Seriously, people?Â It’s been weeks now and you still feel the need to bitch at me on formspring because I’m not willing to shell out $20-100k on surgical options with results that don’t make me happy?Â Do you not have anything better to do?
I have spoken to surgeons in over a dozen countries about every possible lower surgery option there is right now.Â I have talked to surgeons you probably haven’t even heard of because they can’t find a transguy willing to be a guinea pig for their new surgical technique (honestly, it’s likely because they’re not all that different from the known procedures and have more risk).Â I learned several different languages solely so I could speak to researchers.Â I have spent the last decade of my life pouring over medical books and the latest research findings trying to guess at how long it’ll take before there’s a surgical technique I’m willing to try.Â I’ve done enough research to have multiple job offers from surgeons and academics as soon as I have the formal education necessary to make it legal.Â I know what I’m talking about when it comes to this.
I still refuse to go with any of the options I’ve heard of so far.Â Why?Â I don’t like them.Â For me they’re not worth the money.Â They’re not worth the potential complications.Â They’re not worth the risk that I won’t be able to have another surgery when an option comes around that I actually want.Â If you want to have one of the current surgeries then go for it.Â It’s your body, you know what’ll make you comfortable.Â Just stop telling me that I think your body is deformed.Â Because I don’t.Â I honestly couldn’t care less about your body, it’s not like I’m sleeping with you or something.Â I simply have a different opinion when it comes to the current surgical options.
For those of you who still think I’m some asshole who thinks you have a frankenpenis or something: find a better use for your time.Â Go help the homeless or get laid or something.Â I’m just a guy with a blog.Â I get an average of 50-100 hits a day, most of them from the same people.Â I’m really not important enough to be yelling at.
For everyone else: sorry about this.Â I’m just a little sick of getting home to an inbox full of expletives.
