Brazilian transsexuals, males who present as often highly desirable women, have become a well-known phenomenon. They accept themselves as submissive homosexuals and call themselves travestis.
Their cultural understanding of the nature of homosexual sex means that they have thus rescinded, effectively, their status as ‘men’. They have become part of an intermediary class of ‘not-men’ who are enabled to leave go their masculine identities to adopt feminine ones. However the majority believe that they can never be complete women, and that those Brazilian transsexuals who think they can, are suffering from delusions to the point of having a screw loose.
I wrote this piece while I was researching The Warm Pink Jelly Express Train, which is about the lives of Brazilian Transsexuals.
