In previous posts in this blog we have seen how gender stereotypes play a big role in the narrative of many transitioners. Liking stereotypically feminine things or wanting long hair is seen as significant markers of internal “gender” rather than aspects of personality. There are other types of narratives that lead to someone deciding they are trans. One we will call the sexual narrative, the other one we will call the jealousy narrative. The sexual narrative will be described in more detail in later posts.
Being jealous of women and girls is something that comes up often in the narratives of transitioners. Sometimes the jealousy focuses on physical aspects of being female, such as breasts, genitals or being “allowed” to act and dress in specific ways.
Another poster assures OP that it’s common to feel this way!
Another jealous poster. (note the abundance of stereotypes in this post)
Another poster asks, “does the jealousy ever go away“?
There is a lot of anger directed at women:
Another common cause of jealousy is that women are perceived to have it “better” or “easier”. This attitude, which is prevalent among people who call themselves “men’s rights activists”, is also not uncommon among transgender people online.
Male privilege is nothing, when you’re a girl people open doors for you!
Males are the ones who are oppressed, females have tons of advantages!
There are many people spending a lot of time in online trans communities who do not have an emotionally healthy or mature perspective on what it means to be female. Regardless of whether one agrees with a lot of the transgender politics, most people would agree that someone who is unable to leave the house because seeing women makes them too angry are not in a healthy place, whether they decide to transition or not.
