Exactly, I don't know what the other posters were talking about with the jawline. I've seen REAL females with more manly jawlines.

In the first picture, her shoulders and hands are a big clue. I wouldn't necessarily look at her and think "man" though.

I used to manage a gas station, and one day I borrowed an employee from another store because I had to go to the doctor. She was a fairly well put together lady in her 30's, a little more neatly dressed than most of my 20 year old pothead employees. I didn't notice anything strange about her at all. The next day, I was checking the time clock on the computer and noticed that she had clocked in as Alfonso. I called the store I had borrowed her from to make sure she hadn't used the wrong employee code, and sure enough, she was Alfonso. I would never have suspected. ( and it didn't really matter to me...if you had a pulse, could run the register, and wouldn't rob the store blind you were a great employee )

Looks like an anime tranny. Or maybe Nicole Polizzi.

About one in 1,000 males are born with a XXY karyotype. 64% will never be diagnosed. I bring this up because relying on chromosomes to determine male/female is considered the norm, yet we not routinely determine karyotype (unless an individual shows symptoms of a chromosomal disorder.) There are many people who we call male, have been raised male, identify as male, and possess secondary sex characteristics of males...yet do not have a 'male' karyotype.

There are plenty of real women who look like dudes in drag. I only clicked on the first link - clearly very convincing, and much more attractve than 60% of females out there. In some cases you'll need to do XY/XX testing to tell. Of course you can't see the adam's apple in the picture - that can be a giveaway.

Oh honey, her face is beat! You put enough makeup on anyone and they can pass, at least in low lighting. You combine tons of surgery (really obvious surgery), electrolysis on the hairline, hormones and ethnicity (because I always think that white people look less closely at nonwhite people) and suddenly you have someone who amazes you.

To me, she looks like a tranny. And that is because I know quite a few trannies who would spot her at the jump. But girlfriend spent some real effort (read: cash) on her transformation, so she wears it well. Hand and feet are always the key, gentlemen. Hands and feet.

Interesting too how some people are absolutely DRAWN to MTFs. Personally, I never got it-- I am a gay male and I like my men to look like men, complete with all secondary sexual characteristics. But I know some men (usually younger men) who are incredibly fascinated by a pretty girl who may be packing a little extra in their panties. I never understood the fascination, but that is just me. OP, care to comment?

His chromosomes say "she's" a man. He can change his body all he wants but he will always be a man.

Mad love to Alfonso. If I had a tranny at my gas station it'd be the bomb.

There used to be a really young but wholly unconvincing tranny at my Starbux. I loved going in there to chat with her. She had a terrible weave that made her little Sbux hat fit poorly, but she always had about 6 inches of false lashes and a boldass jewelry. She was about 6'3 in heels (yes, girlfriend worked in some shiny pumps), skinny and had an adams apple. And I watched her get hit on by more men than I can count. I always wondered at that-- there was no way you could pretend you didn't know and have anyone except the very naieve believe you.

Sure. People who start HRT when they're 17-early 20s get very good results from what I've seen. The older you get, the results are more iffy.
