Trannymaxxing Case studies
Remy is another former incel who has corresponded online with one of the writers at Incel Wiki. As Remy has asked to remain unidentified, we will avoid excerpting Remy's texts directly. Nonetheless, it will be paraphrased closely enough that it retains its original meaning
(interviewer) Are you involuntarily celibate?
(Remy) Not now no. I lived as a cishet male incel up to the age of 27. I felt deincelizing was an uphill battle I wasn't going to win. As such, I assumed my feminine facial features would make me passable as a woman if I transitioned. I haven't been incel since becoming a woman.
(interviewer) How did you escape inceldom?
(Remy) Well ... I always had this inclination that women had it much easier in the dating scene. Having transitioned to being a woman, I realized that my previous inclinations were correct.
(interviewer) Are you still attracted to women?
(Remy) Post-transition I have dated both men and women but lean more towards androphilia. Since I have undergone treatment in order to acquire the physical characteristics of a woman, I feel my body is designed to accommodate a male. However, even during the waning years of me being a male, gynophilic attraction began to decline due to the incessant amount of romantic rejections from women I had gone through.
(interviewer) Was inceldom the main reason you transitioned?
(Remy) Yes. During my teens, the thought of transitioning didn't even occur to me. I felt totally comfortable being male. But sex and intimacy were important to me. I genuinely felt undateable as a man and loneliness can make some people like myself take drastic measures.
(interviewer) Do you know anyone else who went through the incel-to-transgender pipeline?
(Remy) No. I don't personally know anyone else who went through the incel-to-trans pipeline besides myself.
(interviewer) What does trannymaxxing mean?
(Remy) It basically means to do what I did. To transition in the hope of entering a romantic relationship afterwards.
(interviewer) Were you ever hesitant to go through with surgery?
(Remy) No. I was already pretty short, and had quite a feminine face, so I felt the transition wouldn't be so hard anyway. I also knew for a fact my life would improve, and it did.
Remy's situation seems a bit different to Leslie. Whereas Leslie transitioned because they eventually developed gender dysphoria, Remy doesn't seem to have had gender dysphoria. Leslie appeared to feel exceedingly uncomfortable at the fact that she had male genitalia. On the other hand, Remy does not seem to have.
