Because of systematic cultural biases including those of researchers this is a field that is largely mis-attributed and miscounted.

--220.127.116.11 (talk) , 12 March 2013 (UTC) @Benjiboi - For pre-op transwomen who have sex with men the HIV transmission rates actually *do* have something to do with their bodies.
They don't have a vagina so they are more likely to engage in receptive anal sex than women (or heterosexual men) -- and so they are more likely to get HIV.
And because they have a penis they are more likely to engage in insertive anal sex -- and so they are more likely to pass on HIV. But even if all the discrimination were to magically go away -- pre-op transwoman and MSM would be a relatively small and relatively sexually isolated group for which a relative high percentage engage in anal sex and role reversal. What we're learning is that, as far as the underlying cause of HIV levels are concerned: a high percentage of anal sex and role reversal are the key differences when comparing MSM communities to most highly promiscuous heterosexual communities.Hoping To Help (talk) , 1 November 2009 (UTC)This may be true, however we need reliable sources to show that (i) pre-op transwomen are classified and studied for these statements.This article is within the scope of Wiki Project Sexuality, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of human sexuality on Wikipedia.If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.This article is of interest to Wiki Project LGBT studies, which tries to ensure comprehensive and factual coverage of all LGBT-related issues on Wikipedia.For more information, or to get involved, please visit the project page or contribute to the discussion.
