A couple of fair use caps from two different HBSers.
HBS-TS's is a group of predominantly autogynophilic (hetero) males trying to legitimate their trans condition by co-opting intersex language including the "intersexed" term itself!
Because TGism historically and currently is intimately tied to Harry Benjamin and the Standards of Care Benjamin established to (in his mind) verify the "true transexual" from the "fake", this particular trans group co-opted Benjamin's name calling their brand of the "intersexed" condition a product of the Harry Benjamin Syndrome aka HBS. However Harry Benjamin and his Standards of Care (known now as WPATH http://www.wpath.org/ ) does NOT endorse this brand (trans=intersexed) of GID theory.
There literally isnt a single original idea/notion regarding TGims that sprang from a trans mind that has not been co-opted from somewhere else, and that somewhere else usually being a minority/minority group. I believe this is partly due to the severity of their mental disorder/s and partly due to (white)(hetero) male privilege which reigns supreme over all trans communities. (and when I say male, I mean male, NOT disordered women on T)......
