Not Just Pathetic. Empathetic.

About me:

I'm not a betting woman but if I was I'd bet that you write me. Here's why, three simple reasons:

1. I can cook anything.
2. I'm really open minded.
3. I spent four years of my life as a man. Not a real man but living as a man so that I could really understand the male point of view on things. I cut my hair short and called myself a boys name. Peeing standing up is hard when you lack the equipment! That's the only thing I used an artificial penis for. No sex. I promise!

My friends say I'm empathetic, but I really brought it to a whole new level. I did it because I want a guy who will identify with me in the same way, mentally. I know how you feel and what you go through and I just want a guy who understands that. I'm all out in the open. Why can't you be the same? I've tried to understand you!!! That makes me no monster!

  1. There's a bit more to us than upright urination.

    Not much more, admittedly, but still.

  3. Yes but did you try to date women when you were pretending to be a man and would you be up to doing it again?

  4. "I've tried to understand you!!! That makes me no monster!"

    No, but spending 4 years with an artificial penis and calling you by a boys name does. Case closed

  7. I gotta stand up for transgender folks, here. Just because their lifestyle makes right-wingers twitch does not mean the people living it are somehow inferior. There's nothing wrong with living as a gender you weren't born as.

    Understanding the opposite sex is a stupid reason to do so, though. If that's really what she was doing, this woman is an idiot.

    1. Understanding how people *treat* folks of a different gender, however, might be a quite good reason. If have wanted to meet this woman if it weren't for that awful last paragraph.

    . . . yeah, that comment was what provoked my previous defensive post.

  10. I gotta agree with Metaleaf, Gnome, and Mediator on this one. Let's not be haters.

    And with Jared, but that's off topic.

  11. Sorry, a moment of temporary insanity there- I forgot we're a community of trolls on the internet, and we drink our coffe with three cubes of hate each morning.

  13. Norah Vincent reference FTW. By the way, her second book was terrible. Couldn't make it more than a few pages.

    As a certified LGBT ally, I'm all for transgendered people. However, her reason for living as the opposite gender makes me wonder if there wasn't something more going on.

  14. Just so that it's clear; I am not dissing transgender people in general. I am saying if you spend 4 year of your life as a transgender, not because you feel "trapped" in your body or feel you should be someone else, but because you seek to UNDERSTAND the other sex, you're a freak.

  15. ^And yet you couldn't get through that speech without deciding to use unnecessarily hateful terms. I don't believe you.

  17. I don't mind, I'm an avid reader. And belligerent arguments are quite fun to read and mock.

  18. Freak is not a unnecessarily hateful term. It was (and is) an apt description of a person willing to dedicate 4 years of their lives to acting like a different gender just to understand it better.

  19. ^Only if you believe that story, which I don't. I find it much more likely that she was gender-confused and tried out being a man for a while.

    Decided it wasn't for her, changed back, then instead of trying to hide her past, came up with a story to try and pass it off as a social experiment.
