calling at transgendered persons....
hi! my name is ethan (lj user="thinkindigo"), and i'm a 20 year old ftm living in burlington, vt. my mother is in her last year of residency to become a doctor, and, in order to become board certified, she must research and write a scientific paper to better educate the medical community as a whole. i came out to her as trans last september, so naturally she's really interested in learning more about it, especially medically. and that's why i'm here...
basically, she wants to compile some data about both FtM and MtF individuals at any stage
(pre/post/non-op and/or hormones) and the process they have gone/are going through in deciding about hormones/surgeries/etc. she wanted to stress that the purpose it is not
to "expose" anyone or anything, it is for educational purposes only; the final paper would be publishable in a family practicing journal.
your contribution would help my mom not only understand for her scientific paper, but also for her acceptace of her own kid (me!) eventually going on T. any help anyone
could give would be greatly appreciated. you can either email her
directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or, if you feel more comfortable, you can email me
at email@example.com and i can forward it to her.
please spead the word. thanks. and sorry for the crosspostings. :)
