  • I do consider it an offensive term.
  • I consider it to be a descriptive term. It is neutral in its offensiveness to me.
  • Yes ,I really do think its weird anyway + 5
  • Not really. I think if we called them "hermies," that'd be slightly more offensive. I don't think there can be an offensive word for them though...they chose to be that way...it's not like most situations where offensive words are involved.
  • Yes, I consider it an offensive term.
  • I do think it is offensive. It is not an appopriate description, IMO, for someone.
  • Offensive and lazy language.
  • No. They are offensive to males and females every where.
  • It is offensive, mainly because it's typically used in a sarcastic or demeaning way. It's not even an accurate description; only the reinforcement of a stereotype based on ignorance.
  • I call them mister sisters, they don't seem to mind at all.
  • I think it can depend upon the type of "feeling" that is being put with it....I've heard good friends in the LGBT community refer to each other that way, and they weren't trying to be hurtful...they were friends! But anything said WITH HATE or HURTFULNESS intended, can and likely WILL be offensive and mean.
  • Yes. I prefer Trans-gendered or whatever their status is. She-male is what the ignorant people use.
  • Sounds derogative to me.
  • Yes, very offensive and usually used in the incorrect context by people that really do not know exactly what it means.
  • idk really. My girlfriend and I call her a "boy-girl" and refer to other masculine lesbians as boy-girl's so... idk.
  • no, I don't consider it derogatory...but then I'm just gay...not a shemale.
  • how about Lentleman
  • I think most would consider it offensive, because those who use it are using it in a sarcastic and demeaning way, and they are usually homophobes.
  • I think that it is offensive to both men and women.
  • Neither. I simply find it confusing. Is it supposed to refer to a woman who is manly in her demeanor and carriage, or to a effeminate male. After this issue is cleared up for me, I might find it offensive if it is applied to me, but I don't expect that to happen. It might simply be a very appropriate descriptive term, unless it is meant to deride and offend - THAT would make it derogatory and offensive - the intent carries the insult. So, as it stands, it is neither, to me anyway, but some people can take anything and turn it into a slur. My ex-wife resented being called "Princess", for example, and I never intended anything derogatory or offensive by it. I have also taken the mind that being offended is a choice that some people make, regardless of the facts. If they would choose to not be offended, no offense would be taken. Once again, we simply have to force ourselves to rise above the crap that litters this world, and not roll around in it.
  • It's typically used in pornography. I have known a few and hope to visit an friend of mine in Denver soon. I've used the term because people don't know MTF, transgendered, katoey/kartoey/kathoey, etc. They know "tranny" or "chicks with dicks" or "ladyboy" "drag queen" (even though this isn't accurate) and there are many misconceptions. Some are offended by t-girl, other use the term as a source of pride. My primary attraction is to the third sex and I've had trouble from heterosexuals, bisexuals, and homosexuals for my preference. I've been greatly offended by a professor at UNC who counseled pre-ops when he described them in such a way that made them sound like some sort of freaks. I dropped the course the first day because of that man's remarks.
  • Not at all. I consider it a descriptive form just like I would suppose He-women, the direst opposite of this term for you know what to be descriptive as var as terms go. As far as you go I would describe you as a Shelby Chick +++
  • I say no. Magic 8-ball says "Outlook Good". Stupid 8-ball.
  • Yes, I do.
  • IMO it is offensive when the person that says it is a bigot. In reality, a she-male is a person with rights to be whatever they want to be and love whoever they are in love with. What they do in their bedroom is their business!
  • Generally, yes. Even though some individuals self-identify with the term, I find its use in pornography to make it generically offensive.
  • Personally I do. But i am sure some don't. For one, i think the term tends to associate with pornography, for another, i consider myself a "female", nothing more, nothing less, and certainly not both. So yes, the term is derogatory/offensive to me.
  • I would rather stay as far away from it as I can myself, but, no, its not a derogatory term.
  • yes it is derogatory, I am a man that enjoys relationships with pre op Traansgendered ladies.
  • As long as you don't call me a MAN!!
  • Yes she-males is an offensive word for transgender people. People should really be aware of the language used. There are number of terms previously used to describe transgender people that are now considered to be outdated, as many of them are offensive. You can find a list of words that should not be used here: https://www.vivastreet.co.uk/blog/transgender-why-language-matters/
