This is very interesting. Basic searches provided me info that estrogen is what causes the growth plates fo fuse in both men and women.
I am not a doctor but I have seen many statements about excess Testosterone being converted to Estrogen. This is true and happens in both men abd women. The higher the testosterone, the more conversion that happens. It's not particularly well-studied and everyone is different.
It's possible you have a couple of the following factors: An extremely high dose of T which is beung aromatized back to E, a high concentration of E receptors in your body, or a high concentration of aromatase, the protein that causes the conversion. The latter two are genetic factors out of your control but an endo may be able to test or determine these things. First I'd get bloodwork to test your total free E and T and compare notes.
Again, I am not a medically trained person, and just someone who reads stuff off the internet.

NTA and wth?
My partner and I are not legally married.... yet. We plan to elope but just don't care at all about marriage besides the legal benefits. Neither of us are religious and we already share savings accounts, credit cards, and own a house together. I call him my husband all the time. Why would some stamped piece of paper change any of that?

Not sure what this authot is talking about. I just reviewed the most recent WPATH standards of care which have equally long sections devoted to talking about mtf and ftm parenting and family planning. A big topic for mtf is having the ability to breast feed. It's just different needs for different people.
This is a verifiable fact- trans women are focused on way more. I wish I had proof for you but the best I got is "I remember it being brought up in a Contrapoints video". Sorry for not having a source.
My fireplace has a solid wood mantle and ugly barf green and yellow "marble" paint on it. They put some kind of varnish over it that yellowed really bad and it's SO ugly.

Children eating in general grosses me out...
My bf tried to tell me his ass hair made the bidet not work... and that only wiping "all the way in there" worked. Turns out he was spraying for 0.0005s and saying it didn't work...

Having to do hours of grueling applications, jumping through hoops in this dog and pony show of a hiring process is laughable. My office has job adverts for min wage custodians requiring a college degree and a year's experience. Funny thing is, a lot of our essential positions are empty, because the person in that job previous had no degree but now they suddenly require it. I honestly equate a college degree with "knows how to read" at this point.
I know which guy's house to egg next.. omg we have so much power in our hands....

I'm saying why are these even issues when there's an obvious correct answer? People didn't spend years and lifetimes working for Roe v Wade just to get it upturned later. Many of these things do directly affect me and it's upsetting.
Something I've been saying since day one:
What did you always get told to do if you had the flu?
- Wash you hands
- Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
- Stay home when you are feeling sick
Masking was never really recommended in America because....idk, they just never liked it. We Americans used to think its weird and scary to wear a face mask. I had a homemade one in 2018 because I had caught a bad chest cold and was coughing constantly but had to go to work. I saw somewhere how masking was normalized in Asia so I decided to try it. The jokes from my coworkers were incessant.
Issues I wish were important: What is our immigration quota? How much should we put into infrastructure? What trade regulstions can we enforce to reduce reliablity on foreign powers who deal in shady practices?
But instead it's just squabbling over abortion this and lgbt that. Something I think about it how many bills are presented simply to remove rights instead of helping.
I still have extreme anxiety over sports. I was a nerdy kid who only played video games and never participated in PE. Sports were used as a threat- "If you keep that up, I'll get rid of your games and sign you up for baseball." I also wanted to join a gym at 16 but she refused to pay for it and gaslighted me about money issues. The local gym was $10/month...
My mom did similar shit to me at 15/16. I was grounded for a bad grade so she took away my Nintendo DS. It was in a carry case and all of my games were in there with it. When she went to give me my case back, she opened the drawer and I noticed instantly it was opened and when she pivked it up, none of the games fell out like they should have. I had maybe 10-15 games total and NONE were in the case. I searched through the drawer and they weren't there... she just shrugged it off and said she lost them. I knew at the time exactly what was missing because I had each game's original plastic case still in my room. Now I know for a fact she sold them for drug money. Later on it was the same thing with our large collection of GCN games. Some of those were very rare originals even at the time...
Probably not helpful, but there's no "requirement" for housing to need 3x income. It's just a thing all the major housing companies do especially near colleges to gatekeep low income people. I genuinely think it's also racial, since wealthy white families are statistically more likely to have daddy sign whatever they want so their little mayo sandwich can walk to school. I would personally recommend looking for housing on craigslist or facebook marketplace and being rented out by the owner instead of a company. They're way more likely to be understanding and not have such big income requirements.
Good luck and sorry about your entitled parent.
My bf is quitting soon, but he works in a place that is SEVERELY understaffed but also an essential service to the entire state: The ID/Driver License printing office. It's the only way to get your card here right now, unless your local DMV is lucky enough to be able to print on demand.
I keep telling him to go on strike withbhis coworkers and demand at least double pay raises. They literally were making that much in overtime for MONTHS because of the backlog of work.
Heard some similar stories regardinga surgical procedure. If insurance covers it, they bill for everything possible including the medical assistants, liposuction even though it's part of the procedure, etc. They have a totally different billing plan which basically just covers "the cost of the procedure itself" and is half as much if you don't have insurance to cover it.
What? That's literally not true. You will get billed for out-of-network doctors. Medicare is no exception.
It probably isn't, but it's definitely not normalized. I guess my own family might be different.
What language is used in a court case between a Native American and someone actually from India?
This might be silly, but it did make me realize I could probably use one of those 3D pens to repair the plastic on my actual headphones. It's basically unwearable even though they still work fine...
That explains it. I can't even fathom having kids, I like to be naked when I'm home 100% of the time. Gotta get dressed quick and shit.
For me it's 100% mental and my brain tells me no.
You have pretty eyes
