also no, i do not enjoy being female because that would be like saying that i enjoy having a spleen. i have no particular feelings towards my spleen (beyond gratitude that as far as i can tell, it's doing its job properly), it's just part of the biological machine that is my body. i wouldn't define myself by having a spleen, why would i define myself in terms related to my sexual characteristics?

(though my relationship to said sexual characteristics is actually tricky. no, i don't mind having internal genitals and breasts, but i do enormously mind that i'm technically capable of pregnancy and that said breasts are technically capable of producing milk. though if i suddenly woke up with a male body i'd still want to get sterilised like yesterday, so there's that. i just have incredibly defective instincts as far as reproduction goes.)
