Reddit Users Talk about How Their Lives Changed after Facial Feminization Surgery

reddit ffs

Reddit is one of the world’s biggest online forums, and people there come together to discuss everything from their favorite video games to their financial woes. In a subreddit called /asktransgender, one user asked, “How did your life change after facial feminization surgery?” The results were quite refreshing, and many people candidly talked about how they felt.

A Huge Change

One Redditor was very thorough in her response. She said that FFS was a necessity for her because she felt very self-conscious about her appearance. In fact, it was so bad that she stayed in what she described as “femme boy mode”, alluding to her feigned “feminine male” personality, because it was simpler and easier. She also noted that she felt as if she didn’t blend in with the crowd, which only made her more self-conscious.

FFS Before Gender Reassignment

The Pros and Cons of Undergoing FFS Before Gender Reassignment

FFS Before Gender Reassignment

Transitioning from male to female comes with numerous medical procedures. These start with hormone treatments and gradually schedule facial feminization surgery (FFS) and gender reassignment. Many people want to know which they should schedule first, and the truth is that there’s no one right answer. Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re struggling to decide.

Starbucks Gets More Proactive with Transgender Employee Insurance

Transgender Health Insurance

For many years, transgender employees have lobbied for better health insurance that helps pay for everything from hormone treatments to gender reassignment surgery. That lobbying appears to have sparked Starbucks – one of the best-known coffee shops in the country – to include numerous treatments common among transgender patients in their list of covered services.

Employee Healthcare for Transgender Employees in America

Per a paper published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2014 titled The State of Transgender Health Care: Policy, Law, and Medical Frameworks, about 0.3% of the American population identify as transgender, representing roughly one million people. The same paper also argues that many of the medical procedures and treatments sought by transgender people across the country are, in fact, medically necessary. Nonetheless, the vast majority of employer-provided healthcare policies do not cover the treatments, claiming they are no different from other cosmetic procedures.

What High School Is Really Like for Transgender Teens

transgender high school

High school is a difficult enough time, where teenagers begin to transition from child to adult all while dealing with fluctuating hormones and a multitude of firsts – first date, car, job. But the teenage kingdom of high school is even more difficult when transgender students make the bold, brave step to show the world who they really are.

Some transgender students have the safety net of a fiercely supportive family and friends. Others are not so lucky. Even those with advocates by their side often state they feel lonely, misunderstood, and far from accepted. Bullying is a common issue with these students, and these mean-spirited subjugations often lead to depression, anxiety, or even suicide.
