Is a biological man who is gay discriminating against a transman if he says he only dates biological men?

No, because it makes no sense to speak of "discrimination" in the context of dating. A heterosexual woman who doesn't date women isn't discriminating against women, the way an employer who won't hire women as doctors, teachers, etc. is discriminating against them.

Or if you want to insist that these are both cases of "discrimination," then I'd say "OK, that just means that there are some kinds of 'discrimination' which are innocuous, and other kinds which are invidious."

A heterosexual woman who doesn't date women is still a woman like a transwoman. Transwomen discriminate against women and lesbians

I've been in the restaurant industry, and I've worked around musicians, for over three decades.
Both these fields have a disproportionately high ratio of open homosexuals per capita.
I have worked in restaurants where I was the only heterosexual on the staff.
Being so closely associated with gay folks, I've picked up a fairly good gaydar... which is pinging furiously at your posts.
So... Are you gay?

Given that this thread is the very first time I've heard the idea/question, I'm pretty sure you just made that up.
Nope, it can be seen with LGB Alliance and Stonewall UK. The LGB Alliance point out that lesbians dont have any sexual attraction to transwomen, because of course transwomen are men. Already posted it three times I think, plus a link

You will have to keep up.

Or I'll have to start caring about what gay/transgender activist groups in other countries say. I'm not going to, though.

Maybe you should find a message board for such things.

Well you wont get the bigger picture then.

But anyway now you know the discrimination is by the imaginary lgbtqi+ ideology against LGB as much as everyone else

Nevertheless, there are women who are partners of transwomen, just as there are women who are partners of trans men. What you or anybody else says about their personal preferences doesn't change that.

Totally ludicrous. Not dating someone is not discrimination. He is simply expressing his personal opinion. Maybe he just doesn't like men with small hands. As with most of your posts, it is a totally made up "controversy" having no link to real life whatsoever.

The fact is this is the world where we all live in now and all groups are protected under law especially in California where I reside. Personally I'm against the lgbtq from a moral position but I do not let my personal beliefs effect my work or personal interaction with anyone in that group. I'm a licensed cosmetologist since 1980 and no longer work in a salon but I was in the minority as heterosexual male. I have several friends who are lgbtq and I don't let my personal beliefs interfere with those relationships. What someone does with his/her life is up to them and its none of my business. That is my 2 cents fwiw.

Nevertheless the point was the so called lgbt community is at war over it.
Transwomen are men so will need to refer to the sex not the gender when discussing with us or we wont necessarily know whether you are imagining things.
