This can probably go into >>186179
But to answer your question. Science shows trans people are delusional, that there's no way for the brain to realize something -should- be there that you weren't born with( the dysphoria is a mental issue, and 'gender' as in society is a learned behavior. Of course they just parrot what they see in the media.
>>203215>Trans women admitting they have a mental disorder that needs to be treated, that know that, even with the most successful surgeries, can't still be women but feel comfortable presenting that way
>Trans women screaming they're real women, that they want to be women only because they don't "feel" masculine (read as = don't like their gender roles), that they need special spaces, that say that their penis is "a woman penis", that transition only to look like your basic bitch because they just like the aesthetic and lifestyle, that act stereotypically like women (screaming, squealing, "slaaaaayyyy" etc) and standing up for women problems (such menstruating, childbirth)
In the ocean with a brick they go
Exactly. They often say shit like "As a child I always loved dolls, pink, dresses" etc etc
I'm a proud to be woman, I despise pink and I love blue, I love having stereotypically masculine interests (technology/science) and I hate skirts and dresses, not because they're too "woman like" but because I don't feel comfortable with them.
In my house, me and my bf do both chores (we cook, clean etc), does that make me a trans male? Just because I don't like being forced on a gender role?
My exact way of thinking.
Especially I know this ""trans girl"" (more like autoginephiliac) that failed so much at being a male that now lives as a female.
A stereotypical female.
Buys make up (which terribly clashes with his face) and feminine clothes who fit terribly because you know, he doesn't have boobs or hips and walks with pumps and stuff.
Not saying that those are exclusive of a woman' but imagine waking up one day realizing you're living a lie.
If I was trans, I would rather die that having a fake penis to "blow" or mutilate off my healthy body.
It can be mean and edgy, but sometimes I'm kinda glad they get surgery and then realize it was all wrong.
Cure yourself with therapy for accepting your body, don't mutilate it, you'll never be a real woman, no matter how hard you try or your feelings are hurt.
There are two types of trans - the tumblr and the "sane". Tumblr trans deserves no respect whatsoever, they deserve a smack to the face.
Trans people with actual dysphoria… I'm not sure. I respect them as people and wish them the best, but it's still a mental disturbance. They can be assholes if they're into social justice, and their stereotyping of women is harmful as hell, but I don't exactly hate them. I just think their existence is problematic
It also makes me mad and unfeminine women are being pressured into transitioning/convinced they're trans. Whatever happened to feminism?>>203263>sometimes I'm kinda glad they get surgery and then realize it was all wrong.
edgy as fuck but I feel the same. It feels right, in the sense of "a correct/expected outcome to a situation". Not morally good, I don't think it's a good thing for anyone to suffer like that, but it shows that they still have some sense in them.
Ya, I respect them as a person, not as a _trans_ person.
It's still a mental disorder.
I still respect schizophrenic people, but I don't tell them to give in into their illness and stab themselves like their voice in their head says them to do.
Trans is a mental disorder that needs to be cured, not excused.
They used to have my concern/sympathy, until they all but took over feminism and now you basically aren't allow to speak unless you have a boi pucci. Which is ridiculous, given that women make up 1/2 of the population, and trans people make up such a small minority.
Bring up one single even slightly controversial issue, and you're automatically labelled a TERF.
I also hate how they spread false stats to make themselves look oppressed. Cis women for example are just as likely to be murdered as MTFs. The stats are almost the same.
MTFs also have the same sexual offence rate of cis men, which is why I don't think they should be allowed into women's bathrooms. There have been lots of cases of cis girls and women being raped or assaulted in the female toilets, by men in drag.
It's a mental illness. I don't think I've ever met a trans person who acted 'sane'. I feel bad for the fact they will face a lifetime of painful surgery. self mutilation, depression, dysphoria and ridicule. But they are so misogynistic and envious of cis women, my sympathy has mostly dried up, really. They can still be nice people, but there's always seems to be an undercurrent of resentment and woman-hating anger on their part.
What do you think of men?*
But really I only see them as delusional fetishists
The guys and girls who like them are the same
I don't get why most feminists are so accepting of them either, same with drag queens. They're practically making fun of women 24/7 and drag queens do as their job, it's cringey and gross
I'm pretty sick of them tbh. I've never met a trans man I didn't like but trans women are such caricatures of women that it's insulting. I hate how intersectional feminism has become the norm and feminists are lumped in with lgbt and blm issues. I've been called a terf and swerf plenty of times but idgaf. Feminism, by definition, is about women. What trans women and black people go through can overlap, sure, but they're still seperate issues and I wish people would leave then that way.
I hear all of this talk that they're "breaking gender norms". How the fuck is perfectly adhering to a gender stereotype in any way challenging it? I'd understand if they were men who dressed like women but they genuinely believe that they're women with all this "female brain" pseudo science. I'm sorry, but your brain isn't wired from birth to want stick on nails or blue eyelids or 6 inch heels. Why has no trans women ever quietly transitioned into a woman who wears suit pants or sweaters? Why are they always covered head to toe in fetish items like pigtails, mini skirts, stocking and basically anything you'd see on a hooker/porn star? I've no problem with people transitioning but maybe do some research and stop relying on porn?
They always carry their misogynistic beliefs over with them no matter how hard they try to insist they were born girls. They always feel so entitled to women's only spaces even though I don't see trans men doing the same. It makes me uncomfortable but ofc a m2f trans person's feelings should always take priority over mine because they were once male and that makes them centre of the universe. I see a lot of hate towards "cis" women which wouldn't happen of it was genuine and not a fetish for them, they'd want to befriend us if they genuinely felt they were one of us. They always stick to themselves in little hug boxes where they can tell each other that they pass well as women because God forbid a one of the people they're trying to impersonate actually gives them some advice or a little tip.
There's a campaign in my country for abortion rights (it's banned here in all cases and punishable by a prison sentance so it's very important) and ofc trans women had to stick their noses into that. Now we can't make any signs that show wombs or other female reproductive parts, we can't write the words and we can't chant about them because ~some women don't have those parts~ okay then WHY ARE THEY AT MARCHES FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS? If you go to one, expect that there will be signs depicting the body parts we're fighting to own control of for ourselves and if you can't control your testosterone then stay at home. Seriously how can they claim to be women who care about reproductive rights when they don't want women to have ownership of their own body parts? Join a pro life group if you want to censor paintings of vaginas and tell women how to live their lives, cunts.

I think "traps" have taken over the idea of transwomen. I think transwomen genuinely want to be left alone and not be harassed. They genuinely ARE women but understand the differences between them and biological women.
What I constitute as a trap are men crossdressing because they fetishize/cater to those who fetishize transwomen or are are lowkey misogynists who think they're better than biological women. They refuse bottom surgery and insist that transphobia is the only reason straight men/lesbian women/etc. don't want to date/fuck them. Traps encourage the idea that transwomen want to "trick" or rape people by surprising them with a dick, increasing aggression against transwomen. They shove themselves into female spaces, screeching about womanhood, speaking as if they have any authority on female biological functions.
I joined a Facebook group for women and girls who are sponsored by Google to go to a female-focused tech conference and this person was in it…what the actual fuck, I'm infuriated. Their profile picture and posts should've gotten them disqualified, but beyond that they get to parade around with young girls when they are obviously a mentally unstable male. I feel very unsafe and I'm afraid of speaking out about it. If you are not passing, you should not be considered for women's scholarships.
You also can't live your entire life as a man, then decide you are a woman and expect me to relate to you in any way at all
Yeah but how do you "feel" like the opposite gender?
What's a "man feeling"? What's a "woman feeling"?
Can you explain it without using gender roles or stereotypes? (Ex. Liking pink, glitter etc etc)
Because if you can't, it's not different from a person that claims to be fucking Hitler because "they feel that waY"

i'm "cis" female and I don't feel like a woman mentally or spiritually at all, yet i'm pretty comfortable calling myself female and a woman. The experiences that make me feel more "woman" all have to do with either my female body or the way society interacts with me and vice versa. External experiences. They may influence some of my mind but absolutely not all of it. My entire being and mind are neutral and not static, like I'd assume a healthy human mind should be.
Trans rhetoric is the opposite. They claim the external experiences don't make the gender but the person is
the gender. Maybe some people really do feel that way in their soul, but honestly I think that attitude is how a lot of sexism starts in the first place. Mistaking the body and external experiences for the very person, to the core.
It seems that srs and hormone therapy are the only treatments that have been developed for this mental condition when they're actually pretty shit. I have no problem with someone who wants to present as whatever gender, masculine or feminine. But I think it would be to everyone's benefit if that didn't include radically changing your biology, and trans people were instead treated to accept their body and change it in healthy ways (diet and excercise, for example) and then when they felt comfortable with themselves as people, cosmetic things like FFS could be considered, because then it's just an aesthetic thing. I just think it's stupid to treat a mental incongruity with physical surgery. Where's the logic in that?
and I also think people that haven't existed as a female presenting person through their formative years should have some respect for those who have when it comes to reproductive rights and pay gap inequality. I have no problem with you learning about femininity and assimilating. But sit the fuck down and realise you can never understand. Only sympathise.
Find me a transgirl in sport clothes or without pumps
Or in general, with neutral clothing and without make up.
It doesn't matter that "without make up they don't pass" because then you're claiming that women are real women only if they wear make up.
one of the things that always bugs me the most is, everytime a trans girl talks about when/how they realized they were trans it's always "I like playing with my mothers makeup, liked playing with dolls, didn't like playing with the other boys" etc
like ok.. growing up I liked skateboarding and dirtbikes, am I a man now?
so yea and basically everything about trans is based off of gender stereotypes
I can accept transgender women as people, and I try to use their name and female pronouns, but honestly I don't consider most transgender women real women. I have sympathy for and try to be considerate to transwomen with gender dysphoria, but I still think they're men with a mental condition rather than truly being women. I hope in the future we can get an actual treatment for mental gender dysphoria, rather than telling men to lop their dicks off.
Most of the transwomen I've met online have really blatant tells. So many of them are obsessed with trap, dickgirl, and futanari porn, lots of them are conveniently trans lesbins as well.
Honestly though, if a transwoman can pass well, in both appearance and mannerism I'll pretty much accept her as female. If I can't distinguish her from a cis woman, she might as well be a cis woman in my eyes.

Its been completely negative.
Honest to god, the only two I saw around my university were extremely clockable. Both extremely tall, one lanky with a horse face and the other like a plumber.
I remember sitting in a female restroom stall, doing my business, and I hear someone noisily enter the room, like a wild boar had just stumbled in, not exaggerating. I kinda froze because it was so jarring. It was the plumber looking tranny.
The stall next to me becomes occupied and I see their feet. Their hairy, callused, size 12 feet, complete with sausage shaped toes. They were wearing dirty shoes like pic related and later on when I walked out, I saw them wearing a knee length gypsy style skirt, with THOSE SANDALS. But while they were pissing next to me, I hear all sorts of guttural grunting and heavy breathing, I SWEAR TO GOD. They were so loud.
I see them outside shortly after, their shoes being the obvious identifier. They were standing in the crowd watching some university event. No makeup, unstyled pink hair, and thick rimmed glasses. Their presentation was a goddamned mess and they fooled NO ONE. It was a damn 50 year old man trying to dress like his interpretation of what a 20 something college woman dressed like. And of course he was loud as fuck, guffawing like the middle aged MAN he is.
I have never seen a person stand out so much in my life. He had the subtlety of a brick.
And of course, people like Riley Dennis expect lesbian and bisexual women to fuck people like that.
I feel like through the whole acceptance of transexual people there are just that big bunch of crazy people that are not actually transsexual but thriving from the attention, speshul status and confrontation/rebellion they get from it.
Then there are probably a bunch too, that are actually at loss about their identity, sexual identity included.
Like I personally feel Laverne Cox is a tremendously genuine and authentic example of a transexual woman. Personally I think I can feel how comfortable she feels in her skin being a woman and that it doesnt matter if she gets attention, ass-pats or what not from it, it's just who she is.
I have not the same perception about other transexual people.
And seeing youtube (where all the attention whores go) and the rise of "I regret transitioning" or about generally "detransitioning" I feel confirmed in my perception. I dont know what it is with these people, but I think it is really sad, because they pull the reputation of actuall transexual people down.

My opinion on the matter has changed a lot. I used to defend them almost blindly, but I guess I started changing my vision when I met a trans girl that was completely batshit insane. Like, patological liar, narc, stroic, the whole package. She would lie about touring in Paris as a musicist, steal videos and pics of prettier/more successful women and claim it was her, she insults everyone under the false pretense that "shes joking", and even tried to make a friend of mine forcefully kiss her while she kept putting her hands under his shirt when he struggled to keep them off. Awful stuff, really. But if you dared to say any shit about her, she would claim transphobia and threat to sue. The worst part is that a lot of people that are "new" to her drama actually thinks she's a super renowed phD (she claims to be so), and the first trans woman to be so (even if it was true, she would have achieved such positions as a male still, so..?) And my hate for her probably sparkled my change of heart, since I started noticing a lot of trans people were just like her.
The other trans chick I know is actually way more chill and doesn't perpetuate the gender roles as much, but she thinks she's super enlightned (she once said she learned a way to count to infinite or measure all the numbers, stuff like that, and said something like "you probably won't understand and think I am crazy though", she also claims to speak a fuck ton of languages and to play thousands instruments) and also… she said she realised she was a trans girl while watching Yuri. Yeaaah. Nothing sketchy about that. But I take this girl over the first one at any time, really.
There are also some annoying ~non-binary~ people at my uni, one of them was actually a super weeb, his actual name was like George (not real name of course) but he introduced himself with his "artistic name" (his own words), which was a weeb Japanese Name. He was actually made fun of a lot at the time, but now he claims to be non-binary and changed his weeb male name to a female one and gets pissy if you don't call him by that and says "you are not respecting his trans identity".
I remember my boyfriend asking something like "If society actually abolishes gender and gender roles, are really going to be trans folk around? Without the idea of gender? And sexuality being solely based on what body parts you find attractive?" Not quoting, but it was something amongst those lines. I could never actually answer it at the time, but yeah. Trans folk cling to an idea of gender. If gender doesn't exist, trans doesn't either.
As everyone else said, I still respect them as people and will use their preferred pronouns or whatever, but yeah. I don't buy it.
Sorry for this being super big.
I've met people trying to explain it like "You can't explain it! You just FEEL it! N-now shut up transphobe!".
tbqh I used to defend the trans issues to death. I was never a full on SJW or a intersectional feminist but I held trans issues close to my heart and firmly believed that brains can be "wired" to the wrong gender. I remember the first time I started doubting the whole idea was when I got stuck in an argument concerning the issue. Someone said that there's no medical proof of transgenderism being biology-based. I was hellbent on proving this person wrong and tried to look for sources that transgenderism was real because you could "have the opposite gender's brain" and didn't find anything. Instead I found studies debunking that.
But ultimately it was the transwomen who made me realize that it's a mental illness and not a biological condition. They were so goddamn demanding and aggressive just like the men they were born as. And I'm not alone, plenty of people realized what a scam the whole movement is after the women's march transphobia accusations.
Don't kiss some surgery-filled ass, love yourself.
yeah i think a lot of "terfs" are ex-trans supporters who got fed up. transactivists are never satisfied or grateful and just take and take with more and more invasive demands from women who just were compassionate enough to try to work with them. >>203396
I'm willing to use preferred names and pronouns too, even after "peak trans" because to me these don't explicitly imply female. Lots of kinds of people and things can be referred by names and gendered pronouns, but I'd like the word woman to remain "adult human female" so I draw the line there and of course the word female. >>203387
Very succinct way to wrap this concept up. I think a lot of us feel this way.
>>203505>I just want to see one example of a tranny who isn't a misogynistic dick in some way or another.
I try to make a distinction between internet feminists, and normal feminists. I think you should try to do the same with trannies because I've met plenty of them who didnt have a single streak of misogyny, and this comes from the pov of someone who also considers them mentally ill.
I've actually met a few of them in my life and it's only on the internet that I see shit like trying to call actual women "uterus bearers" or other sorts of nonsense. Or if someone does, they're not even trannies to begin with. Just people trying to virtue signal. >>203519>I'd like the word woman to remain "adult human female" so I draw the line there and of course the word female.
I've gotten many of those sorts of internet activists to admit they use terms like "cis" to make them feel more normal. Because let's be real here, you don't need to label what's normal.
>>203520>I try to make a distinction between internet feminists, and normal feminists. I think you should try to do the same with trannies because I've met plenty of them who didnt have a single streak of misogyny, and this comes from the pov of someone who also considers them mentally ill.
I agree, there are plenty where I still may not agree or relate to their on their views on gender, but they're nice and un-misogynistic enough to have a civil discussion with and be friends. Generalizing any group is a stupid habit, even if they really really test your patience.
I wouldn't mind the word cis if it was mostly limited to trans forums and other trans circles to be basically a technical way of saying non-trans, but fuck the people who expect women to use it for themselves all the time, like a fucking scarlet letter that implies you're a pwiviweged filthy born woman who should be grateful for her superior female social status!

Sure but that latter point is basically why it came about. You said it yourself, there's an appropriate term in the form of "non trans". But being trans is inherently abnormal, it's like saying "not not normal". So instead you try to force the normal people to define themselves, in an attempt to normalize it.
It's all very transparent, but you get in trouble if you call it out.
Yes, it actually is, however when she was invited to a conference, people were asking her for her credentials and diplomas and shit and she started crying transphobia and a lot of people believed her, boycotting the event. She really has some blind white knights for some reason. It wasn't a big enough boycott, though, the event is still running annualy AFAIK.
She also keeps changing her name to run away from these accusations. I've talked a bit about her on /int/, really, if she was american or british she would probably be a big cow on this site, because she's crazy and milky as shit.
I'm a stealth transman and I feel guilty saying this (because I'm also trans) but a majority of transwomen make me uncomfortable. Obviously I don't mean every transwoman ever because I can only speak for those I've met directly, but I'm 5/5 for bad in-person interaction and those are some troubling odds.
For me it has a lot to do with how they treat me when they believe I'm cis and how they treat cis women behind their backs. There's this overwhelming aura of petty fakeness and entitlement that explodes the second a cis woman walks out of the room. I know how catty girls can be to each other but this is completely different. There's a lot of hate and spite just because some people are born cis and these transwomen weren't. I've defended cis women only to be told "UGH but she has no idea how good she has it!" There is also a lot of blatant sexism ("do you really think SHE knows how to fix this?" well yes, she does have a degree in the field…) and brushing off whenever a cis woman has a valid complaint ("be grateful your cramps are so bad you're passing out! I'd LOVE to have periods! omg our cycles must be syncing because I'm a being such a bitch right now!"). Every transwoman I've spoken to in person has also hit on me while claiming to be a lesbian, but when I say I'm attracted to men they love to tell me about their girl cock. It's hard to treat them like women because they don't interact like women, nor do they interact with me the way I interacted with men when I presented as a woman. They interact like men who are basing their interpretation of women off of sitcoms, porn stars, or anime waifus, and they treat me how other men treat me. It gives me these uncanny valley vibes. Trying to discuss trans issues feels like a minefield because anything I say can and often will be taken offensively. I've even been scolded for not using cis or trans words to differentiate, when I thought they wanted to be thought of as regular women. The second we got a gender-neutral bathroom at work, it became all about "what else can we change to accommodate the two trans women in this massive business with 5,000 other workers who have managed to exist just fine for x# of years?" Honestly I tried to be supportive in the beginning but now I just feel wary.
Also, this next bit is unrelated to transwomen but is in regards to an earlier question about how one explains why they "feel" one gender or another. Tbh I don't (or rather my brain doesn't) feel like a man OR a woman. I just feel like me and I've always known my body is female. I've just always wanted to look like a man, grow a beard, have a deep voice, and build muscle. I'm content with the balding, the bad smells, and the body hair in strange places because I never wanted to be a living anime boy, I just want to be a more masculine version of me. There's more to it than that, of course, but at it's core I was just incredibly unhappy with having a woman's face and body. I can't really explain why I want to see a masculine man when I look in the mirror, just like I can't explain why a certain color is my favorite or why I like certain foods. It's just that way for me and going against it made me incredibly depressed. Being trans a mental illness for sure and transitioning is a serious step that doesn't help everybody but it has definitely helped me.
Thanks for typing that out. That was interesting and affirming to hear but also gave insight into an area i don't have much experience with.
also your description about what wanting to be a certain gender means to you is like the first one i've read (and it's rare that people will even explain it) that really makes sense and is understandable. i even relate to it in a way because i'm not saying this is the same thing but i also don't feel like a man or woman but i happen to not mind having a female body more often than it seriously bothers me. from what you wrote it's not too hard to imagine having the femaleness bother me more often than not and also preferring to have a man's presence. maybe that's mental illness too but the real mental illness i think is the delusion that you are that biological sex and acting entitled.
>>203573>something different or unsettling as unnatural or 'a mental disorder'
Trans is literally a mental disorder by definition, though. And labeling mental disorders are inherently negative or something to be ashamed of does people with mental health issues a disservice.
As a Crazy Person I can't help but cringe when people who claim to be inclusive and tolerant say that calling transsexualism a disorder is bad. In their own lingo, it's ableist and ~problematic
unironically these "lesbian" trans women have a fetish for being seen as women. its called autogynephilia. and apparently trans women have high rates of co morbid npd and bpd, so when they don't get catered to, they explode in narcissitic rage. they get the narcissitic supply of having power over what people say, and they get to be treated as delicate victims and given attention.
this is why talking with a trans woman who is attracted to actual women is so weird.
I cant believe the gay movement got hijacked by het males with a sissification and futanari fetish. read this, it all adds up.http://annelawrence.com/autogynephilia.html
>>203841>I wonder what changed over that decade.
All the fucking discourse and guilt-tripping about trans women being real females and lesbians.
There was always the issue of men/straights meddling with lesbian bars, but now you can't just have a big butch bouncer kick them out without getting shut down, and the straight men who showed up did know at the end of the day they're fucking men so they're not gonna score even if they jokingly try. Trans women are generally more detrimental to lesbian bars than party-crashing dudebros or fag hags who cry at gay clubs because unlike those people, they will assert until the very end that they not only fully belong there, but that they're entitled to sexual consideration from all the lesbians.

I've been saying this would happen for ages.
Antifas don't actually have a fucking clue what a nazi is to begin with. First they started thinking Trump supporter=nazi, and now the manlet jew Shapiro is apparently one too even though Trumps devout supporters kind of hate him. It's only logical they'd move onto TERFs. Regardless of if you think it's ethical to assault someone for their beliefs, these people are so disconnected from reality they cannot tell what is what.

A little ot but the other day I heard someone call these "terf bangs". Lmfao since when have they been called that? I've always associated them with sjw/tumblr types along with the "problematic glasses".
I love how sjws are so fucking ugly that their own people reject them. Dying.
Calling these people "nazis" is actually weakening the word. There are genuine neo-nazis out there today who believe in nazi views such as eugenics and that there are superior races and I've genuinely met people who think everyone in their country who isn't white should be put to death because the white race is supposedly "at risk". Weird how they won't target actual neo-nazis who genuinely do want them dead.
Nazis had some fucking sick beliefs that resulted in the deaths of millions of innocents. Someone giving their opinion isn't the same as putting anyone who isn't blonde to death ffs. That pisses me off. It's also an insult to the survivors of the Holocaust who are still alive today to compare being misgendered to being treated as subhuman.

ps for ppl that try, the only link that works is the one ending in /a/IK4rn
jesus fuck thank you so much for linking this.
i have never been so grateful to be a biological woman, gonna' appreciate my own body more now.
I'm so torn on how I feel about the legality of SRS.
On one hand, I'm very uncomfortable with dictating people's choices about their bodies. I think "they might regret it" is a terrible argument to not allow people to do something. However, I feel like SRS is on a whole other level. I see it as catering to someone's delusions and mental illness to an extent that is very harmful to them. How is this different than a doctor removing all the fat in an anorexic's body until she's the skeletal frame she desires?
I've read a few stories about trans people killing themselves as a direct product of the surgery. One transman said he had become a monster and it didn't make him feel better, only worse.
These people aren't getting functional genitals. They're getting Frankensteinesque flesh jumbles that vaguely look like them and are riddled with complications.
What I've always said, there's no surgical artistry that will give you a functional vagina, only a cicatrised axe wound between your legs.
Also, it makes me wonder and cringe and how fucking dirty it must be
Like, a vagina has self-cleaning tissue and secretions that keeps you from getting humidity infections and get rid of discharge.
For what I've seen, when they make a penis into a vagina they use the skin of the penis as a makeshift vaginal canal, skin that sweats, gets humid and smells when you don't clean it, not specialized biological made tissue.
Do they even consider that before going to the butcher's table?
yeah even going through the most traumatic experience in their life they still can't resist insulting biological females.
Their views on natural female anatomy reminds me so much of how gay men view women.
so, some get surgery down there and the realize that it's not the "real thing" and stop the penetrating, which let everything grown together or what?? I don't even dare to google that but what's the point of going through such pointless and harmful procedure if don't want to take care of it anyway??
this entire thread to this topic is just bizarre tbh: https://www.reddit.com/r/asktransgender/comments/6b5g7v/why_does_it_seem_that_a_lot_of_trans_ladies_have/

which is why i always wonder why they want to become something they have such disgust and disdain for.
but it's nice to learn that literally everyone hates women, not just cis men. Feels so great, living in this world.
What do you guys think of this article?https://medium.com/@juliaserano/debunking-trans-women-are-not-women-arguments-85fd5ab0e19c
Kinda long but I'm always fascinated to get the other sides perspective. I think they make a couple of valid points but it still seems like a "not all men" argument, of course in this case it's a "not all trans women" one

I used to be sympathetic about transwomen, before I spoke to some and started reading blog posts/articles written by them, and what you have put here is true. Quite a lot seem to be self obsessed sociopaths
>Just cause you act hella bitchy doesn't make you "more of a woman".
I actually think this idea is ironic as men in general are ar more bitchy but its just not labled as that. At college in our group there was 4 of us girls and one guy, and he was the one who started all the drama, he and his boyfriend referred to themselves as girls when he was being super bitchy, just made my fucking eyes roll.

AAAGH. I looked into this and I think it's just a troll harassing TERFS but still damn. I hate how they focus on harming little girls specifically.
apparently these were posted on a transwoman blog-tbh I dont know as I pulled them from another imageboard. However as I said used to be into bdsm and heard stuff along similar lines (which is why i promptly left)
Hey if you're up for a storytime i can deliver, just be warned brain bleach has not been invented yet>>204908
Well maybe because to them little cis boys are human beings they can relate to where as little girls are just doll pieces to be ripped apart and envied. To think I used to support these people! (to be fair not all of them are like this but too many are) look up alok-that idiot said little girls who are abused were asking for it-so many transwomen project their own twisted sexual fantasies onto little girls its disgusting.

Boo hoo. I cant imagine its anything worse than whats posted on r/incel or any PUA blog. I have seen more mra's pretending to be feminists on tumblr claiming they want all men dead. Like I said I have met some irl delusional transwomen, why is it when people come across something they feel uncomfortable with they have to write it off as fake? There is a lot of violence in this world and transpeople are not an exception. That being said I have come across two online transwomen who are reasonable and nice, but they have been ostrasized from the community and been labled terfs for their beliefs but there you go.

So people are not saying that the tranny that got shot "identified as intersex". Intersex is a very specific thing, even if you believe that gender=/=sex, it falls squarely on the biological side of things.
>Intersex people are born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies".
Honestly this is another example of how they're trying to destroy the definition of actual words. The whole gender=/=sex shit only caught on because of that horrible study by John Money, where he tried to force a boy to pretend to be a girl after a botched circumcision, despite his attempts to just live his life as a man.
>Reimer said that Money forced the twins to rehearse sexual acts involving "thrusting movements", with David playing the bottom role. Reimer said that, as a child, he had to get "down on all fours" with his brother, Brian Reimer, "up behind his butt" with "his crotch against" his "buttocks". Reimer said that Money forced David, in another sexual position, to have his "legs spread" with Brian on top. Reimer said that Money also forced the children to take their "clothes off" and engage in "genital inspections". On at "least one occasion", Reimer said that Money took a photograph of the two children doing these activities. Money's rationale for these various treatments was his belief that "childhood 'sexual rehearsal play'" was important for a "healthy adult gender identity".
Transgenderism is a mental illness and the major players behind this bullshit are mentally ill sexual deviants.
>>205111>identified as intersex
Good fucking heavens thats the first time I have heard that. Not sure how you can identify as intersex, you either are or you're arn't. As you say, its a biological reality.
I mean, I now get why people now identify as otherkin and why transgender people freak out about it-to identify with something just sounds like you choose to believe what you want about said group. Its just complete bullshit.

okay, i didn't feel like posting here at first, but i guess people were genuinely curious about this
for starters: i'm a trans man. i know that my body is female, but something about that just… doesn't sit right with me. it's very hard to explain - but imagine waking up and looking in the mirror in a body that clearly isn't yours. there's just something off about it - something in the body that doesn't belong to you. that's what "feeling like a male" means to me. it means that i feel uncomfortable in my body and that the way i wish my body was, is a male body. for me, it has nothing to do with gender roles. i mean, i probably wouldn't want to wear a big frilly dress or anything like that, but i don't feel super duper "masculine" either. for me it's about my physical sex and dysphoria associated with it.

lolol i know its called dysphoria (i have it diagnosed) but that's what being trans REALLY is. i just wanted to explain that since people here seem to think being trans is just "gender stereotype" this "man in dress" that. dysphoria is a real and actual thing and claiming to be trans without it is stupid
people who say they're trans because they "feel like a woman/man" either are genuinely dysphoric and incredibly bad at expressing themselves verbally or are just co-opting a serious condition
idk if i'd call being trans a mental disorder (that makes it seem like a bad thing and makes transness seem that it makes you inherently worse of a person) but i definitely think it should be recognized as a condition that, depending on the person, either therapy or transition is the best way to deal with.
Don't you consider depersonalization and body dysphoria a bad thing tho?
No matter how you sugar coat it, it is what it is.
It makes you feel ill and anxious on your own flesh as if it were an ugly suit you can get rid of, that's really fucking bad.
Transgenderism is an imbalance in your brain that makes you say asinine bullshit and fantasize about how happy you will be with a sausage of your own mangled vulva sewn between your legs.
Thus is a mental disorder and one that ruins you.
Please don't be a picfag.
ive had anorexia in the past and its really, really not the same>>205398
body dysphoria is a bad thing, but it can be overcome by transitioning for those who want it
what you just said has been said by other trannies 100+ times and worded in every way possible and it all bleeds down to the same ~i look at myself in the mirror and i don't feel like it belongs to me~ bullshit

Genuine question, since you're FTM. So in that post the user talks about dilation and all of the maintenance she has to do post-surgery. And forever I'm assuming (?)
For FTMs, is there anything you have to do to maintain the results? Or after you heal do you not have to bother with it anymore?

i'm mentally ill myself, i'm not saying mental illness makes you worse of a person, but calling being trans a mental illness gives it the same stigma as mental illness has.
Anon, you're on the same level of those people who think they're Napoleon or some shit like that.
Your brain is phisically sick. You don't get a free asspat pass just because you're trans uwu
You need to be cured and your cure and therapy is not a pretend game, it's accepting how you were born as.
You'll never be a man, no matter your feefees (also, please explain how you do feel like a man, without the use of stereotypes such as "I don't feel feminine" etc etc), no matter how many times you'll mutilate your body.
You were born and will die with XX chromosomes.
I hate how trans people get a pass for their mental illness. SRS and HRT is essentially the equivalent of letting a suicidal person kill themselves because it's what they want instead of helping them live happily. Trans people should have the same rehabilitation therapy to live as who they were born as, and no one under 18 or 21 should be able to get therapy of any kind at all because younger age groups have enough issues with figuring themselves out without adding sexual identity into the mix. I used to actually think being trans was legit, but when you see studies and research coming out about how bunk it is, it disgusts me it's being treated as a mental illness with no cure other than invasive mutilation. The people pushing this are sick.

They don't even try anymore.
Some criminals have transitioned to get the right of being in a female prison.
I saw some news about a dude who transitioned to avoid police. Took some months to the police realize he transitioned. And then when he was caught, he was moved to a female prison.
A lot of them want to transition so they have access to female only spaces.
Didn't take female prison into consideration. You have a point there.
I guess I didn't think of that since the prisons are quite safe where I'm from so that wouldn't provide motivation to transition here.
Invading female spaces is a big thing with them for sure. Are there even lesbian communities left without fake women?
Well the psychiatrists are not getting payed for the surgery but I'm sure hormones are a big business for them. Same thing goes for many other psychotropic drugs but that's a different topic.
Makes me sick too that they're pushing this crap on children. It boggles the mind.
/r9k/ will tell you that being a woman is easier because you can just easily find a man to take care of you and anything you need
yeah it works for SOME women but i don't think it works that way for robot tier trannies

Shit like this is why I dislike trans women and the movement
The irony? The festival allowed trans women in, its how they managed to wreck havoc.
Rather than fighting for their rights or anything positive its more like they want to constantly scream how oppressed they are and destroy what others have built because they are angry. Like it doesnt make sense, unless of course they are narcissists like some have mentioned.
I'll respect their ~pronouns~ but they will never be female, ever.
The fact that they are pushing for children to be given hormones and puberty blockers younger and younger to stop "dysphoria" just tells me that they are ugly man faced and bodied fucks who are are projecting their "what if" Fantasies onto them, because they know they'll never be a ~beautiful passable girl~
that's not feeling like a man lol
What's a man? What's a woman? How do you feel like a man or a woman? Because you can't really explain it without the stereotypes anon talked about. I get the idea of sex dysphoria but what if there were no man? What would you feel then? Do you even know how men feel with their genitals? Do a man know how a woman feels about their genitals? As a woman, what does it feels to have something hanging there? Or do you want to be seen as a man to be treated as one?
In the end gender is bullshit, it's just the way to say "Men should behave like this" and "Women should behave like that".
cause it's fucking sick. genital altering is disgusting on it's own, but it's so much worse it's done to alter one sex's genitals to seem like the other's.
the way people treat sexual organs is disgusting to me. circumcise, douche, shave, don't smell bad, foreskins are gross, long labia are slutty. it's fucked up.
and yet these mental special snowflakes get pat on the head for their gross puss filled holes and oversized clits. fuck off.
To piggyback onto this, I'm a guy who enjoys video games, baseball, football, beer, and engineering.
I also love female fashion. I'm gay and not at all into cross dressing, so it's not a sexual thing. Having a few interests that fit the opposite gender is normal. You don't need to chop off your dick and scream it to the world to bake cookies. Trans is a mental illness that goes much deeper than not liking your gender.

Another misogynistic youtuber is "full-time transing" now, whatever that means. First he was a crossdresser, after that "genderqueer" or something, and now he's taking hormones and 100% sure he's trans because of it. He rants about "TERFs" a lot and thinks a vagina is a hole for sex: https://youtu.be/-SeCD8tJUhU?t=19m23s
Even if you did wear women's clothing, it just wouldn't matter. There are so many heterosexual guys who just enjoy to put on a dress now and then maybe grow out their hair too. This needs to be an ok thing to do. Sure, it would make you a fetishist or a feminine guy but it doesn't make you a woman.
Feminine men and masculine women need to be an ok thing and a concept people can live with.

While accurate, I'm pretty sure most trannies are oblivious to this fact and think they'll all become pretty girls.

"Female" fashion is one million times more interesting and beautiful than "male" fashion is. Most of the time it is a kink thing, but there's nothing inherently creepy about a guy wanting to wear a nice dress or something.
most standard women's clothing looks bad on men cause it's not meant for broad bodytypes. i think it -could- work if they made feminine clothing for men.
but man, come on, rigid gender roles have existed for thousands of years, we're not going to suddenly dispel them.

What about frilly French court fashion from the 1600s? Way more interesting, colourful, beautiful etc. than what we have now. I was reading an article the other day, about how men's fashion essentially became muted and boring during the Regency era, and hasn't recovered since.
I have no issue with that, just as I'd have no issue with someone making skirts for men. Honestly, though, it seems even more difficult for men to break their gender roles than women, since so few of them care, and the people who care are MRA idiots who aren't fighting for the right things. Women can wear pant and suits and ties and whatever the fuck, but men can't wear skirts without getting insulted by other men (and dumb women), and that's a problem. A lot of men's issues, (male femininity not being acceptable, male rape not being addressed, child circumcision being legal, spousal abuse against males) are all mostly dismissed by other men. All of those things and many others, can be addressed in a way that contributes to feminism. And a lot of this stuff probably contributes to the fetishization of being female.
>>206465>What about frilly French court fashion from the 1600s?
Maybe it's because of the circles I run in but I get the sense that colorful and flamboyant clothing is losing some of its stigma because of people like the Landsknecht. Hard to attack the masculinity of a guy that ran around with a giant sword and fucked shit up.>>206470>Women can wear pant and suits and ties and whatever the fuck, but men can't wear skirts without getting insulted by other men
Probably in part because pants are generally perceived as more gender neutral. Good luck doing hard labor in a dress, but I don't really see any advantages to a dress aside from liking how it looks.
>All of those things and many others, can be addressed in a way that contributes to feminism.
Doesnt help the message is all over the place. Some women say feminism seeks to help remedy male problems, others say it's only for female problems and men need to fuck off. The average person just doesn't want to deal with that shit.
>>206481>I don't really see any advantages to a dress aside from liking how it looks.
I personally see no downside other than "someone might see your underwear".
I don't really get why men would prefer pants over skirts, unlike women they have a dick in there. Shouldn't a skirt be more comfortable, since it doesn't smother or constrict the D?
I bet some men have small dicks because of too tight underwear and pants unf
I love this thread, you guys are saying exactly what I've always thought about the tumblr approach to gender.
I have some stereotypically feminine traits, and some stereotypically masculine ones, I don't "feel" a special connection to my gender, but I am 100% a woman because I was born with a vagina and 2x chromosomes. That's all fucking being a woman is, the rest is up to you.
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills whenever trans people come up.
I'm a lefty, yet I'm afraid to speak my mind on the internet, for fear I'll be screamed down for being an ignorant bigot because I don't think liking dresses makes you a woman.
It feels like we're going fucking backwards in regards to gender.
I was a feminist until trans women came along and started talking over women, saying really shitty things about 'natal women' (the fact that you even have to type that in some places makes me rage) like they deserve to be called she and her because they want it more than we do, or that our pussies stink (hunty, yours is an open wound that gets hairballs and ball sweat smegma, believe that you're doing some massive projection) or that women are literally murdering trannies by calling them trannies. Last time I checked, men who go to prostitrannies are doing the murdering. Women on the whole don't commit violent crime, but lumping chicks with dicks in with real women is skewing crime data and also putting women in prison at risk for rape and murdery by these autogynephiles.
There's this tranny cow that I follow, Chris Scaife, he goes by Angelica Perduta and he's absolutely psycho, like a MGTOW who also decided he was a girl, I can't even understand that level of crazy.
What sucks is I feel like I can only voice thoughts like this here, or gendertrender, but I hate trannies. They still talk over women, and they still behave like degenerate asshole men.
Um, samefagging because I forgot my point: I stopped being a feminist because this wave of feminism seems to support and value tranny voices more than their own, and we've allowed them to take over women's spaces, which I don't understand. I'm not calling my vagina a 'front hole' because it makes the trannies sad.
If trans women really cared about women, they would recognize that they are not women and they have no right to speak in place of women, or to demand that women change language to suit their feelings.
The "real" cases are
Not at all, really. Sexual preference and dissociating from your biological sex on the basis of sexist stereotypes are two drastically different things. One is on the same level as kinning or getting an arm cut off because you were convinced it wasn't supposed to be there and the other is on the same level as preferring cats over dogs (more or less).
Being gay is also harmless, while trans shit obviously isn't.
lmao this being trans = same as being gay meme.
you don't need to surgically change yourself, or need others to perceive you as something else you are not to be gay. you just exist as you are.
being trans is all about changing yourself and others having to see you certain way so that you exist.
Has anyone seen this "controversy"?
The TLDR is some kid who can't even lift 70 lb and is constrained to a motorized wheelchair renamed his student ID to some reference to the movie Cars, and now people are whining about how this ~cis male~ is abusing a tool that trans people use or some bullshit.
How delusional do you have to be to think a wheelbound cripple is more privileged than you?
Wow, let's harass a disabled person because he used a service open to everyone causing no harm to anybody.
They really are the worst bullies.
Most serious trans men (aka not Tumblr fakebois) try not to impose themselves much and regardless of whether or not they're nice people personally, they aren't in your face about their transness. Almost as if being raised as a female had an impact on their behavior…

I wasted my entire adolescence and the start of my young adult life suffering from it, but I kind of gave up on it once I realized that the only cure around wouldn't have solved my issues.
It fucked me up permanently in various ways that make having a relationship impossible now, but at least I won't end up in /r/transpassing and in online picture compilations.
Hope it's fine to bump with this. I'm just confused as to how I even feel towards this. I'm desperate for a place to discuss it without it being either a hugbox or the polar opposite.
I live in a backwards country where that level of progressive tomfoolery doesn't exist, fortunately.
The therapist I went to was very professional and proposed I get on antidepressants instead, to check if that was the underlying cause. They worked, but they only made the situation better without addressing the main issue I think.
The problem with curing myself, like I'm sure is the issue for curing any transexual, is that your entire personality is built around it. By which I don't mean that you go to trans pride events and you have a tumblr, what I mean is that you are the 'kind' of person to fall into the illness.
So even if my dysphoria vanished, I'd still be left with emotional needs that I'm not the right gender nor sex to receive, or invoke in a partner or either sex.
But as things are now I'm constantly forced to give up on relationships before or as soon as they start, because the thought of myself in any kind of intimacy (a hug, a kiss, etc) revolts me.
It’s interesting to hear your experience/perspective anon. I’m sorry you’re going through this, I can only imagine how hard it must be.
I had always thought that transgenderism must be some form of trauma response to not being suitably able to receive certain social treatment, ie men who want to wear pretty dresses and bat eyelashes (for a horribly cliche example) and have everyone treat them like cute girly girls. What you’ve said appears to fit that assessment; although I’d be interested to hear what you mean by >emotional needs I’m not the right gender or sex to receive
& then stating that >thought of myself in any kind of intimacy revolts me
Surely that’s a sexual need, not an emotional one?
Cool if you don’t want to go into it though. I just genuinely would like to understand from the POV of someone actually dealing with these feelings.
>>214283>Surely that’s a sexual need, not an emotional one?
Like I've specified right after, I'm talking about stuff like even a hug, a kiss, holding hands, etc.
Of course sex would be traumatic too, but that's an entirely different can of worms, and not what I was referring to.
Just being in public makes me feel repulsive, being touched just amplifies that.
>ie men who want to wear pretty dresses and bat eyelashes
Even with a magical instant sex change I would probably be wearing stuff that's considered tomboyish to be honest, sweet lolita and overtly cute things aren't my thing. Cutest I would go is Mori as far as dresses are concerned.
But I do still have some needs (wants?) that I guess fall into the umbrella of stereotypical gender roles.
Stuff like wanting to be the protected half of the relationship, or being 'showed off' by a proud partner. Which I realize isn't exclusively female, but it feels wrong for some reason, like even if it happened it shouldn't be.
Not that it matters since even if someone saw me that way I wouldn't be able to stand the relationship, just by virtue of me being a part of it.
It's mostly a physical thing, but I've grown with time to find myself repulsive on an emotional level too.
I broke at some point, and apparently developed psychopathy on top of the manic depression. Losing 90% of my ability to feel things made the pain much more bearable, and even with meds it never returned to quite the same level, which convinced me I didn't 'deserve' to be with anyone and force them to be with someone who wouldn't be able to love them back.
My armchair diagnosis of myself is that I was just an ordinary lonely person, but coincidence and other underlying problems mixed like bleach and ammonia to create this.
In an amusing twist of fate I have more friends than I've ever had, but I feel more alone than I've ever been.
That's fair enough. I assumed you meant in a non-platonic manner (like not from a family member or friend); so I suppose it's romantic, the bridge between emotional and sexual needs? Thank you for the further explanation, I understand better now.
That's also fair enough. I chose an "extreme" example to demonstrate the scenario I was imagining. >wanting to be the protected half of the relationship, or being 'showed off'>isn't exclusively female, but it feels wrong for some reason
This is the core of what I thought of transgenderism before I read your comment… the idea that these desires are inherently gendered is creating such a mental disconnect that it causes identity trauma, which in turn necessitates a protective response/coping mechanism. (Please don't be offended or upset by any of this, that's not my intention, it's just pseudo-academic musing.)
I'm sorry this has happened to you anon. But I agree with >>214291
- please go back to therapy. You are capable of loving yourself, and loving someone else, and you definitely deserve that. There isn't a right or wrong way to be in this world (unless it directly harms someone else like animal abuse or something). I also have manic depression, so I feel your pain on that one. It's a long hard slog getting off the pills, facing the cause, and truly working it out with yourself, but totally worth it. Thank you for talking honestly with me, and good luck anon.

I tried being trans friendly. I really tried. Then I browsed 4chan's /lgbt/ board for a couple months where it was just a nightmare of autistic trans "lesbians" harassing actual lesbians and overall being fetishistic, invasive and creepy.
Here is a thread that's currently up, and the replies made my stomach turn:http://boards.4chan.org/lgbt/thread/9233169
Pic related is a post from the thread that basically sums up my thoughts, aside from the obvious pro-life b.s.
the importance that humans place on their insignificant little lives, especially of those who haven't even been born, and will need care for 18 years is ridiculous.
sage because this is ot and the thread is gonna probably get baleeted like the terf thread on /g/.
I’m completely pro-choice, but it’s not abortion if a baby is full-term, it’s murder. If someone kills a pregnant woman and their child was viable they are also tried for the death of the child. If the mother was “uncomfortable” or “not mentally capable” of giving birth, she had plenty of time prior to resolve that.
/sage for derail
Just because it's the law doesn't mean it should be. A court gave a child a life sentence in prison because she murdered the pedophile that was holding her as a sex slave. I suppose that was justified? Because it's the law?
And what about overweight women who don't know they're pregnant until month 8-9? Have you ever seen that show "I didn't know I was pregnant"?
File: 1512596427668.png (193.28 KB, 1850x487, pregnant fetishist.PNG)
Their fetishization of pregnant womens' bodies and just about any female bodily function is disgusting. Stay far away from that place if you can, it's cringier than Tumblr.
>>214834>a child>actually 16, the legal age of sexual consent
Plenty of 16 year olds have been tried as adults for severe enough crimes. Murder is pretty severe. Stop being over-dramatic, it completely ruined the (already thin) point you were trying to make.
Do I think a mother should have the right to remove a human being from her body at a point where the child would almost undoubtedly live, but would likely end up with lifelong medical issues? No, I don’t, and any woman who thinks that’s a reasonable thing to do because “not prepared” is a horrible cunt. You prepare yourself for potential children when you have sex, there’s no foolproof way to avoid it 100% of the time.
Sage because moralfag, but fr
Samefag, I answered you but clicked on the wrong # - see above.
Also if you’re so fat you don’t know you’re 9 months pregnant… sort your life out jfc.
Wtf, then do we force women to carry children they dont want??
Like fucking cattle, thats immoral..
>>inb4 just never have sex ever!! unless you we're raped then you can "kill" the baby hurrdurr
That screencap sums me up at this point. I'm beginning to really side with TERFS and shit and I feel super fucking bad for lesbians having to deal with all this stuff.
And like…I like men for the most part, and yeah I've deal with some sexist assholes once or twice, but god, trans'women' really do take the cake misogyny wise. Like, I saw a FB for translesbians that basically kept calling 'cis' woman axe wounds and breeders and a buncha other really foul shit. They then try to CHANGE how women's health is operated by doctors and force us to accept them into our bathrooms and then act utterly fucking surprised women despise them.
I don't want to hate anyone, but god I'm getting there.
>>214888>kept calling 'cis' woman axe wounds and breeders
Which is fucking hilarious because aren't transbians technically straight men aka 'breeders'? Lmao. And to think that a large portion of them have been married to women for 20+ years with several kids of their own.
I noticed that outside of Tumblr and libfem circles, a lot of troons seem to strongly dislike transbians too. It's probably only because they think being associated with autogynephiles gives them a 'bad name' or something, but if their own kind hates them too, that's clear evidence that they're terrible.
What the fuck? How is it forcing a woman to carry a child she doesn’t want at 9 months pregnant? She’s done the fucking carrying, but she wants to abort at the last minute - which FYI means she’d have to give birth anyway, how else do you think it would leave her body - so it’s murdering an unborn child, not aborting some half-formed thing. Can none of you distinguish between foetus and baby, or are you just not reading the original comments before you answer?
I’m pro-choice you retard. Doesn’t mean I’m “pro killing/disabling an actual fully-formed child because some moms are too fat to realise they’re 9 months pregnant and then throw a shit fit about muh rights”
Ah, so you just weren't reading the original comments then. I didn't mention 9 months, >>214825
did - the anon I was replying to. Maybe try reading the whole conversation before you get butthurt over nothing.
1) I wasn't the anon who started this OT.
2) I also wasn't any of the anons who have tried to argue with me about the 1 comment I made in response to the OP anon.
3) You're the one who looks foolish because you also appear to have not read the comment thread, just like the previous anons who have argued with me. I'm aware of why they perform late term abortions, it's clearly not what I'm talking about… if you bothered to read before replying.
Sage for having to explain a simple concept for the 3rd time because anons are apparently fucking thick

Imagine sharing a locker room shower with this person lol
Caption from HER Instagram:
>I had a fitting with a designer for an upcoming photoshoot. After schlepping myself halfway across town to the fitting, I show up and the stylist helping me says "okay so what size are you?" I told him that I was anywhere between an 8 and a 12, depending on the designer. "Oh, we don't have much of that, but let's see what we can do." After fifteen minutes of digging, he hands me two dresses "This one's an 8, but it's stretchy so it might fit? And this other dress is a 10–it's the only one I could find." I contorted, sucked in, tensed my stomach, and pushed all of the air out of my lungs, but the first dress wouldn't zip. Which left the second dress, a boring, dull, black cocktail dress lacking in both personality and structure. "Sorry we couldn't find anything else for you," he said half-heartedly, dismissively, while checking his email, "we don't regularly have anything bigger than an 8 in our showroom" For a second, I started spiraling into a vortex of self-hatred and shame about my body. I almost started to feel ugly. After a minute and a few deep breaths, I stopped myself. There is nothing wrong with my body. I have a great body. I have a gorgeous body. But my body is also one that the fashion industry refuses to recognize as worthy of consideration or beautification. Because I am feminine and large, because I am feminine and have big feet, the fashion industry dismisses me out of the gate. But here's what you should know: If I can't find a dress at your showroom, it's not because there's something wrong with my body, it's because there's something wrong with your brand, with who your brand values as beautiful. On a day that tried to shake my self confidence and self esteem, I'm posting a self-portrait in my underwear to reaffirm just how cute I know I am

What an amazing sexy womyn I guarantee she's more of a woman than those nasty cis terfs will ever be
Stay jelly cissies~
Responsing to an old post but my gf is trans (MtF) and she's pretty chill,looks like your local lesbian in flannel shirts and sometimes sports clothes.
I still secretly think it's a mental illness but she's perfectly sane,knows she wont ever be a biological woman, and that most MTFs are retarded so…idk. Maybe transition can sometimes be the "cure"??
She passes perfectly on every point too since she started in her teenage years.
Also she thinks TERFs are right. Transpeople deserve respect,obviously,but they have nothing to do with feminism.
Goddamn I love her.
Going on the topic of it being a "cure", for me personally, being on hormones has done a lot to stabilize my mental and emotional state.
Actually tried stopping HRT for a year, with the idea that I should just learn to accept myself, and it didn't work so I went back. Happier overall.
Transitioning did have the added effect of me being more comfortable with my body. I never hated it before, I just never really recognized it as mine. Now I feel much more comfortable with who I am.>>215106
It's too darn tiring. I think I only really get riled up about trans issues when it comes in to the news cycle, and even then I burn out pretty quick.
In my experience the best results I've had contributing to the "movement" have been just -going about life, being as normal and sane person as I can be, while being an open resource for people. When people often feel like all trans people are crazy dudes trying to get into bathrooms, hopefully showing that isn't the case is enough.
To answer the OP as a trans woman,
I do think a lot of trans women try too hard to be "authentic". A lot of people seem to get fixated on "passing", about controlling how others see them, and wanting things that they should accept they can't have (e.g. uterus). And it can be incredibly problematic
A lot of people I see who start transitioning reduce being a woman to a series of checkboxes. (There's also the opposite, where people feel like it can be whatever they dictate)
I'll always remember when I first was open about my transition I freaked out because I had some facial hair growing and my friend chastised me "stop complaining. Katie over there has more hair than you on her lip" and that helped me realize I was focusing on dumb shit.
Hopefully more people grow out of it. I try not to get too involved though because the only thing more tiring than arguing with someone insisting I'm going to the bathroom to molest their daughters is arguing with someone who says the lesbian who said they don't like dick is a misogynist.
I second this. Although both suffer from similar types of discrimination, women and trans women (as in real trans women and not gynofetishists in drag) face different experiences that just doesn’t correlate. For that reason I think feminism works only for XX chromosomed humans. Still, as what it’d be considered a TERF, I think trans women deserve respect and rights.
I disagree with >>215124
though, MTF is different than being male, so I don’t think trans women’s issues have something to do with masculism. Is true that because of their main biology some people might consider them “male”, but they face different experiences that men won’t understand nor identify with.
I’d prefer to label them in a new category. I know many trans women won’t be ok with that, because the struggle to be acknowledged as a real woman is tiring.
Now if we pointed the real problem, we’d be talking about gender issues, male violence and machism.
