People have argued that to me. Literately calling me trans-phobic because I didn't have sexual interest in them.
I don't think you should perceive that your not having sexual interests in transgender people should incite anyone to call you homophobic on that basis alone. If you aren't interested in dating a gay man, they shouldn't call you out for being homophobic either. However, it can fit under the definition on the term as you are discerning them (labeling the whole) from everyone else. Merriam-Webster defines homophobia as 'an irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals,' and discrimination's secondary definition is defined as 'recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another' though on the basis of its main definition 'the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex,' you aren't being unjust as it's your personal preference that dictates your sexual preference.
