2020-11-10 questionnaire

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

It doesn't. It's a standard intake form - it asks for a lot of different things.

I'm really interested in why they ask this question. Is there a medical reason for doing so? (I was going to ask if there was a pathological reason for doing so, but that felt weird. Adding this addendum because this is a safe place to do so.)
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Interesting you were about to say it that way, because my guess was.. not exactly pathology, but that they're looking for correlations.. :-D Can't say about this treatment yet, but I always cancel `unnecessary' questions---I used to leave them blank, but once I saw someone filled them in without my permission---but if they insist I answer, I insist they explain it's relevance---sometimes they surprise me with a good reason.
I did a cursory web-search---the results were about the converse.. enlightening---I'd long thought one's own gender had nothing to do with the orientation, e.g. that heterosexual boys or homosexual girls were really gynosexual persons---but this seems to suggest that one's sexual orientation is, at least in part, relative to, at least some aspects of, one's own gender..
Do tell me, always, in what way I'm not good.. I'm not used to silent tolerance.

Could it be relevant to an individual's long-term goals and desired sexual function? I'm trying to think of not horrible ways to collect information that might be relevant to a doctor making suggestions that might have long term effects, and I'm failing miserably to come up with anything better than "painfully obscure dancing around".

I don't know that a choice of hormone therapy would make any long term difference, and I don't know that it wouldn't. I'm just trying to come up with any reason why that might be relevant.

A more difficult question is how hormone therapy affects sexual orientation. I'm unaware of any longitudinal studies, but from personal experience, my interest in the male of the species went from "no, thanks" to "well, maybe" when my brain started running on estrogen.

Still primarily/strongly female-oriented, but ... open-minded, in a way I don't recall being before.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.

That’s a great point that never occurred to me.
