The autogynephiles I met always seemed to hate women in an envious sort of way. They then justified their mistreatment of women as "equality," since they claim to be women too on the inside.

I met several autogynephiles in my personal life who fetishized and idolized the idea of being humiliated like women, and the idea of being sexually violated was a big aspect of their "feminine gender identity". By defining that desire as part of "being a woman," it becomes clear what sort of men they are. I would never trust a man who thinks that women exist to be treated like that.

Talking with them is a head trip, because if you say "wait, no, that's not what being a woman is like at all!", they turn around and suggest maybe you're a man or nonbinary if you don't agree. While I hope that some have a bit more self-awareness and aren't like that, the most abusive people I have ever met have all been sexist autogynephiles.

Ah yes, "an open mouth, an expectant asshole, blank, blank eyes".

This raises the question of what's "abusive" or "dangerous" and how. For example I've read about men who transitioned after feeling envious of their female partners for being pregnant. I'd imagine having a dad who's jealous of mom on the basis of her fundamental biology can't not be harmful, in no way can that not affect how the parents parent the child and how the father relates to the kid, but I also don't know the dynamics involved. Maybe the kid has two moms and that's that, but under the circumstances I kind of doubt it. I'm particularly worried for that kid on all sorts of levels if she's female.

I can't imagine finding pregnant me erotic, what with my constant farting, hemorrhoids, and shoving my face full of food all day. My husband thought it was cute, but I was carrying his child. These people are so bizarre.
