'I felt weird having breasts and despised my ability to get pregnant.' This is the statement given by a writer who lives in Boston. Her name is Lore Graham. She doesn't identify herself as male or female thus decided to remove breasts and uterus. She doesn't want to stick in the stranger's body, and that's the reason she underwent two major surgeries. She had mastectomy and hysterectomy to 'harmonize' brain and body.
After the surgery, 'My abdomen hurt but luckily my vagina didn’t, and the doctor said everything had gone swimmingly.'
She identified herself as nor male or female and decided to go through two major surgeries. She doesn't want herself to identify as a woman because of the presence of a uterus and breasts. She chose to remove them rather than feeling uncomfortable with those body parts.
She wrote something for xoJane, 'I live in my own body, that I've customized to better harmonize with my brain, and it's working wonderfully.' She is feeling happy with the surgeries result. She had both the operations in summer.
Lore said, 'If desired, I put on a shirt. That's it. No bras, no binders, no support or compression, no back pain, no worrying about what type of shirt, nothing. It's f***ing great.' She says that she no longer feels stuck in a stranger's body, and it was her own decision about her own body, and that is empowering.
