sympathetic transgenderism is a lesser known phenomenon in which the friend of a transgender person may experiment or toy with the notion of being transgendered themselves. this person may do this to better understand their friend, or better understand their own sexual identity. sympathetic transgender people may experiment by wearing clothes opposite to their usual gender assigned attire, joining trans pride parades and using genital prosthetics.
