    How do you know how it feels to have the mind of a woman?

    I've spent most of my time around women growing up and I act in a similar manner. I've also researched it and both homosexuals and transsexuals have brains mimicking those of the opposite sex. There's also the fact that the ENFP type is most common in women.

    F2M's are the ones who have brains approximating male brains.

    M2F's are not nearly as pronounced; the structures are shifted but more "in-between". There's also a difference in M2F behavior vs gay male behavior... gay males have some feminized behavior but if they do, it tends to be more accentuated, and they still posses some masculine ways to approaching situations, whereas M2Fs are more likely to just fit within the normal range of feminine behavior.

    I'm not aware of ENFP being the "most common type in women." I would suspect in the US that belongs to ISFJ.

    What I meant to say was that among ENFPs, women are more common. 8% versus 6% for men.

    Either way I think my life would be easier if I were born a woman.

    You mean in terms of who you are?
    I wouldn't say either gender has it easy.

    Not only with regards to how I express myself but also my sexuality. I don't think it's debatable that women are expected to be attracted to men.

    So you're taking grief for same-sex attraction?

    To me, gender identity and sex preference are not equivalent.

    Well considering only 3-4% of the US population is gay, I'd say it's pretty appropriate to compare attraction to men with womanliness. Not to say I'm not masculine; quite the contrary. I can bench 300lbs (the limit on my uncles weight machine), I have a killer beard and substantial body hair, but internally I don't feel like that outward appearance is reflected internally.

    Homophobia comes from that kind of assumption...that men who are into men are "womanly" which then is an affront to a man being a man rather than a woman.

    So how do you deal with having inner and outer at odds like that?

    If I were to suddenly make a magical transformation into the female gender I would lose lots of my knowledge and willpower because me being male makes me stronger in multiple ways.
