      What about successful men that are feminine and vice versa.

    2:26 challenging stereotypes by wearing trousers with short hair and saying that makes you a man....wheres the logic? breaking a stereotype would be having short hair and saying youre still a woman duh

      He isn't challenging stereotypes by wearing short hair and saying he is a man... genuinely don't know where you got that from. Eli is quite simply a dude in a womans body until he can change that. The stereotype challenging comes from him changing his body physically BEFORE taking hormones and surgery. People need to be more aware of what they are saying and in which direction it's aimed at

    Not being disrespectful for Eli, but who are assigned female at birth generally don't have enough testosterone naturally to put on muscle as much or as fast as males. It's why women scared of weight lifting making them bulky isn't true. Eli wont get that stereotypical musclar masculine body without more T or PEDs, it's how those hardcore female bodybuilders do it. Still, I wish him the best of luck with the transition.

    ugh another lesbian who is too scared to be a woman. Anyone who wants to destroy their genitalia has a mental illness.

      @Grey Mind I think they ment the current (more like past tbh) attributes associated with men which seem to be viewed as negative /harmful.

    Eli, you will never look masculine without testosterone. Just buy it on the black market.

    She should cultivate femininity. She’ll feel much better for it.

    I find it sad that she says she wants to look good for the photos her ex will see, but at the end of the day, it's her choice and she will surely benefit from working out, no matter for whom she does it.
    Eli on the other hand, he's such a cutie.
    Best of luck to both of them.

      @Michuu so well put. Being/feeling strong is something that goes beyond external appearance

      Yeah, rather I'd say _Focus on what your body can do, rather what it's doing for others_ I've been much happier for it.

    Maybe some mental help could make her connect with her femininity instead of transition into a male!

      @Tylers Hate Page Ok, I'm quite sure some societies in the past accepted homosexuality though. But without gender reassignment surgery I don't think you could change your sex. I don't think gender defines a person though. As I said I am not an expert on the subject and if I met someone who changed their gender I wouldn't judge them entirely on that. I think I need to meet more people that have had sex change to actually understand them and open my mind up to what gender reassignment is.

      @Pete S. The same way people delt with their homosexuality... Hid/repressed it

      @Tylers Hate Page I never knew that I misgendered him. From the video he looked like a girl to me. More convo needs to go on about gender change though it seems like a hard convo to have.

      @Tylers Hate Page Okay if you say so, I can't understand gender dysphoria since I don't have it. But I also wonder how people with gender dysphoria dealt with it in the past when there was no sex change.
