You know Bloodworth, having your brain not in sync with your body is kind of the definition of gender dysphoria.
Some of the prevailing attitudes in this thread exhibit a profound lack of knowledge that would be almost amusing if they weren't so sad. I’m taking
the time to add a bit of information for those not bound by their willful closed-mindedness that might be interested because I consider myself to have
a fair bit of practical knowledge in this area by having close family members and friends that have lived it that some might find valuable in helping
to have better understanding of these things?
Although it is much more rare than people think and again I’m talking about a very small subset of the transgender community, maybe 10-12% or 50K
people in all of history, there there are genuine transsexuals that undergo sex reassignment surgery or whatever popular acronym of the month you want
to call it? (SRS, GCS, GRS, GAS, etc.) If you don’t believe these women live with their own brand of unique gynecological issues, some that even
natal females wouldn’t want to deal with, you’re probably mistaken.
There are two main and now a newer third type of procedure used to create a neo-vagina in transsexual women with the key differences being what
material is used to create the lining of the vaginal canal. Before the techniques developed in the 1950s, they just used to take a skin graft from the
leg or abdomen which was less than optimal.
No, even after surgery and the year it often takes to fully recovery these people can’t get pregnant or menstruate (duh) but they can have UTIs,
yeast infections, post surgical or post coital bleeding or ongoing or occasional vaginal discharge that may require feminine sanitary pad and they
have to have unpleasant gynecological exams like the rest of us and share many of the same health issues that natal women have. Although they have no
cervix and the possibility of cervical cancer isn't a concern, most doctors insist on performing routine pap smears regularly anyway along with
regular mammograms just like your wives, girlfriends, sisters and moms.
Depending on how young a person started hormones or had surgery, hormone therapy is usually reduced at the typical age of natal menopause to match
their biological peers resulting in the same common symptoms like hot flushes, psychological changes, cognitive decline and the risk of osteoporosis.
Depending on the surgical technique used and the skill of the surgeon, let’s not even mention the possibility of a recto-vaginal fistula or the
ongoing lifelong maintenance needed to prevent vaginal stenosis or the possibility of vaginal prolapse and commonly, insufficient lubrication for
Oh yeah, even though it is atrophied to almost nothing under the use of estrogen, surgeons don’t remove the prostate gland during a sex change
surgery so there’s always the possibility of something going wrong there too that needs to be monitored and in case you’re wondering, what little
remains of the prostate is located near the anterior wall of the vagina in a location analogous to the natal female so called G-spot.
You may not think of these people as women or female but they sure as hell ain’t exactly men or male either. Most in the demographic I'm referring
to transition at the average age of 20 years old and you'd be hard pressed to know they weren't born female. Contrary to popular opinion, they are not
deluded about their biological sex either.
Throwing these people in with the likes of the crazy wax my balls type like Jessica Yaniv or the 50 y/ol man the that thinks they are a 6 y/o girl
type like Stefonknee Wolsch or any of the other fetishistic, disturbed and delusional people dragged into the public consciousness as representative
of all trans people really isn’t fair and does a disservice to the legitimate trans people that have enough problems of their own without being
mocked and ridiculed.
If you've read this, thanks? Even if I knew it was probably pointless, I had to try.
