11 Rapid-Fire Questions From Reddit (fixed audio)

An awesome Redditor sent Faith 11 great questions and we go through them all, bam bam bam, for your listening pleasure.

The Pitch Drop Experiment is a demonstration of viscosity where pitch in a funnel yields one very slow drop every 7-9 years (until the lab installed air conditioning which then slowed the rate of drippage too ever 12-13 years).

Of course Flying Synagogues are a thing. Or they were in 2006.

Vaginoplasty 101 Part II

Post-surgical recovery, physical therapy, and the patient panel were in the second part of the NYU-Langone day-long class in vaginoplasty.  Faith got antsy toward the end of the class but Kath took her to the Waterfront Ale House right after (1 block away) and everything was okay.

Peggy Huddleston wants you to heal from surgery faster.  Visualization and breathing have empirical data supporting them but reiki lacks reliable evidence at this time. Trick or Treatment is a great book that looks at high-quality scientific publications about several alternative medical practices.

Vaginoplasty 101 Part I

NYU-Langone offers a day-long class in vaginoplasty for women who have their GRS scheduled in the near future.  Caregivers are able to attend too!  So we went, listened, took notes, asked questions, and ate sandwiches.  We learned SO MUCH that we couldn't fit it all into one episode. We could barely fit it into two.  So enjoy these mega-episodes!

A hand mirror is recommended for looking at one's brand-new vagina.  Your phone, or a compact, won't work.  Sure, any hand mirror will do. But here, we like to go big or go home.

Psychology Today can help you find a therapist.  (That's the US link, so go here if you're CanadianMexican, or if you live outside North America.)

The OUT Foundation partnered with NYU-Langone for the class. They can provide resources for people traveling for their GRS, and seem pretty cool overall.  They have an inclusive gym finder, host the Big Gay Field Day , and started the Don't Be An Asshole Tour.

If You Can’t Take HRT

If there's a medical reason (or any other reason) that makes HRT impossible for you, are you screwed? Thanks to a great question sent in by listener N.R. whose pulmonary embolism makes HRT too risky for her, Faith and Kath discuss what other options exist. They also think up terrible metaphors.  

You can have an excellent stew without meat.  Seriously, try it.  We're not even vegan and we love this recipe.

Faith’s New Dirtypillows

 medical_bra.jpg

BREASTS! Faith discusses her recent breast augmentation surgery: the ordeal itself (not bad), the immediate followup (kind of bad), and the weeks since then (not great, but getting better every day). Next time they tell you to grow a pair, just say "no thanks. I'll BUY a pair!"  No, wait, don't say that.  That's weird.

Supporting A Gender-Questioning Partner

Awesome partner Jenny asked us "I was wondering if you could discuss the gender spectrum a bit and what it means to be gender questioning. My partner doesn't really know how they feel but they know that they don't feel entirely their assigned gender. As a straight cis woman, I am having a really hard time understanding these feelings and what to do, if anything, to support them in helping them figure out what makes them most comfortable." We discuss how labels can be both helpful and unhelpful, the kinds of questions necessary, what societal strictures should be ignored, and the frustrations Jenny's partner may encounter.

There's a great guide to figuring out a non-binary identity from Micah at Everyday Feminism.

Even Introverts Need A Community

Ugh, MORE talk about the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference?? Yes but this will be the last episode where we go over the PTWC the until next year, we promise. But all you wonderful listeners who stopped to talk with us at PTWC got us drunk on dopamine, so all this Philly material is kind of your fault. But it also brings up the importance of community,even to introverted misanthropes like ourselves.  While online communities are invaluable and even lifesaving, there's just something about being in a room full of people like you.

See You In Philadelphia!

Next week's Philadelphia Transgender Wellness Conference is going to be amazing. We hope we see you there. COME SAY HI AT OUR TABLE!  But 75% of the reason we got to Philly is the food.  For that reason, please educate yourself on the following important information:

1) There's an art to ordering a Philly cheesesteak, and it's worth getting it right.

2) You can have a sandwich of pork roll or Taylor ham, but it's smart to know the difference.

Is 2019 a Bad Time to Come Out Trans?

Closet.jpg

Is the political climate right now conducive to coming out trans? In this week's episode we answer a listener question: "Someone close to me has come out to me as trans and I’m so proud of her but so many things in the news scare me. I know she finds them scary too. I just wonder, if you were facing starting a transition in today’s world, would you? Would any of the threats to trans rights going on today give you pause if you were still at the beginning of this process?"

Does transition ever go exactly according to plan? In this episode, Faith and Kath go through the old "Transition Timeline" document that Faith had created prior to even starting HRT.

HRT: Should I Tell My Parents?

56ccaf301e000021007029f0.jpg

How open should you be about expressing your true gender if people aren't supportive? In this episode we answer a listener question from Quinn who writes "I'm planning on getting HRT, and I really don't want to hide it from my parents, but I think I will have to. I just don't feel comfortable with talking to them about my gender because they said they weren't ready for the change. I am going to go through with getting HRT no matter what, but should I let them know? I don't want to hide this from them, but if I tell them I don't know if they will let me go through with it, even though I am an adult and get to make my own medical decisions."

Erections & Squirrels

skyscraper-under-construction-in-moody-lighting_vyhczbir__F0000.png

Hormones can change a lot. But how much do they affect ones sexual arousal? In this episode we'll answer two different (but related) questions from listeners Sammie and Cici. They write: "We are a cis woman and trans woman in the early stages of hormone therapy and have a question for you: Erections!? Sammie’s doc told her that the end of erections is how they judge the success of the hormone therapy! Yikes! Maybe this question is too X-rated for the podcast but we are feeling conflicted about parting with Sammie’s erections.

One thing Sammie has been and is still hoping for is the"remarkable clearing of the mind,"the "sense of relief" described by trans women "that comes from eliminating their masculine sex drive, which had previously interrupted their thoughts like a car alarm that couldn't be shut off." Sammie wonders, will the “Squirrel!” like effect of girls' curves in yoga pants ever diminish? Is there tranquility ahead? Would love to hear the experience and thoughts of you, Kath and Faith, as well as our fellow gender rebels in podcast land."

Trans Wellness Conference, Philadelphia 2018

philly_trans_wellness_2018.jpg

The amazing people at the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia have done it again. They organize the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference every year. This is a gathering of trans and cis doctors, lawyers, therapists, scientists, professors, vendors, social workers, health insurance insiders, artists, activists, poets, writers, YouTubers, podcasters, clergy, parents, nurses, comedians, entrepeneurs, and even a witch. All these fine people come together to work towards a world with greater access to resources and acceptance of transfolks.  They present workshops, give talks, throw parties, and discuss and celebrate YOU. We describe our experience of our first year at the conference: the talks we heard (Seeing Myself in the Bible: Gender Minorities in ScriptureMy Journey With Illegal Silicone Injections, Communication With Your Cis Partner, Getting FFS and Breast Implants Covered By Insurance, The Road To Desired Vocal Identity), the events we attended, and the joy of meeting some of our listeners in person!  We hope we see you there next year!

How to Get on Hormones

woman-consulting-doctor.jpg

Taking hormones can be a huge part of starting transition, but how does one get HRT? In this episode we answer a listener question from Mia who asks "I want to get on hormones, but am having trouble figuring out how to get access to hormones? Who can I talk to about this?" 

If you are in the greater NYC area, check out Callen-Lorde Community Health Center. Planned Parenthood also provides HRT services among other important health care work. You can also search for transgender health care providers here.

Our first episode with Dr. HD of Hormones Demystfied has a lot of good info on HRT.

Check out the Center for Transgender Health which has a page on the Transgender Standards of Care.

(And a clarification regarding psychologists and prescriptions: in some states, psychologists can prescribe  medications. However, it's only for medications that treat psychiatric conditions, not HRT.)

The Gender Rebels is a weekly question-and-answer podcast that explores life outside the binary; crossdressing, transgender topics, queer life and anything else that helps break down the gender binary. It's hosted by Faith, a transgender woman in Brooklyn, and her cis female partner Kath. You might also hear a bark or two in the background from our cis dog Rocket.
