Woman lives as a man for 18 months to see what it's like
A couple years old but pretty interesting. Some lesbian goes incognito as a man to infiltrate male circles and see what men are really like when women are not around. She completely changed her opinion on men concluding:

Quote:"Men are suffering. They have different problems than women have, but they don't have it better," she said. "They need our sympathy. They need our love, and maybe they need each other more than anything else. They need to be together. it took experiencing life as a man for her to appreciate being a woman. I really like being a woman. I like it more now because I think it's more of a privilege."

Seriously speakeasy - you've been around since 2008 and have 9000 posts here but haven't seen this posted the previous 6 times?!

I read Self Made Man early last year. Very interesting read.

I wonder who the men's group she infiltrated was. I have my theories.

If we're going to revive this topic, we may as well use this thread to do it since now it has all of the old links.

Norah Vincent's book "Self-Made Man" is now a decade old. Ten years ago -- almost to the day (Jan. 25, 2006) -- she was interviewed on NPR. I remember listening to this interview and think it's worth hearing again.

If anyone wants to hear it, go to this link. I can't get their player to work, but you can download the MP3 pretty quickly and listen to that.

I wonder if some men who are trannies walked on the other side and, realizing how good women had it, never came back.
