I posted this query on my Tumblr blog and the response has been incredible. Girls and women of all ages and orientations have written eloquently about their experiences in this Brave New World where the coolest thing **ever** is to transition from female to male. The pressure is real.
I thought about bringing the whole discussion over here from Tumblr, but it’s still very active and some posters may not want to be reblogged on a different platform. If you want to see everything, consider registering there, if you haven’t already. You don’t have to actually do more than set up a username and password for an account. In the meantime, here is the link to the thread.
