They do this by preventing androgens from binding to the AR or by preventing the production of androgens. In contrast to androgens, antiandrogens are drugs that prevent the effects of androgens in the body. Consider this excerpt from a March report by an Australian transgender activist, entitled: But we must remember what was stated in chap. But it is at once too general and too vague; it would be applied differently by different persons, and it is incapable of being stated in mathematical terms. If bulls are kept apart from cows for a considerable time, homosexual acts occur amongst them; the most female being first sought, the others later, some perhaps never. The law runs as follows: The dandyism of men on the one hand, and much of what is called the emancipation of women, are due to the increase in the numbers of these epicene creatures, and not merely to a passing fashion. The sexual attraction is mutual, and this explains why sexual inverts so readily recognise each other. It is true that among those we call women are some who are meagre, narrow-hipped, angular, muscular, energetic, highly mentalised; there are "women" with short hair and deep voices, just as there are "men" who are beardless and gossiping. Almost at once the "boys" and the "girls" are dressed differently, learn to play different games, go through different courses of instruction, the girls being put to stitching and so forth. The term "sex change" is sometimes also used for the whole process of changing gender role "living as a woman" instead of living as a man, or vice versa , not limited to medical procedures. The Aziz Ansari case hit a nerve because, as I've long feared, we're only comfortable with movements like MeToo so long as the men in question are absolute monsters we can easily separate from the pack. Women are enculturated to be uncomfortable most of the time. Especially given the severity and permanence of decisions concerning transitioning.
