I am amused at the transvestite, cross-dresser, and non-transitioned transgender crowd as they prattle on about "passing privilege" and "gold standard transsexuals" and yada, yada, yada. yada, and more yadas. Like others with fetishes they see themselves as being "part" of the community that is transsexual. Ah, no you are not.
We have late 50's men announcing they are transitioning and of course they know immediately all things womanly and begin to preach to all and humorously accuse those that have walked the entire path "men" when in simple point of fact they are "still" men. That is typical male privilege at its finest. I have a tally-whacker so I know more about being a woman than any woman could possibly know and then of course they throw out the "you are not a woman" claim as they get excited in the wife's panties.
On the other hand they actually may be transsexual but the first rule is you know nothing of this path until you have walked it. Walk it, get your surgery and then live for a while. Talk about transition if you want "once you start" transition and just remember your transvestite forays into the "real" world do not count. You should be asking question and not answering them or offering opinions on subjects you have no firsthand knowledge of.
There is an "angry cross-dresser" spouting off about "passing privilege" and the "gold standard" transsexual which is akin to a fence post attempting to discuss "special relativity" with Einstein. The ironic part is they actually think they have the right. Simply put, you are playing a game you silly little boy. Your game is wearing girls clothes and pretending to emulate women. If things do not work out so well on a foray into life as a girl you can just go back to being the guy you are and always will be. You have a safety net that is not available to those truly born transsexual so STFU.
Simply put passing is important to "most" transsexuals. Some of us are lucky and some not so lucky. It is the seedy sad side of this tragedy of being born transsexual. FFS can cure some of the issues but not all of them. Transvestites and cross-dressers want to be protected so they can play out their little fetish fantasy on the "real" streets of life just like transsexuals. Again you are playing a game and transsexuals are living a life they have no choice over.
This has just happened actually. One person "announced" his de-transition and closed his blog down but re-opened it at the suggestion of a friend. Now, why anyone needs to read about some fool that made a mistake is beyond me but compounding the mistake of growing breasts, hormones are good at that, and getting a female driver's license ( a travesty IMHO) and then deciding to transition back to male and then discuss it all and also give advice to everyone on all subjects related to transsexual issues is to put it mildly weird. Unless he is trying to warn other transvestites not to go down his path he should slink into fairytale land with the rest of the fetish crowd.
I will always be baffled why people who have never walked this path or have not even started it think they have even the remotest idea what is involved. Talk about the blind attempting to lead the way!
I will always be baffled how some late transitioner suddenly decides they are a feminist when if their male life was examined they would probably be classified as assholes to women. Even if they were not they excelled with "male privilege" and know nothing of what we women fought to get against that male privilege.
I will always be baffled why transvestites and cross-dressers think transsexuals have anything in common with them. Well we are all homo sapiens although sometimes i wonder.
I will always be baffled why people talk about transsexual issues like they pertain to transvestites, cross-dressers, and gender variant people. They do not but then nobody can convince a fool of anything. It is why they are fools.
I am baffled how GLAAD gets to decide what words are pejoratives. Transvestite is not a pejorative but then why would a fetish bound fool want to be reminded of it. "Tranny" is a pejorative but just a slight clue. Tranny is solely for the use of transsexuals and not for the transvestite/trans crowd. Get your own world.
I am baffled why we must use she and her for transvestites and cross-dressers and not doing so is derogatory. Are you not still men? Does playing girl mean you are a girl? I think not. Doing so insults us women.
I am baffled by the people that seem to need a built in excuse for transitioning. It is like a kid telling the teacher "his dog ate his homework". Actually the dog excuse has a higher probability of being true than the bee-sting and sudden feminization gang. I did notice there was another sudden feminizing incident. Is it not odd these incidents all happen with married men with children that need the excuse? Silly me.
I am baffled when i read of the sudden onset of transsexualism. The DSM made this possible when it catered to the "super transvestite" crowd that needed an excuse late in life to go "all the way". They only need to have felt "gender identity issues for several years. How convenient that is and how profitable that is for all the shrinks and money men in the business of sex changes. One does not suddenly become transsexual. One is born transsexual .
I am baffled that we have not had someone have a partial liver transplant or a kidney transplant come forward and claim they were from a woman and made them transsexual. It seems like a built in "foolproof" excuse for some.
I am baffled when I read claims of sudden feminization and then see pictures of said "suddenly feminized" man and they are as feminine as a 300 pound defensive lineman in the NFL with a face to match. One must wonder if the little boobies that "might" have grown resulted from some clandestine purchase of hormones considering not one of the cases has been legitimately verified. One must wonder why those men feminized by working in birth control pill factories didn't en mass run out and get sex changes. Now that is a little odd isn't it.
I am baffled why everyone is so enthralled by gender bender models. A little clue. It happened in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and will continue to happen. It is what it is and will be that way until the fashionistas decide curves on women actually matter.
I am still baffled why so many transsexuals end up lesbian. Then again if one has been a woman for 40+ years and listened to men talk there may be a reason. Men are obsessed with girl on girl action. I cannot tell you how many times over the years when girl friends and I hugged that some guy commented "maybe we will get some lesbian action" in many variations. Men are fascinated and obsessed by it. Maybe it is another transvestite fantasy for a heterosexual transvestite to get "really" into some good lesbian action. by physically being one of the lesbians. Most lesbians are not fond of MTF lesbians. I wonder why?
I am baffled why I am even baffled by all of this. Jerry Springer has made a fortune out of all of this. Kind of sad but predictable.
