Hard Work

Being a woman is hard work.

Being a man being a woman is hard work, too... maybe even harder than a woman being a woman.

Women have a head start with regards to looking like a woman. Their prep time is nothing compared to my prep time. If I was a man being a woman 24/7, my prep time would not be as bad, but it still would be worse than a real woman's prep time.

There's the hair. My prep involves removing a lot and adding not so much. And even a close shave with a new razor still finds me smearing on foundation to camouflage my face.

There's the body. How many real women have to squeeze into a girdle and long-line bra to achieve some semblance of a female body? If I want a figure that is at all feminine, I need all that equipment and then there's the matter of hiding some equipment, too.

And there is no equipment that will reduce my Amazonian 6'2" to a Venusian 5'7". Yeah, I know if I didn't wear high heels that might help, but would it? At 6'2", I am taller than 99% of the female population, so what difference will another 3 or 4 inches make (other than make me feel less gorgeous)!

Being a man being a woman is definitely hard work, but I would not give it up for anything! As Oscar Hammerstein II once wrote, "I enjoy being a girl."

  1. There are many trans women who consider themselves to be "real women." Better terms for what you are trying to say are "cis woman" or "natal-born woman."

    It's obvious that you consider yourself a man being a woman (at times, and maybe with a desire to be so 24/7). That's fine with me, but that's not how I see myself. I never was a real man, even if my body may have indicated as such, but I was certainly born to grow into being a woman. In that sense, I am real.

    I was challenged once by another trans woman who asked how I could be a real woman (or even feel myself to be) because my hair, breasts, nails, etc. were all fake. Those things do not necessarily define a real woman, but they don't necessarily make a woman fake, either - no matter what her assigned-at-birth gender was.

    1. Obviously, you don't know me, so please keep your comments about who I am to yourself.

    2. You wrote, "Being a man being a woman is definitely hard work, but I would not give it up for anything!" I meant no offense. I was merely pointing out that those of us under the trans umbrella can see ourselves in different ways, and that some may not appreciate the comparison being made by saying "real woman." I'm not a snowflake, nor am I some troll. I wasn't pointing it out because I was terribly hurt by it, nor was I attacking you.
