Male positive asseverationist. The male, physically and psychologically male, accepting the pull to become female. (This is not properly explained. Would this be a metrosexual or a psychologically androgynous male who is accepting of his female side?)

- Male negative asseverationist. A female soul in male body who accepts the pull to the other psychological sex, i.e. male. He will be masculine, and dress definitely so, and might be quite aggressive. (This is what others have called a homovestite. Would homophobia fit here?)
I am not a fan of 4-box or 8-box typologies. They can be useful in laying out ideas, but they also restrict ideas to their simple forms. There are some good bits here:
- the important idea that one can deny or asseverate the pull to be the other sex.
- the incorporation of cisgendered heterosexuals into the schema.
- the inclusion of the concept but not the word homovestity (Zavitzianos did not coin the word until 1972).
- the ideas that a female soul in male body is in denial of her male sexual pull if she is transgender. This is of course contrary to what most transgender persons assume.
- where do transsexuals fit?
- 2.1 and 2.2 would need to be much more clearly developed.
- there is no comparison or correlation to other theorizing on sex and gender.
