Oh yeah yeah, yeah! And you were born with lipstick and nail polish. Pardon me while I go take my mincing lessions! You must have been seriously Intersexed to believe that. I have never heard one TS author make a preposteropus statement like that. So disagree with me, Who's closer? It sounds like you are a wannabee who thinks that her choice of friends and contacts will determine
the outcome. Good Luck!

as a matter of fact , yes i am intersexed but that has no impact on the crossdresser way of life and why they cross dress. spend as many years actually interviewing crossdressers as i have and you will see ,from their own admission why they do what they do.

In most cases, crossdressers do not dress up for sexual reasons, but because they like to feel and act feminine... many do however have sexual fantasies that contains crossdressing, but the sexual aspect is not the cause for them to dress.

crossdressers most often don't wish to change their sex, as many only dress part time.

Transgendered people are persons whose persona (gender) belongs to the opposite side of the sex they were assigned at birth, therefore wishing to change into the sex they feel like on the inside.

one must understand that there is a difference between gender, sex, and sexual orientation.

I really don't know or care. What we need and get from all this is relief of symptoms. What I call "Gender Hell". When I drank, Gender hell took me to some places I never wanted to be. Later, when I wasn't drinking, gender hell made me do some really crazy things. Things I never wanted to do and couldn't explain. Like throwing a hammer across the shop. Then there were the dreams. I don't mean day dreams, I mean sometimes I would have dreams about which skirt I wore to work the day before and it all seemed perfectly normal at the time. Then I would wake up and feel the anguish because I was confronted with the agony of knowing I did not present as a woman the day before or any other day. Life wasn't much fun. I was seriously going crazy because of this. I had my family and I was trapped. I searched for distractons to try to keep my mind off of it They worked till the distraction got old and then it was back on the merry go round again.

Here are the definitions used by one of the more popular TG support sites (over 8,000 members!). I find them to be generally accurate although these definitions are not accepted by all in the community.

If "gender roles" are socially constructed then why is it important for someone's mental sex to match their physical sex?

Why not just decide to reject social norms that a certain physical sex goes with a certain mental sex and live and act just like what ever gender you feel like but not get surgery?

Because social mores and norms are important to people, first of all, since they determine your level of acceptance in society and because the physical dysphoria remains for many transsexual people even after their social transition has been completed.

Rejecting social norms demands costs that many people are not willing or able to pay. Physical dysphoria is only assuaged by physical corrections. Psychosocial distinctions make little difference.

<quoted text>For the sake of clarity,there must be a definitive term to distinguish the true M2F or F2M which are not conditions of CHOICE;from all other sexual behavior which may indeed be choice.To me the only term which is suitable is "Transgender."If anyone has a better term;I am listening?
The one that is in use now is Transsexual. Works for me

What is the point of this discussion, both carrying element of femininity inside , and change the actions of a person, by an increase of that element and its association with emotion, I'm cross dress now means that I will be definitely trans tomorrow by reaching the highest level of feminism sole

Donna SwtTgrl,

I can imagine how much you want to believe these things; and how easy it is to do so since we all just want to feel ok about who we have come to be. However, you offer very little (really, zero) proof that your opinions are backed by current scientific consensus. I can tell that you've done some narrow reading on this subject; and that you've come to some highly biased conclusions on the matter. However, those of us, who, while similarly afflicted, have kept and open mind on this very serious issue (and have read all of the same research as you); couldn't help but notice that the science you espouse has long since been disproven. Specifically, most, if not all, of the studies that you lean on in your vague attempt to justify your cross-gender feelings (which do not, nor should never require justification) have never been repeated by any other teams of researchers, nor have they acquired sufficient support amongst other researchers to shift their relative paradigms in any way I guess, you'll just have to be brave and call yourself a tranny without the pompous and unnecessary backing of science... Like the rest of us.
