once more on The Who, on reflection i much prefer the ftm interpretation. the other take would appear to have an anti-trans theme - 'boys should be boys' - with not much evidence of subversion (please correct me if you see differently), other than the actual unusual choice of subject matter.

i definitely remember that when Townshend came out as bisexual about ten years ago he said something like 'i understand how women feel because i am one.'

Here's how I see it—the nameless boy in this song is being feminized involuntarily. It's most clear in the lyrics"
"They practice making up on my face
Yeah, I feel lucky if I get trousers to wear
Spend evenings taking hairpins from my hair
Chorus:
I'm a boy, I'm a boy
But my ma won't admit it."

Do you ever visit websites like Fictionmania, which is mostly transgender and crossdresser porn? On this site, there are a significant number of stories in which boys/teenage boys are cleverly manipulated or coerced into crossdressing, used as models for girl's clothing, etc.—e.g. forced feminization or sissification, done by moms, aunts, sisters, dominating women or even dominating men. In these stories, it's almost inevitable that the boy adapts to, is trapped in, or discovers that he delights in being feminized.

It's as if this Who song is a 1960s-era vignette from early on in one of these online stories. Is it anti-trans? The ones in this genre that you see on Fictionmania are not-very-politically-correct products of the fertile imaginations of some transgender writers.

^The Who again: i'd say the difference is that in the erotic fiction the author and the readers are really on the side of the feminisation, and the subject is powerless to resist it. the song seems to celebrate what sounds like a successful defiance of feminisation. it presents masculinity much more positively than femininity, which is why i think it works well as an ftm anthem. x

Your body is a shell. Change it.

I love it when the kids over at tumblr say: "I am going to repost this one forever!"

 
Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair shortWear shirts and boots
Because it's OK to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
Because you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you'd love to know what it's like
Wouldn't youWhat it feels like for a girl 
Silky smoothLips as sweet as candy, baby
Tight blue jeansSkin that shows in patches
Strong inside but you don't know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak 
Do you know what it feels like for a girl
Do you know what it feels like in this world
For a girl
 Hair that twirls on finger tips so gently, baby
Hands that rest on jutting hips repenting
Hurt that's not supposed to show
And tears that fall when no one knowsWhen you're trying hard to be your best
Could you be a little less 
Strong inside but you don't know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak 
In this worldDo you know
Do you know
Do you know what it feels like for a girl
What it feels like in this world

Reading the other discussion on driving and singing reminded me of these two songs that I love singing along to in my car and really identifying with the female singer(s) situations

Well for me lately, it has been Roxy Music's "Rain Rain Rain", largely because I feel like more and more I am living the life articulated in that song.

The extended dance mix:

Rain Rain Rain
Roxy Music

You better take what's left
'Cause I'm feeling rough
In dread of the night getting high
And name on the dress
Stretch far too long
But it pleases the mind
And that's nice
Rain rain rain
She put her head on the line
When she come strong
A single girl about town
And she stands or fall
By the way she moves
Ahead of her time
She can't lose
Rain rain rain
You got trouble in mind
Gets deep 'n' worse
Oh please don't stop getting high
You got lust for life
It don't seem to die
Gonna last for ever
Getting high
Rain rain rain

I am sure I posted this one before on the old forum, but it deserves a re-post here. The first time I heard this song, almost 40 years ago, it brought me chills. I listened to it over and over again without fully understanding why. It has now become biographical.

This is music of Alphred Shnitke very related with my inner female, but with her loneliness, pain and sorrow. I don't know why, but this is make sence for me, music of shadow part of my crossdreaming.
