On a politics forum, we are discussing the Chaz/Chassity Bono sex change and the board admin {gay guy} said that most gay men either feel like they are a woman in a man's body or they want to be women.

I disagree with this and say it's a small percentage that feel that way, not most.

Please vote and let's see how the numbers break down.

Oh Raphid you are soooo right!  I have resented the "secretly female" characterization and all the biases and stereotyping that goes with it.  It is in my view an oppression that has been foisted upon us for so long. Unfortunately too many of us have cooperated with this and magnified that oppression to an immense degree. I had hoped the coming to light of the phenomenon of transexualism would do much more to dispel that oppression than it has.

I am bisexual and I have never felt like I want to be a woman.  I love to have sex with men(and women) but I do it as a man with a sexual attraction to men(and women). 

Another sterotype that most straight people believe is that all gay men do is want to have sex 24/7.  I am not attracted to all men and I can function as a grown man without busting a nut every 5 minutes.

For gay men who strive to be a woman(and vice versa) I do not and will not ever belittle you.  I think it has more to do with mental development at a younger age. Sexual "urges" that may have been repressed until puberty.  Noone should ever be made to feel less important just because they see the world through a different set of eyes. 

Sorry for my preaching but I had to get it off my chest.

I don't think I consider myself as woman trapped in a man's body
I like the way I am and I don't need to everyone else who I am.

Sexual attraction for me is more like a mood swing
Few females attract me a lot (just because of some specific feature like a dimple, or hair)
Till now, I have never liked a man face to face though I do enjoy their company

When it comes to the issue of sexuality and gender I think it is within the realms of possibility that there are going to be loads of people who have what ever feelings they have whether they be transgender or anything else.

Personally I am a man in a mans body.  I call myself Gay so that the rest of the world and the morons who like to put me into a catagory can do so.  To me I simply can only fall in love and be in love with another man.

I am versatile not because i like playing husband and wife on differing occasions, but because i like the feeling that this type of sex gives me.  ONe night I like to fuck, others i like my partner to really give me one.

It is far too easy in this world to make assumptions about the human condition.  To be completely frank I am so glad that the old stereotype of gay men wanting a gay male wife are dead and gone in general because wheni came out i neither wanted to be a husband or a wife.  Then again each to their own; we have managed to liberate ourselves somewhat.

There are many people who believe that they are the wrong sex and If a man thought we was a woman trapped ina mans body he would probably not want to call himself gay.

The soone we stop trying to pigeon hole people and just letting us develop in any way our souls are destined to go, the sooner we'll be free from all kinds of prejudice.

There is a south american tribe, the name of which i cannot remember who's population have the highest incidence of hermaphroditism in the world.  In their culture they accept hermaphrodites completely and allow them to decide for themselves if they want to be male or female.  so much so that there are those who are male one day and suddenly feel female the next and their community accept this totally.  In the west we have had the disaster where at birth doctors have decided to chop off the wrong bits only to end up with people who when they reach pubity were destined to be the opposite sex.

For me Gay is pretty "Str8t" forward and wanting to be another sex is an entirely different thing. When I was an optician in Atlanta we participated in Gay Pride vendors mart.I was approached with would we accept Transgendered folks that needed eye exams and glasses/contacts since apparently it was a difficult situation for some folks. Well we saw many and even set up after hours appointments for some. Through my interactions I came to understand those differences and know that I am a MAN that Loves MEN.

I asked a patient one day if She thought that the stigma (oh they all want to be women) Straight Society places on Gay men with of perpetuating that stigma by producing young Gay men that to be "gay" is indeed wanting to be a woman. He was quite familiar with this and had struggled with it for years before coming to the conclusion that he was a WOMAN in a MAN'S body so opted for transition.

We were good friends till his death.

i can say that i have never wanted to be a women or felt like one.
I am gay and have known since i was about 13yrs of age, but never have i done drag or wanted to. or even gave the idea of the snip.
I am happy being gay and love my cock too and the idea of being a women spooks the s**t out of me.

I have been asked by a few female friends f i wanted to be a girl or feel like im a girl and i do not i feel like a normal 26yo lad who just likes a good cocking every few dayz lol

Question: As a gay man, do you feel like a woman in a man's body or want to be a woman?

My answer wasn't one of the options...not just "No"; but HELL NO!!!

However, having moved to eastern WA state 10 months ago from the San Francisco Bay Area; I am way past ready to feel a man trapped in MY body; or vice-versa. I guess beggars really can't be choosers.  If I could choose, hmmm, I'd only be able to narrow it down to about 10-15 guys, a motel room, a video crew and a 3-day weekend since I already have 10 months of lost to make up for...may I should throw in an IV feeding tube so I don't have to take any additional breaks for something as trivial as food.  Fucky Fucky Fucky

When young and naive, I thought my attraction to men meant that I was supposed to be a woman.  I didn't know that there were other options.  So glad that I found that there are men who simply love men!  I love my dick too much to give it up!

That's the way I feel, I like my body and my boy parts, but I sometimes feel like it would be easier for me to live if I were born a woman, so once in a while I fantasize about the thought what if I were a woman. I hope you folks get my idea LOL

I feel the same. While I do love taking it passively--especially from hung transformers, I've never felt an overwhelming desire to be female. Sure I have an imagination, and when I was younger I felt like I should of been born a girl, but I think puberty provided my male pride.

While I'd still like to try drag for fun, I feel I'm far too masculine and sexist to even make an attempt at a convincing female persona.

I have never felt like a woman trapped in a man's body at any time in my life. Even though I have an effeminate personality, I know that I am a man who likes men and I would hate to be a woman.

I'm happy giving and recieving with the body I've got.

feeling trapped in the wrong-gendered body sounds like the definition of transgendered, not necessarily homosexual (unless you are the very rare MTF lesbian or FTM fag). If you desire to change genders, or feel that you ended up with the wrong naughty bits, you are just as transgendered as a full post-op. Even if you never have surgery, our inner lives define gender and sexuality.

It's always been this way, but it's an idea that is gaining widespread acceptance in the non-queer community. Think about it this way...the new answer to the hoary "Nature vs Nurture" debate, the new paradigm answers "Who gives a fuck?"  Truly the best thing to come out of the sexual revolution.

I love men, i love my average body, i love my average dick, and i love my average asshole. I love men, I love their bodies, dicks, and holes--oh yeah, and i love their personalities too. And...I have a deep respect for the transgendered. I thought I had it rough just coming out as a gay man but that was a fucking cakewalk compared to the shitstorm of ignorance and judgement (and, oh yeah, lots of surgery) that this particular corner of our larger community has to deal with.

Definitely happy enough with owing a pennis  Smiley
I've never thought of being attracted to other guys in the context this guy put it.
On the contrary in fact it's the masculine element, the male to male dynamic that does it for me.
I reckon most of the gay guys I know feel the same way too.
Sounds like this fellow is mixing gay tendencies with trans-gender ones, clearly separate areas of sexual identity to my mind.

I am gay. To me that means I am a man, who has a penis (and loves it) that loves other men and their penis's. The thought of being a woman... disgusts me. I love my body... and I love what I can do with my body for myself and to other people. There are times, though, when I wish I was a woman... not because I want to be a female and I am trapped in my male body... but because it would be so much easier in our society to be a woman and be with men than be a man with a man. So thanks to all the bigots out there that beat the gay community up, lol wouldn't it be funny if because of the gay bashers the gays got sex changes... how ironic.

Definitely do not want to be a woman. This board admin must be looking for an explanation for his sexuality too hard - in the wrong place.

I wholeheartedly agree with both the statement and the dancing bananas.

Some gay men do have a bit more femininity or feminine side to them.  Other people are transgender and do indeed feel like they are the opposite sex trapped in their current gender, but I'm confident in saying that most gay men enjoy being men and have no desire to be any other gender.

Other: Sometimes. Sometimes I'll feel more feminine than masculine, it comes and goes and I just let it happen. I don't really care, just as long as I'm being honest about the way I feel.
