Perceive More!

Consent in Medicine Matters

It’s been a few weeks since I have posted an article to Medium. This is because on June 3rd, I got top surgery. Between healing and catching up on other work since then, it’s been very hectic. I’m very glad to be back to writing again.

Top surgery should be an incredibly joyful and landmark experience for many trans people. For those unaware, “top surgery” refers to a procedure that is functionally a double mastectomy — removing breast tissue to ease dysphoria that it creates in many trans men and nonbinary people.




Perceive More! is a publication that features pieces challenging our understanding of reality and pushes us in wanting to know more.
