[–] MaterialReality No “transition” 5 points Edited

You are not "MtF", you cannot not "transition" from your male sex to the female sex regardless of how you mutilate your body, what you don or what ideology you parrot and take part in. "Cis" holds no credibility, you are a girl or woman or you are a boy or man if your sex is female or male, respectively, and the latter of each sex will apply to you if you are an adult. "TERF" holds no credibility because it is by definition incorrect; radical feminists do not exclude "trans"-identified girls and women from their feminism. Not even elaborating on how this term is used as a slur for people, primarily women, whether they are radical feminists or not.

It is unfair to say you, a male, are a woman because you are not. You are who you are: men. Women are adult human females. Boys and men on opposite-sex hormones do not experience menstrual symptoms because you do not have female anatomy nor a menstrual cycle no matter how you alter your body. A woman whose anorexia nervosa is so severe she is experiencing amenorrhea is a woman, as is a woman that experiences secondary amenorrhea because she is pregnant.

Also, "I just want to be a normal girl... insecurity" -- I mean, it's all creepy, but wow. And, yes, you do not have to suffer to be a woman because suffering does not make you a woman, being born female and growing up to be an adult does. Exposing your thought that womanhood is defined by how much women have suffered, grisly.

*Edited for grammar

**Edited to add my commentary on “Plus being a… stripes”, no. You do not face challenges because you are a “trans”-identified man, you face it because you are male and don’t adhere to male sex roles, hold fetishes, are a sex offender, etc (typically a myriad of reasons). As for the stripes part, girls and women do NOT “earn [our] stripes”, we do not become more of a girl, woman, or more female the more we suffer so you certainly cannot become any of those as a boy or man.
