Why do transgender women elicit a much harsher response than transgender men?

    The number one reason is we live in a patriarchy and the associated misogyny. Society lionizes masculinity and puts down femininity. And society reacts quite dramatically in cases when a person they THINK is male acts in a feminine way or :gasp: wants to "become" a woman. Nobody "becomes" anything, trans women have always been female, but that's what our ignorant society believes. Society doesn't understand why anyone would want to give up their male privilege, why anyone would willingly give up the power and the prestige of being male. Now contrast this to transsexual men. They get little coverage because society thinks all women would love to be men. That transition for them means a step up the power ladder of our society.
