( when the majority of a society collectively "Gas-lights" a minority)
"And Trans-people are very much a Minority"
(or in this case on topic of "feeling bad having sex with men wishing all the while wishing,wanting to really be female)
"“Gaslighting” is an elaborate and insidious technique of deception and psychological manipulation, usually practiced by a single deceiver, or “gaslighter,” on a single victim over an extended period. Its effect is to gradually undermine the victim’s confidence in his ability to distinguish truth from falsehood, right from wrong, or reality from appearance." - britannica.com
And this easy to do!, because as a Trans person you already most likely "Doubting yourself ", do to fact of simply,..your condition is " Out of the ordinary "
I don't know if it should be called Societal dogma, if so it leads to "Gaslighting effect " in that " here I am a boy, yet wants to be like the girls ".....even the mental health profession, until just recently held the status that being as I am → is a mental illness
♠ So, no matter how "right,real " being a "female-roled person, a Transfeminine or Transsexual if I did have surgery in order to at least have the appearance of a female vagina (which I have always desired). No matter how much you wish you didn't desire to be "Trans", you know your stuck with it, you begin to truly believe your simply ; → Mental ill !...
♠ If that's not a form of " Gaslighting " done by a Majority over a minority as a Whole, then tell me what I might call it ?
♠ How does the Majority Shame themselves? when it is Due?,,,,,a Huge problem any Great Society must face.
excerpts from ↑ ;
"In a society in which being part of the masses doesn’t allow for rational, emotional, or cultural advancement, being a social outcast is not a sign of social failure. In fact, the opposite is true. Being an outcast makes you a better person by allowing you to be an individual. You have autonomy and relevance, something people who make up the “in” group cannot even consider."
"If following the rules perpetuates injustice, if maintaining traditions is cultivating the obsolete, or socializing is facing each other with a feeling of emptiness, deciding to do something different isn’t crazy. One could even say it is a sign of intelligence."
"Being part of the minority in society doesn’t mean you aren’t part of the society. Being part of the “out” group or being selective about who you associate with is an act of strength, perspective, and determination. It can signal a desire for positive change in society as a whole." - exploringyourmind.com
