Most people who are would each not be in love with their partner, if they did not have the kind of genitals they have.

Instead of saying that all gender is this or all gender id that, let’s recognize that the word gender has scores of meanings built into it. It’s an amalgamation of bodies, identities, and life experiences, subconscious urges, sensations, and behaviours, some of which develop organically, and others which are shaped by language and culture. Instead of saying that gender is any one single thing, let’s start describing it as a holistic experience.

I am rather disturbed by the fact that so many people-who are neither medical professionals nor trans themselves-would want to hear all of the gory details regarding transsexual physical transformations, or would feel that they have any right to ask us about the state of our genitals.
