This is a good glimpse inside the mind of one transsexual.
This member's comments are fairly typical for a self-identified
transsexual. This is good reading for a male admirer who hopes to
develop a meaningful relationship with a pre-op or post-op
Every transgender girl is
different, so I can only talk about my experiences. Being that I am highly
active in the largest inter-mountain transgendered group in Utah, and write a
monthly article entitled "Pride!" for the newsletter we publish, and also the
fact that I am currently a pre-op TS, I think I have some valuable knowledge on
First of all, let's get a few
things straight: if you are a guy who is entertaining gay or bisexual fantasies
by being with a Transsexual, then you have come to the wrong place, period. You
have got to understand this: a TS girl is like any other woman on the planet. No
straight woman wants a gay guy and no bisexual woman wants a gay guy who thinks
of her as a guy. A bi-sexual woman wants another woman. A straight woman wants a
straight guy. She may date or marry a bisexual guy, but obviously he won't be
fulfilling his fantasies with her, as she is not a guy.
So, if you look at a transsexual
woman as being a "she-male" (horribly offensive term), or a woman with
"something extra", then you have completely missed the fact that a TS woman is
NOT male in any way, form. Yes, that is what I said.
What? you say. But a woman
doesn't have a penis, does she? YES! We sometimes are born that way, but all are
still women. Let's examine a few things: what makes you a woman or a man? Is it
your genitals? If you are a guy and your penis is cut off tomorrow, would you
all of a sudden become a female? NO! Look at what happened to John Bobbit, who
had his penis cut off. Did he become a woman all of a sudden until it was
The fact is, gender identity
comes from the brain, not the genitals. We all start off as female in the mother
and some will turn into males. But every so often, what happens is that the
brain stays female identified and yet the body turns into male, or even
ambiguous, as in the case of intersexed, those born with both genitals. In some
other cases, the body turns female while the brain stays male.
My brain, my identification is
all female. My body is rather ambiguous, looking much more female than male.
Because of this, I personally hate the fact I have a penis. I grew up showering
in the dark so I wouldn't have to see it. I sit down to pee, and I have thrown
up at the sight of it. I am all female, guys, and so are the other TS's I know.

A transvestite is different:
that is a guy who gets his kicks dressing as a chick. He doesn't identify as a
female, he identifies as male.
I however, identify as female,
not male. I consider myself simply as a woman in need of cosmetic surgery, not
much different from any other woman.
In fact, I don't even think of
myself as "TS". I am just a woman, period. I use the term "TS" because it is
what others understand.
A transsexual woman is NOT a gay
guy! That is, however, sometimes true for transvestites and crossdressers but
that is NOT TS. TS's are not homosexuals, and that is a medical fact. If a TS
were gay, she would be attracted to women, and be a lesbian. Anytime she is
attracted to guys, she is straight.
So, if a gay guy wants me, then
he has just insulted me greatly. If a bisexual man wants me, then he has also
just insulted me, if he is in fact seeing me as the male part to his attraction.
It means he doesn't see me as the woman I am, he sees me as something else. To
understand us, you simply have to ask yourself: what would any other woman think
of this? Can you imagine climbing into bed with a woman and telling her you are
into her because she looks like a guy? She would slap you so hard it would make
your head spin.
Now, if a guy who is
open-minded, and has what I call "vision to see the future surgeries", can see
me simply as a woman, and not "something extra", then he has made the first and
greatest step towards getting to know me. After all, you fall in love with a
person's BRAIN, not their BODY. Falling for the body only is LUST, which easily
assumes the disguise of love. Don't be fooled, and don't try to fool your TS
girl, as she will figure you out quicker than you can say "but baby...."
Now, let's talk sex. This
doesn't hold true for every TS woman in the world, as women are as different
from each other mentally and emotionally as are men. Within the genders you have
such a wide variety of people. Within men you have the Arnold Schwarzenegger
types, and also the effeminate gay guy. But they are all men. Within the women
you have the hard core biker chick who drinks beer and shoots pool, and the
ultra-feminine Liz Taylor type. All women. Transsexual women are the same: we
are as different as night and day from each other. Understand that first.
When it comes to me, you will
never touch my penis. If you do you will make me cry and I will lose the mood. I
hate that damn thing, it is a horrible thing to have to live with, being a woman
with this "thing". Being with me sexually means that I will enjoy pleasing you
and watching you being pleased with my actions. It gives me pleasure to see you
enjoying me; the greatest joy when you are experiencing me, feeling me, seeing
me as the person I truly am: just a chick. I will get my orgasmic pleasure later
after the surgery. So, once again you see that if you are entertaining some
"gay" fantasy you will be sorely disappointed with me in bed. If you are a
straight guy, you will be quite pleased to discover I am gentle, beautiful, and
move like any other woman sexually. Now, I know that holds true for many, many
pre-op TS's. I have heard it several times. A post-op TS woman has her vagina,
and if you get sexual with her, you may find in many instances that it takes
some extra effort to bring her to orgasm. She may like a extended time period of
love-making to reach her climax. This has to do with her surgery. Not all TS
women are that way, of course, so you must learn your woman's wants and needs.
The problem between the sexes is
that men often (not always, dears, k?) objectify women and thru these
masturbatory fantasies they lose their empathy. They never have realistic
fantasies. Their fantasies are this "perfect" type of world. There are no odors,
feelings, awkwardness, nothing involved but this "perfect" type of sex. They
entertain these fantasies and then someday, they might try to make them a
reality. What they often find, however, is that no one wants to just jump in bed
with them like they do in their fantasies; and that feelings arise and hearts
Men often think that because
they think this stuff, and because they feel that way, that women must think
that way too. WRONG! Women usually think very, very different from men.
Women often fantasize about
their "Prince-Charming", the one guy who is sweet and strong, who sweeps them
off their feet. We can sometimes orgasm thinking about being loved and
appreciated. In fact, some ONLY orgasm that way!
And so the battle begins for
understanding between the two genders. Men who have been married and been in
love for a long time are usually much more understanding and gentle people than
the single guy. This is from their interaction with a woman who teaches them how
to "feel" more deeply.
Obviously, seeing a pre-op TS
woman as something attractive physically to a straight guy takes a very open
mind and a empathetic heart. We understand that. But, you have to look at a
person's mind-set: because that is where any real relationship is formed. You
don't marry a "body", and if you do, you will soon learn that it is a shallow,
meaningless existence bringing no real fulfillment. The emotional/mental
connection is what forms a true bond that can weather any storm. Looks fade,
people, looks fade.
On the upside, you will many
times find that a transsexual woman is a bit more "appreciative" of being able
to live their life as they feel it. This oftentimes makes for a woman who really
LOVES being a woman, and is many times more feminine than the average woman.
(Again, people, there is ALWAYS the exception to the rule!!!) We are not often
burnt out on wearing skirts or heels, and many enjoy doing makeup daily. It is
for the reason that many of us were denied the chance to do it when younger, and
so now that we can, we go all out and really love being ourselves! As for me, I
have the very feminine, soft voice, and a very feminine walk. I do my makeup
everyday except Sunday, which is pampering time and I do my facials and nails,
etc. I dress very nice, every day. Everywhere I go with you, no one will ever
suspect a thing.
If you have the right mind-set
you can find the woman of your dreams here at the site, but you can't do it by
coming in and being a jerk.
So let's discuss manners. Think
of coming into the
chat room as walking into someone's home where there are many classy, great
people there, all having a good conversation. So you walk in and say, what? "I
want to 69...any takers? " Now what would happen to you? You would get told to
leave, or maybe even get thrown out the door.
But say you walk in, smile a
bit, take a seat and wait to join in on a conversation. You listen to others,
what are they talking about? And when you have something to add, you say
something witty and maybe charming, followed by a smile. THAT is what women
notice, guys. We may not get right up and walk over and sit next to you but some
of us just logged your actions into our brains, and thought, "he seems nice...."
Now you are in our minds as a
nice guy, and the sky's the limit as long as you don't blow it. We are watching
you, paying attention to every word, even when you think we aren't.
And that is exactly how you
should treat the TS chat room. Be nice and don't be impatient: it takes time to
get to know someone, ok? If you come in and act like a jerk you will get kicked
I encourage you to read up on
transsexual women, and learn all you can about us. And most importantly: get
real with yourself about why you are here. If it has anything to do with being
gay, then sayonara! You have found the wrong place! If you came here
expecting something else, maybe wild sex, and then learned something that has
altered your perception of us to be one more flattering and kind, then stick
around. As I said, we women are good at teaching you guys how to "feel", how to
respond to us. We are usually more gentle by nature, and it is the perfect
compliment between the sexes.
I hope this has been of some
value to you.
So what does a transsexual girl
want? Respect, love, kindness, humor. A "nice" person who sees us as our true
selves. Listen, this I can probably guarantee: our greatest fight, our toughest
challenge in life has been: getting others to see us for who we really are, just
So, if you can do that, if you
are here because you simply think of this site as another way to meet good
quality women, then you have come to the right place! Enjoy your stay and best
