"Trans Chasers, are men that'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, but fifty cents for your soul." -Sabrina Samone

While we as transgender people desire, love, respect and companionship;” Tranny Chasers” are the bane of Trans existence. Ask any trans-woman respectfully and she could tell anyone the stresses of enduring a life plagued with t-chasers. Unfortunately, many out and open trans-women, are commonly preyed upon by these abusive ignoramuses. Due largely to these ignorant cretins, the public has been handed a misinformed view of what it means to be Trans.
What that says to me is that because of the very same men that have a hyper sexualized fantasy, of Trans people are more to blame for the explosion of the transgender sex industry. Transgender porn is currently the fastest growing form of porn. Because of laws preventing easier ways of changing legal documents, many transgender people find themselves trapped in the sex industry, desired, yet degraded by these types of men. Leaving mainstream society to label us more than ever, as constant sexual creatures that should be rightfully denied equality; down to a growing urge to deny many transgender people the correct restroom matching their presented gender. Even the transgender community itself has been torn by these exploiters of trans-feminine beauty. Dividing those in the sex industry from being fully accepted by the mainstream transgender society, who blames them for the over sexualized image of the transgender person. That is image is all because of the “T-Chaser” who claim to worship us. Transgender people should not be blamed for T-chasers sexual fantasies gone wild.
How do you know when you’re faced with someone with a sincere interest in you as a person and not as a “thing to explore?” What do the words of a chaser really mean? After discussing this with several online transgender women, a post of questions on a popular Trans dating site, I’ve come up with a quick beware list of what chaser’s say and what it really means.
What a T-chaser says:
Translation: I want to sleep with you, your roommate, your best friends, your trans-sisters, mama, daughter, nieces, your fellow showgirl friends, your trans-acquaintances…
3. I never been with a t-girl, but would like to try.
5. I’m looking for a long term relationship with specifically, a t-girl:
Translation: This is really a 2 am booty call. I'll never meet you and take you out on a proper date because I don't respect you the same way I respect a cis-woman, you're less to me.
