Parroting your words somewhat, as a woman, I find it "offensive" that you reduce being a woman to just having a vagina. I know I'm a helluva lot more than mine and think who I am as a person to be a little more complex and multi-dimensional than that.

You haven't been paying much attention. Confirmation bias is funny that way.
I would still like for any person who claims to be transgender to tell me now they know what the gender they claim to be feels/thinks/behaves/acts like.
Really, when did anyone describe it? I missed it. Please provide a link.
Perhaps you should tell me and all the other women reading how you think a woman is "supposed to think/feel/behave. I'm not sure we all got the same memo?
While you're at it, why don't you share how a man thinks/feels and behaves. Excuse me if I am making an assumption that you think you are a man.
I'm here to educate and inform and help people become aware of and understand these things. Why are you here?
It sure seems to me just to spread your opinions and negativity and other ignorant anti-trans bullcrap.

And I think you are misguided and confused.
How would I know that? I'm a man.

Thanks for asking! I am indeed a man, but I don't think there is any answer to your question.
I don't believe we are internal genders. I have said before that I believe we are all genderless consciousnesses wrapped in meat shells. (Not very romantic, I know.) I am aware of my 'maleness' because of my anatomy and hormonal responses. Beyond that, I am an individual. My compiled life schemas are totally different from any other man on this planet, and I am comfortable with that.
I do not believe any man on the planet can summarize how a man thinks/feels/behaves.
So I do not believe a woman who thinks she is a man is able to describe how she knows what a man thinks/feels/behaves.
Anyone who thinks they are the wrong gender in their body is overthinking the issue and giving themselves a complex.
That is why I am interested to know how you are so sure you are a woman. You must obviously know how a woman thinks/feels/behaves in order to have convinced yourself.
Based on the life story you have shared, you knew as early as 5 years old(?)
A female that knows she is female
And obviously one that lacks insight and awareness of the world and people around them. I'm sure you have some idea of how you think women think and feel. At least for Ketusko's sake anyway I would hope so.

Then why would you be interested in or listen to anything I had to say? I've been misguided and confused for sixty-one and a half years. Certainly saying more is not worth your bother or my time. Amiright?

I'm sure you have some idea of how you think women think and feel. At least for Ketusko's sake anyway I would hope so.
And again, why do you think anyone else could (summarize how a man thinks/feels/behaves.)?
(S)He wouldn't have to know what a man thinks, (s)he knows how he thinks.
Well thank you for your professional diagnosis, Doctor. I'm sure everyone will go home happy knowing that gender dysphoria comes from "thinking too much".
I feel absolutely no need to play your silly game or to justify or defend myself to you whatsoever. I know how I think and feel and I know how others perceive and react to me.
I have no memories whatsoever of ever thinking of myself as a boy
I have never been confused about my gender or who I am.
At 16 and 17, most people outside of the school environment, like at shops and cafes thought I was a girl and not from what I was wearing or how I looked but because of my personality and who I am.
Broken bones and stitches and having to deal with the cops was good for something, right?
My last year of high school, with long blond hair almost to my waist that had been growing since the 3rd grade
I didn't even look much different but the world suddenly became a much safer place that I fit into much better.

If its a trans male , his brain tells him that his body is not body that a male supposed to have.
So the brain IS telling them they are the wrong sex. Ok. That is what I said.

I am talking about issues related to being who you are as a person. If you are not satisfied and comfortable with that, trying to force other people to be comfortable with something you aren't happy with isn't going to solve things.
