This Guy's Response to Finding Out a Potential Date Is Trans Has People Divided

By

It's a "problematic" trope that's been seen in countless movies, TV shows, and even written about in songs: the ire, embarrassment, and anger a guy feels once he discovers a person he's attracted to is transgender.

In fact, Jim Carrey's Ace Ventura: Pet Detective recently came under fire once fans who revisited the movie discovered just how much that fear of the trans community was used as a recurring joke in the movie.

Back when I was in the online dating game and swiping right like a madman on Tinder, I even came across people who I discovered were trans in my conversations with them. I have to admit I was uncomfortable with the idea of potentially entering into a relationship with someone who is trans and couldn't entertain it seriously, so I would end it right then and there and just respond less frequently to their messages.
