Let’s count the AGP landmarks I’ve discussed previously in this man’s story. (thread 🔻)
- Military background
- Crossdressing fetish, developed ~puberty
- Stereotyped expectations for “life as a woman,” other women as extras in his personal movie
The reality is, a “woman” with the size & strength of someone who’s gone through puberty is less likely to be targeted than one who is more easily controlled.
(This could be studied. I know about 5,000 lesbians with sociology degrees who need work.)
This is because AGP is escapism. When you go from CDing to being “female” full-time, you lose your chief coping tool.
He had to turn to other coping mechanisms (drinking) because his CDing had lost its power.
Gender-critical work, done respectfully, can benefit trans ID’d people, too. It can help them understand their pain.
