Activist: Having ‘genital preferences’ in dating is…transphobic

[Ed. – You’d automatically assume that it’s straight males the trans activist is upset with.  But he’s apparently really disappointed in lesbians who want their amorous interests to be biologically female.  Which sounds a whole lot like something from the 1950s, actually, and might, in a saner world, seem to make all kinds of sense — except we’re not in that saner world.  So instead of being, you know, normal, this person has to accuse lesbians of transphobia.]
