Things I did not say to the doctor who was conducting my assessment for top surgery, but really wanted to: an incomplete list
#1: the fact that I am grey-asexual is not a hormone fluctuation that I should see my endocrinologist about. This is a return to normal after the interruption of hypersexuality while my body was adjusting to testosterone.
#2: No, I did not do “cross-gender” activities as a child. There is no such thing as “cross-gender” activities.
#3: My sex life is none of your business, thank you very much
#4: And neither are my sex fantasies. Didn’t anyone ever tell you that gender =/= sexual orientation? Because that’s like Gender 101 shit right there.
#5: Can we PLEASE stop talking about periods now.
#7: Yes, of course, my school and family life are absolutely going to be affected by saying tata to the tatas! Because my parents and teachers absolutely see me shirtless on a regular basis! /drippingsarcasm
#8: Okay lady if I knew what you wanted me to say I’d be able to get to the point faster, don’t ask me a question like “what is your mother like” and expect a three word answer. Because she’s definitely not “distant” or “cold” or any of that Freudian bullshit. She’s a person, and not easily summed up.
#9: oh my god can we stop talking about sex now please
#10: This irrelevant questioning is an affront to my dignity as a human being. I should not have to “earn” top surgery from you.
#11: Fuck you and the horse you came in on.
