Well, does a guy turning into a girl and become lesbian seems strange?

No because it's basically I never felt comfortable with being male but I also was only ever attracted to girls never liked a boy in my life

I thought it was strange until I realized I like guys who look like girls, aka traps. But I don't like regular looking guys.

Can you not use the word trap (seriously guys who kill trans girls who don't tell them they are trans is a huge issue look up trans panic) http://lgbtbar.org/what-we-do/programs/gay-and-trans-panic-defense/

So, if that's a "genuine" question, which are the fake questions?

(I'm being rhetoric, of course, you can spot the fake ones a mile off.)

Feminine male homosapien* no but really, if that offend you, you are going to have a bad time on the forums. There are a few vicious trolls here. And obviously in the context I'm using it, it's not meant as an offense. I can take a look at that article later if I remember. It's late

I think when you run into people finding it a hard idea to "get" it's because they don't really consider transwomen to be women. So if they don't think you are really a girl, then they won't think you can be lesbian (because by definition a lesbian is a girl/woman)

People still get hung up over gender labels because they expect a certain set of equipment in their partner's pants. You'll run into that even in the LGB portion of the LGBTQ community. And some people are just going to be jerks when they find out an assumption they made isn't as they initially thought.

Well, trap would imply there is intentional deceit, often meant to the anime or artist when portraying a fictional character like Hideyoshi from Baka Test. I wouldn't normally use when referring to actual people where deceit may or may not be intentional, or the hiding of truth as being done primarily for trickery.

I am not sure of the context, but I believe you, as well as share your interests.

Pretty much this (see quote).
Most people I've met that have a hard time digesting the whole idea behind a "transgender MtF lesbian" seem to struggle with the "biological male who identifies as a female who is still attracted to females" aspect of it. Seeing as these people tend to keep the view of "male to female" as "male who crossdresses" in most situations (especially down here in the southern states), they haven't the capacity to wrap their head around the idea of a transgender female (who was once a male) who is still attracted to females.

From their perspective, it's a mental disorder or "liberal craziness" that encourages "men" who are cross-dressing to identify as "transgender" ... I'm sure you've seen enough like-minded posts on this forum to understand this.

It's not strange at all. In fact it's very common (although not universal). Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation are two quite different things. One is about Identity. The other is about attraction and making love.

Just as OEM girls can be lesbian so can t-girls.

If you have any trans support groups in your area they will remind you of this and teach you a lot of other interesting things.

I think it's fine, being/becoming a girl and liking girls are two separate things, no one said you can't do both
