person.

It's important to treat transgender people with the same dignity as anyone else and to respect their gender identity. Many transgender folks face discrimination, mistreatment, and violence in their every day lives.
