I am enjoying the book by c n Lester, Trans Like Me — conversations for all of us, NY: seal press, 2017. They write clearly about their experiences as a ftm trans. A particularly illuminating chapter concerns becoming a “real” person. This chapter reflects well many remarks made by both mtf and ftm trans persons. Getting beyond binary thinking with regard to gender poses difficulties for almost anyone who grew up in America. The physical limitations posed by biology and unhindered maturation are barriers to overcome in expression of a gender different from one’s biological status. But these barriers can be transcended and comfort can be found. Enjoy your voyage of exploration.
