Here’s a look back to the early days from 40 years ago. Stanford’s was a complete package from counselling, to physician, to practice, to surgery.
Compare then to today. There are differences and there are similarities, such as:
- Real Life Experience was a minimum of one year under Stanford (two years minimum total).
- Stanford issued a letter to your state and motor vehicles agency to change your name and sex designation.
- Changing your Social Security record was a simple change card.
- Stanford opposed transition at the same job and employer.
- Note the warning that you will lose orgasm following surgery.
- Marriage, whether as a male or a female, to a female was prohibited.
- Post-op anatomy did not require dilations.
Let me know if you went to Stanford – it’s time for an old home week re-union.
Thank you for bearing with another walk down this memory lane.
