Who knows. Maybe it would help him access a nurturing aspect of his personality that would show him a way to be a more benevolent despot.
Presumably if the trans movement reaches its intended goals Assad having double DD's wouldn't really make a difference to his public image.

I mean to me it's really not a big deal. I don't care about Caitlyn Jenner and although I think you're supposed to (care), at some point it should be like that, ie: normalised. So coming out, whether as gay or trans isn't even really a thing.

As for despots, I think one of the the defining aspects is a sense of grandiosity and paternalism which convinces them that they are 'doing this for our own good'. And plenty of mothers are willing to dish out a whooping.
