Are transmen real men? No, not any more than transwomen are real women. But they do represent a real phenomenon, that is becoming increasingly obvious.
We’ve spent a lot of time on this blog discussing transwomen (it’s one word, by the way, not two.) But as yet, I’ve said very little about transmen. (Again, one word.) Essentially, just as in MtF, there are two forms. On is a homosexual form; they are in fact lesbians with a social desire to appear as men. This is consistent with their sexuality: to attract female partners, they wish to appear to be men.
FtM HSTS transsexuals are the equivalent amongst females to the MtF transsexual who is, let us state again, a person born male who is attracted to men from childhood and is naturally extremely feminine in every way — so much so that they can never be successful men and are better off transitioning. HSTS transmen are the exact opposite.
