    I'm an adult male with puffy nipples that don't change with weight loss or muscle bulk. Is surgery the only option, and any idea what sort of price tag that might have?

    Is surgery the only option? There's probably not a pill you can take. There may be some clothing options though.

    No clue on the price tag, either. I'd assume it would vary from doctor to doctor.

    Google says that sort of surgery runs anywhere from 2-5k in the US. There are pills out there, but they don't look legit at all. Like, I've seen dick pills that look more like something I would expect to work.

    The surgery can sometimes be done under a local, but it's still surgery so, you know, possibly a big deal.

    Short of that, I've heard some guys had success with just wearing a thick undershirt, or they make special compression shirts that are supposed to reduce visibility.

    Yeah, if I did that, that's the reason I'd make up, too.

    Was the tuna transgendered?

    This guy probably has gynocomastia. It's super common, but the only fix is surgery.

    So every other creature on earth is not only more fluid than a human regarding gender, but they're set up to just fix it naturally.

    Fuck you, nature.

    "Research on the tuna sex reversal hormone by the Australian CSIRO (Mulligan & Stropper 1992) has shown that this compound could also have similar effects on humans if dosages were high enough, or if low level doses were administered over a sufficiently lengthy time period."

    Don't hate the tuna, they're just trying to help!

    edit- okay, figure 2 has me thinking this might be some kind of insensitive "joke"? I dunno. It was the first thing google spat out that looked relevant.

    Is it possible for a trans-person to ever feel 100% happy in his or her body, after surgery/hormones/therapy? Or is it a constant battle?

    I think this would vary from person to person, but I'm not as worried about happiness as some other people might be. For me, every step I've taken has been an effort to fix the biggest problem in my life. I'm not 100% happy once it's fixed, but I can spend my time and energy working on other things. So really, your philosophy on the whole thing, as well as what constitutes 100% is relative.

    Plus I mean... cis people don't feel 100% happy in their bodies all the time either? It just seems like an odd question to me

    Well, a lot of trans people go through body dysphoria, which is a sort of anxiety or revulsion toward the configuration of your own body. For me it was sort of like some body horror when you look down and see some kind of weird leech stuck to your pelvic bone. I'm not sure if people ever really get over that, either. I know you can reduce it to the point where you can function normally, though

    This isn't really trans related at all but reading this thread made me ask girlfriend if she would dress as The Monarch for Halloween (she is slim and a redhead) and I would go as Dr. Girlfriend (I am a large man). She instantaneously agreed.

    So that's awesome.

    I guess what I was trying to avoid saying earlier (and therefore made an awkward point) is that I think it's kind of a bad question, which I know is not really in line with the snugglehuggy-ness of these threads. I think it's kind of unfair and silly to expect a handful of people to answer a question like "can all trans people x" or "do all trans people feel y way" and I appreciate that you answered it with "in my experience" and clearly said it was just the way you feel. Mostly kudos to you for being a lot more polite than I would have been if I got a question like that

    This might be a little too much for some so I'm going to spoiler it.
    Has anyone else here noticed a difference in their orgasms since starting on hormones? Mine steadily became more and more disappointing over time, until nothing was coming out and I could hardly feel the contractions. And lately they have been getting better. The last few have been electrifying. Like my entire body tingles. It's just like being shocked, except it's warm and pleasant and it feels like less of a jolt and more like a strong vibration that rings out and then slowly fades away.

    I stopped asking why certain things made me happier and approached it from a scientific perspective completely

    there's also some chaos theory in there somewhere

    I am nature and I will find a way
