Re: TIM wants to transition but wouldn't want to be a "frumpy old woman". Other TIMs sympathize and suggest transitioning now and then just detransitioning back later. They don't even want to be women, they just want to be porn dolls.
Considering MtF’s are almost never attractive wouldn’t it just be better to live as the guy you are and work on yourself and make yourself “hot”. They don’t realise they’ll never be hot women. They’ll never be women. They will never ever ever look like an anime character - no one does - not even those cosplayers who put circle lenses in and do all the makeup etc. Why don’t these men see r/transpassing is just men in clothes not made for their broad body shapes, in makeup that’s all the wrong shades and colours (ooh hot pink lipstick will go with my green dress!!1!), with balding heads and cheap wigs and the obvious masculine faces?
Do they really think the people on there are passing goals? Because that’s all you’re going to look like! Show me a MtF who looks like an anime character.
Yep. The few on there who end up looking somewhat nice (not passing, mind you, but nice-looking) were already rather beautiful men with fine features who then had FFS on top of it.
But I think a lot of the others see those before and afters and then somehow think that hormones will somehow do that for them, too.
I mean there's nothing wrong with looking like an obvious dude in a dress. A regular guy can look good in the right women's clothes and subtle makeup. But that would never be validating enough for most TIMs. Compare the top posts at r/crossdressing to r/transpassing. The CDs look better and happier, no contest.
