The model is an attempt to explain transwomen (male-to-female transsexual and transgender persons) who are not exclusively attracted to males, including lesbian (or "gynephilic"), bisexual and asexual transwomen.
The model claims that transwomen (called "gender dysphoric males" by Blanchard) who are not sexually oriented toward men are instead sexually oriented toward the thought or image of themselves as women.
According to Alice Dreger, one of Bailey's supporters, two of the four transwomen who accused Bailey of misusing their stories were not mentioned anywhere in the book, and Bailey's critics' publication of obscenely titled photographs of his minor children constituted an unconscionable harassment campaign.

  Autogynephilia: A Mistaken Model
That some transwomen have had, or continue to have, sexual fantasies that could be termed autogynephilic does not make them “autogynephilic transsexuals.” They are merely transwomen whose bodies have been trained over the years to respond with physical arousal to the fear associated with being caught doing something socially “wrong”.
The shame that so many transwomen feel about these fantasies is a shame that has been internalized, and stems from the response of so many people who have no understanding of what it is like to grow up with gender dysphoria.
Her guilt and shame at feelings which were nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of led her to embrace a model that explained those feelings in a way that seemed to dispell her guilt and shame.

  Transwomen - TransWiki   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Transwomen or trans-women are transsexual or transgender people who have been identified as members of the male sex since infancy, but believe that this is not an accurate or complete description of themselves and therefore (usually) identify and live as female.
Transwomen who feel that their change of gender and any medical treatments have been completed often prefer to be called simply women and consider transwoman or male-to-female transsexual to be terms that should only used for persons who are still transitioning.
People of extremely conservative cultural backgrounds or beliefs tend to look upon transwomen as either effeminate gay men who took their effeminacy to an extreme level (if they are attracted to men; see drag queen) or otherwise straight men with an abnormal fetish (if attracted to women).

 Some thoughts on why it's alright to ... - Transgender - tribe.net
It is weird, and wrong, I thought, for one group of marginalized and activist folk to preemptively exclude another group of marginalized and activist folk, especially on grounds that apparently appeal to retro-2nd wave feminist conceptions of essential womanhood.
The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival (www.michfest.com/) is a long-running, radical feminist festival where, I've heard, thousands of primarily white, suburb-raised women gather in the Michigan woods, grow and work together over the course of a week, listen to fan-friggin-tastic music, and party like Dionysian earth goddesses without having to police their bodies.
Though transwomen like me may have self-deprecating habits, this may not be the particular space that our suburb-raised psyches need to go for healing.

Sadly, transwomen often are, for affirmation or even affection, but assuming that she is makes you a predator, not a knight on a white horse.
There's a whole range in between; for instance, some transwomen I've been with preferred to call their pre-operative organ a "big clitoris" or "clit on a stick"; some were fine with hands or mouths but couldn't bring themselves to do that most male-perceived of acts, penetration of another with their big clits.
Somehow, transwomen often attract total strangers who think that they have the right to turn into a Wardrobe Couselor or Acting Coach, coming up out of nowhere and telling her how she should be walking, talking, or wearing her hair.

 babble: Kimberly Nixon
I reject the notion that transwomen are *really* men: even if they have grown up in male bodies, as transpeople they can hardly have experienced the privilege of maleness in the way that male-identified men have.
However, when womens centres are being asked to be inclusive of transwomen (and transmen) this is something that should be taken seriously as part of a re-visioning of womens centres in today's world, 2006, and not in 1976 when many of these organizations began.
With transwomen, somehow the assumption is that someone born male de facto has male privilege, which, after taking Trans 101 (yes, that's what the 519 program calls it!) I know to be untrue.

The terms shemale (or chicks with dicks) refer to transwomen (male-to-female transgender or transsexual people) who have female breasts, through hormone replacement therapy and/or through breast augmentation and usually other female secondary sex characteristics, but who have not undergone genital reassignment surgery.

 Sexual orientation of transwomen   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Research on the sexual orientation of transwomen (male-to-female transsexuals) is sparse.
Others point to evidence that same-sex attraction may be common within the cisgendered female population, so perhaps a large proportion of lesbian and bisexual transwomen is nothing that should evoke surprise.
A number of transwomen have reported that their sexual interest shifted from one gender to the other during the course of their transition.

 De Novo: Phallocentric Feminist Friday
I think feminists should admit transwomen into female-only space because transwomen are women (scroll to the comments beginning in March 2007).
Transwomen also have had to spend their lives "under the rule of men." To assume that because someone ever has been identified as male by others, that she has not had part of the women's experience, is a narrow-minded belief that does a disservice to feminism.
You say that transwomen have always been with feminists, yet they had to pretend not to be transwomen; if they were open about it, they were accused of gate-crashing, of making it all about themselves, of disrespect toward WBWs; if they didn't say they were trans, they're called liars.

 Nottingham Women's Centre admits transwomen | Press For Change
Transwomen had entered the centre many times before but no actual policy existed for protected admission and with the occasional "Bad Experience" caused by one or so transwomen who behaved in a provocative manner, gave valuable ammunition to the opposing groups.
The Sudden influx of transwomen that the centre had feared might happen that morning, didn’t materialise; Cherrie and myself were not suprised.
Individual groups can still bar entry into there meetings, however at this time one group only has expressed their opposion to transwomen entering their group i.e The Lesbian Centre, it is thought that in time this group will eventually agree to admission.

 National Center for Transgender Equality
While trying to cloak WWTMC’s rhetoric in window dressing by calling transwomen “sisters in struggle,” Vogel erroneously continued to assert that it is not transphobic to ask transgender women not to attend the long-running Festival.
In a disturbing twist of logic, Vogel acknowledges that transgender women will now be able to purchase tickets, but she stands behind the spirit of company’s recently retired policy, calling transwomen disrespectful if they choose to attend the Festival.
While WWTMC has dug in its heels regarding which women it deems fit to welcome to the Festival, the attitudes of festival-goers and workers have definitely shifted since 1991 when a transwoman was forcibly ejected from the event.
