Autogynephilia

I'm not gonna go into a super long rant this time. I was over the moon impressed by the comments on Fetlife in the Ask a Transgender Person a Question. I recommend signing up if you haven't already, and I recommend joining the group and reading up on one of the most misleading and damaging theories transgendered people face.

I'll leave the explanation of Autogynephilia to the following abstract from the below linked journal.

Autogynephilia is a paraphilic model that states that all male-to-female (MtF) transsexuals who are not exclusively attracted toward men are instead sexually oriented toward the thought or image of themselves as a woman. The assertion that transsexual women are sexually motivated in their transitions challenges the standard model of transsexualism—that is, that transsexuals have a gender identity that is distinct from their sexual orientation and incongruent with their physical sex. This article provides a review of the evidence against autogynephilia and makes the case that the taxonomy and terminology associated with this theory are both misleading and unnecessarily stigmatizing.

I don't like Autogynephilia and I do not like cis and hetero normative men telling me what I am and what I am not unless it involves me being a slut or me being a good girl. I don't like being told what makes me me.

When I went to CAM-H for the gender identity clinic, which is a farce, I was told I am a gender dysphoric, histrionic, nympomaniac who should think harder about my life. I have thought harder, and I'm working harder still to make things come true for me.

I know I've been a bit preachy lately and so I'll return to our regularly scheduled slut-isms. Expect more opinions from this diva, because I'm living with nonsense mindsets like Autogynephilia every day and it is as dangerous and poorly designed as blatant Bible thumping.

I'm looking for a makeup artist to work on the upcoming photoshoot. It will involve nudity and lesbian D/s themes. It won't include men because that would certainly turn into a porn shoot and that isn't the goal of this photoshoot. Gangbangs be later yo! Now a pic.

    Good Lord---the autogyno mob is still about? I thought we had run those idiots to ground a few years ago when J. Michael Bailey stepped down under fire as chair of the Northwestern University psych department. I'm floored at the apparent continuing desire of non-transpeople to tell transpeople what we're thinking and feeling. This is facially as silly as me, a caucasian transwoman, telling a cisgender Latina what "Latina women are like" would be. *facepalm*
