Don’t trust Sarah on this one, folks! Her logic is flawed, the people we meet through life is far from a random distribution. You often end up in environments where people have something in common with you, like in college, a convention, a fan-fiction website…

Still, I’m guilty of having done this kind of calculations, often with depressing results, no matter how generous I was with the estimates. And even if I can’t deny that being trans and lesbian lowers the fraction of people available as a partner by a big amount, I’m sure I’ll find the right person, somehow, sometime, somewhere… maybe.
