“I feel like my personality just fits too. I have always been super emotional and dramatic about silly things.”

Being transgender is supposedly about having a “gender identity” that does not fit with your biological sex. This gender identity is sometimes described as “a person’s private sense and subjective experience of their own gender”. In practice, the reasons many trans people give for feeling like a woman/man are thoroughly sexist and based on nothing but stereotypes.

This poster is questioning his identity:

“I feel like my personality just fits too. I have always been super emotional and dramatic about silly things.” Ah, of course, Females are super emotional and dramatic about silly things. How progressive. Does anyone call him out on how sexist this is? Does anyone suggest his masturbatory fantasies about being female might be just that, a fantasy to get off to? No, of course not.

“I won’t tell you that you’re trans, but yup, you are totally trans”.

“Make an appointment to get hormones now now now” (an “informed consent clinic” is a clinic that will prescribe hormones without requiring you to get psychological treatment).

So there we have it. Feeling like a woman = being emotional and dramatic.

  1. actually i agree with everything you said in this one. It’s sexist gunk based on a fantasy of being what he thinks is a woman. It doesn’t describe all people that are looking into sex changes, but I think you describe a good many of them this way. It’s important to get a good therapist and to be brutally honest for your reasons to get a sex change. And it also exposes the cheerleader syndrome. Not productive to finding out what is really driving the desires. And when they begin therapy the options of “NO SEX CHANGE” should be on the table. If not, then why go.
