There is a modern societal-biological anomaly that requires clarification, so I will attempt to do so in the space provided.
That all lady army/society of women lead by Athena many ages ago (I’m summarizing). No men but some really kick-ass fighters, and we ladies often still bear the mark of the Amazon…
(When the girl child was born, her right breast was cauterized to allow a better archery skills while riding a horse. Yay!)
If your breasts are both big, then I doubt you are truly Amazonian.
(Back to our girls…)
As there were no men, other than to use for reproduction, women did form social bonds and physically romantic relationships with other women. To be an Amazon did not mean you naturally wanted a man.
(Oddly enough, the image of Athena was gradually masculinized to promote more men to follow/worship into battle without hesitation.)
Fast forward to modern anomaly…
There is a cultural assumption that a transsexual woman must start out as a gay boy, like so: Boy>gay boy>drag queen> transsexual woman> via nice tidy edges from surgery> viola! WOMAN!
(It’s also suggested that transsexual men start automatically as lesbians.)
In America (and Italy) it seems mostly that “you are kinda queer so you must be a gay man!”
The semantics of word meanings around the world suggest that, although your culture has a word for transpeople it is the same one you use for gay men.
(In America, to say “trans” anything and assuming people go thinking of Jerry Springer screaming queens who are/were really men.)
The biological default always has and always will be female.
-So if you are a transsexual women and you are with a man, you have Somehow YOU ARE CLEVER AND found a loophole towards societies exceptance of hetero-normative in appearance relationships
….BUT if you are with a woman then you are simply a cross-dresser -Both wrong!
This includes the notion, to quote Star Wars: “It’s a trap!” to trick a man into something he’s not a conscious participant.
(I was going to use the phrase “to have your cock and eat it too” but the opportunity didn’t present itself.)
So, the modern Amazon, the transsexual woman, need not be labelled “drag queen” or such just for minds too slow to accept that the more culture has changed, some really great things preserved are ignored.
I’ve always liked girls, they have less hang ups also.
(Most Amazons prefer their sisterhood, truth be told.)
I proudly wear my mark of Athena/Amazon distinction, including my owl perched on my shoulder who is always watchful of bullshit coming my direction.
