As a teen with a Ft M (female to male transgender) writes,"I just turned 18 a couple days ago. Here’s the thing, sexual orientation tends to line up with the gender of the person that you are attracted to not with their biological sex.I have been dating a Ft M for about five months but just found out that he is a Ft M yesterday. So if you identify as straight and are attracted to men, dating someone who is FTM doesn’t mean that you are a lesbian.
Thurst is an up and coming app for queer, trans and gender nonconforming individuals.
Finding a dating site that is right for you may take time, but will be well worth it in the long run.
Gender identity is how someone feels about their gender assignment.
Sexual orientation, being lesbian, gay, bisexual or straight refers to who you are attracted to.
So if you have an FTM partner, you could definitely identify as straight, even if he has biologically female anatomy, since his gender identity is male. Don't hold back because of the way he was born.
