We may as well go an take the "T" out of the "GLBT", because as far as I can see, and for the most part - transwomen are discriminated against, and are received with a perception of mistrust from the lesbian community.
Now I know this doesn't apply to all lesbian ciswomen, but from what I have heard from many in the trans-community - the repoire ain't pretty. Which is something I really don't understand, since for the most part, I can't seem to bat them off me when I go out. But this is usually without my trans-predisposition being disclosed, so I haven't really seen it in person.
I have spoken to some lesbian transwomen indepth about the subject, and they don't leave much to the imagination. I have been told stories of how a transwomans femininity, and womanhood is often questioned by some lesbian ciswomen. How their agenda, genuiness, and integrity are often brought into question when a transwoman is considered by some lesbian ciswomen.
Quite frankly, the whole matter is beyond me, I'm not lesbian, so I can only speak on what I have seen. And for the most part, I have been sadly disappointed.
Most of the lesbian ciswomen I have know are real genuine, DTE kinda folk. Really intouch with themselves, and the reality of people. But what I have been made aware of, is the malcontent and almost bigot mindset some lesbian ciswomen have, and quite frankly I find it as narrow, and ignorant as any oppressive male. It stinks of hypocracy, and double-standards, and really, for lack of a better word, sucks!
