    This thread was inspired by the kinds of threads I see on a futurist forum that I frequent, where people make threads for news and discussion relating to a particular topic. I'm not sure how well it will go over here, just thought I'd give it a go and see what happens. Basically, it's about what the title suggests, news and discussion surrounding the medical transition of trans people.

    Example, I found this article about the logistics of a trans woman receiving a uterus transplant and subsequently giving birth. As well as this article about lab grown *ahem* vaginas. Though usually under the link you would provide a snippet of the article linked.

    After which, anyone could give their thoughts on said articles as well as provide their own links, occasionally finding a newer one with updates regarding a previously posted link.

    PS: The articles I linked were about trans women, but go ahead and link stuff about trans guys here too. I hope at least some of you like the idea! :thumbsup:

    I'm actually wondering how they're coming along with bottom surgery for us guys.

    Like, if they can grow a penis in lab, that'd be so awesome. I'm not very happy with what's offered right now, especially since they need skin grafts...

    I would like bottom surgery someday, but not at the cost of my forearm skin...

    I especially enjoy this article, I found it quite a ways back, and every once and a while I re read it, and each time it comes a little closer to reality.

    I am a relatively optimistic futurist, though perhaps the author is a little too optimistic, as I see the possibility of the things that the author suggested coming about in the mid 2020's at the latest if not by the end of this decade.

    Being in the medical field, I think it would be very possible that similar things might happen....just not super quick.

    What I could see happening is a quarter/eighth of what is being said. Maybe not a uterus transplant, but they might discover some useful way to actually use what's there, etc.
