Yes, it's essentially the same thing.
It goes something like this..
We're born, we have female brains, we think like girls, but we don't know that we think like girls.
Our parents don't want us to behave too much like girls, so they try to condition us out of it.
You can't play with that, you can't dress like that, you can't act like that, sit still and don't fidget.
Why do you keep asking us so many silly questions? Can't you just go read a book quietly? On and on and on...
We get a bit traumatized, our subconscious blocks out a lot of our awareness of our original 'id' identity thingy at a preconcious level, we forget about a lot of the things we originally wanted to do, because they are 'wrong', but we find we quite enjoy sitting and reading a book quietly, and that isn't 'wrong', and if we demonstrate an advanced vocabulary at a young age people are suitably impressed, so we do quite a lot of that, but otherwise we feel kind of lost and disconnected in the world.
We go to school, we still think like girls, we don't interact well with our male peers.
The teachers or our parents notice that we don't have many friends, so we get assessed for having a disability of social interaction, and diagnosed with Aspergers. We go, oh right, that must be it then, I guess that makes some kind of sense, thanks Mr Asperger, and we set out to start life anyway.
Gradually as we get older the doubts begin to set in, lots of things don't add up.
We start to figure out that just thinking about being the opposite sex is always somehow exciting, and we somehow can't imagine a much of a future being the same sex. We find out that lots of other people who were diagnosed with Aspergers also turned out to be transgender, or lots of people who are transgender were also diagnosed with Aspergers. We say, wow, isn't that a strange coincidence, there must really be something to this Aspergers thing, we really should do more research into the biology of that..
Nevermind that it's the 'Aspergers' concept that's the 'social construct' and we were basically just girls born with penises all along. ;-)
We go see another doctor, they say, "Well it must be your aspergers that's hindering your ability to effectively communicate with people, so we can't give you any treatment for being transgender until you get therapy/counselling for that, you really need to see a different specialist".
Except that there is no different specialist, because none of the doctors really seems to know the biology behind this stuff, they only know about what they read in books, which is mostly rubbish.
If only that nice Mr Hans Asperger hadn't wanted to make a name for himself as a psychologist, we wouldn't be in this mess.
So now we're just stuffed. If we try to tell people the truth they don't believe us, they believe the books because they derive all their sense of status by their continual repetition/enforcement of the received wisdom they have obtained from authority figures, and they don't like being questioned, unless you can prove you are a greater authority, which if you are claiming to be female you must obviously not be. Men are pretty stupid like that.
They only give you an hour to try to explain yourself, and you don't know what their existing knowledge base is like, but if you start to go into too many technical details about things like biology that only reinforces their belief that you must have Aspergers.
Oh, and most of the people who wrote all those books and came up with all those psychological theories they learned about in college were actually people like us too, coz if they hadn't been somewhat queer/adrogynous themselves they would just have been out getting laid a lot and would not have spent all their time trying to make a name for themselves by 'systematizing' the world, deriving new theories and writing books about it.
We go, look, the worlds going to hell because so many people are queer now and a lot of them either don't know, or can't accept it, so they are gradually all going quietly psychotic. They say, "well I'm sure it's just down to inadequate education, the food supply, the media, social forces, etc. etc. we should really just apply for more grants so we can do more studies", oh and while we're doing that the medical-industrial complex is going great guns selling overpriced placebos, so actually fixing the real underlying problems would be bad for business.
It's just really sad, because there are all these 5,6,7 year olds diagnosed with Aspergers now, and maybe they won't figure out for another decade what's actually going on with them.
