Opening sentence: someone is exclusively heterosexual, homosexual or asexual with one exception.

Isn't "asexual with one exception" Single-Target Sexuality?

Would continuing to be attracted to a transgender after their transformation fall under this category? For example, a man is dating a girl who turns out to be a FTM (female-to-male) but he's completely supportive of his partner and even continues to be attracted to him even when he looks clearly male or at least androgynous, but this male is otherwise straight.

Seems like it would be.

Let's pick a new pic. This one's more like "Even The Lesbians Want Him because he's a Memetic Sex God" than "one character averts Incompatible Orientation (or other discouraging factor) for just one other character".

Why dont we use real life examples? It isnt a negetive trope, is it? I remember an autobiographical webcomic that used this trope, so you cant put it on here as a webcomic without it also being real life, right?

Edit: Found webcomic, its called DAR!

No, that would be fine, because it's an actual published work. The fact that it's autobiographical is neither here nor there (and indeed, many "autobiographies" may be largely or even completely fictional, and we don't really care one way or the other about that either, at least for troping purposes).

I think the "no real life examples" rule in this case is less about negativity and more about preventing the section from turning into "Troper Tales in all but name". Like the section might quickly fill up with entries like:

  • This Troper is a happily married straight girl, but she'd do Angelina Jolie in a heartbeat!
