I'm going to have deal with a TIM physician. I'm a nurse.

"She" came out via Facebook, in a photo with "her" family- two little girls and a wife, who had the eyes of a hostage.

I'm supposed to be empowering providers, even if they don't understand biology or, y'know, material reality. Or the difference between the collective shared human experience and their own perverted delusions.

Pray for me, y'all.

ETA: I have a very niche job, if I get too detailed on a public forum, I will dox myself. If any of y'all are burning to know, send me a private message.

The TIM is in a small private practice, but I will only be there a few times per year. I just am utterly baffled by a physician, of all fucking professions. I consistently block out "Rachel" Levine.

She is a hostage. I hope she is able to get away. [says ex-wife of TIM]

If that person were my physician, I'd be changing doctors in a flash.

God...a TIM physician. How would one even look him in the face...treat him with respect as a medical professional when he not only believes he's a woman, but expects you to go along with his delusional fantasy?

This is so upsetting. So if you request a female doctor, would he count? I would absolutely not go quietly into that goodnight.

I requested a female therapist and got a TIM.... I have ptsd from a TIM.

Even in therapy, when YOU are the patient, their feelings are more important

I’m so sorry. When you specifically request a female, that should be a clear cue to them. They chose validating a man over the safety of a woman

That's so messed up. Did you end up changing therapists? I think you can request a different one if you say you feel it's not a good fit.

He is living his fetish. The fact he's married to a woman makes it clear he is the autogynephile variety of TIM.

So ... forget taking him seriously, I would run for my life.

It's kinda like seeing a medical professional dressed in BDSM fetish stuff. How on earth do people think that's okay?

Most people don't know about AGP, since TRAs are covering it up. We need to start educating the public about this fetish. If people actually knew the truth, a lot of problems would go away since they would be recognized as the creeps that they are and everyone would realize that being exposed to them and being forced to call them "she" is sexual harassment.

😬 hopefully the wife will run off with the kids , try to avoid interacting with him as much as you’re able. I wish you good luck .

The fact he has two little daughters adds to the horror. I always have to think of Bruce Jenner stealing his daughters' underwear.

Chances are, he's cheating on his wife on top. Since he has decided to be ruled by his dick, he will likely be ruled by his dick in all matters.

(If I were evil I would advise OP to find another job, then concoct a scheme to make it look like the TIM had an affair with her. Some women only give themselves permission to leave once their horrible husband also cheated, on top of all the other horrors. I am opposed to lying, though, so ... doing a bit of private sleuthing to find out the cheating he is likely doing, and very probably in the workplace, is all that I can recommend.)

So she doesn’t feel alone

Can you find out the wife’s address and send her a completely anonymous note. Really brief that just says it’s OK to leave no one will judge her etc. and maybe some women’s organization numbers

Oh hell. I'm so sorry. There's a TIM in my private periphery that I've been able to avoid but I'm worried he'll somehow end up in a mutual social setting. I also just learned that a close friend has been in touch with him and I'm sad because it changed my view of said friend. It made me feel a bit icky about my friend.

I know I'm not the only woman here who would love to hear from you again about what it's like for you and how you cope with this.

Ugh. I hope he isn't a gynecologist. At least you only have to go a few times a year. I'd suggest quitting if dealing with this guy was something you had to do 5 days a week

"She" came out via Facebook, in a photo with "her" family- two little girls and a wife, who had the eyes of a hostage.

This is so bizarre. Why come out to colleagues via Facebook and include a photo of the wife and kids?. It feels like what a politician does after being accused of soliciting prostitutes.

The asshole is probably forcing his poor wife to identify as a lesbian and/or queer as well

Ew. I feel bad for his patients. I'm sure he's convinced that he understands women's experiences while being somehow even more egregiously misogynistic than regular men.

We are with you, sister.

Has your facility issued guidelines or in any way addressed how patient requests for female providers will be handled with respect to this physician?

I'm so sorry. ): even more sorry for his family. That poor woman and her daughters.
