Do you believe a transgendered person has a moral obligation to reveal it before the first date?


If you asked someone out on a date or were asked out by someone would you want to know they are transgendered (prior to going out)? If a transgendered person has to continually announce their original birth gender to others do you believe they can ever truly feel their transition is complete?

    I agree. There is no intention to offend anyone by simply stating when (you) would like to be notified. There is no "right" or "wrong" when it comes to one's personal preference. Thanks for your answer.

    Thanks for the correction in terminology but I'm unable to edit the question at this point.

    Based upon your answer (you) wouldn't want or need to know if you were going out with a transgender person on a first date. You may be in the minority.

    "I personally would not want to waste my time or anyone else's in a romantic way and would possibly even feel that I was tricked if I were to be told by them later rather than sooner."

    Good point! Everyone has their own idea of proper decorum

    I believe most people (assume) if you look like a male or female you were born that way which explains why the subject would not likely come up. Some folks might call it lying by omission. Other folks like you don't mind. Thanks for your answer!

    My guess is most people today still do (assume) one's gender.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Most people seem to be answering this question from the view point of the transgender person. The other half of the question is would (you) want to know in advance of going out with someone or not, or even on the first date?

    Thanks for your answer. Some people have indicated they wouldn't need or want to know in advance. There really is no "right" or "wrong' answer. Everyone is entitled to have their own preference to be informed early on or not.
