What the fuck. I've seen quite a few trans surgeries but this is new. At first glance this looks like they took a pre-pubescent girl and gave her liposuction, "thigh reduction" and "tummy tuck" as part of an anorexia affirming surgery. Sorry but I don't know what else to call it.

At second glance, it still looks like that, except maybe it's an adult woman after all and there are very faint lines of previous mastectomy scars.

Anyhow, this is sick. How anybody can claim that this is feminism is beyond me.

I had my finger accidentally (and partially) cut off when I was younger and reattached with some stitches. That scar still gets tight and hurts every once in a while (especially with weather changes when the skin tightens, etc). My scar is only half an inch long.... I can't imagine the consequences of these surgeries. Look at the 'after' photo of the thighs... just the sight of that skin being pulled together looks painful.

I knew a woman from weight watchers who lost 200 pounds and that brought her to a healthy weight. She wound up dealing with a lot of skin issues such as sores and fungal infections due to excess skin flaps. Eventually, insurance approved her to have skin removal surgery. While the woman I knew was extremely happy with being free from the skin pain, she said the recovery was extremely painful and not worth it if you’re just doing it for cosmetic reasons.
