At first I thought it was some sort of muscle building progress. I kept waiting for the girl to get ripped and be walking around in a bikini. Thankfully, that didn't come to pass.

I know a woman who looks eerily similar to her.

The power of hormones. I think she's a better looking girl than he was a guy.

i dont get it..

what compelled him to go this route? he looks like a perfectly happy big body builder and he doesnt look like he's the emo type guy who would perhaps tinker with this kind of thing.

and he is pretty big initially. did he still retain that size when he became a girl? i know lot of it atrophies but still he was a large guy in the first place i would assume he would still be like 2XL for a woman.

I don't understand, why would she want to be body building before a transition?

Meh, different strokes (sort of a pun intended) - it must make the person happier in some way. I couldn't imagine the struggle and pain of those with gender identity issues. I look at it as one less guy I'll have to compete with for resources, employment, chicks, etc. What a huge hassle it must be - the wardrobe change alone must be daunting, not to mention the androgen blockers and estrogen pills, electrolysis, etc.

I dig you Sho' but this is kind of fucking retarded. You don't just get bored with being a dude and "tinker" with something. As a guy he was probably struggling reconciling his feelings with body. To try and fix wanting to be a girl he chose to go the hyper masculine route. Also, a feminine (your emo type guy) dude is very different from a someone who is essentially a girl trapped in a guy's body. Edit: just realized how old this is

The choice of music is very apropos, considering that the end result somewhat resembles Katy Perry.
