Why do transwomen give themselves pornstar-sounding names? After the Women's March, these dudes plagued social media with all their whining about this or that and something that stood out to me was that all those names in those tweets sounded like pornstars. Why do you think that is?
It’s because autogynephilia isn’t just a man gaining sexual satisfaction from seeing/picturing himself as a woman. It’s about being a sexy, young woman - like the ones in the porn they’re addicted to. That’s why they choose porn-y names. Some like to choose names from anime or video games. The older ones also like to choose names that are common among young women rather than something age appropriate.
Why did Brucey boy pick the name Caitlyn? Because it made him feel young and sexy like his daughters who all have names with the same k/hard c phoneme. If he’d chosen an age appropriate name, he’d be a Barbara or a Meredith. But that wouldn’t scratch the autogynephilia itch.
Really, the way they choose to name and dress themselves really betrays the fact that their entire self presentation “as a woman” is based around female stereotypes, including tropes from their favorite media.
