Don’t Mention the A-Word! (Autogynephilia)

Don’t Mention the A-Word! (Autogynephilia) By Steve Sailer.

As I may have mentioned once or twice over the last two decades, many of the most prominent ex-men who announce they are now women are heterosexual men, often in highly masculine fields like the military or computers, who suffer from a sex fetish that was named “autogynephilia” by U. of Toronto professor of psychiatry Ray Blanchard, who is a major heavyweight academic in his specialty.

But you are not supposed to cite the scientific literature on autogynephilia because it enrages the ex-men and they are holy. So they get to shut down public awareness of this highly relevant fact. Thus the New York Times has only mentioned “Autogynephilia” three times since its first mention in 2010, and not at all in the 2020s, despite running a vast number of articles on transgenderism.

From the New York Times news section today, an example of the NYT being aghast that anybody knows about autogynephilia, and can’t bring itself to even print the A Word …

The article is mostly about how those horrible Republicans are focusing attention on FEW examples of individuals who go through “gender transition care” and then come to regret it. Remember, this is a tiny, tiny number, unlike, say, the myriads of unarmed black men gunned down by white cops due to racism.

Autogynephilia is where a male is sexually aroused by the fantasy of being a woman (by Louise Perry):

Ray Blanchard is an adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto who specialises in the study of human sexuality, with a particular focus on sexual orientation, paraphilias, and gender identity disorders. In the 1980s and 1990s he developed a theory around the causes of gender dysphoria in natal males that became known as ‘Blanchard’s transsexualism typology’. This typology—which continues to attract a great deal of controversy—categorizes trans women (that is, natal males who identify as women) into two discrete groups.

The first group is composed of ‘androphilic’ (sometimes termed ‘homosexual’) trans women, who are exclusively sexually attracted to men and are markedly feminine in behaviour and appearance from a young age. They typically begin the process of medical transition before the age of 30.

The second group are motivated to transition as a result of what Blanchard termed ‘autogynephilia’: a sexual orientation defined by sexual arousal at the thought or image of oneself as a woman. Autogynephiles are typically sexually attracted to women, although they may also identify as asexual or bisexual. They are more likely to transition later in life and to have been conventionally masculine in presentation up until that point.

Well they would, wouldn’t they:

Although Blanchard’s typology is supported by a wide range of sexologists and other researchers, it is strongly rejected by most trans activists who dispute the existence of autogynephilia.

Forbidden knowledge is always the most interesting.
