AwwπŸ₯Ί

Tearful mom begs Texas lawmakers not to throw her in jail for supporting her trans child | Amber Briggle is "terrified... that my words will be used against me" and her son "will be taken from me."

I am a transgender woman and I just wanted to say something.

I think cisgender people need to understand one thing. There is one common misconception about transgender people. That it is a "decision" to be trans. That it is a "decision" to go on puberty blockers. Firstly, no one "decides" to become trans. No one would just "decide" to identify themselves in a group which is unfortunately already so victimized, misunderstood, discriminated against, excluded, and oppressed in our society, leading to high suicide rates among discriminated trans youth. You are either born cisgender or transgender (as far as only gender is concerned). People may just realise/notice that they are trans later in their lives. It may be as young as 3 years old, or as old as in their 90s. That is because being cisgender is wrongly considered "normal" in our society. So, many people may unknowingly suppress their gender identities until later in their lives. Therefore, when a trans person finally comes out of the closet, it doesn't mean they suddenly "wanted" to be trans. It's just that they may be ready to move forward with their identity and/or transition.

As far as things like puberty blockers for the youth are concerned, they are less of a decision and more of a life affirming intervention. That is why they are so widely supported by the medical community. Going through the wrong puberty for a trans person can be devastating to their mental health, leading to the above mentioned suicide rates.

It's like saying that you choose to become gay. You are born gay. You didn't choose it.

How does HRT exactly affect hormone levels? Does it build up the overall levels of the hormone over time by releasing it every day into the body? Do the variances in the levels within a day (due to half life and stuff) affect the overall levels or something?

Sorry if. I m not making sense. Have no idea how any of this works lol

ELI5 How are sex hormone levels (Testosterone or Estrogen) maintained in the body? I have heard of something called active level and overall level. What role does that play into this? Biology

I have just started taking 2mg Estradiol Valerate (Progynova) orally daily, at around 10:30Am. The day is good and calm, but then I notice my dysphoria rising a little around midnight (13-14 hours after dose). Is this normal?

I read that the estrogen levels plummet around that duration because of the oral half life or something. Could that have something to do with it?

"Can't aim for shit"!πŸ˜‚

This is why I have depression and suicidal tendencies

Yeah. They can go fuck themselves in their echo chamber of hate

I’m so high right now and this isn’t what I expected weed to feel like

I have found that if u r confident enough to drive while high, and not flip the fuck out, driving high is pretty easy, and relaxing too lol. I love how smooth the car feels on the road when I m driving high. DISCLAIMER: While it works for me, I would not recommend anyone to drive based on my experiences. Weed affects every one differently. Driving intoxicated is still very risky.

FINALLY started HRT...exactly on my 25th Birthday! πŸŽ‚ Looking forward to the future changes!

I surely will!

How much time after starting E did you notice even the slightest change in your mindset? Like "Yeah, this is doing SOMETHING to my dysphoria". Even the smallest feeling counts as an answer.
by u/Pokeforbuff Transgender-Homosexual in r/asktransgender 5 days ago

Exactly the same for me. All my life I was dissociated from my self, but never knew it was dysphoria. As soon as I came out as trans to my self, the time before I started my transition was definitely worse. In terms of dysphoria and dissociation from, like you said, the dissatisfaction of not taking any medical action.

Woah. That's like an ultra low frequency. Congratulations!

Umm. When you suppress testosterone and take estrogen, as all trans women do, you forego that muscle mass. It becomes the same levels as cisgender women. Coz a male body needs testosterone to maintain that extra muscle mass. No testosterone, no extra muscle mass

A surge in legislation targeting trans youth "could come at the literal cost of lives," advocates warn

Trans women who have been on the correct hormones for some time do lose all their "biological" advantages. Muscle mass goes down to cis women levels, hormones levels (T to E ratio) becomes same as cis women, etc.
