Other than transgender people themselves, no one will understand the stresses of having to prove whats going on, once you discover changing is the key to happiness. There are gates in the process we must pass on a case by case basis of which medical professionals you see and how much money you have. Its a pain to be interviewed as if you are lying with therapists while other right ones believe in you.

The big bad review board can be a variety of people. It can be a best friend that cannot accept the fact you will look different but inside they believe you will become another person. You have to prove to them that you will always be the same but highly enhanced and happier. It can be people you love and care about who dislike your situation. Therefore in your best interests, you end up having to convert their beliefs to not abandon them.

This board can also be in medical solutions. As stated above if you have the money, it talks and bullsh*t walks. There are some that say they are legit and if the price is right they will expedite your process in 75% less the time regulated (HBSOC). This might be local in our country and highly common overseas. There are no gates there but its also unregulated, questionable practices. The doctors you can trust is almost like trying to get a high end job. Interview, then prove your identity, then prove its true, then real life test it, etc.

Don’t get me wrong I am all for making sure you are 100% in irreversible changes but if I say I need to change and mentally capable of decisions; I NEED CHANGES. It can ware you down in the process of discovering you are trans. You first go through making sure yourself then having to get past medical gates. I cannot pin point the blame for the rigid gates and it happens on a case by case basis.

So next time you hear someone say they are trans, please just shut up and believe them okay thanks 🙂
