it is driving me crazy…i am on a train traveling from visiting my trans-sister who happens to be paralyzed after many strokes after years of taking female estrogen….i cannot see the bruce jenner talk with diane sawyer….i understand he is coming out…..he dressed in women’s clothing from childhood and now says that means he has a female brain!!! o! autogynephilia!
can any transsexual explain to me, a naturally born woman, what does it feel like to have a female brain….of course i have a female brain because i am female….but i think what he means is that he wants to feel how a female is supposed to feel in our society…vulnerable, soft, loving, motherly, dreaming of high heels with red soles, and all that other hogwash….women don’t feel that way…not if we are truly honest with ourselves.
i have had to dissect what it means to be a woman since i was 13 years old in 1968 , when my brother announced his intention to seek out surgery…quite a pioneering kid he was…he got the surgery and less than ten years later, he ended up as a vegetable in hospital, unable to move…the doctors were baffled. i am not…he was taking female hormones for more than 12 years, and suffered a series of stokes and embolisms….
what did it prove to my womanhood? that female hormones administered to a male body was just plain suicidal or homicidal (excuse the pun). it also told me that buying a woman’s physique was possible and fairly easy….that a man can do whatever a woman can do…except….bleed on a monthly basis and have children vaginally. oh yeah, there is one thing a boy never has to experience, and that is learning from an early age that their bodies are in danger of sexual transgression from men. that is why transsexual men like to dress provocatively and wear tons of makeup….
they do not understand this curse of learning girlhood or womanhood….it is not what we wear that makes us women….it is how we are hunted by men!! why can men not realize this fundamental….being a woman does not “feel” like something….there is no essence of being of a woman…it is learned from birth by the way we are treated in society….every culture of humans have different features of being a woman or a man….they are not the same across time or culture….i hate the lies being pushed onto the public by the media….where are the sensible minds who do not acquiesce to the conservative agenda to put women back into the pink ghetto?
