Another part is that trans feminists like myself believe that any discussion of transmisogyny must center around trans women ourselves.I don’t agree with Laverne Cox (for once in my life) when she says that men who date trans women “But neither can I pretend that you live your life totally free from the violence and humiliation that a transmisogynistic culture attaches to my body – a body that you have touched and held and become associated with. Dating trans women is no more like paying for time with a trans escort than dating a cisgender woman is like paying for time with a cisgender escort. There are some stereotypes that if you expect them, you may be in for a rude awakening. That doesn't mean that the way she behaves around you is a genuine reflection of her personality, or that you see 100% of her personality. But you're getting what you're paying for which is an opportunity to engage in your fantasy. While we all share a unifying trait of having been assigned male at birth (AMAB) after that, we get pretty different pretty quickly.
I am bi, but – in truth – have currently only been dating men.
While I cannot find the origin of this statistic, I do believe it is accurate.
However, even if a marriage doesn't end, the statistic doesn't tell the whole story.
For most marriages I am aware of, transition is the end of sex. Some choose celibacy, others open the marriage up, others choose a version of polyamory.
This lack of intimacy is usually a source of friction, and contributes to the sense of loss felt by both partners.
