Even if they at first think being a "normal man" is quite enough, they are still always reminded of their inadequacies: Short, low muscle density, slow muscle build-up, semi-functional dick, delicate digits etc. Hormones and cosmetic surgery can only take it so far.

Going full manly man bulldyke lumberjack with a viking beard helps to overcompensate, and to draw attention away from their feminine traits by hoarding as many masculine trappings as possible. Of course this will peeve TERFs who preach that gender is a social construct, and that the only reason girls prefer puppets and pink stuff over toy cars and blue stuff is the evil partiarchy forcefully pushing them into their role. Transpeople not only recognize the division, they embrace it and wrap themselves in it to move the external perception of them closer to their inner self image.
