Gender Affirming Care
Friendly reminder: The vast majority of gender affirming surgeries are obtained by cisgender folks.
Cisgender women get breast reductions or implants, either of which are gender-affirming for the particular woman.
Cisgender adults get face lifts, hair transplants and laser hair removal, which are gender affirming for those particular people.
Cisgender adults are treated with hormones to help with menopause, to deal with painful periods, and to help with energy, which are gender affirming for those particular people.
Viewing gender affirming surgeries as something ‘extra’ and only utilized by the trans community is inaccurate and pathologizing.
Each of us deserves to be affirmed in our gender, to feel good about and in alignment with our bodies.
