As a cis woman who has just (after 4 years of bullshit) started hrt for perimenopause, I see a huge connection in the gatekeeping of hrt to perimenopausal uterus-havers, and the gatekeeping of hrt to trans people. Just give us the fucking hormones, people. And any other treatments necessary!

@sallyprovan Congrats on the hrt, I hope it is great for you!
As a previously cis appearing woman I spent 20 years trying and failing to get hysto for endo. The day I was prescribed testosterone my Dr remarked in the most offhand way that as a trans man I would of course be eligible for hysto in the next 5 years. I actually almost went postal in the surgery.

@dustbinflowers wtf! I can't believe you had to suffer through that. (I mean, I can believe it but you know)

@sallyprovan deeply ironic that I had to transition to male to become eligible for hysto...
