Sexual terminology has become a major issue, or well, at least one that should raise a laugh.
So let’s clear it up, shall we?
Either male or female, defined at conception. This is immutable and cannot be changed.
Male: an individual specimen with XY chromosomes. Will normally have a penis and testicles.
Female: as above, but with XX chromosomes. Will normally have a vagina, clitoris, ovaries and breasts (in adulthood.)
Sexuality describes how and with whom we wish to have sex. Sexuality serves to ensure that males mate with females to reproduce. In most animals, it is completely straightforward: male animals penetrate female ones and females are penetrated by males. Sexuality, in animals, seems to be entirely a function of sex.
In humans, sexuality is complicated by our high degree of self-awareness. In our species, in some individuals, sexuality is not directly related to sex. In other words, some males have female sexuality and some females have male sexuality.
Male sexuality is defined by: a desire to penetrate; a desire to physically dominate; a desire to protect and provide for; a desire to appropriate to our partners to ourselves, but also a tendency towards promiscuity.
Female sexuality is defined by: a desire to be penetrated; a desire to be physically dominated; a tendency to be risk-avoidant in sex and a tendency to be nurturing.
Inverted Sexuality and transgender homosexuals. In humans, some males have female sexuality and some females have male sexuality. In other words, they have inverted sexuality. We call these individual transgender homosexuals, that is, feminine male homosexuals and masculine female homosexuals.
Other parameters and trait characteristics normally associated with sex may in fact be a consequence of sexuality, since these can appear in cross-sex typical forms in those with inverted sexuality.
Gender is how we express our sexuality. Since there are two sexualities, male and female, there are two genders, masculine and feminine.
Masculine: that set of behaviours and apparel generally considered consistent with male sex in a given culture. Expresses male sexuality.
Feminine: as above, consistent with female sex and expressing female sexuality
Man: an adult person born male with masculine gender.
Woman: an adult person born female with feminine gender.
SEX Non-Conforming (SNC)
General term indicating a person who has a gender at variance with the norm for his/her birth sex. This is often called Gender Non-Conformity (GNC) but this is misleading when the individuals described are completely conforming to their gender, but not to their sex. So SNC is better in this case. However, gays and lesbians are SNC, since their gender behaviour (who they sleep with) is at variance with social expectations for their birth sex, but they are also GNC because they do not conform to the gender they should have according to their sexuality. So, transsexuals are SNC and gays are GNC.
General prefix to describe a person who obviously presents in a gender not consistent with his/her birth sex. This includes crossdressers etc.
The term must be used with caution as it has been adopted by Transtrenders who believe one can be trans while displaying no outward expression of it. This is a contradiction in terms.
Transgender: Vague blanket term used as a political catch-all. Essentially meaningless today, it once meant ‘not quite transsexual’. Again it has been hijacked by Autogynephilic transvestites and by transtrenders.
Trans woman: a male-born woman who passes as such and is Sexually Inverted, that is, exclusively attracted to men.
Trans man: a female-born man who passes as such and is Sexually Inverted, that is, exclusively attracted to women.
A specific term referring to a subset of transgender homosexuals, ie feminine male and masculine female. If MtF, she is is attracted to men exclusively and has been from childhood. She seeks to play the feminine role with her partners and is sexually submissive. Almost exclusively, she desires to be penetrated. She has no sexual interest in women at all. In most ethnicities she tends to be slight, light in build, shorter than average for males, with neotenous features.
These individuals are often almost unfeasibly feminine and will display markedly sex non-conforming behaviour as children. Through adolescence and young adulthood their neoteny persists, but eventually this will be overwhelmed by the effects of testosterone. An MtF transsexual, by definition, appears to be a woman. In most cultures, she will be a remarkably beautiful one, because transsexuals self-select. ‘Passing’ is one of the most important considerations in their decision to transition. She almost certainly takes hormones and may seek other procedures, including surgery, to make her appear more feminine. Most of these are replicated in the inverse, with detail differences, in FtM.
Transsexualism is called, in Blanchard Theory, homosexual transsexualism (HSTS) and the subjects may identify as ‘former transkids’.
Transsexual prevalence is shaped by social tolerance levels. Many are found in Asia, fewer in the West. However the lowered apparent prevalence might be the result of ‘woodworking’ in which HSTS, after transition, change their names and gender markers then live their lives as women. Male transsexuals are closely related to feminine gay ‘men’ (see below).
This states that ‘a person with transition desire (gender dysphoria) will either complete or transition if he or she thinks the benefits of doing so will outweigh the disadvantages.
a cross-dresser; that is, a person who is born one sex but wears clothing etc consistent with the other. These are mostly men. They are not transsexuals. They have a paraphilic condition called Autogynephilia.
Genital Reconstruction Surgery (GRS)
The operation or operations required to turn the external genitalia of one sex into a cosmetic representation of the other.
These are male homosexuals who are more or less feminised (fem gays) or female homosexuals who are masculinised (masc or butch lesbians.)
These individuals have a sexuality that is the inverse of the norm for their sex, so that fem gays have female sexuality and prefer to be penetrated. They adopt feminine roles with their partners. Masc lesbians fantasise about penetrating their female partners and adopt a masculine role with them.
Many male transgender homosexuals are receptive or ‘bottoms’ but learn to enjoy penetrating because it is part of the New Gay Man social ideal. So-called ‘gay tops’ that is, same-sex oriented males who only penetrate are rare, but do exist. Hence the quote ‘100 bottoms looking for a top’, used to characterise gay male culture.
Men who have Sex with Men (MSM):
These are not homosexual and do not enjoy being penetrated. However, they may penetrate gay men for money, because they like anal sex or there are no willing women available.
Note: not all homosexual males like to be penetrated, either because of fear of disease or of the pain. However, they habitually lie about this too, since admitting to enjoying being anally penetrated may incur opprobrium.
Any woman who desires and seeks out women for sex. Note, however, that it is necessary to have been born with XX chromosomes to be a lesbian!
A person openly attracted both to men and women. Rare, but covert bisexuals are probably less so. More common amongst women than men, possibly for socio-cultural reasons. Pseudo-bisexualism is a function of Autogynephilia and is much more common.
Generic terms for trans people
a trans person, usually a trans woman. While some object to the term, others embrace it wholeheartedly. They tend to be the ones with a better sense of humour.
a porn-industry term for a pre-operative trans woman (ie retaining a penis.) Again, some, especially Snowflakes and Western Autogynephiles, reject it, others embrace it. Best to ask.
generic term for an unmasculine male of Asian origin. Nearly all such people, when speaking English, will use the term to describe themselves. Snowflakes and Western profile AGPs often attack its use, ignoring the fact that millions self-identify as such. Ho hum, that’s cultural imperialism for you.
Cis: prefix describing anyone who is not SNC — that is, who is a man or a woman.
Homosexual crossdresser (gay) a homosexual male who dresses as a woman to attract partners and socialise. Typically his cross-dressing is only part-time and he probably does not take hormones. However in the appropriate cultures, this person might become transsexual, especially if ‘passable’ as a woman. The equivalent exists in females too.
Masochistic Emasculation Fetish (MEF).
This may be implicated in Autogynephilia. It was not described as such by Blanchard, but its presence is consistent with observation. AGP subjects may loathe their own masculinity (Moser, Blanchard) to the point that they may seek GRS to remove their external male genitalia. This is consistent with MEF. It is possible that it is identical to non-homosexual gender dysphoria, at least in males and proponents of the theory press this point. On the other hand, it seems less implicated in south-east Asian expressions of AGP, which might mean that it is what gives the Western AGP profile its specific character, rather than being essential to AGP.
Gender Dysphoria or transition desire in milder forms, is caused by a mismatch between sexuality and gender. It exists in three variants:
Natural. This is a heterosexual man’s feeling of discomfort at presenting in public as a woman; the inverse applies to women.
Homosexual. This is the feeling of discomfort felt by feminine gay males and masculine lesbian females at appearing to be masculine and feminine respectively. It is caused by sexual Inversion and in severe cases may lead to Homosexual Transsexualism (HSTS).
Non-homosexual. In males, this is caused by Autogynephilia. In this, a second, pseudo-feminine character is developed as the object of the individual’s erotic desire. This character can become autonomous and will suffer Gender Dysphoria, because she is inhabiting a masculine body. In severe cases the subject may transition, but there is a problem because the male personality still exists, and this will feel Gender Dysphoria as a woman, after transition.
A female form exists, but how it works is not well understood.
Non-existent. This canard suggests that one’s ‘sense of gender’ is something other than sexuality. Proponents of this fallacy describe it as ‘feeling like a woman’ for a trans woman. However, as Mike Bailey pointed out, how would a middle-aged man know what it was like to ‘feel like a woman’? Gender proceeds from sexuality, not airy-fairy notions of ‘identity.’
Another canard, describing the clothes and mannerisms associated with a particular gender, either masculine or feminine. Gender by any other name; a redundant term.
Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression and Identity (SOGIE)
A specious attempt to suggest that sexual orientation (‘whom one wishes to go to bed with’) and gender (‘whom one wishes to go to bed as’) are divorced. They are not. This is a meaningless by-product of hidebound USican attitudes towards sex. It came about because gay activists wished to separate the desire to be penetrated from the fact that this is a female sexual desire. It has since spread and has been adopted by Autogynephilic Transvestites, to justify calling their normal heterosexual desire for women ‘lebianism’. It’s nonsense. Gender and sexuality are two sides of the same coin. And you need to be a woman to be a lesbian.
Perhaps the most complex of all, this condition causes a man to be sexually aroused by the ‘thought or image of himself as a woman’. This is a form of paraphilia or sexual fetish. It comes in a plethora of forms. Central to all, however, is the sexualised attraction to ‘being a woman’, which, in this matter, means ‘being emasculated’.
This is an invasive, self-propagating condition that is usually (but not always) fuelled by masturbation. In some manner, the subject becomes erotically aroused by his own body or self. But he is a heterosexual male, so he is repulsed by masculinity in a sexual partner. As a result, he creates a second, pseudo-feminine character to play the role of his lover.
He then rewards this character, through masturbation, most commonly, but by other means which are not sexual sexualised too. If this is not kept under control the pseudo-feminine persona can take over the host and suppress it. This character may experience intense, debilitating Gender Dysphoria and is likely to believe that transition will cure this.
It won’t. This is for two reasons. The first is that the host male personality, while suppressed, remains present and will now feel intense Gender Dysphoria at appearing as a woman. The second is because Gender is the outward expression of sexuality and these individuals have a misdirected, but otherwise normal, male sexuality. Since the subject remains attracted to women but is presenting as a woman, this causes Gender Dysphoria. The subject will attempt to assuage this through increasing levels of delusion, notably that he ‘is really a lesbian trapped in a man’s body’.
In the Western Autogynephilic profile, the subject may continue to live as a man, with regular ‘dressing’ masturbation sessions. Typically he will have a wardrobe of women’s clothing for this. He may indulge his fetish with other like-minded individuals at masturbatory ‘dressing parties’. In severe cases, a secondary, pseudo-feminine personality is created which after years — possibly decades — can completely overwhelm the host personality and destroy it. This is when these men usually decide to ‘transition’.
These men retain a masculine attraction to women and may attempt to insist to their wives that they are now ‘lesbians’. They predate on women and are particularly dangerous for transsexuals, to whom they may appear as ‘mentors’. However, the slightest deviation from the AGP’s instructions will be met with devastating opposition. On the other hand, we now see AGP males interfering in the debate about young transitioning HSTS on both sides. One side seeks to encourage HSTS transition in order to validate the standard AGP narrative that ‘they were always that way’ and the other seeks to discourage it to ingratiate himself with distressed and confused mothers of adolescent HSTS. This is part of the AGP’s sexualised reward strategy.
Transvestite autogynephilia, in which the subject appears in women’s clothing part or full time, was first described by Ray Blanchard in the 1980s and this work remains the basis of the science. Blanchard’s sample was, on average, middle aged, not at all feminine (rather the opposite) usually married, had children, was attracted to women principally and had no history of homosexual attraction or of SNC in childhood. All, however, had some history of dressing up in women’s clothes to masturbate.
Other AGP Profiles
Blanchard’s AGP profile, however, is not the only one. In Asia, while the Western Profile does appear, it is relatively rare; another form is much more common. This differs from the Western in that: the age of appearance is much lower; subjects typically self-medicate with hormones (usually contraceptives) from their teens; as a result of this they may be strikingly beautiful, tall, lithe women very much of the ‘supermodel’ look; and they are much more likely to be androphilic (attracted to men).
It is not clear whether this profile is completely distinct from the Blanchard or is simply exhibiting cultural influences, notably the attraction to men. It is also possible, as noted above, that MEF is present in the Western profile but absent or nearly so in the southeast Asian one because of cultural traditions that venerate the nuclear family and the high status of women within it, as mothers.
Here, the emasculation fetish that is a central part of AGP is satisfied in ways other than wearing women’s clothing. It may simply come from being called by feminine pronouns or even one of an array of invented ones; by changing one’s name and other people using it; by sexual penetration, or by other means.
It has been noted for decades that a dichotomy exists amongst homosexual men. Some are small, slight, pretty and extremely feminine and others are large, normal weight, and not feminine, rather masculine. The existence of non-transvestite autogynephilia suggests that many if not all of these latter men might be Autogynephiles getting their emasculation fetish satisfied through being anally penetrated.
A proportion of transvestite Autogynephiles exhibit ‘pseudo-bisexualism’ in which they seek to be penetrated by men tfor validation. Is it possible that ‘masculine’ gays are just non-trans Autogynephiles doing the same thing? It would certainly explain a lot about gay culture in the West if this were the case.
Autogynephilia is the most complex and fascinating expression of SNC. Unfortunately, typical Western profile AGPs are arrogant, offensive, bullying and obnoxious. Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner would be an example.
Erotic Target Location Error (ETLE)
In all normative sexualities, the object of erotic desire or interest is another person. Usually, this is a person who is or appears to be of the opposite sex. If the erotic target is the self, an inanimate object, another species, or, in some cases, certain members of the same species, then this target is erroneous and so is called an ETLE. Human society also considers erotic targeting of young individuals to be an ETLE, but how this is dealt with in practice depends on the culture. Usually this is done by putting a legal limit on the lowest age at which sex is permitted. There is little question, however, that true paedophilia, that is, sexual desire for pre-pubescent children, is the result of an ETLE, since there is no possible manner in which this could be a reproductive strategy.
Essentially, ‘crossdreamer’ is another word for an Autogynephilic male transvestite, though in this case, the sexualised reward of the ETLE might all be in the mind, or by interaction on-line.
Transtrenders: The Snowflake Genders
There is a huge number of other ‘gender’ types that have been invented in recent years, but these are all fake. The plethora of ‘genders’ adopted by transtrenders are actually rather moods and social roles than anything that might fairly be described as ‘gender’. The whole set should be seen as a politico-fashion statement, somewhat similar to Punk and Emo, both of which were notable for gender-bending but which were based around music. Transtrender, on the other hand, seems to revolve around social media.
This is predictable if we apply the gender breakdown developed by Prof Don Kulick (an actual scientist) as part of his studies in Brazil. He classified gender in the culture he was observing as being ‘men’ and ‘not-men’ (rather than men and women.) I have observed the same dichotomy in Asia and also in South America.
Transtrender culture deliberately outlaws masculinity, especially white masculinity and instead rewards emasculation, for males. The culture is so emasculated as to only consist of persons conforming to Kulick’s ‘not-men’ categorisation. All of the ‘men’ — powerful, masculine males — have been excluded or emasculated. Transtrender, therefore, is the natural result of feminist attempts to suppress and destroy masculinity and, ultimately, men.
Within this, then, we see just one gender group, ‘not-men’. This group shows huge variation and this is the root cause of the transtrender ‘gender rainbow’. However they are actually all not-men.
Within Identity Politics, the highest status is afforded to lesbian women, especially blacks and other ethnic minorities. In order to fill the gap left by the banished ‘men’ group, some of these women ‘become’ men for social reasons. This puts them at the top of the pecking order. At the same time, real males emasculate themselves to the point of appearing to be women (almost).
I am indebted to the riotously funny http://genderfluidsupport.tumblr.com/gender/ blog for the following ‘Master Gender List’. Its terminal stupidity is perhaps best revealed by the fact that the only two genders that actually do exist, masculine and feminine, appear nowhere on it! The chuckleheads who produced this say:
‘Feel free to mix and match your own prefixes and suffixes to create the identity that best describes you.’
In other words, this nonsense has nothing to do with observable reality at all; it’s just about ‘d feelz’. Perhaps the most priceless piece of undiluted idiocy on this list is the following:
Anongender: a gender that is unknown to both yourself and others
So I’m wondering how one can ‘identify’ as a gender that nobody, including yourself, can identify?
And please, if you meet any adult who ‘identifies as’ a child or ‘a member of another species’ do find a shovel and hit it, hard.
(I am assured that this nonsense is not a hoax or a spoof, much though I wish it were; however, if anyone has evidence that it is, please do contact me.

I am very happy to have found yer comments discussion with Faery Kim on Youtube.
(snip irrelevant verbiage)
As regards sex and sexuality, of which gender is a part, I don’t present arguments. I only present the facts as stated in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, which it is clear you have not read, and the results of my own observations, mainly in Asia but also in Europe and South America. These confirm the following: Ray Blanchard was right in all of his major premises; gender is partly innate, which element is driven by birth sex, but largely sexual and social; there is no such thing as ‘gender identity’; there is no equivalent to AGP in females, so transmen, insofar as they exist, are broadly equivalent to transsexuals (Blanchard HSTS) meaning that they are a class of homosexual women, as transsexuals are a class of homosexual males; that all of these phenomena are subject to huge variation as a result of cultural influence.
I have made comment about the abusive nature of ‘gender neutral’ parenting and against ‘gaslighting’ children into believing they are trans. I also argue that the so-called ‘gender binary’ is an innate and essential part of the human condition and it cannot be dispensed with.
Thank you for informing me as to the etymology of my surname. Gosh I would never have thunk it.
nonchromosomal biological “defining sex characteristics” can be addressed medically, etc.
No. Apart from a tiny number (<1:20000) of CAIS and ADH people, (who are male but are born with vaginas) and other rare intersex conditions, physical sex can easily be determined by birth genitalia. While true transsexuals, that is, highly feminine homosexual males, have a gender that is not in accordance with their sex, this is a result of their sexual desire for men.
Genital Reconstruction Surgery (GRS) is a dangerous practice that provides no benefit. Even true transsexuals would in most case be better to retain their penises and live as women, using testosterone blockers, hormones and other forms of cosmetic surgery to enhance their femininity and support their gender. I know many post-operative transsexuals (again, not transvestite autogynephiles, who are mentally ill) who have undergone this unnecessary procedure and not one has had her life improved by it. Those who have long-term partners would be with those men anyway, and those who are living with their past concealed -- one day it will all be discovered and their lives will be ruined.
GRS exists and remains legal because of widespread failure to understand what Gender non-Conformity (GNC) actually is. There is no such thing as 'gender identity'. Gender is innate for most of us and where it differs from norm, this is because of sex drive. Gender is not a social construct, as the deliberate lie of feminists and New Gay Men would have us think; it is an innate part of being human and has evolutionary roots. In fact, without it, we would probably have gone extinct.
As an Alternative to GRS. How about castration and then hormones. This would improve feminization?
That is basically the rudimentary method used by the hijra and thirunangai of India. It has been practised since at least 3000 BCE. The um candidate works into a religious trance and then, using a razor-sharp knife, removes his own testes and penis with one upward cut. The removal of testes doesn’t feminise but it arrests masculinisation. Estrogen has to be taken to feminise, and without either testosterone or estrogen, the subject may develop osteoporosis. Indian transwomen take various traditional preparations, the nature of which are a religious secret, but I suspect come down to the urine of pregnant animals (see below.) Today they take contraceptive pills which are cheap and effective, especially in the absence of testes.
The first successful cosmetic GRS ops were done I believe in Morocco in the 1950s by a French surgeon, but I would need to check that. At least one was done pre-war but the patient died. (Lily Elbe)
Hormones have been used for at least 2500 years — Scythian transgender women drank distilled pregnant mare’s urine and the Greeks and Romans mentioned this. A powerful feminising agent used today, PreMarIn, is Pregnant Mare urIne, so it would have worked. Amazing, huh?
As a libertarian I think we all own our own bodies and so long as what we do to them harms nobody else, it’s our own business. I do think GRS should be a last resort because of its irreversible nature; and the fact is there are literally millions of pre-op TS out there who still have their dicks and they are fine. But still, it is a choice that should be available.
Thank you for your comment
Hey Rod! I have yet to re-post my comments on your blog as I have been lazy (and it’s been way too warm to stay in the pc room). Rest assured I will get around to it! I keep amassing more info too…
Anyway, I am arguing with some folks on Youtube who seem to think that this is proof that AGP transexuls are just another kind of transexual, because 1) some HSTS transexuals feel sexual arousal when they imagine themselves as women 2) some AGP want to be penetrated by men.
This is the study that apparently ‘takes down’ Blanchard’s typology:
“”Still, the fact remains, that androphilic trans women who according to the theory should not report “autogynephilic fantasies” do so. This should be enough to sink the autogynephilia theory. In addition Veale documents that there is nothing in the data that suggest that suggest that the patterns seen reflect an underlying “essential” difference between the two types.””
I am posting this comment here, as your definitions, especially those regarding the emasculation fetish, seem to explain the behaviour or AGP who are attracted to men.
What say you about the HSTS who are aroused at the idea of being women? When I was perusing r/asktransgender, there was one post from a gay man who said he got a boner when he put on a dress. I would assume that HSTS, and those gay men, who are aroused by the idea of being women, are simply exhibiting paraphilic behaviour because, as we have discussed in the past it is relatively easy for biological males to condition themselves fetishistically.
P.S. I am subbed to your YT channel and will listen to some of your content today!
Crossdreamers is a propaganda site, nothing there is reliable. Veale’s work is specious. He makes no effort to understand the crucial nature of the ETLE, and indeed denies, it, whihch remders his conclusions false — false premise = false conclusions, always.
No ETLE, no AGP, and NOPODY has ever shown that women have this. And if they did, it would have to be autoandrophilia, (which doesn’t have any evidence for existing either.) Even if women do get turned on by their own bodies, so what? So do men, every time they crack one off. The point is, a woman getting hot and bothered because she’s touching herself and thinking she’s a sexy woman, is normal; a man doing the same and thinking he’s a hairy beast is the same; BUT a man doing it AND THINKING WHAT A SEXY WOMAN HE IS, is a person with a fetish called AGP.
The basis of all of this is the ‘real woman’ lie. ALL MtF are male. HSTS just happen to be naturally very feminine while AGPs certainly are not.
I know about the Masochistic Emasculation Fetish notion, it’s the brainchild of one particular AGP, but it does not account for the ETLE, so does not challenge Blanchard. There’s no dounbt that manyAGPs love to be emasculated, but it’s really another expression of AGP, not another condition or a replacement for the theory.
You are in danger of stealing my thunder here. Yes I know about the ‘gay men’ who like to put on women’s clothes and get aroused by crossdressing. They are not actually gay, they are AGP. Gay culture has actually conflated the two forms, exactly as AGP activists would like to see happen for transwomen. This is where the myth of the ‘masculine gay man’ comes from. They’re not gay, they’re AGP, who are into being penetrated so they can have ‘sex as a woman’. ALL gay men are feminine.
Hey Rod, I just found this article and your comments on ThirdWayTrans’ website:
Honestly, the more I learn about AGP, the more confused I get. I have done hours of research and only *barely* scratched the surface. Reading the comment thread on ThirdWayTrans gave me a headache!
I also notice that your ideas regarding AGP and brainsex have evolved over time, as you have learned new information.
It does appear that AGP *can* manifest as a paraphilia and also as an intense desire to be a woman. I like what TWT had to say about some AGP having a non-lustful *attachment* to the idea of being a woman. I believe you added to this by stating that AGP can be a sexual orientation in many cases and not necessarily just a fetish…
Apparently the fact that a percentage of gay men and HSTS can become sexually aroused by the idea of being a woman is supposed to ‘sink’ the entire AGP theory, but can’t it just be a paraphilia in these cases? Both are still biological males, right? So it’s possible that they can condition themselves, through sissy porn or somesuch, to become aroused at the idea of being women…
I DO think that there is a biological cause underlying HSTS transexualism, and that whichever mechanism is responsible for sexual orientation also underlies the ‘feminized’ brains of HSTS transexuals. That in the case of HSTS, the brain feminization in-utero is enough to tip them into transexual territory. I was reading a twitter feed this morning and someone mentioned that it has been observed that in some cases of identical twinning, that one twin will grow up to be an effeminate gay man, and the other a transexual. This is definitely something that I would like to research more.
Also, these two studies are of note, I think:
The cross-sex-shift hypothesis predicts that homosexual men and women will be similar in certain neurobehavioral traits to their opposite-sex counterparts. Accordingly, it predicts that homosexual men should perform in the direction of heterosexual women, and homosexual women in the direction of heterosexual men, on neurocognitive tests that show normative sex differences. We conducted a meta-analysis on the relationship between sexual orientation and cognitive performance, and tested the effects of potential moderating variables separately by sex. A total of 106 samples and 254,231 participants were included. The meta-analysis revealed that homosexual men performed like heterosexual women in both male-favouring (e.g., spatial cognition) and female-favouring (e.g., verbal fluency) cognitive tests, while homosexual women performed like heterosexual men only in male-favouring tests. The magnitude of the sexual orientation difference varied across cognitive domains (larger for spatial abilities). It was also larger in studies comparing exclusive heterosexuals with exclusive homosexuals compared to studies comparing exclusive heterosexuals with non-exclusive homosexuals for both sexes. The results may narrow down potential sites for sexual orientation-related neural differences.
Johnny lives in a small town in the Dominican Republic where he, and others like him, are known as “Guevedoces”, which effectively translates as “penis at twelve”.
Like the other Guevedoces, Johnny was brought up as a girl because he had no visible testes or penis and what appeared to be a vagina. It is only when he approached puberty that his penis grew and testicles descended.
Johnny, once known as Felicita, remembers going to school in a little red dress, though he says he was never happy doing girl things.
A final interesting observation that Imperato-McGinley made was that these boys, despite being brought up as girls, almost all showed strong heterosexual preferences. She concluded in her seminal paper that hormones in the womb matter more than rearing when it comes to your sexual orientation.
Yes, back then I was still buying the social construct of gender and basically the ‘blank slate’ theory. Over the rest of that year I did a huge amount of reading which, along with my experiences in the Philippines, made me realise it was a crock. We can’t ‘do away’ with gender, as I said we could not, but the reason is that it is innate. It’s hardwired. I’ve updated most of the pages here but it takes a while and I could not possibly update the whole internet. All I can do is be honest and say, yes, I have changed my mind about that in the light of new evidence.
Yeah I I’d heard about the Guevedoces, just a few months ago. My question would be ‘whom did they have crushes on between the ages of 6 and puberty’.
The homosexual study is interesting; gay men are feminine and we all know this. It is one of the great lies of the 20th century to suggest that they are masculine. They do a form of theatrical faux masculinity. I’ll add that to my links page.
Veale’s work is BS, Humanities pretending to be science. There is a big difference between exhibiting AGP behaviour and being AGP. I might start calling what happens with HSTS ‘pseudo-AGP’ (joke) I mean, yes, if you fuck an HSTS in front of a mirror, she’ll love you forever. It doesn’t make her AGP. She’s getting off on watching what you’re doing to her. She is not living out an AGP fantasy, she is feeding directly off the experience. There’s no ETLE so there is no AGP. That’s it. Plenty of natal women like this too (I’ve tried) but they don’t have ETLEs either. Your AGP will be trying to shove a dildo in her bum, not your dick, because SHE DOES. No ETLE, no AGP. They just can’t seem to get this. It’s not the outward behaviour that is conclusive, it’s the location of the erotic target.
The twin thing makes compete sense, if they were raised separately, because cultural factors like peer pressure are really important. A slight cultural difference in the society the child is surrounded by in growing up would easily be enough to make that difference. More difficult if they were brought up together. Please post more on that if you find any, it interests me a lot
“”BUT a man doing it AND THINKING WHAT A SEXY WOMAN HE IS, is a person with a fetish called AGP. “”
Precisely. People seem to have difficulty with this concept. As you said in one of your AGP videos, the AGP is turned on by the idea of being the *target*, ie, the woman, when he is in fact a man. When women have sex (or get dressed, or have their periods) they are not aroused by the idea of being a woman, or even a man, when doing these things!
“”I know about the Masochistic Emasculation Fetish notion””
I have been reading up on BDSM and other fetishes, and am noticing a fair amount of overlap with AGP fetishes. Also, there are cult-like groups wherein gay men dress in latex and pretend to be dogs… I am not gong to comment much more on this as I need to research it more (one of my comments on your other blog was in regards to this subject) however I will say that I suspect 1) a clustering of paraphilias in one person 2) in the case of the BDSMers, especially where sadism is involved, that there might be a case of ETLE as the sadist wants to vicariously experience what it’s like to be the victim. Perhaps it’s not ETLE, but something similar?
I also came across some disturbing comments on the paraphialias section of psychforums.com wherein a ‘trans pedo’ described his attraction to children. I immediately thought of Stefonknee Wolscht and his desire to pretend to be a 6yo who is penetrated by an elderly male…(can I just say ewwww)
“You are in danger of stealing my thunder here.”
Never! I have learned so much from you Rod. You are incredibly insightful and not at all arrogant. One of the things that peeves me the most about the POMO asshats and those who would defend AGP is how every word of theirs just drips with condescenscion…
“This is where the myth of the ‘masculine gay man’ comes from. They’re not gay, they’re AGP”
Yep you mentioned this in the very blog post that I am replying to. It actually makes perfect sense now that I think about it, for the very reason that masculine gay men do not conform to the pattern re transexualism and homosexuality that we have been discussing…
1) There are plenty of studies establishing that male and female brains are different. Even amongst primates, males, at a very early age, engage in *very* different behaviours than females. Their play and choice of toys is different.
2) GNC children, who often grow up to be gay, engage in childhood behaviour that is closer to that of the opposite sex than to their own sex. Some of these children grow up to be transexual.
3) GNC children not only behave like the opposite sex, but they *look* like the opposite sex – hence the existence of effeminate gay men and butch lesbians.
I mentioned the Guivedorces because of this sentence: “”She concluded in her seminal paper that hormones in the womb matter more than rearing when it comes to your sexual orientation. “‘
In the case of the Guivedorces, their bodies and their brains match, it’s just that their bodies have to catch up to their brains. They are born with male brains, they engange in typical male play, they are heterosexual (as far as I can tell) and at 12 they develop male genitalia.
If these ‘hormones in the womb’ are behind brain-sex, then what can we conclude about their effect on sexual orientation and gender identity? Bear in mind that I am not saying that HSTS MTF have ‘lady brains’, as I disagree that they are a form of intersex, however, their brains, and even bodies are, to some degree, feminized. They are literally and truly transexual. They have feminized brains and bodies coupled with a very strong male sex drive.
Some idiot tried to argue with me earlier that AGP are transexual because the definition of transexual is to transition! Ok, then otherkin are literally trans-wolf if they get their teeth filed and wear floppy ears.
Here is the twitter thread on sexual orientation and gender identity:
Check out the comments, perhaps the person who made the comment about identical twins can provide a citation. I am not actually on Twitter (or else i would be following you) as I deleted my account during the election. Trump Derangement Syndrome drove me off Twitter. I just couldn’t handle the toxicity. At this point in time I just read select accounts, Rolf Degen’s is a good one, along with yeyoza.
