"Androphilic transsexuals don’t experience cross gender arousal and neither do gay males when they crossdress"...oh yes they do. Another great Blanchard Myth.I know gay men who dress up sometimes and yes it turns them on they like being a sexy women at times (got a sexier wardrobe of clothes than I do and I have transitioned).
And then the very many trans people who don't get aroused by 'just' thinking of themselves as a woman (if any ever have done) .
Remember that what AGP is supposed to be, you ONLY get aroused by thinking of yourself as a woman...not being a woman having sex with someone else...everyone forgets that little detail, but you can check out the AGP tests yourself. It is defined very narrowly, you are ONLY aroused by the thought of yourself as having a woman's body (or parts of one) . And nothing else arouses you whatsoever. You don't get turned on by looking at an attractive man or woman, no other sexual fantasy ever happens....
I can honestly say I never got sexually excited by 'just' thinking of myself as a woman, or by clothes, I had heaps of fantasies about doing all sorts of wild things with others as a woman though......And when I dressed up as a woman, when I was part time, I got relaxed I felt more myself, I could drop my male act for awhile. It was mental trick to give myself permission to act the way I really wanted to do.
Oh yes sometimes I'd look at myself and think that I looked pretty sexy and wished I had someone to have sex with....sigh.
You have to remember everything Blanchard claims has never been proven, even by himself. They are just claims. They are no more meaningful than what the Pope says from a religious point of view. And the slut shaming about sexual fantasies pisses me off, because that is all it is, from a catholic extremist no less with questionable sexuality himself.
So what if I had fantasies about having sex being a woman when I hit puberty ...what was I supposed to fantasise about? Being a big hairy man rogering a little blond woman?
Ok take an example, you have a fantasy about glamming yourself up, you look in the mirror and say 'I am looking hot tonight', You deliberately put on sexy underwear, your boy (or girl) friend picks you up, you go out for dinner and dancing, you kiss and cuddle, touch each other up, then go home (or maybe never make it) and have great sex together. Now that is a standard cis female fantasy...and is not AGP in any way and many trans women have had that one (I have many times) .
An AGP fantasy would only involve you having a woman's body, looking at it and touching yourself up, no one else is involved ... ever.
Lots of people here blaming themselves for having AGP...when they don't actually have it. Go and check out the AGP tests and see what they are.
In fact there is zero proof that it even exists....you know someone has a shaky argument when they have to invent things like 'pseudo homosexuality' to hold it together...
'Pseudo homosexuality' (and bisexuality) what total nonsense. By that argument half the gay men around are really 'pseudo homosexuals'.
And the poor old trans bisexual women get a hammering...if you have sex with with a man it is 'pseudo bisexuality' that is somehow different from what bisexual men do.
Notice there is no such thing to them as 'pseudo heterosexuality' when they have sex with a woman though.....that's true sex you see....
How did anyone believe this nonsense.
Take me, I did some exploring of my sexuality in the past, I had sex with men as a man, though I am mostly female attracted.
Now they would classify me back then as a gay man, as 'all bisexual men are really gay'. If 1 in 100 sexual encounters were with a man you are gay.
Now when I transitioned (and still bisexual) I am AGP...because I now have this 'pseudo bisexuality' and I am really a straight man.
Trans women bisexuals are all really 'straight men' but all bisexual men are all really 'gay men'.
Make up your minds boys .... was I 'gay' back then and then amazingly became totally 'straight' when I transitioned?
Added: And their derogatory misgendering terminology. If I have sex with a woman I am having lesbian sex. If it is with a man it is straight sex.
I am a bisexual women. I am not, as they keep claImIing, a gay man or a bisexual man or a heterosexual man..
They are just saying you are and always will be men ...just like the Catholic church or the TERFs do.
Sorry folks the Australian Govt diagrees with you and I am legally a woman.
