Late Night Randomness Yet Again

Reading some more history of the Stonewall uprising I was struck yet again by how many people even among radical gays conflate sexual orientation and gender identity. The two are most defiantly NOT the same. Take say a Male to Female transsexual, if as a man she was attracted to women, and thus considered straight, she would as a woman still be sexual attracted to women and now be considered a lesbian, This simple fact seems to have eluded many supposedly deep thinkers who still think of all trans-women as confused effeminate gay men and all trans-men as confused butch lesbians when they thin k of trans-men at all. Cthulhu only knows what they would think of me, a gender queer pansexual, I’m all over the place.
