How Does a Trans Woman Feel About Her Sex?
When say all women, this term also includes trans women. A trans woman’s gender identity is simply her internal perception of being a female. In essence, a trans woman’s gender identity does not define or caveat her real womanliness, it just refers to her journey into womanliness. Some trans women choose to accept their birth assignment and live as a woman, while many others choose to live as a man and sometimes both. In either case, they are trans, but most of them choose to be what is in their minds at the time – a woman.
There is no reason to think that there is something wrong with these women, no matter what they do. Transgendered ( transsexual) women may have had the misfortune of living life as the assigned sex at birth, but their gender expression can change over time. This change in gender expression is often triggered by physical changes, such as a mastectomy, genital surgery or even the use of hormones.
When trans women undergo sex reassignment surgery, it is not uncommon for them to be misdiagnosed with a variety of different illnesses or even transphobic disorders. The fact is, although many in the medical field consider gender to be a psychological issue, many therapists and counselors do not. Rather, they believe that transphobia is an illness. The reason for this is that transmisogyny is not an illness; it is simply a form of mental disorder, which can be treated.
Transgendered ( transsexual) women often feel that they were assigned a male at birth, because their bodies began to present the typical male characteristics. Although they still retain their female mind and spirit, the physical signs are no longer present. This is because their bodies have successfully created the illusion of their original state. When you know that you are trans woman, you will begin to understand that your mind and spirit are female, instead of male.
Understanding your feelings is essential if you are going to overcome transmisogyny. You must first realize that you are, indeed, trans woman. When you come to terms with the truth, you can then move towards accepting and loving trans women, rather than being focused on being angry and embarrassed. Trans women may often have a greater need for love, friendship and acceptance that most cisgendered people do. Unfortunately, many cisgendered people do not know the first thing about trans women, their needs or what they are capable of. Understanding why a trans woman might wish to transition will make it easier for her to accept and love those around her.
There has been an increase in the number of reported hate crimes committed against transwomen. This is often attributed to a misconception about trans women as sexual offenders. This misconception is formed by the often misguided notion that all trans women are sexual offenders. While this can certainly be an excuse to justify violence, trans women are actually just as likely to be murdered as cisgendered women, due to the prejudice that trans women are presumed to commit the same crimes as cisgendered women without exception. If you have been the victim of a hate crime, you should contact your local law enforcement agency for more information on how you can receive compensation for your victimization. You may also want to contact the organization, ” Transgender Legal Defense Association”, for more detailed information on your rights as a trans woman.
Many trans woman take advantage of sex reassignment surgery to alleviate their dysphoria. However, this is often not enough to eliminate their transphobia. Although many people will tell you that their gender is fixed, a trans woman may still have an intense fear of being trapped in the wrong body. She may feel as though everyone is staring at her, and she cannot escape the situation. This is a common reaction when a person has been assigned a new gender, and often goes away once surgery is performed. Unfortunately, a trans woman may continue to experience this trauma for years after receiving a sex reassignment surgery.
The above examples are just a few of the concerns that trans women may face on a daily basis. Because of society’s continued prejudice towards trans women and our unique circumstances, we often suffer from different hardships then the cisgendered population. Fortunately, there are organizations that have tailored legal strategies and support groups for trans women to help alleviate the discomfort and hardships we face. You may want to consider contacting one or more of these organizations to learn more about the resources they provide to empower ourselves and other trans people.
