    Heh, I know you're not saying that you hope more western women take vows of chastity and wear men's clothing in order to better assimilate into a male dominant society. Hmmm... You didn't really think this was a good example of trans(vest/sexualism) did you? Sure, go ahead, try calling these women lgbt to their faces...
    I didnt really read the article, but one of these women says that it's really about surviving in a world where men rule. And that when they decided to change their public identities, the general attitude was that women were valued no higher than animals...
