For example. I am a woman biologically. Yet I don't feel like I 'AM a woman', I feel like I just 'happen to be a woman'.
I feel the same way PQ.
Oh, I like it when I feel that I am attractive, either through the clothes I'm wearing, my makeup, hair, my physique, but I it's not because I feel like it's just because I'm a woman.
If I was a man, I would still like to feel I was attractive, which would be expressed in my clothes, physique, hair, etc.
Anything I could say about how I would like to preceive myself would apply equally if I was male or female....just expressed in different ways.
dj has a penis, and he likes it that way.
I have a vagina, but it's really no big deal.
I can't speak to feeling like a woman because of the maternal thing, since I've never wanted children, and have never felt any urge to snuggle any baby, or any of that stuff I'm supposed to want to do with them.
Oh, I've asked to hold a baby of a friend or relative, and I wanted to. If I had to be totally honest, I would do it with the curiosity if I had the skills needed to hold one. Well, I do, so that's settled.
heh...once my sisters then baby started fussing when my ex-husband was holding her, and he obviously did not know what to do about that. So I took the baby and started doing what millions of women do every day. That, rocking, kinda slow dancing step, swaying side to side at the same time. Like them, I didn't have to be shown how to do that, I just knew.....but it didn't make me feel like I was a woman as opposed to a man. I think the baby responded to me as a feminine figure by my moves, but it wasn't like "ooooohhhh...a baby...."
It was more like "when I do this she stops fussing"
Not saying men can't feel that "oooooohhhhh....a baby....." I just don't.
My brain works just as well as any man, maybe differently, but I don't care about that, it works.
