XX Boys-Rapist-Facebook and 7100+ Supporters

While I and others have written about the serial rapist Kael T Block (a French trans female) in the past, this was recently brought to my attention. Miss Block has a Facebook page dedicated to trans females called XX Boys, where she enjoys a 7100+ following via "likes". Miss Block's rape crimes arent exactly closet crimes, and her escaping prosecution in the US was written about in both feminist AND trans communities across the web. Yet despite her rapist notoriety her trans female FB project has 7100+ supporters including support from well know trans females such as Susan Lee aka buck angel. In other words, leaders from the transmale community are lending support to rapists who are transmen.

Regardless whether thousands of trans females are in support of a transmale rapist because of their own deep seated internalized misogyny which is at the root of their own transition. Or because these women feel their chemically created male privilege now entitles them to ignore and/or perpetuate violence against women, who can say. But what I can and will say is something is VERY wrong and VERY dangerous with this picture, made more dangerous for us given our gay and lesbian community is considered a part of this community. So while the trans community may be in full support of a rapist in their midst, I'm calling on any and every gay or lesbian human reading this to go to the XX Boys FB page and report it for the violence it represents towards (lesbian) women.

thank you for your help!

  1. Not every trans guy supports nor likes Kael T. Block. I don't like him at all. You can't say the whole trans community supports him just because he has over 7,000 likes. Don't judge a whole community over one person's actions!

  2. This guy is a monster and I have no idea how anyone in the trans community would support him. I'm also no fan of Buck Angel because of his views of young people, trans women and others.
    As far as Mr. Block goes, France should extradite him to the U.S., but then again, they sheltered paedophile Polanski for decades.

    We're judging by 1 + 7,100, and supporting = condoning (actually "liking" is even worse.)

  4. That is the UGLIEST FtM freak I've seen yet! Thanks for informing us, and for showing us this most unflattering picture of her, lol.

  5. I'm thinking that most folks who "like" Block's page are either uninformed kiddos, Europeans, and FTM fangurls who think we're the "best of both worlds". Still, Buck is an asshole.
    As an FYI, there is something of a movement to spread awareness of the existence of this evil stain on humanity, at least on our side of the Atlantic. Buck Angel is the only trans person over 30 that I know of who remotely endorses the shit.
    Also, Iris, you really don't bring anything constructive to the conversation.

  6. "You can't say the whole trans community supports him just because he has over 7,000 likes."

    over 7,000 likes....is it 7,000 or 7,100?

    "This collection of statements is being distributed to inform the community that charges have been filed for aggravated sexual assault against Kael T. Block on July 26th 2006 in San Francisco. At the time of printing this Kael knows of these charges and has since been in hiding."

    (source: http://sexualpredator.blogspot.com/2006/10/sexual-predator-in-sf-dykeftm-scene.html)

    It appears that Kael fled the U.S. to escape going to court over his multiple accounts of sexual assault and is now living in France.

    There is a link to XX Boys on

    http://kaeltblock.fr/ website....

    Kael T. Block is the creator of XX Boys. Block is a photographer, and many of the photos at XX Boys look as if they were taken by someone with photographic skill.

    Since Kael T. Block is the creator of XX Boys, I assume that she, rather he, makes a profit from all the products associated with XX Boys.

    Tee shirts, mugs, calendars, etc.

    I wonder if Kael T. Block owns this:

    http://toysforxxboys.blogspot.com/

    (1.) Bring Kael's sorry ass back to the U.S. If Kael is innocent, she, rather he, has nothing to fear, and Kael can hold his head high.

    (2.) Don't buy any of the stuff Kael is selling.

    If Kael had any integrity he would come back and face the charges like a man instead of being a cowardly wuss and running away.

    Question: Kael is a photographer. Do transmen still pose for him? When was the date of his last photograph?

    Posted: Sat Dec 05, 2009 9:40 pm

    "It's awesome

    I planned to do some pics with him when I was 18 (which happened in the summer). Maybe we can get him to come over if there are enough UK guys interested."

    XX Boys is a project by Kael T Block to photograph transguys from all round the world. A must click!

    Posted December 7, 2009

    "I know he has, he proposed doing some shots with me when I was 18, but for various reasons I haven't followed it up - I was simply proposing a get-together where a group of interested guys said "if you come over, we're all willing and ready"

  8. I am sure that all 7,100 likes are just by trans guys or trans women. Not everyone knows about the crap he's done. Karma will catch up to him and when it does, then he deserves what he gets.

  10. I don't really buy it that the trans "community" doesn't know about the rape charges - it's all online, afterall. Trans are the main ones getting photographed, buying the Calender and other products (who the heck else even knows what "xx boy" means?)

    Iris,
    Kael looks like Ira Gray in that picture, (another FtM who tried to redefine rape), who writes for trans in Huffington Post. The whole thing just makes me sick, especially as I saw Kael has been frollicking in Berlin fairly recently. I will keep an eye out in case she comes to my city.

  13. The so called Trans *community* is NO monolith. It's the same as the Black *community*, Lesbian *community*, Gay *community*..... How the hell am I (and others) suppose to know who Kael T Block is? Are all trans people suppose to know each other; please gimme a break. The crime he supposedly committed was never widely publicize by the media. Kael T Block dosent travel in my circle of friends nor do I know anyone who has ever heard of him. Hes's a white kid living in his white privilaged artsy-fartsy world. I guarantee alot of those 7,000 likes are from gay males and others from the art world; dont be so quick to assume that is just trans folks. Plus nobody I associate with male or female would support a rapist, period.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I knew him, researched the charges, and cut ties with him. As much because of his bitch-ass response to the charges than anything else. I don't need a bunch of shitty, trans-hating lesbians to tell me how to think, or what my "community" really is. You all would not recognize morality if it slapped you upside the face, and I'd never find *my* standards of behavior and accountability reflected here.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anon 12:33,

    Give me a break. The main thing holding the trans "community" together is the internet. And Kael is not a "white kid" anyway, as if it matters what color someone is who is accused of a crime. I'm quite sure that gay men and "the art world" are not the main customers buying the FtM Calenders and other cheesey products Kael sells with her childish (boyish?) pirate logo.

    Now you know she's charged with rape in California and ran like a chicken shit back to France, still basking in the support of your trans community.

  16. The trans community shouldn't support this man, it's true. Many in the trans community don't. Many other people in the trans community have no idea who he is, or is aware that he runs that FB page but doesn't know he's an accused rapist. A handful of trans people make apologies for him (like most of our society does for rapists).

    Yes, dirt, you're right that the apparent support of those 7100 likes is a problem in the trans community. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

  18. I've heard far more outcry, concern, and protest from transmen about Kael Block. There are dozens, if not hundreds of cases of lesbian rapists, but I've never heard lesbian rape decried by any lesbians. Child sex abuse committed by women is a real crime, yet none of you take responsibility for what your community is doing. I know a few cases of lesbian rape in my city, but not a peep from the dykes. What is wrong with you people?

    Trans people in the prision system get kept apart from the rest, for their safety. Kael mwould have her own cell, etc. so it wouldn't really matter if she landed in the men's or women's. Men in a male prison population would rape her, because she's female and some might want to "cure her" of being a Lesbian (most would not have taken Gender Studies/know what "trans" is). Rape is actually the age-old "cure" for Lesbians.

  23. Trans troll comments....not appreciated

    Hey Germany, you have far more common sense than any of the trans trolls that post here. I appreciate your posts and look forward to your comments.

    "Hey Germany,

    When I look at the scars from elective mastectomies or "bottom surgery", sometimes I have to flinch because it looks like a form of violence being carried out on the female sex. The East Germans experimented on females by giving them large doses of steroids/testosterone and God knows what which wrecked the reproductive systems of many of these women. The German people know what fascism is, and they have witnessed ghoulish human experiments. So, I say let this woman from Germany speak.

    People who support experimenting on healthy female anatomies/reproductive systems/genitals/breasts with chemicals and/or surgery are more closely akin or aligned with Nazi ideology than those who believe females bodies are fine just the way they are. The Nazis carried out some rather bazaar and ghoulish experiments. Speaking of dykes, it's a well known fact of history that the Nazis exterminated a lot of homosexuals before they got around to exterminating the disabled and Jews. I don't imagine lesbians were approved of by the Third Reich.

    I've noticed an increase in the intensity of trans troll activity. We must be saying some things that people prefer to remain cloaked in secrecy. We don't go to their websites and post nasty **it, but they come here to post their trash talk. The assorted trans trolls don't want people to know the truth, and they will do anything to silence the opposition.

    Since this individual has the audacity to bring up neo-Nazis as in oppressive governments, it's well documented that gay men in Iran have been coerced into sex reassignment surgery.

    What they have to say can't withstand the light of day.....

    eventually the truth comes out...

    Lady from Germany, speak your mind...

    I love you for it!!!

    First of all, I hate to say someone is a rapist without being convicted, but it clearly does appear that Kael intentionally fled the U.S. to avoid criminal charges. If she steps on U.S. soil again, I assume she could be arrested. I don't know what the statue of limitations are in such a case.

    As to what prison a trans person might end up in, or whether or not they get their own cell, it all depends on what country they are in. In the U.S., transgender don't always get their own cell. Richard Masbruch still had his penis when he tied two women up, sadistically tortured them with an electric wire, then raped them. He was sent to a women's prison. Apparently, the state of California is more afraid of the trans activists and their lawyers than female inmates who have no power. If Masbruch (Sherri) was housed in a men's prison, he might be hurt. Therefore, his rights are more important than female inmates, so let's stick him in a women's prison so no harm can come to him. Masbruch should be in a segregated section of a men's prison not a women's prison. We have trans activists to thank for this sorry and pathetic situation.

    By the way, Masbruch never did undergo SRS. He self mutilated his own penis while in prison, and had to have it surgically removed.

    If FTMs are really men as they constantly remind us, then logic would dictate that they be housed in men's prisons. In reality, many FTMs don't undergo "bottom surgery" because of cost and multiple surgeries. Since females are generally smaller than males and most FTMs still have a vagina, I would hate to see any FTM be thrown into a men's prison. Still, they say they are male, so how is society supposed to handle this?

    Since lesbians are female, they are far MORE likely to be victims of molestation, sexual assault, or rape than to be perpetrators of these crimes. If it is true that FTMs are really men as they repeatedly say they are, then it ALSO MUST be true that they are more likely than women to end up in prison on charges of rape or sexual assult. The crime statistics are clear in this regard. Transmen always seem to want it both ways. Yes, they ARE men, but they really aren't like men in so many other ways. Transmen are men we are told again and again and again, but they are some sort of special man who never rapes or abuses women because biological males do this. I'm not saying all transmen are rapists by any means, but when a clearly abusive transman does come along, people fall all over themselves to excuse the behavior. Suddenly, transmen expect sympathy. The poor transman is just misunderstood. This is bullsh**.

    Center for Sex Offender Management
    A Project of the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice

    Female Sex Offenders
    March 2007

    National criminal justice statistics reveal that of all adults and juveniles who come to the attention of the authorities for sex crimes, females account for less than 10% of these cases (FBI, 2006). Specifically, arrests of women represent only 1% of all adult arrests for forcible rape and 6% of all adult arrests for other sex offenses.

    In contrast to the approximately 140,000 men incarcerated in prisons nationwide for sex crimes, only 1,500 women are estimated to be imprisoned for these offenses (Harrison & Beck, 2005). They represent only 1% of all adults incarcerated for sex offenses, and 2% of all females in prison.

    http://www.csom.org/pubs/female_sex_offenders_brief.pdf

    Are FTMs really men? If so, THEN THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE IN PRISON FOR SOME SORT OF SEX CRIME SUCH AS RAPE OR SEXUAL ASSAULT THAN WOMEN. All the statistics are clear on this issue. Yes, some women have been convicted of various sex related crimes, but compared to males, the numbers are low.

    I really don't think FTMs are men, and because they are female, they are likely to be sexually assaulted sometime in their lives. However, when they get pumped up on testosterone and get a taste of male privilege, they can start acting and thinking like men.

    It's not just sex crimes in that more males are in prison because of rape compared to the number of women in prison for rape. Most violent crime is committed by males, and if transmen are really men, then this must apply to them as well.

    The statistics on sexual assault and violent crime speak for themselves.

    Don't go saying crap about lesbians until you clean up your own back yard....

  26. I don't know if the following is true or not, but why doesn't Kael come back to the U.S. and answer the charges? Isn't it strange that he disappeared after all this came out?

    "Kael was staying in my home as a guest of one of my roommates. I had moved in 1.5 months before...Late that Thursday night/ early Friday morning Kael raped me. I had gone to sleep at 12:30am, because I had to be up the next morning at 6:45 to get ready for work. I had a few beers that night and smoked a lot of cigarettes in the living room, before I retired for the night, alone to my bedroom. I crawled into bed and went to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night to someone in my doorway behind my bed. I thought it was one of my roommates entering my room to get something off of my dresser, or returning something they had borrowed. I didn't pay attention to who it was and I rolled back over on the bed, on my left side, in the fetal position. I was awoken next by a startlingly cold liquid (which I now know was Lubricant) being smeared on my vagina, and my right leg apparently being held bent by someone's hand, because I couldn't move it. I was penetrated fast and hard in my vagina by a large synthetic cock that was strapped onto whomever was on top of me, putting their entire amount of weight on my hips, not letting me move my legs. I clearly asked, “What are you doing?” Then, I CLEARLY ASKED HIM TO STOP. I ASKED HIM TO STOP MORE THAN ONCE. I was not used to this sort of penetration. I had never been penetrated with a dildo, and hadn't even used a vibrator in over a year. I hadn't had any hetero sexual relations in almost 2years. I WAS NOT ASKED IF THIS PENETRATION WAS OKAY WITH ME.

    I was woken up from a deep sleep by Kael’s forceful entry. My eyes watered and I repeatedly said, "Please Stop." I attempted to put my hands on his shoulders but I found myself weak against his body weight and intent. I pushed on his shoulders, but he came closer and put his hand through my necklace, clenched his fist around it and pulled tight. The necklace was sort of like a piece of shoelace so it cut off my breath. I choked out again, "Please Stop," before my eyelids filled with color and my face felt cold. I had started to pass out and was possibly out for what seemed like a few seconds. He penetrated me once again and I remember my head kept hitting the wall behind me. I tried to twist my torso to the side to cut off his ability to penetrate me anymore, and I put my hand on the wall to protect my head."

    7,100 + likes.....

    In all honesty, I don't believe for one moment that the trans community is the least bit concerned about Kael. They don't care, and never did care. They just don't like people to remind them that transmen can be as egocentric, selfish, manipulative, misogynistic, and abusive as biological males.

    In addition to being into BDSM, Kael also makes some money from the porn industry.

    "Dossier sur le BDSM et les Queer Women" Rape apologist friends claimed that Block was a “dominant” who hadn’t mastered how to use safewords.

    Full cast and crew for
    "SexTV" XX Boys/Lexington Steele/Girls Rock (2007)

    We're just a couple of perverts, who are a couple. Here you will find queer, ftm, gay photography and porn. Lots of hot transguys!

    WARNING! THIS IS PORNOGRAPHY, and this is how Kael makes a living when she isn't working on XX Boys.

    http://unicornboyz.tumblr.com/post/3888051030/rocco-photo-by-kael-t-block-i-feel-honored-to

    “I feel honored to be a part of Kael’s project and deeply grateful that he has decided to take this on.

    He is giving face to a population of people that, to most, do not exist. He is creating a resource for us, made by us. He is creating a world wide community."

    I'm not saying that Kael is as heavily involved in pornography as Buck Angel, but she is connected to it behind the camera.

    I wonder if the XX Boys know that the creator of XX Boys also does porn on the side.

    Pornography is about degrading women for profit, and what better person to do this than Kael T. Block. Similar to Buck Angel, she carved out a little niche for herself in one of the most misogynistic enterprises on the planet.

    What Kael thinks of feminism...

    "In general, he seemed like a nice boy, but i had some serious issues with the things he said. He told me (direct quote) that he "hated feminists" because they called him misogynist. He told me that his "biggest fantasy" was a "rape fantasy," and that he didn't like to use safe words."

    I want you to know that just because a lesbian is posting hateful things about trans people here, hers is the voice of a hateful minority. Most lesbians do not hate the trans community and are as happy to support you as you are them.

    People post a lot of awful things here, and a lot of lies. Please just remember:

    You are a beautiful person.

    You are a loved person. If don't have a partner in your life, don't worry, you are as likely as anyone to find the love of your life no matter how you identify, or how you transition.

    Most feminists are not as awful as the people here make them sound. Most feminists support your right to be trans and proud.

    Sex reassignment surgery has nothing in common with female genital mutilation.

    It's up to you to decide if internalized misogyny plays a role in your transitioning. If that doesn't feel true to you, then it's not true.

    People here will post scary things about testosterone and sex reassignment. It's not all untrue, but it is usually blown out of proportion. For a good resource to research this information, check out http://ftmguide.org/

    Some transmen post awful things here too. Maybe they're angry, maybe they're sad, maybe they're scared. There are trans people out there who are bad people, but those are again a minority.

    If you decide to argue with people here, keep in mind that they have heard all the arguments before. They have heard pleas for understanding. They have heard our pain. They ignore it. I understand the need to argue, but know it's not your fault if they don't acknowledge you.

    It would be nice to have real discourse, but on this blog, comments get deleted, people ignore you and only respond by copying and pasting hateful things. This is not a place for discourse.

  31. Attention:

    Trans Troll Thought Police ...we have heard it all before...

    YOU HAVE POSTED THE VERY EXACT SAME THING ABOUT TWENTY DIFFERENT TIMES. Please copy and paste somewhere else. We don't go to trans blogs and post the same thing twenty or thirty different times. The trans trolls are really getting antsy lately. Why does this person think that the thoughts and observations of women have to be policed? What are they afraid of?

    Trans Troll Thought Police...I especially like this copy and paste job...

    "You are a beautiful person."

    Some of the 16 and 17 year old girls on youtube can't wait to go on the magical "T" and get "top surgery" which are essentially elective masectomies with surgically whittled down male size aerolas and nipples. They often cut the areolas and nipples down to size, do the masectomy on healthy breasts, then sew the areolas and nipples back on. Some of these females lose sensation.

    Apparently, Trans Troll Thought Police believes female bodies are only beautiful if they are chemically and/or surgically altered.

    Females need to be told what to think by MTF transwomen who weren't born female in the first place, or transmen who traded their female identity for male privilege? Thank you very much.

    "Most feminists are not as awful as the people here make them sound. Most feminists support your right to be trans and proud."

    Unlike transmen, I actually do believe that it's an honor to be called female.

    Transmen like Kael T. Block can't stand feminists.

    "In general, he seemed like a nice boy, but i had some serious issues with the things he said. He told me (direct quote) that he "hated feminists" because they called him misogynist. He told me that his "biggest fantasy" was a "rape fantasy," and that he didn't like to use safe words."

  32. The comment about being a beautiful person is in response to the people here who insist that being trans is ugly. But trans people are beautiful too. Non-trans people are also beautiful. Women are beautiful. Lesbians are beautiful. Feminists are beautiful. Physically, each of the posters on this blog are beautiful. A lot of ugly things are said here, but that doesn't mean that anyone's bodies are shameful or hateful.

    People who have surgery are still beautiful. Women who have mastectomies due to cancer are beautiful. Women who have their aureolas removed and resized as part of breast reduction are beautiful. Transmen who have chest reconstruction are beautiful.

    Being female is an honor and worthy of being proud of, for people who identify as female. Being a transman who is proud of himself doesn't mean that being female is bad. Being a woman who is proud of herself doesn't mean that being trans has to be bad. Our personal decisions about our identities and our bodies don't have to reflect on other people.

    So, dear non-trans anons:

    You are beautiful.

    You are loved.

    Sorry for leaving you out. I'll amend that in the future.

  33. Not being/feeling loved figures HIGHLY in transition so you might want to amend that last part.

  34. Untrue. While many trans people may feel unloved, that is not the reason they transition. Many trans people like myself feel very loved. Our family and friends are there for us every step of the way.

    When we don't feel loved is when people tell us that we're wrong for transitioning. It's when people spread hate and lies about being trans. We're in the same boat as every other minority.

    Just like you're more likely to experience hate and discrimination if you're gay. That may make you feel unloved, but you're not gay because you're unloved.

  35. "Women who have mastectomies due to cancer are beautiful. Women who have their aureolas removed and resized as part of breast reduction are beautiful. Transmen who have chest reconstruction are beautiful. "

    As to women who have had mastectomies because of cancer, any decent lab in the world can detect cancerous cells. The science is clear and very precise. This is the nature of good science, and it's the same no matter what country one is in. Good science can be replicated. Scientists can see cancerous cells in a microscope. HOW DO WE QUANTIFY "GENDER DYSPHORIA"? IS IT SOMETHING THAT WE CAN PICK UP AND MEASURE? The very concept of gender can't be completely isolated from the culture/peer influece etc. which one is raised in. Even if "gender dysphoria" could be quantified, does this mean that "transitioning" (hormones, surgery) is the only way to treat it.

    "Chest reconstruction" is nothing more than masectomies. It's just another word for "top surgery". A chest wall is not being reconstructed. Rather, healthy breasts are being surgically removed.

    I fail to see how what are essentially elective masectomies on healthy breasts and the surgical trimming down of areolas and nipples is beautiful.

    Beauty isn't determined by whether you've had cancer or not.

  37. Re: "I fail to see how what are essentially elective masectomies on healthy breasts and the surgical trimming down of areolas and nipples is beautiful."

    Me either, in fact, I find it utterly REPUGNANT because the main purpose of doing that is so they can go shirtless on YouTube (or at Pride marches) in order to flaunt their artificial "maleness" to people like me who were at one time "ambivalent," or "on the fence" about whether or not to have it done. I sure am glad I realized that (with a little help from my parents, who do NOT support such medical atrocities) and deleted my YouTube account in 2010, never to look at such videos again!!! I think the mere act of going shirtless is a sign of misogyny, even if done by a real XY man, which is why they are among the few who have such pictures of themselves on the Internet. They want to intice people like me into doing it, when in reality, most would have to admit that they've lost all nipple sensation if they wanted to be honest.

  38. Edit: the word is spelled "entice," which I've just realized, and I'd like to add that some have had revisions for "hematomas," which are pockets of blood under the skin and very dangerous!!!

  39. Iris, no one wants to entice you to get chest reconstruction. It's clear you don't want it. So we do not want you to get it.

    I, as a transman, am begging you to never, ever consider getting chest reconstruction. It's not right for you.

  40. "I, as a transman, am begging you to never, ever consider getting chest reconstruction."

    If Iris had trauma to her chest, she might need a chest surgeon. Since I'm assuming that nothing is wrong with her breasts or mammary glands, it's clear that she intends to keep them.

    I posted this a couple of months ago. It has always been frustrating and disturbing to me how trans deliberately construct words that hide the actual reality of what is being carried out against the female sex. The blood and surgeon's scalpel is hidden behind words such as "top surgery" or "chest reconstruction". They can't even say the words breasts when it's clear that it's breasts that are being surgically removed.

    As to "chest reconstruction", this term is so disingenuous to me that I really don't know how to respond. Does this person mean the thoracic cavity (or chest cavity) which is the chamber of the human body (and other animal bodies) that is protected by the thoracic wall (thoracic cage and associated skin, muscle, and fascia). By chest, does this person mean the thoracic wall and the external structures of the chest (mammary glands and nipples)? Most chest surgeons don't do surgery on the breasts alone. This is usually the domain of plastic surgeons, oncologists, and breast surgeons. FTM "top surgery" or "chest masculanization" involves NO reconstruction of the thoracic wall that I'm aware of. FTM "top surgery" or "chest masculanization" removes nearly all healthy breast tissue in order to cosmetically produce a masculine or male looking chest. Areolas and nipples are often reshaped down to the size of male looking nipples, and then sewn back on. FTM "top surgery" or "chest reconstruction" is cosmetic and it has nothing to do with reconstructing the chest wall. Mammary glands and nipples could be called part of the chest, but not all the chest (pectoral muscles, sternum, rib cage, arteries and veins, etc.). So, to say that mastectomies as in removal of mammary glands is "chest reconstruction" is a bit disingenuous to say the least. We all have a chest, but if there is nothing wrong with the chest to begin with, why do we need to reconstruct something that is healthy, or free of disease?

    If anything, although rare, any infection caused by surgery, or one's stay in the hospital, as in a hospital acquired infection, has the potential to cause damage to the chest or body as a whole. In this case, it wouldn't be reconstruction. It might be more appropriately called deconstruction.

    If a female has to have a mastectomy because of cancer, is this "chest reconstruction"? Mastectomy refers to mammary glands. "Top surgery" in the video below is called "double incision mastectomy with nipple grafting". It says mastectomy not "chest reconstruction".

    Only in an Orwellian trans fantasy land are actual mastectomies on healthy female breasts referred to as "chest reconstruction". I guess the idea is to convince transmen that they will look like Tom Cruise with his shirt off.

  41. Iris, Hematomas can happen from any number of surgeries, not just "top surgery", and are not always or even very often dangerous. in fact hematomas can happen without even having surgery! ever get a huge knot on your head after getting knocked in the noggin? guess what? thats a hematoma! did you die? no! did you have to have surgery? no! did it go away on its own eventually YES! you can also have them aspirated, yes in some RARE cases the hematoma can calcify and will have to be surgically removed, but that is rare. anyone having surgery is probably aware of the possible things that could happen after surgery including hematomas...and if they are not then they should have maybe done a bit more research before going under the knife.
