Psychology Today ran an article this week titled “Are trans people excluded from the world of dating?” by Karen L. Blair, a psychologist from St. Francis Xavier University.

Specifically, it sought if a person would date a cisgender man (a biological man who identifies as a man), cisgender woman, transgender man, transgender woman, or someone who does not identify with a specific gender.
