    Wait, I’m really confused. There’s a person who said that rape accounts for the high instance of MTF ex-military people. Like, does she thinks being raped makes men want to be a women?

    This raises so many questions. For example, how does she think that works? Does she think that the victim enjoyed being raped? Or does she think it’s a PTSD coping mechanism?
