This seems to be a thing. I wrote about it a bit here but very interested to hear other women's experiences, observations, and analysis of what's going on here.

Good question. My impression was that the earliest TIPs were mainly gay men, but then they were overtaken by AGPs. All the TIPs I've met in the last few decades were exclusively interested in dating women, so AGPs and former lesbian TIFs. Now I'm reading about all these "gay trans man" TIFs and it really makes no sense to me. My only guess is that they have similar motivations as AGPs. Instead of trying to escape homophobia, both seem to be reacting to our porn saturated culture that objectifies women. AGPs develop a fetish where they want to be similarly objectified, and TIFs are trying to escape it. Many seem to start off obsessed with MLM anime stuff, they see male homosexual relationships as the only egalitarian option for dating men.
