If a trans person is bi-curious, who do they like?

snowminx snowminx
I was one day looking at a profile that said she was a shemale but bi-curious. Now would that mean that person-
(A) is attracted to females like before they decided to be a shemale
Or
(B) mean that person identified themselves as gay before becoming a shemale and identify themselves as bi-curious now because they still like males but take on the role of a woman now?
(obviously with both of these have a interest of trying something with the opposite gender of the one they know they like)

Sorry if this is confusing or if you think I'm just stupid, I just couldn't figure this out no matter how much I thought about it. =/

The way I see it, it doesn't specifically mean either. If someone (of any gender) says they're bi-curious, it doesn't necessarily mean that they originally viewed themselves as straight and are now questioning. They could have also originally viewed themselves as gay and are now questioning it. Either way, they're broadening their horizons and becoming more open to new experiences.

That's why I said "(obviously with both of these have a interest of trying something with the opposite gender of the one they know they like)"
I'm trying to ask who do they mainly like, if you're bi curious you know you like this kind of person but are curious about another. If you're a shemale who do you manly date?

First of all, did the person specifically identify themselves as a "shemale" because that's usually a very offensive slur towards male assigned at birth trans* people and unless that's their identity in which case that's up to them, I would greatly discourage you from calling anyone a shemale unless they have specifically told you that's what they prefer but most trans women i've met prefer to be called....well....wome n (or AMAB Woman for technical purposes meaning assigned male at birth but identifying as a woman and should be referred to as a woman)

And it depends on the person. Sexual identity and gender identity are not actually reliant on each other so they could either be someone who has been attracted to men primarily and are curious about women or the opposite. You can't know unless they tell you what their orientation was before identifying as bicurious.

Basically, since this is a matter of sexual orientation and their transgendered status is not called into play, you can read this as you would any woman you came across and contact them respectfully if you want further clarification.

GONE! GONE!
Ummm what Hedgehugs said. I would assume that the woman in question is probably referring to an interest in other women if she called herself bi-curious.
On a random side note, people don't decide to be transgender.

Well....first off if they identified as a shemale chances are they are not trans, they are more than likely CD (crossdresser) or transvestite, as of the hundreds of trans-persons I've spoken to online or met in support groups, I can guarantee that every one of them would say that someone who coins themselves as 'shemale' is not trans, and would find the term offensive...

That being said, it depends on the gender they more identify as. If they identify as female, then they'd have most likely preferred men and vice versa. It's also possible that they previously identified as gay, which would mean that if they also identified as female they would've been interested in women, and vice versa. There are a lot of variables to this, so you'd really have to get to know the person better. You can't really say that something is always one way or another when it comes to issues of gender identity or sexual orientation.

Yes this person did have in their profile "shemale" not just saying they were trans. That person decided to have implants done in the chest area but didn't get the full operation.
