i’m learning why we say transgendered. in my day a guy might be trans and we would ask post or pre op? these days a man like myself, 6’2, 240, hairy, 33w, 48c could literally call my self a trans woman and expect to be treated as a female.
in my view there are certain traits and physical characteristics that define you as a male female. male having a penis and testes and female having a vagina and ovaries. these days we have chaz bono running around calling himself a hetero man because he identifies as a man, has removed his breasts and has a vagina. i get it call yourself a man but you are not male. not by definition of the term.
so this model is a transgendered woman, is she pre op or post op? that could be the difference whether this is a homosexual encounter or a heterosexual encounter.
Casper not so smart. He hit the good digger jackpot but, oh well.
OUT this homo!
@gskorich: No, just no. First, Gender does not equal genitalia. Gender is a complex social construct used to define societal roles and police individuals actions. Second, it isn’t “transgendered” it is transgender. Transgender isn’t a verb done to you but an adjective. Third, not all trans* people identify as either male or female. They may have some or all of the “physical traits” associated with one particular gender but identify with neither. It is time we stop telling people what gender they are based on the sex they were assigned at the hospital once born. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter what genitalia she has, don’t ask it is rude. As Laverne Cox once said, “I do feel there is a preoccupation with that. The preoccupation with transition and surgery objectifies trans people.”
@kpwhite i wake up tomorrow and have this overwhelming need to call myself a woman. i decide to keep the beard and the hairy chest, i also decide to keep the penis. now, in my mind i am a woman. how does the rest of society know i have made this choice? why should the react when i choose the woman bathroom? shouldn’t they accept me without asking me about my genitailia? btw, i’m only trying to understand all of this,
@gskorich:My question to @kpwhite: Is if gender is a socially constructed product to enforce rules and we get our sex assigned to us, what is it that makes a transgender is? Genders according to you are social constructs, sex is assigned at birth. What specific thing is it that makes a transgender go I am a woman or a man and my assigned sex is wrong? What is this perception of there are no genders but yet I identify as the other? If a transgender person feels their body should have breasts and a vagina obviously they are wanting to be female but yet that doesn’t actually mean anything since well a transgender ftm can say my vagina doesn’t make me a woman? So if it’s not physical and not society then what?
Why are we caring so much about a personal issue between a couple? Seriously, this is a private matter. Salacious as it may be…private.
Queerty, we can not post the word C*CK
Oh well, Seems like Casper was seeking a “Jenny with a c*ck” :p
