I suggest you ...

Rename Shemale category

Call it "Trans". Just rename it "Trans" already! People aren't stupid—they will figure out what is going on. Imagine if the "Gay" section was called the "Homo" section.

I know this has been brought up already, but I'm bringing it up again to make a point that I haven't seen made: TRANS PEOPLE WATCH PORN TOO. I'm a trans woman and this is MY porn site too. A lot of the time, I want to see a woman like me in the porn I watch, and when that's the case, I don't want to have to click on this fucking word anymore.

        "telling people to mentally grow up"
        "Still crying about labels like a liberal"

        Fuck the quality of the porn on this site, labels are still more important! Why don't you have the canadian police arrest us for calling people shemales?

        It's funny how the ones who keep calling themselves "straight" continue to bash people with a different mindset. If you're so straight a post like this should never bother you at all or even bother you so much that you feel the need to comment under it with your trolling attitude. Sounds to me like you so-called "straight" guys are confused af and are very much insecure about your own sexuality you had to take it out on a Trans. You "straight-confused" folks need to mentally grow up. I bet you feel really damn good and powerful being around your computer bullying innocent people. Btw this is coming from a bisexual guy who's in no way attracted to trans, but I'm just tired of seeing cyberbullying...

        I am also a trans woman who would like to see this change.
        Pornhub managed to use appropriate language in their sexual wellness site, why can't they do so on the main site too?

        Your just confused. Like the one dude said whining liberals are fucking everything up. You just need help to working on your issues. Faggots are disturbed

        Fuck you whining liberals, go back to your bathrooms.
        All the garbage porn out there with the suppression of good stuff, and all you whining faggots care about is the labels.

        PH, it's simply put:

        Imagine if the Gay catagory was called 'faggots'. That's the equivilent here.

        Also, there are no categories for including trans men/FtM, so changing the catagory to 'Trans/gender' would be really inclusive!

        It's cool that you have your education blog, now if only your site would reflect that education...!

        The people who are most likely to murder trans people for being trans, are people who are ashamed of being attracted to them, and most likely, watches trans porn. So those people see "shemale" and think nothing of it.. or reinforces the stigmatization of trans people, making it further dangerous.. this is a bigger, much more serious topic than people really realize.... for the love of trans people who make you money pornhub... PLEASE CHANGE "SHEMALE" TO "TRANS"

        wow...triggered cunts on pornhub

      • Pervert Rapist commented  · 

        Now I really want to name they gay category the homo category, or the faggots

      • Gwen commented  · 

        I couldn't agree more. Most of the time I'm numb to it because it's been called that for so long, but it's degrading and I loathe it.

        I actually like how xhamster has three major categories for "Straight", "Gay", and "Trans", they then go on to screw it up by putting "crossdressers" in the "Gay" category and using "shemale" all over the place in the "trans" category.

        +Straight
        - existing categories

        + Gay
        - existing categories, minus any trans-women (surprisingly, gay men usually like watching men, so while ftm may make some sense here, certainly not crossdressers or mtf)

        + Trans
        - ftm and mtf categories
        - crossdressers / sissies, etc
        - many of the categories found in the other main categories can be used here as well, like "fetish", "bondage", etc.
        - NO MORE SHEMALES

        Agreed. There's something about PH that makes it possible for me to carve out an unabashedly queer and feminist identity in porn viewership that I otherwise can't on comparable services. Which is COOL! There hasn't always been room for that. I've also read a bunch of interviews/AMAs/etc. with your staff, who all seem pretty woke AF, if not punx/self-identified feminists outright.

        Degradation can be a fun part of sex—like, sure, call me a slut just begging for dick if we're banging it out! But this is different—shemale is just a gross and antiquated slur meant to undermine the legitimacy of a trans person's livelihood.

        The future is definitely queer and it would be rad to see PH make changes proactively rather than reactively, because it's gonna have to happen eventually. Also, imagine how fucking huge it could be for PH to change how it chooses to talk about trans people? You could unconsciously impact how a whole generation of straight white teenage (or lbr, pre-teen) dudes think about trans people. You'd be calling them PEOPLE! It would be implied they have agency!

        Please Pornhub. Help make the next generation better. Prevent the next Donald Trump <3
