The medicalisation and pathologification of being transgender, an exploration

Unfortunately, the belief held by a number of both trans and cisgender people that the only ‘real’ trans people are those that are transitioning and that ‘transitioning’ requires some sort of medical intervention; medication (hormones) at the very least and more aggressive medical interventions (surgery) at the more extreme levels exacerbates some confusion in society. At least some people believe that if you aren’t (at least) on hormones, then you aren’t really trans and you are ‘just crossdressing’.

Daniella is not rambling in this blog.  Instead, she has written a well thought out post on, The medicalisation and pathologification of being transgender, an exploration.
