Blanchard's Transsexualism Typology
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Blanchard's transsexualism typology (also Blanchard autogynephilia theory (BAT) and Blanchard's taxonomy) is a psychological typology of male-to-female transsexualism created by Ray Blanchard through the 1980s and 1990s, building on the work of his colleague, Kurt Freund. Blanchard divides male-to-female (MtF or M2F) transsexuals into two different groups: "homosexual transsexuals," who are attracted to men, and "non-homosexual transsexuals," who are "autogynephilic" (sexually aroused by the thought or image of themselves as a woman). The typology does not purport to identify the cause of transsexualism in natal males, but it has some implications for the cause specifically, that the cause of transsexualism may not be the same for both groups.
