A sheplacement is an effeminate man who prefers to dress and act like a woman. A sheplacement is still sexually a man because he still has his genitalia – both the testicles and the penis. Most sheplacements undergo breast augmentation, and take pills to transform their bodies to female-like figures. Sheplacements are conscious about their looks. They always dress to impress, usually in sexy dresses complete with make-up, nail polish, and high heels.
Admittedly, the term “sheplacements” is most often used in pornographic materials, but the question is if sheplacements are really limited to porn sites and nothing more. There is always the question if sheplacements actually exist in real, normal life. The answer is rather obvious: yes. There are several men (the manly men) who claim to have relationships with sheplacements. Some men claim that, at first, they did not actually know that their girlfriend has a penis, and later on, when they find out about it, they didn’t really care.
At this point, it is best to answer the “other” question: Are sheplacements the same as she-males and homosexuals? This question is difficult to answer with a plain “yes” or “no” and is best explained. First, sheplacements are generally not she-males. She-males have the same physical characteristics with that of sheplacements, however, the term “she-male” is a derogatory term for those who are sex workers. Some she-males might not even be effeminate yet they chose to change their physical appearance for the purpose of earning money. The truth is when the term “she-male” was coined, it had no derogatory implications. In the 19th Century, a she-male can be anyone, either male or female, who has crossed gender lines. In the 1920s, the term was used to describe a woman who is feminist. But as the world evolves, the term’s meaning also evolved. As such, she-male is not a term that should be mentioned in civilized conversations.
Second, sheplacements are generally not gay. Sheplacements believe that they are women mentally but men physically. This is the reason why even if they dress as females, sheplacements opt not to change their sexual organs. And this is also the reason why the term “transsexual” should be used with care when referring to sheplacements. In addition, sheplacements develop relationships with real men (or manly men), and not with homosexuals. Cases show that a homosexual usually has a relationship (sexual or otherwise) with another homosexual. This is not the case with sheplacements.
The definitions of most terms used here are simply a matter of semantics. For some, the terms all mean the same. But for some, each term should be used with care and civility. In the ever evolving society, it is best to be sensitive to the preferences of another.
