Just Add Hormones Matt Kailey lived as a straight woman for the first forty two years of his life Though happy as a social worker and teacher, he knew something wasn t right Then he made some changes With the help of a good therapist, chest surgery, and some strong doses of testosterone, Kailey began his journey toward becoming a man As his body morphed and his voice dropped, Kailey began noticing subtle shifts in the way he was treated Men suddenly stopped offering to change flat tires for him but insisted on talking to him about women and bodily functions Women got nervous when he baby talked to their infants but routinely asked him to move heavy things around the office In these everyday exchanges, Kailey recognized the many ways we define what it means to be male He also realized that, with few role models, he had to learn to accept himself as a person between two genders.As he writes about his transition from female to male, Kailey answers all the questions you ve ever had about what it s like to live as a transsexual From the fear of public restrooms to deciding whether to pack his pants, Kailey explains what the world looks like from his new vantage point a position people are discovering as gender transitions become increasingly common More than a memoir, Just Add Hormones is full of sound advice for those who may be questioning their gender And through his story, Kailey offers valuable insights to the families and friends of those who have started a transition Funny, fresh, and incredibly candid, Just Add Hormones can help us all consider and even laugh at our own notions of what it means to be a man or a woman.

    Yay An easy to read book of reasonable length about what it s like to be transsexual today specifically female to male, though the author does a great job of expressing the universality of The Trans Experience opening in Vegas August 2008 Cool cover design Kailey s writing style is engaging and personable, with a great mix of personal anecdotes and broad examples Yay, talking about gender neutral bathrooms Though I understand that the book is about transsexuals rather than transgenders, Yay An easy to read book of reasonable length about what it s like to be transsexual today specifically female to male, though the author does a great job of expressing the universality of The Trans Experience opening in Vegas August 2008 Cool cover design Kailey s writing style is engaging and personable, with a great mix of personal anecdotes and broad examples Yay, talking about gender neutral bathrooms Though I understand that the book is about transsexuals rather than transgenders, the neutral p...

    Incredibly shallow and simplified account of the trans experience Kailey s half defensive, half preachy tone accented by trite, unfunny similes did little to enlighten the reader as to the motivations and internal struggle felt by the trans community Perhaps this would be helpful for someone who kno...
