I was recently given a small pamphlet of info on Hormone Replacement Therapy, with a focus on estrogen. This pamplhet was given to me by a nurse at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, where I’m receiving care during my transition. This pamphlet has valuable information, and I couldn’t find it anywhere else online, so I wanted to scan and post it. You can access it here. Please share!

“One of the most profound and universal realizations of later childhood, a realization that probably is never totally integrated, is the discovery that one’s parents are not necessarily representative of the human species, that one has grown up in an idiosyncratically structured family with its own peculiarities and dramas.”

—   Stephen A. Mitchell, Relational Concepts in Psychoanalysis (via psychotherapy)

“Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge. Whether it is obscuring state language or the faux-language of mindless media; whether it is the proud but calcified language of the academy or the commodity driven language of science; whether it is the malign language of law-without-ethics, or language designed for the estrangement of minorities, hiding its racist plunder in its literary cheek - it must be rejected, altered and exposed. It is the language that drinks blood, laps vulnerabilities, tucks its fascist boots under crinolines of respectability and patriotism as it moves relentlessly toward the bottom line and the bottomed-out mind. Sexist language, racist language, theistic language - all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas.”

“We have many, many studies that suggest that the limits we assume are real are artificial, and that we don’t have to accept them at all.”
