  1. First step is to basically block my testosterone, so I got these:
    Spironolactone 25 MG, 2 plls a day per 3 months
    Diethylstilbestrol 2 MG 1 a day per 3 months

    My T levels are 7.7, according to my doc they have to go down to something between 0.x to 1

      I don't understand that. I don't know what gender is. Is it like personality? And what, you can't just be who you are and live happily unless there is a word for the kind of person you are? Just wear that pink skirt or whatever, go on the street and have fun. Is it so important to have a term? Why talk about this?

      Sometimes in these threads I feel like noone understands what the hell is going on in the discussion, but everyone is too afraid to call it bullshit because they will look bad. I know that's probably not it and I simply can't understand it because I haven't experienced what these people are going through but yeah. I've never seen a good clear explanation of what gender is.

      Well, your gender can be important if you want to take a leave of absence from work (maternity leave) because you have a new child but you were born a man but effectively now you are a mother. Works the same way if you were born female, decide you are a man, and request a leave of absence to care for a new child.

      Hence, categories can be important because they specify what protections you have under the law and in the workplace.

      I don't think a self-identifying woman is going to get into an emergency woman's shelter anytime soon.

      I'm not entirely sure if you're trying to be facetious with your post, though.
