I never knowingly dated any women with extreme body mods...not even large tattoos. Maybe someone had horsehair in their weave, I dunno. Hmm...maybe I should count breast implants...that's pretty extreme. Furry-luv...NO.

After thinking about the prospect of dating a completed transgender woman, I recently had an epiphany. There would be some advantages to dating someone with that orientation. 1. No worries about the monthly menstrual cycle, cramps, PMS, going to the store at midnight to make embarrassing purchases, grodie laundry chores, etc. 2. No prospect of having to deal with menopausal mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, getting prescriptions for hormonal therapy, etc. So, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad deal after all?

"that's good--pointing is very rude"

>>>Depends upon what you're pointing with.

Does a transwoman think like a man does? that could be a selling point

Do you really think calling me a terf is going to hurt my feelings?

1) I am not a radical feminist, I'm a socialist feminist, any feminist or non feminist can be gender critical.

2) You are essentially attempting to slur women who understand that anatomy is what makes them female. Do you really think that is offensive?

This is pretty simple:
Would you believe that emulating stereotypes about black people can transform a white person into a black person?
I bet you don't. And we ALL know why: because you understand its first and foremost a biological phenotype one is born with. But you won't think this of women, when the sexes have far more differences than the races?!?! You also would understand that being black is a matter of social class (being black in america has a way different experience than being black in Guyana). So you would never say a white american could ever understand the totality of the black american experience, but you will say this of males becoming women?!?

Seems to me you fail to see women as either a phenotype OR a social class. Because there is no way in hell you would be put up with a white person appropriating your class and phenotype, but you think its just fine for men of any color to do this to women. You are the exclusionary here, not me. You exclude women as human beings born with ova, instead you see them as a mere collection of stereotypes which is why you think any male can become one. The real question is WHY you feel this way.

Why is race brought into this? And is an albino black person any less a black person because they are white and have no melanin in their skin? And what about young children that say they are the other gender? A 4 or 5 year old boy, for example, saying he's a girl and wants to be treated as a girl and dress like a girl because he IS a girl (in his/her mind)? It's not like someone turns 35 and all of a sudden decides to change gender because they are bored and need something exciting in their life. This is not a new phenomenon . This is finally out F the closet like gay/lesbian was 25 years ago. There have been LGTBQ around for eons. It ain't new.

I'm a woman, I don't feel disrespected or out of sorts because Jenner is a woman. I don't feel my gender is under attack. This effects me in no way. And im glad it's not me as its way better t be born "normal" in this world of hate and closed minds.

There was an intersting documentary on PBS last night about what happens at a specific time to an embryo in utero. Very interesting. They talked about this topic and how surges of testosterone have to hit at the critical time. They discussed albinos, transgendered, kids with cleft lips/palates and a number of other things where everything has to happen at the time or....

The body and mind are very interesting and not finite.

Are there actually sane people that are offended by this? I'm talking about people capable of normal, independent thought that aren't offended and triggered by everything.

I'm taking a course in gender differences. Interesting stuff.

The difference in length between a mans ring finger and index finger (2D:4D ratio. 2nd/4th digit) are related to the amount of testosterone he produces. The greater the difference, the greater the testosterone.

A doctor was able to predict the fastest runner on a track team based on these ratios.


Previous research has found that this "2D:4D" ratio — the ratio of the ­length of the second digit (the index finger) to that of the fourth digit (the ring finger) — reveals the amount of male hormones, mainly testosterone, a person is exposed to in the womb. The more testosterone, the longer the ring finger grows.

And studies have also linked this ratio to a host of other qualities.

Penis size

A smaller 2D:4D ratio has been linked to a longer stretched penis size, according to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Andrology.

The study involved 144 volunteers ages 20 and older who were undergoing urological surgery. While the men were anesthetized, researchers measured the lengths of the men's fingers and penises (both flaccid and stretched, which is linked to the erect penis size).

The shorter the index finger relative to the ring finger, the longer the stretched penis was — likely a result of testosterone exposure in the womb, the researchers said,

Facial attractiveness

Men who have a shorter index finger than ring finger may also have more handsome faces, suggests a 2011 study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

The amount of testosterone a baby is exposed to before birth can affect how the individual's face develops, and how attractive that face is, the researchers said.

Previous research suggests that women prefer men with masculine, caveman like faces. In other words, women are traditionally more attracted to men who have relatively short, scrunched upper faces, as found in Will Smith and Brad Pitt.


I wonder if I get my ring finger lengthened, that I'll enjoy the perks mentioned above??

A male to female post op transsexual discussed the hurdles she faced trying to get the surgery, and how much she was rejected by her friends after completing the transition.

The legal hurdles, such as changing the birth certificate from male to female, were huge.

I joke about these folks but I in no way look down on them. Everybody deserves to be accepted and loved by another :)

Not weed my lady. White whine...

I'm not fast and I have a stubby so my 2D:4D ratio is accurate.

vvvvv

When you get a hold of this, you'll think your hand shrunk.

I was circumcised by a...band-saw!
