For those of you not familiar, the model works roughly like this:
Autogynephilic (woman and/or self-loving)/Androphilic (man-loving)
Not-feminine in childhood/Feminine in childhood
Late-transitioning / Early-transitioning
Now let's examine each case:
Lynn Conway was a patient of Harry Benjamin’s who fathered children before transitioning and eventually marrying her current husband. She is an outspoken critic of the Blanchard work and is a tireless defender of transgender rights. But which typology was she?
Kimberly Reed is a feminine and beautiful woman who transitioned in college, was an all-star high school quarterback and has a female life partner. Hence relatively early transition, gynephilic and not obviously feminine in childhood.
Gigi Gorgeous was a self-proclaimed and very effeminate gay male who then transitioned early as expected but then became a lesbian?
Zagria was a late transitioning gay male who was refused treatment at Blanchard's CAMH because she wasn't supposed to exist. Late transitioning androphilics are not allowed in the model.
Blanchard’s old fall back position would have been to accuse these people of lying when their narrative didn’t fit a model which, in retrospect, didn't turn out to be so accurate after all.
I suspect it's because real life doesn't lie.
