Trans People: Tell Us What You've Noticed About Gender Experiences If You've Transitioned

It's a well-known fact that men and women are treated differently in our society, and so it follows that the experiences of men and women are different. If you're trans and you transitioned MtF or FtM, you might have a unique perspective: You've likely experienced first-hand how both women AND men are treated.

So, we want to know: How did your experience change from before to after your transition? For example, you might have some insight into the different struggles that men and women face socially. Maybe you noticed that men are treated more coldly, while women receive way too much unwanted attention.

Maybe you’re FtM and the gender-affirming hormone therapy made you notice that you feel your feelings a little differently now.

Or maybe you've found that certain things are just harder in oddly specific ways. Like that men's clothing is generally the same size everywhere, but now that you're buying women's clothing, you've realized that every store seems to have a different definition of what "medium" is!
