FTM Female Body Parts=Not disposable
December 23, 2010
To the FTM woman who said : “Last time I checked, I couldn’t pick anything up with my breasts or walk down the street on my uterus. I’m perfectly fine without them. If you all want to hold on to those parts because you are female, then you should probably start having babies and breastfeeding because that’s what those parts are for.”
Your fantasy that women’s breasts ovaries etc. are purposeless beyond childbirth is a symptom of your self-hatred.
Women’s breasts are part of their lymphatic system, essential for cleansing the blood. And According to the Mayo Clinic, 20 to 60 percent of women will experience chronic pain after a mastectomy–a condition known as Post-Mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS). Symptoms of this condition include pain in the chest wall, pain or itching in the shoulder or armpit, pain around the surgical scar and tingling down the arm.
Ovaries are part of the endocrine system which regulates hormones. Risk of cardiovascular disease following oophorectomy increases by 700%. Oophorectomy before the age of 45 is associated with a fivefold mortality from neurologic and mental disorders. Urinary incontinence frequently occurs as a byproduct of hysterectomy. If the vagina is retained, vaginal prolapse may occur from the removal of supporting structures, and normal lubrication is impaired. There is an increased risk of kidney cancer.
Your natural hormone balance is impaired. Males produce estrogen and progesterone as well as testosterone. Removal of estrogen and progesterone causes premature aging, as these are anti-aging hormones. This is also why FTMs experience male pattern baldness much more rapidly than men: not enough estrogen. Lack of estrogen causes levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, acetylcholine, norepinephrine, GABA and serotonin to decrease. Estrogen stimulates the release of growth hormone and may help prevent Alzheimer’s although research is preliminary on that point. Progesterone is a precursor to other adrenal hormones and promotes lipolysis (fat breakdown). It normalizes levels of blood sugar, zinc, and copper.
And this is only what we know at this point in time. New hormones and hormone byproducts are being identified all the time. Over 50 recognized at this time, and many precurse, stimulate, or inhibit others in a complex feedback system.
Not to mention that hormone injections cause peaks and drops in hormone levels and feedback networks unlike anything naturally experienced.
So those useless organs that you think females have are actually beautiful, elegantly designed, complex and important.
