For the sake of p.c. diplomacy no one wants to remark on the benefits--yes, the benefits---the loot, the goodies, the cookies, the booty, the general all-around perks of being an attractive transgender woman in society. While I personally commemorate males who do elect to undergo such an emotionally trying commitment, not totally unlike my own as a zeta male and MGTOW, despite societal norms of sexual behavior, I've decided to look at the less psychological and more social incentives to part ways with their pound of flesh: the societal cookies given involuntarily to every single plucky, comely dame who used to dangle.
For a start, men are systemically penalized for their genitals. It's dubbed every disparaging adjective under the sun, relentlessly, endlessly: it's too droopy, too shrimpy, too skinny, too soft, too hard--it leans right, it leans left: and, you know, it's much more sexually fetching when it's fleeced and missing a foreskin, boys. Said the Christian majority.
Whereas a women's genitals no matter how aesthetically unsettling or misshapen are almost completely immune to any popular derision. The very concept of cracking wise at a woman's rose-colored face hugger* is never on the table. Maintenance wise a penis is more hygienically user friendly, yes; and, hell, it's more user friendly sexually, capable of orgasm with far less stimuli: but one advantage a woman's genitals afford them is very simple...the pressures of girth aren't even possible. The standards for a vagina's visual appeal are significantly more lax. Obviously women self impose higher standards regarding the rest of their sex appeal, but that's another story.
I'm just saying it's not enough when it's skinned, big and rigid as the stick up the pope's ass, men still have to deal with snarks that our bits and pieces are still inherently ugly...it only comes in one stock, ladies. You can change the color of the car, you can put the hood up or take it down, but you can't change the model, understand? With so much derogation against the very sexual organs of men, is it any wonder some of them are raised disgusted and disenchanted by their sexuality? That they might opt to assume the physical characteristics of a more socially glorified gender? Obviously transgender women are the by-product of a genetic phenomenon that is perfectly human and healthy. Even though it's only now, in a more genteel juncture in human history, finding purchase as another element of human sexuality. I would never relegate transsexuality simply to self hate or sexual frustration; but conversely I can't deny the relief from that burden transsexuality provides.* Just to name one perk for putting down a prick and picking up a clit.
Another reason is simple...women are loved automatically. Even if it is a cursory or a perfunctory appreciation...it's still nicer to be liked for just being alive then when you're serving or risking your life for someone else. Again, it's not an incentive necessarily to be transgendered---the process is expensive and psychologically grueling---but, to be fair, there probably is something wonderful about crying and having people bother to ask what's wrong instead of demanding you simply pick your dick up and get back to work. Having half the human populace scramble its jets for you when someone calls you a name is probably nice, too. Also not having to pay for your place at a table for two; and being able to slam the door in some schmuck's face at the end of the night--and doing it all without a menstrual cycle to answer to, sounds like a lifestyle not entirely without appeal. I'm just saying. To say transgender women aren't catching rays off the almighty vagaygay's nimbus of social deification would be disingenuous. To say that there are some societal perks to being a woman that a former man would be painfully aware of and might, if so inclined, exploit or just enjoy...again that would be a lie. To say that society wouldn't sexualize his decision and the resulting physical hallmarks thereof would require blinders at the check out line of any given convenient store; because to say that would be to ignore the majority of film, television and literature throughout history: because at a glance, the world can't see the sum of a transgendered woman's parts, just her parts. A firemen will prioritize her over a man's safety. In a hostage crisis, she will go with the other women and children. And in the case of a sinking ship she will be a mile away before the cellos are done playing.
Of course, (I'll say it once, I'll say it again) I'm not saying that every man swapping his ball bag for a snatch is doing it out of the express lust for swag and societal adulation and safety...even if that adulation and safety is mostly because society merely thinks he's a woman; and not in the personal identity sense; but in the double x chromosome kind of way: which I'm sure doesn't bother her much given, well, ideally people shouldn't see her as a man. Just a woman; and some people, lamentably, can't handle the transition as well as others. To some it's societal sacrilege, because a transgendered women is enjoying all the cookies of having one without...actually having one for realsies: this isn't a barren woman, this is a woman completely without a womb. The only thing that deifies women sexually is their plumbing, take that away and a woman is basically no more special than a man. Of course, women have always asserted the identity of a woman regardless of her fertility, as have men; but a transgendered woman...that's a woman that was never going to bear a child: this conflicts with millennia of social programming. Society bristles at these individuals because of the precedent they set: that men can cheat the system by wearing a skirt and a pair of plastic mammories to work. Obviously this is a crude slant by the social psyche about a truly brave life decision but I can't say as a Christian priest I didn't see it observed on a subtextual level. Especially among the zealous. The Christian majority still sees transgendered people as depraved beyond words.
To a point I think some men do indulge in cross dressing and transgender behavior--not the transformation, the behavior--because they've been ingrained with a systemic disdain for their sexuality. Ergo, to be objectified they simply must assume the guise or at least affectations of a woman. Men even when sexualized are still eroticized by their agency, by their capacity to serve others: a woman, however, is eroticized for her gender at the end of the day; and to a point this has everything to do with gynocentrism and its go-to codes of male behavior. You see, for a man merely to be objectified, to be seen as a sexually desirable object alone, eroticized not for his utility but rather his sheer nature as a man, was to prize his gendered appeal more than his societal role. This wasn't and still isn't acceptable to many men and women. Men cannot be seen solely as objects, to be protected and provided for, to be admired simply for being male. Because masculinity is test-proven and female approved. Is it any wonder why a man would covet the sexual traits of women? To some it's the only way to be wanted for what they are not who they are.
I repeat that transgendered women come in all shapes and sizes and from graphically different walks of life. Many don't discover their true identity until middle aged and married. Some are as young as 12 when they're first exposed to hormone therapy let alone surgery. The youngest transgendered woman in the world (German) was required to be at least 16 before the definitive medical procedures could be undergone. It's always brutal reconciling one's self with their sexuality in a puritanical society that still principally denies that sexual preference is subject to the individual. That barring abuse there is no such thing as "immoral" erotic stimulation. There's stimulation more tastefully presented, but that's of course subject to self awareness and the rule of guilty pleasures. Transgendered women still face alienation for simply satisfying their personal identity and their inherent and personal sexual diets. It is a tasking alteration in life style that comes with causalities and consequences. And a monetarily costly one to boot. Which means many who rightly deserve to be transformed cannot be so.
Still, to the single attractive post-op tranny working a partly unbuttoned blouse and pencil skirt that snaps every curve, there are obvious perks to being noticed simply for entering the room; and not as a potential threat, but as a welcomed element, an honored guest. There's giddy exhilaration to be sure when men jockey for her attention and approval, an anxious electricity. She is the recipient of a love by men and women that simply was impossible as a male: she has gained the capacity, the perceived birth right, to simply stand next to a woman without being seen as an object of ridicule and suspicion. Simply for the bits that once swung between her knees--her transformation means not being loathed for being different than a woman, for not being held under trial by all men wanting to throw her under the bus: it's social glorification for simply being herself, a woman. Give or take a few years confusion, some therapy, some therapy involving hormones and a surgery or three. I don't assume anybody would pursue transsexuality solely for the cookies of womanhood, but, I can't deny they wouldn't be attainable with womanhood once achieved.
*From 'Alien' for those who think I'm talking about sitting on someone's face or getting sixty-nined.
*Of course, I realize that some trannies elect to retain their sexual organs natural but many remove them in commitment to the gender swap. Nor am I suggesting that transgendered women aren't burdened with the reality of their transformation regardless of their appearance or personal identification: but I also acknowledge that the world can't automatically see their y chromosome and penalize them for it; and that a transgendered woman's genetic identity is her secret to keep.
