I'm suggesting a 19 yr old having a 14 yr old boyfriend, it's an underage thing from where I'm standing pipx. There have always been a percentage I should think Jack.
Attratction to underage persons is a separate issue wich is not limited to -- or associated with -- transgender conditions. There is absolutely no reason to believe that such feelings are more common among crossdreamers than other people. Which is why my reading of this article is focused on the crossdreamer and transgender aspects. As I say, that part of her story is not uncommon among girlfags, crossdreamers and FTM transgender people.
Recently I came across a blog post by a man who describes himself as a lesbian inside of a male body https://noveltrove.com/about-me-and-why-i-write , thus I'm not surprised by the article above.
Welcome to Crossdream Life, Unexpected! I hope you take the time to tell us more about yourself over in the Introduction forum.
And thank you for sharing that blog post. I know of another fellow male to female crossdreamer (who shall not be named) who started publishing ebooks on Amazon. He suddenly found himself having a best-seller on Amazon's lesbian charts. That is: Not only did gynephilic MTF crossdreamers love his book; non-transgender lesbians did as well! (Which debunks the myth that MTF transgender people cannot understand the psyche or sexuality of women!)Uli Meyer, who has written about FTM crossdreamers and their erotica says:Meyer says, refering to the Boys Love genre (gay male love stories written by women for women):
"BL fans' preoccupation with gay men can be understood better in context of the practice of girlfags and transfags, i.e. female-born persons who eroticize and identify with gay men.
"By identifying with one or more of the gay male characters in manga, the fans/artists cannot just take on a traditionally male gender role, but a traditionally male sexual position, which allows them to experience themselves, among other things, as penetrator (seme) and a male counterpart (uke) as penetrated.
"Thus, the transgression of sexuality and gender in BL can be quite literal, enabling its readers/creators to identify or feel with the male characters on a physical level, in a process I call 'creative transvestism'"
And yes, many FTM readers identify with the active partner (seme).
