We get a TON of questions from our amazing and fabulous new patients in our Planned Parenthood transgender hormone therapy and preventive health service program about what and when they can expect hormones to start making changes happen in their body. We turned to the info from our colleagues at WPATH – that’s the World Professional Association for Transgender Health – and put it all together in a sweet little handout. Information is power.
'I'm a transgender woman - ask me your invasive questions'
Transgender trend. Heterosexual male calls himself a woman because he likes dressing up. Meanwhile, most women experience things he never will, like periods, the fear of pregnancy, and childbirth and motherhood. He will never suffer ovarian cancer or miscarriage. It's disrespectful and inaccurate to call him female or a lesbian. It's okay to be a feminine male and society needs to be more accepting of gender nonconformists. Instead of surgery and hormones he needs psychiatric treatment.
