As I pointed out in my Anti-Heartiste FAQ, evidence suggests that the entire sexual partner gap between men and women is explicable by women being goddamned liars. Third, I must clarify what I meant in that particular comment.
The question is not whether trans people may crossdream experience cross-gender arousal. Given that women lie massively about sex, it is possible that families are more likely to sanitize female autoerotic asphyxiators.
They are either extremely effeminate homosexual men who transition in order to attract straight men, or they are straight men who suffer from a "paraphilia" sexual perversion that makes them lust for their inner woman.
Unfortunately, he is missing the very large confounding variable, which is that women are fucking liars about sex. I call this crossdreaming. A woman who has had sexual reassignment surgery does not even have testicles to produce testosterone.
And the only way Blanchard can dismiss the existence of "aotugynephiliacs" who do not crossdream, is by dismissing all of them as liars.
The reason they may appear as more masculine than their man-loving sisters, is because they have been socialized as men for a longer time and because testosterone has had more time to masculinize their bodies.
Young trans women, like women in general, normally look more feminine than older women. Why would they even want sexual reassignment surgery if they are fine with having a penis? Being monogamous was a similar constant drain on me, and being polyamorous— several years after I started— is still a major contributor to my happiness, which is the reason I say it would be extremely hard to go back to monogamy.
First, I find it highly amusing that Spandrell believes I am the first trans person assigned female at birth to be attracted to men. They invariably have a history of sexual arousal with crossdressing or cross-gender fantasy.
However, I have been constantly distressed by my breasts since puberty; when I thought I was cis, I would have constant fantasies of cutting them off with a knife; when I stop binding regularly, I notice a deep loss of psychological stability.
This probably extends to sexual fetishes. Now that we see more openness and tolerance regarding trans issues, bisexual and woman-loving trans women tend to transition much earlier. Finally, I must address the notion that I am an autoandrophile. It is much harder for them to believe they can find love as a woman.
One guy who is turned on by the idea of knitting does not mean that every trans woman who is attracted to other women is an autogynephile. Blanchard has given her interpretation of the theory strong support. However, women are less likely than men to masturbate, and even when they do they masturbate less often than men dodecreasing the risk of women dying through masturbation.
However, transgender women scored significantly higher on the Core Autogynephilia Scale. I value my relationship highly, but not that highly. Finally, let us discuss trans women. Because of this even the idea of being transformed into a woman can become arousing.
Even Blanchard's own research shows that there are "homosexual transsexuals" that is trans women who are attracted to men who experience "autogynephilic" fantasies. Transvestic fantasy of wearing women's clothing Behavioural fantasy of engaging in typical feminine behaviour, let's say knitting together with women Physiologic fantasy of pregnancy, breast feeding, menstruating Anatomic fantasy of having a woman's body, including p artial autogynephiliawhere the focus is on a mix of male and female bodyparts, as in -- for instance -- becoming a "she-male".
I admit that none of these are particularly solid arguments. Spandrell provides as examples: This should not come a surprise. It is true that women are less likely to die by autoerotic asphyxiation.
Now imagine that you have a penis and you have sexual fantasies in which you have a vagina. For instance, paranormal erotic romance is basically just a fetish for fucking vampires and werewolves.
