I'm sure you're right.. if you want easily reversable effects. However
cross sex hormones are quite effective going either way (m->f or f->m) at
changing perspectives.

It's quite amazing how much "normal" male and female behaviors and thought
patterns appear to be homonally based.

Of course nobody has done a definitive study (try getting grant money for
transsexual research!) so all my data is either personal subjective or
hearsay... besides which I have no clue what a non transgendered person
would experience on cross sex hormones.
