Thinking about the anonymous trans woman known as Agnes.
She secretly self-administered stolen hormones since the age of 12. That was in the US in 1951.
She successfully passed as a cis boy while undergoing fem puberty.
Then successfully passed as a cis woman since she was 17.
Then successfully passed as an intersex woman to the entire UCLA medical school, including psychiatrist Robert Stoller (who coined the term Gender Identity) and sociologist Harold Garfinkel (who wrote papers on gender passing), so she could get GRS at 19, fully healthcare covered.
Then successfully passed as a menopausal women to finally get a legit HRT prescription.
Then bragged about all of it to Stoller and Garfinkel, who admitted complete defeat.
