For me, and as far as I’m concerned, we’re all a 10! And maybe even an 11 or 12! Why? Because as transgender women, we have to work harder at it than even the most plain Jane GG does. We make the extra effort and take the extra steps to make ourselves as feminine and passable as possible, so that we can go out into the real world and be seen and treated as the women we want to be, instead of being seen only as a man in a dress.
The reality is that as transgender women, we’re at a slight disadvantage, not having grown up as girls and maturing into women, so we didn’t learn all the things real women learn along the way. Because of that, there are always improvements we can make in our appearance, in our deportment, and in our presentation. And truthfully, as transgender women we’re always striving to improve our look so that we pass more easily. However, to some degree, that’s also if we’re trying to match up with what cultural standards consider “beautiful.” Again, in my opinion, we’re all beautiful and should not have to try and meet some artificial standard, but that is a choice that is up to each of us individually.
I know that I pass as a woman. I know that I can blend in as a woman, be seen as a woman, and be treated and accepted as a woman. Am I beautiful in the eyes of the world? Maybe, maybe not. I’ve had men tell me that I’m a pretty woman and I’ve had women tell me that I look pretty, so perhaps so. But I honestly don’t care. I am me and I feel good about who I am as a woman. I love dressing as a woman, making myself up as a woman, and going out in public as a woman. I dress nicely and appropriately and I look like a mature middle-aged woman, which is who and what I am.
So ladies, we’re all 10s or above, remember that!
