There's this program about transexuals finding love that's about to be broadcast in the UK, and in a clip the transwoman says (not exactly) "It confuses me why straight men get so afraid about what's down there (a cock)"...
Th very reason most of us straight guys won't go for a transwoman is because of the junk she has and how we're not attracted to it. Even if she still has it, we're still turned off by the fact that she used to.

No everyone is turned off by that. My brother is a FTM and has had many girlfriends. Sure, knowing they used to be a different gender is odd but that was in the past. It would be best not to dwell on it.0

People have changed the meaning of language. That's an observation, not a complaint.
But most people used 'woman' to mean 'someone with a vagina' and 'man' to mean 'someone with a penis'.
If someone with a penis was attracted to others with penises who identified as men, they viewed themselves as homosexual. If someone with a penis who identified as a man was attracted to people with vaginas who identified as women, they were 'heterosexual'.
Now I understand that these binary descriptions don't describe anyone. In fact, I'm friends with someone who was born intersex. Okay. And I recognize that we have, for example, people who happen to have a penis who view themselves and feel that they are women. That's fine. And they'd like to be recognized as women. THat's also fine.
But to then express surprise that heterosexual men aren't interested in them is to deliberately (or perhaps not, but its certainly loose with terms) pretend that heterosexual always meant 'attracted to women', when actually, it primarily means for most men 'attracted to humans with vaginas'. Most men seem to only be interested in women (new definition) who have vaginas. But the vagina is, for most though not all heterosexual men, critical.0
