In essence, what exactly distinguishes the cross-dressing autogynephile from the “real transwoman”? I would really like to know.
Perhaps the sexual aspect? Some trans woman may not get sexual gratification from living as women, and I would consider that a notable difference.
But, then again, if a cross-dresser and/or autogynephile “identifies” as a woman, we’d have to consider him to be one, despite the sexual gratification he might get from it.
actual sex/body dysphoria.
That’s the flaw in identity politics. Cross dressing autogynephiles would be mortified at the thought of getting their old man lopped off whilst those with sex dysphoria tend tp see it as the embodiment of masculinity and want rid of it.
