Thank you for your acknowledgement.

One important thing that this author called out is how he felt after the hormone therapy. His advantage is he knows when the surges are coming, while CIS boys and men from the age of 8.

Does it ever excuse bad behavior .. never.

Women per the comment of a ticking clock start to feel the urges that men have felt, but they do have a community and experience by the time it happens.

Do note their are high libido women as teenagers too so I won’t discount them with a generalization.

But take that cycle of raw lust from no where it requires a man to shut down his emotions over and over and then have society state you aren’t a man if you show emotions and then also when the boy and man fails knowing you are the enemy …

It hurts.

Thank you again for your acknowledgement and for also taking the time to read this as a white CIS male it is appreciated deeply.
