Blanchard had proposed that there are two types of transsexuals: homosexual and autogynephilic -- in other words, that all or almost all transsexuals fall into one of these two categories.
I'm going to call them Type 1 (homosexual) and Type 2 (autogynephilic).
He separates transwomen into two categories: the “homosexual transsexual,” an early transitioner, a formerly effeminate gay men who wants to be attractive to men; and the “autogynephilic” transsexual, a late-transitioner, always attracted to women, who fetishize female genitalia and want to possess them.
According to Mercedes Allen, guest blogging in this post at The Bilerico Project, “Drs. Blanchard, Zucker [...] and a small cadre of others are proponents of dividing the transsexual population by sexual orientation (homosexual transsexuals vs. autogynephilic) and have repeatedly run afoul of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH, formerly HBIGDA), and openly defied the Standards of Care that WPATH maintains (modeled after the original SoC developed by Dr. Harry Benjamin) in favor of conversion techniques”.
