About Transition Strategies
The SOC7 from WPATH suggests for
transsexual transition before SRS and after diagnosis, a period of 3 months to 1 year of
social exposure of the transsexual in transition as a RLE - real life experience.
We know, that transition period is extremely difficult, humiliating and full of possible traumatic situations, for transsexual youths in schools and at home, and even for more mature ones, in offices and other social places.
Is that suffering really necessary, or is it a trace of old taboos and exclusions, even unconscious exclusions determined by therapists against the transsexual existence?
Gendercare create an alternative strategy for transsexual transitioning, mainly for MtF transsexuals, what we call
The Butterfly Strategy.
After Gendercare`s diagnosis, what is really important, in our opinion, is not to be sure if the transsexual will adapt to a new life... we are sure, after our diagnostic, they will..... we don`t need to ask any more sufferings from them to be sure about it.
What is important for us is the patient be sure of its own reality, and we from Gendercare we need to be sure about our patient`s reality and future complete harmony in its life. With our complete diagnosis, and our follow up during transition, we may have that insurance.
What is important then? To show the miseries of the patient to all people, for 1 or 2 years?
What is important is to do the transition inside a social and existential cocoon, as a protection against any aggression from the environment and society.... against all possible professional and other social aspects exclusion from "normal society".
The patient knows, and we know what happens, but the classmates, the colleagues do not need to know!
One or two years later, after the most perfect SRS surgery and transition, the patient leaves the cocoon, and renewed, she, as a butterfly, can start flying publicly, as a normal woman.
As all butterflies, she will need to be smart.... to don`t be catched by any butterfly net device, or to be killed by any animal that surely will live in the same environment, with her.
See the scientific explanation in simple words for how a caterpillar transforms in a butterfly
See that TO ERECT THE BUTTERFLY, the caterpillar needs first TO DESTROY ITSELF and stay some time as a PUPA, as someyhing not well formed, in a critical transition of itself. NO ONE MAY ERECT A BUTTERFLY without an inner destruction of the old caterpillar.
