  What Transsexuality Is

                                      Definition, Cause, and History

 

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

Transsexuality, also termed 'Gender Dysphoria' is now reaching the point of being reasonably well understood, though many myths and general foolishness about the subject still abound. This document concerns the classic definition of transsexuality, as defined by Benjamin, Money, Green, and so forth. Intersexuality and transgenderism will not be addressed other than obliquely.

        IN A NUTSHELL: This is about standard, classical transsexuality.

    SUMMARY DEFINITION:

      Gender Dysphoria, literally a misery with regard to gender, is the condition of being in a state of conflict between gender and physical sex.

      A transsexual is a person in which the sex-related structures of the brain that define gender identity are exactly opposite the physical sex organs of the body.

      Put even more simply, a transsexual is a mind that is literally, physically, trapped in a body of the opposite sex

     

      IN A NUTSHELL: Transsexuality means having the wrong body for the gender one really is.

    GRAND OVERVIEW:

Gender and Sex are very separate things, though the terms are often considered interchangeable by the less aware. Sex is physical form and function while Gender is a component of identity. There can be considered to be some legitimate overlap in that the brain is structured in many sex-differentiated ways, and the brain is the seat of identity. However, with regard to the dilemma of the transsexual, the difference between sex and gender are at the very core of the issue.

A transsexual person, born to all appearance within a given physical sex, is aware of being of a gender opposite to that physical sex. This conflict, between gender identity and physical sex, is almost always manifest from earliest awareness, and is the cause of enormous suffering. It is common for transsexuals to be aware of their condition at preschool ages.

This agony can and does lead to self destruction unless treated. The incredible difficulties that surround achieving treatment are themselves often agonizing, the sum total of which can play havoc with the lives of the gender dysphoric. Indeed, it is apparent that some fifty percent of transsexuals die by age 30, usually by their own hand. This morbidity is known as the - 

     

      Being a transsexual is not something that can be ignored or suppressed forever. Unlike the facinations of  the crossdresser or the partially altered transgenderist, the absolute compulsion of classical transsexualism is a matter of life and death. Social oppression, culturally indoctrinated shame, self loathing, and bigotry slaughter transsexuals. With treatment and support, comes survival and a successful life. The success rate for the treatment of transsexuals is among the highest in medicine.

      Transsexuality occurs roughly equally in both physical males and physical females, and is caused by factors (such as a critically timed hormonal release caused by stress in the mother, or by the presence of hormone mimicking chemicals present during critical development) which interfere with fetal development. Transsexuality occurs independently of sexual orientation, and occurs in humans and in other animals, such as apes, monkeys, dogs, cats, rats, and mice, among those studied.

      The standard treatment for a diagnosis of transsexuality is to reassign the transsexual to a physical sex congruent with their gender identity, a process involving the administration of appropriate hormones and surgery. The success of this treatment is exceedingly high, and many transsexuals go on to live successful lives. 

      Although transsexuality is not the same thing as homosexuality, the two can sometimes occur in conjunction with each other, and there is evidence that both are created by the similar mechanisms, in utero.

      Transsexuality differs greatly from the commonly - and erroneously - associated terms "Crossdressing" or "Transvestitism", as well as "Transgenderism".

      Whereas transsexuality is concerned primarily with gender identity and the correction of physical form to fit that identity, transvestitism is primarily a sexual fetish that occurs after puberty, and the transvestite has no desperation to redress a physical incongruity. The transvestite gains satisfaction from appearing as the opposite sex only, and the behavior is apparently not rooted in a biological, pre-natal basis, but is learned. Transvestitism, unlike transsexuality, primarily is the activity of males.

      A recent term in usage is "Transgenderism", essentially an empty word conjured up as a neutral label for any individual not conforming to common social rules of gender expression. The term was created to help unite very disparate individuals under a vague commonality of interest in gender, in order to provide a basis for mutual benefit and support within an often violently antagonistic society.

      Transgenderism can refer to those who crossdress, those who are intersexed, those who live in the opposite societal role of their physical sex, those who play with gender expression for any purpose whatsoever, and transsexuals as well. While there is potentially great survival benefit in this mutual association labeled as 'transgenderism', the primary function is social and political, and not clinical, despite the efforts of some to legitimize this essentially meaningless term.

      The exact number of transsexuals in any given population will probably never be accurately known (the best current estimate is one per 30,000). Because transsexuality is most commonly caused by stress-related hormonal changes in the womb, the number of transsexuals in any society would logically flux, based on the current state of affairs within a generation. There is evidence that more transsexuals are born during times during or following war, for instance. Even so, the condition is fairly rare.

      Several interesting physical and mental indications have been statistically shown to occur in relation to transsexuality. One factor is intelligence, the transsexual is on average two standard deviations in intellect greater than the base population, and one standard deviation higher than those defined as homosexual.  This probability of high intelligence is currently not explained, though there are suggestions that it may be the result of the unique and somewhat mixed brain 'wiring' of the transsexual, who may benefit from a combination of male and female structures or functions.

      Another curious correlation is creativity, transsexuals tend to possess a high degree of artistic and general creative ability.

      Transsexuals commonly show some physical indications of their condition that may cause trouble for them from parents or peers.
      The male-to-female transsexual may be slow to develop male sex characteristics such as body hair, voice change, and overall physical development compared to the general population. The Female-to-Male Transsexual may display evidence of masculinization of bone structure, hair, or voice. These traits are generally very subtle, but often present.

      There is tremendous social bigotry -and often outright violence- expressed towards the transsexual, and this often makes the life of the transsexual very difficult. Some transsexuals who have completely successful in transition to the appropriate sex therefore choose varying degrees of secrecy about their state and history. Other transsexuals never succeed in transforming physically to the point of being undetectable as transsexuals, and tend to suffer accordingly.

      Transsexuals suffer many hurdles to achieve their required correction of the error of their birth. They must face society, the medical establishment, the common loss of all family and friends, the cost of treatment, the extreme difficulty of the required 'half-way' phase of transition which may last up to two years, and the inner turmoil of self-doubt and conditioned self loathing of their condition. It has been estimated (in 1981) that about 50% do not survive the malady, ending up dead by the age of 30, usually by their own hand. Almost all of this morbidity is attributed to the additional burden caused by the violent unacceptance of society, the rejection of family and friends, and the inability to find decent care.

      The drive that motivates the transsexual is essentially a matter of life and
      death

     

     
    IN A NUTSHELL: Transsexuals suffer because they are trapped in a body of the wrong sex. This hurts so much that they are driven to fix that problem, or die trying. Transsexuality begins in the womb and occurs in many animals besides man. Transsexuality and homosexuality seem to share a common prenatal causality, but are not the same thing. Transsexuality is sometimes associated with things it is not really related to, such as crossdressing, for social or political reasons.

        The Natural History Of Transsexuality:

Since transsexuality is caused by hormonal alteration of the nervous system of developing fetuses, and occurs in perhaps all mammalian species, it would be reasonable to infer that it has been around for a very long time. Indeed, since birth defects in general are just part of nature, it would be unthinkable to imagine an era of Man devoid of transsexuals. We have always been, and from time to time, history has recorded that fact.

The only clues we have of paleolithic transsexuals would be by considering the societies of aboriginal peoples still living with stone age technologies. The few left remaining on the earth, in the rain forests of South America, or the remaining unspoiled lands of Africa, all have reverential positions for the transsexuals that are born to them. In such societies, Transsexuals are considered magical, kin to the gods or spirits, and possessed of shamanic powers.

Every society in history has had some name, role or way of relating to the transsexual, from ancient Canaan and Turkey to India, even to the present day.

Examples abound. For instance, in ancient Rome existed the 'Gallae', Phrygian worshipers of the Goddess Cybele. Once decided on their choice of gender and religion, physically male Gallae ran through the streets and threw their own severed genitalia into open doorways, as a ritualistic act.
The household receiving these remains considered them a great blessing. In return, the household would nurse the Gallae back to health. The Gallae then ceremoniously received female clothes, and assumed a female identity. Commonly, they would be dressed as brides, or in other splendid clothing.

In India, ritual practices for transsexual individuals continue to the present day. Called Hijiras, this sect also worship a Goddess, and undergo a primitive sort of sex reassignment surgery. The Hijiras are treated in a rather hypocritical fashion within Indian society however, in that they are both despised and revered at the same time. Hijiras often are paid to attend a bless weddings, and to act as spiritual and social advisors, but are also shunned as less than worthy eunuchs. Yet in other circumstances, such as social situations, they are accorded the status of true females.

The Dine, or Navajos of the southwest United States, recognize three sexes instead of only two. For the Dine, there are Males, Females, and Nadles, which are considered somewhat both and neither. While those born intersexed or hermaphroditic are automatically considered Nadle, physically 'normal' individuals may define as Nadle based on their own self-definition of gender identity. The Nadle once possessed far greater respect before the Navaho were conquered  and their culture all but obliterated by the forced assumption of Catholicism.

Among the Sioux, the Winkte served much the same function, and individuals could assume the complete role of their preferred gender. Physical females lived as male warriors, and had wives, while physical males lived their lives completely as women. In Sioux society no special magic was associated with this, it was just considered a way of correcting a mistake of nature. Winkte would also perform primitive reassignment operations of a sort, and history records the process used by physical males: riding for days on a special hard saddle to crush the testicles and thus effectively castrate the individual.

Being transsexual in ancient cultures took a special form of courage too, even if society may have been embracing of the Transsexed!

Whether it is the Sererr of the Pokots of Kenya, the Xaniths of Islamic Oman, the Mahu of Tahiti, or even the Sekrata of Madagascar, the story is essentially the same: transsexuality was a fact of life, and a place in society was made for the gender dysphoric to be themselves.

The modern classification of transsexuality and the medical intervention of sex reassignment  was first attempted in Germany in 1930. Einar Wegener sought treatment and was operated upon. Afterwards, she lived as Lily Elbe, but alas not for long...the surgery had tragic complications. The first well known, surviving post operative transsexual was American ex-G.I. George Jorgensen, who became Christine Jorgensen in 1953. Christine became the center of a whirlwind of publicity despite an effort to avoid it, and had little choice but to capitalize on the misfortune. Christine became the first 'Media Transsexual' - or as some transsexuals put it 'Transie Martyr' , and suffered both the benefit and curse of fame. Christine starred in several hollywood movies as a result, and became celebrity enough to bring transsexualism out of the closet and into view of post-industrial society.

For decades only the rare individual physician dared treat the transsexual, while the mainstream medical community considered transsexuality to be a mere mental disorder without a biological basis. The first professional to truly try to help transsexuals with compassion and scientific study was Dr. Harry Benjamin. Dr. Benjamin carefully treated and studied the cases of transsexuals, essentially devoting most of his career to the project. The results of his carefully documented studies were published in 1966 in his book "The Transsexual Phenomenon". This work led directly to the benefits that we modern transsexuals enjoy, for it opened the door to serious study of the condition. Currently, the worldwide Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association continues his work, and helps to set standards of care for the treatment of transsexuals by the medical establishment.
 
Recent study of brain functioning has shed important light on the causes of transsexuality, and surgical techniques as well as overall treatment continue to improve. Society is slowly becoming accepting once again of the inevitable transsexual in it's midst, and it may well be that the future will hold even greater help for the transsexuals born into future ages

    IN A NUTSHELL: Transsexuals have always existed. In the ancient world, transsexuality was both accepted and respected. Throughout the ages, transsexuals have attempted to correct the error of their bodies, with varying results. The modern, technological world at last provides a real chance for the transsexual to finally, truly correct the errors of Nature.

Know More About Shemale....

All Shemales were born men and have gone to a lot of effort and expense to become the sexy 'woman' you want to meet. This is not a kink or a passing fancy for them - to give you an idea most shemales would have spent years and thousands of dollars transforming their male body into something more feminine. 

In their own minds they ARE women who just happened to be born in a male body.  So if you really want to have a good time you will appreciate this and treat them like a woman when you meet or are playing with them.

For example

  - Do not call them a shemale, transgender, crossdresser or any other name.

   - Compliment them like you would compliment a woman

  - Act like you would around a normal woman you are interested in. Whether you are a gentleman who opens doors for women, a person who buys flowers for women you are having sex with or a more dominant person who takes control of a relationship - be yourself !

Mentally and Emotionally they want and need to be treated like a woman

BUT Physically they have different erogenous and sexual hot spots which we will cover in other articles.

      Foreplay

 

 


When it comes to foreplay you can treat a shemale nearly fully as a woman.

In their minds they ARE women and for the most part respond emotionally and physically during foreplay just like a woman would. So what works on women (from kissing, to sweet words, to caressing their breasts) will work on shemales at this stage.

And when it comes to the sort of sex talk you have during light foreplay - being dirty is usually not a turn on for her. Usually what really gets their motor running are compliments !

Remember that even though a shemale looks sexy now, she wasn't always that way - so they are usually self-conscious about their looks.

So genuine compliments about how good she looks are a big big plus - and will get her even more receptive to you.

AND since they spend a LOT of their time trying to be as feminine as possible, be sure to make your compliments about how feminine they are (e.g. Wow you look so feminine, You have the sexiest legs I've ever seen on a woman).

In fact the best things to compliment her on are

  • How feminine her face looks - she will have gone to a lot of effort to look as much like a woman as possible (from learning makeup to even surgery)

  • How her hair makes her look sexy (or good or .. you get the idea) - Again they would have taken a lot of time to trying different hairstyles.

  • Her legs being so smooth or feminine - Getting slim sexy legs and keeping them hairless take her a lot of hard work, so if she's got nice legs a compliment about them will go over well.

  • He breasts (really!) - Remember that they did not have breast before since they were born as men, so if they have a really nice rack it means they've either taken years on hormone therapy to grow them or spent a lot of money on plastic surgery.  So tastefully complimenting them can be a plus.

Of course these compliments need to be genuine, so just take her best feature and give a her an honest compliment about it - she'll really appreciate it.


What Gives The Pleasure

For a Shemale the pleasure comes in two forms, the emotional and physical.

Emotionally a shemale enjoys having a man treat her like a woman - and having sex and penetrating her is the ultimate expression of that for many shemales.

Physically they enjoy anal sex for the same reason gay men do and most women don't.

People who were born as men (including shemales) have a prostrate gland which is right next to the anal channel.  When they receive anal sex, this gland is stimulated by the rubbing and causes the pleasure and ultimately the ejaculation.

 

Proper Preparation

Unlike a vagina, the anal passage does provide lubrication so you need to provide it yourself, so use a water based lubricant.

I also highly recommend using a condom due to he risks of unprotected sex.

AND make sure your fingernails are short and rounded with no jagged edges .. if you going to put your finger in someone make sure its not going to cut them !

 

Before Penetration

You do not want to start penetration until the shemale is relaxed and lubricated.

So proper foreplay and getting her in the right state of mind is needed.

Once she is relaxed, put a condom on and put LOTS of lubricant on your penis

 

Actual Penetration

Unlike any movies or books your may read - you want to very SLOWLY penetrate a shemale anally.  If she becomes uncomfortable just stop penetration, hold still and kiss and play with her until she is relaxed again and ready for you to continue.

An shemale who is inexperienced with sex may take a few minutes to fully penetrate initially - be patient though and you will be rewarded.

On the other hand an experienced shemale may be able to take you all in a few seconds !

Once you're in, start experimenting with slow in out or fast jabbing motions to see which one gets her moaning the loudest !

 

Most Important Tip

Now guys you know how once you cum it takes a while before you are interested in sex again?

Well the same things happens for most shemales !

So you could be happily fucking her anally and she's moaning and enjoying herself when suddenly she cums ... and its no longer enjoyable for her.

She suddenly goes from having a rod of pleasure inside her which is stimulating her to higher pleasures - to having a foreign object moving inside her which is just irritating.

So what do you do?

Well you need to make sure you either

 i). Do not let her cum until you are ready (e.g. firm grip on the base of her penis)

 ii). Stop fucking her once she cums and wait until she's ready again before continuing.

Transexuals consider themselves females who are unlucky enough to be born in the male body.  Most go through transition to become physically more feminine.

Some are happy to become passable enough to live their lives as a women without going through full sexy re-assignment surgery (which takes away their male genitalia and replaces it with a simulation of female genitalia) while others will continue their transition to the end.

Generally speaking a pre-op transexual is a transexual who has not gone through sex re-assiangment surgery while a post-op transexual is one who has gone through this surgery.

It should be noted that this surgery is very expensive so it may take a transexual many years to save enough for it - so while some pre-op transexuals are happy to stay pre-op, others are just waiting to make enough money to go through the surgery

 

 

 

 

The Quick Guide to Heterosexual Dating for Male-To-Female Transsexuals

 

1. If you date men, you are always in potentially fatal danger. Be aware.

2. Make certain, before you even consider a date, that your partner is FULLY aware of your status and is not significantly bothered by it. Never date anyone who does not know about you.

3. Be aware that in our society, men who are secure enough to accept you are rare. there are predators who attack transsexuals, confused sorts who seek to use and then punish transsexuals, and those who try to be accepting but fail, often violently.

4. Be honest, be aware, and be very, very cautious.

5. Some men may only like you because of your transsexuality, and may find you uninteresting post-operatively. Be sure of the attractions that occur.

6. It is not all dark, but you will have to search more carefully, and be more aware, than nontranssexual women. Even with all the above, know that it is possible to find caring partners and loving friends.
 
 
 

The reasons

 
 
Dating both pre, and even post-op, involves concerns that nontranssexual folk do not have to concern themselves with. Some of these issues are serious.

Most, if not all of the dangerous issues revolve around sexual and gender insecurities. These insecurities are not dangerous in the transsexual, they are very dangerous in nontranssexuals.

Our culture still has a lot of bigotry and mindless hatred in it, and much of this evil comes from religious origins.
 
 

Homosexuality and Gender Threat

 
 
Early Christianity, Judaism, and to a lesser degree, Islam, became dominant in the western world by virtue of being warfare based religions. The universe was spiritually divided into an Absolute Good, and and Absolute Evil, and the basic premise was that the Good and True believers in the faith had to overcome everyone and everything else. To accomplish this, two things had to be done: one, the group, tribe, and religion had to concern itself with converting by any means possible other groups, and two, it had to become as populous as possible.

This last requirement is the basic reason behind homosexuality being made into a crime and an Evil. More babies means more tribe members. More tribe members means more ability to conquer and convert. Homosexuality produces fewer babies than heterosexuality. It cannot be tolerated by a belief system bent on domination.

You may be a woman, but be you pre-op or post-op, the social stigma of ever possessing a penis is there. If you date a man, those old Judeo-Christian issues in our western society kick in, and problems can occur. Sometimes these problems can be fatal.
 
 

Transsexuals and the Foundations of Assumed Truth

 
 
Transsexuals, by their existence, threaten basic assumptions and truths about gender and religion. The 'Evil' of homosexuality is shown to be the violent nonsense it is when the transsexual enters into the equation. Am I, a post-op, a woman? A surgically altered man? Something outside the scope of current belief and understanding?

As for the pre-op transsexual, then all possibility of a clear answer becomes lost. Is a pre-op a woman, a man, a woman in some ways, a man in others? To the average, simple mind, the result is paradox, confusion, and the destruction of neat, tidy categories and labels. It is hard to believe in religious prohibitions when reality itself shows the limits of them. If the word of god is so limited, so meaningless, the universe itself becomes upset for some folks. They find themselves adrift, without answers, forced to think, perhaps for the very first time. They begin to question themselves and their place in the universe, they are filled with nagging doubts.

Scared, confused people can be very dangerous. They can become violent, they can kill.

Far too many transsexuals have been murdered by men that just could not handle the issues they were forced to confront, the doubt they felt, the insecurity they suffered, or the 'Truth' that came tumbling down.

Sometimes the conflict is so severe, that men become convinced that the only way to restore their lost faith is to destroy that which caused it to be questioned. Such men deliberately seek out transsexuals to punish, humiliate, control, or harm them.

These same issues can also lead to other reactions besides murder. Some people are attracted to the forbidden and the rejected, and find it exciting. Such folks will find you desirable only as long as you fit this category.

Other folks try very hard to accept the transsexual, but fail at the task, because the conflict between what they were raised to believe, and what they want to be accepting about, is too much. In the end, sometimes the original 'Truth' wins out, especially because society supports it.

In all cases, the root cause of this nastiness is fear and instilled hatred of homosexuality, and this comes from only one place, religion. It is pervasive in our culture, because our culture is steeped in Judeo-Christian values and beliefs.
 
 

The Game Of 'What Am I ?'

 
 
If you are a Male-To-Female transsexual and you are attracted to men, then what is really going on? Are you gay or straight or what? The answer depends on how one chooses to look at the transsexual.

If what matters is identity, is the mind and the heart, then you are a heterosexual wom
