This theory (about anime) leaves unexplained FtM transgender people. I want to say, that they are no different: it's anime, particullary yaoi, which is the cause. This link is an illustration: https://www.reddit.com/r/GenderCritical ... ns_trends/
It's anime.

I've seen women and girls alike get so morbidly obsessed with yaoi that they can't bloody conceive love and romance with a female person at all. This probably helped fuel the depression and romantisexual stifling of my now-ex best friend, who almost decided she was trans because of it.
It's cute guys, who love each other, who twists the mind of innocent girl to the point, when the girl start to identify with them. There are even two types of FtM people -- one is lesbians, who found it easier to be a straight men, and AAP paraphilicas, who just get off on their fantasies -- the mirror of Blanchard theory.

It's all based on idea, that there is one single factor, which corrupts otherwise normal man or woman, and all attempts of building such theories grows from desire to find and, if possible, eliminate this factor. To make the gender binary great again. In this case, it's all about cute girls and boys from anime.

I think that a lot of crossdreamers in childhood  are shy sensitive girly boys who want to be like another boys, but they feel on subconcious level  that they are not like them and supressed feelings are  expressed in the subtle ways like dreams, fantasies, etc. We can compare this situation with  situation of females who want to be strong and independent in social life, nevertheless their desire to be feminine can  be expressed in fantasies about rape.

Great find, Barbara. I am sharing this with girfag and yaoi-fan friends, to see if I can get some feedback.

Testing, testing, 1,2,3
(Didn't want to post here anymore......but......I see "clods" in reference to girlfags, I presume.  Ehhhhh.....do elaborate more, oreb. We may be sharing the same sentiments, like "why would a girl play around in a boys' club as opposed to a girls' club.......hhhhmmmmmmm)

It was the people in GenderCritical I was referring to. I don't shit on high-density marriage material demographics just like that. What were you thinking?
I don't know what I'm saying. I just wanted to make whatever joke.

It doesn't have to be limited to GenderCritical.  The experiences of MTFs and MTFs are very different.  It's why they have their own communities, thus still proving that there's a biological binary. 🙄  It's very rare to have someone cross into a gender divide and last........somewhat.
